About Margie

When I decided to be a stay at home mom, we chose to begin our children's education with home-schooling. I taught my oldest son from kindergarten through 5th grade. I home-schooled by daughter from kindergarten through 3rd grade. At that point they were placed in a small traditional Catholic school. At that time I home-schooled by third child from kindergarten through second grade. At this point I began teaching at the school and continued having her as my student for the next two years.

Subsequently I taught at at this small private school grades 3 and 4 (combined class) for 11 years. This at times included by fourth and fifth child. In addition I worked with grade 2 on writing (composition) skills, as well as, working with 5th and 6th grades on writing skills; research papers, compare and contrast essays.

I prefer user friendly workbooks; i.e. A Beka and Modern Curriculum Press but will adapt to whatever materials the student is familiar with. At the most basic level, I have a great program to teach young children to read. My philosophy has always been to set students up to succeed rather than fail. I believe encouragement can go a very long way.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 Math

In addition to home-schooling the early academic education of my three older children, I taught 3rd and 4th grades at a small private school for 11 years.

Phonics

I home-schooled three of my children in Phonics grades 1 through 4. I used Modern Curriculum Press Plaid Phonics series. Following this, I taught Phonics at 3rd and 4th grade levels using the same curriculum.

Great beginning!!

Margie is teaching my 8 years old daughter, she is awesome! We definitely would recommend her as a tutor. She is kind and responsible and always talks to me about the progress my daughter has made. I greatly appreciated and my daughter loves to study with her. We are so lucky to find Margie!
