About Alexander

I am highly experienced and professional tutor with over 10 years of experience in education teaching a wide range of students including different ages (4-65 ) and cultures. My educational background includes a B.S. in Molecular Toxicology from UC-Berkeley and a TESOL certification to teach English to non native speakers. My extremely varied and diverse experience (taught in 4 different countries) allows flexibility of approach to different situations.

I create a highly personalized tutoring programs that are centered on the students' exact needs. Additionally, there is a focus on putting proper systems and goals in place so that the student is able to take control of their own education and be able to monitor their own progress.

My strong academic background allows me to be highly qualified to tutor in many subjects particularly in the Math and Science areas. In addition, I want to elaborate on two subjects where my experience has made me an expert: College Prep and ESL training for Professionals.

I have extensive experience with all aspects of the College Admissions process as a director of an international school in China for Chinese students looking to study at American Universities. This included test prep for TOEFL, SAT and ACT. A highly successful approach that raised students' scores by a minimum of 300 points on the SAT, 6 points on the ACT and 30 points on TOEFL within a 2 month period. Additionally, designed plans to help students get into their schools of choice.

I spent over three years teaching ESL to professionals in Brazil. Courses customized based on client need and were generally a mix of language training and career development. Clients included professional from such companies as Visa, Nokia, Unilever, Vale as well as doctors, lawyers, members of the financial sector amongst others.
