Alina Sayre is an English teacher/mentor at Fusion Los Gatos. She graduated summa cum laude from Seattle Pacific University with a BA in English, emphasis in creative writing. Alina is the author of an award-winning series of fantasy novels for young adults as well as several published essays and poems. In addition to over seven years of experience in private tutoring, she has also worked in a university, a bookstore, a community college, and a publishing house (plus a one-day stint as a sock model, but that’s another story). It is her passion to share her love of reading and writing with her students.
When she’s not reading, writing, or teaching, Alina enjoys hiking, Broadway musicals, exploring independent bookstores, collecting crazy socks, and feeding zucchini to her rescue dog, Hamlet.
