Hi, my name is Alex and I am a current Senior at the University of Illinois. I am studying Finance in the College of Business, which has recently been ranked the 6th best Finance program in the nation. I am from Arlington Heights, Illinois, and attended High School in District 214, which ranks as one of the best districts in the state. I am very personable and caring and will make sure my students truly understand the material that I teach.

In my free time, I enjoy exercising, reading, and watching sports. I am a big fan of College Basketball and European Soccer.

To be patient and careful in teaching so that students are able to truly understand the material.

By showing the student how gaining the knowledge in the subject will pay off in the future.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

Asking the student to teach me the material. If you can teach it, you know it!
