Through Wyzant's tutoring app you can take a Spanish, English or Writing lesson with me online. I am a Spanish, English and Writing Teacher with 20 years of teaching experience. I have taught all levels of Spanish including the Advanced Placement Spanish Language and Culture course and the AP Spanish Literature course. I have taught English and Writing to both Spanish and English speakers. I specialize in helping students craft their college application essays. I can help you improve you...
My son, halfway through the school year, realized that his curriculum was several months behind on covering material for AP Spanish literature. From the moment we talked to Alison, it was clear that she was experienced, knew how to work with hardworking students, and would be able to get my son up to speed so that he would perform well on the exam. She is patient and flexible, and she has thorough knowledge of both the content of the stories and poems covered in the class, but also provides valuable insights that a typical AP Spanish Literature teacher may not have. This was evident by my son's ability to participate significantly more during his classes, and if it were not for Alison, he would be struggling in the course. Her experience with the exam makes me confident to say that if you want your child to do well on the AP Spanish Literature exam, she's your best bet.

I had the pleasure of working with Allison this school year for preparing for the AP. She was very knowledgeable and helpful on all parts of the test, and gave me helpful tips for approaching each section. You won't be disappointed and she is wonderful for all your Spanish needs.

Alison has been preparing my son for the Regents/Lote Spanish exam. She is patient, kind and knows just how to prepare him in the most efficient way. She gives him helpful feedback and he continues to advance and enjoys his sessions with her. I highly recommend Alison.

Alison is tutoring my son for Spanish III and preparing him for the NYC Spanish Regents. He is extremely happy with her and is doing well in class. He finds Alison to be very patient and appreciates has she has a wealth of material to help him prep for the Spanish Regents. Highly recommended!

Ms. Alison was immensely helpful in helping me prepare for my AP Spanish Language and Culture exam. As a non-native Spanish student, I felt empathized with, rather than sympathized with, due to her bilingualism. Likewise, Ms. Alison's experience as a former AP exam grader allowed me a rare and invaluable insight on how I was doing, and more importantly, what I needed to work on. Most notably, I was able to practice the informal speaking portions of the test that I had almost no opportunity to in school. By the time of my last lesson, I felt significantly more ready to tackle the exam. Thank you, Ms. Alison! It was a pleasure. :)

If you are looking for great Spanish tutor Alison is the one for you! Alison worked with my son that is in the 10 grade for several months. My son was failing Spanish and after a month of working with Alison his Spanish teacher at school called and asked what were we doing differently because she noticed a tremendous change in his scores .My son went from 55 's to 85's. He was more confident and eager to learn and complete his work.When I asked my son what he likes about Alison he said "she is kind , very patient and she doesn't give up on me even when I get the answer wrong she still encourages me ".We have stopped lessons since it's the summer but as soon as September rolls around they will continue their weekly lessons.

My son was struggling with sophomore Spanish and Alison L. brought his test scores up significantly in just 2 lessons. Her friendly, calm and patient approach focused Evan and put him at ease. Alison was always prepared and went above and beyond with each lesson building on the next. I highly and happily recommend Alison!
