My name is Alison and I love to teach!
I truly have a passion for helping students to better understand math and science, and to help build their confidence and remove any fears or insecurities that they may have developed. As I teach and work problems with a student, I also emphasize study skills such as time-management and organization, as well as test taking skills and problem solving strategies. I use my real-world engineering experience to broaden my student's education.
I began tutoring at Western Washington University's Tutorial Center while studying Geology about 13 years ago. After earning a BS in Geology and a MS in Civil Engineering, I worked as a Professional Engineer (PE License current) for 6 years before returning to my favorite job, tutoring, 3 years ago.
I have experience working with students of all ages, including college students. Subjects include basic math through calculus, chemistry, geology, engineering, ISEE and SAT test preparation, and more. I look forward to working with you!
