About Alexander

I enjoy working with kids who are an intellectual challenge. For me, each child is a puzzle, and my job is to solve the riddle of how they think. I try to determine how it is that I can get a particular child to make the step through the gap of understanding in order to learn new things. I think learning with a tutor should be an exciting, out of your seat, actively thinking non-worksheet way to learn. I am a strong believer in the importance of the fundamentals of reading, writing and mathematics, and I think I can do a good job of making those topic interesting (no... really...).

I am a bit different from most elementary school teachers in that I am male (a rarity at about 5% of the total population) and was in the army for 4 years. In addition, I am married, and have two sons of my own, three and five months. I am also a Hickory native, and proud of it.
