Hello! My name is Alec, and I am a returned Peace Corps Volunteer, experienced tutor, and educator. As a Peace Corps Volunteer, I taught English, American Studies, British Studies, conversation courses, and debate courses at a variety of levels including university classes and adult education classes.
Most recently, I just graduated from law school at the University of Iowa College of Law and am now living here in Miami. Presently, I have a lot of free time, which makes it easier for me to schedule tutoring times that work best for you!
Beyond the traditional education/language tutoring that I'm qualified for, I am also qualified to tutor/coach/instruct in a variety of sports and fitness areas.
I have over a decade of experience using Adobe InDesign as a graphic designer. I professionally used InDesign to create advertising materials, newsletters, books, etc. I have also spent a great deal of time helping others to become comfortable using Adobe InDesign for their own projects. I know the product well, and I can help you to know it, too.
I used to volunteer as an assistant coach in recreational/youth baseball leagues. In those leagues, I helped kids/players with batting and fielding practice. I have experience helping with infield and outfield practice.
I played basketball on school teams up until high school. After high school, I played in recreational leagues (both in and out of college). I know a lot of plays, and I know how to teach others to use proper form/technique.
I studied math through precalculus in high school, and I took multiple math courses in college as well. I have tutored both adults and children in mathematics. Realizing that math is not easy for a lot of people, I am both comfortable and patient as a tutor.
I have my B.A. and my M.A. in English. I have tutored both native and non-native English speakers, and I have experience working with a range of ages (from children to adults).
A part of my job as a Peace Corps volunteer was to teach English as a second (or even third or fourth) language. I have several years of experience teaching and tutoring others in English, and it is something that I enjoy. I have worked with children and adults.
I studied French in college for two years, and I lived in a French speaking country for another two years.
I am a certified instructor. I also have a 2nd degree black belt in Taekwon-do, a 1st degree black belt in Hapkido and Kenpo, and several years of experience in Genwakai, Boxing and Kickboxing. I have studied various other styles along the way and was also a cardio-kickboxing instructor for several years.
I played varsity soccer through high school, and continued to play on club teams after that. I have assisted in basic skills training and plays as well.
