About Alexander


Bio

Hello, I'm Alex! I graduated summa cum laude from Missouri S&T with a bachelor's degree in nuclear engineering and a minor in mathematics. During my studies I realized that the one thing I enjoy more than learning is teaching what I've learned to someone else. As an engineer, I do my best to teach material in a way that is not only remembered by the student, but also understood. I believe that understanding the material on a deep level sets a student up for both immediate and future victories...

Hello, I'm Alex! I graduated summa cum laude from Missouri S&T with a bachelor's degree in nuclear engineering and a minor in mathematics. During my studies I realized that the one thing I enjoy more than learning is teaching what I've learned to someone else. As an engineer, I do my best to teach material in a way that is not only remembered by the student, but also understood. I believe that understanding the material on a deep level sets a student up for both immediate and future victories in the classroom.

I have multiple years of tutoring experience in a vast variety of subjects; however, I have mainly taught mathematics throughout my career. I have tutored middle school students, adults with full time jobs, and nearly every age in-between. My approach is always to learn about the individual and then tailor the sessions accordingly. I feel rewarded when my students do well; therefore, I do everything I can to ensure their success.

I am always available and will respond in a timely manner. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have or to schedule a lesson. I look forward to being able to help you succeed!

Thorough and Patient Tutor

My nine year old son has enjoyed working with Alexander. He made a point to get to know my son, inquired about what strategies might work best to engage with him per his young age, & has done a thorough job teaching him & having him build a strong base in Python.

Chelsey, 3 lessons with Alexander

The Best! Helped me go from zero knowledge in MATLAB to a pretty solid understanding within less than a week.

We went from basic matlab to really complex assignments from UC Berkeley in a matter of days. I had zero knowledge and was super behind in my summer class. Still getting tutored by him but couldn't recommend him enough! Super patient, focused, driven, explains theory as he goes, and fair. Open to basics or specifics and connects to big ideas for the student to understand how to use the program, and connects it to your major as well! Great dude.

Victoria, 8 lessons with Alexander

Another great lesson!

So thankful for Alex he keeps my son learning and thinking! I don’t think he will lose any ground because Alex constantly challenges him

Amanda, 53 lessons with Alexander

Another great lesson!

With the distance learning Alex has taken on the role of teacher. My son has done great thanks to Alex!!! He makes him think and explain the process

Amanda, 53 lessons with Alexander

Very prepared and engaging tutor

Alexander is one of the best tutors I (Logan) have had. He comes very prepared to each session and knows how I learn best. He is very capable in helping me learn concepts that I need in my college education right now. -Logan Armijo

Tina, 4 lessons with Alexander

Excellent tutor

Alexander helped my son establish some much needed math foundations. We look forward to many more sessions to get him back up to speed and passing his class!

Courtney, 6 lessons with Alexander

Excellent Lesson

Alex is super helpful and really committed to helping students understand the material better. He took the time to look through my assignment beforehand and had a clear gameplan of how we were going to work through the assignment which made the lesson run smoothly and I feel like I got a lot out of it. I will definitely book with Alex again!

Stephanie, 1 lesson with Alexander

Another great lesson!

I love that he makes my son explain the process back to him. So he knows he understands!!! He is a great teacher!

Amanda, 53 lessons with Alexander

Knowledgeable and compassionate

I explained to Alexander that I am slightly compromised intellectually. He understood, and he proceeded slowly and carefully, showing me things one-thing-at-a-time. Rather than saying, "do A and then do B and then do C", which I cannot handle, he would say, "Do A", and he would wait until I did A and until I wrote down how I had just done A, and then he would go to B and then to C, in a way I could handle, and without any condescension. I had actually explained that I am eleven years old, counting from my seventieth birthday, and things don't work the same upstairs as they did during the first seventy years. Alexander handled it perfectly. As for Alexander's technical knowledge, he figured out the way each of my software systems worked, and he explained to me the simplest way do accomplish my goals. Alexander understood that simple works best for me. I am very grateful to Alexander.
