About Alan

I am an experienced tutor in mathematics and the mathematical sciences.

I have been a private tutor for over three years. I have privately tutored Pre-Algebra, Algebra I & II, Geometry, Precalculus, Calculus, High-School Physics, College Level Probability & Statistics, College Level Elementary Computer Programming, ACT Math and SAT Math.

While in college and after graduating I was employed as an assistant instructor in a private tutoring company for seven months. There I tutored all levels of High School mathematics and SAT Math. In addition to this, I instructed multiple classes of 4-6 students. Some of the classes I instructed were an SAT Math Class, a pre-k Math/English Class, and a class on Lego Robotics.

As an undergraduate I studied Mathematics, with focuses in Quantitative Economics and Operations Research. I am experienced with Calculus, Ordinary Differential Equations, Partial Differential Equations, Real Analysis, Abstract Algebra, Math Logic, and have taken up to Graduate Level Probability courses. In addition, I am well-versed in Statistics, Economics, and basic Computer Science. If you are in the Trenton area and looking for an experienced tutor with flexible hours, feel free to contact me.

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.

Differential Equations

At Rutgers University I took courses in differential equations and partial differential equations. I achieved A's in both classes, and have assisted students with more complex mathematics in the past as well.


As an undergraduate I took multiple classes in regression analysis, time series modeling, and other econometric techniques. I currently work full time as an economist where statistics and econometrics are frequently used. While econometrics and other economic forecasting techniques can be difficult, I find it is best taught by having a firm grounding in statistics and eventually working up to more advanced theories.


Geometry is often the first time a student is introduced to formal logic and proof-based arguments, making it one of the most unique mathematics courses in a student's career. But with clear explanations and simplified examples, I can help make the new concepts introduced in geometry easily understood.


I have taken courses on formal logic and mathematical logic as an undergraduate, and have tutored predicate calculus and formal logic as well. Some of my methods include helping define logic in more concrete terms for students who may have trouble with abstract concepts, as well as illustrating numerous examples of the laws of logic, types of reasoning, and inductive proofs to help students get a feel for the material. By working from the ground up, and building a students reasoning first through simple logical statements, logical connectives, and quantifiers, I am able to help my students understand difficult concepts by building on simpler ones. When I work with a student they are able to build up their own logical intuition and formalize it easily.

Great Tutor

My daughter was struggling with Geometry and the midterm exam was just a few days away. We were in a bit of a crisis. Alan was quick to respond and immediately set up tutoring sessions to help her prepare for the exam (and long term success). He was very patient and was able to really help her grasp the concepts that she was struggling with. She went into the exam very confident thanks to his
