About Alex


Bio

I am currently pursuing a PhD in Economics at MIT. Prior to that, I worked as a researcher at the Federal Reserve. As a researcher, I mostly focus on macroeconomics and household finance. For research, I use statistical coding packages such as R, Stata, and Matlab, as well as sophisticated econometric techniques.

I am currently pursuing a PhD in Economics at MIT. Prior to that, I worked as a researcher at the Federal Reserve. As a researcher, I mostly focus on macroeconomics and household finance. For research, I use statistical coding packages such as R, Stata, and Matlab, as well as sophisticated econometric techniques.

I have been tutoring since undergrad, and I truly enjoy helping others learn and succeed. I vividly remember working to get an excellent GRE score to get into graduate school, and I would love to help others during that stressful time.

I was a Math major in undergrad, and I have completed two years of math-intensive economics coursework at MIT. I use statistics, R, and econometrics every day in my research. I made 95th+ percentile GRE scores and a perfect score on the ACT math section.

After spending lots of time teaching myself econometrics and spending hours pouring over GRE test prep books, I can help you focus on what’s important and save time.

I also have lots of experience taking standardized tests and helping others succeed in improving their test taking skills and content knowledge. If you are looking to get a tip top GRE or ACT score, we should chat!

Brilliant!

Alex is incredibly sharp! Quickly understands issues and comes up with strategies on how to best help one understand the concept. I was very lucky to work with her. Thank you Alex!!!!

Carlos, 2 lessons with Alex

Well organized and super nice

During my first session with Alex we discussed the best way to approach studying for the GRE and specifically how to improve my Math score. Alex had good suggestions for ways to tweak my individual studying and suggested several resources for me to look at on my own. I look forward to working with her more for my “problem” topics.

great coach

Alex helps me work through complex graduate requirements and has enough understanding of the subject matter to riff seamlessly from topic to topic. She has adapted to my learning style and communication style quickly. A lot of tutors are looking to help students finish their homework, but Alex really helps you understand your work.

Very smart and very patient

Alex is incredibly patient and explains things thoroughly. She doesn't go over your head with things. When I ask for things to be broken down into easier explanations, she is able to do so in a way that I understand. I really enjoy working with her.

Best Tutor Ever!

Alex is truly the best tutor I've ever had! She is extremely kind and patient which is very reassuring when learning new material. She really cares about the success of her students, and is passionate about making sure that they understand concepts and internalize them. I would not have been able to succeed so well in my Macroeconomics course without her!

Shekhar, 4 lessons with Alex

Patient, helpful and easy to understand

Alex has been a lifesaver for me this semester. Data science is not my area of expertise. Alex has helped me see the value in what I’m learning. I enjoy working together and I have become an R enthusiast thanks to Alex!

Amanda, 9 lessons with Alex

An expert and efficient teacher.

We worked on some basic economic principles. Alex helped me immediately with my questions and anticipated a few things that might have tripped me up in the future. Great session.

Rob, 3 lessons with Alex

Very helpful!

Alex helped me with a stats project over the course of three sessions. She explained things in a very clear way that made it easy for me to understand and gave me the confidence and tools I needed to complete the project. I really appreciated Alex's efficiency - I always walked away from our sessions feeling that I learned a lot and that our time was used well. I would highly recommend Alex to others, especially for topics like linear regression, using R, and interpreting variables and coefficients in context.

Relatable, Patient and Helpful.

Alex is so relatable and helpful. She’s willing to listen and work at your own pace. I was struggling to understand Stata, but she made it so easy. We will be working together on a lot of other projects for a good while.

Hellen, 5 lessons with Alex

First class was not great experience

Before starting the class, she said she can solve all questions correctly With an hour, but it was not true, I spent over that time spent more money. She didn't notice that during the class, she didn't know how to calculate some parts
