I am an information technology professional who also conducts tutoring during my off-hour time.

I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics and a Master's Degree in Operations Research. I have the pleasure of being a Mathematics adjunct professor, teaching college coursework in calculus/pre-calculus and Algebra, statistics, quantitative analysis and business math. I also have WyzAnt experience tutoring high school students in algebra and geometry. I am a very patient instructor with an easy going, professional demeanor. I do not feel professionally satisfied unless my students fully internalize the subject matter at hand. I do my best work in a 1:1 setting.

I am also a retired Navy Captain (O-6), new to the Houston area.

Regards and Best

The BEST Alvin was so great in helping me prepare for the Statistics Competency Exam. He clearly knows his statistics, is a very patient teacher, and is a kind and gentle person. I highly recommend Alvin for anyone who may not be so confident in their knowledge or ability to absorb statistics. He has a way of making it easy. Thank you Alvin so very much. You are the BEST. ...
