Hello, I'm Allison, and I would love to help you enjoy physics! I provide a range of educational services ranging from teaching entire courses online, focused work in specific areas of difficulty, summer preparation for upcoming courses, exam preparation, and assisting teachers new to physics. I am an experienced physics teacher currently teaching conceptual physics, Honors Physics, AP Physics C Mechanics, AP Physics C Electricity and Magnetism, and Quantum Physics. I received my Bachelors of Science in Physics from MIT in 2014, and then began a PhD in particle physics. During that time I began teaching classes and tutoring, and I found that helping students gain confidence in physics and overcome difficulty was a true passion of mine. I especially enjoy working with students in a one-on-one setting, so I became a high school physics teacher in order to reach more students in this way.

When working with a student, my primary goal is to build their understanding, confidence, and independence through explanations, worked examples, cooperative problem solving, and finally student-led solutions. I always hope to make this process as relevant and fun for the student as I find it to be. Physics governs our daily lives, and understanding it enriches everything we do!

I have six years of experience teaching high school physics, and about 90% of my AP Physics C students score a 5 on both the Mechanics and Electricity and Magnetism exams. I have spent over a decade of my life living and breathing physics, and I am very familiar with the misconceptions that students have when learning physics. This makes it easy for me to meet students at their level, correct misconceptions that they currently experience, and build from there.

I work full-time as a teacher during the week, but I offer flexible evening and weekend hours. Please contact me if you are interested in understanding physics together or if you have more questions about my availability or teaching style!

She quickly helped my son finish 2 labs for physics

She was prompt and flexible and finished in less than an hour which was appreciated. Allison is quick to assess what my son had to do and was able to get him through it quicker than he could have in his own. We will use her again

Sue, 5 lessons with Allison

Physics C

She is an excellent teacher. Very knowledgable and caring.. She goes out of her way to elucidate difficult concepts. I highly recommend her to serious students who would like to do well in their physics classes.She is a find!
