About Alex

I am a certified teacher in two subject areas, Social Studies and ESL. I have a Master's Degree in Communication from Emerson College and a B.A. in Government and International Relations from Clark University. My Education Graduate work was at Fairfield University, (TESOL) and University of Bridgeport (Social Studies). Currently I run an after-school homework program for the Boys and Girls Club of Stamford and a supplemental education program called Saturday Academy. I am also currently tutoring a fifth grader in Math. I was a Substitute Teacher in the Stamford and Greenwich Public schools and a full time Social Studies Teacher for the Lowell School in Queens, NY. My focus in Social Studies is varied and includes American History, World History, Government and Geography. For English and ESL, my focus is on Grammar, reading and writing. I am not an expert in math but I can tutor some of the Elementary Grades. My rates are reasonable. I prefer not to teach to tests but I have some experience with the American History portion of the New York Regents and would be willing to help with the Language Arts Section of the Connecticut CMT or CAPT tests.
