About Alexander


Bio

I have been tutoring for over 4 years and graduated with a Bachelor's in Computer Science from California State University, Fullerton. In my time tutoring, I have tutored elementary through college level students.

I have been tutoring for over 4 years and graduated with a Bachelor's in Computer Science from California State University, Fullerton. In my time tutoring, I have tutored elementary through college level students.

I have successfully prepared students for SAT and ACT Math tests, and up to Trigonometry/Pre-calculus classes. In high school, I was in an accelerated math program where I was able to take AP Calculus AB my junior year, and AP Calculus BC my senior year. After taking the AP Calculus AB & BC Exams, I scored a 5 out of 5 on both tests. This has allowed me to not only begin my higher-level math courses early in college but has also enabled me to keep my math skills refined; where I am currently holding a 3.6 GPA across all of my math classes.

My tutoring philosophy focuses on the individual. I like to know what each of my clients likes to do outside of school so I can relate the math concepts they are learning about things they enjoy doing. To accomplish this, I personally design my lesson plans and customize them to my client’s personality. For example, if I have a student that plays basketball, I will have them solve problems that incorporate concepts of basketball, such as finding a team's field goal percentage. By focusing on each person uniquely, I am able to fully understand why the student is not grasping certain concepts and can help them understand concepts and terms they are already familiar with. This is why all of my students have been and will continue to be successful.

I am available for online, group, and individual sessions. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you soon to help you achieve your academic and personal success!

C,

C

Throughout my undergraduate career, I have learned several programming languages one of which was C. C came very easy to me because I had a strong background in C++. I have now gone on to regularly implement C programming in my projects at Major League Hackathons, as well as my internship. A lot of students shy away from C because they do not think it is a "true" high level language, however my tutoring approach for C is to show students the beauty of having low level concepts in a high level language.
C++,

C++

Being a Computer Science major, I needed to take several programming languages. My first programming language was C++, which has grown into my favorite. Not only have I worked on projects in class in C++, but I have used my skills to design games on my own.
Linux,

Linux

Linux is a very unique operating system that is popular among the Computer Science community, but not the general public. At home, I have a desktop that I installed Linux onto and use regularly. I have noticed that many of the students think Linux is sub-par in comparison to Mac OS or Windows; this is why my part of my Linux tutoring approach analyzes its features. However focusing on features is not enough, which is why I focus on how the open source community developed, security, and what it means when software is "free."
Python,

Python

Python was an interesting language for me to learn. I consider it one of the first "true" high level languages I became proficient in. I have since gone on to tutor students in Python that are STEM and non-STEM majors as well as students in high school. Python is a lot easier for my students to grasp, and I often show them how to make projects using it. Showing my students how to make and implement projects to show their friends and family is the most rewarding part. Making projects allows the student to be as creative as they like and develop art through code.

Algebra 2

In high school, I took Algebra II/Trigonometry Honors which allowed me to stay on the fast track and take Calculus BC my Senior Year. Since then, I have always stayed up to date on my math skills by taking several math courses in college. Being a computer science major, I regularly review and stay up to date on my Algebra.
Calculus,

Calculus

Whether in high school or college, Calculus can be very difficult. The pacing of the class can make it seem impossible to keep up. I work with my students to show them how to relate new topics to previous ones. My students have all raised their grades, and often show signs of improvement with just one session!
SAT Math,

SAT Math

I was in middle school, when I first took the SAT Math test and scored well enough to be recognized by my district. By time I took the exam in high school, I scored within the 90th percentile. Taking the exam is more than understanding the material as it is understanding how to take the test.

When I was looking to apply for college, one of the test I made sure to take was the ACT. The ACT may not be as popular as the SAT, but allowed me to work in a new challenging way. I quickly learned how to work quicker and more efficiently to improve my score on the test. This allowed me to score in the 90th percentile on this test.

Track & Field

In High School I ran Track and Field in the Spring and Cross Country in the Fall. I saw my mile time go from 8:45 to 5:15 over the course of five years. I attribute my success not only to my consistent running and training schedule but also my off-time schedule.

Alex the Great

Alex has been a great resource in helping me understand C++. He's not just knowledgeable, he understands the concepts on an intrinsic level. I can't recommend him enough.

Iker, 13 lessons with Alexander

Knowledge and patient tutor

It is evident through his work that Alexander enjoys what he does. Within 2 days he’s covered lessons plans in a what that is easier to understand and quicker to learn.

Miquela , 2 lessons with Alexander

Java

I don’t even remember off the top of my head right now but I don’t have a very high tolerance for frustration. I become agitated by certain things and not only does he know what he’s doing but he also has a way of keeping me calm. Very few people can do that when I’m agitated but he can.

Greg, 2 lessons with Alexander

Great Teacher!

Alex helped my son understand the concept very well! It was detailed. It was first tutor but my son says it was great tutor then he wants keep tutoring regularly!

JOY, 5 lessons with Alexander

Knowledgeable and Patient

Was a very resourceful and patient instructor. Helped me step by step working through the problem making sure the assignment was correct! I thank people like Alexander for all their hard work and dedication to helping students and individuals who need help with their studies, working to help them in achieving academic success.

Miguel, 1 lesson with Alexander

Very Knowledgeable

Alexander is very sharp, did a great job breaking down my Java lesson plan, well worth the session. Alexander even showed me some nifty shortcuts, and he made sure that I not only knew how to do the lesson, but explained why Java is structured the way it is.

Andrew, 1 lesson with Alexander

Amazing

Alexander is the best tutor I have ever worked with ever! He showed me not only how to think like a programmer but how to check to make sure everything is working correctly. I will defiantly work with him again.

Jackson , 5 lessons with Alexander

Teaches the subject(s) from a variety of perspectives to help you grasp the concepts and content.

The details of C++, and showing how to improve my code, and provides information that isn't in the book. He's easy to communicate with and I'm going to continue using his services to progress in my college academics.

John, 13 lessons with Alexander

My tutor was very knowledgeable

I reached out for help with Python. I am MORE THAN HAPPY that I went with Alexander. I was able to understand a lot more than what I was being taught. Any questions I had were answered very easily and I learned a few ways to make my programming more concise.
