Tutor in Phoenix, Arizona
Hello! My name is Alyson. I am currently in my first year at American University in Washington, D.C. I am pursuing a double major in Political Science and Computer Science on a Pre-law track. My diverse academic interests make me academically well-rounded. I feel confident in my abilities to help K - 12 students see greater success in their specialized coursework as well as on standardized exams. I recognize the need to adapt my tutoring style to best suit each student's unique learning style and am flexible yet results orientated.
I find tutoring elementary students to be especially rewarding and meaningful because these are formative years in a student's educational experience. I am patient and positive yet planned to ensure students receive the maximum benefit from sessions. I recognize that not all elementary students comprehend concepts in the same way and will willingly adjust my approach in presenting and practicing material as needed. I will help students to build their confidence in hopes that they will be better suited to be more independent and effective learners throughout the rest of their academic careers.
I am currently pursuing a major in Computer Science. Aside from Computer Science, I have also done well in courses such as Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. When it comes to the traditional sciences especially I recognize the need to account for how students learn best. Given my high understanding of these subjects, I can scale concepts to be applicable and comprehended to an elementary level.
I am recently out of high school and scored in the upper percentile of tests such as the ACT, SAT, SAT subject tests, and AP exams. I utilized a multitude of test preparation resources to score while on these exams and would like to act as a first-hand resource for students preparing to take standardized exams. Experience truly is the best teacher and I have no shortage of experience when it comes to high school exams that I can share to help students improve their scores.
I am currently pursuing a major in Political Science and very passionate about the field. I have taken a plethora of courses about United States history, United States government, and World politics. I can assist with both test preparation, writing for the social sciences, and helping to generally improve conceptualization.
