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.

Aleks, 2 lessons with Alan

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.

Miriam, 1 lesson with Alan

Great Teacher!

Alan really helped me understand what causes accent and how to use skills and practice to reduce it. And he is professional and well-organized.

Emma, 2 lessons with Alan

Great tutor!

Alan helped me to prepare for my first job interview. We went through many possible questions I could be asked. He taught me how to build a style during conversation, how to control the voice and feel relaxed during an interview. Just 3 classes with Alan did help me to build confidence and shape the style. He was very patient, responsive and supportive. I would highly recommend Alan as a tutor.

Aniya, 4 lessons with Alan

Knowledgeable and Professional

Alan taught me professional ways to communicate and respond during interview process. Very helpful tips and samples to help me to see the interview from different point of view.

Jessica, 1 lesson with Alan

patient, worked with where I was at, straight shooter

I was skeptical given that he didn’t have direct experience in Psyd interviews. I was pleasantly impressed by his attention to nuance, time management, general guidance and inside knowledge for what interviewers are looking. He wasn’t looking for problems but wasn’t shy about interjecting pointers or stop rambling. I left feeling confident and hopeful for further improvement and refinement of my interview skills.

Bentzy, 2 lessons with Alan

Very knowledgeable and experienced

Great at working with interview style and answers. Really appreciate his input! Very patient and thoughtful, was prepared with sample questions and how to answer them.

Irene, 2 lessons with Alan

The Best Tutor

Alan is very patient and professional. He uses different media techniques to vary my experience so that I can stay focus longer. Moreover, the occasional use of humor makes me feel comfortable, less stressed out. His approach of teaching not only improves my english skills, but also develops my interest in english which I think is even more important for the long run.

Kexin, 6 lessons with Alan

Professional, Efficient, and Practical

Alan does not waste a single second during his session. On his interview session, I guarantee there has been no one for me comparable to him even if I have received English coaching from tens of tutors as an international professional so far. He corrects not only my tone, intonation, or accent but also my posture, gesture, and how to appear professional while talking with American professionals. The fascinating thing is that he knows how to coach even technical interviews customized for me from his long time of experience. His expertise is more than amazing. I would definitely recommend him to all kinds of internationals: students, business professionals, or even engineers & scientists!
