About Marisa

I have been teaching for the past 19 years and have been teaching in the same district for 18 of those years. Currently, I am employed as an 8th grade English teacher. However, I have experience teaching both 6th and 7th grade. Additionally, I have tutored High School English students for both SAT prep as well as supplemental instruction for academic classes. I have also worked with elementary school aged children teaching Reading Recovery--a program created to assist emerging readers with basic reading and comprehension strategies. Furthermore, I am adept at teaching writing skills on all academic levels and enjoy teaching writing strategies to students that are engaging and can meet specific needs.

I enjoy tutoring as I find working one on one with students best accommodates individualized instruction and is an effective way of assessing learning goals. Moreover, I find that tutoring also benefits me professionally as it reinforces my abilities as a teacher and allows me to develop teaching styles that can accommodate a variety of learners. I understand the importance of communicating with families so that students can have continued success beyond the interventions and strategies implemented during tutoring sessions.

I have a Master's degree in Reading and English Education. I am also skilled at teaching literature and analysis as well as public speaking. I am a writer myself so I am constantly improving my own writing skills and feel that my own achievements as a writer aid me in the teaching of others.

I am available during the week after school hours and have a more open schedule during the summer. I am also happy to assist with summer reading requirements for elementary students through high school.

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.

Public Speaking

I have a unique educational experience in that I have a theatre degree in addition to an English degree; this is beneficial in assisting students with public speaking as I am skilled at teaching vocal technique in conjunction with appropriate physicality. As an English teacher, I focus on public speaking once a marking period with all of my students. I understand that some students are hesitant to speak in front of others and am good at helping students overcome their fears of public speaking and gain confidence in their abilities.

Reading

I have taught English for the past 18 years and have taught a wide spectrum of ages and abilities. I am an enthusiastic reader myself and am good at engaging students in reading as well as assessing and identifying individual needs.
