Alan is an excellent Math tutor. He is tutoring my son in Geometry Honors(high school). We have just finished our second session, and are very satisfied with his knowledge and teaching methods. Alan is highly motivated to teach my son to understand and master the concepts and formulas associated with Geometry. My son appreciates his kindness, patience, and "little test taking tips" he receives from Alan. He is also giving him some pointers for his ACTs next year. He responds promptly to e-mails and phone calls also. Alan is flexible to work with my son's schedule, and to provide extra practice time for upcoming exams. The feedback he provides post sessions help me see my son's progress and what he still needs to practice.

My son has had a difficult time grasping Algebra 2 in a class setting. The one-on-one attention given by Alan is just what he needs to be successful in this class!

Alan has been a big help to my son. He is patient and stays until my son gets the concept to the math problem.

Alan has helped Tyler feel more confident about trigonometry skills. We appreciate the time and patience Alan has with Tyler. Thank you!

The lessons are interesting and aimed at my particular needs. He is prompt and shows his enthusiasm for the German language and culture.

Test Preparation:

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

I have taught Math for 28 years now(23 at the High School level), so I have many years' experience teaching Algebra 1, CP Geometry, CP Algebra 2/Trig and Statistics.

I would be able to review with you many different skills covered with the Algebra, Geometry and Trig subjects that would be good prospective problems for an ACT exam.

One thing that I know has helped students in my classes, I use some nice little charts for the trig ratios that help students remember the special right triangle relationships.

I have taught High School math for 23 years now, and have a solid background of CP Geometry (having taught that for 20 years) which prepared me well for teaching Algebra 2/Trig.

I have taught Alg 2/ Trig for 7 years now and have two sections of Alg 2/Trig this year. This would help in tutoring as I would have it tuned in real well.

My German background started in high school when my grandparents spoke German around me and I wanted to understand what they were saying. I took German for 3 years in high school, and enjoyed it so much that I continued in college and used German for my minor to go along with my business degree at the time, and then with my math degree three years later.

I have been able to travel extensively around Germany and in German-speaking countries on 8 different trips that I took to Europe over the last 25 years. I was keeping up with the language to give myself the background and qualifications to teach it should I be given the chance, which actually happened back in 2002. I was given the chance to teach German for the Spring semester in 2002. I have tried to keep up with the language by taking conversational German classes over the years, or by doing some reading. I enjoy the German language and culture and would be excited to help you learn some German.

Although I have been teaching high school math for 20 of the last 25 years, my first five years of teaching were at the middle school level. Also, I have taught Prealgebra at the high school level for the last four years.

Additionally, for the last two years I have taught Prealgebra privately as a refresher to a student as well as subject reinforcement during the school year.

I would work with your daughter to see what topics would need to be stressed, and work in some repetition of computations and formulas that would apply. I would try to find some good application problems that would help reinforce the topics as well.
