I was a tenured teacher at a nearby school district, but have decided to take a break to stay-at-home with my children. I have a decade of teaching and tutoring experience with the biological sciences. I have a 95% pass rate on the AP Biology and AP Environmental exams. I also design each lesson with the specific student in mind so that the highest results can be achieved. My goal is to prepare each of my students to feel comfortable and ready for any exam or course that they will be taking over the information we cover.
I majored in Biology in college. My degree allowed for me to develop a background in molecular biology, genetics, microbiology, ecology, evolutionary biology, physiology, and comparative anatomy. I also worked as a technician in a plant ecology/botany lab.
I am a hard-working person and I am not intimidated by a challenge.
My experience in tutoring includes middle school science, high school biology, high school anatomy, AP Biology, AP Environmental Science, ACT Science, college-level Biology, college-level Anatomy and Physiology, and college-level genetics.
I'm an enthusiastic teacher! I enjoy helping others to develop their scientific knowledge. Please contact me if you would like a personalized tutoring plan to help you to reach your scientific goals!

Prepared, thorough, flexible, enthusiastic & supportive
There's no better time to assess the effectiveness of a tutor than during distance learning. Due to fully virtual instruction for my son this year, he was in need of additional support in his AP Biology class. Allison immediately jumped in when I reached out, providing ongoing support during a time when there was limited classroom instruction due to the virtual learning model. She is an absolutely terrific AP Biology tutor, having inspired my son to continue studying the subject while in college. He will truly miss learning from her. May your child be so lucky to learn from Allison, too!Susannah, 94 lessons with Allison

Made me interested in the topic
Great teacher! Thank you so much for your help with my biology project on molecular clocks. If I ever need additional assistance, I will ask Allison again.Lana, 1 lesson with Allison
Amazing and Knowledgeable Tutor
I was honored to be a student of Allison through my junior year of high school in a new and difficult class. I was enrolled in anatomy and physiology and I found myself needing extra support, which is where Allison was able to help me tremendously by making me feel more confident and knowledgeable in the subject. Allison was great at making time available with my busy schedule and with the time difference, which I am very grateful for. As well as, Allison was one of the first tutors I meet online and she made it very easy to learn as if she was in-person next to me. During the lessons, Allison would tailor to my needs and help me with memorization, test-taking tips, and understanding the curriculum of my course. She was able to adjust to my needs by being available to meet serval times a week or not meet for weeks if I did not need extra help during the time. Allison was also great for teaching me with everyday examples to better my understanding of what I was confused about in class. I am so grateful I was able to receive help from Allison during one of the hardest and most confusing classes (at times) in one of my most stressful years of high school. I would recommend Allison as a tutor for any student would need help with learning about anatomy and/or physiology. She is a very educated tutor that I hope to reconnect with once I am in a college biology course (since she is also educated in teaching biology). Thank you so much, Allison and I hope my review will be able to help others seeking some support.Alyssa, 48 lessons with Allison
Excellent Biology Tutor
My son was struggling in his Honors Biology class, so we decided to enlist Allison’s help. She was kind and patient and explained concepts in ways my son understood. Allison seemed very adaptable to different learning styles and was also very flexible in scheduling. She helped my son ace his state milestone exam and end his course with a much higher grade than he would have without her tutoring. We highly recommend her.

Accommodating and resourceful
Thank you Allison for meeting with my son during the holidays to help review and prepare for the 2nd semester of AP biology. He said it was helpful to review and looks forward to working on some review problems before school starts again.Laurie, 7 lessons with Allison
My son is a senior and taking AP environmental science - for whatever reason he was struggling with this class. I hired Allison and on his last test he ended up with a 90% which pushed his grade up. I will use her all year!! Appreciate the support and her flexibility in scheduling sessions. Would recommend!Christine, 10 lessons with Allison
Allison was the perfect tutor for m daughter who was struggling in AP Biology!!! Alison's experience as an AP Biology teacher made her super effective in not only knowing exactly what my daughter was learning but pointing her in right direction as to where the class was going. My daughter loved the session and we will be using Allison through the school year!!Camille, 15 lessons with Allison
Knowledgeable and patient
Allison is a great tutor. At first I thought that online tutoring wouldn’t work for me but Allison helped me understand science & biology way better then me just reading about it. She’s knowledgeable & patient, that’s what makes her an awesome tutor!!Brittany, 5 lessons with Allison
A wonderful explanatory teacher.
Allison T. has helped me understand science way better than I have all school year and I love her teaching techniques.Brianna, 14 lessons with Allison
