I have been a successful math/SAT tutor for over 25 years in education-oriented Northern Virginia. I've learned that most students really are more able to understand their math than they themselves believe. I encourage them to think through problems on their own, assisting with my academic and emotional support to boost their self-confidence. While agreeing with my students that math can be a challenge, teaching them how to problem solve will show them the life-long benefits of critical...

I have a B.S. in Physics and an M.S. in Operations Research. I have many outstanding evaluations from students and their parents which I would be happy to share upon request.

Excellent Math Tutor!!!

He is very patient and makes precalculus, difficult material, easy to understand. He is always on time. Excellent Math Tutor!!! Highly recommended!!!

Pedro, 13 lessons with Alan

Very patient and flexible with time

I needed a tutor quickly for my daughter who was having a big Calculus test and couldn't afford to fail it. Alan took on the challenge and was very patient with her. She passed the test the very next day. Great job!!

Adrianna, 1 lesson with Alan

Very good tutor!!

Mr. Alan B. is a knowledgeable math tutor.He has been tutoring my son for a while now with the SAT. He is very professional, always on time and most important very patient with his students regardless of their level.

Christina, 18 lessons with Alan

Never again!

Alan was very nice and patient but he didn't seem to know what he was talking about. He taught me one thing on a worksheet then when we went to a different one he totally contradicted himself and said something completely different. I had to correct him several times and I'm a student that isn't very good with Calculus at all.

Lynda, 1 lesson with Alan
Tutor responded:

Lynda was having difficulty understanding how to find relative maxima and minima points given graphs of a function and it's derivative. I carefully went over the criteria for finding these points several times, but she kept going off the topic and made it difficult to explain the concept. I'm sorry she felt I didn't make it clear to her, but I never 'contradicted' myself or needed her to correct me.

Good teacher

Alan is an excellent teacher he is patient, punctual, and accommodating. I feel comfortable with him. I'll give him 5 stars.

Christina, 6 lessons with Alan

Excellent

Very friendly and patient. Taught me so much in just one hour, he is a great tutor and I would highly recommend him.

Sagrario, 3 lessons with Alan

Very helpful.

Adjusted to my needs very well and puts it in a way that anyone can understand. Very patient and teaches just at the right pace.

Margie, 5 lessons with Alan

Excellent tutor.

Alan has done a great job with my HS age son, helping him pass his precalculus class. We noticed immediate positive results. Al is very friendly and easy to reach by phone. I certainly recommend his services.
