My name is Alexander D. I am a jack-of-all-trades entrepreneur, published scholar, technology professional, and learning specialist. What immediately distinguishes me from other tutors is my extensive background in the learning process, and how it can be targeted for improved performance across all subject domains. There are no natural-born geniuses; students who are able to better comprehend, retain, and execute what they've learned with fewer resources, time, and effort merely have acquired these skills earlier in life; I work closely with students to ensure they master these skills, so that whatever they learn they will learn for a lifetime. If learning has ever felt like a chore or a hassle, then look no further! I make learning feel tangible and relevant.
= My Tutoring Philosophy =
Learning is a skill, and, like any skill, it can be refined and improved with proper instruction and guidance.
= My Guarantee =
I will NOT CHARGE you if you are not completely satisfied with my performance. I am WILLING TO NEGOTIATE PRICING based on financial ability, tutoring format, session length & frequency, group tutoring, and other factors. I will provide FREE SUPPORT IN-BETWEEN SESSIONS via email and Skype instant messages.
= My Tutoring Experience =
I have worked closely with students of all ages and abilities over the past several years. Most of my high school and college students who earned a 'C' their first semester ended up earning an 'A' in their second semester and subsequent courses with only two hours of tutoring a week. While volunteering at St. Mary's Children's Hospital, I have worked closely with elementary and middle school students to keep pace with schoolwork while they were confined to the hospital for long-term care. I have experience working with student peers who experience difficulties with esteem, motivation, and/or concentration to make complete and total attitude and behavioral changes. These problems, which are said to occur in the Self-System and/or the Metacognitive System of the Human Psyche, can be targeted and corrected just like any other behavior.
= My Background =
I am a multidisciplinary individual, with a background in computing and education.
I earned my BS in Computer Science at the University of Central Florida. While a student, I served as a teaching assistant and academic tutor, and became a published researcher in the math-savvy field of Computer Vision. Over the past several years, I have worn many hats in the computing industry, where I have worked as a software engineer, a web designer & developer, a triple-certified IT technician, a technical writer & editor, a public speaker, a business consultant, and a technological entrepreneur.
I also have a background in the learning process and knowledge acquisition, where I've spent several years conducting research, innovating new learning methodologies, and developing educational software. I am fluent in The New Taxonomy of Educational Objectives, which is a modern revision of Bloom's Taxonomy. I use the New Taxonomy heavily when designing custom syllabi for my students.

Very Knowledgeable Tutor
Alexander was very Knowledgeable and patient and took the time to make sure I understood the material. He knows how to explain topics thoroughly and breaks down problems until it is understood. After our session he pointed out problems and also gave solutions to these problems. Highly recommended Tutor.Reginald, 4 lessons with Alexander
