In 2015, Alec graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Italian. He received A's in all four organic chemistry courses offered at the University of Michigan. In 2016, he scored in the 99th percentile on the DAT (Dental Admission Test) and 99.6th percentile on the organic chemistry section (25 OC). He currently attends Columbia University College of Dental Medicine as a second year student (D2).

Since 2014, he has privately tutored over 30 undergraduates in organic chemistry. Over several hundred hours, Alec has helped undergraduates from various science backgrounds.

"Organic chemistry is not math - answers are not uniform from place to place."
- Brian P. Coppola, PhD in Organic Chemistry, Professor at the University of Michigan
That said, getting a handle on your professor's approach and style at the start is key to cracking the exams. Typically, before lessons, Alec asks that students email their course material such as provided practice exams, quizzes, worksheets, and keys. Feel free to reach out if you are interested in receiving tutoring.

ONE OF ALEC'S SUCCESS STORIES: "Congratulations to my student Sarah R. for scoring 100% on her CHEM 3362 Exam III. Sarah is an organic chemistry student outside of Wyzant who found out about my tutoring service from a local campus flyer in 2017. She and I meet at least once a week for 2 hours and has raised her grade from a C to an A. She plans to attend pharmacy school in 2020."

Organic Chemistry

In 2015, I graduated from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor with A's in the four organic chemistry courses CHEM 210, 211, 215 and 216. Then in 2016, I finished the DAT (Dental Admission Test) with a 99.6th percentile in the organic chemistry section (25 OC) and a 99th percentile overall (23 AA). During the last two semesters, I have accumulated over 200 hours of private tutoring in organic chemistry.

Knowledgeable and patient

I learned a new concept from Alexander that wasn’t even covered in class, yet there was a question on the practice exam that necessitated knowledge of that concept. I like that he shows me why the wrong answer is wrong.

Excellent tutor!

Alec is very friendly, prompt, and is always prepared for the lesson. He is very thorough and my son's grades have dramatically improved after just a few lessons. I wish I had found him sooner!
