About Alyssa

Hello. I am currently an English high school teacher. I have been a teacher for over 13 years. I taught the majority of my career at the high school level, but I have also taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade French and Language Arts. I have experience tutoring students of all ages in a variety of subjects ranging from French (basic / intermediate), English as a second language, reading, writing, grammar, and study skills. I also have some experience working with special needs students with cognitive impairments and autism. I was a tutor and assistant director of education at a tutoring center for over a year. I was rated highly effective, the highest rating a teacher can receive. I enjoy helping others learn and to be successful. In working with children, I often use reward charts or incentives to keep them working and motivated. I am available evenings any day of the week and anytime on weekends. I look forward to working with you. Hello. I am currently an English high school teacher. I have been a teacher for over 13 years.

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.
