**Hear what parents and adult guests are saying about virtual"Museums With Marisa" programs!**

Monica S; Parent of a 7 year old

This class was EXCELLENT! My seven year loved learning about King Tut! Ms. Marisa was engaging, knowledgeable, and funny. She did a spectacular job managing all the students on Zoom, and made sure to include the quieter kids.

 

You are an incredibly dynamic speaker, and I enjoyed your class as much as my daughter. You were also VERY quick to notice when she wanted to share something.

 

You have a true gift, and we are so grateful that you share it with kids. I would love to join your adult lectures, too! Thanks again so much- we will definitely be taking more classes!

 

Sarah M; Parent of a 7 year old

My 7 year old sat glued to her Outschool class the entire time. She was thrilled when she identified an Egyptian stuffed kitty her dad brought her from the Metropolitan Museum of Art as it related to the material!  We would definitely recommend this teacher.

Jason F; Parent of a 5 year old

This is an educational, fun and interactive class and my 5 year old absolutely loved it. He adores the teacher, Marisa, who has such a great teaching style. My son has never lost a moment's interest in one of her Outschool zoom classes.

 

We love Marisa's classes. She keeps the kids engaged and gives them so much to think about!   My son constantly asks if there are more classes with “the Egypt teacher!”

 

Tesalia D; Parent of an 8 year old son

This was our third class with Ms. Marisa. She is a phenomenal teacher and that is why we keep going back. Our son looks forward to classes with Marisa as his rewards for good behavior.

Lilac S; Parent of a 6 year old son

We love Marisa's classes. She keeps the kids engaged and gives them so much to think about!   My son constantly asks if there are more classes with “the Egypt teacher!”

Jessica M; Parent of a 9 year old

My daughter loved this class she is excited to do another one. She was really nervous at first, but quickly forgot about her nerves and focused on all the fun things she was learning.

Michelle W; Parent of a 9 year old son

My son is a huge fan of the Percy Jackson books, so we knew he'd love this class, and it did not disappoint!  This was a great mix of talking about the myths and characters, and what sounded like a super-fun Kahoot trivia quiz.  Marisa knows how to engage young people and encourage them to share their thoughts and opinions.  She tapped into one of my son's interests and he was so happy and energized after attending this class.  I highly recommend it, and hope there are more like this coming!

 

Marisa L.; Parent of a 10 year old son

My 9-year old son loved this class! As soon as the Zoom ended, he ran into the other room to tell my husband all about it. Ms. Marisa is funny, engaging, and completely well-versed in her field. Her presentation is fun, interactive, and very interesting. The students had time to answer questions, which Marisa answered beautifully. We can't wait to take another class with her! Highly recommend!

 

 

Emily C; Parent of twin 9 year old boys

My twin 9-year old boys took this course and afterwards were bursting with new information. Marisa is an amazing teacher who kept them engaged the whole time with her effervescent personality and obvious love of the topic! They learned a lot of cool information and they were proud to tell me the difference between archaeologists and paleontologists. They cannot wait to take another course in the future and are already planning out their top picks!

Adele P; Parent of a 10 year old

Brilliant class thank you. Her credentials are incredible.

Marisa is so welcoming, fun, inspiring and knowledgeable.  A gifted teacher, and her gifts easily translate through online and through Zoom.

 

Ayesha; Parent of a 13 year old son

My kids were engaged throughout and loved the class. Marisa did a great job explaining complex aspects in a way children could grasp, yet not dumbing it down. Would love to do other classes with her-Thank you!

 

Katy R; Parent of a 9 year old

This was my 9 year old daughter’s first Outschool class, and she LOVED IT! She is very shy but felt no pressure to talk and liked to use the chat. Afterwards, she couldn’t wait to tell me all about her learning.

Nicole S; Parent  of a 7 year old

This was a really fun and exciting introduction to Egypt! My daughter loved it and I even enjoyed the kid’s class.  The teacher is so excited about the subject and the students become excited too! Thanks so much!

 

And much, much  more!
