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.
