About Alex

Hi, thank you for visiting my page!

I am a graduate of Kalamazoo College, a private liberal arts school in MIchigan. While there, I studied mathematics and Chinese. Studying math and teaching math are two different things though, and luckily I have a lot of experience with the latter. I worked in our college's math help center, where I tutored students in calculus, probability, and statistics. I also volunteered at a local elementary school in their PALS program, where I helped younger students improve their math and science understanding.

After graduating from college, I moved to Taiwan and taught English for six years. It was really challenging to find ways to engage the students despite their limited English vocabulary, but I have become a more creative and well-rounded teacher as a result. I love working with kids and I excel at it because I have a lot of energy and enthusiasm for the subjects.

If you would like LSAT tutoring, I would be happy to help as well. I was active in my college's pre-law society, designed and taught a free LSAT course for our members, and scored a 170 on the test myself. Free tip: Get really fast at sudokus! Good luck.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Chinese

I minored in Chinese in college and studied abroad in Beijing. After college, I lived in Taiwan for six years where I taught English and interacted with the populace on a daily basis. I am a fluent speaker of the language and I also know how to read and write.

I must say that Alex has been awesome. We needed someone to jump in and help immediately and he didnt hesitate. My son did well in Calc 1 with a previous tutor but he moved away. We needed someone to step in and help with Calc 2 and Alex was well prepared. He even went the extra mile to help my son understand previous concepts he had not done well with and helped him to close that gap. I am p
