Hello my name is Alexander. I am a young man with an unending passion for the English language and the literature it produces. I graduated from the University of Arizona with a bachelor's degree in English/creative writing. I'm currently enrolled in National University working on my master's degree and teaching credential.
As a young man I struggled in school and had difficulty "getting" why I had to be in high school. As a I grew up, I realized it was because I didn't understand how fun learning could be and how exciting English was. They say hindsight is 20/20 and now I'm bringing my own experiences with me as I tutor young people. I'm here to help students learn how fun this subject can be, how important it is for living in the real world, and how simple it is.
Grammar, diction, syntax, vocabulary, spelling are all just big words for understanding what we do every day. It's important for students to be shown that they are not learning something new but rather learning to wield a tool they've had in their arsenal forever. If it's literature they're having troubles with, I'll read the book along side them and walk them through the whole thing. Again, learning the finer points of literary analysis isn't a new skill, and I want to show students that in literature there is no right answer; rather just an opportunity to think about things in a way they haven't realized yet.
In my tutoring I'll show students easy ways to learn essay writing, how easy grammar can be, and how incredible books are if they're opening to seeing it.
I'm not that far from where they are now, it was only a few years ago that I needed a tutor like me to help me. My age and my passion are my two greatest tools and I'm excited to use them to help students see the joys of English. Hello my name is Alexander.

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.
