what clients say
“My son is a special needs child which has resulted in him utilizing at least 6 tutors. Far and away, both he and I agree, that Marcie Tau was the best. I normally do not make recommendations but in this case, I wholeheartedly recommend Marcie Tau as a tutor.”
– Richard, ACT/College Planning Dad
“I have been going to see Marcie Tau for tutoring the past few months in regards to the TABE examination. Before sitting down with her and going over my flaws with math, grammar, and language I was doubtful of tutoring actually working for a person who has been out of school for so long. Without her hard work and passion for what she does, I wouldn't be prepared to move my life forward into a better position; she really takes the time to get to know your strengths and weaknesses so that she can assist you in the best way possible. I would recommend her to anyone who needed help because she is a truly talented teacher and educator.”
– John, TABE Student
"I don't even where to begin! Marcie Tau is the best tutor that I could ever ask for. She has been tutoring me for 5 years now and has helped me so much. When I was in high school, I could never pass the FCAT reading, and it was a huge struggle for me. I was told by my intensive reading teacher that I can substitute the FCAT with the ACT. My mom's friend recommended Marcie to us, and that's when she started to tutor me. Thanks to her, I passed the ACT (after taking it one time) and met my graduation requirement. She prepared me for the FTCE General Knowledge and is currently preparing me for the FTCE Math 6-12 that I plan on taking in a few weeks. I know and she knows for a fact that I will ace through this test. Coming from an ESE student, I strongly recommend everyone to work with her. She has a way of teaching the material that makes it very easy to understand. She can help just about every learning style out there. I don't know what I would have done without her.”
– John, ACT/FTCE Student
“I asked my daughter what she liked about working with Marcie for her ACT tutoring and she said that she was able to explain things in multiple ways if she did not understand at first. She also gave her many helpful tips for taking the test including best ways to pace herself through the different sections and how to handle questions she did not know the answer to. She gave her many practice tests. She said that she felt very comfortable working with Marcie and never felt funny about asking her anything as she does with some of her teachers at school.
As a parent, I found Marcie very easy to work with. When we first met, she took the time to figure out what our goals were and answer all my questions. I wanted my daughter to start tutoring earlier and Marcie recommended different timing based on when my daughter would take the ACT. As a result, I saved money which I really appreciated. I felt that her rate was very reasonable for one on one tutoring. My daughter took the ACT a few months ago and we were extremely happy with how she scored. I am very stingy with recommendations, but I would recommend Marcie without hesitation.”– Lisa, ACT Mom
“There are many ways to describe Marcie, although I do not feel written words do justice to her many achievements, passionate personality and dedicated professionalism. Marcie agreed to tutor me for the FTCE, specifically the math and English conventions sections as I had previously failed miserably. At the beginning of our tutoring sessions, I was very insecure about my math and basic grammar skills. In fact, prior to meeting Marcie, I felt I might lose my current job as a teacher because I could not pass the test and would be automatically terminated. However, Marcie not only taught me the material, she taught me how to believe in myself and have confidence in my own ability to be successful. As a teacher, I know that being able to change a child’s mindset, let alone an adult's, is a very rare and powerful skill, and Marcie has utilized this skill in all of our tutoring sessions. Being able to raise a student’s proficiency in a subject is a battle in and of itself. Being able to make a student believe in themselves and look beyond their previous failures is another thing, and in my opinion, an essential talent when working with students in the classroom. Marcie and I worked together two to three times a week, honing in on my weaknesses and improving my strengths. She gave me practice tests and evaluations to determine my current understanding of the material. Finally, after all of our hard work, I passed the FTCE ! Words cannot describe my gratitude for Marcie. She is a role model, a mentor, a teacher and just an overall amazing individual.
– Nicole, FTCE Student
"There are no words to describe how incredible, caring, and excellent Ms. Marcie is. She first tutored my sister for SAT/ACT prep but also started tutoring me about 3 years ago. Under Ms. Marcie's help, my SAT score has increased well over 100 points. She not only tutored me for test prep but also math and whatever I needed. Ms. Marcie helps you in a way that is specialized to you. She finds out your strengths and weaknesses and caters to them to make them stronger. She genuinely cares about you and your success, making it a priority so you can succeed. I would highly recommend Ms. Marcie to anyone looking for a tutor or test preparation.”
– Juliana, SAT Student
“I cannot say enough about our experience with Marcie as my son’s tutor. What sets Marcie apart from other tutors is her ability to teach so many different learning styles. My son has a learning disability and needed tutoring for preparation for the ACT. He was not even close to getting a passing score before we met Marcie. The teaching technique she used for my son was perfect, and he was able to grasp the lessons. As each week went by my son’s anxiety level dropped and his confidence grew. We were fully informed regarding how each session went and where my son needed to be in order to pass the ACT. My son not only passed the ACT, he passed in on his first try after being tutored with Marcie!! My son is now in his second year of college! Once in a while someone special comes into your life that you know you will always remember and be thankful for, and that person for us is Marcie.”
– Kerri, ACT Mom
“My HS Senior was able to improve his SAT scores within weeks of working with Marcie. She was extremely patient with him, quickly deciphered the areas he specifically needed to work on, and offered invaluable hints/tools in order to achieve his best test results. I'm happy to say that with Marcie's guidance and positive attitude, my son confidently took his last SAT and received scores high enough to receive a BF Scholarship and get him admitted to his college of choice! I would highly recommend Marcie to anyone in need of academic tutoring.”
– Debra, SAT Mom
“There are no bad things I can say about Marcie. Ms. Marcie has helped me through my ACT and my SAT and many other things. She has not just been my tutor, but someone I can talk to about a bad day or anything else. I highly recommend Ms. Marcie.”
– Marissa, SAT/ACT Student
“Marcie is amazing! She is sweet, loving and dedicated to what she does. My son did so much better on the SAT because of her. He actually looked forward to tutoring with her twice a week. I am so grateful for what Marcie has done for my son.”
– Kelly, SAT Mom
