About Alexis

Greetings,

My name is Ms. Alexis. I am honored to introduce myself as a Certified Master Tutor. My accreditation is through College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA); with additional training received at Antelope Valley College (AVC). In 2015, I was awarded the Subject Award in Learning Assistance (tutoring). I also received a scholarship from Quartz Hill’s Women’s Club in 2014. I graduated with honors from AVC in 2014, with a Business and Liberal Arts: Social and Behavioral Science Degree. In 2012 and 2013 I made the President’s List holding a 4.0 GPA and the Dean’s List every semester.

In my leisure time I enjoy designing / creating jewelry, dancing, hiking, and star gazing. I have volunteered for various organizations such as: California State University Bakersfield’s Multi-Cultural Club - designing and make button flags for cultural events and, New Beginnings Outreach Mission Church, tutoring children. I am also an advocate/supporter of National Alliance for Mental Illness (NAMI). Last but not least, I am delighted to share that I am the proud mother of a clever, kindhearted, and energetic little girl. She is my main focus, when I am not busy assisting others. She is the reason I have worked so hard to obtain the best education possible. One of my goals in life, is to show her, that you can achieve your ambitions in life regardless of ones circumstance. In the near future, I plan on attending Clark Atlanta University to obtain a degree in Social Work.

While debating on starting this service, I first asked myself what makes a good tutor? Is it the certificates, the knowledge or is it something else? I believe it is the passion for learning and teaching that makes a good tutor/educator. Before agreeing to teach others, one must first learn; learn what it is to teach and most importantly what it means to accept that we all will need help at some point in our lives.

It takes a strong person to accept needing assistance, so congratulations on taking the first step to successful learning. My tutoring style is holistic; focusing not only on the subject matter, but also the barriers created toward learning. I tailor each session for the person receiving the tutoring, because no two people learn the same, adding to their existing knowledge. The most rewarding part of being a tutor is seeing my clients succeed. I look forward to working with you and helping you create an effective plan designed for your needs.

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.
