Hello! My name is Marissa and I am currently a Master's student at GW studying Security Policy (Online Fall). Since I was 15, I have cared for and tutored kids of all ages. Although I primarily focus on subjects such as English, history, and reading/writing, I have coursework in biology and life science as well as in math and logic. I currently have a 3. 8 GPA and graduated magna cum laude from my undergraduate school (FIU) in 2019, where I was also a tutor for student-athletes. I enjoy being active and as such, have been a competitive swimmer since I was 10 years old. Although I have quite a few hobbies, such as running, reading, hiking, and traveling; these hobbies all incorporate one main aspect: learning. Life is a learning experience and I think that being able to show learning as a fun and enjoyable experience is key in developing life-long valuable skills and passion for a subject matter.
