Math and Science Tutor
I've been a tutor ever since I was in high school, which inspired me to become a high school teacher. I used to volunteer tutor and then became a paid tutor at the University of Texas at Austin. I graduated from University of Texas at Austin in Dec. 2007 with a degree in Chemistry and also completed the UTeach program to become a certified Texas Science Grades 8-12 teacher.

I've been a tutor ever since I was in high school, which inspired me to become a high school teacher. I used to volunteer tutor and then became a paid tutor at the University of Texas at Austin. I graduated from University of Texas at Austin in Dec. 2007 with a degree in Chemistry and also completed the UTeach program to become a certified Texas Science Grades 8-12 teacher. I taught Regular and Pre-AP Chemistry, Regular and AP Environmental Science, and Aquatic Science at Hyde Park Baptist High School for 3 years. I'm now taking a break from classroom teaching and staying home with my 3 young kids, but would love the opportunity to continue to teach by being a tutor to help students learn in the way that best suits their learning style. In addition to my experience of teaching science, I have some experience with math tutoring for math levels Algebra 1 and lower.
"Helping students build confidence!"
Marilyn always asks what my child is studying in school that week then arrives very prepared, with extra materials to enhance the lesson. My child's Chemistry grades have already improved after only a few lessons with Marilyn. She's great!Marilyn, 33 lessons with Marilyn
Learned more in short time spent w/Marilyn than all year at school
Marilyn was fantastic. She explained and reviewed my son for his Chemistry final thoroughly. He felt better after the first session and in the second session, I really saw an improvement in my son’s confidence level as he understood the material so much better. I wish we would have found her at the beginning of my son’s school year, as he would have actually enjoyed it because of Marilyn.Ceecy, 2 lessons with Marilyn

Pre-AP Chemistry Help
Marilyn came to our first lesson with well preparations. I appreciated she knew the subject matter well. My girl did not show up on the first tutoring session as I did not let her know enough time in advanced. Marilyn ended up going over the detailed review with me. My girl read her notes afterwards and did the worksheet she recommended. She finally smiled! :-) I was happy, too. Many thanks, Marilyn!Mei-Ling, 35 lessons with Marilyn
Great tutor for my daughter
Marilyn has helped my daughter through some difficult parts of Algebra. Anna is able to ask questions and get the concepts cleared up. Marilyn has been able to help her greatly. She has been able to maintain an A average in Algebra with Marilyn's help.John, 11 lessons with Marilyn
Marilyn has a good persona and clicked well with my daughter on their first meeting. My daughter was happy with her teaching and told me she was knowledgeable.Jane, 2 lessons with Marilyn
Thorough and thoughtful
Marilyn jumped right in with my students to help them along, and brought helpful aids to accelerate their key areas of need. The students enjoy her calm and patient manner. Marilyn comes prepared with real world learning aids and experiments to demonstrate important subject matter concepts which the children really engage with. She is helping her pupils pick up the concepts much faster than expected.Cary, 18 lessons with Marilyn
