I am a recently retired high school mathematics teacher with 43 years of experience at both independent and public high schools. During that time I have taught all standard high school mathematics courses at basic, college preparatory and honors levels. I also have experience in teaching small groups of students during summer school sessions. Besides tutoring individual students I always made myself available to give individual extra help to students in my classes.

Extremely knowledgeable and experienced. Excellent tutor experience
Allen was expert in helping prepare our son for a pre-calc Honors exam. He was patient, thorough, extremely clear in his explanations. He has a wonderful calm and focused manner, providing a supportive atmosphere while clearly demonstrating rigor and expertise. I recommend him highly and without reservation. It was a superb experience and we will reach out to Allen again for math tutoring.

Effective Tutor
Allen was able to explain to my 16 year old in an hour pre-calc concepts with which she has been struggling. His manner is quiet and he is effective. Based on this session, we recommend him highly

Allen showed up on time and reviewed the current Calculus work that my son was having troubles understanding. His pace was perfect for my son to follow and he ended up staying longer than expected. It was a great experience.

My daughter is a tough candidate but he weathered the storm well. He showed up on time and was very knowledgeable about trigonometry, which is exactly what we needed.

My son has tried a few tutors on Wyzant. While some need to prepare, Allen knows his high school math and has the precise answer to all questions and is effective at teaching. I highly recommend Allen for high school math tutoring!
