I take a person-centred approach, meaning I design my methodology according to the student. Each person learns in their own way and at their own pace and it is the teachers duty to align themselves with the student's learning process.
I have a BA in Psychology and multiple certifications related to neurorehabilitation. Additionally, I have over 8 years experience working with individuals living with acquired brain injuries, chronic mood and personality disorders, and substance abuse.
While I was in University I began tutoring various psychology courses (statistics, intro to psych, personality psychology, history of psychology etc.) and have a genuine enjoyment of the material. Further, I was a Toastmaster for a few years which gave me even more opportunities to practice both writing and public speaking.
*I include an extra 30mins at no charge for the first lesson so we can talk about goals and make sure we're on the same page before beginning
Perfect! She is a knowledgable tutor and very nice. She could make the boring things become very interesting!
I've known Alyssa for quite some time. Her dedication to acquiring and sharing her knowledge with others is part of her core.
I still fondly remember talking with her about neuroscience many years ago. Always interesting and fun to converse with!
Given her breadth of personal, academic, and professional experience, Alyssa is the perfect person for this. Having personally fought through depression, she approaches these topics from a realistic, grounded framework. During her undergrad, she was published for her personality research. Finally, at work, she helps brain injured folks - a job requiring patience, kindness, and compassion. I can't think of anyone more qualified or experienced.
Knowledgeable, trustworthy, funny and friendly! Knows her subjects, especially enthusiastic about Psych
Also can teach you how to do spinning back elbows and roundhouse kicks... If you were so inclined. Very knowledgeable in the sport of Muay Thai kickboxing!
Alyssa’s dedication to her craft has gone beyond the expectation, she moved her entire life to pursue her career. She is always trying to better herself and help others do the same.
