About Marlene

I have held elementary teaching certificates in Connecticut, Arizona and North Carolina and am seeking to renew my North Carolina certificate. I stepped down from a very successful long-term teaching career (expired certifications in three states and pending new or reinstatement in three states) in 2009 to move to Maryland with my family and to be available for my daughters who were entering the very crucial middle school and high school years. I entered the real estate market in Maryland where I had success, but was not as rewarding as my years (over 20) of teaching. These years encompassed teaching kindergarten, first, second, partial years in third and fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, as well as, Title I, special education, at-risk students and after school tutoring. I look back at my teaching career fondly with great pride at the accomplishments my students made each and every year and the academic foundations we built together, as well as, the confidence I saw gained by them in their own abilities.

I believe ALL students can and will learn given the means and dedication by both you, the student, and me, your teacher/tutor. I am still a stay-at-home Mom with a busy, but flexible schedule and can make time for YOU and help YOU succeed this year building your future success!

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 (K-6th)

I have over fifteen years of classroom experience as an elementary teacher spanning K-8 and covering three states. I have held elementary teaching certificates in Connecticut, Arizona and North Carolina and am seeking to renew my North Carolina certificate. My strengths while teaching seemed to gravitate towards the at risk seeking alternative ways to make them succeed - allowing them to learn and master the curriculum. Throughout my teaching career I taught using one-on-one, small group, whole group, as well as, integrating current technology. Additionally, I always kept abreast of current ideology to meet the needs of my students.

Elementary Math

Elementary Math Experience
- Title I Math tutor
- 5th grade remedial/at-risk math classes (four and half years)
- 6th grade remedial/at-risk math classes (one year)
- 7/8th grade math

Additionally, I have a math minor and have taught K-6 for almost 20 years.

Phonics

I have a master equivalent in elementary education with an emphasis on early childhood and have numerous years of experience teaching in the K-2 environment. I implemented AlphaTIme into my kindergarten program which is a strong N-1 Phonics based pre-reading/reading program. Additionally, I have attended national reading conferences (Metametrics' Lexile) and have been formally trained in the Spaulding program, which is a highly focused phonics program.
