About Marisa

I love helping students overcome writing anxiety and learning to be confident in writing and reading skills! I've primarily worked with K-12 students as a credentialed classroom teacher, although I've also taught at the college level. I went to a prestigious University and earned two graduate degrees. I find that keeping a sense of humor, a relaxed attitude and a positive attitude helps students thrive.
I've worked with lots of students who have unique learning differences including IEPs, 504s, lack of motivation and students who are weak in certain skill areas. I'm confident that I can give all my students the support they may need.

I have experience as an English Teacher for middle, high school, and college students. This enables me to effectively teach literature, reading, writing, speaking, vocabulary, grammar, and executive functioning.

I'm looking forward to supporting you on your path to confidence and success!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

I taught fifth grade as the main classroom teacher for 2 years. I have a Masters degree in Education.

I have been an English teacher for many years with a credential and advanced degree.

I have a California state credential in teaching English with a specialization in English language learners. I also have a Master's degree in Education.

Handwriting

I currently teach fifth grade students how to write in cursive and give cursive lessons and assessments. I provide examples with model cursive writing and guided practice by teaching the process and the desired outcome. I have been tutoring students in this subject as well for many years. I use dotted lines for students to practice and then ask them to rewrite selections using proper cursive.

I have a California teaching credential and a Masters degree. I also taught credential and Masters students in the School of Education at UC Davis.

Proofreading

I have a BA in writing, a MA in education and a teaching credential in English.

Writing

My BA is from a top tier university in writing. I am a credentialed high school English teacher as well as an elementary teacher. I hold a MA in education and I am partly through a PhD in education.
