About this tutor

I am Alex, a junior at Portland State University. I am studying economics and history, also likely to take a minor in conflict resolution, which keeps me pretty busy. I would like to keep studying, possibly going for a teaching degree and becoming a history professor. I also want to promote peace globally, hence the conflict resolution. I am always eager to share my knowledge and to learn from others!

I have a lot of experience tutoring on a private level, starting from teaching my classmates in high school. I generally worked by word of mouth, but being new to the city I had to use a different approach. I enjoy teaching which makes it super worth while for me, it's a great feeling to see when the student is really understanding a concept that they previously struggled with. Looking forward to helping students in Portland!

One on one tutoring is a really great way to achieve clarity in a way that is just not possible in today's classes of 20+ students. I teach the way I always like to be taught, which is very hands on and interactive. At the same time, I like to be there to help, not to take over an assignment and do it for you, so I will generally let my students work through their assignments by themselves and I will be there to help them when necessary.

    Alex Read was an excellent tutor. He was patient, and helped me view difficult questions in such a way that I could come to understand them on my own.


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

I will always call my student to introduce myself at first. During the first meeting we will touch bases on what the student needs help on, and we will discuss what our expectations will be. Working with students at first will be mostly establishing which areas they are good at and which aread will need addressing. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have always enjoyed teaching and sharing my knowledge with others. I have tutored from high school onwards, mostly private tutoring. 

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

I charge $20 an hour per person.
