About Alex

I have taught math and science for nearly 20 years. Before that, I worked for NASA as a research associate at the Goddard Space Flight Center and later at the University of Washington as coordinator for the NASA Educator Resource Center. Currently I am certificated as a Washington State teacher.

I enjoy working with kids, upper elementary through high school, on both day-to-day homework tasks and skill mastery as well as long term academic growth and organizational development. Though math and science are my specialties, I am well-versed on most subjects and can help students facing a wide range of academic obstacles.

In addition to a mastery of this material for my own work, I have many years of experience planning and implementing lessons and activities designed to make these concepts accessible to students.

You've got nothing to lose by contacting me to ask for help. I'm open to short term homework help solutions as well as long term plans for keeping you on track, getting you caught up or advancing you beyond.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Prealgebra

I have been teaching math and science for nearly two decades, both in the classroom and as a outside specialist and tutor. I'm happy to customize a program for your child to help them achieve more in pre-algebra and to prepare them for the upcoming year.
