According to Alexis, he’s reaching not just kids from The Bronx but across the country and the world now that remote learning has become a reality for most students across the globe where COVID-19 has forced countries to shutdown.

CBS reports that students are praising him for being able to explain mathematical concepts better than their own teachers.

We want to give Alexis a big thank you for showing how Bronxites are always ready to help others!
