About Alex

I have experience tutoring English at the college level in a large tutoring center on a local campus. I primarily work with students on a walk-in and a reoccurring basis. I am adept and experienced at dealing with ENC (remedial) and ELL (ESL) students. I primarily handle MLA style, but I am experienced with APA, and ASA as well.

I am fluent in research utilizing both online and print mediums. I am fluent with online scholarly reviewed journals in databases, and how best to use them. I am knowledgeable in citations and bibliographies in multiple styles. I have experience in dealing with a variety of assignments including basic grammar assignments, essays, (research driven and personal) annotated bibliographies, outlines, and papers of all kinds.

I like tutoring because I enjoy seeing that special moment when a student gets a concept or point that they had been struggling with. Tutors are there to help ... help students make sense of a confusing assignment, help students manage a heavy workload, and help students gain the tools they'll use for the rest of their life. I firmly believe in these ideals, and I hope to gain the chance to share my passion for knowledge with you.
