About Alex

I'm a Northwestern University graduate who knows what it takes to succeed in all subjects and at all levels. I have experience tutoring everything from basic math and reading to Bar/Bat Mitzvah work, but I specialize in essay writing (I'm here for you, college applicants!) and standardized test prep. Having graduated with degrees in theatre and history, I love helping people work on their public speaking skills, and I would be very excited to work with anyone studying culture or the arts.

While studying at Northwestern, I won multiple writing awards and worked as a copy editor for The Daily Northwestern. Since then, I have spent my time taking writing classes and performing at various comedy theaters around Chicago (including Second City and iO), so I know how to command an audience's attention while conveying an important point. I am an excellent writer, proofreader, and public speaker, and I would love to help others reach their full potential.

Whether you're applying for college, studying for an upcoming test, or just hoping to get a little extra help in a difficult subject, I'm here to help! Contact me with any questions and to schedule some upcoming appointments. I'm excited to work with you!

Approved subjects

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.

Public Speaking

I have a Bachelor's Degree in theatre from Northwestern University, where I regularly performed and delivered speeches. Since graduating, I have taken several classes at Second City and other Chicago comedy theaters, and I regularly perform my own written material as well as other published work. I also have experience helping students prepare for their Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, often assisting them in practicing their speeches.

Writing

As a history and theatre student at Northwestern University, I received multiple writing prizes, including the Jill Stacey Harris Prize for writing an outstanding research paper. I also worked as a copy editor for Northwestern's student-run newspaper, The Daily Northwestern. Since graduating, I have further honed my writing, research, and editing skills by working as a Research Center Aide at the Chicago History Museum and as a staff writer for various comedy groups around Chicago. I am an excellent writer with a firm grasp on grammar, mechanics, and syntax. If you're looking to improve your essay writing, contact me!
