Hello Everyone,

My name is Marhissa. I am a recent graduate of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a BA in Biology and a Minor in Psychology. While in college I enjoyed assisting middle school and high school students learn various topics in math and science. I am new to WyzAnt but I have been working as an SAT tutor for nearly ten years tutoring high school students (9-11 grade) in SAT Prep. I have also privately tutored students in essay writing, arithmetic, pre-algebra, algebra and phonics in addition general biology and chemistry. I have a passion for helping struggling students in math and science and reading and I love to see and hear their progress as a result of their understanding the material.

I favor one on one tutoring because I will be able to understand their individual needs and abilities for the subject, but do not mind tutoring students in groups of three to five to ensure that each student has complete understanding of the material. When I tutor science and math, I find that analogies and real world application help students truly understand the concepts. I prefer to tutor General Biology, pre-algebra, and algebra, but I am more than capable to tutor students in freshman-level General Chemistry and Physics and Psychology. I am excited to work with parents and students. I look forward to hearing from you!

Great Tutor!

Marhissa tutoring made a huge difference. I felt like my writing was not the best that I thought it should be, but now I feel really confident In my writing. I'm a better writer because of Marhissa, and now I feel like I can conquer anything.

Lewis, 10 lessons with Marhissa

Very knowledgeable and very patient

She helped prepare me for the Geometry Regents by going over past Part 2 and 3 from older Regents. She helped me figure out proofs and we went over the needed formulas.

Malinda, 1 lesson with Marhissa

Subject Expert and Study Buddy

My son is homeschooling. On Algebra 2, Marhissa is able to bridge the content gap between the online material and the required textbook. That only comes from knowing the subject and understanding the student.
