Alyssa Loh is a writer, filmmaker, and educator. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa with Honors from Princeton with a degree in English, and holds a dual MBA (business) / MFA (film) from NYU, where she graduated with Distinction (top 10%). Due to her excellent academic record at the business school, she was consistently hired as a Teaching Fellow across the undergraduate, MBA, and executive MBA programs for core quantitative classes like statistics. In that role, she held office hours on behalf of professors, graded exams, ran in-class exercises, and helped business students with problem sets. She has years of experience privately tutoring a number of standardized tests, including the ACT, SAT, ISEE, SSAT, and SHSAT, as well as offering school support in English, Math, and Writing.
In her day-to-day life, Alyssa Loh is a filmmaker and writer. She was a Sundance Lab Fellow and a Sundance | Alfred P. Sloan Development Fellow, and was selected for TIFF Breakthroughs and Wscripted’s Cannes Screenplay List. Her films have won awards internationally, and her most recent short film — premiering at SXSW — won the Martin E. Segal Award, Roger King Award, Riese Award, Faculty Commendation in Filmmaking, and the Screenwriting Craft Award from NYU Graduate Film. She co-created the film series Twelve Theses on Attention, which premiered at the Glasgow Biennial, and the book version (text + film stills) was published by Princeton University Press. She also writes essays on technology and society for outlets like The New York Times, Artforum, and the Los Angeles Review of Books, and serves on the editorial board of the history journal, Lapham’s Quarterly.
As a tutor, Alyssa loves solving the puzzle of how each student learns best. She believes that students thrive when they feel confident and calm. She has delivered over a thousand one-on-one lessons in reading, math, and writing, and firmly believes in the transformative effect of personalized instruction. She brings an optimistic and friendly spirit to lessons, and loves seeing students draw self-esteem from watching themselves improve.
