About Marissa

I have been tutoring since I was 8 year old, and have been working though a professional tutoring agency since I started college at UW-Milwaukee. I have tutored in math, English, and ACT prep at every level from Preschool through college. I have also tutored various science classes along the way. I feel that every student has a unique way of learning. If a student is struggling with a topic, I fully believe it is because the topic has not been presented to them in the way they can relate or learn. I do my best to tailor sessions to each individual student so they get the most out of the time.

I am currently pursuing a degree in Elementary Education, with a focus on Math and English. I took the ACT when I was a high school junior and received a 32. I also took AP Chemistry and AP Calculus BC and received a 3 in both. I have completed math classes up through Calculus 3, enjoying them all. I have had a variety of jobs working with kids. I spent 2 years working in a daycare, 2 years coaching basketball and assisting in soccer, as well as teaching kids church/Sunday School for 5 years now. I also tutor and nanny on a regular basis.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT English

I have been tutoring the ACT for a few years now and am very comfortable with the material. I did very well when I took the ACT English portion, scoring a 34. I have taken many college level English courses as well, adding to my subject knowledge.

ACT Math

I have been tutoring ACT Math for a few years now. I love math and have taken through Calculus 3 at the college level. I scored a 35 on my math section of my own ACT, so I am very comfortable with the material.

I have tutored algebra 2 for 7 years now, and have an great understanding of all of the formulas, methods, and concepts! I have taken math classes through Calculus 3 at the college level as well.

Basketball

I have a large amount of experience with basketball- coaching, reffing, and playing. I played basketball starting at age 8 through my freshman year of college. I coached 2 different girls basketball teams for 2 years, grades 3-8. I also have helped ref for a few games.

Elementary (K-6th)

I had been working with kids in Kindergarten through 6th grade for years. I have tutoring this age group in math, reading, writing, English, and science. I have also taught this age group in a daycare and Sunday School/Kids Church setting. I am currently pursuing a degree in elementary education as well, and doing my field hours in the MPS elementary schools.

I have been tutoring writing for over 10 years. I have tutored students working on formal essays, research papers, poetry, creative writing, applications, persuasive writing, and informational writing. I have worked on writing from preschool age all the way up through adult age.

Very, very helpful!

Marissa helped my daughter prepare for a math exam. After one session with Marissa, my daughter went from being very confused to having a good grasp of the material, and did very well on the test!
