I have tutored college ESL students in English comprehension and literature classes. I am familiar with both APA and MBA formats for reports and papers. I am knowledgeable in general history, government and political science, and I use Word and Exel on a regular basis. I also recently earned my Bachelor's of Science with an emphasis in Human Resources.

I let my students find the information that they need for themselves. I believe that if a student isn't pushed to find the answers for themselves, they will not improve or learn crucial study and research skills. I proofread and then discuss with students how they think they can improve what they are writing. I will NEVER do a student's work for them.

In addition to academics, I do "crafty" tutoring, too. I know cross stitch and satin stitch, and I have been using a sewing machine and serger for over 20 years.

Very positive and patient!!!

I was looking for a tutor for my little girl and I found Ms.Alex all of her education and experience really stuck out to me. After seeing her work with my daughter I knew I made the right choice. she is very patient and teaches in a very positive attitude which makes my child feel positive to learn. She cares about your child learning as much as you do. So there for I'm very happy with my choice of having Ms.Alex as my child's tutor.
