Learning Outside the Box is run by Allison Brown. She has more than 10 years of experience in education and tutoring. She has worked with students ranging from kindergarten through the collegiate and graduate levels, and with all types of learners and abilities. She specializes in working with students who haven’t been served well by traditional educational systems: those who need assistance or extension the schools can’t or won’t provide.
At the heart of my teaching is love: I want students to love learning, and to discover what brings them joy. I strongly believe that all learners can be successful, and that they only need to discover what works for them to find a path to that success. My teaching is student-centered, and takes a whole child (or person) and inquiry-based approach. Working with small groups or individuals allows me to focus on each learner's strengths, needs, and interests and to create an instructional plan that best serves each student. I build relationships and connection with students in order to understand them as people, and thus better serve them as learners.
