"Alex tutored my grandson, Nathan Chau, linguistics ,this past summer. He is very friendly and accommodating. He put Nathan at ease soon after tutorial started. He taught and guided Nathan;at the same time, he gave Nathan the freedom to explore and discuss areas of his interest. Nathan has had a positive experience in his lessons with Alex. He will have more tutorials with Alex in summer 2016. Personally, I appreciate most that Alex updated me regularly on Nathan's progress, putting me well at ease as well. To say the least, Alex is a kind and thoughtful tutor whom students and parents can trust."
"I was in great need of a phonology tutor and lucky enough to find Alex. He is a highly professional individual and is extremely efficient but has great patience with his students. His calm and positive nature creates a vibrant atmosphere for learning and study. Alex was able to answer all of the questions asked of him and is very knowledgeable in phonology/linguistics. I made use of his services multiple times and would not hesitate to call upon him again for assistance. In short, it was a pleasure working with Alex. These tutoring sessions also helped raised my grades. I highly recommend this tutor."
"Working with Alex helped to improve my understanding of some difficult course material. He was quick to respond to my initial message and was flexible in terms of dates, times, and meeting places. Alex was familiar with the textbook used in my Phonetics course and was able to answer all of the questions I had. Overall, I had a very positive experience with Alex and would definitely recommend his tutoring services to other students."
"Alex was a wonderful phonetics tutor who helped guide my online learning! Doing an online course, I really appreciated the extra help and clarification. Alex went through assignments, homework and test prep with me. Alex was able to tutor me over Skype when I was in Ireland and was very accommodating to the time zones! I ended up with a 93% in the course and am beyond happy with my learning experience."
"Alexander is one of the best tutors I've hired! He has a strong mastery over the many subjects he teaches, and is able to convey ideas with much ease. Besides his expertise, he has a wonderful personality to compliment the whole package. He is very personable, and is easy to get along with. I've very never been so pleased."
"Alex did a great job on proofreading two research proposals that I sent him. He is also very reliable in terms of returning the jobs on time."
"Alex is a wonderful tutor, his passion for the field shines in the lessons as well as his knowledge of them. He is methodical without being overly pedagogical. If there is something you don’t understand he will conjure several examples until you, the student, feel comfortable and are ready to move on to the next bit. He is flexible with his time schedule, humble and polite. How he helped me: Alex brought me from a primary school level of grammar and phonetics, a level in which I was extremely uncomfortable and slightly embarrassed about not having comprehended, to a point now where I feel well versed in syntax analysis & basic phonetics. Although I am a quick learner, I had never imagined I would finally understand this subject that had been my nemesis in school in many ways, and I owe that in many ways to Alex."
"My experience with Alex was fantastic! He responded to my first message very quickly and from there we were able to build schedule that worked for the both of us. The great thing about Alex is that he offers tutoring sessions both in person and over Skype - these sessions were awesome (and very affordable)! Alex was flexible and worked around my busy work and school schedule to make sure that I was getting the right amount of tutoring I needed to succeed in the course. He never tries to "sell" you hours or extend sessions needlessly. Instead, he takes a look at your upcoming due dates and prepares you for what's next. Together, we reviewed tests, tackled assignments, revisited key concepts, and prepared for the final exam. I think it's important to mention that without Alex I do not think I would have passed my linguistics course. Before having him as my tutor I was a failing student and he helped turn things around. I cannot thank him enough for his help this past summer. If you're looking for someone who is smart, friendly and down to earth then look no further. I would recommend this tutor to all my friends and family. Thanks Alex!"
"Alex is an unusually talented linguist who overshadows quite a few seasoned business branding/naming/marketing/creative strategists. As a curious and knowledge-hungry scholar, he has been effortlessly solving every linguistics-related problem thrown at him with the masterful comprehension of someone who has amassed an encyclopedia of knowledge. He is an extraordinary man with a wide range of creative ideas, intense focus, and the ability to identify the most important issue among many. Even before getting to results, his sense of humour and polished personality make working with him a pleasure already."
