About Alisha


Bio

Hi there, I’m Alisha – an enthusiastic, aspiring Computer Scientist on the launchpad of her career with a passion for all things tech, puppies, and chocolate. I also really enjoy sports and have represented my school as part of sports teams -primarily basketball for 5 years, but also football and volleyball.

I am excited by how technology and computer science has redefined the human lifestyle in every aspect. Nevertheless, I believe that the device shouldn’t just dictate what I can do...

Hi there, I’m Alisha – an enthusiastic, aspiring Computer Scientist on the launchpad of her career with a passion for all things tech, puppies, and chocolate. I also really enjoy sports and have represented my school as part of sports teams -primarily basketball for 5 years, but also football and volleyball.

I am excited by how technology and computer science has redefined the human lifestyle in every aspect. Nevertheless, I believe that the device shouldn’t just dictate what I can do with it, rather I should be able to control the device by being able to design and program it.

In my final 2 years in high school I took part in a work experience placement where I volunteered as an assistant for teaching.

I have also been involved in promoting The Hour of Code and Computer Science Education Week 2013 and 2014/15 at school alongside, researching and creating an eye-catching computer science display board, and organizing an assembly after a week of fun computer science related activities for years 7-13.

I achieved an A* for the Mathematics and an A for Additional Mathematics for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education. I have a strong mathematics understanding and able to explain methods in an easy-to-remember way.

I have graduated from a prestigious British/Dutch International school and achieved an A in the University of Cambridge Advanced Level Examinations for Computer Science. I received the Highest Mark in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia for the University of Cambridge Advanced Subsidiary Level Examination for Computing. For the International General Certificate of Secondary Education, I achieved an A* in ICT, and completed the course earlier than the rest of my peers.

I am able to program in Python and I am currently learning to program in Java. My ICT course has made me proficient in using the Microsoft Office suite and I am also studying Computer Science at university level. Most importantly I am truly passionate about this subject and I am able to explain theories and methods in a simple way with practical examples.

I am really easy to talk to or connect with so do please feel free to contact me on this website. I live close to the City of Fairfax Regional Library so I would happily arrange meetings with you there if needed. Even if you need any college advice, I would be glad to help. All the best with your studying!

Computer Science

I have achieved an A in the Cambridge International Advanced Level Examinations for Computer Science. I also received the honor of achieving the highest mark in my city for the Advanced Subsidiary Examination in Computing. I have a thorough understanding of theory fundamentals, programming paradigms and practical problem solving skills. I am also currently studying computer science at college, while helping my own brother out with AP Computer Science.

Python

I achieved an A for the Cambridge International Advanced Level Examinations for Computer Science. As part of the course, I gained problem solving and programming skills while using Python as my programming language. Hence, I am an experienced Python programmer and my academic achievement backs that. I even received a Cambridge Award for the Highest Mark in my city for Computing at the Cambridge International Advanced Subsidiary Level Examinations.

Kudos to Alisha

Great tutor for discrete math. Highly knowledgeable and very easy to understand. I appreciate how Alisha took me through my problems step by step and made sure I understood it.

Enid, 1 lesson with Alisha

Truly excellent tutor

Alisha has been teaching my HS Sophomore Python for the past five months. They have now progressed to Java to prepare him for an AP Comp Sci exam. We anticipate in continuing to work with her for my son to develop a program on his own. My son is very comfortable working with Alisha and have gained a lot of knowledge. I highly recommend her!

ALEXANDER, 31 lessons with Alisha

AP Computer Science

Alisha is always super helpful and takes the time to make sure you understand. She is very accessible and is able to break down complicated concepts so they are easily understood.

Sally, 23 lessons with Alisha

Good first lesson

Great first lesson with focus on problem solving using the Python programming language. I was able to understand how to use Python to perform basic algorithms, in addition to recursion in functions that call themselves.

Tom, 9 lessons with Alisha

Knowledgeable and helpful tutor

Alisha has been helping my son with Computer Science. He has a much better understanding of Computer Science and is bringing his grade up in the class. We are happy with the progress he is making with her assistance.

Elisa, 6 lessons with Alisha

Knowledgeable and patient

It was the first lesson today and I can already tell that she is knowledgeable and well prepared for the lesson and what is also important if not even more she knows how to transfer that knowledge to the student. Patient, kind and fun.

Patient Teacher

We had difficulty connecting to the system, and Alisha was very patient. In the end, we completed the tutoring on Skype.
