I LOVE Science. I am fascinated by the Natural World. I am always getting scientific news feeds to see what else someone has figured out.
I also LOVE teaching. I have been teaching for over 35 years. Never a dull moment. The next best thing to finding out about things is sharing what I have found out. My classes are never ordinary!!

Come find out. It is all about you!

I am comfortable teaching Earth Science, Life Science, Ecology, Geology, Astronomy, Physical Science, and Nutrition.

About Marie M.

I'm 67 years old. My home is surrounded by trees, squirrels, birds and flowers. I've been teaching science for about 35 years in private schools, public schools, technical schools as well as online. I retired from public school about 10 years ago but I never stopped teaching.

The best part of what I do is seeing your face as you make the connections between what you knew and the information we shared in class that day. It is exciting!

We use lots of pictures, videos, research, creating models or drawings, and experiments you can do at home with your family. We use every kind of learning you can think of and maybe a few you may not know!

I have always taught science. It's fascinating and it is never ending. We are curious aren't we! It's learning how your world works. It is ever changing… the world we think we know and what we think we know about it. We are always finding out new things. Some of that means what we thought in the past might be wrong. That's ok. What is the new answer??? Let's find out together. What do you say???

I offer:
1) Private lessons - Tutoring on an as need basis or regularly depending on the goal of the student. 30-60 minutes as you prefer.
If you prefer to complete an entire subject as a review or personal interest class, you can choose by semester or year. Semester classes will last 18 classes. It takes 36 classes to complete a year study program in each subject. 60 minutes/class, typically 1 or 2 classes per week;

2) Small-group classes of no more than 6 students - same as above;

3) Personal enrichment or Continuing Education Classes, purchase 5 week increments. 30-60 minutes/ class. These would include catching up on a subject, study skills, research/ term paper tutoring, project building, exam preparation, introduction to a semester subject class (18 classes in total length),

Ms. Marie is methodical, explains the concepts well, and gives great study techniques. I also found it beneficial that during our session, she asked about my specific learning styles.

Marie is an enthusiastic and detailed teacher. She has a great ability to explain complicated concepts with visuals and unique approaches. Her love of the subject really shines in her teaching. I highly recommend Marie as a science tutor.

Marie teaches with great enthusiasm, and it's hard not to get excited when your teacher is so excited about the subject. She has a true appreciation for how things work together, and it's like she helps you put the puzzle pieces together to see the cause and effects. With Marie, it's not like you learn tons of individual facts and memorize a bunch of stuff that you'll forget later. Instead you learn how one thing affects another so you can understand cycles and processes in Science. Plus, she has a great sense of humor and loves to laugh, so that makes learning fun.

Marie is a super enthusiastic teacher! She loves life, everything in it and explaining how it got here. She’s very knowledgeable about science and wants you to be too! She has helped me better understand everything from the formation of gems and the intricacies of carbon dating to complexity of the atmosphere and the vastness of our universe. Marie loves to teach and her enthusiasm for science and the details of the natural world is very contagious.

Marie is an awesome teacher! She helped me pass an incredibly difficult chemistry class with a teacher who was bad at communicating clearly. She uses great illustrations to make complicated concepts simple and clear. She is enthusiastic about the subject, which keeps you from getting frustrated, and can help kindle at least a mild interest in the topic. She is flexible, and can work with different time and attention levels. We also have great conversations about rocks, as we are both geology fans.

I have known and learned from Marie for many years. She is a dedicated, thoughtful and enjoyable teacher who truly enjoys what she does, but with knowledge of the her subject I only wish I could acquire. Her students value her as a teacher, a counselor and as their advocate for individualized, student-oriented learning. As a tutor she brings the same level of enthusiasm and student-specific training with many long-term and returning students as proof of her teaching and tutoring abilities and success.
