About Me

I was a full-time teacher for 22 years and now concentrate on private tuition.During my teaching career,I have taught throughout KS1, 2 and lower KS3. I was Numeracy coordinator in my school for 12 years.

(My DBS was issued in September 2016. I am subscribed to the DBS update service, which constantly updates this certificate).

During the COVID-19 pandemic I have opened up my services to on-line tuition. I use Google Meet and Google Classroom with an interactive teaching programme,enabling students to work 'together' with me on the computer. The children seem to really enjoy this.

My Experience

I have a wide experience with nursery,KS1,KS2 and lower KS3. I have a thorough knowledge of National Curriculum requirements and testing and keep up-to-date with any new developments. I am also currently tutoring for GCSE maths,both higher and foundation levels.

In addition I offer tuition for 11+ entry for both grammar and independent schools.

The children I have worked with enjoy the lessons and have achieved good results. Each child has shown very good progress, as I monitor and assess their learning throughout.

I usually also set homework,as this will reinforce the learning from the lesson.After each lesson, I will give feedback and discuss any concerns or areas you would like to address.

I am available for adult English lessons during the day..

My Qualifications

BEd Honours in Education Lancaster University 1990

My Availability

Daytime,evenings and weekends. Often I may have filled my available spaces, but am always happy to discuss your child's learning requirements and take your contact details in case I have spaces in the future.

During school holidays,I am always available for more intensive support with individual children.

Below are the latest reviews for Gallison. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk.

I was recommended Gallison's services by a friend in Harrow. I was particularly interested in online tuition during the lockdown/school closure period.

The lessons for my son have been very beneficial in preparation for his 11+ exams.

Gallison is very organised and well prepared. During the lessons,my son enjoys working alongside his teacher . He enjoys explaining his reasoning and says that he now understands lots of new things in maths ( especially algebra and word problems ).In English/verbal he enjoys looking at harder comprehension texts with his teacher,as she always makes sure he understands the work. She has been setting a lot of homework through Google Classroom and quickly marks and returns the work with helpful comments.

I fully recommend this teacher and hope that my year 4 daughter can start lessons in September.

We are really happy with Miss.Allison who is with our daughter more than a year. Normally our daughter will show less interest with teachers if she doesn’t like them but with Allison she is so happy and comfortable.After Miss.Allison started teaching our daughter Maths And English, those are her favourite ones especially Maths ..!!!! All credits goes to Miss.Allison....!!! Thank you

Our daughter's reading and writing have improved. Her class teacher was so surprised about her beautiful handwriting and appreciated very much. Allison is always on time and will let us know any changes in advance. I have recommended Allison to my friends and would not hesitate to recommend Alison's tution for anyone looking for genuinely experienced teacher in the future as well !!!!!!
Thank you

Gallison is tutoring maths and English to my son. I find my son has improved a lot since she took over. Gallison is very well prepared for each lesson and uses very engaging materials. My son very much likes to work with her.
I would strongly recommend her service.

Really works well with my 9 year old daughter who can't be bothered to study and I see my daughter studying and laughing and playing and learning with this tutor and I can't believe it I'm so pleased she is absolutely five-star.

Allison has been with us for almost a year now and I am very happy to have such a committed teacher to help my son. She takes most of the credit for his dramatic improvement in his handwriting and positive attitude towards his work. I like the fact that she takes the initiative in providing additional materials when required to help my child when he's struggling to understand a particular concept. She knows how to create a rapport with children and the time she spends with them is always productive. I would highly recommend her and commend her organisation and dedication.
