About Alexandre

In 2008, I moved to the United States from French Guiana and started high school as a sophomore. As an ESL student in high school, I was challenged academically in various subjects, especially in English. During my first and hardest year in high school, I struggled with the majority of my classes, which forced me to seek help outside of the classroom. While I was getting tutored, I quickly realized that academic success was possible with proper guidance. The more support I received, the better I was doing in school. As a struggling student, I could only be grateful for the tremendous amount of help that I received from tutors. They gave me the time and attention that I needed in order to succeed and, most importantly, the tools to develop better learning habits. In 2011, with hard-work, determination, and academic guidance, I graduated from Buchanan High School with three consecutive Principal’s Honor Roll Awards for obtaining and maintaining a 4.0 GPA during the 2009, 2010, and 2011 school year.

In 2011, I started attending Fresno state with a major in Chemistry and quickly found myself providing academic support to classmates and friends. At first, I was surprised to be the person explaining chemical concepts and calculations to others knowing that I had difficulty in high school. However, I became confident in my ability to help students in need and decided to tutor. Starting from the fall semester of 2012, I began to tutor privately for Introductory Chemistry. In the same year, I declared French as my second major in order to improve my cultural knowledge and to be able to practice the language on a regular basis. Soon after, I started tutoring French as well. I am currently attending Fresno State in my last year pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry and French.

As a tutor, I want to help students who are struggling in their Chemistry and French classes to become more familiar with their studying materials by providing them with the right studying strategies and habits. Having tutored chemistry in the past, I noticed that students struggle in this challenging subject because of their thinking process rather than their intellectual capability. With proper guidance, chemistry can become a fun subject to learn. As a language learner myself, I am fully aware that there is no better way to learn a second language than to have regular practice sessions with native speakers. For that reason, time is one of the most important aspects in learning languages, which I am willing to give if that is what it takes to see students succeed. I understand that some students require more time and attention outside of class than others to be successful. As a result, I prefer to tutor with a one-on-one approach in order to give them the fullest of my attention.


Thank you for your time and consideration. If you feel the need to discuss my qualifications in more detail, feel free to contact me.
