Hello! My name is Alex, and I specialize in mathematics tutoring. I am based out of Cincinnati, OH, providing expert in-home and online tutoring to students from high school through college as well as adult learners.

I take a student-focused approach to teaching, creating custom educational materials and lessons that suit the student’s needs best. The reason why is simple: there is no such thing as “one size fits all” when it comes to education. Students benefit tremendously from personalized instruction, whether it is to catch up in class, accelerate ahead to new material or learn something completely new and different.

A bit about my background:
I received a dual-major Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Mathematics, and my Master's degree is in Applied Mathematics. I have over 10 years of tutoring and teaching experience in a variety of subjects across many grade levels, from one-on-one tutoring to large formal college-level classes. Students learn in a variety of methods, and I always tailor the tutoring to my students' needs. Part of my teaching style involves working with my students to strengthen their study skills, note-taking skills, and test-taking skills.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have a Master's degree in Applied Mathematics, and I have tutored Algebra 1 for over 10 years. I find connecting Algebra 1 topics with real world applications is one of the best ways to teach this subject. I take topics that may seem overwhelming and break them down into manageable pieces. Algebra 1 is the foundation for higher level mathematics such as Algebra 2, Precalculus, and Calculus. While working with my students, I reinforce that foundational knowledge.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have tutored Algebra 2 for over 10 years, and I have a Master's degree in Applied Mathematics. Algebra 2 can be a very difficult subject, often requiring significant symbol manipulation and abstract thought. Through practice, real world concepts and careful teaching, I teach students algebraic rules and reasoning.
Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus is one of my favorite subjects. I have taught and tutored calculus for over 10 years, and I have a Master's degree in Applied Mathematics. I tutor both differential and integral calculus, which are usually listed as calculus 1 and 2, respectively, at most high schools and colleges. Calculus has many applications in the real world; I use these applications as part of my teaching methods. Symbol manipulation (e.g. computing derivatives or antiderivatives) is a common theme throughout calculus, and I am familiar with many tricks and methods for helping solve the variety of problems that arise in calculus. I also tutor multivariable calculus. This is sometimes listed as calculus 3 at the college level.
Geometry,

Geometry

Geometry can be one of the most difficult areas of mathematics for students to understand. Besides the multitude of definitions and theorems involved with this subject, we also introduce the notion of proofs. I understand the difficulties involved with learning this material. I have tutored geometry for over 10 years, and I know which methods work and which ones do not.
Precalculus

Precalculus

I have tutored precalculus for over 10 years, and I have a Master's degree in Applied Mathematics. Precalculus topics typically tend to be more abstract, so relating them to real world concepts can be difficult. When possible, I do use concrete examples to make precalculus topics simpler. Practice and careful, thorough examination of precalculus topics are my traditional methods for teaching this subject.

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I have a Master's degree in Applied Mathematics. My area of expertise is partial differential equations. I taught Differential Equations courses at my university in the capacity of a Graduate Teaching Assistant. I am familiar with a wide range of differential equations topics, including various solution methods, Laplace transforms, eigenvalue problems, initial value problems and mass-spring systems among many other topics. I particularly enjoy boundary value problems, such as the heat, wave and Laplace equations. Having been a Graduate Teaching Assistant in differential equations, I have detailed knowledge of the material that most differential equations courses cover.

Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I have a Master's degree in Applied Mathematics. I taught Multivariable Calculus and Linear Algebra (combined course) courses at my university in the capacity of a Graduate Teaching Assistant. I have a working knowledge of many linear algebra topics, including eigenvalue problems, vector spaces and matrix properties. Real world examples lend themselves very well to this particular subject. Many scenarios in real life are described by linear equations and thus fall under the category of linear algebra. I like to use these examples as teaching tools. Connecting the mathematics to the real world can help students understand what is really happening behind the mathematics.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I have tutored precalculus for over 10 years, and I have a Master's degree in Applied Mathematics. Precalculus topics typically tend to be more abstract, so relating them to real world concepts can be difficult. When possible, I do use concrete examples to make precalculus topics simpler. Practice and careful, thorough examination of precalculus topics are my traditional methods for teaching this subject.
Trigonometry

Trigonometry

I have tutored trigonometry for about 10 years, with even more experience tutoring trigonometry concepts in courses such as algebra 2, precalculus and calculus. I also have a Master's degree in Applied Mathematics. Trigonometry is found throughout mathematics, especially higher level math; therefore a strong foundation in the subject is very important. Since trigonometry is the study of triangles, it has a very real application to the physical world. Relating abstract concepts to real world concepts is a great method for teaching trigonometry and one that I use often.

Very professional tutor for Calculus

Alex is an expert on difficult subject matter from AP Calculus BC. Not many folks can tutor in this area, but he is an expert. Very professional. Always patient and kind as well.

Kendall, 11 lessons with Alexander

Exceptionally great!

Alexander does the impossible: in only one hour per week, my daughter's grades went from a inconsistent B/B- to a consistent A. He knows exactly how to help her understand the material. His style gives my daughter confidence: he is steady, calm and patient; yet never patronizes. He is very accurate in his assessments and I count on his excellent judgement. When he says she knows the material (or not), he is always correct.

Jen, 43 lessons with Alexander

Great Tutor! Patient, great at explaining difficult concepts, and incredibly knowledgeable.

Alex and I went over Calculus 1 concepts in preparation for my final exam. He was not only able to help me through understanding the material but was also more than happy to slow down and really explain the process to me. If I could rate him higher than 5 stars I would.

Justin, 2 lessons with Alexander

Knowledgeable and patient

Alex is so patient when working with both of my children. They really appreciate that he notices a quizzical look on their face and tries to explain the work in a different way so they will understand. We will work with Alex before school starts and throughout next school year, he's wonderful.

Kimberly, 23 lessons with Alexander

Excellent tutor!

Alex has been great with helping my daughter in her Pre-Calculus class. He patiently explains concepts to her in a way for her to grasp and understand. He has a knowledge of math on many different levels and knows how to present it in a style and terms easier to comprehend. He is always courteous and professional and also flexible if we have needed to cancel or change a lesson. I highly recommend him.

Lisa, 12 lessons with Alexander

Excellent tutor

Alex is helping my son gain confidence in geometry. He has been a great help and is a patient steady teacher.

Sarah, 23 lessons with Alexander

Very knowledgeable and patient tutor

Alexander was a big help for my son with his 11th grade math. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing extra help . He was very punctual and willing to come to our house.

Vera, 5 lessons with Alexander

Outstanding tutor!

Alexander has been invaluable helping my daughter keep up with her AP Calculus class. He is extremely knowledgeable and thoroughly explains difficult concepts to her. Not only has he promptly arrived for her near weekly sessions but he has also been very accommodating when we called for a last minute booster or review session. I would highly recommend!
