Nothing short of SPECTACULAR ! (interviewing prep)

Alan and I had two sessions. Obviously, we were brand new to each other but the way he allowed me to feel comfortable with him and his teaching ways was through his humor, his stories, and his knowledgable expertise in how to shape a perfect interview answer. I knew I needed work but didn't realize how much work I needed. first session he went over my introduction and showed me why the role from a different point of view and why the company, the other time we worked on the remaining behavioral questions and motivational questions. I have been interviewing for about 8 months and never thought to get an interview tutor. This is my first time choosing a tutor on Wyzant and Alan was my first tutor. I had an interview coming up with top asset management who he's worked with before, which helped me provide some great answers together and boosted my confidence about my approach, what to say, how to sound, etc. Alan is the best tutor I have ever had on here so far. Do yourself a favor and book alan otherwise, you will miss out on an opportunity of success. BOOK ALAN.

knowledgeable and patient tutor

Alan is a very kind and patient tutor. He takes his time to explain everything to you, and does not mind to demonstrate what he is teaching you himself. My first lesson was a great success, and I feel some improvement in the way I can connect with the public more, and building my confidence.

Tremendous Help!

Alan has been a tremendous help with my interview preparation for data scientist internship positions. Throughout the numerous sessions we’ve had so far, Alan’s help and advice has allowed me to drastically enhance my behavioral and technical interviewing abilities. Alan also researched common data science interview questions and has provided great advice and insight in regards to what interviewers are looking for. I have already noticed an improvement in my overall confidence heading into these interviews and I’m looking forward to meeting with Alan going forward!

Knowledgeable tutor!

Alan is a very knowledgeable, well-organized, and patient tutor. He works with my teenage children to improve their communication skills and public speaking. Both kids enjoy his lessons and comment on his effectiveness and ability to explain how to improve.

Fantastic

Alan was fantastic. He not only helped in the mechanics of the presentation but also refining and distilling the content. We had multiple lessons and the improvement was dramatic after each lesson

Experienced and effective communicator

Alan helped me prepare for an internship interview for an Investment Bank. Without his help, I would have most likely make fun of myself. We covered most common Hirevue questions and he helped me build a story around my experience that highlights the key qualities that employers look for. Working with him helped me feel confident about my experience and how I talk about it. He also provided his perspectives on what banks are interested in hearing and recommended specific research in regards to the industry questions that could come up. I would strongly recommend Alan for preparing for job interviews but also to work on your personal story and effective communication.

Wonderful tutor

Alan is very patient and I feel that he's the secret weapon to completely ace residency interviews. He helped me gain confidence in answering questions that will surely be asked. I will definitely be using his services again.
