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 and Physics tutoring is truly a superior tutoring service. My daughter was really struggling with math and physics at the beginning of her Freshman year and after starting tutoring once a week her marks started improving immediately! By the end of the year, she achieved an A+ in physics and an A in math! Sean was not only excellent in working with my daughter, he was very organized, reliable and accommodating if I ever had to change the day, or get extra sessions for finals etc.. My daughter has more confidence going into Sophomore year and we couldn't be happier with this excellent tutoring service. This was an amazing success story and I very highly recommend this tutoring service to everyone!
This is the Cadillac (or Tesla? Bentley?) of math/science tutors! Tyler helped my child survive AP Physics with a really poor high school teacher. Tyler taught underlying concepts, reinforced necessary Calc lessons, and diagnosed roadblocks before they became problems. He worked with a complicated schedule and was flexible. More importantly - when there were critical tests or problems, Sean and Tyler jumped in and did whatever was necessary to provide emergency Physics triage! As a result: our child learned that hard work, a tough attitude and commitment can get you through ( while several classmates blame the teacher and complain constantly.) And she loves them so much she declined summer vacation so she could spend the month before college starts reviewing Calc and learning to code. They are worth everything.
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.
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.
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.
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?
