About Alan

During college, I changed my major several times, taking numerous classes for each one to determine what I wanted to do with my life. I experimented with Political Science for two years, in which I took classes in criminology, speech, and history. My next year of college was spent in English and Writing, where I focused on the obvious, as well as classes in psychology. The last few years of my college experience, where I ended up graduating with a Bachelor’s in Finance, were based around all of the science and math classes that Ohio Dominican University had to offer. Before, during, and after my college career I worked through multiple jobs in several states in which I was promoted into management positions with each company. Within these companies I was responsible for interviewing and training countless employees to both fulfill their positions and learn how to deal with customers and situations in the workplace. Since I have been back in Indiana, I have been tutoring my little brother (who is a senior in high school) and have helped him to improve significantly in each subject. School has always come naturally to me; and while I haven’t always given my full potential in my own studies, I have learned how to train and work with others to meet theirs.
My teaching style is one of friendly leadership. Working through problems or lessons with the student by leading them through it, then working it with them side by side while explaining the details helps them achieve the accomplishment of learning without making them feel as if they were just instructed how to do it. Helping a student learn is more than just teaching them a lesson in math, science, or English; it’s about being someone that they can look up to as a role model, being someone that they can learn from in more than just an academic manner, and being someone who is there for them when they need something. Personally, I think students of all ages and academic levels need to be coached and pushed to achieve their full potential; not only does a student need to meet the requirements of a class or job, they need to push themselves to pass that class or fulfill that job to the best of their ability. Once a student realizes and strives to accomplish this goal, it will open the door to be rewarded with better grades, promotions, and achievements in life; helping a student reach his/her potential is my goal.
