Kalamazoo College (Mathematics)
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. Hi, thank you for visiting my page!

If the lesson is shorter than 1.5 hours or if you want to meet far outside of Chattanooga, then the rate will be more than I have listed above.
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 praying his next test will be a vast improvement in understanding and grasping Calc 2. We plan using Alex for the rest of my sons Engineering degree. Would recommend him to everyone. I like that he keeps me informed and is willing to reach out if he has issues with my son.
Helped me understand statistic problems using z-scores and Central Limit Theorem. He explains things very clearly. I am very thankful I found him before my final because he helped me get an A in the class.
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.
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.
