About Allison

I received my B.S. in mathematics from Western Illinois University. I also hold three masters in Computer Science, International Management, and Business Administration. I have a strong background in education: from teaching remedial geometry at the high school level to intermediate algebra at the college level. I have been tutoring for over 8 years in all levels of mathematics, high school physics, and ACT prep. I am very patient with students. By using technology, dry erase boards, memory tricks, and even a good old fashion pencil and paper, math can be taught and the experience can be fun. Any person can learn and understand math with the right help and encouragement. Let's get your student on the road to enjoying math.

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.

Computer Science

I received a Master in Computer Science from the University of Illinois. I love working on computers, the software and hardware. I have a side business developing websites and databases for local businesses.

Elementary (K-6th)

In college, I studied to be a teacher of mathematics. The courses I took in college consisted of several primary, secondary, and special education. We studied the different development stages in life and different learning techniques. I have taught at the high school and college level. I have several grammar students right now that I have been with for almost 3 years. I have refereed ice hockey for 6 years (age group from 4 to 16). I love working with kids of all ages.

Linear Algebra

I majored in Mathematics, one of the courses that was requested was linear algebra. I excelled in the this topic in high school and college. I have successfully help many students in this area.

Marketing

Marketing is more than just advertising. I have learned in my MBA program that there are more components to to marketing. There are psychology and analytical elements to it. Also, a lot of research and development. I have been fortunate enough to take several marketing classes and international marketing classes.

Microsoft Outlook

Both my universities have used Outlook. Therefore, I have been working with it for 7 years. I have actually had to write a program that helps better sort spam.

Microsoft Windows

I grew up in the era of computers. I am biased towards Windows over Mac, Unix and Linux. I have a lot of experience and patience teaching Windows, especially to elderly women. I am a computer science major, so if I can't navigate through Windows, I should pick a new study.

Softball

I have played travel softball throughout my life. From the time I was 5, I have played softball. I was on several travel teams for 8 years. I love the game and it is very easy to learn.
