About Alex


Bio

Having graduated with a 3.95 GPA degree in Applied Mathematics at the Oregon Institute of Technology in 2018, I'm more than happy to try and help people with math. As someone who loves tutoring and finds it a very rewarding task, I have applied and been accepted into a Masters degree program in Math Education.

My experience includes helping hundreds of students with: Algebra 1, Algebra 2, PreAlgebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, PreCalculus and Calculus in one-on-one and group sessions.

People struggle with math and that's mostly because, truthfully, math is difficult. It's a challenging subject for almost everyone and sometimes you just need a little help to get you over a hurdle that is blocking your understanding.

Some teachers and textbooks seem to want to hide the answers from students in the hope the student will discover the solution without any extra help. Sadly, in my experience, this approach often fails even if the student only needs very minor assistance to get going and it definitely fails if the student doesn't even know where to begin.

Math is seldom taught well in the typical classroom; there's rarely any interest in or excitement for the subject and the deeper meanings are often overlooked. It ends up being taught as a big game of memorization and 'tricks' to 'get the right answer.' Math is so much more than memorization and so I try to tutor in such a way as to gain a strong foundational understanding and build from there, based on the needs, desires, abilities and interests of the student. I'll answer any questions you have as best I can and I'll even go through every part of every step of every problem, if that will help. No detail is too small to me and, if you've got a question, you deserve an answer.

Please feel free to contact me at any time.

Subjects

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebra is the class where math starts to look at some more complicated topics. It is very important to have a solid foundation in algebra, as math is a cumulative topic. If you have any questions with any problems, or want to cover any topics, don't be afraid to ask! I'll spend as much time as you need until you feel you understand the topic.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is the subject I've tutored the most in, so I'm extremely comfortable and knowledgeable with the types of questions that teachers ask of their students. Having a good foundation in Algebra will go a very long way, even in calculus, so don't be afraid to ask if you need help!
Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus is the first math class where people know it's reputation: it's a difficult topic but ultimately allows us to answer some amazing questions and even helped us get to the moon! I have tutored calculus students for hundreds of hours, and I can help with any concepts you might be having with this topic. It's an important class, so don't be afraid to seek out help when things don't make sense to you!
Precalculus

Precalculus

Precalculus is an important class, especially for those going into calculus. I've tutored hundreds of hours in this subject (in addition to tutoring in calculus), so I know where to focus what you'll need to know not just for your tests, but also for any calculus class you end up taking!

There's no doubt that Trig is a difficult class, but I can help you with any tricky questions you're stuck on or concepts you may have difficulty grasping. Oftentimes teachers don't go into the detail and time required to understand the topics, but I'll spend as much time as necessary until you feel comfortable enough to proceed!

Great Tutor!

My son has used Alex twice and says that he loves Alex and he is a great tutor and actually thinks he makes learning Algebra II fun!! Alex is also very responsive. I originally chose Alex because of his reviews and his last minute availability. The next time I reached out he got right back to me and had the day and time available that my son needed to prepare for a quiz the next day.

Excellent math tutor

Alex was a great tutor for my 16 year old daughter who was struggling with Algebra 2. It just one lesson, it began to click for my daughter. He was very knowledgeable, animated, and encouraging. She left the lesson with a confidence I haven’t seen all year! He was worth every penny!

Melissa, 1 lesson with Alex

Alex is an excellent tutor!

Alex recently helped my son prepare for an Algebra II exam. He was patient and enthusiastic and able to explain challenging concepts in a way that made them more easily understood.

Knowledgeable and great at explaining!

He was really helpful with Trigonometry identities and helped me with a word problem I always have trouble with. Will definitely use Alex again. I really appreciated that even though he had a power outage, he found a way to still meet with me.

Deborah, 12 lessons with Alex

Flexible and knowledgeable tutor

Alex helps our son with Alegbra 1 and makes concepts easy to understand. We have used Alex 4 times and plan to continue with him as needed. He helped us complete an assignment that would've taken me hours in under an hour. Thank you Alex!
