About Allen

I was an Honor Graduate of West Forsyth High School and a member of the National Honor Society, graduating in the top 5% of my class. I was awarded a full academic scholarship to East Carolina University, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics and a Bachelor of Arts in Information Science.

I have been a computer programmer, writing accounting software, for over 35 years. I have a ten-year-old daughter and an eight-year-old son. When my daughter was in second grade, I began helping in the classroom, tutoring students who were behind. As she went through third and fourth grade, I realized the need for tutors to help kids whose parents were not math majors navigate math as it is currently being taught - call it Common Core or new standards, whatever. It is not the way we learned math and it is not easy.

I have tutored a young lady in Math I for the past month and helped her go from a C/D on her previous benchmarks to a B. Our goal is a 4 ( highest possible is 5) on her End of Course.

Math major. 650 of 800 on math SAT. 610 of 800 on reading SAT

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.

Handwriting

I have excellent handwriting, both printing and cursive. I have helped my elementary-age children learn to write and both have excelled. I know the correct way to form letters and the correct connection between cursive letters.
