About Alex

I'm a recent college graduate from Davidson College where I studied Sociology, Political Science, and US History. While at Davidson, I worked during summers as a full-time teacher for under-privileged elementary school students in English, Writing, and US History. I also tutored individual college students on proofreading and writing techniques. My reputation as a successful tutor grew to the extent that multiple professor personally recommended their students to work with me to improve their writing skills.

As a tutor, my goal is to provide my students with the tools necessary to critically engage and interact with new ideas and information they are learning. I push those I teach to think clearly, speak precisely, and learn openly.

I have over four years of experience of teaching proofreading and writing from the collegiate to elementary level.

My love for history started at a young age and has extended to this day. My college courses focused on American History, political science, and the ways in which current events are shaped by past events. During my time as a high school student in Chesterfield county achieved a perfect score on the AP US History test and scored in the top 98 percentile on the US Government Test.

I am willing and able to help anyone who wants to learn. I do this not for the money, but for the chance to provide the tools, knowledge, and experience needed to help them along their own academic journey.
