About Marjorie

I am a Professional Bilingual Teacher (Spanish and ESL). I have taught for over 15 years in different classroom settings ranging from Kindergarten to High School. I have a certification from Louisiana to teach 6th to 12th Grade Spanish. I am also a writer exploring the craft of turning real life stories into a novel or script.

I have also tutored college students, and adults. I am passionate about teaching and tutoring. My students feel motivated when they are learning with me. I do my best to make my lessons FUN and PRODUCTIVE for my students. I focus on positive results.

I recently moved to Rockwall to be closer to my daughter and her family after my husband passed away in 2012. I am originally from Costa Rica where Spanish is the official language. I am passionate about traveling, research, theater, reading, and writing.

My fees are very competitive. I charge $20 for a half an hour session, and I give special rates for committed students who pay in advance for at least 7 sessions.

My duty to the students is to prepare lesson plans and teach the English language that includes grammar, writing, reading, speaking, and listening skills. It may also include teaching pronunciation and accent reduction.

It's basically teaching all the English skills that will enable speakers of other languages to effectively communicate in English.

And last but not least, to introduce cultural aspects to ESL students, especially those who are new to the United States.

Web Design

Web Design is a hands-on experience that is facilitated with learning how to use different servers in the internet. My function is to guide the students and facilitate their learning.
I tutor on all the basic skills for web site design and designing good usable web pages, through insight into the core thinking that supports the design of effective and usable web sites.

Using web sites should be easy and pleasant, just like a great experience in a shop, hotel, or library. I believe that the all Web sites can be made lovable - easy, rewarding and pleasurable to use.
