Public Speaking allows students to develop communication, social, and presentational skills that help with leadership and career endeavors. I believe it is importance to gain confidence speaking in front of others before delving into structure. In my classes, students start with interactive games and impromptu discussion to warm them up and get them comfortable talking in front of others. Eventually they progress to delivery and structure, as well as more intermediate and advanced techniques.

I have been tutoring math for 11 years. I can break down problems step-by-step so they are much less intimidating! I focus on the thought process behind solving the problems, so students understand how to approach future questions rather than just learning one problem at a time.

Allison is VERY sweet, patient and thorough! I really enjoyed working with her. I learned SO much in just one hour!! I was hesitant about taking the lessons as I've tried lessons at my local Michael's store but didn't get much out of it. One on one with Allison was the right decision. If you are just thinking about it - DO IT!!! You won't regret it. I'm looking forward to next week's lesson with Allison :)

"I tend to have a busy schedule with my work, but Bill is accommodating and punctual. In our lessons, we go over topics I struggle with and he thinks of variations of the problem that may appear on the exam to guarantee I fully mastered the concepts. I rather be overprepared than failing and studying for the GMAT all over again."
