About Alison

My name is Alison, and I recently graduated Magna Cum Laude from Ole Miss with a B.A. in Public Policy Leadership and History. I am staying at Ole Miss for law school, so I am available for tutoring in and around the Oxford area. I've worked as a tutor for several years, both for the athletic department and freelance, and I can tutor Biology 102, Chemistry 101 and 105, Math 121 (college algebra), various history courses (though my focus is largely European history), philosophy 101, etc.. I also have a good bit of writing experience and can help with proofreading papers, and I can tutor non-college students in similar subjects as well.

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.

Algebra 1

I had an excellent algebra teacher in high school and took college algebra at Ole Miss. I had a 100 average in the class, and I have successfully tutored multiple students in algebra.

American History

I was a history major, and had a wide variety of history classes at Ole Miss. The key to tutoring history successfully is to make it come alive in order that the students can remember it more vividly and understand its impact on today.

Biology

Science has always been my strong suit. Not only is my mother a biology teacher, but I had 3 years of biology in high school and had a 100 in Biology 102 at Ole Miss. I cannot tutor Biology 160, but biology for non majors or high school biology are subjects that I am well-versed in and have experience tutoring.

Chemistry

I have tutored Chemistry 105 multiple times, and I can tutor it, the non-major's chemistry, and high school chemistry as well.

Elementary Math

I had excellent math teachers throughout middle and high school and took college algebra at Ole Miss. I had a 100 average in the class, and I have tutored multiple students in algebra, and many students struggle with algebra because they do not understand the basic concepts taught in earlier math classes.

European History

European history is my specialty. Not only did I have multiple classes on various subjects related to it, I also wrote my honor's thesis on Enlightenment ideas of freedom of speech.

Proofreading

As a history major, I had to write quite a good bit, and I successfully completed an undergraduate thesis. I know how much effort goes into writing a paper, and I know what it takes to make it great.

Writing

As a current law student, much of my time revolves around writing. As an undergraduate history and public policy major, the majority of my classes required papers. Additionally, my undergraduate career culminated with the completion of thesis. I am able to help with a variety of writing assignments. My main goals are to improve a student's basic grammar and their overall style of writing so that they ultimately will be able to confidently hand in a well-written paper on their own. I will not write a student's paper for them. My role is strictly limited to corrections and suggestions.
