## Lifesaver!

Tara, 29 lessons with AllisonMy son was getting a C- in AP Physics C Mechanics with only a few weeks to go in the semester. He met with Allison 2-4 times per week for the last few weeks and he ended up with an A-. She was flexible, organized, and encouraging. My son DID NOT want to get tutoring, but he changed his mind after meeting with her. Can't recommend her highly enough.

Hello, I'm Allison, and I would love to help you enjoy physics! I am currently accepting students for summer preparatory courses for AP Physics 1 and 2 and for AP Physics C Mechanics and E&M.

I provide a range of educational services ranging from teaching entire courses online, help with college physics courses, focused work in specific areas of difficulty, exam preparation, and assisting teachers new to physics. I am an experienced physics teacher currently teaching conceptual physics,...

GRE

Chemistry,
#### Chemistry

I have experience teaching both chemistry and physical science to high school students with a huge range in mathematical background. I have found visualization to be a crucial tool for teaching these concepts as well as solving problems, allowing students who may be less comfortable with math to understand these problems.

#### Physics

I have a degree in physics from MIT.
I have taught AP Physics C, both mechanics and electricity and magnetism, for five years, and 90% of my students score a 5 on both exams.

SAT Math,

## Amazing tutor: gets inside the students thinking process

If I could give 10 out of 5 stars, I would! Allison has been helping my daughter for eight months navigate AP physics C- and has done an amazing job at teaching her basic concepts, rebuilding missed concepts from her prior physics classes, identifying learning gaps and filling them in. Allison provides challenge questions/ extra practice which has been instrumental in helping to solidify concept understanding. My daughter has done well in physics and continues to love the subject. What sets Allison apart from others is her patience in explaining a concept. She's able to identify the student is not understanding, and approach the concept in several different ways until the student shows understanding. Further, she genuinely cares about her students success, with consistent follow up - reviewing past tests, checking in. Allison made time for my daughter when she knew she needed it, despite her otherwise busy schedule, which I am SO GRATEFUL for. If you ever need a personal reference for Allison, it would be ok with me to ask her for my phone number and I am happy to provide my experience details - she is really really amazing. Many thanks Allison!

## Knowledgeable and Kind Tutor

Allison is a really helpful tutor who always has lots of resources to guide my learning. Her breadth of knowledge was also amazing, and she was always able to answer my physics questions, even if they were not covered in the AP Physics Mechanics Curriculum. I'd highly recommend anyone looking for a physics tutor to choose Allison.

## 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

## 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!
