Hello,

I am here to help you improve your understanding of economics and math. I have tutored middle school, high school, and college students in microeconomics, macroeconomics, Algebra I and II, Geometry, and Calculus (HS and University) for several years. This includes preparation for quantitative sections of exams such as the GRE.

I emphasize a comprehensive, "big picture" understanding of any subject, rather than a mechanical "pass the test" type of approach, as I believe a good understanding of multiple concepts of a subject allows a student to do well in class even if they forget a detail or don't remember a specific fact. I am very patient with my students and encourage students to approach the subjects intuitively.

Extremely knowledgeable and engaging

Alex takes his job very seriously and this benefits the student extremely. He is excellent at tutoring and I would definitely recommend as an Economics tutor. He was able to explain complex ideas in a very simplistic and thoughtful manner.

Ben, 2 lessons with Alexander

Great first start

This was my first lesson with Alexander to study micro. It was a good start and I'm looking forward to working with him. He's knowledgeable and should improve my performance.

Luke, 1 lesson with Alexander

Knowledgeable tutor

I am completing my MBA and taking a quantitative analysis class. Alexander was very detailed in helping me with my homework problems. He explained things in a detailed manner that I was able to comprehend. I will use him again.

Evelyn, 2 lessons with Alexander

Perfect Econ Tutor

Alex is patient and very knowledgeable! If you have any qualms about economics, he’s the person to talk to. Very flexible, easy to talk to, and open to discussing anything until you get it.

Clark, 3 lessons with Alexander

Excellent Tutor

Alex is very friendly, knowledgeable, responsive, and patient. In areas where the terminology was vague or not explained in depth in my class or textbook, Alex broke it down to be understandable and used examples to make the relevant connections to real-life scenarios. He is dedicated and will work with you on what you are trying to improve on, be it your over-all understanding of Econ or a specific problem.

Lauren, 3 lessons with Alexander

Best Tutor I have had

Alex is knowledgeable in various subjects in business and helped me understand the material I needed help. Went through each step with me and gave me good feedback.

Andrea, 5 lessons with Alexander

Knowledgeable and very patient

Alex is everything I hoped he'd be. Serious, no nonsense and dedicated to helping you to do your best. No question is ridiculous. He gets into your mind to determine how you think and pushes you to think. I am not analytical--but I am learning how to become better and Alex challenges me. I am excited to continue working with him.

Patricia, 2 lessons with Alexander

Amazing teacher with great academic and professional advice!

Alex is very flexible and works with my schedule. He teaches econometrics in a very clear and simple way that makes the material less intimidating and easy to understand. Alex is patient and prepared for every lesson. I am a senior at GW and he as advised me on my thesis paper, graduate schools and jobs! Alex has been beyond helpful and is worth every penny!

Constructive, Approachable, Top-Notch Teacher

I worked with Alexander D. on my senior thesis in economics. My background in econometrics is very limited, and I asked Alexander to assist me in testing my econometric model. Alex not only helped me manipulate my data and develop a strong command of linear regression and different statistical software packages, but he also helped me (vastly) improve my model and thesis. Prior to our three-hour session, I felt very intimidated by the material and anxious about the feasibility of my research. Alexander quelled my worries with his very patient, clear, and manageable approach to teaching. He did his best to work at an optimal pace and he used our time efficiently. He was very accommodating and he came to our session well-prepared. Following our three hour meeting, I feel I have a much stronger understanding of econometrics and I look forward to using the tools he equipped me with to write a first-rate research paper. He's very intelligent, and he has a great sense of humor as well. I have worked with other tutors in the past, but Alexander was the most approachable and helpful of any I've worked with. I look forward to working with him again. Thanks again Alexander!
