I have been a special education teacher for five years. I love working with students and their families. Because of my background, I am able to understand and help struggling students succeed. I have a teenage son who has Asperger's Syndrome, which is on the autism spectrum.

I love kids, I always have, and I understand a variety of struggles and don't judge. I look forward to this opportunity to help more children!

Marie goes over and above in teaching our Granddaughter. She knows her needs, and is very good at keeping her focused and on track. She is helping her to expand her reading skills and vocabulary in efforts to help her excel in this next school year. There is no one better than Marie!
Marie was really patient and kind with my son. He struggles with reading. She supported and redirected him, and it greatly improved his performance.
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.
