About Larissa


Bio

Hi-

I love working with people one-on-one. I have an arts background and have been in the high school and college classroom for nearly 10 years.

I am a NYS certified in English 7-12 teacher. I left K-12 teaching and have been teaching on the college level for the last 7+ years. I recently moved back to NYC and am eager to find more students to help.

An important note: I am an educator and teacher and those ethics shape my tutoring policies. I will function in this same manner in lessons...

An important note: I am an educator and teacher and those ethics shape my tutoring policies. I will function in this same manner in lessons with you or your child. I do not write papers/do assignments for students or do their homework for them. I give one on one guiding and individualized help just like a teacher or professor would but ultimately it's still the student's answers. If you're looking for someone to do assignments, I am the wrong fit for you or your child. However, if you're looking for someone to provide the right training and skills for one to succeed on his/her own, I am that fit.

Adobe InDesign

I have worked for a publishing company using InDesign. I am also currently laying out a high school yearbook in InDesign.
Adobe Photoshop,

Adobe Photoshop

I teach Photoshop on the college level to beginners and professionals (and all those in between). I have been an Adobe Certified Expert in multiple versions of Photoshop and have kept up with every version including CC (Creative Cloud).
Drawing,

Drawing

I was a Fine Arts major in college. That meant that I had to take drawing, painting, sculpture, and photography classes. I also teach at a fine arts college; while I don't teach drawing there due to SACS accreditation rules, I still am able to practice and keep my skills sharp.
Film,

Film

I have nearly 20 years of experience within the still photographic and motion industries. I also have my MS in Media Management from The New School. I have extensive experience editing films in Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, and Adobe After Effects along with teaching novice learners to edit in iMovie and Adobe Lightroom.
Painting,

Painting

I majored in studio art in my undergraduate studies which required numerous painting classes. In addition, in my MFA Photography program, we were expected to take courses outside of our discipline as well. I took a number of painting classes. I continue to exhibit both my photography and my paintings nationally.
Photography,

Photography

I received my B.A in Studio Art (concentration in Photography) and my MFA in Photography from Pratt Institute. From there, I spent a number of years within the NYC photo industry, working in a variety of roles. I am a photographer as well as have worked as an assistant on major advertising and fashion shoots. I also have been a digital imaging specialist for major rental and sales houses working with the latest technology. I will give their names upon request. I often tutored clients one-on-one on how to use Photoshop and proprietary capture softwares. My clients ranged from museums to the top photographers in the world. It was working one on one with these clients that inspired me to become a teacher.

Macintosh,

Macintosh

My first Mac experience was in 1991 with OS 6.0. Throughout the years, I studied and adapted as the OS and hardware improved. From 2003-2005, I worked for Apple Computer in Soho in regards to sales, customer service and training. From 2005-2008, I worked for Apple resellers with software and hardware support for the photography industry. I can help you from the basics of "how do I find my pictures on this computer" to more complex troubleshooting concerns. Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon.

Social Studies,

Social Studies

While I am officially an English teacher at my school, we often align what we're doing in English to relate to the students' social studies curriculum. We worked on a 6-week-long Election project this year, and I ended up teaching political content so they could actually understand the issues at hand AND write about them. In addition, we've been doing various 20th century literature projects and connecting them to events in history.

Exceptional Tutor

Larissa is extremely knowlegeable and patient. She communicates well and really knows her stuff. She was quick and well-versed in everything I needed help with. Highly recommend!

Jasmin, 2 lessons with Larissa

Great Tutor!

Larissa was prompt and professional, and made herself available on short notice. My 10 year old son at first seemed hesitant to cooperate and be tutored, but a few minutes later, Larissa was able to capture his attention, and was able to get a lot out of him. After the tutoring session, my son felt good about his work. I have only used her once. However, we look forward to working with Larissa again.
