About Allison

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Taylor University. I recently held licenses in Special Education, Elementary Education, and TESOL. I have taught all over the world in a variety of countries such as Liberia, Israel, and China.

I have worked extensively with students with a variety of learning and physical challenges such as cerebral palsy and autism, as well as children with diagnosed learning disabilities and focusing challenges.

As a third grade teacher my students excelled in math, as I scaffolded lessons to meet their needs.

I've taught English in China on multiple occasions. In addition to that I tutored South Korean college students at an American university.

As a third grade teacher I had a broad understanding of what children need to know to be successful in school. I had to teach K-2nd grade standards to help some children catch up, and 4th-6th grade standards to help others challenge themselves, in addition to the 3rd grade standards I was already teaching.

Under my instruction multiple children with learning disabilities were able to pass the state standardized test for reading, despite being years behind when I began teaching them.

If you know a child that's struggling in school, I would love to help!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I received licenses from the state of Indiana in Elementary Education General (K-6), ESL, and Special Education (Mild to Moderate Learning Disabilities). I taught for a year and a half in a Title I school, but had to move for my husband's job. I have since become an Educational Therapist, specializing in learning disabilities. My licenses have just recently expired.

Elementary Math

I have extensive experience in small group intervention instruction, primarily in math and reading, helping students develop the skills to be confident and successful.

Phonics

I worked as a third grade teacher in a Title I school helping third graders master K-2 standards in preparation for IREAD (Indiana's state standardized test for reading). I used Florida's Institute for Reading Research as well as small group and 1-1 intervention. Despite having been held back several years with a learning disability, two of these children went on to pass the test.

Reading

Before I became an educational therapist, I was a third grade teacher. I have a broad understanding of what young people need to know in order to be successful readers.
