About Alison

I graduated in the top 10% in my high school class of over 500 students. I earned my AA degree in Social Sciences and have taken upper level undergraduate courses, concentrating on different areas of Literature and History. My passions focus on English, Writing, Literature, and History. I have experience in research papers and essays using MLA and Chicago style citations. I also write creatively and have taken courses and been a beta reader for other writers. I excel at grammar and editing. I have observed and assisted in a second grade summer reading class and enjoy encouraging a desire for reading and learning.

My experiences also include basic math including algebra and almost 20 years working in Accounting and Bookkeeping. I have over ten years working with MS Office, especially Word and Excel. I have worked five years with different editions of QuickBooks. I set up accounting processes and QuickBooks for small company under the parent company where I worked.

I enjoy being able to assist any age level of students with their studies, keeping my own knowledge and skills up-to-date and being able to continue learning. I have patience and understand that people have different learning styles and will work with you to figure out what is best for your growth. Though I have not tutored long, I have helped beginning readers as well as adults in college level courses including history and biology. I look forward to assisting you with your education.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a meeting. I am usually available evenings 6pm-9pm and flexible on weekends; based in Clearwater but willing to travel throughout Pinellas and into Hillsborough.

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.

QuickBooks

I have worked with QuickBooks for five years using different versions. In 2012, I was responsible for setting up the accounting system in QuickBooks for a new child company of the corporation where I worked. This included purchasing the proper version and accessories and setting up a general ledger and any add-ons such as inventory.

Reading

I have always had a voracious appetite for reading. I have recently observed and assisted a 2nd grade Summer reading class structured to develop reading skills. Understanding that people learn differently, I think it is helpful to use site words, flash cards, phonetics, and repetition.

Writing

My focus in college was history and literature, the bulk of the course work included essays and research papers using MLA and Chicago style citations. As a hobby and passion, I also write creatively and have been a beta reader for others. I have worked extensively with online, library, and other areas of research related to research papers and personal writing.
