About Alex


Bio

My name is Alex M. I am excited to help people get a better grasp on reading or writing braille. I am a 2008 graduate of the Oklahoma School for the Blind and was taught there how to read and write braille. I later graduated from Oklahoma Baptist University and am finishing up masters work at Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth. I am currently a pastor at a local church in Hurst TX. My wife and I have been married for almost six years and love to get to know new people, travel, spend time...

My name is Alex M. I am excited to help people get a better grasp on reading or writing braille. I am a 2008 graduate of the Oklahoma School for the Blind and was taught there how to read and write braille. I later graduated from Oklahoma Baptist University and am finishing up masters work at Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth. I am currently a pastor at a local church in Hurst TX. My wife and I have been married for almost six years and love to get to know new people, travel, spend time with our family, and serve others in any way we can.

I believe that I have the ability to help students or adults grasp a better understanding of how braille works and help them to understand how this can help them to be more independent. I began learning braille my second semester of first grade at the Oklahoma School for the Blind. Learning braille as a young person is much more personal and different than the perspective of a traditional VI teacher. In High School I competed in the National Braille Challenge in LA two years in a row and placed in the top three in the state of Oklahoma. I hope that my education and life experience can help you or your child.

Weather you are a student needing some extra help learning the braille code, or you are an adult starting from square one, I would love to help. Please contact me and lets schedule a time a time to start.

Knowledgeable, Patient, & Fun!

Alex has been helping me work on my Braille skills. We started by reviewing my alphabet and Alex is now helping me target areas to work on, memory tricks, and set reasonable learning goals each week. I was unsure about tutoring online, but Alex has consistently come up with some great solutions that make our sessions interactive and will help me with my future goals. I really appreciate Alex's knowledge, sense of humor, and look forward each week to our sessions. Thanks Alex!
