Hello, my name is Allison and I wanted to share a little information about myself. I was born and raised in Camp Hill, PA. I attended the Camp Hill School District. I furthered my education at Indiana University of Pennsylvania in Indiana, PA. Here I studied Mathematics in Secondary Education receiving my Bachelor's Degree in 2009. During my four years at college, I spent my free time working as a secretary for our on campus Counseling Office along with tutoring students in Mathematics and Chemistry through the Learning Enhancement Center. I also worked with students a few nights a week at a local Salvation Army - Ark of Learning Center. Here I was given the opportunity to work with students of all ages in all subject from the surrounding school districts. I was able to help students not only in completing their work for class but also providing them with a safe/quiet place to learn because many of these students came from unfortunate household environments.
After graduating college, I began my teaching career at Bermudian Springs School District in Adams County. I taught Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry to grades 9-12. A year into teaching, I began furthering my education even more by taking graduate courses at Penn State Harrisburg. Here I studied Teaching and Curriculum with a Minor in Mathematics receiving my Master's Degree in 2014. I taught for seven years (July 2009 - July 2016) before giving up my career to become a stay-at-home mom.
When teaching, I feel that my style was a lot more hands-on involvement from my students along with individual work. I liked having the students help me complete problems and then once I felt that they would succeed on their own I allowed for them to work individually. This way they could test their knowledge, skills, and understanding of the material.
So if you are struggling with math topics, don't hesitate to contact me for help because once you fall behind in math it's very hard to catch up.
Came prepared and used the right approach
Allison made my daughter work with her instead of just explaining things. It was an effective way to teach. Allison made sure that my daughter was involved during the lesson. It made the lesson less boring.Mario, 4 lessons with Allison

"Great Tutor Who Goes the Extra Mile"
Allison really cares about her students. Not only did she meet with our son twice a week, but she always made herself available for extra sessions when we needed her. She returns messages promptly and was flexible. Her grasp of advanced mathematics is tremendous, and she really communicates it in an easy-to-understand way. We were lucky to find Allison!David, 20 lessons with Allison

My daughter has met with Allison a couple of times for assistance on important assignments such as a summer math packet and prior to mid-term exams. Allison has always been able to fit her into her schedule and provided a great deal of assistance while giving my daughter the confidence to move forward on her own. Allison is very approachable and makes my daughter feel very comfortable. We would definitely continue to use her in the future.Laurie, 2 lessons with Allison
