About Allyson

I have over ten years of experience teaching English, Reading, IB, and AP Literature. Additionally I teach study skills and implement various strategies in order to assist with student success. I believe a student must connect with a teacher in order to truly learn. I am excellent at building rapport with students in order to build confidence and guarantee achievement. I have taught all levels of English 6-12 and have a passion for teaching.

Additionally, I am able to assist students with study skills for all classes while I help parents navigate the often confusing waters of teachers conferences, guidance questions, college applications and the like. As a writing major I am able to relay my skills and guide students through college and classroom essays. I thoroughly enjoy helping with projects and setting up appropriate timelines in order to guarantee completion. I have a plethora of knowledge when it comes to the best way of connecting with teachers and this will help assure success in the classroom. I truly enjoy one on one tutoring and the results that are gained when a student is given the proper guidance and attention.

I make learning entertaining and fun!

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have taught students who are diagnosed with ADD/ADHD for 8 years. They are in every class I have ever taught and I accommodate the learning style through a variety of ways. The best way is to build rapport with a student first in order to discover which setting works best for them. From there I am able to create a lesson which will assist with their learning. For example, if a students feels more comfortable reading one paragraph at a time, I can have them get up and draw a picture on the board which best symbolizes what they learned from each paragraph. Constantly switching up lessons seems to work best.

College Counseling

I have assisted juniors and seniors with preparing for both the ACT and SAT. I have worked with students on researching colleges based on GPA requirements and SAT/ACT scores. I have helped tutor kids in order to raise scores and receive admittance to the school they wanted. I have contacts with college universities and admission officers. I have attended college fairs in order to counsel students on admittance requirements and scholarship options. Additionally, I have toured almost all college campuses in Florida in order to be abreast of college trends and admission requirements. I am able to assist students with college essays and researching the best college for for their personality.

Phonics

I have tutored Elementary level reading through SES companies in the past. I have worked with children during the summer to improve their phonetics and reading levels. I have worked with kids on spelling and sounding things out in order to improve reading. Systematically working through decoding and blending has always given strong results.

Study Skills

I am qualified to teach study skills because it has always been a part of my curriculum. When teaching a new concept it is important for teachers to model HOW a student should study. This is done through note-taking like Cornell Notes, chunking texts, and questioning what has been read and making predictions about what is next.

Study Skills must have consistency. For example, a student should have a plan every day, a place to write down their plan and a checklist of when the execute their plan. Reflecting upon what they studied is key to acquiring a new skill. I have also been certified in AVID through Orange County public school which teaches students study skills and organization.
