Hello!

My name is Allison and I may be the perfect tutor for you!

I am a recent graduate from ISU in which I majored in English Education. I graduated with honors (Magna Cum Laude)and even had a paper selected for presentation and publication in the ISU publication Polyglossia.

I gained experience student teaching at Clinton High School in an American Literature classroom in which I taught students of all ability levels, including those with IEPs and 504 plans as well as advanced students. I have further experience working with adolescents at my church where I teach the high school Sunday school class.

As a recent graduate, I have the most up-to-date teaching philosophies and practices at the forefront of my mind. I believe in teaching through physical examples, visuals, and hands-on activities. I was praised for my incorporation of technology in the classroom, but do not shy away from a tech-free environment.

I would love to see how I can help your student succeed, so please contact me today!
