About Alf

Hey there. My name is Alf, and I'm a math tutor. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in mathematics at Pomona College in the 1990s, but then turned my attention to non-mathematical pursuits. In the years since then, I have done tutoring in math off and on. I've done the most tutoring with adult GED students in math, science, and other subjects; this would probably be my best fit. However, I'm also comfortable working with high school students in math classes up until around the Calculus I range.

With each student I've worked with, my goal has been the same: to work myself out of a job. It's my goal to get a student through their current and specific difficulties. Also, I recognize that things won't necessarily be "smooth sailing" simply because a student has gotten beyond the current sticking spot. So I attempt to help a student search for and identify potential problem spots, and find ways to get around any obstacles that might arise later on.

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 earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Pomona College in the field of mathematics. I began tutoring GED students in 2002 as a volunteer, and have since gone on to tutor math students of all ages, from basic math through calculus.

Tremendous help!

I was struggling with the math course that I was in and needed some last minute help before my final. Alf took the time to break down the equations so that I understood the process and felt more confident and prepared for the exam. Thanks Alf!
