About Dr. Alexandre

For over twenty years I have been involved in a variety of teaching activities. These experiences
allowed me to formulate several principles that could make reciprocal knowledge exchange between lecturer
and students much more fruitful.

My experience tells me that the exceptional teaching is learner-centered. I’m trying to organize teaching now according to this principle when possible. I had a great opportunity to conduct in learner-centered way the teaching of Biotechnology at Medix School South (now Fortis College) and General Chemistry at the University of Texas at Dallas, where I had the opportunity to learn a lot of techniques of learner-centered teaching.

These techniques allow increasing efficacy of teaching 2-3 fold, if we express it in the units of the student progress per hour of lecturing/instruction.

I also believe that teaching and learning are two sides of the same coin. Knowledge exchange is an
interactive, bidirectional process that involves both student and teacher. That is why I encourage students to ask their questions right in the middle of lecture, as lack of understanding should be cleared immediately.

I have more than 40 publications in peer reviewed journals (several in the scientific journals with impact factor over 10) devoted to different areas of Chemistry and Biology.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chemistry

I have extensive practical experience in wide variety of branches of chemistry - general, inorganic, organic, physical, etc. I gained this experience in different institutions, distributed all over the globe. The teaching experience in general chemistry that I gained at the University of Texas at Dallas helps me a lot to tutor high school students here.

Patient tutor

I was seeking help with Advanced Chemistry and found it. He was very patient and helpful with understanding these new skills. He taught he helped me understand the equations needed for finding molarity and its properties.
