Alexander Tutoring is excellent. We are grateful for Sean, for helping our child truly understand and enjoy math, rather than experience it as something daunting. His positive support and genuine effort to make sure that the material is understood has helped our child with establishing a strong mathematical foundation. In addition to mastering material for the current grade, Sean looks ahead and begins working on material that likely will be introduced in the fall. Overall, this experience has helped our child to become more confident about math and has further strengthened a love of learning. What a gift. Would highly recommend Alexander Tutoring.
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!
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!
