Alexander "...I have taught in France, Africa, and in Boston, and I am especially passionate about language tutoring (French, Latin), although I also love teaching math, writing, and helping students through the college admissions process (including SAT prep).

Outside of the realm of teaching, I also love sports and music..."

My methods are multi-sensory in nature, which means that students use multiple parts of their brain to ensure they will learn the information, and I am certified in a multi-sensory phonics program called PAF (which is based on Orton-Gillingham)..."
