About Alex

I recently graduated from Cal Poly Pomona and have a bachelor's degree in biochemistry. I've tutored general chemistry, organic chemistry, general biology, and math up to college algebra for three years at the Cal Poly Pomona Learning Resource Center. I earned certification from the College Reading and Learning Association. I love tutoring because it helps me to review old material and sometimes I learn something new about the topic.

I recognize and have been trained to understand that learning is to go at whatever pace suits your needs. Tutoring happens because a professor maybe wasn't clear during lecture or office hours. My job then, is not quite to teach, but guide you where you're having difficulty by diagnosing why you might be having trouble understanding a topic. I teach by asking questions to challenge you to think for yourself and develop study habits.

Please let me know if you'd like tutoring in chemistry, biology, or math. I'm eager to help you out with your studies!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 was a chemistry major in college. While I received B's throughout the three quarter series I took at Cal Poly, having tutored the subject for the last three years at Cal Poly has really reinforced the way I teach general chemistry. On my MCAT physical sciences section, which is chemistry and physics, I got a 14 out of 15.

Organic Chemistry

As a recent graduate from Cal Poly, I hold a bachelor's in biochemistry. I took a series of 3 quarters in organic chemistry, and received an A, A-, and A in the courses. I've also tutored organic chemistry for the past three years at the Learning Resource Center at Cal Poly. I can provide references and documents, if necessary.
