Marie

I graduated from Harvard University in 2012 with a B.A. in Sociology and Government. During my time at Harvard, I tutored various social science courses. Immediately after my college graduation, I joined Teach for America and taught 3rd and 4th grade in a failing public school in Jackson, Mississippi. After I finished my two year commitment with TFA, I moved to Dallas. For my primary job, I currently work with Dallas ISD as a data analyst. I intend to eventually go back to get my Masters in Education and possibly Statistics to continue my career in education policy.

I tutor pretty much all elementary and lower middle school subjects, as well as the subjects I tutored in college such as Public Speaking, Psychology and US History. I enjoy teaching test prep as well because I love easing students' test anxiety with strategy. As someone with dyslexia, I have a lot of strategies that help both student with and without learning disabilities remember information and understand it.

Outside of education and work, I enjoy sailing, which I have both participated in and coached most of my life. I walked on to the Harvard varsity team my freshmen year and ended up racing at nationals a couple years later. Athletics were a huge part of my college experience so I know how hard but important balancing academics with athletics can be. This caused me to be very organized and disciplined with my study habits, which is definitely something I try to impart on my students.

While I think that organization and discipline are important for learning, I also know that fun is essential. My main goal with my students is to foster a general love for learning that persists beyond a specific test, subject, or even my time with them.
