About Allison

I have been tutoring for several years, having started in high school as an AP test prep tutor. I have since tutored and been a classroom assistant in elementary school classrooms from TK to 5th-grade levels. I have worked with students on a variety of subjects, from English and history to 5th grade math to movement and dance. I also teach basic partner dance and other artistic pursuits.

I love to see my students grow and realize their potential. I see success in tutoring as a rise in the student's confidence with the material and themselves. I believe all students have important perspectives they can bring to a subject.

My major in linguistics and my minor in history honed my writing and analytical skills. Furthermore, my linguistics coursework has allowed me to understand English at the deepest levels.

I have studied Japanese since high school; my focus in college was on Japanese language and history. I can bring in cultural and historical aspects to language learning.

Please contact me for more information and to schedule lesson times with me!

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.

Ballroom Dancing

I learned ballroom and swing dancing in college, where I briefly competed on my school's team. Since then, I have tutored and assisted with teaching basic partner dance at multiple conventions. I especially work with students with little to no background dance experience. My work is hands-on and based on positive reinforcement.

Japanese

In college, I majored in linguistics and minored in history. I focused on Japan and Japanese in both fields. I bring a cultural, historical, and linguistic viewpoint to my Japanese tutoring.
