My name is Alvin. I like to teach students so they can reach their maximum potential. I am proficient in Mathematics, Science, English, Spanish, Mandarin, Anatomy, Literature and History.

I graduated from the University of Connecticut with a degree in Liberal Arts and Biology. I then went to State University of New Paltz for graduate school in Biological Sciences. I obtained my MD degree in Autonomous University of Guadalajara. I like to play basketball and chess and teach those subjects. I had a medical practice for over 20 years. I have since retired and would like to impart what I learned to willing students. As an example, 4 of my secretaries became Registered Nurses and one medical assistant became an MD.

I have a 24 hour cancellation policy but I do makeup classes.

He is very knowledgeable and very patient in teaching Mandarin Chinese to my daughter Madeline.

He taught Madeline pronunciation of the Chinese words and help her to learn writing in Chinese. He makes the lessons interesting and fun! Highly recommended!

Knowledgeable tutor

We are moving at a good pace with the new book. I had other tutors and they were too slow. I had a little knowledge of Spanish. It takes time and have a desire to learn Alvin helps me, but most of it is up to me.
