About Marisa

Hi! I am a retired California educator with 30 years of teaching K-5 grades in public schools. I have a reading specialist certificate from UCLA Extension Services. I have worked extensively with English Language Learners and struggling readers. I believe both phonemic awareness and phonics are critical components for students who have reading difficulties, followed by fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. I also believe writing should be used along with reading instruction thru the use of reading response journals and comprehension responses. I also enjoy teaching math and am very familiar with the Everyday Math curriculum used in many school districts in Colorado. I believe in a balanced approach of computation, problem solving, concepts, and application.

I currently work for the Adams 12 School District as a substitute teacher and am a volunteer tutor with Whiz Kids of Denver. I have tutored both 4th and 5th graders in Whiz Kids. I have references available upon request. I would love to work with your child to bring them up to grade level and build their confidence as well as literacy and math skills. I hope you will consider my experience and love for teaching as you select a tutor for your child.
