About Alisha

Hello! Nice to meet you! My name is Alisha E. Teaching is my passion! When I see the looks on my students faces when they achieve academic success it makes me so proud! I am very much a people person which helps me reach all the students I teach, whether adult or child.

I am an Arizona Certified teacher with a valid fingerprint clearance card. I grew up and went to high school in the Philadelphia area and then attended the University of Arizona where I earned a degree in Political Science. I earned my Master's degree in Education Leadership and Administration at Northern Arizona University. After spending 11 years teaching in Paradise Valley Unified School District, it was time for a change so now I am now a full time tutor.

My experience as a teacher was not solely in the classroom. I have spent 10 years tutoring home bound students for the school district in a wide range of subjects, but focused mainly on math. (I tutor up through Algebra 3-4 and Geometry. I can tutor most subjects through the high school level aside from foreign languages and sciences.) In addition as a teacher, I was a leader on my campus as part of our leadership team and Student Council Adviser.

My philosophy as a tutor is to work with the student one on one and to connect with him or her. As a middle school teacher, by doing this, I was the fun, popular teacher on campus. My performance evaluations say that, and I have thousands of former students who would say that as well, but most importantly I get results!

I would love to help you out! Contact me now so I can help YOU achieve SUCCESS!

Sincerely,


Alisha E., M.Ed.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

I have taught Algebra 1 in the classroom and have tutored the subject for over 10 years.

Excellent Tutor, goes above and beyond!

Excellent Tutor, goes above and beyond her lessons, and she cares! Recently, she had a tutoring session with my son and recognized that he needs additional practice in certain areas. So, instead of just simply suggesting that, she emailed the problems after class to make sure my son goes over them the same day in order to hold down the material. That goes along way to success!
