Tutoring that helps students learn and enjoy math!

A passionate math tutors,

We know Calculus is hard. We also know that with Pre-Calculus practice, it doesn't need to be. Our programs are designed for students to better help them confidently manage their understanding of challenging Pre-Calculus and Calculus concepts.

As Mathematics Enthusiasts,

We know mathematics has always been a serious area of study, but only recently have we started viewing it as something to be enjoyed by students. After all, it is only through a challenge that we truly grow and come alive! Our students consistently shine in their classes after working with us.

As certified, experienced, and passionate math tutors,

Our mission is to help students learn and enjoy math by breaking down and explaining the concepts behind it all. Our pre-calculus tutors are excited to not just help students learn the material, but also to help them develop a new passion for math.

"When they get that first aha moment is when you can start to change the story. We build on that momentum, and start to rewrite the narrative in a way that supports the students and says that they are good at math."

- Sean Alexander, Algebra Tutor & Founder

"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

WHAT PARENTS SAY

"We were looking for something to supplement our child's math over the summer, especially with school closing prematurely.  Alexander Tutoring was recommended and when we reached out they called back promptly and helped us pick out a good option to help finish out the year. They quickly worked out that our child needed something more challenging and moved him to a more advanced course (pre-calculus) that kept him busy. He felt the tutors did a great job explaining math and helping him work at his own pace. Overall it was a great experience and they were easy to work with. Would highly recommend and use them again. Everything was via Zoom given the pandemic and it worked well. It prepared our child well for more summer math at an online college that will help him skip a class when school resumes."

- Darren P., Parent
