Happy New Year 2021! We all know that 2020 was a difficult year, don't neglect your education! Get back on track with some tutoring through Wyzant's platform! I am a Spanish, English and Writing Teacher with 20 years of teaching experience. I have taught all levels of Spanish including the Advanced Placement Spanish Language and Culture course and the AP Spanish Literature course. I have taught English and Writing to both Spanish and English speakers. I specialize in helping students craft their college application essays. I also have extensive training as a screenwriter. I have worked as a scorer for the College Board and NYS Regents. I have been tutoring on Wyzant's platform for 5 years. I work with only a few students at a time so I can personalize each lesson. I also provide intensive preparation for students who need to take the AP Spanish Language and Culture Exam, AP Spanish Literature Exam and NYS Spanish Regents and LOTE State Exam and Spanish Teacher's qualification exam and I also prepare students for the FLACS exam.

In addition, I can assist college students who are taking Spanish classes. If you are a college student and you need help understanding your reading assignments, I can help you. I can assist you with improving your reading comprehension and your writing skills in Spanish.

I greatly enjoy watching students progress and grow, with my guidance. I can help anyone become fluent in Spanish or improve their fluency. I speak Spanish fluently and I have lived in Spain, Argentina and, the Dominican Republic.

You will learn Spanish with me and you will be able to speak it fluently! I am extremely dedicated to my students, their success is very important to me.

The more you read and the quality of what you read helps you become a better writer. I can teach you how to improve your reading and writing skills with proven exercises.

Highly Recommend

Alison has been preparing my son for the Regents/Lote Spanish exam. She is patient, kind and knows just how to prepare him in the most efficient way. She gives him helpful feedback and he continues to advance and enjoys his sessions with her. I highly recommend Alison.

Excellent Spanish Tutor - Great for NYC Regents

Alison is tutoring my son for Spanish III and preparing him for the NYC Spanish Regents. He is extremely happy with her and is doing well in class. He finds Alison to be very patient and appreciates has she has a wealth of material to help him prep for the Spanish Regents. Highly recommended!

Very helpful for AP Spanish

Ms. Alison was immensely helpful in helping me prepare for my AP Spanish Language and Culture exam. As a non-native Spanish student, I felt empathized with, rather than sympathized with, due to her bilingualism. Likewise, Ms. Alison's experience as a former AP exam grader allowed me a rare and invaluable insight on how I was doing, and more importantly, what I needed to work on. Most notably, I was able to practice the informal speaking portions of the test that I had almost no opportunity to in school. By the time of my last lesson, I felt significantly more ready to tackle the exam. Thank you, Ms. Alison! It was a pleasure. :)

Wonderful and experienced tutor

I had the pleasure of working with Allison this school year for preparing for the AP. She was very knowledgeable and helpful on all parts of the test, and gave me helpful tips for approaching each section. You won't be disappointed and she is wonderful for all your Spanish needs.

The best Spanish tutor

If you are looking for great Spanish tutor Alison is the one for you! Alison worked with my son that is in the 10 grade for several months. My son was failing Spanish and after a month of working with Alison his Spanish teacher at school called and asked what were we doing differently because she noticed a tremendous change in his scores .My son went from 55 's to 85's. He was more confident and eager to learn and complete his work.When I asked my son what he likes about Alison he said "she is kind , very patient and she doesn't give up on me even when I get the answer wrong she still encourages me ".We have stopped lessons since it's the summer but as soon as September rolls around they will continue their weekly lessons.

Extremely knowledgeable!

My son was struggling with sophomore Spanish and Alison L. brought his test scores up significantly in just 2 lessons. Her friendly, calm and patient approach focused Evan and put him at ease. Alison was always prepared and went above and beyond with each lesson building on the next. I highly and happily recommend Alison!
