The students should come prepared the lessons with questions, and I can provide additional guidance and practice questions.

She is always on time, communicates frequently was extremely friendly and encouraging during the lesson - my daughter said "I like her, she's nice" and I think it helps make the lessons more successful!

Alyssa helped me with concepts in grade 11 chemistry this semester. I wasn't doing very well and she was non-judgemental and very sweet when it came to helping me get a basic understanding. She took time to re-explain concepts over until I understood. She worked at a pace that worked for me and always came with to our lessons with a smile and positive attitude. I would highly recommend Alyssa for any students looking for a tutor. In my experience, she was so friendly and was able to help me actually understand chemistry concepts and apply that information to projects and assignments. Please consider her as a tutor, you won't regret it!

Alyssa is tutoring my son in Chemistry and Biology at the moment. She was a great choice as she is enthusiastic, knowledgeable and a good listener and communicator. I'm sure she'd be a great teacher in any number of subjects. Highly recommended.
