SEAN ALEXANDER

Sean discovered a fascination for physics when he was just fifteen, when he proof-read a friend’s report on black holes. In one semester, he read every physics book in his school’s library. He was hooked, but his love of teaching came a bit later.

MATH - Mistakes Allow Thinking to Happen

MATH TUTORING FOR ALL AGES

We believe that we can all make a difference in someone's life, and we've proven that time and again with our students. We will do the same for you.

For us, teaching is more than just tutoring – it's about inspiring people to discover new possibilities through mathematics. If you want to learn how to solve complex problems, prepare for standardized tests like the SAT or ACT, or simply gain a deeper understanding of math concepts, look no further than our innovative and dynamic approach to tutoring.

We are dedicated to helping you reach your math goals through:

Practice, strategy, and the occasional math joke

Mastering core concepts that promote deep learning

Placing the individual learner at the center of the learning process

Building skills that work—from an elementary school math quiz to SAT math prep and beyond!

Elementary School

With years of experience tutoring San Francisco students from Sacred Heart, French International, and the San Francisco Friends School, we understand that younger students can get frustrated with math.

Many times we hear "I suck at math". We’ve found this attitude stems from an event in which the student felt embarrassed.

Typical events include

  • Being called to the front of the class while not knowing the answer
  • Placement in the wrong math class
  • Changing schools
  • An injury or life event that interrupted math class

From that event, a narrative begins that creates doubt in a student’s mind. A frustrated student shuts down when it comes to learning math. They simply decide it’s not going to happen.

We change the narrative by matching your student with a real physicist or mathematician. Someone with professional research experience that can explain complex skills at a basic level to younger students. When your student becomes relaxed and confident, real education begins.

At the elementary level, we aim for complete confidence and understanding. Our focus is addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and fractions. Our goal is to provide a solid foundation in mathematics on which to build. Sessions include mini-tests, quizzes, and other useful drills to enhance confidence, knowledge, and retention.

Middle School

We tutor math for students at Presidio Hill, Live Oak, Sacred Heart, French International, and San Francisco Friends Middle School. We know how important it is to establish the skills for high school.

Grades 6, 7, and 8 introduce a whole new layer of math:

  • Equations
  • Integers
  • Order of operations
  • Proportions
  • Percent
  • Decimals
  • Substitutions
  • Measures of central tendency and variability.

It’s vital students master these skills before high school. Mastery of these topics will set the student up for success in algebra, geometry, trigonometry, precalculus, and calculus.

Many students memorize steps in place of intuitive insight. They are asked to memorize an equation without knowledge of its origin. Our method derives every equation used. That is where the magic of math lies. By deriving each equation, the student gains insight into the foundations of mathematics. They learn that mathematics is the language of our universe. By going deeper your student will have an excellent foundation for high school math classes.

High School

Mathematics expands to a whole new level in high school. High school students at University, Urban, Lowell, Drew, St. Ignatius, and Lick-Wilmerding must master algebra before delving into more advanced math.

Algebra is the gateway to geometry, trigonometry, calculus, precalculus, and physics. Our tutors focus on core concepts like:

  • Complex Numbers
  • Functions
  • Slope
  • Isosceles and equilateral triangles
  • Unit conversions
  • Solving inequalities
  • Parabolas
  • Laws of logic and conditional statements

Our SAT and ACT Masterclasses will increase your score significantly. Attend the college or university of your dreams!

Mathematics is the language of the natural universe that you live in. We strive to teach math in that way to each student. Why? Because it’s awesome! Many schools teach math by simply going through the motions. This makes students resentful because they don’t understand why. Why am I doing this? And that’s a good question.

We show the why behind the equation. We show where the formulas come from. It’s not enough to just write down the Pythagorean Theorem. You should know how to derive the Pythagorean Theorem. It doesn’t come from outer space! Students that engage in math on this level are motivated and inspired. We don’t want you to learn it for a test and forget it. We aim to give you math tools for life.

College & University

Math courses at a college or university can be tough. San Francisco is home to elite colleges and universities such as the University of San Francisco, San Franciso State University, and the University of California, San Francisco.  Classes are oversized, it can be difficult to get one-on-one time with the professor or teaching assistant. Courses move at a breakneck speed, so it’s critical to stay on top of things. If you fall off course, it's difficult to get back on track.

College math is hard. Our tutors are experts in:

  • College Algebra
  • College Geometry
  • College trigonometry
  • Finite Math
  • Statistics
  • College Calculus
  • College Physics

Our tutors are real-world scientists and mathematicians. They have mastered their craft and earned high-ranking degrees and accolades.

At Alexander Tutoring, we recognize some students are afraid to admit they are struggling. Our tutors slow down and encourage students to take it one step at a time. We believe a methodical, organized approach enhances learning and insight. This system teaches giving answers a careful once-over to avoid mistakes. The result is a better course grade and improved understanding.

Adult Math & Physics

Adults in San Francisco that haven’t had a mathematics course in years may be intimidated. Don’t worry! Our tutors know how to get you back into the game.

For adults returning to college or university, our math and physics tutors tailor a study program just for you. Our objective is to ensure you understand the course material and achieve a better grade. From basic algebra to thermodynamics and nuclear physics, our skilled instructors can help older students feel confident about math.

Our teaching method is built on honesty. We will answer your questions without deception or stonewalling. We treat all students the same way we treat each other. Nurturing teaching environments and student-tutor relationships translates to accomplishment.

WHAT PARENTS SAY

"He (her son) asked if he could continue tutoring in math because he was really enjoying how much he was learning."
