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!
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.
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.
Tyler really helped my 14 year old son with his algebra and his physics this year. Dave was having significant math difficulties and I'm also not proficient in math (runs in family?lol) so I couldn't help, so we we referred by his school to Alexander.
I can say that Tyler inspired a lot of confidence in the material and was instrumental in facilitating an improvement that we found to be satisfactory.
If your child has issues with math, I am highly able to commend Alexander and Tyler to you for assistance.
