Palma, Alyssa [MC2012]
English Teacher at VIPKID
Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain
A highly motivated and experienced teacher, tutor and nanny with a strong background in providing one-on-one services.
I am certified to teach grades K-12, specifically focusing on literacy and history. I graduated from Manhattan College, where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in secondary education, specifically social studies; I then went on to attend Columbia University where I received my Master’s Degree as a Literacy Specialist. My education helped me tremendously while teaching for the past 4 years. I have worked with first grade, fourth grade, sixth grade, and mostly high school students, mainly focusing on literacy skills. I have adapted tons of curriculums to best fit the needs of my students, because my primary goal is helping students reach their full potential. I also have experience tutoring the newest SAT exam. I recently became a certified TEFL English teacher after moving to Spain. I moved to Barcelona to practice my teaching in other capacities with a desire to continue my education.
My ability to work with students, teachers and parents in order to enhance learning has been commended many times. Moreover, I enjoy developing interactive materials for students that enable me to produce excellent results and help the student feel more confident in their abilities. Additionally, I possess a positive attitude and a passion to assist struggling learners, because I remember the days when I struggled and did not know where to turn.
