I am passionate about tutoring (ap. 400 clients) and love seeing the lightbulb moments!

Methodology

I start each new teaching assignment with an assessment. I then design student specific programs where we can have fun as well as learning. I often use games, and try to invent creative ways to learn.

Background

I am a writer and educator. I have taught in many diverse areas, with writing and academic coaching being key. I have taught about 400 people of various ages and working with a raise of 1 grade point on average.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $20/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $18
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $15

Details

Assessment will take one hour and is free of charge.
Those who cancel within 24 hours will be charged the tutoring fee for that session.
I do occasionally do in-your-home tutoring and charge $0.30/mile for driving.
I prefer a minimum of 10 hours working with a student.
If you know adults who need help academically or professionally, I also tutor them, at a higher rate of pay.

When I required an editor, Martina took care of the business. I wrote many letters and articles without using an organizational strategy, a thesis, or accurate grammar. Martina pointed out my technical errors, and pushed me towards better writing. She read my documents thoroughly. She is an excellent editor. Martina's expertise and relaxed demeanor make her an effective tutor. She promotes the purpose of your assignment, whether that is a class project or a letter to the local paper. I have also been given assignments by her that improved my writing craft and my success in writing contests. You could not make a better pick for an online tutor than Martina.

Martina is so gifted in many areas. She's very independent and has a lot of experience taking care of all her own situations. She has excellent knowledge in her field of social work and other endeavors. She has volunteered as a Chaplain, chosen for Team of Advisors at Patientslikeme. Her own health has created much knowledge navigating advocacy in mind, body and spirit. She is an excellent teacher and has been a trusted friend as we've enjoyed our relationship for many years.

I met Martina in a writing group over 6 months ago. The group met in person and now meets via Zoom. Martina's writing features good storytelling with strong emotion. Her comments to the other's on their writing is always thoughtful and helpful. -- Lynn M 5-13-2020
