I am a Harvard Medical School student and a graduate of Brown University and the University of Pennsylvania. I have been tutoring as a volunteer and TA since high school. I'm especially passionate about biology (all levels, including college Genetics and Physiology) and K-8 math, but I can also tutor all K-8 subjects, high school algebra and geometry, as well as high school physics and test prep (MCAT, SAT, ACT, and GRE math).
I absolutely love learning and teaching, and I've been told by previous students that I'm great at taking different approaches to the material until students reach that fantastic "ah-ha!" moment.

Marissa is helping my son with math. My son is an excellent math student but has transferred to a school with an accelerated program and with my work schedule I simply do not have the time to sit down with him once a week to check in and review. Marissa has been great. She is thorough and patient (it is often difficult to get my son to sit still - especially after a long day of school). She is good at focusing him and humoring him when needed. And she has done some invaluable test prep with him as well as homework review. A great investment - for my son and my sanity.
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.
