I am a professionally certified ESL instructor with extensive experience working with both adults and children. I have an extensive knowledge of grammar and tools for language learning. Many of my students want to work on pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar; you can come to me with any concern you may have!
Together, we can also improve your conversational or writing skills. In my opinion, practicing casual conversation in a way that incorporates learned grammar and vocabulary is the best way to improve in a language! I am also a very experienced tutor for academic writing and I particularly love helping students improve this skill. I can also help you study for an exam, like the IELTS.
I am also very experienced with working with children online, and am comfortable with children ages 6 and up.
I hope to meet with you!

About Alyssa S.

Hello! My name is Alyssa and I am from the United States. I am an ESL teacher and an experienced academic writing tutor. I speak English and Spanish, and some of my hobbies include travelling, reading, drawing, and learning languages.

I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.A. in English from Georgia Southern University. My program focused in professional English writing & composition and literature analysis. I also studied political science and Spanish. Right after university I took a summer internship with my city's branch of the World Trade Center- and amazing experience which drove my desire to get out into the world and learn more about it. I then became professionally certified to teach English and moved to Costa Rica, where I began working for multiple language companies and institutes. I now work completely online giving English classes, academic tutoring, and freelance writing.

My passion for tutoring and teaching definitely started while working my university's Writing Center. Here I helped other students improve their writing by identifying opportunities for improvement in compositions and discussing in a clear and effective manner to help the student in correcting their own issues. I love helping my students develop and grow as writers, so I continue this today online!
