Greetings! My name is Marissa H. Currently I'm in college pursuing a degree in English. I plan to immediately get my masters in General Education after I graduate in May 2014. I come from a family of teachers and am excited that I will become one soon! Currently I am working at a tutoring center in Manhattan as an assistant to the educational coordinator. Previously, I was tutoring students aged five to thirteen. I genuinely miss teaching and helping my students progress. I feel confident tutoring in the English field at any level! Specifically, I'm a great help with proofreading, spelling, grammar, literature, and writing. I use many creative techniques to help students remember key points in a visual and a verbal way. I also take pride in helping students in history and science. I have also administered test state practice tests and have seen vast improvements in my past students. I make learning seriously fun!
I have danced since I was 5 years old. Growing up in my dance studio, I became close to the teachers and they saw potential in me to student teach. I would help choreograph, fix forms, and teach the terminology in ballet. In high school, I began dancing in different areas other than ballet. I've also accompanied my previous students on field trips to the ballet, to get more of a visual learning of ballet.
I have experience with a tutoring center tutoring children aged 5 to 13. I have administered practice tests and helped make various subjects fun! I like using creative ways to help students remember key points in English, Math and Science. For younger students, I enjoyed using visual aids and singing songs to help them with their spelling and grammar. I was also trained using the Orton Gillingham method. I have plenty of materials and workbooks to help elementary aged students. I feel confident with tutoring K-6th because in my previous tutoring job, my students have dramatically better test scores than before starting sessions with them.
