About Marsha

I am a retired elementary teacher with over 27 years of experience. I was a third grade teacher for many years and also taught Basic Skills in grades K-6. Most recently, I've tutored children at a local learning center.

I enjoy working with children and helping them gain self-confidence as they improve their reading, writing, and math skills. I feel it's important to make learning a positive experience for the student.

I love writing, and I am enthusiastic about teaching children how to express their thoughts clearly and creatively. I have taken creative writing courses, and I have been a member of a local writing group and poetry group since my retirement. I emphasize the importance of vocabulary skills in reading to improve comprehension.

I have had many years of experience in teaching elementary students. I give the student support, encouragement, and positive feedback.

I use phonics in teaching reading if the student has difficulty decoding words. Knowing how to break down a word into segments gives the student a tool to help sound out an unfamiliar word.

Please contact me if you are interested in learning more or if you would like to schedule a lesson.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am qualified to tutor Elementary (K-6th) because of my educational background and my teaching experience. I received a B.A. in Elementary Education from the University of Massachusetts. When I moved to New Jersey, I applied for and received certification in Elementary Education here, as well. I taught Basic Skills Math, Reading, and Writing in the elementary grades, and I was a classroom teacher for many years.

Phonics

I am qualified to teach phonics based on my educational background and teaching experience. I had numerous courses in teaching reading, including phonics, in order to be certified in Elementary Education. As a classroom teacher and basic skills teacher, I helped students who were having difficulty in their classroom reading program. I used phonics instruction as a way to help the students break apart unfamiliar words and become stronger, more confident, readers.
