Universidad Nacional de Cordoba, Argentina (Chemistry)
University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez (Master's)
University of Massachusetts at Amherst (PhD)
I am fully bilingual, being fluent in English and Spanish. I have been living in the US for more than 20 years. I have taught college-level chemistry classes in English for many years. I've tutored at all school and college levels since I was in high school.
I received a Master's and PhD in chemistry from US-accredited universities (the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, respectively). I have taught and tutored chemistry for over 15 years at the university level (since I was an undergraduate student). I can tutor almost any chemistry: organic, general, introductory, etc. I can also tutor algebra I and II and Spanish. Please, check my profile for other subjects I am qualified to tutor.
I was born in Argentina, so my mother tongue is Spanish. There are not many Spanish tutors who can give you the advantage of a true Spanish speaker. I have been in the US since 1995, so you should not have any problem understanding my English.
As a former professor of chemistry, I can provide my students with the unique feedback and insight that comes from the instructor side. How many other tutors can do that? I know what is important to know and what is not. I will not waste your time by endlessly hammering on topics that are not important. I will give you the 'short version' of every topic to help you understand the basics. I will teach you problem-solving skills by reasoning. I will help you understand the topics that are crucial to your grade and your understanding of future topics.
Please, review my cancellation policy and feel free to ask any questions before scheduling a tutoring lesson. Your scheduling of a tutoring lesson implies that you have read, understood and agreed with the cancellation policy in my profile.
A tutoring session that is cancelled in the last 24 hrs will be billed at the same rate and length as the tutoring session scheduled. This is to ensure that other students seeking tutoring help have the time slot available to them. And also to allow re-scheduling my activities accordingly.

We have come to know this gentleman who has tutored our daughter to be a kind, considerate and knowledgeable man who really knows his fields of science but who is also kind careful and considerate. He has been responsive when schedules did not seem convenient and he has been polite and understanding at all times. Moreover, he has brought out the best in Tiffany who has gone on to excellence in her high school and college school work with an enthusiasm that can only be reflective of this marvelous teacher !
My husband, who is himself a physician, and I enthusiastically recommend this gentleman for anyone in need of a tutor in his fields of expertise.
Alejandro was very helpful to my daughter with solving problems that she was having difficulty with. I do believe that she will need additional sessions, as she is lacking in depth understanding in the subject matter.
Alejandro is an EXCELLENT tutor. Always on time and very knowledgeable. He is very patient and takes his time to make sure you under the material before moving on to the next area of the subject matter.
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.
I worked for The Princeton Review in Amherst for 3 years, teaching groups of students how to score higher grades in the MCAT test. The most important issue when students take the MCAT is to understand that most students know most of the subject, but do not manage their time correctly... and they run out of time answering questions. I can teach you not only the basic material that covers 95% of the content of the science and math subjects, but also tricks to manage your test-taking time better.
I have been using using Windows software and operating systems since the beginning of Windows 3.1. This includes all versions of Windows up to the most recent one, Windows 7 (since 1992). I also have a PhD in chemistry and work with computers on a daily basis.
My undergraduate (BS) and my 2 graduate degrees (MS and PhD) were in Organic Chemistry. I have taught and tutored Organic Chemistry I and II (as a 2 semester course), Introductory Organic Chemistry (as a 1 semester course) both at the college/university levels and also high school.
