My name is Alex M., and I’m a 2020 magna cum laude graduate from the University of Oklahoma, earning bachelors’ degrees in physics and mathematics with a minor in computer science. Because mathematics is the foundation for all the sciences, I believe it takes flexibility and a variety of approaches to fully grasp its principles. That empowers students to excel.

My name is Alex M., and I’m a 2020 magna cum laude graduate from the University of Oklahoma, earning bachelors’ degrees in physics and mathematics with a minor in computer science. Because mathematics is the foundation for all the sciences, I believe it takes flexibility and a variety of approaches to fully grasp its principles. That empowers students to excel.

In my experience teaching both peers and younger students, I find that the conventional approach is not always the one that clicks with a student. That’s why I use examples and everyday metaphors to bring understanding to complex concepts. Students excel when they have a true understanding of the ideas underpinning math, physics, and computer science. The idea is to learn the principles underlying a subject in such a way that you can look at a problem and figure out how to solve it.

While taking the courses in my degree programs, I spent considerable time exploring different ways to approach the material to get a deeper feel for it. I used those experiences to explain to peers what was going on under the surface, which often led to a-ha moments for those with whom I worked.

I am flexible and can work with students both in-person and virtually. I can tailor instruction to meet both immediate and long-term goals and welcome the use of resources related to the student’s immediate coursework as well as providing supplemental lessons from my own library. Recommendations from parents pertaining to materials and approaches are always welcome. I respond within 72 hours to tutoring requests.
