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 5 years of tutoring experience assisting elementary through college aged students. 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.

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 received my M.A. from Rutgers University-NJIT with a major in environmental history and a minor in women's and gender studies. I am in the process of obtaining a Master of Environmental Management (MEM) degree at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.

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 for my written work throughout my academic career.

I am happy to meet where it is convenient for my students. 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!
