Texas Woman's University (Elementary Education)
Thank you for taking the time to look at my information! I am a 1st - 8th grade certified Texas educator with 20+ years experience in the classroom. My certification allows me to teach all subjects in any grade, 1-8. During my career I have taught everything from art to a 5th/6th grade self-contained multi-aged class. I have experience teaching all subjects to a variety of ages including 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade.
Since many of my students have learning needs that require a specialized approach, I am very comfortable and capable with a wide scope of students.
Currently I teach 4th grade math in Allen ISD. Math is my specialty, but by no means am I limited to just that. If you choose me as your tutor I will devote much time and effort in helping your child reach their greatest potential as a student. Thank you for taking the time to look at my information!

My 3rd grader drives me crazy each week as to when she "gets" to go see Mrs Marcell again!!! In the short time we have been using her tutoring services, my daughter's interest in math has completely bloomed. She loves the 1:1 instruction. Marcell has challenged her and encouraged her and we plan on continuing tutoring until we've mastered 3rd grade math and created a solid foundation for my daughter!!!
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.
I hold a lifetime Texas teaching certificate for all subjects in grades 1-8. I have taught in an elementary setting for the past 17 years. My experience includes K-5th grade art and teaching all subjects in a self-contained classroom for grades 3, 4, and 5. In addition, I have taught math and science in a departmentalized setting for 5th grade.
I have been teaching for 17 years. During that time I have had many opportunities to help students improve their study skills. There are skills I use specifically for math problem solving and skills used for a range of other subjects. I use note taking, mnemonic strategies, flash cards, plus a variety of other methods learned over many years of teaching.
