About Alex

I am a PhD graduate from Northwestern University available to help students of all ages improve their reading and writing skills. For several years, I have been a university instructor, where I am invested in helping all students reach their potentials as critical thinkers. In the classroom and through my assignments, I help students distill key ideas from challenging readings, understand the structure and organization of college-level written work, and express themselves clearly and persuasively through their own writing.

Although I am available to work with students of all ages, I am particularly eager to tutor students who are in high school or college. I would introduce students just entering college to academic writing of the level they may encounter in university classrooms, which would give them a valuable "head start" during the challenging transition from high school to college coursework. I can also provide guidance to help students improve their editing and proofreading skills.

My bachelor's degree is from Cornell, where I graduated summa cum laude. While in college, I taught Critical Reading and Writing SAT prep to individuals as well as small groups, and I am happy to teach standardized test strategies as well. I am able to draw on my experience, while adapting my tutoring strategies to suit the new SAT format, or the ACT.

I often tell my students that reading and writing skills require practice: they improve over time. My strategies for teaching critical reading and writing provide such practice.

I am also happy to tailor lessons to suit a student's own interests. Are you interested in baseball, or pop music, or television? There are texts in each of these areas---and many more---that can be used as the basis for lessons of various levels.

Please contact me for more information. I look forward to hearing from you!
