About Alisa

Hello, I love teaching, tutoring, and leading young people (kindergarten through college). The very first time I tutored, I was in high school and I went to the local elementary school to tutor reading. I was hooked! Since then, I have worked as a tutor for all ages, and most subjects. I have also worked for over ten years with kids and teens who have special needs. I have a passion for tutoring, as I have utilized tutoring when I was younger, and it helped me tremendously. I now have a Bachelor's degree in Collaborative Health and Human Services and I graduated with honors. I welcome the opportunity to be a part of helping others to achieve their goals. Thank you.

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.

Bible Studies

I worked for 3 years coordinating a church nursery, including supervising nursery employees and designing and implementing Christian education curriculum for preschoolers and kindergarteners. Following that, I worked for 9 years as a church youth group leader for middle school and high school youth. In that position I created, organized, and implemented bible study and Christian education curriculum for the church youth group, as well as supervised and trained adult volunteers to work with the youth.

Sign Language

I am fluent in American Sign Language (ASL) and Signed Exact English (SEE). I learned both of these while growing up, because I had some very close friends who were Deaf. Since then, I have taught sign language at a charter school and interpreted at various local events. I have a passion for ASL, and would welcome the opportunity to tutor sign language to anyone who desires to learn the language and to learn about Deaf culture!

She comes prepared and ready to start whatever lessons my son needs. Alisa has a keen sense of evaluating exactly what type of study skills would benefit your child. This has helped to get my son to utilize resources to benefit his studies that he has refused to use in the past. I highly ...
