Alan has been tutoring my son in Geometry for the past month. After the first session, I knew Alan was going to make a difference in my sons learning and that is exactly what he has done. My son finally feels like he is understanding Geometry and his raised grade is proof of that. The teaching methodology Alan uses is multifaceted so he is able to address all styles of learners.

Alan was prompt and professional. My son is taking Algebra 1 and a solid "C" student. Other tutors, according to my son, only help him with his home work and don't really help him learn. Alan was great with asking my son questions, providing different ways to do the same problems and giving me tips and ideas to help prepare my son for future math. My son and I were very happy with Alan and will definitely continue to use him as our tutor of choice.

Alan is a great tutor. He is very patient and knowledgeable. His deep understating of math helps him explain it in a very easy to comprehend way. Couldn't be happier with my tutor.

Alan is a very knowledgeable and compasionate person. Not only does he teach he listens to the student as well. He really gave my son confidence. We look forward to working with him. Thank you Alan!

Alan is patient, kind, and willing to try several methods to get work done. He is a great person and I'm glad I found him.

Alan was very prompt on his arrival time and worked well with my son. My son needed refreshing on all the math he took in high school to take a placement test for college. Alan was able to bring his math memory skills back. My son is scheduled to take the placement test on Monday.

Alan is patient and truly wants his students to succeed. He offers not only tutoring help but advice for college prep and building a stronger foundation. My son he gained the tools to do his homework - which is exactly what we need for him to succeed.

I invited Alan to help my son's English and prepare his SAT and PSAT . He is an experienced tutor . My son and I like him.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
