Ivy League (and Real Life) Trained Math Tutor
Math is taught Completely Wrong in America!!! You see, we started Standardized Testing decades ago in an attempt to make our failing math programs better. The result was a litany of unintended consequences.
In short, good teachers became pressured to teach the material on the test over actual math. Their promotions were tied to the performance of their students. They even at times faced losing their jobs. Schools funding became tied to these tests and the pressures from school...

Wonderful Teacher
Alfred has helped my son with Calculus during a crucial time in high school. While Corona has led to limited classroom instruction for my son, Alfred has helped supplement all of the teaching he has missed. With his real world approach to math, as well as his relentless preparation for class, Alfred brings the needed structure to help struggling students focus on the daunting task of Calculus. He is patient, knowledgeable and goes beyond the normal realm of teachers just pushing through the problems as fast as they can. He forces my son to do the problems while he helps guide him down the right decision pathway. Alfred has helped improve my son’s confidence with Calculus which has in turn improved his grade. We are so thankful to have Alfred as a tutor. He deserves more than 5 stars!

Amazing Mentor and Teacher
Alfred did such an amazing job tutoring my son in AP Calculus. He explained the topics, their foundations and the why and how of problems. He was able to connect with my son on a level that made Calculus easy. He not only did a great job as a tutor, but he served as a mentor as well. He encouraged my son to be his best self and to continue pushing himself further than he imagined possible. Highly recommend him to assist any level of student.

Excellent tutor
My son has had several sessions with Alfred and he has raised his grade in his Trig/Pre-Calc class. His careful planning before the lesson, followed by patient teaching has been very beneficial and appreciated. Thank you!

Serious effort and time dedicated to students
He took the time to assess my current math level and he is great about prepping beforehand with lessons and other material. His teaching style is very straight forward and while he moves quickly he takes the time to thoroughly check for understanding and coherence of a topic. Very impressed with his tutoring!

Knowledgeable, patient tutor
Alfred seems to have a shared mission of helping to expand the knowledge of the student and doing everything he can to ensure the student remains open to the learning process. He clearly is working hard to help my daughter be successful and seems to enjoy the challenge. So far, my daughter has had two sessions with Alfred and we plan on many more in the future. Thank you Alfred!

Great teacher and session
Alfred is a great tutor, not just in his knowledge and teaching skills, but in his thoroughness to provide a good experience, his dedication to what he does and to you, and his adjustability to whatever you may throw at him. Not only is he knowledgeable in what he teaches, but he truly works to teach according to how you’re learning it with your specific teacher — a trait I have not seen in any other tutor. More importantly, he has you work out the problems and try and work through the process yourself, allowing you to retain the information, as well as being more ready to apply it to more difficult problems. He helps you not just solve problems, but truly problem-solve. I would highly recommend Alfred to be your tutor.

Great teacher and session
Takes on student education and their eventual success very seriously. Seems to adjust to varying student learning styles and pace very quickly and easily.

knowledgeable and very patient tutor
Alfred is truly exceptional at teaching. If you want to learn I would suggest him as your tutor. I have been taking Business Calculus for about 6 weeks now and couldn't even figure out the tutorials. My first hour with Alfred helped me more than any class lecture.

Great tutor!
My son had an excellent first session with Alfred. He was able to explain Trigonometry concepts to my son that he wasn’t understanding from his teacher in the classroom. We are looking forward to more sessions with Alfred and would highly recommend him as a tutor!
