Qualifications & Experience

I have an Associates degree in Mathematics from Miami-Dade College, currently futhering my studies at U.M. My focus in mathematics, terms of studies, is on "Applied Math", within Chemistry and Physics. I've been tutoring in Chemistry and various math subjects for 2 years professionally, but 5 years including as community service. I teach students with the goal of allowing them to understand "why" the answer is as such. Once the student has the foundation, I then teach them other shorter method of coming to the same answer. I want you, the student, to learn. Ultimately, if you don't understand the how and why of the subject, I don't accept that I have succeeded in teaching you. I don't want to fill your head with knowledge and answers, I will give you the tools needed to conclude and think on your own and guide you along your journey for knowledge.

Philosophy kinda seemed pointless to me at first; I definitely didn't understand why my adviser told me to take this class, but thanks to Alison I now see why. She's very conversational, and she knows a lot about the history of philosophy. She had no problems answering my questions. I like her approach of talking to me and asking me what I think the answer is, and we talk about it. Alison taught me how to be as rational as possible with this course, and with that she taught me how to be rational in all of my work and studies.

I liked Alison a lot because she knows a lot about math and shared what she knew with me. She explains everything so well but kinda over explains sometimes. I passed my geometry eoc thanks to her and now I appreciate the way she teaches more. She always wants to see what I think it is or how I think it works and adds little clues here and there. I hated it at first because in class all we had was my teach showing us the way it's solved and then we copied and did examples. So I learned better with her way. Frustrating but worth it.

Alison is the the sweetest, and overall best tutor ever! I didn't really get geometry at all before her, but she patiently built my knowledge up until I finally got it! She even reviewed old Algebra stuff I needed to know to make the problems easier to so solve. I recommend her 100%

Alison came through my door telling me she's a math major, but will tutor me for free for two weeks in English. She wanted to show me she knows the basics of poetry and literature that I'd need for English 3. She let me borrow some awesome books for my AR tests too. She has some great taste and I bet you will love her as a person and tutor as much as I do.
