About Marissa

I have an MA in TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) and a BA in Elementary Education. For 20 years I have taught language and life skills to adult non-native English speakers as well as academic English to international students at the university level. I enjoy the one-on-one tutoring experience and am reliable and patient. I know enough Spanish to assist a Spanish speaker learning the English language but am not fluent. I offer positive encouragement because I believe one's confidence and ability to realize their own progress and educational gains is very important. I teach manageable chunks of material and build on the successes of previous lessons being certain there is opportunity for review and assessment. I am prompt and dependable and look forward to working with you! I have an MA in TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) and a BA in Elementary Education.
