About Allison

Hello,

You have reached a tutor with personality. Phew! I am a funny and entertaining certified middle school math teacher who is tutoring full-time while taking care of my baby. I have 4 years experience as a middle school math teacher. I am certified for grades 5-12 through the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. I have a B.S. in mathematics, and am working on gaining a Master's degree in teaching secondary mathematics.

I have tutored students ranging in from third grade all the way to college differential equations. No student will be turned away. I have seen adults looking for help passing an exam, students who prefer weekly help, students preparing for the SAT, and college students needing a boost before finals. Anything requiring math is a possibility, Examples of exams I have tutored for: college placement exams including NSCC, Navy exam, MTEL general curriculum, and of course, the infamous SAT.

We normally meet in your house/apartment/dorm/library or a comfortable local coffee shop. You choose the location that works best for your schedule and I will show up ready. You will be hiring a down-to-earth educator that knows many different ways to explain topics and all sorts of fun ways to keep children engaged. If you promise to come ready to learn, I promise to come prepared and ready to rock. :-)

Contact me to see how I can help. Let's begin this journey together.
