4.0 GPA and Math Competition Winner
4.0 GPA and Math Competition Winner
I have a passion for Math. I have been teaching and tutoring part time for the last 25 years. While in college, I was on the Putnam Intercollegiate Math Competition team for 3 consecutive years, and won several math competitions. I had a 4.0 GPA in math as an undergraduate (graduating with more than twice the number of required credit hours in math). I also obtained a perfect score in Computer Science (20 out of 20) while a student at the University Pierre and Marie Curie, Paris, France. I...
I have a passion for Math. I have been teaching and tutoring part time for the last 25 years. While in college, I was on the Putnam Intercollegiate Math Competition team for 3 consecutive years, and won several math competitions. I had a 4.0 GPA in math as an undergraduate (graduating with more than twice the number of required credit hours in math). I also obtained a perfect score in Computer Science (20 out of 20) while a student at the University Pierre and Marie Curie, Paris, France. I enjoy explaining math to others and sharing the excitement that I have about the subject.
I received perfect scores on SAT Math Level 1 (800/800) , SAT Math Level 2 (800/800), Praxis II Mathematics: Content Knowledge (200/200), and Praxis II Computer Science (200/200).
Besides regular math courses, I have taught problem-solving classes to prepare for Mathcounts, the Math League Contest, the Math Kangaroo Competition, the American Mathematics Competition (AMC 8, 10, and 12), the Harvard-MIT Mathematics Tournament, and the American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME) -- these classes prepare kids to go on the USA and International Mathematical Olympiads.
Our experience with Alexis was absolutely outstanding. My son was struggling with a higher-end math course in college, necessary for his curriculum, and laboring with a less-than-ideal professor. My son began sessions a few weeks into the semester, and they prevented what would otherwise have been a disaster. Alexis is a truly gifted individual, with an uncanny natural mathematical ability combined with the rare talent of being able to convey complex ideas in a manner that makes them accessible and understandable by the student. Additionally, Alexis is personable, punctual, meticulous in responding to contacts, and very easy to talk to. Should my son encounter difficulties in future courses, I know where we will turn. I would heartily recommend him as a Class-A, top-of-the-line tutor.Scott, 10 lessons with Alexis

I learned about swing and graphics from him very well. He understands the context of Java Swing really well. He is very patient and thorough. Overall, he is a great teacher. Most tutors can’t teach swing and Graphics.Chandra, 3 lessons with Alexis

We are the parent of the student. From the feedback from Alexis, the student is having problem with some basic understandings. This exactly agrees with our assessment/feelings. It is very helpful that Alexis helps the student build a more solid foundation.Dengwei, 11 lessons with Alexis
Very knowledgeable tutor
Alexis has helped me grasp concepts in graduate level engineering courses and has always responded to me in a timely manner. He is very knowledgeable and will give you time to understand the concepts before moving forward. I'm looking forward to more sessions with him in the future.Shivam, 10 lessons with Alexis
He helped me with a very, very challenging assignment. I learned so freaking much it is hard to describe it all. He knows how to analyze and break things down so that you can follow the line of reasoning. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Would happily take him again!Caleb, 2 lessons with Alexis
