My name is Marlene and my motto is "Math is fun." You've heard that before and you may not agree but it's true. My goal is for my students to agree with this statement as well.

Explanations are key and my approach includes detailed solutions where appropriate, that students can use as a guide to help learn the topic.

Thank you
As an adult going back to school, things aren't exactly easy. Marlene put me at ease and her math abilities are second to none. I can't say enough how much I appreciated her patience and willingness to help me through Algebra and Calculus. Thanks again!

Easy to work with
I liked that she was patient with me and understood the questions I was "afraid" to ask. She helped me make the most of our time and didn't have any issues with answering or helping me understand the answers. Thanks Marlene.

Very knowledgeable
Demonstrates an expert understanding of the subject and explains it in ways that are easy to understand. Marlene has helped me pass Algebra in the past and I have confidence in her ability to help me grasp this subject as well.

Incredibly supportive
She has been so helpful with prioritizing the importance of certain concepts, giving explanations that connect with real life situations, and not judging when she needed to explain concepts more than once. Wonderful!

Math praxis
I had an online tutoring session with Marlene to prepare for my upcoming math praxis. She is very knowledgeable and helpful! I am looking forward to working with her again.

Knowledgable, patient and effective
Marlene tutored my daughter on her SATs. She felt comfortable with her right away and wanted to make her proud. Marlene focused where she needed help and her total score went up 120 points. In a pinch we also had Marlene help her younger brother before a test on material he didn't understand and he got an A after one session. Marlene kept the applicable pace that was right for each of them individually.

She goes above and beyond to ensure that you understand and to deliver the correct information. She responds in a timely manner. She is great and I will definitely work with her again!
