About Marsha

Graduating from a teachers college gave me the skills needed to quickly evaluate a child and the approach that I would choose to make learning interesting, fun and most beneficial. My experience has been in public schools and private. Children love to learn and my passion is to be a part of that. Raising a family of my own, I have much compassion for the student who is having difficulty understanding and I've learned how to come along side and gently encourage and stimulate.

I know how to create a relaxed environment for trust and achievement. Having taught children with learning disabilities has given me many skills and of course seeing their achievements and their smiles when success comes is quite a thrill for us both. Teaching children to read is most rewarding and when they grasp it the whole world opens up. One can travel anywhere by opening a book and consuming the contents. I have a positive approach to life and it spills over into my way of helping someone to learn. I have yet to work with a child unable to do that. My style is very understanding with compassion and insight. Working with someone who is not confident is a strength of mine.

I am qualified through grade twelve.

I taught my four children at home through grade twelve.

I have worked with several phonics programs. Phonics is the key to good spelling and reading.

Tutoring is a great way, one on one, to learn just about anything. It seems to happen much quicker than in a group situation. My availability is flexible and convenient.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Homeschool

Having homeschooled my four children through grade twelve has given me many skills in all subjects.
Life skills were taught and learned in order to have a good schedule and to complete the days school work. Flexabililty, when needed, helped our day to be successful and reach the goals of the day.
All children have strengths and weaknesses that need to be addressed. Working with both, probably on a daily basis helped me to be more proficient in many areas.

Phonics

Having used several phonics programs, I found what works well and had great success with it.
Children who do not have a grounded experience in phonics simply have difficulty in reading and spelling. Sometimes, it is practical to back the child up in phonics in order to become a good reader and comprehend. A relaxed safe environment is pretty essential for someone having difficulty with phonics.
