This is how 2 referees rated Alyssa:
Hi! I'm Alyssa and I am a certified Ontario teacher. I graduated from the Master of Teaching program at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto in June 2018. I graduated from the University of Toronto in 2016 with a specialist in Psychology and a minor in English. I have experience working with both elementary and high school students, however I am currently certifified to teach grades 7-12.
I have tutored several students in both elementary and high school. While I have tutored in other subjects such as math, most of my tutoring experience has been for English. Over the past three school years I have taught English at the high school level in four positions, Social Science in one position, and also have experience preparing students for the Grade 10 literacy test (OSSLT).
I have worked with students who display a wide range of capabilities and so I tailor my teaching style to best meet their needs. I always keep an ongoing conversation with parents and students about areas of strength and weakness so I can decide how to approach a certain task or improve a skill in a way that works for the student. I realize that essays and other writing assignments, as well as reading, can be intimidating for some students, and so I tend to break down information/tasks into more manageable pieces. Lastly, I always encourage students to speak with their teachers regarding areas of improvement and feedback, so that I am better able to assist them. Tutoring is very rewarding and I am fortunate to have had very positive experiences thus far and I am looking forward to many more.
