She adapts to his needs as she goes, and comes extremely well prepared. We discussed his problem areas and she went and drafted up notes and outlines to help him for next time she came. Very patient and reassuring to him so that he stays more focused and motivated.

I'm taking Quantitative analysis.It is a required course for my degree. Statistics is difficult for me. Marilyn's experience and good teaching skills has helped me to understand basic statistical concepts better. This is an online course which makes it difficult for me to grasp the concepts compared to a classroom. It is nice to sit down with Marilyn to discuss the assignments and identify the correct reference materials to use so that I can complete the assignments.

"Statistics, SAT/GRE Prep, Algebra, Research Methods, SAS, SPSS"
When working with students at the K-6th level, most of all I am sharing my own joy of learning and teaching them how to learn. I am certified to tutor reading, writing, English, grammar, spelling, vocabulary, study skills, elementary math and elementary science. I enjoy working with children of all ages and tend to make the lessons seem more like play than school "work." My students like my real-life examples, funny drawings, and tips on how to remember different facts (mnemonics). ... More
After years of struggling with dyslexia and dysgraphia, I finally took the action to get some professional help and I am so glad that I did. Although I am 34 years old and have managed to navigate fairly well through life and work, my lack of reading and writing skills have created fears in me that I am now realizing are not real at all. Thanks to finding a great tutor and coach in Hillary, I am embracing my disabilities and learning to work with them rather than against them... I highly recommend Hillary as a tutor, whether you are an adult looking for personal help or a parent looking to help your child, she is an excellent choice!

Teaching reading really excites me. I love to see students who have struggled with reading attain success! I use the Wilson Reading System, which is phonics based and was created for use with dyslexic students. There are two versions--one for small children and one for older students. The program is very effective for anyone who is having difficulties in reading. I taught Wilson for seven years for a school district, and have tutored using it for several years now. ... More

I would like to help and encourage you with your learning and studies. My approach to tutoring is to help you/ your child improve all round. I try to make things interesting and to provide understanding by explaining the "why's" and "what's" at a high level and at the detailed level. My goal is to ultimately assist you/ your child to endeavor to become self-supporting in managing one's homework/ studies.

"Certified High School Physics Teacher: Math and Science Tutoring"
Physics is my specialty! I've tutored students in all levels of high school and college physics, including regents, the SAT subject test, AP, calculus-based, mechanics, E&M, and modern. I excel at teaching both the concepts and problem solving strategies.
Physics requires looking at the world in a quantitative way that most students find novel and many students find difficult. I teach students techniques that are often omitted from classes, and tailor my explanations of concepts to each student. Often there is only a subtle difference between a correct approach and an incorrect one, and in ph ... More
