ALB Tutoring, LLC is an educational service that combines academic tutoring with psychological insights to help students learn better, with a focus on self-awareness and leveraging individual strengths. The company offers support in academia, standardized test preparation, college admission guidance, executive functioning, and services for international students. Their approach aims to foster personal, cognitive, and intellectual growth, equipping students with skills for current and future success, and training them with the aptitude to always learn better.
ALB Tutoring, LLC was founded in 2015 by Alessandra L. Badioli, who was inspired to create a new model for tutoring after her own experience with a tutor for the GMAT. Recognizing the need for continuous, individualized support beyond the traditional "teach and leave" approach, Alessandra, with her background in psychology, envisioned a more therapeutic, mentorship-driven relationship between tutor and student. The organization is rooted in the belief that students benefit from learning strategies that embrace their unique styles and strengths, thus empowering them to engage, build self-esteem, and learn better. This innovative hybrid of education and psychology aims to guide students not only in academic tasks but also in personal, cognitive, and intellectual growth.

Alessandra founded ALB Tutoring in 2015 after meeting with a tutor for the GMAT. This experience prompted her to reflect on the typical role of tutors, who often arrive, teach the lesson, and leave. She realized that students, particularly those in middle school, high school, and college, would benefit more from continuous, individualized support.
Drawing on her background in psychology, Alessandra envisioned tutors functioning more like therapists, as mentors with whom students develop a trusting relationship and meet on a regular basis. These professionals guide students through academic tasks while fostering unique strategies and skills to create and maintain change. She made it her goal to help students learn better and continuously evolves her practice into an innovative holistic hybrid within education and psychology.
Growing up between Manhattan, Connecticut, and Italy, Alessandra is a multilingual and multicultural citizen of the world. She attended Convent of the Sacred Heart 91st Street in New York City and Sacred Heart Greenwich in Greenwich, CT. She studied Economics and French at New York University and ultimately graduated from the University of Bologna in Bologna, Italy, before returning to New York to obtain a Master’s Degree in Psychology at The New School.
She is trained in executive-functioning coaching and is familiar with the competitive demands of rigorous middle school, high school and college life. She will change your child’s attitude, outcome, and life trajectory.
In addition to her love for helping students learn better, Alessandra keeps herself busy playing tennis, skiing, and needlepointing. She also enjoys reading, cooking, traveling, and entertaining with friends.
