About Alan

I am a Trenton resident who relates to our youth extremely well and I have worked in various capacities with the youth of Trenton for more than 10 years. I have taught in the Trenton school district. I firmly believe that education is the key to improving the lives of the children and to them realizing their full potential.
As a resident of Trenton, I am able to take the everyday life experiences of the youth and relate them to their academic work. This allows the youth to see a real world connection to their academic work thereby making it more meaningful to them which results in a greater willingness to understand it. I am surrounded by the same negative influences that they are and I incorporate into mu tutoring, life lessons on how and why to avoid those influences.
As a former Corrections Officer in State maximum security prisons, I am able to incorporate personal experiences in my tutoring and I have a more "out of the box" viewpoint to education than the standard teacher. All of these experiences make me an outstanding tutor.
