About Alvin

Hello,

I am an information technology professional who also conducts tutoring and teaches as an adjunct math professor during my off-hour time.

I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics and a Master's Degree in Operations Research. I have the pleasure of being a Mathematics adjunct professor, teaching college coursework in calculus/pre-calculus , Algebra I/II, probability/statistics, quantitative analysis, finite and business math.

I have substantive Wyzant experience tutoring students ages 8 - 55. I am a very patient instructor with an easy going, professional demeanor. I do not feel professionally satisfied unless my students fully internalize the subject matter at hand. I do my best work in a 1:1 setting.

I have previously taught Math courses at College of Southern Nevada and ITT Technical as well as served as an on-line adjunct with University of Phoenix and Le Cordon Bleu.

I am currently on staff to teach at various math and statistics courses locally at Marymount University, Howard Community College, and Prince Georges Community Colleges.

I am also a retired Navy Captain (O-6), returning back to the DMV after a two year stint in Houston and 10 years in Las Vegas.

Regards and Best

Alvin

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

extremely knowledgeable statistics tutor

During my daughter's first statistics tutoring session with Alvin, he was very effective in helping her hone into certain subject areas to shore up her confidence prior to a major stats exam. Alvin is also a very down to earth person and very engaging tutor.
