Wonderful Tutor

My daughter has ADHD and she is in 7th grade. She just loves Allison. My daughter is struggling with math and Allison is great with her. Allison has taught my daughter new techniques that has helped her grasp math concepts. My daughter is regaining her confidence back and I’m sure she will like math again with Allison’s help.

Helping my daughter gain confidence

My daughter really likes Allison a lot and she is gaining confidence in her math ability. I'm hopeful she'll be able to gain the skills she needs.

Steven, 4 lessons with Allison

Wonderful elementary math tutor

Allison came prepared and used manipulatives to work with my son. He was engaged throughout the session despite not having his ADHD meds prior. He is looking forward to the next session. She was able to understand how to help him and has a plan to move forward. We are encouraged!

Very understanding

My daughter enjoys Allison and I've realized that she's really patient with her. I love her fun spirit and personality. I have confidence that my daughter will get to where she needs to be in her reading skills.

English tutor

My daughter was very comfortable with Allison from day one, and is very excited for every class. Allison makes every interaction more friendly and easy, as a result the focus is on learning and more fun.

Wonderful job teaching reading and building confidence

Allison has been wonderful with our 7 year old. He was really struggling with reading, and we were starting to see homework turn into battles. She's really patient when he's restless or not in the mood to focus, and great at getting him interested in working with her. Allison has used a variety of different strategies with him that helped him build his basic skills and also improved his confidence and attitude about reading. We've seen clear improvement in his number of sight words and in his ability to sound out unfamiliar words.
