About Alyssa

For the last few years I have been successfully tutoring peers and students. I acquired my Associate's Degree (in Liberal Arts, which focused on English Literature classes!) in December 2015 and I am currently enrolled at school and working on acquiring my Bachelor's Degree.

While I may not have the most experience, I have time to help students work through any issues they are having and I pride myself on how patient I have shown myself to be while assisting people in the past.

I like to think I've been able to help everyone that I've worked with over the past few years that I have been tutoring, but I'm able to admit that sometimes personalities don't quite mesh or teaching styles don't work well with certain people. That being said, I do try to adapt my lessons and teachings as much as possible with the time allowed before a tutoring session is over to try and help as much as possible.

Currently attending King's College in Wilkes-Barre PA where I spend a lot of time reading and missing my cats back home.

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.

Spelling

To be an English major, I've had to read and I've had to write quite a bit. Throughout the years I've come in contact with quite a few words that are just monsters to spell, and I've gotten very good at finding words that look as though they're spelled incorrectly.

Writing

As an English major, I'm a writer. I write fiction and nonfiction, I write essays, and I write anything you can think of. As someone who's tutored before, I've become very proficient at helping others learn how to structure their work to make it easier to go about writing.
