Overview

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 .

Alex is a very good teacher. He managed to make things simple and was fun. He was even understanding when the Takelessons website made things difficult.

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.

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.

Alex is a great instructor. He helped me understand certain areas of php that I really needed help in. He did so, in an easy to understand way and I now know and understand the material.

Alex is amazing. Alex is very knowledgeable in SQL and Java . He definitely understands how to teach and get his point across. He his very flexible with scheduling. Alex picks up for me where my professors have missed or didn't explain well.

Alex was friendly and well organized. To make sure I got what he showed me, I too needed to do a couple exercises. That was good. For a first lesson, with my prior knowledge uncertain, the session went pretty well. Also liked his ability to 'tailor' the excel functions to things of my concern.
