Alex, with two Ph.D.’s in Mathematics and Physics, was born Romania, taught advanced engineering courses and graduate level courses at Worcester Polytechnic School in Massachusetts, before moving to Palm Beach County over 20 years ago with his wife and daughter. Alex specializes (of course) in SAT and ACT math and science as well as AP and SAT II math and science courses. In addition, Alex works with students in the academic arena, helping them grasp the often elusive concepts needed for success in the higher level courses of calculus and physics. He has been aptly named by our students: resident genius.
Melinda, an invaluable member of our team, is carrying on her family’s legacy, which spans three generations of educators. A native of Hungary, Melinda completed her formal education at the highly competitive International University of Pecs, earning a Masters Degree in Economics in 2,000. Having spent many years studying abroad and working in countries including the United States, Austria, and Germany, Melinda is fluent in English, Hungarian and German and brings a unique worldview perspective to her students. In 2,010 Melinda was awarded a teaching certification in the State of Florida, working as a lead instructor in mathematics at a local, reputed learning center before joining Alex Damian SAT/ACT Prep 9 years ago. Her sharp mathematical mind coupled with her enthusiasm for teaching and management skills make her a true asset to our team. Her students learn strategies and techniques that will make them successful in their professional life, way beyond the standardized test.
