Alex's philosophy of teaching is to provide balanced instruction that equips each client with the skills needed to achieve his or her goal. Rather than employ “gimmicky” approaches that look good on paper but fail on test day, Alex emphasizes fundamental knowledge and advanced topic-specific strategies. His primary teaching skill is his ability to make difficult material accessible to clients at all ability levels. While many tutors and instructors struggle to convey material clearly, in your sessions the content will be explained in an easy-to-understand manner, in as much detail and with as much patience as needed. Repetition and deep understanding are emphasized: it is better to know 10 topics in depth than 20 topics at only a superficial level.
