About Marisa

I'm Marisa L, a first year medical student with an undergraduate degree in Biology. I love to tutor students and encourage them to get excited about learning and finding their passion. I especially enjoy teaching science. I have tutoring experience at a variety of age levels, from elementary school students all the way to college students. I have worked as an English tutor to Japanese elementary school students, and in college, I worked as a tutor and TA for several classes including Microbiology and Immunology. Currently I also volunteer as a tutor for middle school students in my community, helping with all subjects.

Outside of the learning environment, I have a lot of passions including dance, playing the piano, cooking (and eating), traveling, and volleyball. I love to connect with different people and enjoy talking to my students about their passions as well.


2013 B.A. Biology - Carleton College, Northfield MN
Current - MD/PhD Student - Loyola Stritch School of Medicine, Maywood IL

I received my B.A. in Biology from Carleton College in 2013. During my senior year, I was awarded distinction in my senior thesis investigating the HTLV-1 virus. In college, I did extensive research in biology labs in several different areas including immunology and cancer research at institutions like MD Anderson in Houston, TX. I also was a TA for the microbiology and immunology classes during my college years. Furthermore, I have spent 2 years as a post-grad working in a lab at the University of Colorado studying diseases like Crohn's and potential treatments.

Currently I am pursuing a dual degree as an MD and a PhD as I have a great passion for medical science.

I like to tutor students one-on-one. Please contact me if you have any questions and I look forward to working with you to improve your coursework, GPA, or testing needs.
