About Marilyn

Hello! My name is Marilyn, and I recently graduated from Rutgers University with a bachelor's degree in Communications. During my college experience, I knew I wanted a mentoring and tutoring opportunity so I became involved with the after school program offered by Youth Empowerment Services (YES) in New Brunswick. The students that I assisted were mainly 4th and 5th graders, and attended various schools from the district. Through the after school sessions, I worked towards improving their reading and comprehension skills as well as their writing and speech skills. Journal writing really allowed the students to take what they have absorbed (from their choice of reading books) and transfer it into summary form. I have discovered that for me, the most rewarding experiences come with a lot of patience!

At Rutgers, I registered for an introductory course that opened up many doors for me. Through the course, "Intro to Mentoring" I was given an academic framework which was provided to increase my cultural sensitivity and background knowledge to better serve students in need. With high-energy and enthusiasm, I attended Roosevelt Elementary School and collaborated with other mentors to organize learning activities and meet homework objectives. The third grade group of students that I mentored were equipped with the my full attention and were encouraged to always ask questions! I am motivated from this point on to tutor, mentor, or guide students in the best way I know how!

After graduating Rutgers, I decided to teach English abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina. After the month of the training and teaching experiences through the program offered at BridgeIDELT, I received my TEFL certification and was interested in using my newly acquired skills to teach or tutor those interested in learning English in America. So here I am, today!

If you are looking for someone who is very easy going and forbearing, please consider contacting me! I want to help you fulfill your language learning experience to the best of my ability.
