About Marissa


Bio

I want to instill passion for reading, writing, and history in my students. I believe making a student care about what they are learning is the first step to improvement. I also plan to use technology and hands on activities as I believe these are the best ways to get students engaged. Let's not sit down the whole time and try to truly experience the material! In the summer of 2014, I tutored in ESL/ESOL in Rome, Italy for six weeks. It was an amazing experience and I learned so much about...

I want to instill passion for reading, writing, and history in my students. I believe making a student care about what they are learning is the first step to improvement. I also plan to use technology and hands on activities as I believe these are the best ways to get students engaged. Let's not sit down the whole time and try to truly experience the material! In the summer of 2014, I tutored in ESL/ESOL in Rome, Italy for six weeks. It was an amazing experience and I learned so much about communicating content to both native and non-native English speakers. I will be starting my last semester of college in the Fall of 2015 to earn my degree in middle level education (grades 4-8) language arts/social studies. This past spring I did an internship at a middle school in an eighth grade social studies classroom where I assisted in the classroom and taught a few lessons. I also tutored students with reading and learning disabilities at my internship site. I love to read, travel, watch movies and TV shows, and play with my two kitties who I talk about too much. But they're cute so I can't help it!

I love to read and write. It is my first passion. My goal by the end of our tutoring is for me to find a book that you absolutely love. There is one out there but you may not have found it yet. As I said, I believe in hands on learning. We will play games, create, and have fun learning to read and write!

I believe experiencing history is important for students. I don't want to make you memorize a million facts and dates but I want you to understand the importance of events and how they shape how we live today. I come from a family of travelers and it is also interesting to me to see how the past has shaped some famous places in ways that a lot of people do not even know about.

Please feel free to contact me at any time. I am opening to meeting anywhere (within reason) or online.
