Hello, my name is Alexis! I am currently a rising junior at Georgetown University, where I am double majoring in Government (Political Science) and English. For the summer, I am home in Phoenix, Arizona where my schedule is incredible flexible and I would love to work with you!
I began tutoring during high school and absolutely fell in love with it. At Georgetown, I work at our university writing center, helping students of all years with the writing process. This Fall, I will be presenting my own research on tutoring at the National Conference on Peer Tutoring and Writing. My own tutoring style derives from my experience as a student and the techniques I have been taught in a class I took to become a writing tutor. I firmly believe in fostering a tutor-tutee relationship which thrives off of the strengths of the tutee, using what they do best to help them succeed. I also pride myself in being able to easily adapt to different learning styles and am always filling my toolbox with new ways of approaching our material.
My subject areas include mostly the humanities (reading, writing, history, literature). I am also able to help in middle school math as well as test prep for AP US History/Literature, the PSAT, and SAT.
I look forward to working with you soon!
