In addition to academic support and remediation, creating a safe learning enviroment that promotes risk-taking and improved confidence is one of my top priorities! This includes consistent positive reinforcement, and a deep understanding of the root cause behind a student's learning challenges and behaviors. As a partner in your child's learning, I will be engaged in helping to 'demystify' the process for parents and provide strategies that you can implement in the home to reinforce growth and promote a positive learning environment.

Of course, I enjoy watching students' newfound confidence as they build their skills, but perhaps more than that I enjoy when parents feel secure that they've found someone who truly 'sees' and understands their child in a holistic way!

I have known Alyssa for years and have worked closely with her in the past. She is extremely dedicated to finding personalized solutions for families and is really invested in learning about a student as an individual. She will hone in on what your student may be having difficulty with and work with you to figure out the best plan for your student. Alyssa is equipped with an amazing background in education and reading support. She can definitely help with any of your child’s needs!

Frequently asked questions

First, I have a complimentary intake call with the parent so I can learn more about their child, their needs and discuss learning goals. Next, my first meeting with the student will be an initial skills assessment and to start building rapport! Then, I consult with the parent to discuss professional recommendations for session frequency and communicate the individualized instructional focus. 

I hold a Master's degree from Hunter College School of Education, as well as initial teaching certification in New York State for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) grades K-12. Moreover, I have over 5 years of experience in implementing intensive reading intervention programs for students in a one-on-one setting.

I've worked extensively with ELL students, as well as students with diagnosed learning differences such as dyslexia, ADHD, ASD, Asperger's, and CAPD. I've worked with students aged 4 through adult.
