About Allison

Hello! My name is Allison and I am a teacher In Indy but live in Lafayette. I have taught at the elementary level for six years. I am a firm believer that children need to have time to practice what they are learning so when I work with students, I also give them lots of time to practice a newly learned skill. It is also very important that kids learn to love learning. I help this happen by finding ways to involve what they love into lessons and teach in a way that best meet their needs. For example, if your child loves to move around then it does not make much sense for me to try to force him/her to sit still and learn. I would instead involve some type of movement into teaching the skill. I really do try to meet my students where they are and help them develop the skills necessary for them to reach their highest potential! Hello!

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.
