Bruce Alan's Experience

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


EXCELLENCE
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.

Bruce Alan's resume

EXPERIENCE:
30+ years college teaching, plus private tutoring in academic subjects and "test-prep" techniques. Also taught and/or managed many employee-training programs. Developed curricula for training programs, civil-service exam preparation courses, etc. as well as for after-school science clubs and summer camps.

My professional career was primarily in software development and management, at Brookhaven National Lab (BNL), Grumman, Robotic Vision, American Science, and other Long Island companies, and as a software consultant and website developer.

I am also a professional writer, with thousands of pages published, and I currently host two weekly radio shows on a local radio station. Since my early retirement from BNL in 1999, I have increased my teaching and tutoring, as well as my professional writing and radio-broadcasting activities.
