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

About Allison B.

Hello! I have been tutoring for 12 years, and I have a Master's degree in Astronomy & Astrophysics. I love teaching, and I make sure to incorporate real-life examples into my math and science problems to help people develop an appreciation of the subjects. When tutoring French, I add elements of culture that I have learned from my multiple trips to France (including an entire summer in Paris!) to make the language come alive. Book a lesson with me and see how I can help you achieve today!

Crochet lessons: I have been crocheting for 17 years, and I love to get creative with it! I make garments, accessories, and homewares both from patterns and from my own imagination - I am an indie designer (I design under the name Clair de Lune Fiber Art). Whether you've never held a crochet hook before or just want to learn some new skills to add to your repertoire, I would love to help you pursue crochet as a hobby (or even a business!).

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 :)

Interactive science sessions with Allison are enjoyed by my daughter who is 10 years old, she wants me to increase the frequency of sessions with her.
