DC Metro Academic Coach Alex K. is a fan of his job. His love for tutoring could not exist without a strange affinity for standardized tests (“Yes,” he says, “there is something absurdly thrilling about them”), but what he really values is watching his students discover their own capabilities.
Alex shares, “there is a special sort of satisfaction that comes only from inspiring confidence in another human being.”
While supporting students in this way enriches Alex’s professional life, it is creating music that is the wind which carries him through.
He recently released a beautiful album, which transplants the listener to another time and place and infuses the soul with spirit. Listen to a sample of songs here and read more about the album and what inspired Alex to craft this musical compilation.
