Our tutor spotlight for April shines on Marian (pronounced MaryAnn) Seidman. Marian brings over 20 years of teaching experience to Back to Basics, 10 years in elementary ed, then adult literacy for another 10 years. She holds both Bachelor and Masters degrees in education, as well as being certified for Elementary Education and as a reading specialist.
Here at Back to Basics, Marian instructs elementary level and high school through adult students in literacy, driver’s education (manual only), earth and general science, geography, life skills, reading, including the Orton-Gillingham program, social studies, and special education. She also tutors math and writing at the elementary level.
When she’s not tutoring, Marian LOVES to garden. She also enjoys baking and reading. Marian was born in North Jersey and has lived in North Carolina and Wisconsin. About 20 years ago, a proposition was made to her husband to take over his family’s appliance business. His acceptance led Marian and her husband to relocate to PA, just over the DE line, where she currently resides. Marian has a grown daughter and an 18 month old granddaughter whom she absolutely adores!
