I have an M.S. in mathematics and am currently doing research in the Data Science field. I've been tutoring for over a decade.

As an undergraduate, I tutored for the NYU Math Department. After my sophomore year, I was tutoring students in all levels of undergraduate math. After I graduated I became an adjunct instructor for all types of math courses at NYU Tandon, the engineering school of NYU.

I have an M.S. in mathematics and am currently doing research in the Data Science field. I've been tutoring for over a decade.

As an undergraduate, I tutored for the NYU Math Department. After my sophomore year, I was tutoring students in all levels of undergraduate math. After I graduated I became an adjunct instructor for all types of math courses at NYU Tandon, the engineering school of NYU. I also held an administrative role at the Math Department where I wrote exams for most undergraduate courses.

I have also tutored several graduate level courses, mostly math courses, but also Machine Learning and Intro to Data Science. Because of my experience at Tandon, and as my research uses data science topics applied to sports, I am no stranger to how to use math in applied fields.

I believe that solidifying the fundamentals of the topic your are learning is the best way to improve. This also helps with confidence; I have seen math anxiety legitimately hurt the exam scores of otherwise exceptional students. Also, every student learns differently, so having a variety of teaching styles to adapt to the needs of the student is important.

I have tutored, taught, and/or written exams for each of the courses I have listed.

Feel free to reach out to me for any questions or to schedule a lesson.

Knowledgeable and Efficient

I had some specific, technical questions he was able to immediately answer. He also provided good intuition around a variety of stats model by relating the formulas to specific examples

William, 1 lesson with Alexander

Very knowledgeable and very patient

Alexander is really patient and explains things well. I like that he shows me how to solve a problem then gives me another to work out. We use some worksheets and a book which gives a variety exercises.

Anne, 10 lessons with Alexander

Knowledgeable goes at your own pace tutor

I had a crash course of Calc 1 and it was amazing!!! I would totally recommend! I am going to continue to use him for my calc 2 class and next semester hopefully for my linear algebra class

Ana, 2 lessons with Alexander

data analysis

Very difficult subject for me, never the less you made it super easy and understandable. a lot of fun with the class! Thank you

lele, 8 lessons with Alexander

Very knowledgeable and knows how to explain

Most tutors are either good teachers or good at their discipline, Alex is great at both. Can't go wrong with Alex. He takes the time to explain things and will move at your pace.

Matt, 2 lessons with Alexander

Intro lesson

Alexander is awesome. Expert on the topics and was able to spot my errors instantly. Also is a very personable individual who I look forward to working with

Sahil, 1 lesson with Alexander

Thorough understanding of a wide array of topics

Alexander was able to thoroughly explain several topics, with practice problems, as I asked him on the spot. Explains topics clearer and simpler than my professors.

Anderson, 1 lesson with Alexander

Extremely Helpful and Knowledgeble in Machine Learning and Probability

Alex has been incredibly helpful, during a semester where office hours and TA help is very scarce, due to the nature of remote learning and COVID-19. He has great availability flexibility, and has been able to help me understand problems I've run into during this online semester.

Zachary, 9 lessons with Alexander

Helpful and Knowledgeable Help

Alex did a great job of explaining my course material, and helps you understand complex concepts in a simplified way. I would highly recommend Alex if you are looking for help in any math concepts.
