About Alisa Bettale

Online Instructor Bio

Originally from Tokyo, Japan, Alisa moved to the United States to get her BS in Physics (Astrophysics Track) from Carnegie Mellon University and MS in Astronomy from San Diego State University. Although she loved researching about supernovae, she found her true passion in teaching, allowing her to share the exciting world of physics and astronomy with her students. She has primarily taught AP Physics 1, AP Physics 2, and PLTW Introduction to Engineering Design. Alisa received an EdM from Harvard Graduate School of Education and is certified to teach physics and technology/engineering. She loves seeing her students gain confidence in their STEM skills and see the positive impact that science and engineering brings to the world! In her free time, Alisa loves to play the drums, travel with her husband Andrea (ask her about their recent cross-country road trip!), and find good ramen restaurants in the United States.

  • What advice do you have for homeschool and self study students?

    From Alisa: "Have a dedicated space where you can focus on studying. Dedicate parts of your day to be fully focused in this space, but be reasonable - make sure you leave room for breaks and refresh your mind away from the study space. Most importantly, never be afraid to ask for help! You are not alone in this, and we are always here for you!"

  • How hard will AP Physics 2 be and what can students expect from the workload?

    From Alisa: "AP classes are challenging and fast-paced, and this course is no different. Be prepared to learn concepts at a rapid pace through livestreams and study guides, as well as completing a weekly FRQ-based assessment. There will be additional resources to supplement your learning, such as online discussions and lab simulations."

  • What is the teacher's experience with AP Physics 2?

    From Alisa: "I’ve taught AP Physics 2 for two years. In addition, I’ve taught honors physics courses that cover topics found in AP Physics 2, as well as designed and taught a second-year electricity and magnetism physics course for one of the schools I worked at.
