Hello! My name is Alex. I received my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Master's degree in Applied Mathematics. I have almost 10 years of tutoring and teaching experience in a variety of subjects across many grade levels, from one-on-one tutoring to large formal college-level classes. I believe that an educator must focus not only on the material to be taught, but also the multitude of ways in which it can be taught. Students learn in a variety of methods, and I always tailor the tutoring to my students' needs. Part of my teaching style involves working with my students to strengthen their study skills, note-taking skills, and test-taking skills - standardized tests (e.g. SAT, GRE) or otherwise.
I have been involved in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) education initiatives. I believe students benefit from a multi-sensory approach to STEM education. One of the experiences I found particularly rewarding included teaching STEM subjects via the use of LEGO robotics to middle and high school students.
