"I'm Alan. I graduated Cum Laude from Princeton University in English Literature. While at college I wrote a highly regarded play. I have worked as a journalist and published a novel. I have been a principal teaching young women for over 20 years and I know that what makes a good teacher is not just the skill to convey information but the ability to form a positive connection with the student and make the learning enjoyable. I look at tutoring as an opportunity to create a dynamic teaching experience. I try to make each lesson a conversation, with the student doing most of the speaking. Through a process of question and answer, I try to bring the student to a deeper understanding of the material. Afterward, I give exercises so that the student can continue to progress on his own.

I have a certificate in TESOL which has given me the basic skills to teach English. I work for VIP KID teaching English to Chinese students at intermediate levels. They are children who learn English at school and want to develop their English skills with fun lessons that develop conversation in the afternoon. I l work as a team with parents making sure that our goals are similar and always try to get feedback to make sure the lessons are tailored to the student's needs. I am looking forward to working with you

For older students, I have taught successfully philosophy, Jewish history, and religion to young women for many years. I look forward to working with you." less...
