University of Delaware, Newark
Hello! My name is a Alex and I have a degree in Elementary Teacher Education with a second concentration in Middle School Mathematics from the University of Delaware. I've also completed a Masters degree from the University of Illinois for Curriculum and Instruction in Math, Science, and Technology. I have over 5 years of tutoring experience with students from ages 5 to 14 in reading and mathematics.
To be a beneficial tutor I believe I need to capitalize on a person's strengths. By providing the strategies needed to be successful, you can thrive within the classroom. My expertise expand beyond elementary into pre- algebra, algebra, geometry, and probability as well. As an elementary and middle school teacher, I understand the demands of school. I am a very patient and will give you the time needed to think and process.
I love teaching and want to help you! Please note, I am available to teach in areas outside of what my degree is in. I am available to tutor in the evening after 4:30 and on the weekends. Hello!

Alex has an excellent rapport with my son and is patient and helpful in guiding him to finding his own solution to math problems. Alex also seems to carefully evaluate whether he has really understood the concepts. His math performance at school has improved dramatically as a result of Alex's help.
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.
In 2009, I received a bachelor's degree in Elementary Teacher Education from the University of Delaware. During those four years I developed strategies and techniques to stimulate learning within the classroom. With these skills I believe I can help any student struggling at the elementary level. Learning to read is a challenge for many students and assigning an one-on-one instructor can be very beneficial to bring a student back up to grade level. In addition, I very much enjoy mathematics whether it is at the elementary or middle school level. Therefore, I can incorporate my knowledge and understanding to break down concepts so they are manageable for the struggling learner.
