About Marhissa

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 three 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!

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.
