About Alexis

My interest in teaching comes from my love of sharing knowledge and my fascination with how the mind works. I'm currently an undergraduate student at Wake Forest University class of 2018 and I am majoring in psychology with minors in statistics, writing, and linguistics. I often say I have trouble defining my favorite areas of study because I love to draw connections between different disciplines. My peers characterize me as outgoing, patient, and compassionate.

To me, it is important that students are encouraged to approach challenging material with a positive attitude and realize that they have the potential to tackle any subject despite any previous setbacks. Therefore it is my goal to allow students to feel comfortable asking questions and taking risks on new material without worrying about judgement or failure. Ultimately, I want to help students to feel confident in their academics and realize that they are capable of overcoming challenges.

I tutor math topics up to a 12th grade level and am skilled at helping students learn how to approach unfamiliar math concepts. I am also skilled in teaching students a structured writing process. I have found that the most important part of writing is knowing how to begin a writing assignment that may seem too broad or complex. I am glad to help students brainstorm for writing assignments, edit writing assignments, or learn the process of writing in an academic setting of any level.

For younger students, I tutor reading skills, grammar, and elementary math. I have a passion for working with children and I love to convey an optimistic attitude towards learning.

I do not have formal experience tutoring but I regularly help peers with understanding class concepts and assignments, especially with writing essays and breaking down math problems. My style of tutoring is casual and communicative as well as structured and aimed toward challenging students. My goal as a tutor is to help students master a topic and learn to think dynamically to see how that subject is important, even if it may not be their favorite.

Before a first session, I offer a free consultation to discuss learning goals and areas of interest. I always make sure to review material for myself before any session and I take feedback very seriously, I love to know how I can be a better aid. I am asking for $40 per hour but am willing to accept a lower rate depending on the job.

Please contact me with questions. I am very thrilled to have the opportunity to help students find success in their studies!
