About Alison

Having recently graduated from college myself, I have plenty of experience with what Colleges and Universities look for their students to produce in their work. During the last year and a half I have had the pleasure of tutoring other undergraduate students as I finished my own degree. I love working with students one on one, and watching them grow as they develop a deeper understanding and ability in the subject matter.

My degree is in Intercultural Studies with a concentration in Linguistics. This gives me a large background to draw from while working with international students, as well as American students. My background in Linguistics gives me the ability to demonstrate how language works, which can help develop writing and other English related skills by creating a deeper understanding of the English Language. My college background also includes undergraduate levels of cultural anthropology.

I have experience as an anthropology tutor at the undergraduate level. My background includes Cultural Anthropology, Intercultural Communications, and Missions and the Church, as well as independent undergraduate research.

I have worked with high school level ESL students overseas to develop their spoken English. I have also tutored students who speak English as a second or third language to develop their skill in written English, including grammar, syntax, vocabulary, and other linguistic processes, which can also be of help to a native English speaker. My background in linguistics helps me to be able to meet students where they are, and determine which skills need the most work so that these areas can be focused on to build a better understanding of how English works. These skills can then be used as the student learns how to better communicate in written form to become a better writer.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions! I have flexible scheduling, and look forward to working with you!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
