I am Alicia!
After graduating with a Bachelor's degree in 2007 from American University, I pursued my professional teaching career in several fields as a teacher's assistant for a private school, an online Spanish and English foreign language teacher, an art teacher for an aftercare community center and public school k-5 long-term substitute teacher. Also, I volunteered my time as a reading tutor at a center for disadvantaged youths beyond their classroom curriculum.
My teaching philosophy is patience, guidance, encouragement and respect are the ways to achieve academic success. As an educator, my goal is to ensure that every student has a learning environment where they feel optimistic, enthusiastic and supported. Also, I believe in keeping each tutoring session professional and confidential with mutual respect and collaboration between tutor and the student. I am also willing to be flexible in changing my lessons plans to meet the specific academic needs of the student.
I have reviews and testimonials from other students on personal website as well as my other teaching platforms.
