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.

Extremely flexible

Allison arranged her schedule around my son's baseball schedule and came to our house at 9:30pm in order to help him prepare for a quiz the following day. We are very grateful for her willingness to do what it takes to ensure our sin's success!

Very easy to talk to!

Allison is very approachable. She definitely came well prepared and has a variety of tools to help my daughter with her struggles in her studies. She also offered valuable suggestions for the upcoming ACT testing. We are looking forward to Tuesday's session. We think Allison could be the right answer to my daughters problems.

Great tutor

Allison came with plenty of material for me to work on. She takes the time to make sure you understand what she just explained before she moves on. I would recommended Allison as a tutor to anyone looking for help in math.

Michael, 1 lesson with Allison

Wonderful Tutor!

Allison is patient and reliable and has an excellent demeanor for tutoring. She is presently tutoring my twin sons (one with special needs) and they are both doing significantly better since starting with Allison. She treats my special needs son just like my typically developing son and they both love her! She's a fine person and a fine tutor and I highly recommend her (but only if it doesn't make her too busy for us!)
