About Alissa

I am a native Vermonter with Cuban roots and currently working part-time as a bilingual Field Outreach Educator for the VT Migrant Education Program (The University of Vermont Extension). I work with Spanish-speaking out-of-school youth, teaching them English as a foreign language as well as life skills. Last year I earned my M.A. in Spanish and spent almost a year abroad in Madrid, Spain! I am crazy about languages and love sharing this passion with others. I am eager to tutor English and/or Spanish to students from high school to adult. I think tutoring is a great way to learn because it is customizable; we can take whatever pace you need to succeed. I truly enjoy the relationship-building aspect!

Aside from languages, I am also a multidisciplinary artist. I am a trained vocalist, portrait artist (people and pets), Latin dancer (salsa/bachata), and actress. I'm currently rehearsing a play in Spanish.

I have exceptional grammar, proofreading, and copy editing skills in English and Spanish.

I am fluent in Spanish after making it through Middlebury's challenging Master's program. I have been in love with Spanish my entire life! My maternal grandparents were from Cuba and it is my lifelong goal to research my roots and be as involved in Hispanic culture as possible!

I am available by email or phone. Email is my preference.
