About Alejandro


Bio

I have a Ph.D. in Chemistry from MIT, as well as a B.S. in Chemistry and a B.S. in Biochemistry/Molecular Biology from UC-Irvine. In the past I have run chemistry workshops and tutored many undergraduate students. In addition, as part of my requirement for grad school I was a teaching assistant for two laboratory courses (5.311 and 5.301), which has given me plenty of experience mentoring and teaching students of various needs. During my time at MIT I also earned a teaching certificate to...

I have a Ph.D. in Chemistry from MIT, as well as a B.S. in Chemistry and a B.S. in Biochemistry/Molecular Biology from UC-Irvine.

In addition, as part of my requirement for grad school I was a teaching assistant for two laboratory courses (5.311 and 5.301), which has given me plenty of experience mentoring and teaching students of various needs. During my time at MIT I also earned a teaching certificate to strengthen my teaching skills.

In the near future I will be moving on to do more laboratory research, but before leaving MA I have the desire to help out and perhaps inculcate a passion for Chemistry in young students. If you are interested in getting a Chemistry tutor near Cambridge, MA (within 20 mi) feel free to contact me.

Very personable and helpful tutor!

Responds in a very timely manner and easy to deal with. Helped my son find shortcuts for formulas and problems for his AP Chemistry class. Was punctual and personable. Will continue to hire and highly recommend!

Alan, 3 lessons with Alejandro

Well Qualified and Patient Teacher

It's pretty obvious that Alejandro is brilliant and sometimes brilliant people have a hard time teaching. But Alejandro is different - he is brilliant and communicates really well with my daughter who is taking AP Chem. She learned a lot in just one lesson. We are lucky to have him as our tutor and we are going to be using him a lot this year.

Christopher, 7 lessons with Alejandro

Great Chemistry Tutor

I received a 61 on my first exam without Alex. After meeting with Alex, through hard work I was able to increase my scores eventually gaining B's on my exams and a B in the course. I highly recommend Alex as a tutor.

Extraordinary Educator

Alejandro L. is an extraordinary educator in every respect. His knowledge of mathematics, the sciences, and all their subspecialties encompasses an impressive breadth and depth. He also possesses an unparalleled ability to impart this information to his students so they understand, integrate, and become able to use that knowledge. Alejandro focuses on academic goals in each session in an enthusiastic, interesting, and fun way. Since he possesses a high level of academic skill, he encourages the same from his students. He also understands his students' strengths, weaknesses, and interests, so his lessons are individualized as well as highly organized. Fortunately, since we did not attend lessons with our student, Alejandro communicates articulately with parents regarding a student's progress. Alejandro is also of sound character, exhibits professional behavior, and it was a pleasure to get to know him. I enthusiastically and wholeheartedly recommend this talented young man as an educator for any student requiring assistance reviewing mathematic and scientific concepts as well as any student who wishes to expand their knowledge by learning new concepts.

Karen, 8 lessons with Alejandro

Fantastic tutor - one of the best I've ever used.

Simply put, Alex is a fantastic tutor. He was always on time and exceedingly well prepared for every session. Alex had a consistent knack for recognizing the concepts that I was having trouble with, and then breaking them down into terms that were easier to understand. My grades in the class definitely improved with his help, and I heartily recommend Alex as a tutor.

Phil, 5 lessons with Alejandro

Terrific tutor.

My daughter tells me that Alex was able to very clearly explain the algebra concepts she was having difficulty with, plus he takes notes on their lessons, for her, in her notebook, so she can refer back to them while working on algebra problems on her own. I realized that a 14 year old doesn't really know how to take good notes yet, so that was an especially helpful thing. She is learning so quickly from him that we probably don't need as many sessions as I planned with him, but oh well. They seem to be covering most of a semester's worth of algebra in 4-5 lessons. Alex is also very easy to do business with - he answers emails and voicemails promptly and is able to schedule sessions a couple of weeks in advance, which is important for my family as our lives are pretty busy right now. My daughter was a sad, stressed-out math student, and now she feels confident and prepared for her examinations. Alex is worth every penny I've paid for this!

Great instructor

Alejandro's teaching method is very easy to pick up. He is patient, and will def. build your confidence in Chemistry. I hate this subject, but after one session with Alejandro, I feel confident to solve every problem.
