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.
