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, I aid in their comprehension and make sure they can start distinguishing and translating the material correctly.

Please contact me for any questions you may have. I am extremely flexible with time and can work with you to help you achieve the common goal. I look forward to hearing from you! Have a fantastic day!

Algebra 1. She is very patient. She allow me to find my own mistake, correct it and show me different way of doing it which made it much clearer and gave me a much better understanding of the lesson. By her explaining key concept I have a richer understanding.

Very Patient and Helpful

Larissa C really helped me understand how to take apart a passage in Spanish sentence by sentence so I can understand what is going on.

Nadia, 35 lessons with Larissa

Awesome person!

We went over how to do formulas and I actually got them right after she taught them to me. Which is saying something because I’m generally terrible at math. She made everything so simple and was so nice and patient. Really awesome! Book her if you want to succeed!

Robin , 4 lessons with Larissa

Knowledgeable and patient tutor!

I loved working with Larissa, she went above and beyond to help me understand a project that I had to complete. She was able to break everything down for me in a way that I could understand. Larissa is very energetic, patient, and down to earth. I felt very comfortable working with her, like a friend or classmate was helping me.
