About Marissa

I have been tutoring for eight years now with experience in SAT, SAT subject tests, and ACT preparation. I am very attentive and personalize study plans and goals to meet each student's needs. Subjects I have taught include math, earth science, physics, biology, chemistry and algebra. I studied economics and biology at Boston University and completed the premedical requirements. Most importantly, I know how to plan, study, and model effective habits that build academic success.

I volunteer as a big sister to an elementary student in Brighton. This has taught me more ways to keep someone's attention. It is also extremely important for me to connect with and encourage students I am helping. My schedule is flexible and I am willing to meet during weekends.

I am very enthusiastic and can provide references if needed. I truly put students' needs first to effectively engage them and improve their work!

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.
