Director of Education and Primary/Junior Specialist
Marissa joined Prep Academy Tutors in 2014 after completing her Bachelor’s of Education (Primary/Junior) with additional qualification in Special Education at Queen’s University.
In 2015, Marissa participated in a conference in Oregon to learn how to train others in Direct Instruction. In addition to Direct Instruction, Marissa also trains teachers the Wilson Reading System.
Marissa is passionate about making learning come alive for her students, finding new paths and creative ways to reach every learner. By determining the student’s strengths and weaknesses, effective strategies are developed and implemented to help them grow in their areas of weakness.
Both teachers and students are encouraged to ask questions and reflect on their learning and teaching processes.
Learning is a life-long process; our collective goal is to help students become confident learners who are not afraid to make mistakes in order to learn.
