About Alex

I have 8+ years of private tutoring experience. I am very passionate about math and about my students' progress. Every student has individual knowledge basis, way of thinking and understanding of the subject. When I tutor a student, I first seek to evaluate the students knowledge, identify his/her strengths, and catch potential difficulties in specific areas. Upon assessing the individual students abilities, I develop an individualized approach to help them reach their academic goals. I hope to cultivate confidence in each student to believe in their ability and master the material.

I began tutoring when my daughter started learning algebra in middle school. I found that the curriculum in the schools offered a purely technical approach to problems without fostering excitement about the logical aspects of math, which creates a problem for some students. My approach to teaching aims to develop a deeper understanding of math in students.

I am offering tutoring in all mathematical subjects from curriculum offered in middle and high schools.
I am a laser scientist/engineer designing novel photonic devices. I hold MS in Physics and Math with highest honor; I am married and have two kids, 19 and 12.

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.

Great session

Alex was professional and patient. My son really dislikes Math and I saw how satisfied he felt after our first session with the tutor.
