The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery. - Mark Van Doren

Hello, and thank you for considering me! I am a Cambridge University CELTA-certified English/ESL teacher, a magna cum laude graduate of Tufts University, and a dedicated educator. I have tutored and taught adults, youth and children in private lessons, the public school system and through nonprofit educational organizations for more than twelve years.

As a teacher, I have three important priorities: 1) to help student...
Timmy found Marie helpful in prepping for the CBEST essay. Will return for more!

Marie is helping my sophomore son with his writing for English class. We couldn?t be happier. Marie takes the time to go through the nuts and bolts of writing for my son?s rigorous class. I can see that his writing is improving. Marie is helping to make homework and home life less stressful.
- Dorothy M. from San Francisco, CA
We?ve had Marie work with our seven-year-old with a learning disability on reading and writing for a few sessions. From the initial interview and the subsequent lesson plans and summaries, it is apparent that she is a true professional on this: knowledgeable, methodical, and patient. We feel lucky having found her and look forward to continued progress on our child?s learning.

Marie was wonderful. She came to my house without issues. Then she helped my don with his paragraphs so they can flow smoothly. She edits his Grammar and puts sentences so they would have the correct syntax. She even rewrote his sentences. Wonderful.
- Jean M. from San Francisco, CA
Marie is very strong in Spanish grammar and helped my son pass tests he was struggling with. He enjoyed his time being tutored. She was flexible and easy to work with.
- Jeneane C. from Pacifica, CA
My son was reading books and explore history. He loves the lesson. It was a lot of interesting things to explore and read and talk. My son like to work with Marie. Her lessons are very interesting and she know to teach my son.
- Pia G. from Pacifica, CA
Marie is a gifted teacher with a knack for understanding a child's learning style and an intellectual curiosity about learning which is truly inspiring. She showed more patience with our foster child from West Africa than any person who has ever worked with him and spent hours getting to know his language and structuring lessons around his strengths and weaknesses. He came into his own as a student on her watch, and it was remarkable to see.
- Marcia G. from San Francisco, CA
Marie is an outstanding tutor who had an excellent rapport with my son. She is very caring and patient and makes sure that the needs of her students are met. When I was looking for a tutor for my son, I was impressed with Marie's credentials, her responsiveness, and her detailed explanation on how she would be able to help my son prepare for the SAT/ACT Reading, English, and Writing examinations. Marie's style of teaching is very organized, thorough, and methodical. She was able to provide great test taking strategies which helped my son achieve excellent scores. She also helped him to become a better writer. Marie is very friendly and personable and my son enjoyed having her as his tutor!
- Cynthia W. from Pacifica, CA
My son's tutoring experience with Marie has been exceptional. He recently received an A- for his 6 week marking period in Spanish 3/4, which is a big improvement from his Spanish 1/2 grades last year. And while I am happy with his recent grade, I am more pleased by the fact that my son is feeling more confident and engaged in learning Spanish, and as a result, he is more focused on learning a subject that does not come easy to him. Marie has been able to make her lessons challenging and engaging for my son without making Spanish feel boring and like work. She is patient, and really cares about her students. I would recommend Marie as a tutor for any student looking to learn and improve their Spanish.
- Carol M. from Millbrae, CA
Marie's tutoring in both English and Spanish has really been an effective tool for me to both understand and pick up quicker Spanish. Marie is an excellent tutor. I am very pleased with her services. Thanks WyzAnt!
- Deborah B. from Pacifica, CA
Marie is such a patient, enthusiastic, and well-informed tutor! She is always well-prepared for lessons, and goes the extra mile to find something interesting for me to work with. She is open-minded and cares what I want to do. Marie always has answers to my tricky questions on English grammar. Thank you for helping me improve my English, Marie!
- Nobuko H. from Burlingame, CA
Marie is a very good tutor!! I can say she is a great teacher in all aspects. She is very kind and considerate to patiently lead students to find their own path of learning and, most of all, motivate students to keep going on their interests in English. I'm really enjoy the time with her and can find my speaking and listening comprehension significantly improved through the classes. Thank you Marie!!
- CAmila P. from Daly City, CA
Marie has done an excellent job in tutoring our 5th grade daughter in writing and composition. We wanted our daughter to have a boost in her writing skills since it was her weakest area academically even though she was getting average grades. Marie proactively reached out to us upon seeing our listing, and has been just as proactive ever since. She met with us to get to know our daughter a bit and learn about what we were looking for. From there Marie designed an approach tailored to her style of learning, and her strengths and weaknesses. After just a few lessons, we have seen our daughter's writing develop a more solid foundation and as well as deepen in style appropriate to whatever the assignment is. Marie has been very hard working, patient and accommodating, and I would recommend her as a tutor to any student striving to improve their writing.
