About Aleksy

Do you need help with a presentation, cover letter, or college essay? Do you need to prepare for the ACT or SAT? Are you an ESL/ESOL student looking to improve your English? Or a student who wants to be speak French better?

Whatever your level and whatever your learning style, I can help you sharpen your verbal, reading, writing, and grammar skills. I can also edit or proofread your writing, or translate it into French.

A bit about me: I've had 15 years of experience tutoring a variety of students at all levels. I completed my PhD in Philosophy at Harvard University in 2017, where I gained nearly 4 years of university-level teaching experience. While at Harvard, I met with hundreds of students to discuss their ideas and help them polish their writing. I've also had 10 years of French language education; I've been a fluent speaker of French since 2007. For two years I was part of a group devoted to translating French texts into English. I've edited many papers and dissertation chapters, along with several faculty drafts and manuscripts. Finally, my phonetics background makes me suited to help new English or French learners with pronunciation.

If you're interested in tutoring, editing, or translation services, please message me to schedule a consultation.

Here is an evaluation from a Harvard undergraduate:

'Aleksy is clearly very intelligent and knows the subject matter inside-out. This came across in his handouts and in section itself. I appreciated that his answers to questions and his explanations themselves were always incredibly precise. There were many times in the course when an area of confusion was addressed simply by the deliberate choice of phrasing used by Aleksy.'

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

French

I have taken French for 10 years, from the 5th grade through college, when I studied for a semester in Paris (Sorbonne/Institut Catholique de Paris). I have a minor in French. Additionally, I tutored French in high school, as part of an after-school program for struggling students, and in college.
