Hi! My name is Albert and I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nuclear Engineering from Purdue University, so I know what it takes to build strong math skills. I am also a veteran Surface Warfare Officer from the United States Navy, which means that from navigating warships, I have gained a deep, first-hand applied knowledge of vectors; momentum; geometry; trigonometry; and the relation between time, distance, and speed that few have experienced. It’s this combination of theoretical and practical knowledge that I have honed through over 5 years of tutoring into my signature tutoring style: 1. Assess where a student is at and how they learn best 2. Target areas of improvement with laser precision one at a time, getting to the root of students’ struggle or confusion 3. Reframe complexities in a simple way they will understand. 4. Review the concepts they have previously not mastered in light of their new understandings, and ensure a strong foundation and mastery is established by giving practice sets. 5. Build from this foundation in a step-by-step way, ensuring they fully comprehend new concepts as they advance, going back to step 1 and repeating this cycle as necessary. I am a detail-oriented and disciplined thinker who is passionate about sharing my knowledge to help students succeed while having an engaged, joyful experience.

Albert is willing to go the extra mile to structure a lesson plan that met my specific exam goals. He is very knowledgeable and accommodating.
Albert did a great job working with my high school son. Despite his quiet demeanor, after the very first lesson, he mapped the most efficient plan to get my son help, asking questions that were straight to the point. Ever since, he won’t allow my son to digress from that path set, and it has seen phenomenal results!
Albert is a great Algebra tutor. He's clear, thorough, and breaks the concepts down into smaller, easier to grasp chunks. Highly recommend!
