Personal Statement

***My Experience***

In my 10+ years as an educator and tutor I've worked one-on-one with dozens of students on test prep (SAT, ACT, SSAT, ISEE, PSAT, GRE, GMAT, and Regents), academic subject support (math, physics, chemistry, and Spanish), writing, and college application coaching. My students range in age from 10 to 50 and come from diverse educational backgrounds.

I graduated magna cum laude in English from Harvard University, and I have a master's degree from Columbia University, wher...

Reviews

Alex has a profound understanding of not only math but of simplifying it in ways in order to make the student comprehend well. He keeps you involved and goes out of his way to make sure you improve. He is clear and sincerely hopes for the success of his students. What was distinguishing about Alex is his ability to personalize his sessions to the needs of the the student and is always ready to lend a helping hand.

Alex is a very consistent tutor he responds almost instantly to every message I sent him and he is very flexible with meeting times and meets exactly when he tells you he can. Alex is definitely a people person and is someone that I was very comfortable tutoring with. Alex is a very knowledgeable person. Alex helped me get accepted to into the D.C internship International Business and Government Affairs program. He asked questions that made me think critically about myself, which made me explore certain aspects about myself that I?ve never even considered before. This helped me answer specific questions that the internship application was asking for successfully. Alex?s writing and editing skills are phenomenal he is extremely skilled in this and put in a lot of time outside our meeting sessions editing. Overall Alex is a great guy and I would recommend him to anyone!

I have worked with many tutors to help me with my college essays, but Alex is by far the best. Unlike many other tutors, he really cares about the final product that is put out. Alex will spend extra time and go the extra mile to be sure that the essay is perfect. Alex will go through the essay with you to make sure that it is grammatically correct and as powerful as possible. So far, I have worked with Alex for two of my college essays. Alex helped both turn out better than I expected. I will definitely be using him in the future!!!

Alex was the perfect tutor for me as I looked to boost my math GRE score. He provided me with high-quality practice problems, a clear plan of attack for each area I was struggling with, and the confidence to do well on test day. Because he is such a whiz with these exams, he is able to explain any problem in three or four different ways, meaning he can really explain it to anyone. He was also exceptionally personable and accommodating of my schedule, very flexible and fair with pricing. I was actually quite skeptical of finding a tutor online like this, but my experience with Alex was a slam dunk, and I think significantly better and more affordable than the private companies. If you're really focusing on math for the GRE (or anything really), hire Alex!

Alex was very thorough with the math topic we covered. I learned a lot from him. I'm looking forward to our next session. I would certainly recommend Alex to anyone needing tutoring.

Our daughter has benefited greatly from a dozen tutoring sessions with Alex. We engaged him originally to help her prepare for the SAT, which he has done expertly, and he has helped her complete various school assignments as well. Coupled with subject expertise and teaching skills, he has been sensitive to our daughter's particular learning styles, strengths and weaknesses and has adapted his approaches accordingly. He has expertly and kindly brought out the best of her as a learner and in the process has boosted her self esteem and consequently, her school performance.

Alex has been teaching my son difficult Physics concepts for the SAT subject test. This requires teaching complex concepts. Alex has a great way of explaining them by using analogies well. He's a great teacher and a nice person!
- Tamar E. from Brooklyn, NY
Alex was exactly what I hoped for. He arrived on time, totally prepared with extra study materials for me to take home as part of my homework! He was focused, detailed, and easy to understand while reviewing GRE math principles and problem solving techniques. Warm, professional nature. Easy to talk to. As someone who has taught and tutored before I am especially impressed by his high level of organization and his focus on student needs. Great experience. Will work with him again.

The best mentor I have ever had. Spent 1 hour with him on my GRE reading comprehension, very friendly and patient teaching style, important and productive test-hacking tracks. Outstanding skills on how to read the article smart in a limited time. He is the one who really cares about helping students to ace their goal. Definitely recommended!
