About Marcia

I have had a love for working with children since I began at 13 years old working at a summer camp. I have been in education for the past 35 years as a special educator. I was responsible for case management, setting up education plans and then implementing them. I have also worked with small and large groups for all basic skill areas. Being a tutor is great because a child is getting that much needed 1:1 that is often required for a struggling learner.

Outside of education, I have been an active member of my local volunteer fire department for 28 years. I am certified in CPR and basic First Aid. I am also an active church member in my town.

I have been exposed to several different math programs and tend to pull bits and pieces from them to meet my student's needs.

I have used the following reading programs: Explode the Code, Success For All reading program and several others. I feel that each program has their merits but again it depends on the student's needs.

I have worked with elementary aged students all my teaching experience. I also feel that due to the difficulties I had in school that I have a first hand knowledge of how hard it can be.

The Success For All reading program has a very strong phonics component as does Explode the Code.

Overall, I just really enjoy seeing a student "get it" and the excitement in their face when they realize it.
