About Marissa

Long before I became a journalist, writer, editor and author I tutored on the side. My experience ranges from coaching my classmates as a high school student to teaching English to Nepalese children ranging in ages from seven to 18.

Now - as a journalist who has written for publications from the Daily Mail and The Guardian to Essence and Cosmopolitan (UK) - I want to help students develop their writing skills and gain confidence.

A Modern History graduate of Oxford University, I am skilled in research, consuming a lot of information, formulating a convincing argument and meeting deadlines. I'm very keen to share this information, especially with high school students poised to go to college.

I am a working journalist, writer and editor and author of two books. And I understand that writing can be hard. There is nothing more intimidating than a blank page but, as successful journalist, I can show you how to overcome that fear and meet that challenge head on.
