About Alison

I have a Master's degree from Goucher College. I love teaching reading, English, and Language Arts to elementary, middle, and high school students. I have been in education for 40 years, and enjoy assisting every student reach his/her full potential in reading, English, and Language Arts. Every student can read and think critically about the text whether it is fiction, nonfiction, or media.

I have written Language Arts curriculum for school systems for many years, and know the expectations of the grade level standards. Most recently, I worked for the Maryland State Department of Education planning and implementing Language Arts instruction for the statewide turnaround schools. I look forward to assisting your child to love and be successful in reading, English, and Language Arts.

I have coordinated and written districtwide curriculum in reading, English, literature, and Language Arts. Also, the new SAT will focus on evidence-based reading which I am familiar with.

I have spent the last nine years assisting schools, teachers, Reading Specialists, and administrators with the transition and implementation of the Common Core grade-level standards.

I am excited to meet you and help you with anything you might need to be the best reader, writer, English/Language Arts student. I can also help you read and understand any content area subject. Looking forward to working with you!

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.

Common Core

I have spent the last 5 years at the Maryland State Department of Education under the federal Race to the Top education grant. I was on the reading team of the MSDE Breakthrough Center that provided professional development and technical assistance to schools to transition and implement the Common Core Standards. We planned and implemented lessons in every grade level using the grade-specific Common Core Standards.
