Alexander Cross

Alexander graduated from Cornell University in 2012, with a BA in Economics and a Minor in Computing in the Arts. After graduating, he pursued postgraduate studies in FALCON, a full year intensive Mandarin studies program, partly at the Cornell University campus and partly at the highly ranked Peking University, in Beijing China.

After completing his postgraduate Mandarin studies in May 2013, Alexander remained in China and worked as a tutor for Pattison Education, where he taught English to Chinese students at all levels, in a 1-to-1 setting. Most courses were taught to high school students, and designed with regard to the best possible preparation for specific English tests, such as TOEFL, IELTS, SAT, ACT, SSAT, and higher level subject tests such as AP US History, and AP Economics (Micro/Macro). While in China, Alexander completed his HSK level 5 Certification.

Upon returning to the USA, Alexander continued his tutoring career by tutoring high school and undergraduate students online with various companies, such as Wyzant, Bridges to Readiness, and Varsity Tutors. Alexander continues to tutor a variety of subjects, including SAT, AP Economics, ACT, Chinese, TOEFL, Math, and SSAT.

Alexander also holds a 120 hour TEFL Certification as well as a 50 hour Teaching Business English Certification.
