About Allyson

I am an exceptional English tutor with 10 years' experience tutoring students in writing, English, and related subjects at the college level. I have also worked as an English instructor for universities and community colleges for the past 10 years. I have taught and tutored students of diverse races, backgrounds, and learning levels, and I enjoy all aspects of the tutoring process. I enjoy discussions, encouraging critical thinking, and helping students develop their writing skills. I find that often, a one on one tutoring session helps students who are afraid to ask questions in class.

I have a BA in English from the University of Kansas, an MA in English from Emporia State University, and a PhD in English from the University of Oklahoma. I have taught composition and literature and technical writing, and I feel confident assisting learners in these fields. I believe in discussing the topics to identify the problem areas, and I believe in asking questions designed to develop and enhance a student's understanding of the material. I am happy to assist with grammar, but I will encourage the student to try and locate most of the errors before I point them out.
