I am a current medical student and am also getting a Master of Public Health degree from Johns Hopkins University.

Hello! My name is Alyssa and I have my Bachelor of Science from Virginia Tech with a minor in Spanish. I am a current medical student and am also getting a Master of Public Health degree from Johns Hopkins University. Throughout college, I tutored student athletes in mostly biology, chemistry, and math. It was while tutoring that I noticed the importance of learning styles. Some of the students just needed to find what learning style worked best for them. For example, if I were to translate a word problem into a picture, many of them were able to understand the material much more easily. I continue this practice, working with students of all ages and levels, to help determine the disconnect between the student and the material.
Since college, I have been tutoring high school students in various courses and spent a year abroad teaching math to middle schoolers. I have lots of flexibility in my graduate program so am able to work around your schedule. Please let me know if you have any questions, happy to chat!
Alyssa was the perfect SHSAT math tutor for my 12-year-old daughter. After the lesson, my daughter told me that Alayssa was cool and that she loved working with her! Alyssa is very knowledgeable of the SHSAT math and was able to break the problems down so that my daughter could easily understand them. Equally important was that she was able to connect with my daughter and keep her attention for 1.5 hours.Gerard, 1 lesson with Alyssa
Alyssa was beyond patient with me throughout our session. She also made sure I thoroughly understood a concept before moving on to the next. This was something I truly appreciated, because there are certain topics that take me a lot longer to grasp than others. In this case, Alyssa took her time and broke down each step for me, so that I could successfully tackle the homework problems I struggled with the most. At the end of our session, I felt completely confident about the material we covered. I definitely recommend her as a tutor!!Nicole, 1 lesson with Alyssa
Alyssa was super helpful and friendly. She made me understand chemistry math with ease. This was my 1st lesson with her and it went fantastic. I feel so much more confident in doing calculations for my college chemistry course. Thank you again Alyssa.Jennifer, 1 lesson with Alyssa
Very knowledgeable, easy to follow, and very patient.
Very impressed with Alyssa. She's very knowledgeable--understands and handles the subject like a first language and I would highly recommend her to anyone without hesitation.Eddie, 4 lessons with Alyssa
I always understand the math after her lessons. Wish she was my actual teacher. I dunno why there’s a minimum number of words required but she’s a very good teacher. Very polite and clear with explanations.Jamie, 28 lessons with Alyssa
Alyssa is an amazing tutor, super cool (as per my daughter) and makes the lesson easy to understand and learn. So happy to have found her.Ana, 8 lessons with Alyssa
Very versatile and effective tutor!
After working with Alyssa, my 7th grader who struggled with science got all A's on his year end assessment. Alyssa also helps him with ELA, math and social studies. I can highly recommend her.Yana, 12 lessons with Alyssa

First lesson went very well. She was on time and helped my daughter through tough problems quickly! Looking forward to see how her methods develop. Can update later with more experience.Crocker, 4 lessons with Alyssa
Very knowledgeable and prepared
Alyssa worked on Earth Science with my daughter. She brought her own materials and was calm, patient and really helped. We look forward to continuing with her.Amy, 4 lessons with Alyssa
My daughter initially didn't want online tutoring but was very happy with her first session with Alyssa
Great first session! we are looking forward to more sessions for my daughter. She was happy with how it went and found Alyssa to be very helpful. She was initially against the idea of online tutoring, but now thinks it is a great idea. Thank you!Jennifer, 1 lesson with Alyssa
