About Alice

Hello! My name is Alice and I am a current nursing student at Emory University. I received my BS from Georgetown University in 2010 in Biology and Philosophy, and have been tutoring for the past 8 years.

At first I tutored friends and friends of friends, and then I moved on to professional tutoring. I've been working professionally as a tutor for 4 years now, for two different companies where I received training on specific tutoring and teaching techniques, as well as experience with a wide variety of student ages and abilities. While I have tutored many many school subjects, and test prep for many standardized tests, my favorite topics to teach are Biology, Physiology, and SAT English and Reading. This is because I love biology, and I love grammar and reading!

My first professional tutoring position was with C2 education in their tutoring center in Millbrae, California. When I was hired I completed training on tutoring techniques, as well as on SAT-specific strategies for the verbal, writing, and reading comprehension sections. At C2, I tutored up to 3 students at once for 2-hour sessions. Students ranged from first graders to seniors in high school, and the content ranged from help with school subjects, generalized grade-appropriate writing, reading comprehension, or math practice, college entrance essay help, and test prep for the SAT, SSAT, HSPT, PSAT, ISEE, and TOEFL. I also taught a 6 week SAT prep class of 6 students. After leaving C2 I worked for Varsity Tutors, which matches tutors with individual students to work either online or in person. I have worked with several families through Varsity, mostly teaching test prep via their online platform.

In addition to my professional experience, I have some personal life experience that also informs my tutoring style. I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was 10 years old, and my experience of managing that condition throughout my schooling and as an adult has helped me to be a better tutor. Knowing what it feels like to be distracted, or to understand something in a different way from others, helps me be patient with students: explain things in multiple ways, repeat things, or use visual or kinesthetic strategies to aid learning and retention.

A brand new Atlanta resident, I am just starting to get to know this city. I love to be active and outdoors, and I love playing games of any sort! I also enjoy science fiction books and movies. I am a playful yet dedicated tutor and I look forward to helping your student reach their academic goals!

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.

Biology

I majored in Biology at Georgetown University, and then worked professionally in a neuroscience lab at University of California San Francisco after graduation. I am currently in nursing school at Emory University, so my biology skills remain up to date and in daily use!
