About Alisa

Hello!

Learning is a unique process for every student. We all possess different strengths and challenges in our ability to learn. From my experience as a teacher and librarian, I believe that students can succeed with individualized one on one assistance.

I have worked in education for 20 years as a tutor, teacher, and librarian. I am very fortunate to have worked in middle schools, public libraries and universities all over the country.

I really enjoy working with K-12 students. My strengths lie in helping students with reading, writing, spelling, and vocabulary. I am open to tutoring other subjects, especially in social studies/social sciences. Please ask me and I will give you an honest assessment of my ability to help.

One of the best ways I can assist in the learning process is tutoring through writing assignments. It can be daunting and anxiety inducing to begin. As a result, procrastination can lead to a poor grade.

Whether the student is in high school or graduate school, there are common stumbling blocks that students encounter. I can help guide you through each step in the process with clear actions with firm deadlines.

Some examples of services I can provide:
-Narrowing topics
-Coming up with a strategy for finding resources/research
-Structuring the essay/paper
-Proof reading

I am available to help with any or all aspects of writing. I am not judgmental about spelling, rough drafts or due dates.

In addition, many members of my family have dyslexia and other learning disabilities (dyscalculia, ADHD). I have practical experience working with students with dyslexia, including ESL dyslexic students. I have been chosen to present at local and national conferences on dyslexia and educational technology. I am available for consultations in applying these technologies better facilitate learning.

Please feel free to contact me for a free consultation or to ask any questions!
