About Alyssa

Hello, I am a third grade teacher who is looking forward to continuing to teach students after school and during the summer. I have been a third grade teacher for four years and was a math coach for two years. In my coaching position, I challenged higher level math students in a math league. I also monitored and worked in small groups with many students that had targeted math goals.

I used to be a tutor for a student for three years who couldn't attend school. I brought exciting activities to his home and helped him excel in grades 3-6 I focused on reading and math with him daily for two hours.

I would enjoy teaching math, writing, and reading to elementary students kindergarten to fifth grade. In math, I can improve your child’s fact fluency and problem solving skills. In reading, I can work with your child on phonics and decoding skills, as well as comprehension strategies using informational texts and literature. I also would look forward to changing your child’s outlook on writing. I have experience with teaching students to enjoy writing. I will teach your child how to look forward to writing informational and literature pieces while elaborating and using proper language and vocabulary. I’m eager to provide one on one, hands on exciting activities to further your child’s education! My goal is to help your child be a confident lifelong learner! :)

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.

Common Core

Recently, I designed new curriculum units based on the Common Core in the areas of math, reading, and writing with colleagues. Also, every lesson and teaching point is based on the Common Core State Standards.

Elementary (K-6th)

I completed my student teaching in a second grade classroom in Naugatuck, CT. I was a math coach at that same school for two years afterward. I have been a third grade classroom teacher for 3 years with a wide variety of learners.

Handwriting

I have one year experience teaching "fundations" program. This program teaches students how to properly write each letter using the correct lines. Know key vocabulary for each line and where each letter needs to rest on it. This was a program that was co-taught with a first grade teacher. I also teach my third graders cursive. We study each letter and practice the correct formation of these letters.

Study Skills

I have experience in timed test taking with fact fluency and with timed computer programs. Also, this is my third year doing preparation for the Smarter Balanced Assessment.
