About Allen

I am a mechanical engineer by day, but still have a passion for helping students in math and science. I graduated from Northern Illinois University with a BS in mechanical engineering and have spent the last 8 years working in that field. In a short time, I've had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects in the aerospace industry.

I supported myself through college, tutoring high school students in the Rockford area. I focused primarily on high school math, science and ACT prep. At times I had 10-15 students per week. There's no better feeling than sharing in your student's success after they grasp a subject and then perform well in the classroom. Many students I met when they were in junior high, and I was able to continue tutoring them all the way through high school (some even into college classes).

I enjoy explaining math topics which may, at first, be hard to grasp. I also try to always be available for those 'off hours' emergency questions - sometimes a 5 minute phone call can save hours of confusion.

I did well in math through school, but know the importance of having a good teacher willing to take the time to really explain the concepts. I have had the opportunity to help dozens of students in math over the years. As an engineer, I really like math because it is a powerful subject that is very objective and disciplined...if you follow the rules, you get the right answer! It just takes time to grasp the rules.

Please contact me if I can be of assistance. I am available most evenings.

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 supported myself through college through one on one tutoring of algebra students - typically 8 to 10 students per week.
