About Larissa

I earned my BS in Meteorology from OU with minors in Mathematics and Hydrology in 2009, my MS from OU in Meteorology in 2012, and I am currently a PhD Candidate in Meteorology at OU. I also have 3 years of experience teaching elementary and advanced Meteorology Laboratory classes at OU.

In my time teaching, I truly enjoy the joy that I see in students when they finally solve a problem or reach a goal that they've been working very hard to solve or achieve, and I truly relish the opportunity to help them along their journey towards success. I believe that the best way to lead students towards their goals is to start from the ground up -- to ensure understanding of the most basic principles that their particular problem involves. Once these pillars of knowledge are firmly established, I believe with a little bit of effort, the student's ability to reach their goal -- whether it be a solving homework problem, acing a school final, or getting a great SAT score -- will be achieved.

I look forward to leading you on your journey to success!

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.

MATLAB

All of my research (the past 5 years) involves using MATLAB to manipulate data and create figures from that data. I taught and graded labs for a class that involved using meteorological data to create various figures. I am currently a PhD Candidate in Meteorology at OU.
