Hello, my name is Alysha (Aly), and I am a bilingual (English/Spanish) individual who promotes the positives of cultural diversity, the importance of tolerance, and the multitude of opportunities that lie ahead for those who strive to achieve. Not only am I incredibly positive, but patient as well. The latter is an essential asset to have as a teacher because it is beneficial to know and understand a student's learning style.
That being said, my tutoring methods are dependent on the learner and how they process, comprehend, and retain what has been taught. Never do I move forward without activating and assessing the students' prior knowledge and their attainment of new concepts. When tutoring Spanish and English, I often utilize Total Physical Response (TPR) with simple commands to promote communication. Along with this, I will always review and reflect on previously taught material to keep it fresh in the students' minds. As for other core subjects, I have reinforced my learning by taking recent courses in both Math and Science, taught in a core-knowledge charter school, public elementary & IB Middle schools.
My experiences range from teaching 4/5 Bilingual, Spanish K-8, English Second Language (ESL) K-Adult both in Ecuador & in Colorado. Therefore, I'm K-6 Professionally licensed with a Masters in Curriculum & Instruction and a Linguistically Diverse Endorsement (ESL & TESOL). In addition, I have become Highly Qualified in Spanish. Within the past year, I have moved from CO to CT and am pursuing my MSW online through Simmons College.

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.
