Bio

Hello everyone,
I graduated from Barnard College, Columbia University in 2017. I was a Psychology major because I love helping others, understanding them and helping them understand the world around them. In college, I helped tutor my peers in Psychology, Math and Science classes. I also was a Teaching Assistant for my Statistics course for 3 years.

Hello everyone,
I graduated from Barnard College, Columbia University in 2017. I was a Psychology major because I love helping others, understanding them and helping them understand the world around them. In college, I helped tutor my peers in Psychology, Math and Science classes. I also was a Teaching Assistant for my Statistics course for 3 years. In Maria Regina High School, I was a member of the National and Science Honor Societies. I volunteered tutoring my peers for Math and Science courses, such as Biology and Algebra, as well as in my Spanish Honors class. I was also given the Multicultural Award for Outstanding Leadership and Academic Excellence. I've always had a passion for learning and helping others learn. I love helping people understanding and comprehend what is being taught. Everyone is intelligent in their own way, and sometimes they just need someone to help them believe in themselves and show them a different way of learning, so that they can make sense of it. We all have different learning styles and a true teacher, sees her students needs and helps work towards helping them achieve their goals and achieve success.
Currently, I am tutoring a few students in first and second grades, in Math, Science, and homework help, as well as teaching them English. Other students are in fifth grade and I am helping them with their homework, as well as test-taking and Reading Comprehension. Therefore, I offer a wide variety of subjects and services, depending on what I see the student needs.

I love to give students sessions that allow the students to get the most of their time. I offer them help and create my lessons based on what I see they need the most. If they are struggling in another area, I also help them because I truly want to aid in their understanding of the material. Being Billingual also gives me the opportunity to help the student navigate between the English and Spanish worlds. For example, sometimes they just don't understand what is being asked, but know how to complete the work. So,

Knowledgeable, Fun and Patient Tutor

Larissa is a perfect fit for my daughter. She knows her math and is able to simplify so she can understand. She was struggling with a few concepts and was able to build her confidence level back up. Highly recommend her services!

Larissa assists my son with college English and she has just been fantastic. She is dependable and makes a boring subject interesting according to my son. His grade has improved and he likes college again!

Nice and very helpful

My son had his first lesson with Larissa today and feels much more prepared for his Spanish quiz as a result. He found her to be smart, clear, thorough, pleasant to work with, and very helpful. He looks forward to working with her again.

Grace, 4 lessons with Larissa

So helpful! My daughter loves having Larissa in her corner!

Larissa is working with my 11-year-old on pre-algebra and test taking strategies - staying calm and focused during a year when the pressure to apply to high school is starting to increase. Larissa is smart, caring, and very cool, and I can see my daughter's confidence visibly rise after each session. Yay!
