Fordham University (Mathermatics)
Hi I’m Al and I love math. My joy comes from bringing math alive! I can explain the same concepts to you 10 different ways; you’ll connect with one of them. I’ve been in the classroom teaching Math, Science, and a little English for over 20 years and the enjoyment of making math understandable, of opening up its beauty, has never diminished to me.
I majored in math because, ultimately, it makes sense. People don’t always make sense, but math always makes sense - maybe not right then and there, but if explained enough times, in enough different ways, It will make sense. It will be reasonable. You’ll get it. I can help you.
If I can help your son or daughter, that would be my privilege. I can coordinate with his/her classroom teacher to make sure we're working in concert. If you're a struggling college student, call me, I've been there, it wasn't fun to have nobody to call when I was stuck and had a test the next day.
I have always made myself available to my students over the phone. It's one of the perks that comes with having me as a tutor, i.e, you have access, a place to turn if you get jammed up. That's a good thing. As I mentioned, nothing is more frustrating than needing help and no one to call who can grab a pencil and talk you through the problem. I'm looking forward to your inquiry. thank you. :-) Hi I’m Al and I love math. My joy comes from bringing math alive!

We work to a good break point, not 57, 58, 59, finished. Prefer to work an hour and a half unless not possible. It's more productive. :)
We are very pleased to have found Alfred. He is very experienced and he brings life to Math. it is now up to Macy to do the rest
Al was awesome with Nicholas, and was able to finally help him understand things that he never could, before. He is looking forward to his next lesson, because he knows that his grades will improve with Al's help.
Alfred makes math easy to understand. He is able to teach you a variety of methods to solve a problem and therefore math is easier to understand. I am able to call him if I have questions between tutoring sessions. He is outstanding!
An excellent tutor. He has helped my son so much and has really formed a bond with him. He has a way of explaining Math which makes it understandable to anyone. I would highly recommend him to everyone who needs a Math tutor.
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.
I taught math for 20 years
Of all the courses I've taught, Geometry was always kind of fun. I've taught Geometry at least 5 times.
