About Alyssa

I truly have a passion for teaching students. I believe that students can succeed the most when they are given one-on-one instruction based on their individual needs. I am very in tune to my first grade student's needs in the classroom and work very hard to ensure that they are learning to the best of their abilities every day.

Because your student works so hard during the school year, it is very important to keep up the rigor of learning over the summer. When tutoring I would be sure to provide instruction based on your child's individual needs. I would provide all lessons and materials necessary in order for your child to succeed. I am experienced in teaching all subjects for Elementary students.

I have a passion for teaching students how to read, and how to read to learn! I have attended many professional development sessions on Reading instruction. Additionally, I have taken 24 credit hours of graduate coursework in Reading instruction.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. I have taught first grade for two and a half years. I also have experience in teaching second, third, fourth, and fifth grade students through avenues such as tutoring, student teaching, and college coursework requirements.

I believe that teaching phonics and sight words unlocks the "code" to learning how to read. I have completed 24 graduate coursework hours in Reading instruction.

I believe that I can help your child succeed! I look forward to hearing from you and scheduling a time to meet you and your child.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught first grade for two and a half years. I also have experience in working with students in second through fifth grade through student teaching and college coursework. I have specifically tutored first and second grade students in Reading and Math through the elementary school I work with. I also have tutored a fifth grade student in Math.

Phonics

I currently teach first grade. Intensive phonics instruction is a huge part of teaching first graders to learn to read. I use a curriculum called Reading Street with my current first graders. Each day of the week includes set Phonics activities in a specific order that helps students learn new sounds and word patterns. Teaching high frequency words is also an integral part of teaching students to read. Once students master words that can be known by sight, they can unlock many keys to reading.
