About Alexander

I am a Greek-American having lived both in urban and rural settings, in Athens, Maryland, D.C., and now Chicago, I have been exposed to a diversity of educative environments and have learned from them, as well as tutor in many of them. I graduated with honors with a B.S. degree from the University of Maryland and have since found my passion to tutor only grows, wanting to share my knowledge with the younger students who are battling with many of the same problems and classes as I did.

I am still fresh out of school, and thus have not forgotten the hardships or the manner in which students experience there difficulties or the manner and importance of conveying the solutions in a positive and meaningful way. I have tutored many students both voluntarily through organizations, as well as for money. Through tutoring, I hope to alleviate a lot of the stress and difficulties that many students may experience in their classes, while at the same time inspiring them and making them passionate about the material and field of study. I like to show them how good it feels to improve, and how these mundane classes can lead to very interesting professions in the future.

I was very good at all the basic math during middle and high school and excelled both in the classroom and in the extra-curricular Math competitions. Furthermore, I helped my younger brother through many of those same classes and thus got all the math reinforced.

I have a B.S. degree in the Biological Sciences, with many extra elective classes in Physiology, Neurobiology, and Biochemistry, having also excelled in the fundamental classes of biology and chemistry before moving on to the higher level classes. I also assisted many of my classmates in those classes, as well as tutored younger students after having finished those classes.

I was born and raised in Greece, and have studied quite a bit of Greek literature. I also have a minor in Modern Greek Language and Literature and have a letter of recommendation from my Greek professor.
