About Marlys

I have tutored one girl in the past and taught several semesters at San Jacinto College as an adjunct professor. A long time ago I did some tutoring in a low income project. I have a Master's degree in Math and one in Telecom Management.
Occasionally I help my 12 year old Grand Baby with her math by checking her paper when she is finished. When I was working on my Master's degree I taught Business Math and Trigonometry at Lamar University.

I am retired from DuPont where I worked programing a mainframe, designing a training center, and managing a telephone exchange. I also owned a printing business where I installed printing software.



I make explanations very simple to understand and don't mind explaining many times in many ways. Prealgebra is where I have my most recent experience. I could teach higher math, but I would have to get a book and review my knowledge.

I want to help students become better at mathematics and therefore learn to like the subject. I want to encourage students and build on their strengths.

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.

Prealgebra

My teaching experience is as a teaching fellow while getting my Master's degree and more recently as an adjunct at San Jacinto College. I enjoy teaching Algebra most of all. It is important to meet the person's needs who I am tutoring and getting results.

Very patient! On time.

Great with kids. Flexible schedule. Good personality and very patient. My dtr is very cautious with new rooks and said she liked her.
