Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” ~ Nelson Mandela, leader and advocate.


Greetings Parents!

My name is Ms. Marina (Marina Barbrosa). I am a learning and behavior expert, as well as a credentialed educator who has devoted my life to helping elementary school-aged children learn in a fun, effective, and natural way!

Through education and experience; a masters degree in educational psychology (the science of learning) and almost 20 years experience working with children, I have found that one to one instruction, direct assistance in your student’s area of need, as well as learning through play or fun activities, is the most effective way for a child to learn.


Ms. Marina’s Education and QualificationsMy education includes; an advanced degree from Chapman University (M. Ed-Psy), a teaching credential, and a specialty in behavior analysis. Awards and Honors include; Parenting 2.0 Global Presence Ambassador (Parenting advocacy group), American Foundation for Suicide Prevention; education and programs director, local area chapter, 2014-present, and Chapman University department of Psychology and department of Educational Psychology Honors.

As an alumni of Chapman University’s educational psychology program, I have studied the most recent and scientifically-based ways to educate and motivate children including:

  • Learning theory and teaching practices.
  • Child and adolescent development and psychology
  • School based psycho-educational assessments (IQ and achievement testing).
  • Educational systems (schools and institutions) for general education and special needs students
