About Marsha

I am a New York Certified English teacher and have taught reading, writing and speaking skills to students of every age, from elementary school through adults. I break down the learning process, so that students can master one skill at a time. I employ a variety of teaching methods to meet the needs of students with varied learning styles. I have taught in a wide variety of settings, including public and private schools, an online college and individual tutoring. I am a consultant to the Educational Testing Service and help develop SAT exams. I have also worked with business leaders, coaching them in writing and delivering important speeches.

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.

Public Speaking

In addition to teaching public speaking in secondary English classes, I have written speeches for executives and coached them in their presentations.

Writing

I can help you improve your writing by organizing your paragraphs and the structure of essays. We can also work on sentence structure and grammar as well as building vocabulary.
