Hi !

I'm Alison. I'm a Special Education and Elementary Ed teacher in a public school. I've taught a variety of classes including Resource Center, First Grade and Preschool. I am currently teaching in a general education classroom with another teacher for 3rd and 4th grade.

I have a Master's Degree in Administration and Curriculum and completed the Principal/Supervisor program. I also have a second Master's in Special Education specifically learning disabilities. I have 13 years teaching and tutoring experience.

I make tutoring fun. I love to help students succeed and have tutored certain students for 10 years! Students who get tutored by me almost always improve 1-2 reading levels in the course of a school year and see a dramatic increase in their grades !!
