About MarilynM
Joined June 2014
My name is Marilyn Martyn. I am a teacher, who specialises in teaching language, reading and mathematics skills to young children and early teens as a private tutor.

I have a dream and that is to develop an online business. If it doesn't come true as a member of this community, I will be responsible for my failure.

For most of my life I have been very restless always looking for other avenues to explore to complement my teaching career.

Despite some experience in publishing (sales and marketing), book shop management and customer service, I always returned to teaching as I had unfinished business and more to learn.

At present I have my own small business involving tutoring and writing.

I want to develop an online business.

But it has a learning curve. The direction this will go is still unclear but I am learning a lot about online strategies and will continue to do so.

I have some newly acquired skills and look forward to developing them further.

I have developed a website. This gives me a huge sense of satisfaction. I have done something in a new field of endeavour!

Hi Marilyn! Thank you for your follow! I was fortunate to receive guidance and help from Dr. Raymond Moore and his wife, that enabled my child to outgrow what would have been deemed dyslexia and would have become a learned habit if I had not taught him at home where he could outgrow what was truly just an immaturity of the eye and brain coordination. I love that you too are helping children so that they might have a joy of reading. I look forward to following your journey! Christa :)

Christa that is such good news. I think a lot of harm is done to children when we expect them to fit into an institution. I work with children who the schools can't help and wonderful learning happens.

Marilyn. Thanks for the follow. I am following you to.
I am with you Marilyn. My learning curve is about a mile long. I am still new at this computer. My wife learned to work on computers when they were punching pieces of cardboard to put into this big machine. I never did figure out the since of that. But any way Ginny(my wife) taught me about 2 years ago how to turn this marvel on and I had typing class in high school so, there you go. I am now trying to learn
Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp and starting on 2nd phase shortly.
Marilyn. I really believe in Wealthy Affiliate. I have been scammed several times, and several thousand dollars later.
Stick with Wealthy Affiliate and their training. Don't forget about the community. Get involved
Happy Trails Marilyn, and To Your Success.............Frank

Marilyn, I am visiting you "Teach Your Child to Read" site. I found it well written and engaging. I thought that you were encouraging and supportive.

I do have a couple suggestions:

I recommend that you add white space between each paragraphs. This can be done while in "edit page/post". This will make for an easier reader experience.

I also suggest that you play around with your video. I found that your side bar cuts it off so only part of it is visible. You might try inserting the link for the video in the visual editor vs text editor.

I think that you have done an excellent job so far! I left a comment on your skills page. Cindy

Why not begin by using it as a tool to promote your website where you have details of your courses and then when you are more familiar with it you can figure out ways to use it as a tutoring tool Better still I suggest you contact support and I am sure they would be helpful and intrigued to find a new use for videomakerx. They are always looking for suggestions for improvements.
Reply
MarilynM Premium
Thank you for a great suggestion Hilary. I will do so. They do seem very open to new ideas.

By the way Marilyn if you haven't got a logo you can get one on fiverr and there is a logo page where you can easily add it on videomakerfx

I do have a logo. It has been my focus for quite a long time. I am looking forward to adding it to videomakerx. Thank you for confirming I made a good decision when I purchased it.

If you watch the trainings a few times you will soon get the hang of it You can even use it to enhance your own videos and use your own music Play around with it and I think you will find it lets you create your own unique videos and be as creative as you like.
Reply
MarilynM Premium
Thanks Hilary I will. I will watch a few times. I need to because I can't see how they can be used as a tutoring tool.

Thank you for the welcome and great advice Jonicas. I was so sick of running around in circles and prayed for someone who could explain systematically what I had to do to establish my online business.
Prayer answered: WA turned up. I have been systematic in doing everything so far not skipping anything not jumping all over the place. I have made tremendous progress in a week!
Thanks also for your offer of help. I would like to take you up on that. I promise not to overdo it!
Best wishes

Hey Marilyn, great to have you here. I felt the same way when I was starting out, looking for an opportunity to supplement my income and it turned out to be MUCH more (been at this 12 years full time now and wouldn't change it for the world).

To be honest with you, there is no better way to build a business or create significant success than within the online world and you have absolutely everything you need here at WA to do this (including the support from me directly).

Just thought I would pop in and say hi and simply drop me a reply if you need a hand with anything moving forward.

Hey Marilyn and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate!

My name is Steve and I'm the owner of IveTriedThat. You signed up through me and as a thank you I wanted to help guide you around the site a bit now that you're here!

But first, if you ever have any questions or need a hand with anything, do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I am here to help!

As a new member here, there are a few things you'll want to do. Most importantly, you should add a short description and upload a picture. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and having a profile and a picture will really help get you acquainted here.

›› HOW TO KICK START YOUR INTERNET MARKETING BUSINESS ‹‹

You're here to build an Internet Marketing business and Wealthy Affiliate will help you achieve just that. To seriously get things moving into high-gear, I have a few bonuses I want to send your way.

I wrote out the exact steps I take to start a new website from scratch. This includes how I pick a niche, come up with content for the site, and monetize it. These are the EXACT strategies I use every day and I've been working for myself full-time since 2008. I know first hand that they work. :)

Anyways, thought I would just introduce myself and if you have any questions going forward, I am here and I am available. :) Wonderful to have you as part of the community here at WA, I know you are going to love it!
