About Allen


Bio

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...

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.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

The traditional first stumbling block in Algebra I is the concept of a “variable”, or representing numbers with symbols such a letters. The next hurdle is typically signed numbers, symbolic operations on variables, and equations. These require extensive interactive examples and discussion. My general approach in a 1-on-1 tutoring environment is interactive. I can explain concepts and illustrate methods, but the student isn't learning until he or she does something with it. The student will spend much of the session solving problems under my guidance.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra II retraces much of the topics of Algebra I, but in greater depth. The manipulation of equations is expanded to include simultaneous equations and systems of equations. Exponents, logarithms, roots, and radicals are introduced, along with the new concepts of infinite sequences and series. Equations and inequalities with absolute value-terms, imaginary numbers, and logarithms are often confusing for many students and require careful explanations and examples.
Calculus,

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

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.

Knowledgeable and good teacher

Allen has helped me with multivariate calculus. I understand it better now and will feel more prepared for my college class. He is a good teacher and very knowledgeable.

Jean, 7 lessons with Allen

My daughter texted me immediately after the first session saying "Best Math Teacher Ever"

I'm so thankful! My daughter loved working with Allen and is looking forward to more! She was impressed they were able to get started so quickly. She said they had a great time too!

Meta, 9 lessons with Allen

Smart man! Very easygoing and helpful!

Helped me to understand how to do my Calculus 2 problems that I was having a very difficult time figuring out. He even explained an easier way to do a few of them! I am glad that we connected.

Sandra, 3 lessons with Allen

Excellent tutor

We had a very good experience working with Allen. In one lesson he helped my daughter raised her test grade from a 76 percent to 96 percent. We would highly recommend him.

Ryan, 3 lessons with Allen

I love Allen!

He is so warm, will explain things over, really tries to get you to understand the material. Tells you the way it is, is available last minute and focuses on each students individual needs.

Michele, 6 lessons with Allen

Knowlegeable in multivariable calculus.

Allen, was patient and helpful. His teaching style enabled me to learn the concepts and apply them. He used the whiteboard effectively and enhanced the tutoring session.

Rhonda, 3 lessons with Allen

Knowledgeable and Scheduled Lesson with Ease

Tutoring was convenient via Skye. The efforts to explain calculus was informative and will most certainly help to achieve a better understanding of the subject. Thank you!

Lisa , 1 lesson with Allen

Very Good Session

I will say that my son was completely engaged. He described his session as very good. We will go back to Allen.

Patricia, 1 lesson with Allen

Promotes a better understanding of concepts, grades going up!

Allen tutored our Pre Calc Honors student after a very rough test. My son came away with a better understanding of the concepts and a lot more confidence. He has since had 2 more sessions and test grades have gone up significantly. He is way less stressed about the class since he started tutoring. My older son had his first session on line for Calculus, and he says he now understands the material much better. All the sessions were on line and very effective. Highly Recommend!
