Hi, I'm Alex! I have a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue West Lafayette and am now a working STEM professional living in Naperville, IL. I grew up loving math and science, which is why I became an engineer. Engineering school was a rigorous challenge that taught me how to learn independently through practice, asking questions, and building fundamental understanding. Today, we live in a world of online learning, and being an independent learner is more essential than ever. Because of this, I want to use my spare time to share my passion for STEM while helping others achieve their academic goals and develop independence. For years I have tutored younger family members ages 10-16 in STEM subjects. At Purdue I achieved A's and B's in Chemistry, Physics, and Calculus. I was also a supplemental instructor for 3 semesters at Purdue, volunteering at help sessions a few times each week to help fellow students with their homework and test prep questions for Chemistry and Physics.

As a tutor, I believe in supplementing, but not replacing, the student's current instructor and individual study habits by identifying any gaps in knowledge from the get-go and working to address those gaps. To do this, I ask students how the course is going, and if they can teach me what they already know. I might then work a few practice problems and sometimes will ask the student to take over. I also encourage them to ask questions throughout. By keeping the student engaged, making it conversational, addressing specific needs, and building independence in the student, I provide a valuable tutoring service at an affordable rate.

My schedule is flexible as I work from home 95% of the time. I am responsive and will do my best to answer urgent questions outside of lesson time. I am all about helping the student succeed, so if the student or parents have suggestions they want to make, I am happy to hear them. Please reach out to me if you would like to learn more or schedule a lesson. I'm looking forward to meeting you!

Explains subject matter thoroughly & very patient

Alex was hired to tutor our son in geometry and chemistry. Alex's patience and his means of explaining the work at hand was perfect, allowing our son to better understand the material and feel confident on tests. We will not hesitate to reach out to Alex again.

Alex is the best!

My daughter says "Alex is chill smart and funny. He makes the concepts easy to understand. He talks about stuff not math and tries to connect with you. I only met with him a few times and I'm almost caught up." Alex is on time, prepared, and never overcharges. He works with my crazy schedule. He met with my daughter in person when no one else would. Very responsive. Highly recommend him!
