Hello dear Students. My name is Alexander, and I hold a Computer Science Degree from University of California at Davis (U.C.D). I graduated in December of 1998, and it was toward the latter half and end of my education, that I began Volunteering my time as a Tutor to both College level Calculus students, as well as High School Algebra Students (via Private one-on-one) Tutoring.

Hello dear Students. My name is Alexander, and I hold a Computer Science Degree from University of California at Davis (U.C.D). I graduated in December of 1998, and it was toward the latter half and end of my education, that I began Volunteering my time as a Tutor to both College level Calculus students, as well as High School Algebra Students (via Private one-on-one) Tutoring. While at U.C.D, we had a building on campus known as "South Hall" (in those days many years ago)... and this was a place where interested tutors would go and take a qualifying exam, and had to receive a score of 70% or better, to be able to teach in the respective subject matter. So it was at this South Hall place, where I signed up, took my Qualifying exams and passed, and had students that would come with Home Work Problems from their Text Books, that they wanted me to try and clarify and help them solve. In total I had about 1 year of experience with College Students, and at least 3 years with High School and Junior High Students in Private sessions at a local library, or my place of residence. In general, I love helping people be able to see the inner workings of a Math problem, to help them feel comfortable and competent in solving those types of problems. And if I am ever unsure on how to solve a particular challenging problem (and am struggling with it myself), I not only always let my student know it's something I am not sure about, but I will also do my best to provide as much relevant information and assistance to help the student have a better chance at tackling the problem. If I encounter such problems that I am not sure about, I also always direct the student to other resources (like their teacher or online references ) to help them.
Please bear in mind that in High School, I was a top Honor Student with a G.P.A. of nearly 4.0 (which included many advanced placement and honors courses like Physics, Chemistry, English, Politics and so forth). Although mt Math was not all that particularly Advanced for my age (
