Thanks in advance for choosing me as your tutor! My mission is to help students fast-track their boldest academic goals.

By focusing on the content, not just test-taking skills, I help clients translate valuable skills into confidently pursuing their academic and career goals. Also, I invest back into clients who bring in referrals.

About me:
I have been teaching and tutoring for over a decade, and currently, I am a researcher and adjunct professor in the Education Department at the University of the District of Columbia. I wholeheartedly believe that some of the richest learning experiences take place beyond the classroom, outside of comfort zones. During my matriculation at Spelman College, I spent four summers at the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, researching water quality analysis techniques. I spent one summer conducting electrochemistry research abroad at the Georgia Tech campus in Lorraine, France. The following summer, I was a Wolverine in Buckeye Country, working on upgrades to the water treatment systems in Columbus, Ohio. The opportunities I've had to work with experienced professionals were a very important part of deciding my career path.

After three years at Spelman College, I attended the University of Michigan and graduated from the Atlanta University Center Dual Degree Engineering Program with degrees in chemistry and engineering. After graduation, I joined the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and was responsible for environmental restoration and construction projects. As a volunteer ACT prep instructor, I began to recognize the lack of college prep and exposure to STEM in traditional school settings. To help me pursue my passion for teaching, I was awarded a three-year teaching fellowship and a Master's degree in education from the University of Michigan. Since completing my fellowship, I have served in various leadership roles advocating for equitable access to STEM education.

Wonderful confidence builder!

Alicia helped my daughter with review and strategies for the SSAT. Kind, warm, patient, encouraging and knowledgeable! My daughter felt comfortable and feels much more confident after working with Alicia.

Patient and Insightful Tutor with Wide and in-depth Range of Academic Skills

During the summer, we asked Alicia to help seventh-grade daughter G pass a chemistry test which would determine whether she would pass onto 8th Grade or not. G did pass and her success was such that we are now using Alicia on a weekly basis on whatever subject seems weak at the time. Alicia discovered that part of the problem is in basic study skills and has worked to improve learning skills and reviews. Thanks to such analysis and work, G will enter high school with not only a sound knowledge of key subjects, but also a foundational knowledge about how to study effectively.
