Hi, my name is Alex. I am a PhD candidate in Economics at MSU and received a Bachelor's in Mathematical Economics from Pomona College in California. I specialize in economics, Stata, and math tutoring.

I'm happy to help students of all ability levels. As long as students are looking to learn I enjoy helping them understand and succeed, both in specific subjects and as students more generally.

I have taught an Economics course at MSU and also have extensive experience serving as a teaching assistant for math-based economics courses.

In terms of testing, I received an 800 in the SAT math section and 164 in the math section of the GRE.

Please reach out if you're interested in working with me! My favorite experiences from teaching and serving as a Teaching Assistant are working with individual students, so I'm excited to meet you and see how I can help.

Very knowledgeable and helpful

Alex's tutoring has helped me gain a better grasp of macro which has allowed me to performed better in class, on assignments, and on my exams. The confidence that I gained from Alex's patience and understanding of Macro has been a big help. Thanks, Alex.
