I'm Alex S., a 28 year old with a passion for math, and a graduate from the University of Texas at Austin with a BS in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I have been tutoring high school and college students in numerous math courses, especially calculus, for over 5 years, yet growing up I found myself informally tutoring peers as well. I believe this experience has allowed me to be a very patient and understanding tutor; I have experienced a wide range in student skills over the years and am always happy to help. Many of my high school students have continued working with me even until their final college math course, with great success.

For the past 5 years I worked as the Lead Instructor at a Mathnasium center. My time was split between working with 2-4 students at once, and lots of one-on-one private tutoring, particularly in AP and college level Calculus. I am very well versed in all other high school math topics, including Algebra I and II, Geometry, Precalculus, and SAT/ACT prep for those looking to improve their test scores and college admission applications.

I often encounter students with generally good knowledge and understanding of what they are learning in class who can solve simple problems, but when it comes to homework or exams they might struggle. This is an issue I can help with. I aim to extend a student's knowledge by helping them to think critically about math, and understand these topics more deeply, so that they can go forward and solve the more difficult problems independently in the future.

I'm very open to adapting my tutoring to fit a student's unique situation and schedule, whether that means weekly sessions to focus on homework, or last minute sessions for an important exam coming up. I am happy to help a student with learning gaps, or someone looking to get ahead in their studies. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to schedule a lesson, I will make sure to respond to any inquiries in a timely manner. I look forward to hearing from any prospective students!
