Named TOP 10% TUTOR OF 2020!!

Hello future students! My name is Marissa and I am an experienced, engaging, and professional teacher. I've taught elementary school for six years in Los Angeles, California with experience in multiple grade levels. I believe that no matter your learning style or background, every student has the ability to thrive in the classroom. My goal as a tutor is to help every student reach their highest potential and become independent learners. This begins by meeting individual needs. Learning should be engaging, fun, and challenging. I aim to remove academic frustrations and help students become confident, lifelong learners.

Having initially embarked on a career with the federal government, in 2013 I made the decision to follow my passion and pursue a career in education, undertaking a Masters Degree in Teaching and Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I completed my undergraduate degree at University of Southern California, Fight On! I am an avid reader, travel enthusiast, and die hard Laker fan. I look forward to working with you!

Unlike many, I love teaching math. I have created my own math curriculum, attended conferences, and received many hours of professional development on best teaching practices in math. My basic philosophy is that math should begin with hands on, tactile learning using real life problems and manipulatives. This helps students see patterns and make connections to prior learning and experiences. Once students begin to understand the problem they are solving, math lessons move toward concepts and formulas.

I love to read, and truly enjoy helping others become better readers. I have taught young children, focusing on foundational skills such as letters and sounds. I also have experience teaching older students how to dig deeper into texts to enhance their comprehension skills. Reading should be enjoyable and academic at the same time.

great tutor !

Marissa really helped my daughter figure out where she had gotten confused, filled in the holes, and got her back to understanding the material. We will definitely reach out again to continue to stay on track.

Patricia, 1 lesson with Marissa

Great Teacher

My 5 year old daughter really enjoys classes with Ms. Marissa! Very well structured classes where they learn sight words, read, and write. It’s a great extra help for a kindergartener who is learning how to read!

Raimonda, 15 lessons with Marissa

Personalized and efficient tutoring

We are so lucky to have found Marissa. She identifies what my daughter needs to know at her grade level and targets the gaps efficiently. She is firm and fun at the same time. Her classes are very enriching and enjoyable. If you need top notch tutoring services, don't look any further.

Olga, 50 lessons with Marissa

An excellent choice!!!!

Marissa is extremely thoughtful, energetic and welcoming. Our son immediately warmed up to her approach. We are noticing that he is picking up on her concepts and improving his confidence.

5 Star early education specialist!

We signed my daughter Violet up this summer for some pre-K work - letter and number recognition etc. With Marissa she has gotten so much more than that! It is obvious listening to her work with Violet that Marissa has stellar training and experience with early education. She knows just how to engage her and hold her attention with the right amount of letting her be a 5 year old and goof off. She not only works with her on the basic core skills she explores different concepts such as critical thinking, spatial recognition and story telling. In addition I think the Wyzant Dashboard and the video format is a great way for students to develop their skills in regard to interaction via video conference which is such so important in our current age. She recently did dibels over zoom with a teacher she never met. She was a little nervous with a new teacher but thanks to her Wyzant experience she was comfortable with the format and really able to do her best! Thanks for everything Marissa!

Great tutor!

Marissa is a very patient and knowledgable tutor. She knows how to approach my son and get him motivated to learn! Marissa makes sure to diversify lessons and to adapt to the situation. A pleasure to work with her!

Alla, 34 lessons with Marissa

Another Great Session with Marissa.

We hope to continue a long term relationship with Marissa. She is highly professional and creates great tutoring lessons 2x a week for my 6-year-old. We picked her specifically because of her knowledge of teaching "RIGGS" phonics.
