About Alyx


Bio

Hi, my name is Alyx. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a minor in Studio Art from Marymount Manhattan College, in New York City. In addition to psychology, I have a background in math, science, history, English, performing and visual arts, and criminal justice. When I am not training defendants to become competent to stand trial, I can be found tutoring, dancing or painting. My passions include a multitude of academic subjects while my heart lies on the stage.

Hi, my name is Alyx. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a minor in Studio Art from Marymount Manhattan College, in New York City. In addition to psychology, I have a background in math, science, history, English, performing and visual arts, and criminal justice. When I am not training defendants to become competent to stand trial, I can be found tutoring, dancing or painting. My passions include a multitude of academic subjects while my heart lies on the stage.

I am able to help students in many academic subject areas, and have experience tutoring friends and serving as a teaching assistant throughout high school, college, and my job after college. Recently I have been training defendants who are mentally incompetent to stand trial, and these clients typically have a combination of learning disabilities and psychological disorders. I have taught beginning through advanced levels of ballet, jazz, and other dance styles for many years. I can also help in many subjects at the high school level, including biology, English, and math.

My goal is to help people to become able to use real world examples to understand troubling concepts. Fundamentals are important, and I like to focus on building a foundation to ensure a more comprehensive knowledge of the material. I like students to understand "why" and "how" rather than simply memorizing "what" things are. Students with an interest in the performing and visual arts will gain the skills and strengths needed to further their talents through exercises in front of a mirror and various games and rehearsals. Painting and drawing students will improve their strengths and styles with practice and constructive critiques. Students who are able to critique masterworks can see their work in a new light and use those critiques in their own work. For academic subjects, my tutoring methods are adaptable to individual needs and can include exercises involving flashcards and multiple games surrounding the material. Studying can be fun and the more positive moo

Drawing

I have been drawing and painting for many years, and fine tuned my artistic abilities in college in New York City. There, I learned many techniques and methods for teaching people how to draw in ways that make even simple objects seem interesting and exciting through the use of line and negative space. Being exposed to various teaching methods has helped me grow as an artist myself, but also helped me grow as a tutor and mentor for other aspiring artists. Regardless of the level and age a student is, my methods involve exposing students to the classical works through postmodern works and create a variety of pieces that utilize a variety of skills and techniques of professionals to help them find their own personal style.
Painting

Painting

Art has been a significant part of my life and painting opened up a whole new world for me. I hope to help others see painting in a new light through learning about various techniques, styles, and manipulations of mediums. I have experience with watercolor, acrylics, and oils, and have been mentored by working artists in NYC. Constructing interesting pieces with paint involves very similar fundamentals as drawing, which may help a blossoming artist improve their appreciation and artistic abilities.

Algebra 2

I have been tutoring math up through pre-calculus for two years now. I have a passion for helping others understand math better, especially when students feel they are really struggling. The "a-ha" moments are rewarding for everyone and reflect the understanding that most topics in math build on each other. I model my tutoring methods in order to show that, and adapt to students' learning styles to make for a highly effective learning experience.

Ballet

Ballet

I have been classically trained in ballet for over fifteen years, and am familiar with many methods of technique (including Vaganova, Balanchine, and Bournonville). I have performed in many ballet productions en pointe, and have been a featured dancer in many musical theatre productions as well. For over five years, I have taught ballet classes for ages ranging from four years old to adults. I believe that foundations of technique are fundamental to growth as a dancer, and am flexible to adapt and cater to the needs and aspirations of each individual dance student.
