About Alexis


Bio

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.

Dude totally knows his stuff!!! GREAT TEACHER.

He knows Java backwards & forwards, and gives great advice, particularly on standard Java practice. Very good at explaining things. Yes, I will be using him again!

Laurel, 7 lessons with Alexis

Patient & Well Versed

I am much more confident after just the first lesson with Alexis. He helped me prepare for an upcoming test. He was punctual and knowledgeable. Highly recommend.

Dionne, 3 lessons with Alexis

Knowledgeable tutor

Alexis helped me understand some difficult problems by breaking down the problems into simpler approaches. He emphasized understanding math concepts rather than memorizing formulas. Thank you, Alexis!

Kelli, 2 lessons with Alexis

Experienced Coder

Got my basics cleared from Alexis. I am self-learner but sometimes your Questions are uncleared or you wonder why I am not able to get through. Tutors like Alexis are best guide who not only go extra miles but also makes sure that your concepts are cleared. Once your basics are cleared then you look for Advance coding. Alexis is a perfect match for Beginners & Professionals.

Anirudh, 1 lesson with Alexis

A very cautious dude and a very good lecture

During his lecture, we learned a lot of things about his C program. Even though it is long, we still made logic work for a short time. Detail fixing is excellent.

David, 1 lesson with Alexis

Knowledgeable and patient in Java!

Alexis was able to help me focus and articulate the problem I was trying to solve, he helped me conform to java standards and enabled me to code my project in a way that was understandable!

Joe, 10 lessons with Alexis

Java Gurru's

This man rock's big time. Mr. Alex is an online dictionary of knowledge in Java. I was working with Java/Netbeans where I was attempting to complete the week 3 Lab. After reaching out to over 15 Instructors Mr. A.leix accepted, and it works well. I recommend Alexis any day.

Paul, 1 lesson with Alexis

Excellent teacher!

Alexis has helped me boost my grade in my Computer Programming class, and has helped in simplifying code that was previously complicated and confusing. With only two lessons, I have a much clearer understanding of reading and writing code. He is patient and ensures that you fully comprehend what he is teaching before it is used.

Evelyn, 1 lesson with Alexis

Very knowlegable and Easy to Follow

Alexis worked with my daughter on Calc AB. My daughter is a visual learner and he used graphs to help explain concepts, which made is easier for her to understand.
