About Allen

I graduated with honors (cum laude) in Physics from Drexel University. Although I was trained as a physicist I spent most of my professional life as a nuclear engineer. I have a passion for engineering and physics, and math is the language of that passion.

Many who only teach math and science, don’t have the real world experience of using these tools. Too many stress rote memorization. This may get the student through the next test, but it provides little enlightenment, and eventually can turn students off.

I have years of experience teaching math and science at the high school, college, and post-graduate levels. I’ve always had the ability to communicate abstract ideas to students. Nothing is more rewarding than to see the look on their faces when the veil of confusion is finally lifted.

I’ve seen my students improve their grades, get good SAT scores, get accepted to college, and begin promising careers in engineering and science. I’ve also hired many young engineers out of college, so I know what’s required for them to be successful.

I work at home, so I’m flexible to meet almost any date and time, and I keep my rates low to be accessible. I’m currently tutoring students online in several states. I don’t have a rigid cancellation policy, but would appreciate a call or text.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Calculus

The subject of calculus covers a lot of material and usually requires multiple semesters. The topics include all of those in precalculus but in much greater depth. The central theme is the notion of a limit, and how it leads into the concept of derivatives and integrals. These are abstract concepts, and often difficult to grasp for many students, but they are the fundamental concepts underlying calculus and require careful, interactive presentations.

Precalculus

Precalculus introduces the student to analytic geometry and the critical notions of functions, limits, and derivatives. Many types of functions are studied; linear, quadratic, exponential, trigonometric, and others. Additional topics include vectors, polar coordinates, parametric equations, conic sections, and more. All of these require a firm grasp of algebra.

Great tutor and very patient

The good news !!! she got an A-, 92/100 on Tuesday's test. Her math teacher is pleased, saw him yesterday afternoon at PT conference. So, the current plan is working, and she now has an B overall up from a C last term in Algebra 2!!! Allen started tutoring my daughter in early January, in person for the first visit, then online for the following weeks. The online tutoring is fantastic and works
