About Alena

As I have a deep passion for making a difference and helping others succeed, I know just how rewarding it is to witness a student learn to develop his or her own skills; tutoring is something I truly love to do!

Throughout both my high school and college career, I have attained tutoring and teaching skills, child learning experience, and editorial knowledge. I became a writing tutor for middle schoolers, high schoolers, and eventually, college students for approximately eight years. After being hired as a Writing Assistant at Monmouth University’s Writing Services, I became a certified tutor through the College Reading and Learning Association. In addition, I worked for a non-profit Catholic school, St. Veronica’s, as a CCD teacher for third and fourth graders, while also becoming a mentor to at-risk middle schoolers through Monmouth University’s Pen Pal Project. In turn, I have not only taught across diverse age groups, but have become an avid believer in the importance of personally connecting to students.

Moreover, I have gained an abundance of experience in written and verbal communication over the years. I worked on the editorial team for both Communications High School’s and Monmouth University’s literary magazines. I also interned at Penguin Random House twice, in which I assisted various editors with both editorial and secretarial tasks. Through these experiences, I have become sufficiently organized, learned to work well with others, have successfully developed others’ writing skills, while also improving my own communications and writing talents, having been granted many awards and honors.

Overall, being a tutor has, without doubt, added a sense of purpose to my life, and helping you, or your child, would merely contribute to that feeling. I would truly love to hear from you!
