Tutor & College Advisor, Harlem,NY
Originally from Rochester, New York, Alyssa Block graduated from high school as a National Merit Scholarship finalist and the Valedictorian of her class. She attended NYU’s highly competitive Tisch School of the Arts, where she graduated cum laude with a BFA in Drama and a minor in English. What began as a penchant for editing her friends’ English papers and making up ridiculous songs and mnemonic devices to help classmates study for tests has blossomed into a passion for sharing her time and knowledge with others to help them achieve their own success. In addition to teaching test prep, Alyssa has served as a classroom aid in London, a playwrighting instructor in Nebraska, and an improvisational comedy teacher at the Children’s Village Sanctuary (a transitional home for homeless and runaway teens) in Westchester. She currently lives in Harlem and is pursuing a career in the arts.
