I love to tutor math because I realize that it is somewhat scary for American students. I grew up in the Caribbean and developed a love for numbers, so much so that I did Math as my minor. I obtained my Bachelors in Liberal Arts with a Biology concentration from Saint Vincent College. I firmly believe that even though math is frustrating at times, it's a great feeling of success when problem are solved. My aim in tutoring to assist my students in building confidence in their math skills and confidence in problem solving, as well as breaking the constant need for a calculator.

Wow.....I can only sing praises about Nerissa. I personally observed her preparation, her willingness and passion to teach as long as she can and as long as the students want to learn. I would personally have her teach anyone that I know because her no quit attitude and thirst to share knowledge makes her unique and an asset to anyone who wants to learn. A top notch educator for sure....2 years ago
Nerissa is one the most gifted tutors i have had the pleasure to work with. She is very motivational and pays particular attention to details particularly when it comes to her students. I've excelled tremendously because of her tutoring and without doubt will continue to grow due to the fundamentals that I've learned from Nerissa. I give a five out of five in all areas.2 years ago
