Alison Tovar

Family and Student Success Coach

Ali has 15+ years experience as an Education Specialist, working with students and families to ensure student success. She believes all students have the ability to reach their goals, and specializes in implementing strategies to support each student based on unique individual needs.


I have worked with hundreds of students, parents and educators across California. My experience as a Specialist within highly ranked public schools, has allowed me to work to ensure individual students have the tools to reach their potential. Each comes with their unique story, and it is a pleasure to be part of helping them on their journey toward meeting their post-secondary goals. I find it rewarding to build connections with students and their families. I also enjoy helping to align parent and student goals, and motivating students to take an active role in achieving their goals.


Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my two lovely daughters playing board games, cooking or going on bike rides. I also spend a significant amount of time in, and near bodies of water. You can regularly find me in the pool, hot tub, or at the beach enjoying the waves.
