Hi, my name is Allison! I'm a native English speaker, TEFL-certified, and graduated from Hunter College with a BA in Creative Writing in 2016. I've always had a passion for literature, writing, and the English language, so it's no surprise that I've been tutoring for almost four years now. I also began teaching English at the college level in the fall of 2016.

My experience as a tutor has taught me to evaluate students’ individual needs and tailor my approach accordingly. As a result, my students achieve noticeable improvement by the end of the semester, and I’ve had many students request me personally for tutoring services.

As an adjunct lecturer, I teach students how to develop their expository writing and rhetorical analysis skills through writing workshops and discussions of literature. Through this work, I’ve seen my students embrace their own literary voices and begin to develop what I hope will be a life-long love of writing.
