About Marie

Hi Everybody,

My name is Marie, and I may be the ideal tutor for you!

I am currently a second year social work student at NYU, and I have 3.5 years of tutoring experience, in addition to several years of counseling experience with children. Before enrolling at NYU, I earned a Master's degree in Clinical Psychology from Columbia University (I majored in general psychology as an undergraduate student at Vassar College), and started tutoring shortly after graduation. I worked for a year as a tutor for the Academic Advantage, and have now been working for WyzAnt for two and a half years. As part of my work, I tutor students in Math (pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, and general Math), Language Arts (including English, reading, vocabulary and writing). and test prep (GED, GRE, SHSAT, SAT).

Besides tutoring, I also have a lot of work experience as a substitute teacher and teaching assistant in various classrooms. I have experience with students of all ages, including extensive experience with individuals who have special needs.

In general, I favor a "hands-on" approach to teaching that involves a lot of interaction between the tutor and student, and concrete experiences in addition to worksheets. However, my specific methods vary according to the subject being taught and the learning style of the student.

I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Aspergers

I am interested in tutoring people with Aspergers because I am very familiar with the condition, and with the emotional and educational needs that come with it. In addition to earning a Master's degree in clinical psychology, I have worked in several schools for students with special needs, and all of these schools had students with Aspergers.

I also worked for a full year in a residential treatment center with emotionally disturbed adolescents, some of whom had Aspergers, I babysat for a little girl with Aspergers, and I have tutored students with Aspergers. I believe that this experience makes me a qualified tutor for students with this condition.

Elementary (K-6th)

I may be the ideal tutor for your elementary school child!
I have a Master's degree in psychology with an emphasis on child development; I have taken multiple elementary education courses, and I have about 7 years of experience with school age children, much of which has been in an educational setting.
In addition, this past school year, I have tutored several elementary school students, and significantly improved their grades and test scores. I prefer a hands-on approach to tutoring with this age group, although will occasionally use worksheets in addition to more engaging activities. I look forward to hearing from you, and possibly providing tutoring services to your children.

ISEE

I am qualified to tutor for the ISEE, because I have 4.5 years of tutoring experience in test prep, and I am familiar with the test. I have also tutored a couple of students for the ISEE, and they did really well on the test.

Phonics

I recently graduated from Columbia University with a Master's degree in Clinical Psychology. I have experience teaching students to read, including students who have special needs. I have experience with teaching the sounds of the letters, as well as letter combinations.
