About Alan

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

I have been a private tutor since 2013, and have privately tutored all kinds of math courses, including Pre-Algebra, Algebra I & II, Geometry, Pre-calculus, Calculus I, II & III, and college level Probability & Statistics, ACT Math and SAT Math. In addition, I also have experience tutoring high school Physics, high school & college level Computer Programming, and high school through graduate level Economics,

While in college and after graduating I was employed as an assistant instructor in a private tutoring company for over half a year. I have since been employed by a number of private tutoring centers, where I have taught all levels of high school, middle school, and elementary school mathematics, as well as SAT math, for class sizes of 4-9 students. In addition to this, I have run 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.

ACT Math

I have been tutoring mathematics for standardized testing since 2013. The ACTs, like most standardized tests, while meant to measure mathematical ability, are often just a measure of how well you take tests. Luckily, we can help improve your math skills and go over the necessary strategies to take a test like the ACTs.

Computer Programming

Computer science is really just math with a bit less numbers and a bit more creativity. In addition to having taken a number of advanced computer science courses at university, I have helped numerous students pass their AP comp sci exams and work on the college computer science work. With more and more of our world becoming digital, its important to have a good foundation in computer science, and together we can be sure to meet your computer science needs.

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.


Pre-calculus is that important subject that bridges the gap between algebra and higher level mathematics. It can often be challenging for students due to the variety of new topics introduced, but the concepts are not as hard as they might seem at first glance! Whether it's trigonometric functions, conic sections, complex numbers, or matrix algebra, I can help get you up to speed in pre-calculus and get you prepared for higher level mathematics.

SAT Math

I have been tutoring mathematics for standardized testing since 2013. Though standardized testing vary in difficulty and scope, their key feature is that standardized tests don't necessarily measure mathematical aptitude, but instead measure how well you take tests. No matter what levels of mathematics you are currently at, we can make sure your test-taking abilities for math-based standardized tests are top notch.

Visual Basic

In addition to studying computer science extensively while in university, I currently work with VBA on a daily basis. VBA has simpler syntax than most computer languages, and the concepts used in coding are directly applicable to most workplaces, making it a great language to learn. Whether you want to use Excel more efficiently or want to due more back-end programming work, I can help get you up to speed and meet your specific coding needs.

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
