University of California, Irvine (ICS)
I've been working as a private tutor for over three years now and in that time, I've found it to be the most rewarding job I've ever had. Watching students learn and truly understand a concept makes everything worth it. I graduated from the University of California, Irvine with a degree in Information and Computer Science, and I'm pursuing a higher degree in either Physics or Math (still haven't decided). As a result, tutoring work fits into my lifestyle and my schedule incredibly.
I am definitely most qualified to teach math subjects (through calculus/differential equations), but I can also tutor high-school and introductory calculus based college Physics and Chemistry courses. Also, any sort of standardized testing is something we can definitely work together on!
Though my schedule is fairly flexible, I have a 36-hour cancellation policy; if we can reschedule, I'm often open to it and won't charge for the missed session unless I had to turn down another client for the same time, which doesn't happen too often.
I will meet you in your home, at your school, your local Starbucks, etc.
I look forward to working with you and ensuring your academic success!

If you're very local (close to Laguna Woods), I may be willing to bump my rate down. If you're very far, I might bump my rate up and/or require at least a two hour session.
Alex has been tudoring my son in Physics since the beginning of the Fall semester and my son received an A! My son has enjoyed his tudoring sessions also. Without Alex is would have been a very trying semester. Alex is continuing this semester and I am sure we will have great results. Thank you Alex.
My freshman daughter met with Alexander in preparation for her Algebra 2 final and came away feeling like she had a much better grasp of the concepts. She said "he didn't just explain how to do it but also why so now I really get it." We will definitely be booking more time with Alexander in the future.
He definitely knows what he's doing! I was finally able to grasp the more difficult concepts of Calculus and feel more confident in answering problems.
My son said his two hour session was more productive and helpful than the entire first semester of his class. Alex did a great job breaking down concepts and working through examples.
Great Job Alexander! Thanks for all the help with Chris. I will let you know if he passes his final.
Alexander is professional yet enjoyable. He is very quick to answer any questions that may arise and usually has many great tips and tricks that make his fee very worth the cost. 10/10.
Alex drove all the way out from Lake Forest to tutor me in Calculus. He was very patient and very knowledgeable on all the topics that I was having trouble with it. With his help I was able to overcome some hurdles that I couldn't get over before and give me confidence in Calculus that I never had before.
Alex just started for us. My kids both REALLY enjoyed their sessions and both said they learned a lot in only 1 hour. Thanks Alex!!
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.
I have a degree in Information and Computer Science from UCI, and took a full year of C++, including data structures.
I took Calculus I and II through Cal State Fullerton during my senior year in High School and received an A in both courses. About six years later, I took Calculus III and Linear Differential Equations at Irvine Valley College and received an A in both courses. I'm currently working through Stewart's Calculus at my own pace in an attempt to truly internalize the material.
Though I have no formal chess education, my father (a master of correspondence chess) taught me the game growing up. I have worked through numerous workbooks studying the game, and have played in a number of tournaments as well.
I have played drums and other percussion instruments since I was seven years old. I have held jobs at multiple places as a weekly drummer, and have played, at one time or another, in such places as Disneyland and the Crystal Cathedral.
I worked for two years for a web-development company on a team of five programmers. Our site ran on a large number of apache servers with Perl and MySQL back-end.
I have been practicing yoga for two years now. At this point, I can both instruct for proper form, as well as designing a practice that works for any specific fitness level.
