Rutgers University (Genetics)
My name is Alex and I am 25 years old. I have a BA in Genetics, along with a minor in Modern Greek. I also work for Rutgers ODASIS program, where I tutor basic chemistry. I've done prior lab work and analyses of tobacco DNA and work on regulatory elements within the plastid genome. I have completed all general and most upper level science courses up to the undergraduate level and some graduate level courses. Specifically, I have completed Biology, Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Genetics, Biochemistry, Physics and a variety of science electives. I also have completed math courses up to college level calculus and basic statistics for research. Upon completing these courses, I've maintained a 3.9 GPA, so I feel very comfortable with most of the concepts involved. I am also fluent in Greek and speak a fair amount of French. I am willing to be flexible with tutoring times and hope to help students learn to master these difficult subjects. Feel free to contact me at any time. My name is Alex and I am 25 years old.

We have a high school sophomore who has taken AP Chem. In just two sessions, Alex has given him the confidence and knowledge to excel in class. They had to read up over summer to prep for a test right during the first week and our son got a 94%. Our son says that he has never had a tutor or a teacher like Alex before. Kudos!
Alex tutors my son with respect to my son's AP Chem class. Alex thoroughly knows the material (unlike other tutors in difficult subjects, he does not need to be told in advance what topics my son will ask to have covered) and is a pleasure to deal with. Both my son and I are very pleased with Alex's services and highly recommend him.
Alex is a great tutor. We typically use Alex to review for tests or to preview the next chapter.
He is great at explaining things and making difficult concepts easy to understand.
Also, we are involved in many sports and activities and have a very busy scheduler.
Alex is extremely flexible and always works around our crazy schedule !!
I highly recommend Alex as a tutor!!
Alex was the most helpful tutor I have ever met with. After our first session was over, I felt like he had taught me the material from an approach I was actually able to understand. Not only did he clearly explain problems and work through examples, he identified the underlining problem I was having in precalculus. I have been very lucky in finding Alex as a tutor, and look forward to working with him in my remaining math related classes. I would recommend Alex as a tutor for anyone who is struggling in math or science, because he was extremely informative and gave me the confidence to conquer a weakness of mine.
Alex has an ability to assimilate knowledge & convey the facts to my daughter. Perfect teaching style for my daughter (who needs to know the answer of "why" in everything).
We searched for a tutor who could help our daughter review the materials, get an in depth understanding of it as well as provide test taking strategies to aid in examination preparation. We actually secured three tutors. Alex has turned out be be such a gem and support to our daughter. He is patient, extremely bright, has an excellent knowledge of the subject area, motivated to share both the course knowledge as well as developing an appreciation for Biology. Our daughter has grown in both knowledge and confidence and is running an A in the course. Alex has helped her to excel in both biology and her lab. He has provided real practical assistance in test taking strategies and studying techniques. More importantly, her self concept has improved with respect to this subject which has reduced both her anxiety and stress level. We will be using him for Biology 102 as well. He is a real find.
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 feel very confident with the concepts covered in General Biology and have also taken many variants of the course, including development, evolution, heredity, genetics, biochemistry and systems physiology. I am comfortable with the material in most biology courses.
I have been a chemistry tutor for Rutger's University for over a year now and feel very comfortable with the material. I have also successfully completed many chemistry courses, including general chemistry, organic chemistry and biochemistry/molecular biology.
I am qualified as a genetics tutor because I am a genetics major completing my undergraduate research in genetics for Rutgers University. I have completed multiple genetics courses, including Heredity and Evolution, Genetic Analysis 1 and 2, Molecular Genetics, Developmental Genetics, Population Genetics and Bioninformatics. I have obtained an A in all of these classes and feel very comfortable teaching something I love.
I have completed both Organic Chemistry 1 and 2 at Rutgers University (which were both very difficult) and did well in both courses. After two semesters, I feel confident about the material presented and am comfortable with the reactions.
