Hi! My name is Alex and I'm a fifth-year PhD student in Economics at West Virginia University. I was granted a Bachelor's of Science in Economics with a Math Minor from West Chester University of Pennsylvania in 2018. I recently received a Master's Degree in Economics as part of my progression toward my PhD. Ever since the beginning of my college career, I've had the explicit goal of getting a PhD in Economics and becoming a college professor. I graduated with a 3.96 GPA in my major courses,...

Alexander has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering **7 questions** submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.

## Fantastic

I've never used a programming language like R Studio before and Alex did a wonderful job at teaching me how to write/use the code, visualize data, explain that data, and so on. Only took us a few sessions for me to get a hang of it. Highly recommended.

Connor, 3 lessons with Alexander

## very patient, very clear

Clear explanation of topics and willing to go over problems multiple times until I understood them. Made complicated concepts and problems very clear.

Daniel, 4 lessons with Alexander

## Very knowledgeable and responds quickly!

Alexander identified and fixed a problem in my R code in 20 minutes that I had been laboring over for days. He responded to all of my emails immediately, and I plan to work with him going forward. A real asset!

Holly, 1 lesson with Alexander

## Unflappable, super knowledgeable and patient tutor

Alex was very easy to work with, great communicator, and taught me everything I needed to know to create my Rstudio project. I would not hesitate to recommend him highly.

Kristine, 2 lessons with Alexander

## This guy is brilliant!

We covered Non-Nash Outcomes, Trembling-Hand, and Mixed Strategies. I really like the recordings that come along with the session, so it's easy to review the material a few times.

Susan, 5 lessons with Alexander

## Excellent tutor for upper division courses

I have received tutoring from Alexander in two upper division economics courses and his help has been invaluable to me. As a PhD candidate, Alexander has both strong knowledge of high level Econ courses and excellent teaching skills. I have found that he explains complicated concepts and mathematical operations in an easy to understand way. Having worked with other Econ tutors on my Macro Theory course prior to finding Alexander, I found it difficult to find one who knew this material well. I recommend those who need help with both introduction and upper division Econ courses work with Alexander, as he can assist you at any level with ease!

Davis, 13 lessons with Alexander

## great teacher, extremely knowledgeable

There’s no words to describe how helpful his lesson was! It was only an hour and a half and it was so fruitful! He doesn’t just give you a lesson, but ensures you are moving at a healthy pace and also ensures you are grasping a proper understanding. Thank you so much for all the help!

Jacob, 2 lessons with Alexander

## Highly knowledgeable and competent tutor who responds quickly to inquiries

I have have 3 lessons with Alexander and booked him repeatedly because of his technical knowledge, pedagogical skills, and timely response time. I value his ability to digest a problem and then kindly teach me how to solve it. I will be booking again! Highly recommend

## The Best Economics Tutor on Wyzant

Alexander is the best economics tutor on Wyzant, hands down. I'd go as far as to say he's one of the best tutors, period. Thanks to Alexander's quick thinking, patience, and meticulous attention to detail, I was able to solidify such a firm grasp of economics that I went from being confused at the start of the semester to becoming the top student in both Micro and Macroeconomics. Alexander's instruction was superior to reading the book, attending class, or even attending a study group. Alexander goes right down to business, which is one thing that I highly respect about him. A lot of other tutors will dilly-dally and take forever to explain one topic. Alexander can cover multiple complex concepts back to back with extreme precision and speed, which astonished me the first time I saw him do it. I cannot recommend Alexander any higher; he's fantastic.
