My name is Alex and I am a proud and recent graduate of Rice University where I received my Master's in Environmental Science with a heavy focus on Environmental Statistics. Before this I attended the University of Texas at Austin where I received my Bachelor's degrees in Geography and Humanities.

Having been exposed to an eclectic background of liberal arts and hard science I am comfortable tutoring across a broad range of subjects and encourage students to see the inherent connections between their work and real-world applications.

Despite my technical background, I am a person who would much rather contemplate the words in a good book rather than the letters of a differential equation. However, my interest in studying the natural world has caused me to suffer through more math classes than I care to count. As a result, I am well-equipped to help 'math-shy' students understand, appreciate, and flourish in a subject that they may have previously disliked.

I believe in forging a relationship between the student and the subject matter with the idea being able to answer the question "when will I ever need to know this?" is the first step to understanding.

Currently, I live in Houston with my bride, Nathalie, and our great big black lab, affectionately know as "The Bear". I love being out-of-doors in any capacity and am an avid soccer-player, swimmer, and cyclist.
