Retired Actuary Tutors Math
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. We all learn differently and my focus is to present material in various ways to determine the best way for each student to master the material. Explanations are key and my approach includes detailed solutions where appropriate, that students can use as a guide to help learn the topic.

Excellent, Kind, and Patient
Before the lesson, I had no idea what I was doing on how to simplify trig functions. We worked through various different types of problems and finally everything began to click! She was extremely helpful and answered all my questions until I fully understood. She kept me very engaged during the whole lesson and I left feeling a lot more confident than an hour ago. I took my quiz today and got a 100! Thank you Marlene

Great tutor
Marlene is a very busy tutor. She’s a pro in numbers. She can figure out just about anything given the chance. It pays to work around her busy schedule. Which is a testament to how good she is with other students. I’ve used her in my Stats and Finance class which I’m glad I did. It won’t be my last. She’s awesome & super nice! And is able to talk through a problem as she’s doing the work, so you can follow the steps in real time. Don’t pass on this one! She’s as advertised!

Marlene helped my son understand concepts that he’s having issues with. I reached out to her 2x at the last minute and she managed to accommodate us...just recently we have last minute tutorial for an exam, my son got 94 (pre Algebra). Thank you Marlene for your help. 😊

Very helpful
We worked on preparing for the math section of the SAT. She was patient and offered good tips. She was helpful as we worked through problems and she was well prepared with practice math problems. The online format was good.

Excellent and kind tutor.
Marlene is by far the best tutor I have worked with. I found her sophomore year the night before a test when I had no idea what was going on in my class. Even though she is on the East Coast, she made room for a 2 hour slot until past 10PM PST (1AM Eastern!!) to help me with a few hours notice. Later that school year, she helped me with many more concepts in Honors Precalc, and I felt she explained the concepts much better than my math teacher, with a ton of care and organization in how she introduced and explained concepts. Now that I am in AP Calc, she is helping me with more concepts I don't understand and she's as amazing of a tutor as I remembered. I actually look forward to and enjoy my 1-hour tutoring sessions, and the same cannot be said for my actual Calculus class. :) You can tell how much Marlene loves math and teaching. She is funny, caring, dedicated, and really feels like a member of your team when you're learning math. I am so grateful I found Marlene, and I look forward to continuing to work with her.

Marlene taught me a lot, and I'm very thankful and appreciative of the knowledge she has helped me attain. Statistics is extremely hard, and she's already helped me so much. I'll be continuing to learn from her as much as I need, and I recommend you do the same.

Marlene was a great help. She knows her stuff. I would've never passed my pre-calc class without her. With math a hour can fly by in an blink of an eye. Marlene makes the most of each hour. She understands that apart from learning the material your still being graded so she tries to get you through the material and then taking you back to deeply explain. For me that was key because I'd be broke if it we're done any other way. This semester I went from a 54%, to a 72%. Thanks Marlene, I really appreciate it. I can exhale now!

Awesome tutor
Marlene was awesome! She was very nice and funny! She make me feel comfortable to ask questions and she answered them well. I came to her in desperation before my test and not knowing much. I feel way more confident now. She really is great and knows her stuff and will help you know it, too! Overall, great tutor!

Very knowledgeable and easy to work with
Marlene helped me with probability questions for a college level math class. She was easy to work with and very knowledgeable about the subject at hand. I would definitely recommend her.
