Experienced Primary school teacher with a Masters Degree in Education, located in London

Methodology

I believe that no matter your background, every pupil has the ability to thrive in the classroom. My goal as a tutor is to help every person reach their highest potential and become independent learners. This begins by meeting individual needs. Learning should be engaging, fun, and challenging. I use hands on material and real-life situations to pique pupils' interest and make learning more relatable. I aim to remove academic frustrations and help pupils become confident, lifelong learners.

Experience

Hello scholars! My name is Marissa and I am a primary school teacher. I've taught for five years in a dual immersion school with experience in multiple age levels. I am qualified to teach in both Spanish and English. Having initially embarked on a career with the federal government, in 2013 I made the decision to follow my passion and pursue a career in education, undertaking a Masters Degree in Teaching and Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I completed my undergraduate degree in California, where I am from originally. I am an avid reader, travel enthusiast, and die hard sports fan. I look forward to working with you!
