About Allison

My love of learning never seems to end and I feel like I am a forever college student. I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor's degree in Special Education. After graduation I took a couple years off before returning to work on my Master's degree. I graduated with my first Master's degree in curriculum and instruction with a focus in applied behavior analysis. I have also completed the required coursework for a graduate certificate in Autism Spectrum Disorder. In addition to special education coursework I have been concurrently working on a master's degree in curriculum and instruction with a focus in the area of talented and gifted. All of my education has helped me not only be successful in the classroom as a junior and senior high teacher but as a parent of a child who receives special education services as well.

I have tutored for the state as an AIMS tutor and specialize in the areas of math, social studies, reading and writing. I have taught or tutored all grade levels and enjoy them all. I ensure that all my students are working on achieving their individual academic goals and while celebrating the small victories along the way. My students consistently meet their goals and show growth in all subject areas I teach especially in regards to AIMS.

I set high standards for myself and communicate with parents on a regular basis. I look forward to feedback from parents. I am flexible with hours and my only request is that if necessary to cancel a tutoring session that I am notified within four hours of the session. I understand that sometimes situations beyond our control happen and do offer makeup sessions. I am willing to tutor in your home or at another location if necessary. I have an FBI clearance background check.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve academic success!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ADHD

I have a bachelor's degree in special education and ADD and ADHD fall under one of the 13 categories of special education. The majority of my students in my classroom have a diagnosis of ADD/ADHD. In addition my son has ADD so I know what challenges there are educationally and have first hand experience as a parent. I also have a master's degree in curriculum and instruction and my field work and practicums involved research and education plans with students who have ADD/ADHD.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I have an extensive background in working with individuals with autism. I have a bachelor's degree in special education. I also have a master's degree in curriculum and instruction with a focus in applied behavior analysis. In addition to my two degrees I have also completed the required graduate coursework for the Autism graduate certificate. I have taught individuals with disabilities including autism for the last 7 years. I am able to modify and adapt the curriculum to meet all learning styles so that students may meet the education objective.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified in the state of Arizona to teach k-12 special education and k-8 grade general education. I have tutored at all grade levels. In addition to 7 years of teaching experience I have a bachelor's degree in special education and a master's degree in curriculum and instruction. I also have over 180 hours of professional development in elementary education.

Phonics

I am certified in the state of Arizona to teach k-12 special education and k-8 grade general education. I have tutored at all grade levels. In addition to 7 years of teaching experience I have a bachelor's degree in special education and a master's degree in curriculum and instruction. I also have over 180 hours of professional development in elementary education. The majority of the elementary education professional development credits are in the area of language which phonics falls under.

Social Studies

I have been teaching social studies for 7 years. I have strong academic content in world history, government, and American history. I am the social studies department chair at the school I teach at. I have also met the requirements to be considered highly qualified to teach social studies in the state of Arizona.

Special Needs

I have a bachelor's degree in special education. I have taught for 7 years at a special education school in Mesa, Arizona. In addition to my bachelor's degree I have a M.Ed. in curriculum and instruction with a focus in applied behavior analysis and I am currently working on my second master's degree which has a focus in working with the talented and gifted. In addition to my degrees I have completed all the graduate level coursework for the graduate certificate in autism spectrum disorders.

Study Skills

I have been teaching special education for 7 years and part of my teaching has to focus on study skills and transition which is the heart of the IEP for high school students. A key element in helping students succeed is teaching them the necessary study skills they need to develop. I have experience in teaching study skills as I have a class that meets everyday for 45 minutes.

Excellent writing tutor

Allison was wonderful with my son. She was patient, talked him through the process, and helped to develop his writing skills. My son enjoyed the session with her. We can't wait for the next session.
