About the Instructor


Marlene is an extensively trained and certified professional instructor. She serves as a mentor who guides your children through their work while providing direction, support and encouragement. She creates a study plan in addition to monitoring classroom assignments, and emphasizes the importance of accurately completing each assignment within a designated time frame. This has helped her students increase self-confidence, and develop the ability to edit their own work, creating well rounded capable learners. Like all Kumon Instructors, Marlene has a true passion for education and an earnest desire to help children succeed.

Our goal at the Kumon Math and Reading Center of Ossining is to help students become self reliant critical thinkers who can meet the demands of the Common Core Standards. We believe in breaking the reliance on a math and reading tutor for homework help and test prep so that your child can perform confidently in the classroom.

Biography and Background


Marlene and her team have been operating the Kumon Center of Ossining since 2000.  Their goal is to help make studying math and reading less frustrating for children, whether the student’s goal is to advance beyond grade level or to recover missing skills.  For students who are having difficulty in school, the Kumon Program is a great way to fill the gaps in their knowledge so they can feel more confident in their studies.  For students who do not feel challenged enough by their school work, Kumon offers the opportunity to study beyond their grade level.

The Ossining team is not like an old-fashioned one-on-one tutoring service where your child will become dependent upon a tutor for test prep and homework help. Marlene and her staff recognize the need for students to become self reliant, independent critical thinkers in our modern world. In order for your child to meet the demands of the Common Core Standards she believes in fostering independent critical thinking. You can enjoy watching your children grow into confident students in the real world; where a private tutor can't follow them to school. Whether your child is seeking enrichment, needs help catching up, or is just beginning his or her academic career, Kumon is designed to help him or her develop a love of learning.

Marlene’s daughters both completed the Kumon Program and found it instrumental in fulfilling their educational as well as career goals. She and her team have also helped countless other children find success and confidence through the Kumon Program.
