Hi! My name is Allison! I am a "highly qualified" certified teacher (IL) with 10 years of teaching experience in the public school system.

I have a graduate degree in education and a bachelors degree in Journalism/English. My teaching experience is very diversified, which required me to get to know the learning styles of countless individual learners, their strengths and weaknesses, and to very carefully construct a curriculum that would most benefit each specifically.
