With all the changes going on to the high school math curriculum and Regents exams, one of the most important things you need to find in a tutor is someone who is totally conversant with all these changes and is experienced In the current high school classroom.

With all the changes going on to the high school math curriculum and Regents exams, one of the most important things you need to find in a tutor is someone who is totally conversant with all these changes and is experienced In the current high school classroom.

I am a recently retired high school math teacher from a large comprehensive Queens High School. I have taught high school mathematics for 14 years. The 2 major Courses I have taught include Common Core Algebra 1 and Common Core Geometry.In addition to teaching these classes, I have been involved with writing the Common Core Curriculum and corresponding lessons for my school, developing shared assessments and grading regents exams. Most of my lessons are on Powerpoint which I will be more than happy to share with my students.

While at my current school I was the Internship Coordinator and was a recipient of the Above and Beyond Award given by WABC TV in 2007.

I have also taught at Queensboro Community College for 8 years in their Kids College and 21st Century Learning Program. At Queensboro I have taught courses in: Algebra 1, Pre-Algebra, Specialized High School Test Prep, COOP Test Prep, HSST Test Prep, Hunter High School Test Prep and Math SAT Test Prep.

I also taught a course at Queensboro CC for the 21st Century Learning Centers in Introduction to College Algebra.

I have worked for several tutoring organizations and privately tutored high school students on a one to one basis. This is my 6th year with WyzAnt where I have tutored over 1100 hours. I worked last year with 8 different students in Algebra 1 CC and Geometry and they all passed the State Regents Exams.

I feel that my strengths are in communicating key math concepts, and an understanding of the specifics of both the curriculum and on the appropriate standardized tests. Additional strengths include making it relevant to outside interests especially business applications, and establishing a good working relationship with my students.

My educational background includes a BA in Economics from Queens College, a Master's in Business Administration from the University of Massachusetts, a Master's in Math Education from Adelphi University I have also completed the certificate program to be a School Administrators at CW Post.

Prior to becoming a teacher, I was a Wall Street Vice President for some major financial services organizations.

I am willing to travel to your home or to a library for tutoring. I am also comfortable doing online tutoring and could combine that with in person tutoring.

Patient tutor.

Since it is the end of the year, Allen presented us with a course of action that will allow my daughter to finish the school year strong. I believe that Allen will help my daughter pass her final exam.

Jimmy, 32 lessons with Allen

Very Knowledgeable, and focused.

Structured works well with student. Communicates well so the student understands their mistakes. Assess students weakness, helps them review those weaknesses. I would highly recommend.

Steve, 4 lessons with Allen

Great Tutor!

Allen is very kind and intelligent! He was very easy to schedule on short notice and very flexible! He also called to discuss things and introduce himself before the session. I think he's a great tutor! Thank you Allen!!

Marie, 1 lesson with Allen

Very knowledgeable and patient

Such a great tutor! Highly recommend! Knew geometry and exactly how to teach it so that my daughter understood! Very impressed with how he taught and his patience.

Joanne, 3 lessons with Allen

Focused and helpful

Allen helped review Algebra 2/Tri for regents test. He went over a great deal of material in the short amount of time. Not too much, but at a pace which was helpful and thorough.

Benjamin, 3 lessons with Allen

Great first session!

After my son's first session, Allen was able to determine strengths and weaknesses. We now know the focus points for future sessions.

Tamiko, 4 lessons with Allen

Excellent and well informed

Understands the new Common Core curriculum. Excellent with kids. Taught both of my sons for math regents. Highly recommended.

Robert, 6 lessons with Allen

Patient tutor

Allen has been very helpful. He has been very patient and explained what I do not know. He makes me try to answer before showing me the way. His experience as a teacher must be why he is so great. Too bad not every student has a tutor with years of teaching experience.

Andrea, 3 lessons with Allen

He knows what he's talking about

Allen knows his subject very well. He is also honest, in his approach. I plan on using him in the future.
