About Alex

Hi, my name is Alex. I grew up in the Chicago suburbs, and now I am a student at The Ohio State University studying landscape architecture. When I'm not studying, you can find me playing music, skateboarding, attempting to cook, or maybe at a music venue.

My experience in teaching includes working for 3 years as a camp counselor as Music program director and later Nature program director, tutoring Algebra, and giving beginning chess and saxophone lessons. I love passing on my knowledge and skills and seeing a student achieve success!

Academically I have always done very well. In high school I graduated in the top 2% of my class and took many AP courses. On the ACT, I scored a 35, including getting a perfect score on the ACT Science section. In college I continue to do well with a 3.6 GPA.

Music is my main hobby, I spend a lot of my free time listening, creating, and sharing it with people. I participated in a great band program from 5th grade to high school graduation, focusing mainly on jazz and improvisation. I also sing and have had lead roles in musicals.

More recently I have been playing a lot of guitar and play in local venues with various bands, playing both covers and original music. Also, I am a massive music geek and listen to lots of different genres!

Experience

Guitar: 10 years
Saxophone: 8 years
Music Theory: Focus on jazz improvisation, and took 2 years of theory lessons
Songwriting: Experience with all aspects in several genres. Lyrics, chord structures, melody, etc.

I've always loved chess! In elementary school I used to go every week to the library to play, and participated in several chess tournaments and camps. Then, in high school I played on the chess team, where we went to state and did well every year. Senior year, I was named a captain.

Don't hesitate to contact me! I would love to share my knowledge with you.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chess

I was on the chess team in high school, and senior year became captain. We managed to do well at tournaments and went to state all four years I participated. I've always enjoyed sharing the game with other people, and have taught many former teammates and friends everything from how pieces move to advanced openings. My tutoring method depends completely on the skill level of the person, but is extremely flexible.
