About Alex

I went to the University of Arizona to become a math teacher. I graduated in 2013 and I immediately got a job at Basis. I am currently in my 3rd year of teaching math at Basis. I teach 5th graders Pre-Algebra and I also teach 10th-12th Graders Linear Algebra and Number Theory. I have taught 5th graders Pre-Algebra for the past three years. I have taught Linear Algebra last year and this year and I have taught Number Theory for the first time this year to seniors. I also make sure to give my students the opportunity to come in after school two days a week for about an hour if they need any extra assistance in the concepts that we have gone over or if they need any homework help. I usually have about 10-15 students each days for my after school help. I have done student teaching for Algebra 1, and Geometry. I am usually able to help out with all elementary math concepts and most middle and high school math classes.
I have been interested in tutoring students since I was in high school. I have tutored in elementary and middle schools though a tutoring program through the U of A. I really enjoyed helping these students out and they really enjoyed meeting someone who was a college student and willing to help them out with any part of their math homework. I am able to do group tutoring or one-on-one tutoring. I also feel a satisfaction helping out students so they can feel confident in their math class and know that they will do just fine in future math classes. I look forward on helping students with their math classes.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT Math

I have gone over math comprehensive tests. During my student teaching I did some preparation on the ACT and SAT tests. It really enjoy helping students get prepared for college entrance tests.

Algebra 1

I teach 5th graders pre algebra and teach some algebra 1 topics such as solving equations, graphing, and probability.

Algebra 2

I have taught many algebra 2 concepts at basis.

Elementary Math

I really enjoy teaching college algebra to high schoolers. I teach high school students linear algebra and number theory the past two years.

Geography

I always enjoy knowing all about countries in the world. I really enjoy knowing about the US states and all of the nationalities and flags of the other countries. I have a globe and look at big cities all around the world.

Geometry

I have taught geometry courses during my student teaching four years ago. I enjoy teaching geometry concepts because of the shapes, angles, and proofs.

GMAT

I always enjoy helping anyone who likes to take tests to help them prepare for their future. I enjoy seeing people motivated to learn and keep them on track of helping them succeed. Being S teacher I always enjoy helping students learn and prepare the best towards their future.

Linear Algebra

I have taught linear algebra at basis for two straight years and going to teach it next school year.

Microsoft Excel

I have been doing so many spreadsheets and graphs in Excel for my fun or school assignments. I have enjoyed this program since I like to organize data in spreadsheets. I also use this to help organize many of my math projects.

Microsoft Word

I have used Microsoft Word for many years. Many of my co workers usually ask me question in what they can do on this program. I enjoy helping anyone out with office document program.

Prealgebra

I teach Prealgebra to 5th graders for the past three years. I really enjoy teaching these concepts. I have been teaching this at Basis with 5th graders for the past 3 years and I taught 6th grade for my first year of teaching at Basis. I have been teaching these concepts to other elementary and middle school students when I took part of a University of Arizona tutoring class. I enjoy tutoring students who are struggling with these concepts because I want to help them out with what they are struggling with and help them feel better when they understand the concepts. I know I always feel good when helping other students.

Precalculus

I have taught high school students pre calculus topics when I was doing some volunteering in schools right before I student taught. I have helped students at my work with their precalculus homework as well.

I have been a math teacher for the past four years and have taught probability to fifth graders and high schoolers. I am going to be teaching an actual probability course. I also took two probability courses in college.

SAT Math

I have been a math teacher for high school students for the past three years. I also did practice when I was a student teacher for the ACT and SAT tests. I really enjoyed helping students with their college entrance exams.
