About Allison

I am a graduate of Southwestern college where I graduated with my Bachelor's degree in elementary education. I am a certified teacher in the state of Missouri and Kansas. I am currently teaching second grade and love watching my students grow and develop day by day. My motivation comes from watching students grow to love subjects that they may not have liked, or were not very good at.

I try to be flexible with time, but do have a cancellation policy. Please let me know if you need to cancel 5 hours prior to our set tutor time. I am willing to travel to your location. I am looking forward to hearing from you!

Please contact me to set up a time to meet! I look forward to getting to know you and helping you succeed!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 am a certified teacher in the states of Missouri and Kansas. I teach common core math and reading daily. I also tutor students from all grades after school on certain days.

Elementary Math

Being an elementary teacher, I teach math on a daily basis. When teaching math I go about it in many different ways. One thing I feel is very important is first starting out with the basics. I will make sure that the students are confident with number counting and basic addition and subtraction facts. We will then go on to look at covering multiplication and division. I believe that being able to identify graphs and money will help them in the future. In my classroom I work with students on white boards and create games to make the topic more enjoyable. These are all strategies that I will use with any student that I tutor.

Elementary Science

As a second grade teacher, I teach science regularly. Elementary science is based around the students being hands on and seeing things by doing. In my classroom I teach the students by doing experiments and then learning from them. This is how I would tutor students with science. It is very important for the students to see how science is important and how it works!

Reading

Being an elementary teacher, I teach reading on a daily basis. When teaching reading I go about it in many different ways. One thing I feel is very important is first making sure the students can sound the words out correctly and they do not skip any words. Next, we work on fluency of reading. The more the student practices, the more confident and quicker the student will become. Lastly, we work on comprehension. I model for my students how to ask yourself questions as you read. As they hear me ask myself questions, they will start to learn how to ask themselves questions as they read. These are all strategies that I will use with any student that I tutor.

Wonderful Tutor — I like the strategies she uses to help my 7 year old daughter who's struggling with Reading and Math. We just had our first lesson today, and I'm going to start using her as a tutor weekly. ...
