Why Choose Me?
Is your child already busy studying, working projects, sports, or other extra curricular activities? Who has time to waste with ineffective lessons?
Most of my students tell me that they learn a lot in a short amount of time compared to other tutors they've tried.
A common complaint I receive is that a student's previous tutor wasn't able to explain how to solve a problem very well, or had to look up how to solve a problem. And many of my students are learning advanced material that isn't covered in a typical public school. It's important to have a tutor who really has a solid mastery and can help with any problem without having to Google it.
I received my BS from UC Berkeley (3.88 GPA) and MS from Stanford University (3.74 GPA). I know what hard classes look like, and how to best study and prepare for them.
I have tutored over 2000 hours and helped over 200 students succeed in their classes. My AP Physics 1 and AP Calculus students have all at least scored a 3 on their exams (many with 4s or 5s). I've successfully helped students succeed at difficult schools like Harvard, Stanford, UC Berkeley, Cornell, Georgia Tech, and University of Pennsylvania.
I've been through the grinder. At Berkeley and Stanford, I was taking 3 or 4 technical courses each semester. My first semester was a struggle to handle courses that were moving so quickly and learning very difficult material. I know what it's like to struggle with difficult courses, and I can help your child learn from my experience.

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.

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 waste 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.
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.
