I work with all levels and all skills. I also work with average skills students and people who struggle to learn through traditional methods. I work full time at a school. I have been teaching for 29 years

I like transforming unsure, hesitant-about-my-skills students into confident, successful, happy-with-my-progress students. I work exclusively with 12-18 year olds.

    Ms. Parra was an excellent teacher with a passion for the topics she teaches and an extremely positive attitude. She is patient and always willing to take time out of her day to help with any questions or doubts one may have. She always found ways to make topics more interesting and engaging. Shes truly a teacher I will always be grateful for having the opportunity to come across. And I will always be appreciative of the patience, kindness, and dedication she showed.

    Marisa has been a wonderful resource for our daughter. She is flexible and patient and works at the right pace for her. Marisa keeps in touch with me regularly and provides advice and information not just as a teacher, but also as a parent. She helps our daughter understand the concepts, and the conjugation rules and focuses on the individual needs of her students. I highly recommend Marisa, as she is a valuable asset to any family with whom she works.

    Marisa Para is a wonderful, proactive and inspirational teacher. She makes content clear and easier to understand and is flexible with kids schedules which is so important. She really loves what she does and really wants her kids to succeed and they do! My child was in a grade “rut” and she finally got him to an A!

    You will never have a boring lesson with Marisa. Even if it is just a grammar lesson, she will find a way to make it interesting. Marisa never teaches from a textbook; she uses articles, quizzes, games, etc. She has different ways to introduce new vocabulary and grammar each week. Marisa even found a chapter book to read each week, which I find very interesting, not too hard but somewhat challenging. In just few months I noticed a big difference in my comprehension and ability to say full sentences, even it is just on the beginners level :)

    I have worked with Marissa for 7 months now and she has helped me immensely. She makes learning fun and we are always laughing. What I like the most is her approach. It’s not a bunch of studying boring grammar or vocabulary. I learn by doing reading exercises and speaking with her. New things are always introduced and my Spanish has improved greatly.

    Frequently asked questions

    After the initial meeting with student (and parent, if it's a minor), I assess his/her needs and strengths and weaknesses.  We developed a plan regarding frequency, intensity and goals. 

    We meet at student’s home, at the Public library or we Skype. We adjust once we figure out the speed on which each student can work and learn efficiently. 

    College Education: Buenos Aires University (Argentina) and numerous teaching courses in the US and Spain. I have worked with different ages (12-75). I use different techniques tailored to each student. We share a "cyber-notebook" wehre we have all of our notes organized and where I can post links, graphs, homework and reminders. 

    Lessons have different prices according to location, length, level, and frequency.

    I always wanted to be a teacher. It was a natural progression. A real passion. I always say, I hope I'm a teacher in my next life. :)

    I work with all types of students ages 12-adults.

    I work with average students, kids with attention issues, and my methods are well received by students who struggle with traditional settings and methods. 

    I also have many adult students that want or need to learn. 

    Meet with him/her. See if you see yourself working with that person, if she/he knows how to teach. Check references. 

    Always trust your instinct!

    They should think about what do they struggle with. Is it grammar? is it pronunciation? is it memorizing vocabulary? 

    How do you learn? By speaking? By reading? By playing? By using it? 

    If you don't know what your learning style is, we will figure it out together.
