The Brief

Alexander Tutoring is a website for a mathematics and physics tutoring business in a one on one environment. The new website was meant to be a more modern style that is simple and different than other tutoring websites—all encapsulated in a space/universe/physics styled theme. Sean, the client, also wanted to be able to make changes easily as the company grows and stand out from other basic tutoring sites out there.

Our Approach

From the sitemap and prototype to the design iterations—we worked closely with Sean to bring his dream website to life. We approached this design with Sean’s creative vision in mind.

  • We incorporated a darker theme versus a more traditional lighter theme.
  • The theme also includes imagery that Sean and his team were passionate about:
    • Real photos taken by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope
    • Imagery that represents the Fibonacci sequence (a recursive sequence, generated by adding the two previous numbers in the sequence)

The responsive site setup also includes:

  • Custom Meta Data, SEO
  • Local SEO
  • Google Analytics Tracking
  • Custom Forms, with stored entries
  • Custom CTA’s
  • Custom Homepage & Secondary Page Design
  • Yelp & Social Media Integration
  • Testimonials
  • Resources / Blog
  • SSL

The Result

Right before we launched, we realized that the site would benefit from a better hosting service. We quickly switched from Justhost to WP Engine, and got it up and running several seconds faster just based on the hosting service. Since then, the team at Alexander Tutoring has shared this website with the world. They were extremely excited to announce the launch to their past and present students and parents alike.

NEW! Before we rang in 2020, Sean reached out to us for a design and logo refresh. Some other alterations were made to the site since we’d launched, that weren’t quite sitting well with him. So, we worked with him on the 2020 refresh! Check out the latest images for the results. 🙂
