Alex is a fantastic linguistics tutor, he's knowledgeable about many facets of linguistics (morphology, phonology, phonetics, syntax etc) and is super patient!! Super helpful when working through problem sets and developing learning tactics! 10/10

T
Tana

Alex is an outstanding tutor - he really takes the time to ensure that I understand a concept before he moves on to the next - nothing is too much for him and boy have I challenged him with some very complex phonological problem sets. He is very patient and has a friendly but very professional demeanour. After wasting money on other tutors I am so pleased to have found Alex who I will be working with long term. Highly highly recommend him!!

M
Myra

Alex is a very knowledgeable tutor and knows what he's talking about. Do book a lesson with him if you're majoring in English Language and Linguistics like me and is struggling. Thanks to him, I passed my 1st semester of uni!

Ka Yiu

My name is Gordon, one of Alex’s many students.
Alex is one of the best teachers I have ever met. His passion to teach is overwhelming. I attributed that to his core belief of wanting students to learn and grow. Alex is the kind of teacher who will make you feel like spending time with your best friend, or your beloved up. Thumbs up. Emoji Happy Face with teeth.

Alex was extremely helpful with editing my personal essay. He patiently explained his edits and how to cohesively organize thoughts within paragraphs. I am so happy I decided to reach out ! My only regret is that I didn’t contact him sooner.

Julia

Alex was a great teacher! I was struggling in my LING 100 class and he helped me break down all the areas I was struggling with and answered all the questions I had. He was very patient which was good since I can be a bit slow to understand certain topics

I needed some help in studying for phonology and Alex met all of the qualifications. He has extremely deep knowledge on phonology and linguistics.

Alex's tutoring sessions were timely, relevant, robust and extremely thorough. He broke down problems in a very concise and efficient manner. He is patient and makes sure that you have a plan to attack problems.

I definitely recommend Alex if you need a high quality tutor.
