ExperienceUniversity of Virginia graduate and experienced tutor available for tutoring, any grade, in English (reading and writing, ESL, SAT), French, SOL/SAT prep, essay writing, etc.
I've taught virtually all ages, including a year of teaching at a Montessori school in St. Petersburg, Russia.
I especially enjoy teaching French and essay writing, since those are two subjects I'm passionate about that can be difficult for students to feel excited about.

Allison was simply amazing. She was always very flexable with the times and place where we met. Allison did not assume that my daughter would come prepared with work. She always had things for my daughter to work on. My daughter is quiet and at times she can be withdrawn but she worked very well with Allison. We had another tutor befor Allison and I would have to say this was by far an amazing experience and I would recommend Allison to anyone who was looking for a French tutor.
Allison tutored our high school student this summer in French and was EXCELLENT! Not only was she fluent in the subject matter, she was flexible and creative in meeting my daughter's needs. She provided my daughter with lessons she always looked forward to. As a mother of three, I highly recommend this tutor. She is very professional with a wonderful, engaging personality. Absolutely a cut above the rest!
