About Marissa

I graduated college with a degree in engineering, and have done very well in the many required math classes, including algebra, geometry, pre-calculus, and calculus. I graduated high school with over a 4.0 in technical subjects, and have since only strengthened my mathematical and teaching experience. I also received a score above the 94th percentile in the math section of the SAT and GRE, and view both tests as a series of enjoyable puzzles. During college I developed a deep appreciation for they way different approaches to a subject can drastically effect one's understanding of that subject, so I try my best to tutor in creative and flexible ways.

I also have a passion for biology, and am currently pursuing a master's degree in bioengineering.

I have greatly enjoyed being a teacher's assistant for a high school engineering course, a graduate student mentor to high-school students, and a tutor, and would love to work with anyone who wants to improve their understanding of math or sciences!

Please contact me about tutoring for any high school science or math course covering the subjects listed!

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.

MATLAB

I received an A in Introduction to Matlab during college, and have been applying Matlab skills to both educational and professional projects since. While working at an international biomedical engineering company for two years, I used Matlab as the foundation of a set of automated characterization tests for an imaging technology under development. This required controlling motors, reading in data, performing calculations on data, and presenting data. I also spent two weeks helping high school students learn how to use Matlab to conduct electrical engineering laboratory experiments.

knowledgable and patient tutor

Honestly, I have never seen my 16 yr old son work so diligently as when he sat down for his second session with Marissa. Her soft-spoken encouragement and clear explanations motivated him. She did not tax his brain with too much talk. Geometry is his most challenging subject but with support I believe he's going to succeed.
