Hi! My name is Alexis. I am an experienced tutor originally from from Henderson, Nevada. I currently study Engineering Physics at Cornell University.

The challenging classes that I've taken throughout my life have taught me good study tips and solid fundamentals that I love sharing with others. One of the main keys to success is learning to love the challenge!

Hi! My name is Alexis. I am an experienced tutor originally from from Henderson, Nevada. I currently study Engineering Physics at Cornell University.

The challenging classes that I've taken throughout my life have taught me good study tips and solid fundamentals that I love sharing with others. One of the main keys to success is learning to love the challenge!

I began tutoring three years ago and have loved it since. My patience and insight into subjects combined help my students succeed. My primary teaching strategy is to connect the dots and teach fundamental truths rather than simply memorizing formulas. While this approach may initially seem more difficult, both my students and myself have found significantly more long term success.

While I specialize in STEM, I am able to tutor areas such as programming, English, and other niche subjects.

Here are a few things that set me apart:
Taken several higher level mathematics and physics questions
99th percentile ACT and SAT (35 and 2300)
800 on SAT Math II and 5 on Calculus AB and BC.
Years of experience in making math make sense at all levels
Lead Instructor at In-person tutoring facility
Fluent with identifying and targeting gaps in understanding

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at any time and I will get back to you as soon as possible. I would love the pleasure of working with you!

Python

I am working on a Computer Science minor so I spend a lot of my time coding in Python and Java. My classes have taught me fundamental principles on how computers "think" that I love sharing! Once this is understood, programming becomes significantly easier and more fun! I have built several programs and even a fully functional game!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Alexis helped my son with trigonometry functions and vectors. She’s very patient and knowledgeable. In just one session, he was able to grasp the concept. Will definitely use her again. I highly recommend her.

Great Geometry tutor

Alexis was a great match for my smart but unmotivated daughter. My daughter missed several days of school and was significantly behind. She was skeptical of doing an online tutor. Alexis used Skype, which allowed them to share info on their screens. She kept my daughter engaged and did a great job.
