We engaged the services of Alexander Tutoring for both of our sons with great success. Our 9th grader participated in the summer intensive last summer to review math concepts to feel confident with high school Algebra. His experience was very positive, he was ready to attend every session, appreciated his tutor Charlie, and felt like he was much more solid on an array of concepts. It really boosted his confidence going into high school, which was very valuable.
Our younger son received tutoring during this last fall semester for review of concepts he needed more grounding in as a 7th grader. He also had success and gained confidence with each session, enough so he felt he could move forward on his own after winter break.
Sean was great to work with when we had scheduling conflicts or illness, and locations for tutoring were convenient. We highly recommend Alexander Tutoring for learning and building confidence.
I had a great experience as a tutored student these past few months. I worked with Tyler who was extremely effective, to-the-point, and knowledgeable. I was really having trouble understanding how to translate a problem into understandable calculus, and Tyler helped me break down problems step by step so that I could more easily understand.
My son has had two excellent math tutors (6th grade math) from Alexander Tutoring. His favorite tutor by far is Wilder -- he has an approach that makes my son feel comfortable and makes the subject matter not intimidating and approachable. Many tutors from other agencies have been condescending or unable to connect with our son who struggles in math -- Sean hires tutors that are the exact opposite -- our son is more confident following his tutoring sessions because of that. In addition, Sean runs the company very well, the sessions are organized, calendared with no cancellations for us so far. Any potential changes are communicated way in advance. thank you Sean for running a great organization! well worth the investment!
My kid had weekly math tutoring with Wilder and a few sessions with Sean. Both tutors were TERRIFIC. Also, the company is well organized and well run. Everything from scheduling to payment was handled smoothly. The price is steep, but the service - and the customer service - were both top notch. Would highly recommend Alexander Tutoring!
Alexander tutoring has helped me tremendously. I was getting help from Sean for Calculus and he was always consistent with answering my questions and making sure that I understood the material. He taught me the importance of neatness when solving problems and that is not about how quickly you learn a subject but how much you've learned. Recently, I enrolled in a Physics class. I emailed Sean and ask for a tutoring session and he suggested I meet with Tyler. I see Tyler once a week and I am extremely grateful to have him and the alexander team by my side. When I first met with Tyler, I was nervous because I didn't even read the text before I saw him. Luckily for me, Tyler had a big /welcoming smile, patience, and had the physics textbook already installed in his mind LOL. He began by introducing topics then taught me how to approach and solve problems. His approach was perfect for me.
What I love about this tutoring program is that they are not only knowledgeable in the subjects but they know exactly how to get you understand and learn the subject. When I first met Sean he had a huge smile. When I met with Tyler he had a huge smile. When I met his fiancé who also tutors!!! She had a huge smile. These are the type of people you want by your side. These wonderful people will help you succeed in your academic life if you let them. Education is one of the only things in life that cannot be taken away, why not get the best out of it through alexander tutoring?
Alexander Math & Physics Tutoring already came highly recommended to us by our son's teacher but I could not have imagined the impact Tyler had on our son. A junior in High School he was struggling with Physics adding a lot of anxiety and stress to his school days.
Our son strives in a 1-1 environment and Sean took time to talk to us about our needs and matched our son with Tyler. Tyler has helped him tremendously, not only understanding and mastering the material but discovering his love for Physics and Math in the process. After the first session with Tyler he came home and could not stop talking about Physics--he could not wait for the next session. He felt that Tyler totally got how he his brain works and was amazed how things all of a sudden fell into place. Tyler will accompany our son through senior year, without a question. Last week our son came home from a Physics class literally jumping up and down. He had been able to explain a process in class as one of the only ones because Tyler had explained it to him in an interesting conversation they had the day before. Moments like these are precious in building the confidence needed to succeed. Tyler is not only our son's tutor but also his mentor.
Sean and Tyler have been very accommodating to our schedule--even setting up skype sessions while we were traveling in Germany. Both were in contact with our son's teacher to make sure they understood what was expected in the class. We can very highly recommend Tyler and Sean and his team.
My child had a wonderful experience with SA tutoring this summer. Chase was reluctant and not at all enthusiastic about doing work over the summer. His tutor Olivia not only made it fun and interesting but also helped him with his summer homework. This has made Chase feel more comfortable about entering the 7th grade, feeling caught up on his work but also having a better grasp on what is to be expected in this next year.
In addition I appreciated their willingness to work with our schedule, and their options on different meeting locations in the city.
I highly recommend Sean Alexander to anyone looking for good, solid tutoring help.
My daughter Anna worked with Olivia to brush up on her math and science for her SAT/ACT tests. Anna found the time she spent with Olivia very useful and enjoyable, and is now much more confident, which we've also seen reflected in her results. Olivia and Sean were also very flexible, and always tried to accommodate our requests to modify the schedule, etc. I would definitely recommend Sean's service.
Studying with Harmony made such a big difference for my daughter at school. She was discouraged from taking higher-level math last year, and had to advocate strongly for herself to get that placement. She was pretty intimidated at the start of the school year and doubting whether she'd made the right call. As well, there were a few boys who were dominating the conversation. She's stuck it out now, speaks up in class, and is excelling. I know it was valuable for her to see a female role model handling math with grace, and she enjoyed Harmony's company as well. Thanks Harmony!
