About Alex

My name is Alex and I am currently an graduate student at the University of Connecticut in the Neag School of Education, pursuing a MA in Curriculum and Instruction. I have two undergraduate degrees, a BA in English and a BS in English Education, and I have wanted to be a teacher for most of my life. I have been tutoring for the past 6 years in a variety of subjects and age groups, and I'd love to work with new students! One of the most important part of tutoring is making sure that your student get the one-on-one assistance that they can't get anywhere else, and I have a lot of experience meeting students where they are. As a writing tutor at the UConn Writing Center, I work one-on-one with students at varying levels of ability, and I am excited to help your student succeed!

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 took Algebra I in high school and later tutored other students for over a year. Math is something I enjoy and hopefully I can explain it in a way that makes sense to others!

English

Along with my pending bachelors degree in English, I have consistently done well on critical reading tests. I have tutored in both SAT and GRE critical reading and my ability to think outside the box helps students understand these types of questions.

Study Skills

I have spent several years on the honor roll and have developed various study habits. As a freshman mentor, I worked to provide other students with a variety of ways to be successful when studying for a wide array of classes. I believe that different subjects require different ways of studying, from flash cards to charts, and I am confident that I can provide students with these processes.
