"Hello! My name is Alexander, and I'm an architectural professional in New York City. I recently graduated magna cum laude from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a degree in Architecture and minor in communication. Throughout college, in addition to my classwork, I was involved in multiple mentorship roles in the community—as an academic mentor to dozens of students, a teaching assistant for multiple classes, a resident assistant in the dorms, and a tour guide for the School of Architecture. After graduating, I spent time as a test prep and college essay tutor through C2 Education, where I worked with students from elementary to high school assisting with standardized test prep, homework assistance, and college applications.

Through these roles, I’ve found success as a facilitator, helping students draw their own connections within and between subjects to further their implicit understanding of the task at hand. Rote memorization and dictation only go so far, and if you or your student are looking to gain a deeper, more intuitive understanding of a subject (or just having difficulty with a particular subject, unit, or assignment), I may be able to help. My specific subjects of relative expertise include English & social sciences through 12th grade, math & hard sciences through 8th grade, as well as assistance with college essays.

I've been an English tutor for students ranging from elementary to high school, in all aspects of the subject (vocabulary, writing skills, reading comprehension, etc.), as well as an accomplished writer in my own right, having written two award-winning papers in my time at Rensselaer.

I am a currently practicing architectural professional in a firm with projects around the New York area, specializing personally in architectural & graphic design and architectural history. In spare time, I also practice hobbyist and freelance photography.

I'm extremely flexible as a tutor evenings and weekends within NYC & online! I'll be most able to help if you already have materials you" less...
