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 helpful linear algebra tutor!

Knowledgeable, punctual tutor who goes above and beyond to help you with your work! He helped extensively with various problems and talked through the concepts.

Chris, 4 lessons with Allen

Allen is awesome!

We have used Allen twice now to help my daughter with AP Stats and he is fantastic! He is so patient and really talks through the problems with my daughter. He makes sure she understands before moving on and even made some practices problems for an upcoming test. We will continue to use him throughout the year!

Dawn, 3 lessons with Allen

Knowledgeable tutor, teaches and answers questions of student superbly

Studied for my math probability exam and he was a huge help! We went over three chapters of lecture slides and got them all done at a fantastic rate of time!

Fantastic Review

My son feels more confident and prepared for his Calculus midterm which is fast approaching. Allen explained some of the concepts that he struggled with and now he feels he has a strong foundation for the rigor of his class. Thank you, Allen!

Lisa, 2 lessons with Allen

Great AP Calc BC lesson

My daughter just had her first lesson with Allen. He is knowledgeable and experienced. He was able to explain the concepts in a simple way that was easy to understand. Looking forward the next lessons.

Leila, 2 lessons with Allen

Super tutor in CS & Calculus

He really teaches you how to think through a problem vs showing you how to do it. He also connected my confusion on some of the topics. Most importantly, he is excellent communicator.

Sandra, 17 lessons with Allen

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

Excellent Differential Equations Tutor

Allen has guided me through countless differential equation problems ranging in topics including higher order differential equations, Laplace transforms, and Inverse Laplace transforms using several different approaches including undermined coefficients and variation of parameters. He clearly is very knowledgeable on the subject, patient, and provides thorough explanations.

Salma, 12 lessons with Allen

Couldn't ask for a better tutor!

Knowledgeable, dedicated, caring, going beyond to help his students. My daughter is very thankful for his guidance. Many thanks to help my daughter, Allen <3 !
