About Alex

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!

Monica, your daughter was such a pleasure to work with! She was such a hard worker, highly motivated to succeed, and understands what she knows and has challenges with. Having a great student like Sydney makes tutoring a breeze! I wish her all the best with Orgo 2; I'm confident she will do well.

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 have taught chemistry and organic chemistry (1 and 2) for the past five years.

Organic Chemistry

I also have a BS in Chemistry and a BS in Secondary Education, and currently hold a Standard Professional Certificate as a certified teacher in Maryland.

Knowledgeable The Best!

Working with Alex was the best experience I have ever had. If I did not understand something would explain it in different ways until I did. He made Organic Chemistry fun to learn!
