About Alejandro

I've dedicated time to tutoring in math, computer science, and Spanish the last six years, both at the College of Lake County in Illinois and at Princeton University, and enjoy helping students learn in new ways and really get to understand their material in a deep level while having a good time with it.

Generally, in math and computer science, most students choose to review the course material and assignments with me. I then guide them through solutions in order to identify areas which might cause them trouble and will help to focus on clarifying that material with them. In other cases, they prefer to review course material with me, getting to know the material better through additional explanation and solve course problems independently. Whichever you prefer, I am happy to provide students with whatever approach is most comfortable for them. For language subjects, I can provide tutoring following a structured course or else independently teach students of any level through speaking, reading, and studying grammar.

If you have the drive to learn and need someone with experience to guide you as you go along, I'm your guy! I love teaching and helping students really get to understand what they're learning and why and how things work. Whether you need to cover material for a class or just because you want to learn something new, I'll make sure to break down what you want to learn so that you understand it and are comfortable with it. Hit me up with any questions about subject matters.

I am a native Spanish speaker and have two Master's degrees from Spanish universities. Additionally, I have earned a Minor/Certificate in Computer science from Princeton University and a Master's from the Politecnic of Madrid. I have been coding since I was young in languages such as Java, C, C#, Python, PHP, and more.

Excellent teacher, he knows the material, very patient

Alejandro helped me understand the logic behind a client/server program. He is patient and makes sure that you understand the concept behind the theory. I highly recommend him for your tutoring sessions.
