As empathetic educators,

We believe that math and algebra shouldn't be something you're forced to endure. We want to change the math and algebra narrative and convert those negatives into positives.

Pre-Algebra is the key to learning how to solve problems. The more our students know about math, the greater the opportunity for them to succeed in all aspects of real-life problem-solving.

Alexander Tutoring Tutor Felix teaching his student math

"This school year is different, however, learning is not about the place, it's about the journey. Let's make it fun!"
- Felix Rojas, Tutor


"I am telling you: If *my* rising 8th grader can do well in math after working with an Alexander Math tutor, anyone will. She worked with Gerald all summer, which she was less than delighted to hear when we told her about it, but she quickly stopped complaining after they started their work together. Last night she told us that she'd like to KEEP working with him once school starts so she doesn't fall behind. What? Thank you Gerald and Sean for giving her the confidence to go back to school this week feeling confident."

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.

sam headshot


The past nineteen years of teaching has provided him the opportunity to learn and grow alongside students in the United States, Mexico, Ecuador & Venezuela. During that time, he taught all subjects to many different age groups but has always had a special place in his heart for math.



I believe that the motivation to practice mathematics must be discovered by the individual, and I am excited to watch my students discover what it is about mathematics that gives it purpose to them.

Rebecca Malas

Rebecca Malas

My love of science started at an early age when I used to watch Star Trek Voyager with my family. Seeing these women leaders in science inspired me to continue to pursue physics and engineering in my dreams to one day reach the stars.



As a teacher, I learned even more from these problems than I did as a student; I am excited to watch my students develop a confidence and fluency in mathematics.

Physics Tutor Jonathan Lupercio


His core teaching principle is that of intuition, focusing heavily on ensuring physics and mathematics comes naturally in the thinking of his students.

Gerald Morgan


He noticed his strong love for mathematics at the tender age of eight years old. Though difficult, he welcomed the challenge and enjoyed the sense of accomplishment that accompanied solving each equation.

Our Mathematics Tutor James Magnatta


Still teaching as his primary form of income and loving every minute of it. When he is not talking math with students he spends his free time surfing, sailing, exploring, and concocting meals to pass the time.

Angelique Alexander


Angelique has had two passions both of which she has been lucky enough to study and work in professionally. The first is teaching mathematics, the second is Opera.



With a B.S degree in Chemistry from The Central University of Venezuela, he started delving into physics and mathematics to take on one of the most fascinating areas of knowledge, Quantum Mechanics, and the application of its concepts in the atomic and molecular world.



Between spaceships, lightsabers, and the mystical powers of the Force (which one later finds out is a fundamental concept that drives all of physics... not the mystical part but the force part), a young boy’s imagination was stolen.
