Mathematics PhD Massachusetts Institute of Technology
ExperienceI developed my Math skills through patience and enthusiasm for the subject, and I impart these skills and qualities to my students by helping them work through Math problems step-by-step. This is a systematic, reliable process which gets fast results and brings confidence even to students who have feared Math all their lives. I have used it to help people in danger of failing their Math courses to end their semesters with top grades, and I can do the same for you.
During my PhD, I had four years of experience teaching Mathematics at one of the top Math departments in the country, but I've found one-on-one tutoring to be the most rewarding teaching setting for me and my students. I also love statistics, programming and unix system administration, and have extensive experience in helping people with these subjects, using the same methods.

Alec was a phenomenal tutor! I came to him equipped with only a review book, not really knowing what I need to learn for my AP Calc BC exam, and in a few months he was able to teach me what is equivalent to a whole semester of college calculus. I went into the AP test confident in coursework he had taught me. He not only knows the subject, but is very passionate about it, and it shows through in his teaching.
great tutor ! very patient and will always go through every problem step by step just to make sure you understand the problems. easy 5/5
Alex has an innate ability & passion for teaching in a meaningful way to simplify the learning process for complex project tasks…You truly walk away from the tutoring sessions prepared to defend on your own. There are many tutors who claim to help you with Python given their knowledge of other programming languages. DO NOT MAKE THAT MISTAKE….Alex, is a Python master and will offer you a better learning experience. He comes to the tutoring sessions well prepared to help.
