I recently graduated from the University of Oregon with a Master's in Architecture. Before that, I studied Environmental Engineering at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania. I am currently working out of my garage in Eugene, Oregon on a start-up, but I need some extra money.

I can help students with their homework to get good grades in school, but I can do so much more. I live in the real world with real problems. I apply the knowledge and skills I gain to create a path for my future. I want to...

I recently graduated from the University of Oregon with a Master's in Architecture. Before that, I studied Environmental Engineering at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania. I am currently working out of my garage in Eugene, Oregon on a start-up, but I need some extra money.

I can help students with their homework to get good grades in school, but I can do so much more. I live in the real world with real problems. I apply the knowledge and skills I gain to create a path for my future. I want to help students do the same.

With years of tutoring and teaching experience, both in-person and over zoom, I can pass on my knowledge of math, science, art, entrepreneurship, engineering, and communication. Feel free to contact me and I can pass along any references or show you some examples of my work.

Very knowledgeable of both of Sebastian's needs (geometry and biology)

My son is very standoffish regarding new people. However, he left his first session with Alex yesterday and sang his praises. He said he was cool and went with the flow. I couldn't stop laughing. He said Alex broke it down in a way he could understand and he wants to continue working with him. This is the first time I've used a one-on-one tutor and I am very pleased.
