Hi, my name is Marissa, and I am an Ivy League-Educated Tutor available for one-on-one tutoring. I have been tutoring and helping students with homework since high school, and enjoy working with them to reach their full potential. I have extensive experience tutoring in Math, English, Test Prep and general subjects. I received a 2130 on my SAT's in high school and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a dual degree in Computer Science and Fine Arts in May of 2011. I took 9 AP classes in high school and was a member of the National Honor Society. I am also a member of several elite tutoring services in LA, but am always looking for private clients.

I am free to tutor most weeknights from about 7-9 p.m. and most Sundays (starting as early as 10 am). Please feel free to contact me with any question you may have.

I am also available for lessons in computer graphics. Specifically, I have extensive experience with Photoshop, Maya, etc. I currently work in the VFX industry and am happy to work with students looking to learn more software and techniques.

I have tutored 13 students in the Los Angeles area over the past 2-3 years. Subjects have ranged from ISEE Prep to General Homework Help. All of the students I have tutored in ISEE Prep have been accepted to and attended their first choice Private Schools. Please contact me about SAT rates and special rates based upon subject and lesson frequency.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Drawing

I have loved to draw since I was a child. I have a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Pennsylvania and took supplementary classes at FIT and Parsons. I continue to use drawing in my job as a VFX artist and have TA'ed Art Classes in the past. I love teaching students basic and advanced drawing techniques!

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored students as young as 3rd grade and can identify with students of this age. I participated as a "Big" in the Big Brothers, Big Sisters program, as well. I will work with a student on the subjects they are studying in school, as well as creating an individualized plan to supplement their schoolwork. I try to identify the areas that need improvement, and work to develop them by utilizing my extra study resources. I like to try to keep school fun with building strong foundations as a primary goal at this age.

ISEE

I have been tutoring the ISEE with a private company for the past 2-3 years. I like to use practice tests and construct an individual study plan for each student to guide them through the areas of the material that they need the most work in. I also teach test-taking strategies specific to the ISEE that allow students to maximize their score. Every student I have tutored in the ISEE so far has been accepted to their first choice private school.

Maya

I work in the Visual FX industry and use this software as part of my job. I also studied this software when I was in school. When I was in College, I TA'd for a class for introductory Maya techniques, and an advanced class for modeling characters in Maya. In the past I have taught students by having them develop and light/render a character from start to finish.

Video Production

I work in the Visual FX industry and use contemporary software/techniques as part of my job every day. Primarily, I utilize Nuke, Maya, and Photoshop.

While in college, I led many classes for students in my major to learn the production pipeline. I enjoy working with students developing their own projects and assisting in bringing the quality to the next level.
