When it comes to tutors in the humanities, it doesn’t get much better than Allyson. Which is why we had to choose her for our February Tutor of the Month. Allyson has an extensive background in English and education. She has a Bachelor’s degree in English from Wheaton College, a Master’s and PhD in English from Indiana University, and a Special Education certification from UVA.
She has over 25 years of teaching and tutoring experience, working with students in primary school to the college level. Allyson has worked with Fairfax County Public Schools, St. Mary’s College, and Georgetown University. With all this experience, Allyson loves working one-on-one with students through Educational Connections. She said, “it’s great and fun to be working with all age groups and grades.” Allyson has been with Educational Connections since September and has received glowing feedback from her parents and students. One mom said, “I am thrilled to have Allyson working with my son. It’s great to have a tutor in place who really cares about my child’s success.”
When she’s not tutoring, Allyson is a voracious reader and a fan of traveling, cooking, and scrapbooking. Allyson also enjoys spending time with her husband and her three children.
