Private tutor in Redmond, WA
Rice University - Bachelors, English , Rutgers University-New Brunswick - PHD, English
Hello, I'm Alex. I obtained my bachelor's degree from Rice University, where I graduated summa cum laude with honors. My master's degree came from Rutgers University, where I studied English Literature. I also graduated from Rutgers with my PhD at the end of 2015. Rutgers has an intensive curriculum for their English program that prepared me as a tutor. As a graduate student, I was placed in the position of teaching various courses for incoming freshmen. I also worked as a tutor for the writing department at Rice. Additionally, I was working with elementary and middle schoolers in various subjects. My specialty is English Literature, and I also love teaching the fundamentals of writing. I like to focus my tutoring on eradicating typical writing mistakes as well as helping to improve vocabulary and writing style. I also think that introducing students to great classics can lead them to learn to appreciate great poetry, novels, and plays. Even when this is not the case, they will learn how to critically analyze readings and passages. I have personal experience with the SAT, GRE, and Literature GRE, and I am happy to share those skills. When I have free time to indulge, I enjoy traveling, cooking, and practicing languages.
