## Larissa is amazing!

Li, 3 lessons with LarissaHelped me so much, very patient too! I loved working with her. She also puts in the effort to prepare before the class, which I really appreciate.

A Harvard graduate with a BA in Mathematics and a PhD in Applied Physics.

I am a patient teacher and love to help students feel more confident and at ease with math. I take joy in finding creative ways of explaining mathematical concepts and I live for those Aha Moments - which is when the student understands the concept.

I have a strong passion to be the best tutor I can be and I am very invested in the success of my students. I always say that my job as a tutor is to work myself out...
