My interest has always been in the teaching of mathematics, and how we learn and apply the tools of the subject. It has been interesting to observe and participate in the evolution of the pedagogy. In many ways the pedagogy has changed, and in some ways it has remained the same.
I started mathematics teaching in junior high school. I have taught junior high school, middle-school mathematics, high school mathematics, and freshman and sophomore college mathematics. Several mathematics...

Knowledgeable, encouraging, and patient tutor
Marlene is dedicated to helping my niece and myself reach our fullest potential in understanding the concepts of Mathematics, Algebra 2, and Statistics. She is able to hone in on our specific learning styles, assess our weaknesses and teach us accordingly. We are so blessed and thankful that she is enabling us to become more confident and stronger learners. She is a true Professional and the greatest tutor ever!

Great tutor
Very patient and great at understanding my needs. Look forward to more lessons! I have always struggled with math of any kind, but I have a feeling Dr M will help me achieve my passing of this course.

Extraordinary Teacher/Tutor
Dr. Marlene L. worked with my granddaughter and comfortably moved from one topic to another bringing Kaitlyn along, and checking for understanding as she progressed. I was so impressed by this approach and her calm demeanor. Kaitlyn has worked with tutors previously and she said: "Marlene is the best."

Very Knowledgeable and Patient
Marlene knows how to break down difficult concepts so that they are easy to understand. Since this is my first statistics class she did a great job of helping me understand the language of statistics which in turn helped me when I was reading the content for the first time.

Friendly and very knowledgeable
In just one lesson my daughter walked away feeling more confident than she has in a long time. They accomplished so much, and we look forward to the next lesson.

Marlene is the best!
I found Marlene through Wyzant. She responded to my emails right away. My daughter is in the 6th grade this year. We decided to meet a week after school began to see what she will be working on. We met at a library in Montclair. I was pleased that Marlene gave us an opportunity to work with her. My daughter enjoyed learning from Marlene. She is a joy to work with. My daughter received passing grades on her quizzes so far. We are pleased with all that Marlene has done for my daughter. Thank you!

Tony, 6 lessons with MarleneTutor responded:Tony, Thank you the feedback. Thank you, also, for the later notice of your son's passing his Algebra 1 SOL. The hard work paid a dividend.
The BEST!!!!!
Dr. Marlene is working with my 8th grade daughter for her Algebra I exemption exam! She makes my kid WORK the problems through and easily identifies her shortfalls!! I hear lots of laughing and my daughter now thinks algebra is fun and her grades have gone from mediocre to the top of the class.
Belinda, 19 lessons with MarleneTutor responded:You have aptly described what we do. Thank you for your comments.
Super helpful!!!
Trigonometry is really hard, but I'm already starting to get the hang of it after one lesson- she's super funny and nice too! If you need help with math I highly recommend her!!
