About Allyson

Hi! My name is Ally. I am a tutor, a teacher with six years in the classroom, and a military wife who just moved to Illinois. Because of the move, I am not teaching this year, and instead get to focus on tutoring! In addition to that passion, I love running, volleyball, reading, writing, and desserts (hence the need for the running).

Here is a list of subjects in which I have tutored students: Algebra; Geometry; GRE test prep; GED test prep; elementary, middle and high school math; elementary, middle and high school science; elementary, middle, high school, and college reading/writing/literature.

Additional Qualifications: lifetime DESE certification in grade 1-6 for all subjects; lifetime DESE certification for science for grades 6-9; experience with Tutor Doctor and Varsity Tutors.

I really enjoy getting to know my students and helping them to succeed.

Because I have taught math in the classroom or as a tutor, I am really familiar with the school curriculum and with multiple techniques for solving problems. As a former pre-medical major, I worked with statistics and went through Calculus, so my knowledge is broad. I can make up real-world problems easily and pride myself on helping students to find methods that work for them, as there is almost always more than one way to solve a problem.

I was an English major with concentrations in Linguistics and World Literature. I have tutored elementary, middle, high school, college, and adult students in reading and writing. My personal ACT scores were 34 for both reading and writing, so I am familiar with both producing good writing and the skills you need to perform well on a test.

Contact me today! I will bring determination and positive feedback, and we'll work together toward your success. If you are curious if I can meet your needs for a subject that I didn't list, please inquire: I will be honest with you about whether or not I feel that I would be the best match for you

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.

ACT English

As a test-taker, I was very successful on the ACT, scoring a 34 on the English sub-test.

Common Core

I am a lifetime Missouri DESE certified teacher in grades 1-6 (all subjects) and science (grades 5-9). I spent six years as a classroom teacher in the Parkway School District in Missouri creating and delivering Common Core aligned lessons, preparing students for the test with practice materials, and administering the test.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a MO DESE lifetime certification in grades 1-6, four years experience as an elementary classroom teacher, and two years experience as a middle school science teacher. Additionally, I have been tutoring students for the past twelve years both privately and for tutoring companies!

Elementary Math

I have a Missouri lifetime certification in elementary education grades 1-6 which includes the subject of math. During my four years teaching elementary math to students, I designed assessments and delivered instruction in alignment with state and district standards. Additionally, I tutored elementary students within this area for five years.

Prealgebra

I have twelve years total tutoring experience in pre-Algebra, Algebra, and Geometry. I gained this experience as a Tutor for Tutor Doctor, as a Summer School Aide, and as a Classroom Teacher who ran after school tutoring and enrichment sessions. I also privately tutored students in math for four years.

Public Speaking

In college, I participated in a public speaking course as well as a course on how to perform comedy routines that culminated in a performance (graded) in front of a live audience. In college, I acted in plays, and my career has been spent speaking in front of middle-to-large size groups of students and colleagues!

Study Skills

I have spent six years as a certified teacher and twelve years as a tutor, and every year, my students and I brainstormed and practiced study skills to prepare them for assessments. I am familiar with research on effective study methods and have designed a variety of different systems for individual learners that tend to combine traditional methods and some technology.

Great Tutoring Sessions — I have nothing but positive comments regarding my tutoring sessions with Allyson. My first session we went over the general math diagnostic test to assess my strengths and weaknesses. From there I did some reviewing on my own and pinpointed the questions I had difficulty with. Our next session Allyson went over these questions with me. She was able to explain to me the best way to attack these que ...
