About Aleksandr

As someone who has struggled countless hours over material, I have made it my goal to help other students avoid such terror. All it takes for the information to click is one missing piece. Once all the material falls in place, I help secure it. I have learned the hard way that it is more important to understand the materials as opposed to just memorize it, and that's why I'm here, to help you get to the same shortcut.

I have been a tutor for a few years now, with most of my experience with college students in the math and sciences. I have tutored individual students, small groups and large groups as well (up to 80 at a time). Recently, there was a change of heart and I looked towards helping high school students with exam and regents prep. Tutoring in the math and sciences is something that I greatly enjoy doing with a desire to help others understand it too. On the weekends, I take the time to tutor chemistry and biology to students in other colleges.

As a tutor and a teacher for the living environment regents and Algebra I regents, I have accumulated the experience in order to ensure success on the examinations. I have gone through 10+ years of previous exams in order to boil down the materials that are consistently tested on the regents.

My teaching methods include problem based learning. I believe that if students learns how to tackle problems, identify key words and eliminates silly answer choices that they will succeed. This method promotes thinking as opposed to rote memorization.

I attempt to pass on the information to all of my students through analogies and real life examples, experiences that they can connect to that will allow them to better understand the fundamentals of the sciences. I will help you reach the "ohhhh" reaction so you can go and ace your exams with confidence.

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.

Biochemistry

Starting from the Fall 2014 semester, I have had the marvelous opportunity to aid in teaching 280 students for the fall semester and 80 students for the following spring semester in introductory biochemistry. My duties included simplifying material in a way that others may understand it, problem solving, as well as administering and grading exams. After tackling the concepts, we proceed onto the end of the chapter problem solving. As someone who works in a biochemistry lab as well, I have an excellent fundamental understanding of process behind the concepts.

Chemistry

In the past couple of years I have been a private chemistry tutor for a variety of colleges in the New York Metropolitan area. For most of my students, I work with them throughout the semester to ensure that they score well on their exams. Previously, I have worked with students on homework problems, exams from a test bank and labs.

Regents

I have been a Living Environment Regents tutor to multiple kids, including group sessions and individuals. I have managed classes of up to 20 students in Regents prep, and doing individual tutoring in a test prep center as well as on my own time. I promote problem based learning and utilize previous regents to extract the concepts and instill them into my students.
