About Alex

Hi! I'm Alex. I'm a recent graduate of the College of William and Mary, where I earned a degree in Applied Mathematics and a minor in biochemistry. I began tutoring my peers at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, where several teachers told me that I have a knack for breaking down mathematical concepts. I've worked with elementary through high school students. I know that, to a lot of people, math can be really intimidating, so I work to make it a less fearsome prospect. I work hard to understand each student's individual learning style in order to most effectively teach them, and focus on showing the student how to do problems independently rather than teaching through rote memorization. One of the best moments for me, as a tutor, is to see the AHA! moment when a student suddenly grasps a difficult concept.

In 2009, I placed 2nd on the state level of the MathCounts competition and was a member of the national team representing Virginia. I have been tutoring for the last six years and can teach at various levels, ranging from pre-algebra to calculus. Additionally, I scored a perfect 800 on the math SAT and the SAT II math subject test. I was recently hired as a teaching assistant at a math enrichment program.

I attended Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology and scored a 770 out of 800 on the Physics SAT subject test. I have a strong background in science, having graduated from William and Mary with a minor in biochemistry.

Please, don't hesitate to contact me. I'm happy to answer any questions which you might have, and I have flexible hours with regard to tutoring availability.
