About Alan

I have always been told my several of my peers and even adults that I would excel in an area designed to teach people the skills they need to thrive in a particular subject. I love to teach. It has been my passion for several years. I have completed my bachelors degree at the University of California Davis, and am working on my masters program in psychology. I looking to teachthose who want to learn and succeed in a field of interest. I have been tutoring and teaching my areas of expertise for several years, whether its teaching math to children, or teaching tennis and piano lessons. I realize that people have different learning styles as well, and I am able to utilize this knowledge to teach people my fields of expertise in different ways. I teach not only to pass knowledge along to someone, but to make the experience fun and enjoyable as well so that the information is retained. I am also highly motivating to others in the areas that I teach, so no subject is ever considered "boring". Most importantly, I will bring out the best in my student and help him or her achieve their full potential.

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 have worked with many kids in algebra 1 and algebra 2. I help kids develop the study habits and skills they need to get ahead.

Elementary Math

I am certified in teaching elementary math, as well as having prior tutoring experience in the field with my prior clients.

English

English is one of my favorite subjects. I am fluent with the language, and have ease teaching the subject to younger kids.

Piano

Piano is one of my biggest passions. I have been playing the piano for about 15 years, and love everything about it. I received lessons, and am able to sightread music, play by ear, and improvise. I also like all types of piano music, and am able to play pieces ranging from classical, to modern pop.

Poker

I have read several different books, articles, and online forums on poker, discussing a wide variety of strategies, skills, and techniques for improving one's game. In addition, I have a great deal of experience with live games as well as online playing. I have played in several tournaments and home games, and know how to maximize my winnings and minimize my losses.

Tennis

My qualifications for tennis include playing throughout high school and college competitively as well as coaching several people of all ages. Whether it's to work on basic ground strokes, to footwork and serves, to volleys and overheads, I have mastered the technique and quality of the sport.
