We tried a few tutors for our 13 year old son who needed help with math. Alexander Tutoring has been a godsend for us. Our son's confidence and math grades have improved dramatically since completing the summer math intensive and attending weekly sessions with his tutor. He is happier at school and likes to show his knowledge in class. Sean is responsive, organized and found a great tutor who fit our son close to our home and at a convenient time for us. Highly recommend.
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 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!
Sean is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Our daughter Maya always struggled in Maths, and in 9th grade's first quarter, we realized we needed some serious help for her. First report card scored an low D.
Sean worked with Maya, one session at a time, at her pace, giving her confidence and going back to the roots and missed Math notions. Happy to report that Maya's final report card scores a high B, and her Math teacher elected her the MVP of her class. Sean's help has been unvaluable in Maya's progress. Worth every penny! Thanks Sean, you rock!
What can I say about Sean that has not already been shared here...HE SIMPLY ROCKS!
He worked with our daughter (11th grade) and helped her to find confidence in a subject that is literally like learning another language for her. He met her where she was and encouraged her to push herself and did it all with humor and patience. And the results were terrific both in her approach to math and her grades.
Sean was always accommodating and quick to offer additional sessions (Skype, home office) during crunch time. And as other reviewers have stated, it was never a push to get our daughter to meet with Sean, in fact she looked forward to her weekly sessions with him because he had the ability to simplify and break things down for her in a way that made sense to her. Sean is a gifted educator and a super nice guy!
