About Alex

I'm an enthusiastic and engaging tutor. I get a thrill when I see that my students have achieved understanding, and I want nothing more than for my students to walk into their classroom, confident that they can pass the class. It's a huge relief to know you know the material!

I started tutoring in 2009 as a high school student. I attended USC on scholarship and immediately joined a program for tutoring South Central elementary students. I earned a promotion to become a coordinator of the program, where I oversaw 7 schools and over 70 tutors. After graduating I started tutoring in the South Bay area, where I've helped dozens of students reach their goals. I'm new to Wyzant and would love to have you as my next student!

My specialties are in 1. math, it's always been my favorite subject. I can teach anything from elementary math to calculus. 2. the ACT. I have had more experience tutoring students in the ACT than anything else. We will work tirelessly to reach your goal score. I guarantee you'll improve. Lastly, I have a degree from USC in English, and I'd be happy to help you with your writing process or your grammar & editing needs!

Looking forward to meeting you!

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.

Algebra 1

I've tutored algebra 1 to six students in the past year. I'm working with many of them on geometry to this day! I'm super fresh on the material and practiced in teaching it. Hire me for your Algebra 1 needs!

Algebra 2

I've taught the subject professionally: last school year, I taught a student the course using online software. It was just me and him (he got a 95% in the course). This year, I am helping a student through precalculus and another in trigonometry (both of which have material that you see in Algebra 2). Would love to help your son or daughter in Algebra 2.

Elementary Math

I tutored at USC for the Joint Educational Project. For four years, I would walk off campus to a local elementary school and tutor boys and girls, one-on-one in reading and math. I got to help so many students and I learned a lot. As a result, I'm very familiar with common core standards, as well as a young student's mindset.

English

USC English degree - 3.89 GPA. Practiced in essay writing, editing, and grammar rules. Can help any high school student with their English homework needs.

Geometry

I'm in the middle of helping 3 students in Geometry. I'm happy to say that all three have A's in their class. I'm taking on all geometry students!

Precalculus

I've done a lot of math tutoring in the past year. Everything from Algebra 1 to Precalculus. I went through Calc BC in high school, and I'm in the process of teaching myself linear algebra. I can teach anything on precalculus - from trigonometry to vectors to matrix multiplication to De Moirev's theorem and conic sections!

Reading

I graduated from USC with a 3.9 GPA in English. I've done everything from helping elementary school students learn the alphabet to helping high school seniors nail the reading/writing section on the SAT.

Writing

USC English degree, 3.9 GPA, avid reader, writer, and editor

Positive and patient

Met with Alex today for the first time. He was actually willing to sit with my daughters teacher to make sure my daughter gets exactly what she needs. So impressed that someone was willing to do so. Alex is patient and willing to go above and beyond to make sure my daughter succeeds.
