About Marisa

My educational background is in biomedical engineering. I love science and math! I was a university hired tutor at my college Cornell University for Calculus and Organic Chemistry, and I was also an Academic Excellence Workshop facilitator for engineering freshman math.

I specialize in elementary through college level math and science. I am a firm believer that practice makes permanent! I encourage my students to be patient with themselves, and I use multiple examples to ensure concepts are well grasped.

I am generally available Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 6pm - 9pm and on Sundays all day.

I would love to be your tutor. I look forward to working with you soon!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Geometry

I begin with a review of geometry fundamentals -- lines, segments, rays, and angles; coordinates and planes; shapes, areas, perimeters, volumes, surface area; transformations, congruence and similarity. For higher level geometry, I review algebra fundamentals, since many geometry problems require a proficient level of algebra understanding.

As an engineer, geometry was the foundation of my math education. In addition to academic expertise in geometry, I have experience tutoring geometry concepts, and have used them in my professional career.
