About Alexander


Bio

Throughout my life I have always been extremely interested in a huge breadth of academic interests, as well as hobbies and popular culture. I've never had anything handed to me, and have worked in both the most casual, as well as the highest echelons of the service industry for the last decade to get through school. Along with my natural disposition, this has imbued me with an uncommonly patient attitude, and the ability to connect with both the most prodigious learners, as well as those...

Throughout my life I have always been extremely interested in a huge breadth of academic interests, as well as hobbies and popular culture. I've never had anything handed to me, and have worked in both the most casual, as well as the highest echelons of the service industry for the last decade to get through school. Along with my natural disposition, this has imbued me with an uncommonly patient attitude, and the ability to connect with both the most prodigious learners, as well as those with myriad challenges. I have a genuine interest in sharing my comprehensive knowledge and understanding in all subject matter with those who I encounter, and I view this job as an unequivocal blessing, it is never burdensome whatsoever. My home is shared with my mother, and is a fecund study environment, however I am very willing and able to meet at your location, or a third-party location, i.e. the Hamilton Township Free Public Library, which is quite close to my home.

My formal academic training includes at B.A. degree in History from Rutgers College at Rutgers University, where I also pursued a rigorous course schedule in the other soft sciences (Philosophy, English Literature, Comparative Literature, et. al.), and received myriad awards and scholarships including a merit-based scholarship from Rutgers College, admittance to the College's prestigious Honors' Program, and consideration for the Rhodes' Scholarship. During my high school career, my GPA was always above 4.0 on the 4.0 scale, due to a large battery of intensive Advanced Placement Courses in the hard and soft sciences including AP Biology, Chemistry, European History, U.S. Government and Politics, and English Literature. My SAT scores were amongst the highest in my class of over 300, and I received a perfect score of 6.0 on the writing portion of the GRE, as well as placing highly in the other assessments.

Additionally, my academic training, in both secondary and every level of post-secondary education, has included a variety of different experiences and challenges, both traditional and nontraditional, which makes me able to relate to students in all different variety of circumstances. I grew up in a tough neighborhood, so I know what it is to struggle with both the tangible and intangible challenges imposed by those experiences, and my neighborhood was so diverse that Arnold Schwarzenegger actually visited my elementary school. I have Spanish language skills which make me accessible to those students, as well as experience with learning disabilities like ADD and ADHD, and the hearing impaired through my extensive experiences with the Boy Scouts of America's Troop 63 in Hamilton Square, and my own personal experiences. My methods of teaching and tutoring are always curtailed toward the student or students who I am dealing with in that instance, and they always receive my full and undivided attention. My time is less important to me than the full understanding, I will always go the extra mile to ensure full understanding, and I am available at all times for consultation via phone or email, so that questions that are not addressed during sessions can receive extra clarification and attention. I look forward to hearing from you soon, and hope that our meeting will result in an extremely productive relationship. Cheers!!

In addition to a focus on several aspects of English throughout a vast academic career where I never failed to meet and then redefine the bar for those performing above the top expectations, I also have several years of utilizing these skills in a business context during my work for Amazon.com; which continues to yield bigger successes at a greater rate and has relegated my favorite academic disciplines to simply my strongest passion.

Guitar

Guitar

Since I was a child I've had an obsessive interest in rock music, the figures, the events and the culture that it comes from and that it in turn informs or even dictates as well as the equipment, theory and execution needed to produce this ever-evolving art form. Of late, I've even gone back to lessons myself to further develop advanced techniques and learn variation, new materials and approaches, even more theory and different stylistic inflections and peculiarities to add more nuance and personalization while still greatly improving the physical execution of this almost unnecessarily large vocabulary. I am looking for students new to guitar of any age or background, with or without equipment (I have a large supply of different acoustic and electric guitars and amps that students can use or even borrow as the situation and agreements dictate). Looking for people who have developed this interest on their own accord and are driven by their love of the music; I will teach every other aspect of the art of rocking out on the six string.
