About Alexander

Hello!

My name is Alex, and after retiring early from executive engineering management I now thoroughly enjoy tutoring math, science, and English at all levels. In addition to private tutoring, I work regularly as a tutor at several certified teaching centers in Michigan, and I specialize in teaching learning and time management strategies for general studying and also for optimizing ACT, SAT, GRE, TOEFL, and other tests. I also provide assistance with resume writing, editing of professional texts/essays, dissertation writing, technical reviews, etc.

I am a very good listener, and adapt my teaching style and pace according to your individual needs and preferences. My students tend to improve considerably after some tailored assistance.

My background is in theoretical physics and engineering, where I hold Master's, Civil Engineering, and Doctorate degrees, and as such I have significant experience with algebra, calculus, geometry, trigonometry, and other math sub topics taught at high school and college levels, in addition to a broad science background, particularly in physics and materials science.

I was born and raised in Sweden and have lived in the US for 17 years now. I have published about 40 professional papers and book chapters, presented my work at more than a hundred science conferences around the world, and authored over a dozen patents. I speak four languages and have traveled to more than forty countries, privately and as a technology and engineering leader, and have thus experienced many different cultures and languages. I am also an Air Force veteran. On a personal note, I love all kinds of sports and music and am a voracious reader of a wide variety of literature.

I hope to hear from you and help you achieve your individual goals. A little help can go a long way, and there are no obstacles too large to overcome working together as a team!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Business

I have spent about 15 years as a business professional, managing up to a hundred engineers for a number of years. I have worked with strategic planning, technology roadmaps, budgeting, talent management, and worked across the board with supply chain, legal affairs, human resources, sales, etc. I have published about 40 original research papers and made oral presentations at conferences about a hundred times, almost half of those as an invited or even keynote speaker. My resume contains the salient details.

Public Speaking

While getting my doctorate in Physics, during my post-doctorate studies in the US, and for quite a number of years after that, I presented material during speeches at about 100 different venues across the globe. More importantly, I was invited to (paid to) give about 40 presentations, including keynote speeches, at various conferences around the globe. Following that, I routinely presented to executives in multi-billion dollar Fortune 100 and even larger public corporations. This is one of my absolute strengths.
