"It is the extreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge" -Albert Einstein
Wise Mind was built on the philosophy that true wisdom is learned not only from the knowledge we receive, but from the way we receive it and perceive it. Wisdom cannot be dictated or forced upon us. One cannot gain wisdom by merely memorizing facts or cramming for a test. To truly achieve a wise mind, the heart and the head must be intertwined. Therefore, one must EXPERIENCE learning with JOY. When we learn with joy, we never forget. At Wise Mind it is our mission to create learning experiences that will keep each student immersed and actively involved in his/her education. Our aim is that our students begin their scholastic journey with an excited and ambitious outlook and achieve mastery. Upon succeeding academically, the children's confidence will soar and they will propel forward with a great sense of pride and accomplishment.
Miss Alissa is amazing! She has the ability to keep my 4 year old daughter engaged for 2 straight hours at a time with her custom made games tailored towards my daughter’s interests. She helps her with learning her letters, letter sounds, numbers, addition, shapes, patterns, opposites, counting, one to one correspondence, the list goes on and on!!! My daughter really looks forward to Miss Alissa coming over and has so much fun with her! I highly recommend her, you will enjoy seeing your child love learning too ;) Stacy P. Beverly Hills
Miss Alissa is one of the best tutors I have ever come across. She is patient, kind and makes learning enjoyable for my kids! We are so lucky to be able to work with her. My kids are more than prepared for school! Thank you Miss Alissa! We adore you! Kasey L. Bel Air
Alissa is an incredible tutor. My daughter has learning difficulties and Alissa is the only tutor we have found that can work with her effectively and successfully. She is patient and understanding and allows my daughter to go at her own pace while still making the experience fun! Learning used to be very frustrating for my daughter, now she can't wait for Alissa to come over and work with her! She even plays, "Ms. Alissa" when she's not here! I highly recommend her! Penny L.

Alissa is simply awesome!!! I'm blown away at how much my son has learned and now is reading on his own!!! Alissa is so much fun too. My son is always happy when he knows she's coming over. Alissa can keep an active almost seven year old BOY totally engaged and makes learning really fun and is so creative! I'm so thoroughly impressed and super happy with my sons progress. Thank you, Alissa!!! Krystal D. Pacific Palisades
Alissa is truly a gem. My son has advanced so much with her in the few times she's been seeing him. She has patience, knows how to talk to children, makes learning fun and comes up with great ideas on how to teach. My son adores her and is so happy when I tell him "Alissa is coming this afternoon!" Highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to advance their preschoolers skills. Gina G. Pacific Palisades
My friend recommended Alissa to me to tutor my six-year-old daughter Sarah who was having a bit of trouble with reading and phonics. My daughter love dolls so Alissa made specific board games involving dolls that Sarah loves and have gotten her excited about wanting to work on her reading and writing skills. Now everyday Sarah asks if Alissa is coming over after school! I'm thrilled with the progress that Sarah has made in a short time. I know Alissa gets booked up, but if anyone needs a tutor for a younger child, she is the one! Sharon R. Los Angeles
Alissa has been working with my son for 4 months. She started working with him to prepare him for Kindergarten and Kindergarten (private school) assessments. Before her he could only tell you the letters of his name and count to 5. After working with Alissa, he is counting to 20, identifying numbers 1-10, can say and write all of his letters and letter sounds, knows his shapes, can do patterns, and even do some basic math! We found out that not only did he get in to the top two schools that we were looking at, but that they were both thoroughly impressed at his skill set! Thank you, thank you, thank you Ms. Alissa!

Alissa has been our homeschool teacher during Covid. She has absolutely exceeded our expectations and lives up to her glowing reputation. She truly offers a top-notch private school experience. She is very cautious and follows all Covid protocol as well. The curriculum and lesson plans are enriching, creative, stimulating and fun. The children have learned more this year than we could’ve imagined, and have enjoyed every minute of it! And we love the updates, newsletters, pictures, videos, report cards, and can’t wait to receive the scrapbook she is making for us! She is, for sure, the best of the best. Ellie S. Pacific Palisades
