About Alicia

I've been tutoring since high school in life sciences, English, and German, and I majored in brain, behavior, and cognitive science and minored in Germanic languages and literatures at the University of Michigan. I grew up assisting in the classroom as my mother is a bilingual special education teacher and I've always loved working with kids and the challenge of explaining a topic in another person's terms. I also put my studies of the brain and human cognition to good use while preparing for tests in college by helping classmates, as teaching a new subject to someone else is one of the best ways to obtain a firm grasp and complete understanding of novel material. "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough."

I've been taking German for 7 years and have a passion for Germanic languages. While in college, I also took Dutch and Swedish and lived in Germany for a semester studying German. Half of my family is fluent in German, of course that's partly because some of them are German citizens. I was also chosen by my high school German teacher to help students that were struggling in class.

I blog regularly about paleo lifestyle, and prior to that I was chosen to blog for the national chapter of one of my campus's political organizations.

Feel free to contact me with any questions!

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.

Lacrosse

I played Lacrosse for seven years attending camps and participating on travel teams since middle school. I also played on my high school's Lacrosse team, which was the best in the state. Since finishing high school, I've enjoyed instructing children who are new to the sport and helping them learn the game.
