Brooklyn Math Tutors was founded with a simple guiding philosophy: Make math fun, the process of learning enjoyable, and the rest follows.
To that end, Brooklyn Math Tutors seeks out teachers who are not only strong in math, but are also warm, well-rounded, dynamic human beings, able to inspire and connect with their students on an individual level.
Alexander Friedman – Founder
Alex has enjoyed tutoring math, science, and other technical topics since he was a teenager at Stuyvesant High School.
He graduated Summa Cum Laude from Northeastern University, worked as a Researcher at Carnegie Mellon, and did a brief stint as a technology consultant before leaving the corporate and academic worlds to tutor full time.
Having worked with kids, adults, and everyone in between, he came to see that math-phobia, uncertainty, and boredom – not a lack of innate talent – keeps most students from succeeding.
