About Marie

Hello,

Choosing a tutor is not an easy task; I have an English-based Master's Degree from UNCC and have been a tutor and editor for many years. My specialties include: English, writing, test prep (SAT, ACT, TOFL, GRE, MAT), ESL, vocabulary building and handwriting. I can also teach elementary and middle school math and science. At University, I specialized in Religious and Children's Literature, Gender studies and fan culture, but I also have a strong general literature and writing background. I have written many essays and papers ranging from 10-70 pages and am comfortable with the writing, research and analysis process. I also have experience as an editor and have been editing for over ten years.

I love learning and education and want to help all students to grow and learn to love learning and education. I firmly believe that anyone can learn and can be excited about learning, but sometimes people have to learn at different paces or in special ways. I want to help to maximize your potential by helping you to learn in a way that is most comfortable and easy for you. Through a one-on-one relationship, I can gauge your needs and where you excel and we can work together to try to make learning fun.

Working one-on-one, I want to make sure that you understand what you are learning and not just repeating or memorizing verbatim. We will work together on creating a plan for you to follow which will include at-home work that will last beyond our time together. I want to give you tools that you can use in the future. I also want to have a dialogue open where you can tell me what you feel works best for you. Unlike at school, and the one-on-one setting allows for flexibility and lets me cater lessons to your unique learning needs and strengths. I am here to help you succeed.

If I seem like someone who you can work with, please contact me. I truly want you to succeed and want to help you be a good, engaged student. I look forward to meeting you and working with you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Ballroom Dancing

I have had over four years of lessons in American smooth. I can intermediately teach the Waltz and Rumba, beginners in Foxtrot and Tango. I often instruct couples at formal events on the basics of each dance.

English

I have taken many English and Literature classes on a Graduate level in University; in my academic career I have written many papers ranging from 10 to 70 pages. These papers have included original and textual analysis as well as public presentations on these points.
