I can help students remember important dates with timelines, important facts for tests with flash cards, and I compare parallel events from yesterday with those of today to give history and civics greater relevance for today's student.

Our son had three weeks until his SAT. Having spent a good part of a year focusing on math and lit, he hadn't spent any time on Essay prep. A couple of his teachers didn't have the time to help so having used Wyzant for Pre-Cal and Science, we thought we would look for Essay help too. We hadn't used online tutoring for Wyzant but we searched and received a response from Alison is about 10 minutes. She immediately sent a couple emails and set up a time for the next day. She not only spent an hour editing our sons Essays he had written that week for practice, but she spent an extra hour with him. She offered to work with him for free the following week, sent him a PowerPoint to help him with some techniques and gave him an assignment. They spent two hours together on a Saturday. At the conclusion, he felt very satisfied with the help he had received. We insisted on paying her for the two hours. They set up another session for next week to help get him to the finish line. Alison has been awesome for our son. Couldn't recommend her more.
