About Allison


Bio

Hello! My name is Allison and I am an experienced software engineer with a background in python, algorithms, and computation theory. I currently am employed in industry as a Senior Software Engineer and I am a 4th-year Computer Science Ph.D. student at Boston University. I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in course 18C (Mathematics with Computer Science) from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2016. My main research interests are artificial intelligence and graph theory.

Hello! My name is Allison and I am an experienced software engineer with a background in python, algorithms, and computation theory. I currently am employed in industry as a Senior Software Engineer and I am a 4th-year Computer Science Ph.D. student at Boston University. I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in course 18C (Mathematics with Computer Science) from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2016. My main research interests are artificial intelligence and graph theory.

Before joining BU, I did computational linguistics research with the Speech Communications Group at MIT’s Research Lab for Electronics. I also spent two years as an Associate Research Engineer working with artificial intelligence research in industry.

My previous teaching experience comes from my position as a computer science teaching assistant at Boston University for the first two years of my Ph.D. I have TA'd intro to computer science classes as well as advanced graduate-level courses. I'm trying out tutoring for fun and I'd love to use my skills to help you out with your classes or your career.

I work almost exclusively in Python. I studied Java, C, and HTML/CSS/javascript in school but in my current work, almost everything is in Python. I have been writing code for about a decade as a student, in academia, and in industry.

My schedule is fairly flexible, so please feel free to reach out! I can do online or offline sessions as needed.

Knowledgeable and patient

Allison was excellent. She accommodated my schedule on short notice. She is extremely knowledgeable and explained a concept in python I was having difficulty grasping. Will definitely utilize her again in the future.

Thomas, 1 lesson with Allison

smart, understanding, and kind

I needed some urgent help for a research project in python, and Allison identified the problem quickly and was able to help! She’s super knowledgeable and smart, and was open to any questions. She explains every part of the code in detail and walked me through the process in order to get the solution. Can’t recommend her enough and I’ll definitely go back if I need some more python help!

CS1301 - Python basics

She was so helpful and very patient. Really great teaching presence, voice, and tone. I was able to easily learn with her. We went over the logic behind for loops and how to iterate through API data to create our own dictionaries and lists.
