About LaRissa D.

Hola todo, My name is LaRissa, I am a former Spanish high school teacher in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia. As an undergraduate at Valdosta State University, I was my Spanish Professor's intermediate-level aide for a year. I would help the lower-level students with their work/speech to help them feel more confident by speaking with an individual their age. I believe the final courses I took before I graduated equipped me with the necessary tools to get involved with the community and make an impact on the lives of those that wish to speak, enhance or learn another language. I love the impact and influence that I have on the people with whom I work. Pupils begin seeing results as soon as two sessions. : ) I have studied college-level French for two years, while in the process of obtaining my Bachelor's degree. I am skilled in the intermediate to beginning-advanced level. With English as my first language, I am able to defend my provisions using grammar rules and regulations, proper punctuation marks and to help to develop a sophisticated vocabulary word bank. With taking a course or two in Computer Applications, I have learned to appropriately navigate and get the best out of Microsoft Word and Powerpoint software programs. If any last-minute help is needed with tutoring, interpreting, translating and circumlocution skills, I hope I can be trusted and used as your supplemental help with acquiring or perfecting your tutoring needs. Please do not hesitate to contact me to schedule a time for you and I to formally meet before our initial tutoring session. I look forward to meeting you soon! Your new tutor, Señorita LaRissa Let's get started, shall we!

LaRissa is a very encouraging and personable instructor! I liked that while you’ll learn the basics at the beginning like numbers or the alphabet, she’ll also take into consideration the person’s interests or the topics the student would want to learn first along the way. An example of this was learning musical terms, since I like to sing and play instruments. She also addresses the best way the person learns in the first lesson (whether you’re a visual, auditory, or kinesthetic learner) and tries to incorporate that into the lesson. I also like that the lessons have a structure to them (review last week’s lesson, jumping into the new lesson, and giving the person’s a heads up what next week we’ll learn). Also, that she tries to address all the different ways you would use Spanish (speaking, listening, and writing) throughout the lesson.
