About this tutor

SAT troubles? Struggling through an AP class? Want one-on-one guidance during the age of COVID and online classes? Get an experienced, professional tutor to help you achieve your goals and take the monotony out of learning.

I’m Alexander, a senior at Carnegie Mellon University studying mathematics and computational finance. I have professional experience teaching dozens of students over hundreds of hours in both the SAT and ACT as well as the AP curriculum. Whether you’re a newcomer to these tests, or a veteran trying to squeeze out every possible point towards a perfect score, I can help you achieve the results you need.

Having helped dozens of students increase their scores by 150 SAT / 4 ACT points or more, as well having myself scored in the 99% percentile on both exams (1550 and 36), I have the results to back up my methodology.

There are plenty of myths about the SAT and ACT out there – from misconceptions about them being a type of IQ test (they're not), to questions about whether you can even prepare for them (you can), to false impressions that the topics on the tests are random and different from year to year (they're not).

Both these two tests, as well as the ten AP exams I have experience teaching, are a series of predictable, consistent question types that can be solved with smart preparation and sufficient practice -- as well as a tutor to help you learn what they are and explain things along the way.

While my specialty lies in test preparation, particularly the SAT/ACT exams, I am also experienced in helping students of all ages, from elementary schoolers to high school seniors, with general coursework and learning objectives. Feel free to reach out and discuss your particular situation and needs.

All students and parents can expect a detailed weekly progress report outlining what we've done, areas of success, areas of difficulty, and plans for the next week.

Currently online only (barring special circumstances) due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I'm a firm believer in the idea that every student is different and has unique needs. In order to best work with you, I like to start with a complimentary diagnostic examination and lesson in order to assess strengths and areas of improvement.

However, the path forward after the diagnostic will be dependent on the student's goals, timeframe, and the particular subject being worked on. Please feel free to reach out to discuss any concerns or special circumstances you might have.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Please inquire directly for rates. First lesson is free - I offer a complimentary one hour diagnostic for us to discuss the student's needs and objectives, set expectations, and plan out our work going forward.
