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,...

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.

## A Math and Problem Solving Expert

Aside from being very smart at all things math, Marlene is prompt and gets right to the point. Whatever questions you have, she knows how to explain the material as well as work spreadsheet software and the functions therein. You eventually find yourself gradually learning software like SPSS. You know, I must say... What at first appeared Greek to me, now makes sense since Marlene taught me how to navigate the software and what symbols mean such as sample size and population mean. I'd say Marlene is both a human calculator and a human statistical thesaurus. Very blessed to have her as a tutor.
