About Allyson

I'm an experienced, patient, passionate and dedicated teacher and tutor who has 5+ years experience teaching and tutor and currently runs a bilingual elementary school program. I believe that when the teacher truly enjoys teaching, the student can then enjoy learning and discover the joys of success. I also think it very important to pay close attention to the progress of each student so that I can be sure to go at a pace and adapt my methods and materials to ensure the greatest achievement. I know that we are certainly all capable of learning anything, it's just a matter of finding the right tools and teaching methods that suit individual learning styles.

In addition, I have a lot of materials and curriculum to teach and tutor anything from early literacy/phonics to passing the TOEFL and editing and assisting with college and thesis papers.

I have the most experience in teaching and tutoring reading, reading comprehension, ESL and general English and literacy skills. Also, I have experience teaching and tutoring all ages, from early childhood (pre-K) up through adults. But here is a list of the specific subjects I am very comfortable tutoring in:

- reading/literature comprehension
- English language, ESL, ELL skills
- phonics, phonemic awareness, other early language skills
- essay and thesis writing
- analyzing literature
- test preparation
- time management/organizational skills
- beginning Spanish
- art history, and art history papers
- all paper writing
- TOEFL preparation


I have been doing this for a long time and I am comfortable tutoring in groups as well as one-on-one.

I'm available for travel around the bay area, as well as on-line tutoring.

Please feel free to email me with any questions you might have. I can give you more information about me and my qualifications. I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught and tutored pre-k through 5th grade for more than six years and currently run an elementary school ESL program, supervising teachers and curriculum for eight separate K through 5 classes. This area is my great passion - especially reading comprehension, writing and elementary literacy skills.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught and tutored ESL/ELL for 6 years and am TESOL certified with TOEFL experience. My teaching and tutoring experience extends to reading, writing, speaking, grammar and vocabulary - all parts of becoming proficient at a language.

I truly love working with ESL students and am passionate about my students' success. I believe that paying close attention to each individuals' growth and adapting lessons to individual learning styles will help your skills advance more quickly, as well as make learning fun!

Additionally, as someone who has lived in foreign countries and learned a few foreign languages myself, I understand some of the difficulties we go through doing these things and I use this experience in my teaching methods.

I have fantastic references and experience to offer.

Phonics

I have taught and tutored pre-K through 5th grade and adults ESL, TESOL, reading, phonics and literacy skills for over six years and it is a great passion of mine. I have a huge amount of curriculum stored up from past years that is relevant for a spectrum of ages and abilities. I truly love teaching phonics and literacy skills and believe that if the teacher enjoys it, the student will, too - and will therefore find all the joys in life that great reading and language skills will bring! I am extremely patient, and believe in paying close attention to the students progression to ensure I go at a speed that suits the student's needs.
