Hello! My name is Alex, and I am a 3rd year student attending the University of British Columbia majoring in Statistics and Computer Science. I am looking to tutor students in the subjects of Mathematics, Programming, and Statistics. I believe that the process of learning is delicate. From introducing concepts in a basic framework to ease initial struggle, to pushing my students to complete challenging problems to solidify understand, I believe each step in the process is essential, but should be adjusted to each student. At the end of it all, I feel there is nothing more rewarding than seeing my students solve problems involving concepts that they once had never known.
I have a few years of tutoring experience in high school, where I voluntarily provided math and science homework help for kids at the Greater Lawrence Technical School. I also worked as a tutor at the Russian School of Mathematics for a year. My experiences in these positions, and working as a kids ski instructor for a winter, provide me with a solid foundation not only as a teacher, but as a mentor and caretaker for children. I am patient, sympathetic, but, if required, I can also be demanding. I would love the opportunity to teach your child :).
