About Allen


Bio

I graduated from UC Berkeley in Electrical Engineering with high honors (top 10% of all graduating engineering students), and a minor in Mathematics. I also have a Masters degree from Stanford University. I've always been an excellent student; I was always able to understand very difficult math, science, and engineering concepts. I volunteered as a tutor at Berkeley and I have been a volunteer tutor for several years. I've been professionally tutoring for over 1 year with over 400 hours of...

I graduated from UC Berkeley in Electrical Engineering with high honors (top 10% of all graduating engineering students), and a minor in Mathematics. I also have a Masters degree from Stanford University. I've always been an excellent student; I was always able to understand very difficult math, science, and engineering concepts. I volunteered as a tutor at Berkeley and I have been a volunteer tutor for several years. I've been professionally tutoring for over 1 year with over 400 hours of tutoring hours.

Math is fun! I think the way math is usually taught is really boring, but it shouldn't be. I try to incorporate interesting problems or puzzles to help motivate why we want to do certain types of math. I do not generally "teach to the test" or memorize formulas, as I think those things are very short-term gains. Like riding a bike, math knowledge can stay with you for your whole life as long as it's built upon a solid foundation. My focus is teaching fundamentals and connecting what the math actually means with the equations.

In addition to my minor in math, I always was a strong math student. I easily scored a 5 on my AP Calculus AB exam, I had A's in differential equations and Calculus II when I was a senior in high school, and even had an A+ in multi-variable Calculus at UC Berkeley.

Please reach out if you have any questions. I'm happy to offer advice, even if it means going with another tutor or a different service.

Very knowledgeable

Allen and I went over derivatives. My foundation in algebra isn't strong, so we also did a brief review on basic algebra. He is very knowledge and surprisingly patient.

Jazmine, 1 lesson with Allen

Knowledgeable and patient

Allen helped me with statistics which is a math class based on half formulas and half interpretive English. He was very helpful and patient. He would take the time to draw pictures that would help me grasp concepts. He would also help me understand the answer. Working with some of the other tutors they would make you work harder then them and make you guess at an answer till you figured it out on your own, which would wast time and energy. Instead of doing that Allen understood when it was appropriate to take time for that and when to teach me how to get the answer. He did make me answer questions with the right amount of balance, knowing when not to make me guess. I will contact Allen again in the future. You should too.
