About Alexander

I have a life-long love of learning. I enjoyed learning as a student in school and take every opportunity to help others when they want to learn. Many people ask me if I am happy to have completed a Ph.D. so I can be done learning. I tell them that I believe learning is an ongoing process that has nothing to do with holding a degree and that I strive to learn something new every day.

I tutored fellow students in math and science through high school, college and graduate school. I continue to tutor friends, family members and students who ask me for help. One of the most rewarding experiences for me is when a student of mine discovers how to solve problems and how to discover the answer, not just that they have the right answer. I teach through the application of critical thinking skills, not by rote or memorization.

I hold a B.S. in Microbiology and a Ph.D. in Molecular Genetics. Both of these disciplines require strong math skills. I especially have strong skills in algebra, precalculus and probability/statistics. I have always enjoyed teaching these subjects and my students have seen an increase in grades and confidence in solving math problems.

I enjoy teaching biology, math, genetics, microbiology and music. I am available to tutor in person or online. My fees may be a little higher than some, but I bring a lot of experience and success to the table. I promise I'll be exited to work with you and my goal is to help my students to become excited about learning new skills. I'm patient and will take the time necessary to make sure my students understand concepts. I am available for multiple sessions each week, if desired. I also offer discounts for students who wish to sign up for group lessons (3-5 per group). I hope to hear from you soon!
