Hi! I’m Annalisa! I am an Academic Coach for Staying Ahead of the Game LLC. I have a bachelor’s degree in Modern Languages & Cultures from Pace University and a Master’s of Arts in teaching, secondary education, and Italian literature from Hunter College of the City University of New York. I have several years of teaching experience thoroughly enjoying watching the students I work with as they grow. 

I always present a professional demeanor and a high standard of coaching as I work on cultivating the whole student, which includes the academic, socio-emotional, and personal well-being of each student. I love being able to help students realize their full potential and giving them the confidence to grow into the adult they dream to be.  It is important for young adults to realize that their mistakes are not a failure, but rather that they are teachable moments that can enable them to grow and learn.  I look forward to being a part of their journey.
