ExperienceI have thousands of hours of one-on-one tutoring experience over the past 15 years (8 years in Palo Alto) and I am familiar with curricula at local schools, many Stanford classes, California Standards, and National Exams.
I have had success tutoring local high school and Stanford students in paper writing, statistics, economics, math, and physics. I have taught software engineers and other professionals statistics, writing, and machine learning. I also enjoy tutoring younger kids (5th - 8th grade) in writing, math, and science.
My test prep results include 200+ point improvements on the SAT including scores of 2350+.
I have advised successful applicants to Ivy League schools, Stanford, MIT, Williams College, UCs and other top undergraduate programs as well as top National and International Business (HEC, INSEAD) and other graduate programs (such as the Singularity Institute [~2% admission rate] Graduate Studies Program at NASA).
I have also worked as a textbook author and editor for CK-12. I Authored several chapters for physics and math textbooks, wrote an answer key to a physics textbook (solving every problem) and edited and illustrated a highly reviewed Astronomy Textbook.
I have taught Physics, Math, and English one-on-one at Lydian Academy where I also developed the curriculum for AP Physics C.
Finally, I have experience organizing and working as a counselor at science oriented summer camps and preparing advanced students for math competitions.
1560 SAT (800 Verbal, 760 Math)
800's on Math, Physics, and Writing SAT II.
5's on Physics, Calculus BC, History, and other exams.
Intel Semifinalist and many other national-level prizes in high school.
HobbiesHello! My name is Alex and I enjoy learning, cooking, and juggling. I also like to read.
My academic philosophy is to teach and link relevant fundamentals and methods to encourage lasting improvement that is highly transferable. Though my majors were in quantitative subjects, my experience as a writer and editor allows to relate well to students of different learning styles. I enjoy helping math and science oriented students improve their writing and vice versa.
