Hi! I am Allison and I can't wait to help you and your student succeed. I am a 6-12th certified teacher with three years of experience teaching 7th and 8th grade Social Studies and English.

American History

I have four years of teaching experience in American History. I have a BA in History from Michigan State University.


I have taught English and Creative Writing for the past 4 years. I am an avid reader and writer. I have a lot of experience with different types of writing genres as well as with citations. I can assist with grammar, word choice, adding detail, and other aspects of improving writing.

Social Studies

Social Studies includes many aspects of the social sciences including, but not limited to: Geography, history, anthropology, political science/government, economics and civics. Social Studies often focus on the interrelationships among these various disciplines.

I have taken and passed the Michigan Test for Teacher Certification in Social Studies. That means I am Highly Qualified to teach Social Studies to 6-12 graders in the state of Michigan.

As a Social Studies teacher, I have a lot of experience in teaching these subjects. For the past two years I have taught ancient civilizations and United States history. I also have experience teaching geography and current events.

Study Skills

Study Skills include many important aspects required for academic success. Things I would focus on when teaching study skills are test-taking strategies, organization of writing, personal organization (finding a system that works for homework), reviewing of notes, and note-taking skills.

I teach middle school students, and one of the biggest challenges I see with them is the difficulty of balance. I spend a lot of time with students working on time management, organization, and setting routines. This has helped tremendously and has helped many students be more successful.

Allison works to help him break down his work into manageable parts, and keeps him moving forward. She is very organized and is trying to help my son get organized with his work also. She is very responsible, and responds to my texts as quickly as possible. I've never spoken to Allison, and ...
