About Alexandra

As a SUNY at Buffalo graduate with a Bachelor's degree in International Studies and a background in Journalism, I have dedicated the past five years honing my own academic and personal skills in the hopes of sharing with those in need of my guidance.

I realized I enjoy tutoring after being asked to review my nephew's homework. I eventually noticed the same mistakes with each math sheet I checked, and after he mentioned he didn't understand his teacher, I decided to teach him myself. I then helped my niece study for a social studies test. Rather than simply memorize dates and facts, I took the time to explain the concept of what she was learning, so she would understand the main ideas. Usually, her social studies test grades are average, but after a long night, she got a 97.

It is easy to dismiss tutoring as just a second attempt at teaching the same material. How can you possibly understand information on any subject if you are taught the same way twice? Not one person learns the same, nor should we expect that. A tutoring experience is just as much for the tutor as it is for the tutee, which is why I believe it is up to the tutor to acknowledge an individual's needs and implement proper teaching techniques to achieve set goals. I might not be a formally trained tutor with a certificate to show for it, but I do have real people with real results as proof of success.

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.

Spanish

I have several years of Spanish language experience and studied Abroad in Salamanca, Spain. My writing and reading skills are superior level, while I can also speak at an advanced level. I haven't spoken in some time since I do not know many Spanish speakers outside of college classes, but I am more than capable of helping a student understand the core of the language.
