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.

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.

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.
At the present time, I am teaching Elementary Spanish which I have done in the past. But, I taught Heritage Spanish in JEFFCO where I presently teach, K-12 ESL in other districts, and lived in Ecuador and Costa Rica as well.
