About Marisa

I am a teacher, a traveler and a writer. I love to combine these three interests as much as possible. As a lifelong learner, I often write about my experiences and reflect on the lessons they have taught me. As a teacher, I bring my enthusiasm for learning into the subject matter in order to aid my students in their own understanding and growth. I currently teach English to international college students that want to pass the TOEFL and continue onto a university in the United States.

I specialize in writing, reading comprehension and English as a Second Language. In addition, I am an experienced English/Language Arts teacher for all grade levels. As an avid reader, I use my passion for reading and teaching skills to help students in deciphering more difficult texts for themselves.

I have always enjoyed various forms of writing and am able to break down the necessary elements, including grammar, structure and organization. In doing so, I have aided several of my students in formulating and editing short essays to extensive research papers successfully at the secondary and collegiate levels.

I recognize the individual needs of my students, and cater lessons and instruction to meet those needs in the most effective ways. My base rate is $40/hour and I am available to tutor in person or online Monday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons from 5pm-9pm and Fridays from 1pm-5pm.

I hope to work with you soon and support you in reaching all of your goals!

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.

ESL/ESOL

I studied English and ESL at Rutgers, Rowan University and abroad. I have used the skills I learned to create strong ESL programs in public schools and to assist my students in using English at the same rate as native speakers.

Writing

I graduated from Rutgers University with a degree in English and Secondary Education. I then went to graduate school at Rowan University. I am certified to teach from K-12 and am currently teaching international students speaking and grammar structures, reading and writing.
