About Alan


Bio

I am a retired Bell Labs researcher who really enjoys teaching. I have taught courses both at Bell Labs and at Rutgers. I've taught both groups of secretaries and PhDs. I've tutored high school and college students both in person and on the telephone when distance prevented a meeting. I believe that the best way to learn a subject is to first have a simple explanation of the overall idea, then see and example and get to the formal definitions or proofs last.
