Meet Carissa

Seven years of experience with SAT/ACT prep classes, as well as experience with the Redesigned SAT that is currently being used. I had taught these classes for a tutoring company for years with great success. My clients have reported making the gains that they hoped for and several have gone on to attend Michigan State University, University of Michigan, Central Michigan University, and one received a full scholarship to Oakland University.

13 years of experience working with Dyslexia, ADD, processing disorders, and other learning disabilities. I've worked with two reading programs both of which use Orton-Gillingham methods. This method is becoming the most popular method for teaching struggling readers, and is highly recommended by psychologists across metro Detroit.

Six years of experience with all levels of math instruction. I was formerly contracted with a reputable company, where I serviced clients looking for elementary math, algebra, geometry, trig, etc.
