About Alan

Now that I'm retired from electrical engineering I want to help students do well in school. (I designed integrated circuits at the transistor level and used mathematics to solve design problems). I was a late bloomer, and I didn't start on an academic track until my junior year in high school. So I know what it's like to be a bit lost and behind. I can help you get on track!

I want to use my expertise in solving real-life engineering problems to help students increase their skill and understanding of PreAlgebra and Algebra I. Many students need to see real life applications of algebra and not just textbook examples. I can help you with your math assignments while building your deeper understanding. I'm flexible with my time, and can come to your home or meet you somewhere. I enjoy working with people. I offer one free session to see if we work well together. After that sessions are $40/hour. I can also work via email or Skype at a reduced rate.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Algebra 1

I used Algebra I concepts and formulas in my engineering career to solve design problems.

Algebra 2

I used Algebra 2 concepts including complex numbers to solve electrical design problems, and to estimate the reasonableness of solutions.

Prealgebra

Prealgebra is essential to be successful in Algebra 1 and 2. I am very good at showing step-by-step problem solving. I can show alternate methods to solving math problems.
