I am a certified special education teacher with an emphasis in deaf education and mild/moderate disabilities. I have taught in a variety of settings: family/homeschool groups, private church preschools, public schools, and a private high school. I have experience with infants/toddlers through high school students, but the bulk of my career has been teaching preschool and elementary school students.

I am trained in Phonics Plus and Orton-Gillingham methods.

When teaching deaf/hard of hearing students, I use the preferred communication method of the student (i.e. aural/oral, American Sign Language, total communication, etc.). I am also trained in auditory training.

Auditory training, modeling and imitation technique, and/or chaining can be emphasized while considering the child's primary mode of communication.

Terrific Tutor

Allison has been so helpful and patient with our 5 year old son who is learning English and trying to assimilate into school. She's also great at varying the activities so he doesn't get bored and stays focused. Thanks, Allison!

Considerate and a patient person

I liked working with Allison. She's very patient. I like that she gives review sheets and tips to help you with anything that you are struggling with. She's more considerate than the tutors I worked with before. She really got to know what I struggled with and always asked if I have questions or if I don't get something. She's also very nice.

Great Tutor!

Allison is a great tutor! I enjoyed working with her every step of the way! Allison is very understanding and patient, which I need in order to learn. I am a college student who needed help passing the Praxis test. I had taken this test many times before and missed it by a few points. Allison helped me with my problem subject areas (math and science) by providing additional resources to learn from. She also broke the content down for me and made it easier to learn by relating it to my life. I loved that she was always easy to reach, very easy to contact! She has a great personality and is very easy to work with! As a result from working with Allison, I passed my test and increased my score by 25 points!

Kind and very effective!

In one month, Allison has helped my son become more accountable for his work, organized in how he keeps his assignments, clear in communicating what he understands in math, clear in asking questions in math, he is receiving higher percentages on assignments and earned an A on his last exam! Most of all, he is now enthusiastic and growing more confident in math. Allison is a wonderful and effective tutor that teaches with kindness and patience.
