About Alyssa


Bio

Hello! My name is Alyssa. I hold a Masters in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (MTESOL) and a BA in Linguistics. I am a certified teacher and currently teach middle school English Language Arts.

For Accent Reduction, I initially assess each student with a language background survey and an evidence-based listening and speaking test. Based on those assessments, I design a curriculum tailored to each student's specific needs based on current phonological and TESOL research.

Hello! My name is Alyssa. I hold a Masters in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (MTESOL) and a BA in Linguistics. I am a certified teacher and currently teach middle school English Language Arts.

For Accent Reduction, I initially assess each student with a language background survey and an evidence-based listening and speaking test. Based on those assessments, I design a curriculum tailored to each student's specific needs based on current phonological and TESOL research.

My academic tutoring sessions are tailored to each student. It is important for me to know individual needs, and design a lesson plan from there. Sometimes, it involves working on current assignments, while other times I provide new practice material. For test prep, I assess ability with a practice test, and then formulate a lesson plan from there.

I have a background in linguistics with a deep knowledge of the English language including grammar, pronunciation, literature, and vocabulary. I am a middle school English teacher, and have recently taught adult ESL at a university center and test prep as well. I also have worked in the Accent Reduction space for 3 years.

In total I have over 4000 hours of experience in teaching and tutoring, and the research-based knowledge to diagnose and correct errors.

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

Kayode, 17 lessons with Alyssa

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

Violeta, 3 lessons with Alyssa

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.
