About Allyson

I have spent over 17 years in the public school system, with the last three years serving as an administrator. While teaching in public school, I received Teacher of the Year for my school and county, as well as NC Grange Teacher of the Year. I have just entered my third year of homeschooling three of my six children; grades 3rd, 10th, and 12th.

I am passionate about learning, and instilling that passion in children. I love to celebrate the mastery of a new skill, an understanding of a concept, or a completed project. Small victories build the foundation of confidence and drive that is needed to truly begin the path of success in education.

I have had numerous professional development workshops on growing a student in reading, and my students typically showed significant growth. Differentiation is a strength both as a public school and a homeschool teacher, working with ESL (English as a Second Language), EC (learning disabled), and AIG (academically and intellectually gifted). Each child needs to put different tools in their tool bag for success, and it is my job to help them build that tool bag.

I applied the common core standards in my last year of public school teaching with great success. I have lead a school-wide initiative in creating unit frameworks based on integrating the common core standards. I took courses then led the staff in applying Webb's Depth of Knowledge to the common core standards. I observed and monitored classrooms school-wide in the application of common core.

I have taught 1st through 5th grades in public school, and a majority of 2nd through 12th grades in homeschool. I worked with grades k-5 daily as an administrator. I believe in embracing where the child is as a foundation, then celebrating levels of growth as it comes.

Looking for a tutor in the Hendersonville/Asheville area? I am happy to help your child achieve his/her goals. Please contact me to see what we can do together to help your child on the path of learning.

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.

Common Core

I have had numerous professional development trainings as a teacher and an administrator on the common core for five years. I have led the staff in developing a framework for integrating common core standards while tying in Webb's Depth of Knowledge by breaking apart the standards.

Elementary (K-6th)

I was in public education for more than 17 years, receiving such awards as Teacher of the Year for my school, Teacher of the Year for my county, and Grange Teacher of the Year for my state. I mentored new teachers and teacher interns, and my students grew significantly in my classroom.

Homeschool

Aside from being in public education for more than 17 years, I am entering my third year as a homeschool teacher. I have a strong background in differentiating the needs of children successfully, making learning fun, and creating units that are engaging and rigorous.

Study Skills

I have 17 years of experience in public education. I have spent numerous hours on top of my regular hours tutoring students after school. I have strong organizational tools and have taught a variety of ways to stay organized to my students and my six children. I empower the students I work with to work smarter not harder by teaching them studying techniques to help them more successful at home and in the classroom.
