Hello! My name is Alyssa. My BA is in Linguistics with a minor in International Economics, summa cum laude. In my initial tutoring sessions, I like to see what assignments my students are currently working on and observe their approach to learning. From there, I formulate a plan with the students including identifying areas for improvement, and setting goals. For test prep, I assess ability with a practice test, and then formulate a lesson from there. For accent reduction, I assess pronunciation, teach Standard American English using the International Phonetic Alphabet, and provide outside homework if the student wants it.

I'm a linguist with a deep knowledge of the English language including grammar, pronunciation, literature, and vocabulary. Recently, I taught at an English Immersion summercamp for 6-15 year olds, focusing on natural conversation. Before that, I worked in the Learning Assistance Center at CSULB as an ESL Specialist. There I worked with graduate and undergraduate students on writing, reading, speaking, test prep, and accent reduction. In total I have over 800 hours of experience in teaching and tutoring, and the knowledge to diagnose and correct errors. I've worked as a tutor in English as a second language (ESL), writing, grammar, middle school math, algebra 1 & 2, economics, and accent reduction.

Please contact me if you want a friendly, competent tutor to help you learn!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Alyssa is a friendly accent-reduction instructor and she will work with you on areas that you need to improve. I enjoy working with Alyssa, she is helping me a lot. She is very organized and has in-depth knowledge. She is very easy to work with and I highly recommend her.

Alyssa is great!

Alyssa is very knowledgeable. She was able to quickly assess my flaws and shared different resources to improve them. It took me months to finally go through tutoring. I am glad I did it. I already feel better about my communication skills. -Violeta

Patient and Reliable Tutor

Alyssa teaching methods are adaptable. She incorporated what my son’s previous tutor completed and improved the lesson style by assessing what he needed instead of starting from the beginning. My son has really warmed up to her teaching skills. I recommend to everyone looking for a tutor that is flexible and willing to work with your time.

Fernando, 3 lessons with Alyssa

Very professional and patient

I had Alyssa to help me to lessen my accent, she’s very patient with my repetitive errors, and teaches in a professional manner. I feel comfortable to communicate with her and will continue with her lessons.
