About Allison

I have over 20 years of experience working in and running early learning centers. I had the opportunity to open 3 brand new centers. I was responsible for hiring, interviewing, and touring and enrolling families. I facilitated training classes for teachers at least twice a year. After college I substituted in Stafford County Public Schools and I also tutored elementary students while I was in college. I belonged to a service organization in college and we did several projects at the local elementary school. I am very organized and have a lot of patience. I enjoy working with people and teaching them new things. I enjoyed running the preschools because I was able to make sure that the schools were run well and the children got the education and care they were supposed to receive.

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 tutored many students in different subject areas. Depending on what the child is working on, we can figure out what is best to use as a learning tool for that student. I am best at spelling and reading, however, I have learned many different ways to figure out math problems. I have a few tricks to figure out math problems quickly and efficiently. I do encourage the younger children to use manipulatives and visual aids to help solve problems. I have over 20 years of experience working in and running early learning centers.

Study Skills

After college I substituted in Stafford County Public Schools and I also tutored elementary students while I was in college. Over years, I learned different study skills. Some subjects have different skills than others. I can usually assess the skills one has now and then we can add to the skill-set, or change methods in a way that works for each child. Each child is different and learns in different ways. Some things we can work on are note-taking, highlighting, repetition, being organized, reviewing, re-rereading and sometimes acting out or finding/touching what you are studying (i.e., geology or earth science).

Great tutor

Alison made instant connection with my four year old. She knows how to teach by being playful and she was very patient. Looking forward to see her more as my son's tutor.
