About Alexis

Excellent tutoring for excellent results!

Everyone deserves a tutor who will not only guide them in their studies, but also push them toward academic success, be their own personal cheerleader, and believe that they can achieve their goals! With me, you will find that tutor. No matter your age or level of math, it is always a great idea to have someone to help you through it and support you all the way. With my sessions, I give 100% to my students through attention and genuine care to see them excel!

My name is Lexi and I am working on my B.S. in Economics and Mathematics at St. Mary's University. I specialize my tutoring in mathematics but am able to help with a variety of subjects. I achieved the award of Mu Alpha Theta in high school which is earned by taking 5 years of math in high school and not dropping below a 90 average. I am currently a senior at my university and vice president of St. Mary's Society of Mathematicians (Math Club!). I have freelance tutored in the past, assisting others in various math levels such as pre-calculus, algebra I, SAT tutoring, geometry, and elementary math . In the past I have volunteered with a Vacation Bible School which gave me experience in educating younger students (aged 6-12).

In addition, I have recently been accepted into the McNair Scholarship program which is geared toward preparing undergraduates for graduate school to receive their PhD. Through the program I am researching Statistics with a focus on modeling economic equations. Also, I have interned at the American Economics Association Summer Program (AEASP) where I had extensive training and presented research at the AEA Pipeline Conference.

For tutoring I ask that the student tells me about the topics you would like to cover (although it is not necessary) before hand. We would meet in a public area such as a Starbucks, library, etc. for safety reasons for both you and I. If acceptable (August through April), I ask that we meet at St. Mary's University Library. During our session we will go over the material topic by topic. We will usually go through the material taught in class and if a student doesn't understand a certain concept, I will help shine the light on the topic. I will explain how to go about solving simpler problems and we will work our way to more complex ones. I plan to completely cover any topics the student would like. We will walk through examples together and examine how to approach various sorts of the problems. Any other sort of assistance that you may need such as a project or homework can be brought up as well! The session is planned to revolve around you and your needs.

Group tutoring sessions are offered at a discount!

Thank you so much for your time and interest! If you have any questions please feel free to send me a message. Thank you and have a lovely day!

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra is the foundation for any mathematical level above it.We expand, we simplify, we solve. We begin to recognize techniques that help us simplify by combining like terms (and knowing how they're alike!) and using order of operations. The all-important part is solving X, and knowing how to do so. In Algebra I we explore problem solving, inequalities & absolute values, linear equations/ slope, systems of equations, laws of logs & exponents, rationals, quadratics, and radicals.

I received an A in Algebra 1 as well as additional tutoring/assisting my peers throughout high school as well as college.

Bible Studies

I have assisted in a Vacation Bible School every summer as a leader helping children understand the stories of Christ. In addition, I have attended a Catholic institution ever since kindergarden, which accumulates to 14 years surrounded by biblical references and taking various religion/Catholicism courses. Also, I am Catholic and have a great understanding of the Word of the Lord.

Elementary (K-6th)

Throughout high school I have assisted in elementary and junior high tutoring (especially in math and science). Through WyzAnt, I have been approved in elementary math and science as well. During my summers for the past 6 years I have additionally helped tutor younger children in summer camps. I have been told that I bring a sense of enjoyment to learning from various parents.

Elementary Math

Whether it may be leaning fractions to multiplication to simply distinguishing shapes, I can absolutely help with your elementary math! Through patience and a positive attitude, I guide students to a better understanding toward negative numbers, rounding numbers, prime and composite numbers, rational and irrational numbers, and anything else that they may have on their plate!

I have assisted with elementary mathematics assignments for the past 5 years and always bring an excitement for math for younger students!

Microsoft Publisher

I have worked as a bookkeeper to advertise for a company using this application. I have made many advertisements pertaining to school using Publisher as well. If you are interested in making mailing labels, posters/flyers, articles, or brochures, I am able to help!

Prealgebra

Pre algebra is the foundation of mathematics. It is less of how well you can calculate (which is still important!) but rather of how well you understand why math is set up in that way. Whether it comes to understanding various properties, to how graphs and functions work, to fundamentals of inequalities and equations, I can help! I have assisted in pre algebra for the last 5 years and continue to learn various teaching techniques that will ensure you a wonderful pre algebra learning experience!

Softball

I have played softball with my schools starting from 7th grade until my senior year in high school. During my high school years, on the varsity team, we won 3 regional championships as well as have placed 1st in our league 3 times. Through these years, I have quickly learned effective drills and training techniques that could help any softball player grow as an athlete.

Study Skills

I have taken multiple classes that involved study methods and time management for various classes as well as general study tips. The study skills I have learned vary from reading material (skimming, highlighting, key words, key phrases, etc.), when notecards are used best, how to make exceptional study guides, and other studying skills.

Knowledgeable, patient amazing algebra tutor! — Amazing and patient! She helped me understand what I was doing incorrectly in the problems and how to solve them without just giving away the answers, but making me figure it out with her. She is the absolute best and I can't wait until our next session! ...
