open quotation

Alex is patient with explaining the more complicated sentences we are having now that we are further into the language. When we are first going over difficult chapters he gives more examples other than just what the textbook has, which is always helpful to break down what is happening grammatically. He is always able to give historical background to the sentences and reading paragraphs in the textbook, which is nice since a lot of times the textbook provides only a sliver of the information you might want to understand what they are about.
