About Bruce Alan

Private tutoring: Academic subjects, including mathematics, sciences, geography, history, and writing.

Test-prep: Techniques for raising scores on "standardized tests" such as SAT/PSAT, ACT, GRE, LSAT, MCAT, etc. (as well as Regents, AP, GED, ASVAB and Civil Service exams).

Tutoring Approach/Experience
I focus on understanding of the concepts and developing the student's ability to solve problems -- rather than tedious drill and temporary memorization.

1. I get results! (Demonstrated score improvement, passing courses, raising grades, etc.)
2. Knack for establishing good rapport with each student.
3. Focus on understanding concepts and developing skills and strategies to solve problems.
4. Also, my ability to make things understandable, in writing and in discussion.
