About Alyssa

Hi there! I would love to tutor your child. I have two years of teaching experience, working with 3-5th grade students on Chicago's south side. I also have my Masters of Science in Education from Northwestern, so I love applying new techniques and approaches to learning in my tutoring sessions. I am a performer and writer, so I will always find ways to make these learning sessions enjoyable and engaging! I speak Spanish as well, so feel free to contact me if you are an English Language Learner and I will be able to help out!

I was the Science Specialist for my school on the south side, specializing in 3-5th grade Science. My favorite subject within my responsibilities was Earth science. We did hands-on, experimental learning, ensuring that all students were engaged in the activity and saw science in a real-world context.

Along with my English training in undergraduate and graduate school, I have worked on countless personal projects. I am an avid reader; both classics and modern stories. I worked with high school students on proofreading and public speaking for four years, and taught 5th grade for two years, so I am able to adapt to different learning ages.

Theatre is my passion. I believe it was the most important thing I learned in my younger, formative days, and I would love nothing more than to help students follow that passion. I have worked with Chicago Shakespeare Theater and the Lyric Opera of Chicago, as well as improvOlympic Theater, the Annoyance Theater and Under the Gun theater. Let me know if this would be a good match!

Feel free to contact me if you would like lessons! I'd love to teach you!
