I am a recently retired university professor with 37 years' teaching and research experience in organic and bio-organic chemistry at two major U. S. State universities. During the past 18 years I have served as an MCAT content contributor by providing "units" (passages + questions based on passage content) to the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), the agency that produces and administers MCAT. I currently tutor students worldwide by using interactive Skype and Google Hangouts with screen sharing. The screen sharing feature permits chemical structures, formulas and reaction mechanisms to be drawn onscreen in real time during tutorial sessions. All visual materials produced in this manner are saved as jpg files and sent to students as email attachments at the conclusion of each tutorial session. In addition to one-on-one tutoring, Students are provided with study and review materials, practice problems and sample exam questions that I know from experience are likely to ...

He will challenge you and make you think, but you really do learn and understand. Wish I'd had him for orgo the first time around!
Rachel K.
Dr. Alan was super helpful and patient. He knows organic chemistry very well and can explain the material in a way that anyone can understand.
Doreen C.
I was getting really discouraged with MCAT studying and practice, so I decided to contact Dr. Alan.
He is extremely knowledgeable in general chemistry, organic chemistry and biochem. He also knows how the MCAT exam is designed and written. He is a great source of information.
Furthermore, he prioritizes making sure his students understand why certain answers are wrong or right. He is very detail oriented and really wants his students to understand the material.
Dr. Alan tutored me online, and shared his screen with me while working out chemical reactions and problems. He then saved all of that work and emailed it to me, so I could refer to it later.
Dr. Alan definitely tries to provide his students with the resources to succeed. He sends his students extra practice as well as power points and tutorials on information that he knows is tested on the MCAT.
I am very glad I contacted Dr. Alan, because he is a very dedicated caring teacher, and he really wants his students to do well. I would recommend him to anyone who needs some guidance on the MCAT!

Our lives revolve around communication, yet we’re rarely given the necessary tools to speak with ease, clarity, and impact. I teach a unique system of techniques to help executives, academics, and other professionals uncover their natural ability to captivate an audience.

I help clients tell engaging stories, develop a confident physical presence, improve vocal clarity and diction, and speak from the heart. Clients uses these skills in all areas of life: from high stakes presentations, to job interviews, to dating.

Clients can choose to work short-term to prepare for a specific speech or interview, for a few months to address a particular habit or skill, or indefinitely; there are always new skills to uncover.

A truly gifted instructor. I came to Jennie with zero acting experience. She was able to patiently and carefully guide me to focus on my scene and most importantly how to RELAX and let the scene flow. Her knowledge of acting techniques and tips is unparalleled. She teaches you how to look at the scene as a whole and truly understand what your character is feeling. I highly recommend Jennie to anyone who is interested in learning more about acting.

Speech is about creating clarity in your use of language. It isn't necessarily about getting "rid" of an accent (unless you really want to for tv broadcasting or a role).

Public speaking is about communicating clearly, storytelling, honesty and persuasion.

I can help with both. :-)

Public speaking has become essential in the workplace. Anyone who succeeds in their work will definitely be asked to share their insights. However, you'd be surprised how many are terrified to speak in public! How many promotions have been lost or careers not advanced because of lack of this skill set. It is not effectively taught in school, not even at the MBA level! I am an accomplished public speaker who gives numerous keynotes, lectures, and training sessions each year for people of all ages!
