About Margo

I am a retired elementary school teacher. I miss interacting with my students and watching them learn, which is why I want to tutor you! I am extremely patient and absolutely passionate about teaching! I love the face of a child who 'gets it'!

I am completely bilingual in English and Spanish, and have taught both. I was also an EFL/ESL teacher for a few years, before becoming a classroom teacher. I speak rudimentary French, Italian, and Portugese. In addition to language, I love Math and enjoy teaching kids to love Math, too! I love to drive and will be happy to tutor you at my home or yours.

I don't like to brag, but during my last year of teaching, all my students reached 'proficiency' level on their PSSAs. I love Math and I want you to love Math, too. I want you to see it as a game, a puzzle to be solved.

I was the highest grade in the English Certification Exam in Puerto Rico. I studied linguistics, as well as ESL/EFL teaching techniques at Georgetown University. I am a spelling and grammar freak. I love language!

As a native Spanish speaker, I can help you sort out any issues you might have with this beautiful language!

Message me for any additional information. I can't wait to meet you and start our learning journey together!
