Last sign in: 4 days ago


I have been teaching private lessons since 2001 and I am currently available to teach lessons online or in my office. As a professor , I have helped students in a number of computer science and math oriented areas including standardizes tests, as well as helping them have the confidence to overcome struggles with difficult subjects.

I believe that learning should be fun and engaging, and that no one perfect method exists to teach all students. During our lessons I try to take note of whats working and whats not, and when I find types of examples that work, I keep using them to help you accelerate your learning .

· GMAT · In studio Where to start. Alex is a just a great all around person. He makes learning fun. As long as you put in the time and effort he will guide you through to where you need to be. Never a dull moment, as his lessons bring out the best in you. I would highly recommend going to him, as his style is very different than other tutors or professors. He encourages you to engage in what you are studying; to be proactive and animated, which ultimately leads to results, while having fun in the process. His style is the way learning in general should be. His techniques will train you to remain calm in the face of adversity. You will not regret going to Alex. Again, as long as you put in the time, he will help you get the results you want.

· Microsoft Excel · Online While seeking guidance on excel and troubleshooting issues, Alex was able to provide a clear explanation on the theory of formulas and how they are conditioned for specialized reporting. Not only will I continue to seek Alex's expertise in the future, but I highly recommend him to anyone who needs any guidance with Excel.

· Java · In home Great teacher! Alex stepped in to help my teenage son at the last minute, worked well with him, and helped him get through road blocks he was encountering. I wish I'd found Alex early in the semester! I will definitely ask for his help again and would highly recommend him to others.
