About Alex


Bio

I have taught and tutored Organic Chemistry 1 and 2, as well as Chemistry, for the past five years, having the pleasure of meeting, getting to know, and teaching hundreds of students. What I love about tutoring compared to teaching is the ability to work one-on-one at the pace the student needs. I am not always able to work one-on-one as a teacher, but being one helps me be flexible and know how to meet the needs of all types of students.

I have taught and tutored Organic Chemistry 1 and 2, as well as Chemistry, for the past five years, having the pleasure of meeting, getting to know, and teaching hundreds of students. What I love about tutoring compared to teaching is the ability to work one-on-one at the pace the student needs. I am not always able to work one-on-one as a teacher, but being one helps me be flexible and know how to meet the needs of all types of students.

I have received numerous awards for teaching (ST Teacher of the Year, Outstanding NHS Teacher of the Year, Irreplaceable Teacher of PG County), which exemplifies not only my understanding of my content and ability to teach, but also my ability to relate to my students, understand them, and meet them where they are. Most students struggle because they get frustrated by a teacher or professor that that doesn't take the time to ensure understanding, or have been told too many times that they "just won't get it". Any student is capable of achieving well in a course if they have the right person to guide them there. I will work with your student continually until we reach that goal.

If you would like to get through organic chemistry unscathed, or are struggling as a chemistry student, please contact me. I have seen countless students in your situation thrive after getting that individualized attention they need. I will get you the resources necessary to do so. I look forward to working with you!

Orgo 1

My session with Alex was great. I came into the session very confused and ended the session having a much better understanding. Alex is very patient and is very good at listening to why and what you don’t understand and then tackles the problem imediately.

Kaitlyn, 4 lessons with Alex

Great session

Alex broke everything down for me and I was able to understand the concepts quickly. Also, he used step-by-step processes in order for me to understand clearly.

Azuri, 7 lessons with Alex

Great job!

Alex teaches to your learning level and goes at whatever pace is needed. He answers many questions and knows lots about the topic. He is flexible with time and sends many helpful items to help you succeed in the topic you may be struggling with.

Jennifer, 3 lessons with Alex

Knowledgable and patient

Alex was great and took time to not only show me the reactions but explain why we were doing each step! He was patient when I didn't understand a concept and drew out everything with online tools. I was nervous about the online tutoring but his resources are just as good as being in person!

Alison, 9 lessons with Alex

Very smart, great teacher!

Alex was able to explain topics in a manner that was easy for me to understand as well as show me how to apply that knowledge. He's very patient and willing to explain things more than one way to help you grasp the concepts. Overall, he was very helpful and great at explaining how you approach a problem.

Kimberly , 13 lessons with Alex

amazing!

All I can say is that...this was a great way to begin orgo chem. Alex made the session interesting and informative. his expertise was evident at the beginning. Cannot wait until the next session.

Brad, 38 lessons with Alex

Experienced, and informative

Alex did an amazing job on expanding on the fundamental principles of certain reactions. He filled in the holes that were often left out in lecture, making light bulb moments occur. Organic chemistry is hard because there is so many things to consider in a problem, And Alex understands this. He breaks things down in a nonchalant fashion and is extremely knowledgeable on the tiny aspects that govern a particular problem.

Marcos, 3 lessons with Alex
Tutor responded:

I'm so happy the session went so well for you Marcos. After spending so much time studying and reviewing like you have, I know it's frustrating to still feel lost. These fast paced courses are tough! Keep doing those practice problems and reviewing the fundamentals of mechanisms and I am confident you will get back on track! It's been a pleasure, and I look forward to continuing our sessions.

Thorough, Patient, Amazing Tutor

Alex helped me tremendously with understanding mechanisms and synthesis problems. He not only went through the problems, but explained why each step is important and why it happens. He also wrote notes as we went through the assignment and emailed them to me so I can refer back if needed. Definitely the best tutoring experience I've had so far!

Michele, 3 lessons with Alex
Tutor responded:

I'm so glad you found our sessions and my resources helpful in improving your understanding, Michele. That's always my goal! It can definitely be frustrating and demoralizing when you miss instruction, so I am glad we were able to connect and get you back on track. Keep up the positive attitude and determination and I know you're going to rock that final!

Extremely knowledgeable and fantastic tutor

Alex is a really great tutor. He explains things in a way that makes them immediately understandable. He also works out problems step by step, and gives you the work to take home and review and practice. He has a very patient way about him. I would highly recommend him to anyone struggling in chemistry, he will get you back on the path to success.

Kristin, 4 lessons with Alex
Tutor responded:

Kristin, you were such a pleasure to work with. It is obvious that you take the time necessary to study our notes have the sessions and practice, practice, practice! I'm glad we were able to find each other and ensure that B! Fingers crossed the final goes well and that jumps to an A! Best of luck!
