About Marguerite

Dear Student,

I care about your unique qualities and educational needs. For ten years, I taught elementary students in a multi-age classroom and through that experience, my focus is on the individual: I offer custom-fit learning.

As a teacher of students from Grades 1-8, I supervised student teachers, and daily welcomed college students majoring in Education into my demonstration classrooms. I directed student plays, involving scenery, costumes and music.

My teaching style is organized and friendly. Streamlining lessons to meet your needs, coaxing your imagination and placing success within your reach, I strive to integrate what is important to you into my lessons.

Let's have a conversation,
Marguerite

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.

ADD/ADHD

As a classroom teacher, I have wide experience working with ADD/ADHD students. My take away? These learners benefit greatly in a one-on-one setting. There is less distraction, more individualized attention given and stream-lined lessons prepared. Importantly, learning strategies accompany assigned lessons.

Cooking

With a great deal of experience in gourmet cooking, I started a successful business in catering that lasted for one summer. I was hired by individuals to prepare a meal in their home where, on average, six people would gather for a dinner party. I planned, prepared and served the meal in three courses. I know how to create many delicious vegetarian meals, meat dishes, and ethnic cuisine. My philosophy is to buy local, cook from scratch, and offer an array of color, texture and flavor in each presentation.

ESL/ESOL

I have experience teaching English as a Second Language. As a volunteer with Reading Connections in Greensboro, I taught a group of students from all over the world: Palestine, Thailand, Ethiopia and Mexico. They learned every-day word usage, grammar, phonetic spelling, reading and writing. We talked about individual cultures and traditions, and those in the United States. We shared our country's traditional food at a picnic in a state park where family members were invited to attend.

Through Wyzant, I have tutored adults from China and India.

Guitar

I teach beginning guitar to students of all ages, from 8 to 52. As a professional vocalist, I accompany myself on the guitar using an array of chords to audiences of as many as two hundred. I am an accomplished performer and know exactly how to make playing beginning guitar easy and fun!

Phonics

For ten years, I taught Phonics in grades 1-4 as a certified teacher. Presently, I teach six ESOL students as a volunteer in my community, using Phonics as a foundation to understand the written English language.

Public Speaking

I have spoken in public many times: as a grade school teacher, Sunday School teacher, Commencement speaker, radio DJ in Portland, ME (WMGX), as a spokesperson in several TV interviews, and speaking in church. I am a professional singer and have soloed with an orchestra, a swing band, and a folk group.

Special Needs

I received multiple hours of training through a special needs organization, Momentum, in Casco, Maine, an organization that provides services to individuals who are developmentally disabled. In this capacity, I administered medications, provided home care - 24/7 -and generally managed day-to-day life in a home setting. I helped these individuals with organization, time management and life skills.

Study Skills

I teach proven techniques to make study time efficient and organized. Students prepare for tests and projects with confidence. My students regularly score high marks on standardized tests.

Voice (Music)

As a professional vocalist, I have performed at many weddings, church services, funerals and birthday parties. I sang as a soloist with a swing band, with a 40-piece community orchestra, and as part of a folk ensemble. As a participant in community theater productions, I have played leading roles (requiring a strong vocal and stage presence). Professional voice lessons have considerably expanded my vocal range.
