About Alessio

With nearly a decade of experience as a writing tutor, I like to look past the assignment and focus on the students' needs. The basis of strong writing is strong thinking, and I bring a background in philosophy and critical theory to my engaging, conversational approach as a tutor.

I love tutoring writing because there's nothing better than opening someone's mind to a new idea or a new way of seeing things. In a typical session with me, we'll spend less time looking at the page and more time talking to each other, working to deepen your understanding not only of your assignment, but of what, precisely, you are arguing: the first step to writing a strong argument is being able to state your argument concisely out loud.

I have tutored at Bard High School Early College (NYC), Mt. Carmel High School (Chicago), and independently, specializing in academic papers, college essays, ACT writing, and AP English. A French and German speaker, I have also tutored students for whom English is a second language. I have been honored with two awards for my tutoring work at the Neighborhood Schools Program in Chicago, Other areas of knowledge include media studies, film and television, game design, and theater.
