Testimonials
of Alexander's students

Alex did a really good job tutoring. He was very
patient and took the time to explain my questions. The only problem is that
his connection wasn't very reliable and I lost him a couple of times
during sessions. He was also very flexible and understanding when I had
computer difficulties.

I really enjoyed the online tutoring sessions. Having the immediate verbal and visual feedback was extremely
helpful, considering I was taking a distance learning course and I had no other way to receive such attention. Working
with the tutor on the whiteboard really illustrated how to do the work and whenever I was confused being able to
talk or type it out was also helpful. In the confusing world that
is online classes, having this link to actual people is very beneficial and motivating. I've seen a definite improvement in my grade since I
started to regularly attend my online tutoring sessions and I can't thank Alex enough for all his help!
