About Alexandra

Intellectual curiosity can often seem absent in students who are having difficulty learning. A successful tutor will help students harness their intellectual curiosity to succeed. I have over 3 years of tutoring experience assisting elementary through college aged students achieving their full academic potential. I have successfully tutored a variety of age groups because I tailor my tutoring style to the mode in which each student learns best. I take a SMART approach when establishing a student's curriculum. By establishing, Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely goals for students, goals are easier to understand and to recognize when completed. My ultimate goal is to assist my students achieve their educational goals with confidence. I am a passionate and rigorous tutor; however, I am patient as can be when reinforcing a concept a student is struggling to grasp. I utilize homework assignments to reinforce skills and tasks focused on during tutoring sessions. I also provide progress reports to the student and parent in order to systematically track their progress.

I specialize in tutoring the humanities but I have tutored in other academic areas as well. I have tutoring experience with the AP US History exam. When I took the exam as a student, I received a 4.0 score on it. Since most of my course assignments in college were academic papers rather than multiple choice tests, I am very adept in writing and proofreading written work. I have been praised by numerous professors by for my written work throughout my academic career. As for my qualifications, I received my B.A. from Rutgers University; I graduated with a double major in history and political science with summa cum laude honors. I formerly interned for United States Senator Frank R. Lautenberg. I am currently in the process of obtaining my M.A. in the history of science, technology and medicine from Rutgers University. I am also a fellow in the Eagleton Institute of Politics.

I have a strict 12 hour cancellation policy but try to be accommodating to unforeseeable circumstances. I am happy to meet where it is convenient for my students. I am also able to meet in a quiet and serene tutoring space in Newark for private or group tutoring sessions. If you have additional questions about my qualifications, rates or hours of availability, please feel free to reach out to me. I'm very excited to meet you and I can't wait to be your tutor!
