Alan is an incredibly patient tutor with exceptional skill in breaking down mathematical concepts. This was really important for me as I have struggled for many years with a learning disability. He helped me pin the problems to my miscalculations. Moreover, he helped me develop a broader understanding about solving college level algebraic equations so that I am not simply looking for the correct answer. He made real life analogies that left a lasting impression on me. Lastly, I found his enthusiasm for teaching and learning to be highly inspirational. I have the much needed confidence to tackle my nursing entrance exam as our sessions were a great remedy to my test anxiety. Thank you, Alan!
Allen was the best tutor I've ever hoped for! He is a true master of organic chemistry and was able to teach me things in a simple and clear way. He didn't waste my time with small talk and was patient while I tried to figure things out. He also required me to think through things instead of just telling me the answer which really solidifies the concepts being taught. I'm much better prepared for class and my test now. I hope he's still willing to tutor in a few years when my kids get into those classes!
Alan is extremely helpful with tutoring me in Chemistry! He has decades of experience in chemistry, and has taught at a collegiate level. When he explains a concept, he is able to connect one idea to another, thoroughly detail the background and derivation of the subject matter, and show the basic principles in such a clear, concise way. Before I met with Alan, I struggled with understanding the course material in AP Chemistry. Now, I have a deep and broad understanding of the subject matter at hand, thanks to Alan.
So the best chemistry tutor I've ever hired for my son. I can actually hear him talking and asking questions. And I can see a bit of enthusiasm in his eyes about chemistry and relive ! It's a huge deal for someone who absolutely dislike chemistry. I hope he can like chemistry with Alan's help!
I love working with Alan. He is very patient and explains things in real world scenarios to help you understand the material better. He makes sure you understand things before moving onto the next problem. I would definitely recommend him to other students!
Alan was very knowledgeable and went took it one step at a time. He was prompt and efficient. The session was driven to us specifically so he was very flexible.
I have been working with Alan to prepare for the MCAT and I am so glad I found him! He is incredibly knowledgable and I know he will help me feel as prepared as possible when I take the exam.
Alan provided a comprehensive overview of the TEAS exam, an overview of each section, and highlights of specific questions/problems that would be presented on the exam. He talked about some specific study techniques as well as test taking techniques. He also talked through the next steps with respect to studying, practice test taking, and analyzing problem areas for possible follow up with him. I now have a clear path with respect to preparing for the TEAS exam.
Needed to get a tutor to help my son with his Organic Chemistry, contacted Alan and he was very flexible and able to get to us quickly. My son will end up using him the whole semester to help him along with the subject. He really knows Organic Chemistry as well as a host of other subjects. Great tutor!
Alan has helped my daughter understand chemistry and I can see her confidence growing more and more. Thanks Alan for your teaching skills and genuine concern!
My girls are terrified with Geometry, however, Alan L. made them comfortable with the tutoring process. They seem to understand the concepts that were taught, and I look forward to seeing my girls become more confident in Geometry. Thanks Alan for a great first session!
Alan has been assisting our daughter with her ACT practice testing and his little bits of insight for test taking and his patience and kindness have been exactly what our daughter needed. I HIGHLY recommend Alan, even if you have to drive a little. He is knowledgeable, patient, kind, does not ridicule, has a good sense of humor and remains very focused during the session.
Alan is a wonderful tutor! Alan is very patient and knowledgeable. He makes sure that you understand what he is teaching before he moves on to the next lesson. I cannot say enough good things about Alan. Thank you very much Alan for all of your help and knowledge.
At last! Chemistry finally makes sense! Alan is great tutor for many reasons, but to make things short and sweet; Do you want to get an excellent grade in chemistry? If the answer is yes Alan will get you there!
Great tutor he really helped me understand the concepts of college chemistry. With his help my test score went up 20 points!
If you are looking for a committed and dedicated tutor look no further! Alan has tutored our son in algebra 2 and chemistry and his grades have gone up considerably. However, more important is that he is comprehending the subject matter and this will help him greatly with his final exams.
Alan is extremely patient, pleasant and flexible. He keeps the lesson and the student on track during the entire time so there is no time wasted.
I would highly recommend Alan as a tutor.
Alan did a super job helping me get ready for the TEAS test. He helped me work on and improve my weak areas. My weakest area is math. He helped me understand the different concepts, and showed me different ways and trick how to approach the equations. If you need help with getting ready for the TEAS test Alan is absolutely perfect for you.
Alan was very helpful in answering our daughter's questions on both subjects. She felt much more confident after meeting with him.
Alan has a tremendous sense of humor wrapped up in an incredibly smart mind focused on finding the challenges the students have in their learning processes. He then addresses those challenge directly in order to try to overcome the obstacles the students have in terms of the process and then proceeds with the content of the lesson. While he has not been with us long, our students that he works with have quickly come to respect Alan and have really connected to his personal attention and care to them as individuals.
On a business level Alan is always on time and courteous and as said, incredibly smart which is a very good strength to have when dealing with students or adults but thoroughly understands the challenges our students have on their level. We really like having him as part of our team of tutors and he has quickly established himself as the go to tutor for math and chemistry for our students.
My 10th grade son said he helped him a lot with his chemistry after the first meeting. He said, "he's just like a human computer"!
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.
