About Alyssa

My name is Alyssa and I am a graduate student at Rutgers-Newark, a Returned Peace Corps volunteer, and an AmeriCorps alum. I have worked with students in various capacities, including inner city mentoring in Newark NJ and a literacy and life skills director in the Peace Corps.

My literacy work in the Peace Corps was the most rewarding job of all; I was working with students who could not even write their own name, and by the end of my program, they were writing short stories. My training comes primarily from the Peace Corps, where I had to essentially teach myself with the help of Peace Corps Guyana resources, but I think that says a lot about my abilities. I was able to learn a new skill and teach it successfully. I also worked with a group of elementary aged students and taught private after school lesson on various subjects: elementary math, phonics, grammar and elementary science.

While I am not the typical teacher-type, I am a great educator. I have worked in a wide range of settings and have been able to master them all!

I look forward to working with you and your family!

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.

Study Skills

As a current graduate student I've perfected my own study skills and as a literacy and life skills teacher in the Peace Corps I've been able to relay those study skills to my students. I'm confident in my ability to teach these skills. I directed and delivered a literacy program to the lowest performing elementary students in Paterson and was able to increase my students reading levels.
