About Alan

Hello! I am a current Columbia University Grad student looking to do some part-time tutoring. I have had previous experience teaching high school English in China, as well as coaching experience (tennis and basketball). I am a fun-loving easy going guy, with a Bachelor's in psychology. I am confident that I can provide assistance in whatever field you need help in, Whether it be English, psychology, test taking strategies or sports!

I have a TEFL certificate, taught English in China, and helped to code the SWORD writing system which is used around the country at universities to help improve the writing ability of university students.

I have plenty of experience working for top level coaches. I have worked under both Fazal Syed and Jon Glover, whom are both successful tennis coaches. Also, I have played many sports at a high level (baseball, tennis, soccer, football, racquetball) and won a state championship in baseball. Moreover, my background in psychology has helped me to understand how to motivate others.

Feel free to contact me at any time. I would love to meet new people who are interested in academics and sports!

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.

Basketball

I am a qualified coach for basketball because I have plenty of coaching experience in both basketball and tennis. In terms of coaching basketball, I coached high school players in China, teaching them fundamentals, ball skills, drills, and proper technique (for shooting, rebounding, and playing defense). Furthermore, I have a psychology degree and understand how to motivate players and instill them with the proper self confidence to succeed. Lastly, my teaching experience has given me an understanding on how to relate to learners on a individual and group level.
