College of Charleston (Biochemistry)
Florida State University (PhD)
I have been a student nearly all of my life, graduating from FSU with my Ph.D. in Biochemistry in 2013. Since then I have worked in several research labs studying new modes of treatment for disease and teaching younger students concepts and techniques. Throughout my career at FSU I have enjoyed teaching chemistry and biochemistry labs and courses. I also volunteer several days a week tutoring math to underprivileged high school students.
I am available to tutor high school and college level chemistry, biology, and biochemistry as well as math through the calculus level.
I look forward to hearing from you and working with you to achieve your goals. I have been a student nearly all of my life, graduating from FSU with my Ph.D. in Biochemistry in 2013.

Alix is a patient and extremely knowledgable tutor. She is currently tutoring my daughter with BSC2010 and is extremely helpful and tutors with intentional strategies. It is apparent that the outcome of student success is her goal for each lesson. We could not be any more satisfied with her knowledge, patience, and application of material content.
Alix has been tutoring my son for over a year for chemistry and geometry., . With her help he was successful in passing both subjects as well as the EOC exams last year . Would not hesitate to recommend her.
She helps me go over everything that I need to learn and understand better for my chemistry class. Highly recommend. Great tutor, kind person
My daughter really enjoyed working with Alix. She helped her prepare for the chemistry final exam (CHM1045). We will be calling her again.
She did very well with slowing it down and explaining how it really works. Very well put together for math.
We reviewed material for my first Chem 2 exam. We discussed intermolecular interactions, polarity and dipole moments, and physical properties of solutions. Reviewed equations to calculate freezing point/melting temperature, osmotic pressure, and vapor pressure. She didn't let me give up or give answers away, and made me work towards understanding the concept.
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.
I tutor pre algebra through pre calculus students in high school and college courses.
