I'm Alex. I've lived in NYC for 7 years and currently live in Downtown Brooklyn. I work in marketing but have a strong background in Speech Language Pathology. I also make ceramics and practice improv, which I believe contribute to my dynamic approach to tutoring.
I have a Bachelor of Science from New York University and a Master of Science in Speech Language Pathology from Brooklyn College. Prior to Graduate school I worked as a tutor for children between the ages of 7-12 focused on phonological awareness, reading comprehension, writing skills, and vocabulary. I taught college courses during my time at Brooklyn College in science, public speaking, and an overview of speech language pathology. I love teaching a variety of subject matter in creative ways as I believe true understanding comes when you are truly immersed in a topic. I really enjoy finding activities that encourage individuals to enjoy the tasks that are challenging them by incorporating favorite topics and games.
I have experience working with individuals ages 0-99 years old. Through my graduate study I also worked closely with individuals with special needs. I understand that tutoring involves individualizing lesson plans because everyone learns differently. I love finding the methods that work best for my students and seeing the joy that comes from success in the classroom. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have!
I love teaching English as a second language. Learning a language is frustrating at times but it can also be a lot of fun. I believe the more applications you have with a language and the more engaged you are the better your understanding will be. There are so many creative ways to approach learning a new language and I love working together with my student to find the ways that make it the most enjoyable and effective.
