About Alex

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.

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.


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.

Organic Chemistry

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.

Simply the best! — 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! ...
