About Allison

I have a current credential in Social Science and I am currently a high school teacher. I have taught almost every high school social science subject including: Geography, Modern World History, US History, Introduction to Psychology, AP Psychology and Economics. I also worked for a national tutoring company for five years tutoring reading and math with K-8 graders.

I have also coached JV softball for three years and have given private pitching lessons. I have experience with working with students that are behind grade level, at grade level, and advanced.

I believe that learning happens when students know that the teacher/tutor cares about them and their success and that the subject matter becomes relevant to them. I am a big believer in positive reinforcement and praise. I have experience working in a traditional classroom, tutoring, and working working in a non-traditional classroom environment. The advantage to tutoring is that all my attention can be focused on one individual student and this increases the students focus, engagement and learning.

I prefer to conduct my tutoring in a library or coffee shop. My experience has shown that there can be too many distractions at the home unless there is specific space devoted to tutoring without much noise or interference from other family members.
