Retired educator with a passion for igniting a spark 3rd - 6th grade students struggling in school!

I am a retired educator (22 years) with varied experiences. Most of this time has been devoted to 4th - 8th grade students. I have also taught in the gifted program. My primary subjects are Mathematics and Science. Although, I can also give instruction in Reading / Language Arts / Writing. I believe in hands on activities and the use of manipulatives. I find that students do better with things they are actively involved in and can relate to. I have received several honors during the span of my career which really inspired me, and I was very grateful for. But, truth be told, no higher honor has come to me than seeing or hearing from a former student that I made a difference in their life! I tear up every time.

Marlene's Practical information

I teach homework help, academic tutoring. Lessons are available for the following levels: primary school, junior high / middle school

I give lessons in person at the student's home.

Marlene's Experience

Since retirement, I have been tutoring for several years. I have seen noticeable improvement in students who struggled learning multiplication facts. Also, writing skills in "types of writing" have improved in several students in fifth grade. These have been parent reported.
