I am currently a high school math teacher in a large comprehensive Queens High School. I have been teaching high school mathematics for 11 years. Courses I have taught include Integrated Algebra , the new Common Core Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2 and Trigonometry, and Financial Algebra. Besides teaching these courses I have been involved with writing the new Common Core Curriculum and corresponding lessons, and developing shared assesments. Most of my lessons are on Powerpoint which I will be more than happy to share with my students.
While at my current school I was the Internship Coordinator and was a recipient of the Above and Beyond Award given by WABC TV in 2007.
I have also been teaching at Queensboro Community College for 6 years in their Kids College and 21st Century Learning Program. At Queensboro I have taught the following regular courses and test prep courses: Algebra 1, Pre-Algebra, Specialized High School Test Prep, COOP Test Prep, HSST Test Prep, Hunter High School Test Prep and Math SAT Test Prep.
Last year I taught a course at Queensboro CC for the 21st Century Learning Centers in Introduction to College Algebra.
I have worked for several tutoring organizations and privately tutored high school students on a one to one basis. This is my 3rd year with WyzAnt and am currently working with 6 different students in Pre Algebra, Algebra 1, Geometry and Trig.
I feel that my strengths are in communicating key math concepts, and an understanding of the specifics of both the curriculum and on the appropriate standardized tests. Additional strengths include making it relevant to outside interests especially business applications, and establishing a good working relationship with my students.
My educational background includes a BA in Economics from Queens College, a Master's in Business Administration from the University of Masachusetts, and a Master's in Math Education from Adelphi University. I have also completed the certificate program to be a School Administrators at CW Post.
Prior to becoming a teacher, I was a Wall Street Vice President for some major financial services organizations.
I am willing to travel to your home or to a library for tutoring. I am also comfortable doing online tutoring and could combine that with in person tutoring.

I would highly Recommend Mr. Allen's: 'Full-day Tune-up' offer to anyone wanting to Play Catch-up. My 'Freshman' Son learned More in 5-hrs than in (5wks=50hrs) of Summer-School math! Mr. Allen K. definitely lives up to his Credentials. Learning with him means non-stop action! He kept it interesting throughout & wasted No Time. Lessons were Customized based on my Son's accessed areas of weakness. Needless to say, "you'll get your Money$ Worth!" He's extremely Knowledgeable & Serious, yet Friendly enough to appeal to any student. He Explains Topics in various ways, till they're Understood. His Teaching-style simplifies the meaning of 'Learning': to the Lowest Common Denominator. 10*Q = Mr. K
Mr. Allen K. is a very good tutor. In only a few days, he helped my son prepare for the geometry section of his Regents. I would give Allen 5 stars.
After 3 lessons my son said I really liked working with Mr. K. Wow! As a parent that made me very happy. If your child likes his/her tutor that's half the battle. He is calm, patient, and knowledgeable.
Anyone in desperate need of a tutor for their high school student, I highly recommend Mr. K. He is very patient and knows his stuff. Without him my daughter would never of passed her algebra final and math regent. Thank you so very much for your help.
Allen is wonderful! My son's last exams in math have improved greatly since he has tutored him. He brings his own work and knows his subject well. He is a true teacher.
Allen got right to work diagnosing and focusing on my son's particular needs for the math portion of the SHSAT. He provided him with a plan to make the most of the few weeks we have til the test. Had I realized how deficient my child's regular math program had left him for this type of exam I would have hired him much earlier!
Allen K. reviews all the material my daughter needs go over for her geometry test. He is able to catch where she makes her mistakes and go over them till she knows it. thank you Allen.
Allen K has worked wonders with my daughter. He is teaching her the math, but most importantly he is teaching her to think. He is definitely a keeper. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of a tutor.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
