I am an experienced government and writing teacher with Master's Degree in Government and Public Administration.
I have 21 years of experience working and consulting in federal, state, and local levels of government, non-profit and private sector. I have served as an elected official and my teaching experience includes grades 8 - college.
I have won awards from governors, mayors and, most importantly, provided testimony before a U.S. Congressional sub-committee on the success of a program I designed for the State of Idaho.
Government is an integral part of our everyday lives and I provide interactive assignments which are interesting, exploring and educational. Many of my students end up "teaching" their parents what they have learned as well as new resources to continue their learning.
I have taught classes in creative and technical writing and can help any age brainstorm, identify a thesis (topic) and how to organize thoughts into a research paper. I have helped many middle and high school as well as college students learn how to write better essays for written exams. I also serve as an essay rater for the California High School Exams.
I am considered an expert for government in program development and analysis and just finished a special assignment with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (federal). My passion to help students learn and understand how important their role is in government today is the reason I like to tutor.
I can help any student in any state with American government, state and local government, public policy, public finance, lobbying, organizational behavior and more.

Marlyss met all our expectations and more. Our daughter needed specific help in studying for a US Government semester final. She provided her with many different options to approach the final including discussions, mini-assignments that were engaging, practice tests, and gave her a huge dose of confidence. Our daughter respected her for her knowledge and education and the fact that she, in turn, respected our daughter as an equally bright young mind!! Worth a million dollars to a teenager! We only wish we had found Marlyss sooner but had never looked at Wyzant before this time.
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.
