Hi there! My name is Alicia and I was born and raised in California with my 5 brothers and sisters. Growing up here enables you to see the surf and snow - therefore, I love the beach and all of its glory as well as the mountains and snowboarding. In my downtime, I love to read books and write in my journal, refurbish old furniture and (this one might seem a bit weird) Organize! I have been to 7 different countries and I have to say it is a close tie between Croatia and Spain. Since being back home after living in Australia for two years, I have been exploring the beautiful National Forests we have. I have a newfound love for Redwoods and pitching a hammock wherever I can manage. I have my degree in Psychology and would like to begin courses in nutrition soon. Please feel free to ask me anything!
Growing up, I was always the go-to babysitter for family - which sparked an interest in me and I began babysitting for neighbors and family friends. Later, I began going to school for Child Psychology. Once I finished school, I began traveling and decided I would combine two of my passions into one. I made the decision to become an au pair and move in with, and become a tutor for their 3 young children. The original contract was for 6 months and was soon changed to 2 years! They became my second family and we still keep in touch today. Lastly, since my return back to California, I have tutored 3 students. Then, when the pandemic caused the stay-at-home order I became a full-time tutor for my 7th grade student for all areas of his studies - math, English, history, art, biology and P.E. I created a clear weekly schedule, daily routine and communicated often with parents and staff to ensure my student was surpassing any challenges. I do know the difficulty of transitioning from in-person to online and am very empathetic to that and attempt to make lessons and studies as smooth and understandable as possible. I understand that no two students are the same and can/will adjust my approach accordingly. I do hope you will take me into consideration, I am kind, patient and energetic and am happy to answer any questions you may have! *Currently my schedule is wide open as I am working from home and will make accommodations to fit your schedule. Thank you.
