Knowledgeable, Patient and gets right to the point.

Alex helped my 3rd grader with memorizing her multiplication tables. She was struggling on her multiplication assessments beforehand. He was very experienced with how to find her strengths and weaknesses. He knew how to gently challenge her and what ways worked best for my daughter. She reacted very well to the tutoring sessions and she was very proud of her passing assessment. It has also helped her confidence level as far as that goes. I plan on using Alex again in the future, maybe regularly. Thank you so much for your help and hard work!

Very Comfortable Session, Very Knowledgeable!

My daughter needed help studying for her ACT, Alex made my daughter feel comfortable instantly. After the session she said he was nice, that's the same thing she would say about Mother Theresa, so believe me that's a BIG compliment.

Very responsive

I appreciate that Alex was able to adjust the schedule on short notice due to our conflict. We had another good lesson and Alex was well prepared and waiting for us, like always. Thank you.
