After SF public schools ended their honors math programs I was looking for a way for my 8th grader to qualify for high school honors Math. I am happy to report that Tyler at Alexander Math and Physics tutoring helped my son to test into Algebra 2 honors! His math grade in school went up to an A. Then when we told him he could stop tutoring with Tyler he didn't want to stop tutoring because he enjoyed what he was learning. Wow! My older son is now preparing for the Physics and Math subject tests and Alexander Tutoring is where we are going. I am so thankful to have advanced Math and Physics help for my kids.
Throughout my high school career, I haven't had a better tutor than the one I worked with through Alexander Tutoring. Physics has always been a difficult subject for me, but thanks to my tutor, Tyler McGoffin, it became very accessible. Tyler explained abstract concepts in simple terms, grounding them in the real world and enabling me to understand them. Tyler and I bonded very closely during our time together, and I came to see him not only as a tutor but as a friend. Alexander Tutoring provides fantastic services, and I know that anyone else who works with Tyler will be as happy as I am.
Our daughter wanted to improve her SAT math score and was willing to do test prep. In order to target her weaker areas in the time frame she had, we decided 1:1 tutoring would be the most efficient way to go. Sean was great to work with on the admin side. The tutoring sites were convenient and safe. Our daughter said her tutor, Olivia, explained things very clearly plus she was really nice and patient. Her SAT score went up 120 points overall and her math score went up 70 points. It worked for us because of excellent tutoring combined with the extra work my daughter put in between the tutoring sessions. Highly recommend.
My daughter is a senior at highschool and is doing honors Physics.
She wants to enroll for the AP physics tests as well.
During her classes at highschool she was struggling with the physics,so we decided to ask Sean for help.
Our daughter said that Sean can explain it very well and she was so relieved that she can understood much better the theory.
It gave her a big push for her self esteem and that she will not fail in her honors class physics.
Highly recommend Sean!
As a former online principal and educator from the early days of 'online education' (circa 1996-2008), I can attest to the difficulties of teaching mathematical concepts online (or even face to face). My son is part of the Smack Happy team that developed this website and he sends me links to some completed projects he thinks I'd be interested in...
Well, I perused the website and then watched the lesson on how the formula for the area of a circle is derived. What a great way to teach! If this sample lesson is any indication of their skill and passion in tutoring, I can heartily recommend their program.
I worked with Tyler for an electrical theory class, he was able to clear certain things up for me more so than the teacher of the class. After only a few weeks I felt like I could actually help teach my class mates with what I had learned. I credit that to Tyler's ability to clearly explain the subject matter. Thanks again.
Great tutoring service. Tyler was a great tutor. I was struggling to understand concepts in my college Calculus class, and within just a couple tutoring sessions I was able to fully understand the material in class. He would help me go over the exams and really ensure that I understood the concepts behind the problems, and not just how to do them. Definitely recommend.
