I can help you in AP Calculus AB and college-level Calculus 1. I taught Calculus 1 for several semesters at Virginia Commonwealth University and I was a recitation instructor for Calculus 3 for two semesters at Rutgers University. I tutored grade school students up through calculus students on the side while I was at school because I absolutely adore teaching math. Since then, I graduated from Rutgers University in 2016 with my Masters in mathematics and then moved to Washington, DC as a full-time math tutor.
I am an energetic and happy teacher and I really enjoy finding several different ways to explain something new until it clicks for the student; I am very patient, open, and welcoming. Also, translating dry math concepts into engaging analogies is a characterizing part of my teaching style. My tutoring specialty lies in getting students comfortable and confident in algebra and calculus at both the high school and university levels. I have experience teaching students from elementary school age up through adult students, and I like to make everyone feel comfortable studying math.
Feel free to message me anytime about your particular tutoring goals or to schedule our first session!
--- TEACHING EVALUATION EXCERPT ---
From my year teaching at Rutgers University:
"Alexi was always upbeat and energetic. It helped me get excited about the otherwise dry course."
"She was able to communicate how the formulas worked very well so it was less like memorizing them and more like understanding how and why they worked."
"I absolutely loved attending recitation because of her positive attitude, patience, and helpfulness."
EXCEPTIONAL tutor!! Patient! Thorough! Highly Knowledgeable!
Alexi arrived promptly for our daughter's first session with a bright, warm smile that immediately put our daughter's nerves at ease on the eve of her math exam. Alexi patiently and skillfully untangled the complicated problems that had befuddled our daughter, and replaced her insecurity with clarity and confidence! Alexi tamed the big "Math monster", replacing it with a manageable "math puppy"! Over the following weeks, Alexi was able to explain and demystify difficult math concepts, increasing our daughter's confidence and competence with every session! Before beginning sessions with Alexi, our daughter had set the bar low, wishing only to "pass" her math classes with an acceptable grade, in order to complete her college career. However, by week eight of tutoring, with soaring confidence and new-found math proficiency, our daughter not only passed her final summer math class, but earned an "A" , finishing at the TOP of her class! This would not have been possible without the extraordinary skillfulness, expert teaching abilities and patience that Alexi brings in her masterful "tool chest." She speaks the "language of math" in a way that crystallizes its concepts for her students! She is an extraordinary teacher and an absolute gift to her students!!Tanya, 16 lessons with Alexi
Knowledgeable, skilled tutor
A person who is great at a subject may not be able to teach that subject. Alexi demonstrated that she knew Calculus and was able convey concepts that I had not grasped earlier in the semester. She was more patient and calm with me than I was with myself. I knew the material for my exam and would not hesitate to recommend her.Allison, 2 lessons with Alexi
Always available to help, provided additional practice problems, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. Final grade for course was an A with only 3 lessons. I highly recommend Alexi for College Calculus help.Dana, 3 lessons with Alexi
Helpful and patient
I appreciate the help and patience in explaining concepts I have been struggling with! She explains things in a way I can understand and remember so they can be applied to problems.Louis, 53 lessons with Alexi
Alexi is awesome--she was so great with my 9th grade daughter helping her ace her math final. Alexi rocks! She connected with my daughter like no one else! I cannot say enough great things about her.Gary, 6 lessons with Alexi
Quickly addressed the problem
My daughter was struggling with a topic in AP Calculus. Alexi was able to address it quickly and work with her to bring back her confidence. She feels prepared now to take the upcoming test.Ritu, 7 lessons with Alexi
Patient tutor with great understanding
Alexi helped me with a few Calculus concepts the day before my math exam. She would explain problems multiple times so I would clearly understand the information. She's super nice and does not rush through the material. I highly recommend her as a tutor for math, as she helped me immensely.Joseph, 1 lesson with Alexi
Patient & Helpful!
Alexi is awesome. I was afraid to seek help because I feel a bit behind with Calculus. She is patient and wasn’t simply doing the problem for me. She allowed me to think and work it out, then corrected and helped according.Aquoi, 2 lessons with Alexi
Amazing, knowledgeable, and flexible
Alexi always went the extra mile to help me prepare for tests or just understand the homeworks. She was always early and would continue working late into the night if I needed the help. Highly recommended! Amazing!Lexie, 21 lessons with Alexi
Very knowledgeable and able to explain concepts well...clearly and simply!
Alexi was prompt, so welcoming...greeting us with a warm smile. She sat right next to my daughter and went over every detail of the work my daughter had. She was very patient and gave clear explanation. My daughter left her tutoring session feeling more confident and with a better understanding of her pre Calculus work. We certainly will be meeting with Alexi again. She is an absolute dream of a teacher!!!Kurill, 9 lessons with Alexi
