Alex Benke

Senior Tutor

Alex earned her BA in Psychology from the University of Denver, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2012. She went on to complete an MFA in Fiction at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, where she discovered her passion for teaching. Her background in mental health and experience as a nontraditional college student have given her a special interest in helping unique learners thrive within a flawed education system.

Outside of tutoring, she enjoys rollerblading in Venice Beach, shopping at Buffalo Exchange, and making Buffy the Vampire Slayer references at every possible opportunity.
