About Alyssa

I have a BA in History. I have worked in two separate tutoring centers helping students with diverse subjects. I have experience in helping students with studying techniques, reading comprehension, and grasping day to day lessons. My first job was in a university writing center where I tutored students in paper planning, content, and editing. My mentors have taught me that tutoring is not about me doing the work but all about encouraging the student to reach his or her full potential. I will not give your child all the answers but will do my best to inspire him or her to find them independently. Because tutoring is only temporary, my goal is to leave your son or daughter with techniques that will carry into future tasks in elementary, middle school, high school, college, and beyond.

While my expertise lies in writing and proofreading, I am also an excellent student and have vast experience with studying and comprehension. Because I originally wanted to be a teacher, I have taken numerous education classes and have been taught strategies for diverse learners. I also have clinical experience in the school system where I observed and taught a few lessons to an entire classroom. Maturity, preparedness, and diligence are some of my strongest suits. I am very patient and willing to take the hard road for success.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.
