Marissa has assisted my daughter with her HS math and english, and assisted my son on his HS SAT's and college entrance essays. She is remarkable!! Punctual, reliable, personable, and most of all, knowledgeable! At times we have also used other tutors from her business, and they have also been wonderful. We will be using Marissa again very soon to assist my daughter in her SAT prep and college essays. I highly recommend her!

I am offering my services as a seasoned one-on-one SAT tutor. My qualifications: I have a bachelor's degree in Economics from the University of Maryland. For two years during college, I tutored students taking Intermediate Macro and Microeconomics. Before moving to California, I worked as an after school tutor for the Baltimore City School System. I've also been a tutor here in Santa Barbara for two years, making this my fourth year of test-prep tutoring. In my experience with major test prep companies, I have found that SAT tutors generally receive about ten hours of training and teach dogmatically from a set curriculum. This amount of training is inadequate and the curriculum taught is too rigid to allow for the realization of maximum potential in a student. A student needs an instructor that has worked through a multitude of test questions and has independently developed multiple strategies for approaching even the most difficult SAT questions with confidence, comfort, and ease. It is a source of personal pride for me to say that I have worked through the vast majority of test prep material on market and separated the quality training material from the fluffy dross that populates the bookshelves at your local bookstore. I have developed my own style of SAT training that is custom tailored to every student. In just a few hours, my students command a complete understanding of the test itself and many strategies used to improve (and later perfect) overall scores. From there I focus on building skills quickly and effectively through intense "answer and review" sessions that improve scores every single lesson. Every student has strengths and weaknesses when it comes to taking the SAT. Our goal together will be to identify weak points quickly and to fill in those gaps with directed practice. The rates I offer are quite reasonable and I teach from many convenient locations in the Santa Barbara area. If you are interested, contact me via email or phone and I will schedule a time for us to meet. Also, find me on craigslist.
