I am a senior graduating this fall with a double major in physics and math from the University of Houston Clear Lake. I am an active participant in the UHCL Astronomy Club and president of the Physics Club. I speak fluent Norwegian and English.

I started tutoring seven years ago. My tutoring experience includes working for Numberworks 'n' Words in the United Arab Emirates and volunteering with Junior Achievement here in Texas. My job in the U.A.E. involved tutoring middle and high school students in math and English. Junior Achievement is a program aimed at improving financial literacy among children. In the last few years I have worked for Wyzant and the University of Houston Clear Lake Math Center.

Subjects

Computer

MATLAB

MATLAB

I received an A in Math Software, a MATLAB based course. I received a broad introduction to working with MATLAB for a variety of purposes. Much of the course was focused on solutions to or analysis of differential equations and chaotic motion. I have also used MATLAB for a mechanics course for my physics degree.

Homeschool

I have worked with several homeschool students in the last few years. Specifically I have a lot of experience working with parents and students to asses what their goals are for math and science and bringing the student up to that level. Some of my students have needed help passing standardized tests in math whereas others have needed help filling in gaps to start college.

As a physics and math major I routinely use the skills taught in algebra 1. I have years of experience tutoring middle and high school students in this topic.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

As a physics major I routinely use the skills taught in algebra 2. I have years of experience tutoring middle and high school students in this topic.
Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus is a basic skill required for a real understanding of most of the hard sciences, especially physics. I use the material taught in calculus courses on a daily basis.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

I received A grades in my general chemistry courses and remember the material very well. I have some experience tutoring in these subjects. Certain physics courses I have taken have given me a deeper understanding of several topics covered by general chemistry courses, such as basic thermodynamics and entropy. I have also taken organic chemistry.
Physics,

Physics

I have a B.S. in math and physics from the University of Houston Clear Lake. About half of the students I have worked with over the last few years have needed help with either AP physics or university physics courses. I have taken some of my students from an F to an A over the course of a couple months.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

I routinely use the content of precalculus courses in my upper-level math and physics courses. Many of the students I tutor either have questions about this class or require occasional reminders on how to apply this content to their other math and science courses.

Differential Equations,

Differential Equations

I routinely use differential equations for my core physics classes. I have taken a course on ordinary differential equations as a math elective. Both ordinary and partial differential equations were covered in physics-oriented math courses required for my physics degree. I am also very familiar with integral transforms and other related subjects.
Finite Math,

Finite Math

The subjects covered in a finite math course are prerequisite knowledge for a wide range of courses I have taken as a math and physics major. I have tutored this subject before and I am familiar with the topics generally covered in finite math courses.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

I received an A in a linear algebra course at Houston Community College. I am happy to provide a transcript. I found the content of the course relatively easy to understand. I think I could be helpful to other students who are struggling with a linear algebra course.

Great tutor

Alex is a superb tutor. My daughter was struggling with calculus and her grades were falling. Alex came along and saved the day. We regularly use him. He is punctual and professional. Alex will be becoming to our house for some time to come because next in line is my son.

Jesus, 10 lessons with Alexander

extremely patient and smart

Awesome guy, very patient and very knowledgeable. Came through in a pinch as well. Will be using him again in the near future. Thanks, Alex!

Kyle, 1 lesson with Alexander

Knowledgeable in Physics

Alex is very knowledgeable in Physics and explains the problems very wel. Very accommodating in times to meet, whether morning or night. Highly recommend him and will use his tutoring services in future. Thank you!!!

Terri, 6 lessons with Alexander

Knowledgeable

Alexander has been great to work with! He has been an incredibly big help in teaching me the missing pieces that I needed to master the material for my college Physics class.

Stephanie (Mom), 28 lessons with Alexander

Clear explanations and thorough review

Alexander takes the time to ensure prior information is understood and retained, and builds on that knowledge. This gives me significantly more confidence in moving forward.

Carole, 3 lessons with Alexander

Very Intelligent and Knowledgeable

Right guy for your Math and even some English tutoring. He is experienced with different math problems and very helpful if you allow him. Keep up the great work Alex!

Drew, 2 lessons with Alexander

Great Teacher!

Alexander B. really helped me understand my calculus homework that I was struggling with for weeks! I feel much better about the subject.

Ashlee, 3 lessons with Alexander

Patient and knowledgeable tutor

Alexander helped me to have a better understanding on Friction , and he was very helpful when i didn't know how to solve the problem.

Edith, 1 lesson with Alexander

Perfect for my son

My 17 yr old was very comfortable with Alexander. He commented on how much he learned in just one lesson. My son is already pretty good at math but he needed the confidence that someone like Alexander gives him going into the SAT.
