patient tutor really gets to know her students needs

Communication is on point and provides students with abundance of resources and materials! Very responsive and has availability during times needed

Kristen, 6 lessons with Larisa

She is extremely patient and very well versed in her craft.

She's been a great deal of help with my writing assignments and presentations. When I dont understand something or need some advice she is always super pleasant and repeats or confirms things with me. She's also really great at double checking what your assignment expectations are. Her experience certainly has been a plus in my opinion :) Super pleased to have had her as a tutor. Hope to continue working with her on future assignments!
