Megumi O. says, "My son studied outside U.S before we moved to here,where he is now a freshman in high school. For the first few weeks, he couldn’t got well because he had learned a different Math curriculum in his International School that follows International Baccalaureate Diploma. He needed help and fortunately we found Alex. My son studied for one hour with Alex as a trial session. He provided concise and understandable explanations. Over time, Math became easier and fun subject for him so much so that he even likes Math and enjoy it now. In the end of semester1, he finished with the best grade. Then he received a important letter from his school district yesterday. They are offering an advanced Math course for him in this summer. Of course my son will register this course and he’ll do his best effort in it. If we couldn’t met Alex, my son’s grade is still C or D now and he didn’t receive that letter. While also being a remarkable Math tutor, Alex has also provide to be effective in tutoring other subjects, such as language arts, biology, and even debate and public speaking. We truly appreciate the work and effort Alex has put into improving my son. " Read more

Hi, My name is Catherine. I have over 8 years worth of general tutoring experience. I also have a bachelor's and Masters in computer science. I like to create lesson plans that are catered to my students needs. I know each student is not a one size fits all. I also like to create fun lessons to keep my students engaged and think that learning can be fun. My favorite part of this job is seeing when my students have those light bulb moments, where they finally understand a topic that they found difficult.

Reviews for Santa Clara math tutors

Recent success stories from people in the Santa Clara area.
David M.
Fedor tutored my daughter in Calculus this year. She was really struggling with the more advanced concepts and her grades were suffering. After just a few sessions with Fedor, her understanding improved immensely. He explains calculus concepts in a way that just clicks for her. She is now excelling in class thanks to the solid foundation he helped her build. Fedor is patient and wants his students to truly comprehend the material, not just memorize formulas. My daughter's confidence is through the roof thanks to his dedicated teaching and encouragement. I highly recommend Fedor for any student struggling with calculus. His tutoring makes a huge difference and gets results. 5 stars!

Working with Alex on SAT Math, and Highschool math up to Pre Calcus was very interactive. Interactive in the sense that each type of problem we worked on was realistically put, giving a clear picture of what was being solved. Each method was not simply taught like a formula, the way he taught it gave a clear understanding of what was going on. Working on Math with Alex was a great experience as it provided me to view each and every single problem through a variety of perspectives, I wish I had known of before. Since, 9th grade I despised math because I could not understand the material, but later after being tutored by Alex, my opinion and my view on Math completely changed. I started seeing problems as a fun challenge, instead of a chore. I recommend Alex to people who want to excel, people who need a push to start.
