About Larissa

I am 23 years old and am a graduate of Westminster College. I graduated with a bachelor's degree in English, which covers literature as well as spelling, grammar and punctuation. I have approximately six years of tutoring experience. While attending Westminster College, I also completed many different courses on teaching in a classroom.

I love tutoring students for a variety of reasons. I love watching their faces light up when they were struggling with someone and all of a sudden, something clicks and they understand whatever it was that they were struggling with. I love using the different strategies that I have learned in my classes to help a student learn. I love knowing that I am helping a student better himself/herself for their future and helping them to build up to their dreams and realize their full potential. I wanted to become a teacher and tutor students because, as a student, there were a few classes that I really struggled with, but some of my teachers were not willing to put in the extra effort to make sure that ALL of their students fully understood what they were teaching. While I do not believe in "spoon feeding" students, (which I definitely will NOT do with any of my students), I do believe that a good teach or tutor will use every possible strategy or method in their intellectual arsenal to make sure that a student understands what they need to learn. I have many different creative and fun methods to help students learn and encourage them to study as well. I always felt that many of my teachers made learning boring. While life is not all about fun and games, I strive to make learning fun for students because I find that it is the best way for them to comprehend and remember what they are learning, not just to memorize for a test and forget it later. I want to have a positive and lasting impression on all of my students! I look forward to meeting with you!

Although I do not have a degree in science, I have studied biology and anatomy quite a bit from high school into college. I also participated in anatomy classes for the fire department to qualify for an EMT position. I also have a very large medical history, and so I have always been very fascinated to learn how the human body functions, as well as other organisms. I have also studied weather patterns and rock formations as well.

I studied Spanish throughout my elementary years, and then decided to take Spanish as my language for my last four years of high school. I then studied Spanish for another year in college, bringing me to the intermediate level of written and verbal communications.

As I have stated in my profile, I studied English as my major at Westminster College for four years. I have always loved studying literature in school, and decided to continue my studies for my love of literature and the English language.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have! I really look forward to meeting you!
