Hello,

I am here to help you improve your understanding of economics and math. I have tutored middle school, high school, and college students in microeconomics, macroeconomics, Algebra I and II, Geometry, and Calculus (HS and University) for several years. This includes preparation for quantitative sections of exams such as the GRE.

I emphasize a comprehensive, "big picture" understanding of any subject, rather than a mechanical "pass the test" type of approach, as I believe a good understanding of multiple concepts of a subject allows a student to do well in class even if they forget a detail or don't remember a specific fact. I am very patient with my students and encourage students to approach the subjects intuitively.

B.A. Economics - University of California, San Diego

Knowledgeable and very patient — Alex is everything I hoped he'd be. Serious, no nonsense and dedicated to helping you to do your best. No question is ridiculous. He gets into your mind to determine how you think and pushes you to think. I am not analytical--but I am learning how to become better and Alex challenges me. I am excited to continue working with him. ...
