About Allen

I am a recently retired high school mathematics teacher with 43 years of experience at both independent and public high schools. During that time I have taught all standard high school mathematics courses at basic, college preparatory and honors levels. I also have experience in teaching small groups of students during summer school sessions. Besides tutoring individual students I always made myself available to give individual extra help to students in my classes.

My broad background enables me to communicate effectively with students of varying abilities. I do individual preparations for each tutoring session. During the session I want to give the student a complete understanding of the concepts covered as well as examples for the students to work through in order to gain mastery of the concepts.

The courses in which I have the strongest background are Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Precalculus and Trigonometry. I have taught and tutored these courses at college preparatory and honors levels.

I am generally available from 9 AM to 9 PM everyday, including weekends. I will travel to the student's choice of a tutoring location. MY base rate is $60.00 per hour. Lessons for small groups of students can be arranged.

I am looking forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your study of mathematics.
