About Alison

I have always had a love of education because I've had some amazing teachers along my path. I graduated from Elmhurst College, located near Chicago, in 2011 with a B.A. in History and Secondary Education. Throughout my career, I have had many hats--I started out as a daycare director, then taught Middle School Science and Social Studies in the Southeast Asian country of Cambodia, then taught 4th grade in Chicago, which then lead me to teach at a blended charter school as a U.S. History teacher in Michigan.

Throughout college and through various school programs, I have been working with students one on one for many years. I enjoy tutoring because it gives me more opportunity to get to know my students at a more personal level. I enjoy building a rapport with students that allows them to know that I will do whatever I can to help them succeed. I enjoy challenging students and getting them to think critically about the topics they are learning and to help them see the bigger picture--with history, it's not just memorization, it's real life lessons that are applicable in our time today.

I am available weeknights between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. and will also do weekend hours, if discussed prior. My base charge is $40 per hour for in-person sessions. I will meet with students in public places of your choosing, such as a coffee house or library. I look forward to hearing from 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.

Social Studies

My minor in college was Social Studies. On my Illinois Teaching certificate, I am qualified to teach American History, Geography, Psychology, World History, Sociology, and Economics. Currently this year, I teach American History and Personal Finance, however, at the start of the year I was slated to teach Economics as well--however, I had too many students so it was given to another teacher.
