"Marilyn was recommended to me by a friend and she tutored my 10 year old daughter for about one year. She initially helped her with English but if my daughter was struggling with some of her maths then Marilyn would tutor her in that area as well.My daughter instantly connected with Marilyn, whom we found to be warm, friendly, firm but gentle. Marilyn is reliable, professional and the fact that she came to our home was very convenient. Over the course of the year she has helped my daughter with her confidence and ability in both English and maths. I would not hesitate in recommending Marilyn to tutor your child."
"And here is a message from Anthony
Marilyn knows how to get the best out of a person. I owe her a lot."
My introduction to Marilyn Martyn was through a tutorial assistance program called "An Even Start" due to my child having difficulties at school. I was sent a list of tutors in my area to phone.After speaking with Marilyn in detail, I had no doubt that I had found the right person for my child. In tutoring sessions, I have listened to her simplify explanations to my child in a manner that he can understand, and she has tapped in to help him release inner knowledge that he didn't know he had through lack of confidence. I am delighted as a parent to see my child's progress and grateful to Marilyn for her ability and teaching skills.Wendy
We have found that Marilyn Martyn has amazing patience and zeal, and does not accept the notion that it is too late to learn reading and writing. Marilyn knows that most people who want to improve their reading and writing skills can do so with systematic tutoring that is targeted to specific areas that need developing. Thanks to Marilyn’s teaching skills a family member of ours has developed reading and writing skills not mastered despite years of formal schooling.
We urge anyone who wants to improve their reading and writing skills to contact Marilyn and discuss how systematic instruction can improve any level of reading and writing skill in an amazingly short time.
"I am principal of a tutoring college in Melbourne, and our college has for many years used, and continues to use, Marilyn’s services as a high quality tutor, mostly at the primary and secondary levels. The fact that we have found her skills to be so appropriate for so many students over the years is testimony to her wide ranging ability. She has been equally successful in working with gifted children as with children needing remedial assistance. I have particularly valued her creativity in developing totally relevant programs for each of her students."
"As a colleague of Marilyn's for several years, she was my first choice of tutor for my son Anthony when it became apparent that he needed some support with his reading and spelling."Marilyn brought warmth and a sense of humour to the sessions and built a relationship of trust with Anthony. She was always patient, cheerful and positive when dealing with him and employed techniques that were at his level to build his confidence.Marilyn knew how to engage Anthony even when he was reluctant or a bit tired. His reading and spelling improved with the techniques she employed and he successfully gained his V.C.E. last year and is now undertaking tertiary studies.Marilyn showed a commitment to Anthony as a person and helped him believe in himself."
