About Marta M.

I have all the right credentials to tutor a child: a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and a teaching license from the State of Utah. Also, because of almost thirty years of teaching experience, I have what it takes to be able to listen, explain, encourage, and make every one of you feel special. There's no problem so great that we can't solve together. I love working one-on-one with children! It's very important to me that all of you feel smart, no matter how old you are. I am so happy when I see the light come on in your eyes and feel your excitement when you know you can do something!

I love teaching Grammar and Reading! They are probably my greatest strengths. I know the parts of speech, sentence structures, the six traits of good writing, and how to take what I know and teach it to you. I want to help you learn that grammar is a trusted friend, writing helps you communicate better with everyone, and reading opens the doors to the world around you. Every lesson I design is based upon the Utah Common Core Standards. I see what you should have learned in the past, what you should be learning right now, how much you need to learn, how far you need to go by the end of the year, and design my lessons to accomplish those goals. I let you know each day what our goals are and what we need to do to reach them.

I teach Phonics and Spelling with flashcards, games, and writing. Five to ten minutes of instruction is all you will need every day. I teach you the basic rules, then reinforce it in every subject. I will often remind you of a rule when you ask me how to spell something. That helps you remember it so it gets stuck deep in your brain. My tutoring sessions are fun-filled, engaging, and never boring! Please contact me so we can get started on the road to your academic success!

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.

Phonics

I have six years experience teaching phonics through the Spalding Spelling curriculum. Methods of teaching included direct instruction, flashcards, games, and repetition. I am able to teach Phonics successfully because I make it fun, interactive, and interesting.
