Another school year is here! Don't allow your child to fall behind or get anxious about his/her work!

Get a seasoned tutor in English/Language Arts (up to middle school) and math (up to Algebra 1 and basic geometry).

Your child CAN do the work. He/she just needs to be EMPOWERED to do it! I believe that ALL children can learn if you give them the tools to believe in themselves. Teach him/her the steps, work through some examples and then GO! I allow my clients to make mistakes and use his/her own correct work to get it right. Your child will become EMPOWERED when he/she gets a lot of the answers by him/herself! That is the point of learning!

My overall philosophy is PRACTICE makes BETTER, not PERFECT! But the more you do it, the BETTER and EASIER it becomes! Hard work will get them to BELIEVE and ACHIEVE!

With tutoring, both online and in-person (as necessary), I can help your child grow academically! Keep your child on track and on target!

Qualifications:

- MSW with a focus on Children, Youth and Families. I am a firm believer in empowerment. My client will feel accomplished when he/she gets the answers on his/her own. He/she will want to share that grade!

- Over 15 years of working in the youth development field.

- Worked with clients for up to five years so references can be requested.

Subjects:

I have worked with elementary school students in several different ways. From 2007 - 2008, I worked at P.S. 149 in East New York, Brooklyn, as a City Year New York corps member. In that role, I tutored 2nd grade special education students in phonics. I also provided homework help in our after-school program. To get the students interested in reading, I created a Jeopardy game about books for all grades. With a small group of 5th graders, I created a CD yearbook. With Gateway Middle (2008 - 2010), I worked in the 6th grade classroom. I helped the students with their homework in all subjects. With Champion Learning Center, I tutored a 2nd grader in Math and English. Currently, I am tutoring a 5th grader and a 6th grader in Math privately.

## Empowering Tutor

Today was my son’s first lesson with Alicia and I could not have been more pleased... not only with her teaching style, which is clear, concise, and empowering, but the smile on my son’s face after his lesson. He felt good about himself and the work he did with Alicia and that warmed my heart. Alicia is great and we look forward to our next lesson.

## Next to mom Alicia is the best.

My daughter is 11 years old and is entering the 7th grade. Last school year she was having a little problem with math in different stages and with that she had to attend summer school. My husband and I decided to give her more help and so we decided to search for an in home tutor, after doing a bit of research we came upon WYZANT and decided to give it a try. We reviewed a few candidates profiles and we decided to go with Alicia, that was the BEST we ever did, she is very patient and well organized, after just the first lesson with my daughter I could see the improvement and confidence in my daughter's eyes. When she went back to summer school the next week she was able to do the classes with enough confidence and ease. She was able to tell her friends in class I know I will do good on my test because of my tutor. Last Wednesday we got her summer school report card and she scored a 95. And we are pleased to say we owe it to Alicia she is wonderful and will really help with your kids, if ever you need a tutor Alicia is the way to go. Thank you Alicia.
