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.

Bright, extremely knowledgeable Online Tutor
Marlene made herself available to my 14 year old daughter on just 90 minutes notice, patiently tutoring her in preparation for a quiz tomorrow in an honors geometry class. Marlene frequently knew what my daughter was asking even before my daughter had finished the question, masterfully instructing on concepts with which my daughter was struggling. This was the first time we had requested an online tutor from Wyzant. We could not be more pleased by how well it went -- largely, I expect, because of Marlene's ease and familiarity with the material and very kind and gentle manner. I highly recommend Marlene as a tutor and fully expect we will be seeking her services again in the near future. Thank you, Marlene!

To the rescue
My daughter has been working with Marlene for pre-calculus, and she has been really helpful to her. Marlene is also always ready to make time to help, even on her busiest days. She came to my daughter’s rescue the other night when she was panicking about her Accounting 1 test and it was too late to find an accounting tutor. Although Marlene doesn’t tutor accounting, she knew enough about Accounting 1 to help my daughter with a few concepts and she ended passing the test. Thanks Marlene!

Marlene is the best math tutor you could ask for. All math-phobes listen-up!
Marlene was the best math tutor I could have hoped for. I've been out of school for 40 years and needed to pass the math Praxis. Very difficult test. Marlene understood my challenges and helped me to understand and master the math for this test in a way I finally understood. Her method is understanding, patient and very very efficient. She finds a way to help you understand that is appropriate to your learning style. If you are a math-phobe like me, or haven't been in school for a while, this is a sure bet.

Very knowledgeable and relatable.
Marlene is continuing to improve my understanding of calculus and statistics. It has been very helpful to supplement on-line school classes. Her explanations have been very good and she challenges me to not give up when I have trouble.

Valuable Instruction and Assistance, Patient, and accommodating
Was able to help with both specific questions that I had, and was able to show me the overall process on how to complete certain statistical problems. Marlene was very helpful, patient, and also accommodating to any other issues or questions that popped up. Lastly, I was doing this all manually, and she explained the value of using a statistics calculator in the future! Thank you, Marlene

Stats Tutor
Marlene was patient and friendly. She demonstrated each question with a diagram as well as a verbal explanation. She made me feel comfortable enough to ask any question regardless of its difficulty, or simplicity. I can't wait to use her again!

Very knowledgeable and made it far easier to understand
I am no math major nor do I feel comfortable with formulas. She helped me see the why in what I am doing versus just doing it to get an answer/number! Thank you
