About Alan

*Average composite score increase of my past students -> +4!

Hello, I am a sophomore at Princeton University. I scored a perfect 36 on the ACT and in the 99th percentile on the SAT. I scored a 33 the first time I took the ACT, and after a few months of practice, I retook the test and got a 36--I know what it takes to up your score, wherever you are on the scoring spectrum. As a recent test taker, I have lots of fresh experience with these standardized tests, which many tutors lack.

I am also a Class A United States Chess Federation player. My USCF rating is 1977. I was a two-time Ohio runner-up in high school and a national runner-up in middle school. I have experience teaching chess at Progress With Chess summer camps and after school programs. My time with Progress With Chess involved teaching students ranging from elementary to high school age, beginners to tournament-level players. 2014 World Amateur Team U-2100 Champion.

Very knowledgeable... a great help. — Alan helped give direction to my son as he prepared to take the ACT. He focused on areas which were specific to his individual needs, which was much more beneficial than a group class. I would highly recommend both this approach, and Alan. ...
