About Alexander

Hello!

I'm here to tutor you. I provide tutoring in Biology, General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry.

I have a broad range of experience in education that I draw upon in my tutoring sessions. With MS in Physiology and Biophysics I bring an in depth understanding of many foundational and higher level scientific concepts in a relatable, fun, and engaging manner. Serving in a role of Adjunct Professor at CUNY and having been an MCAT prep instructor at Kaplan allows me to quickly engage my students and employ effective teaching methodology.

Additionally, I have over five years of tutoring experience, since my time at the Physical Sciences Learning center at Hunter College I have helped many students to successfully prepare for their final examinations and standardized tests. Besides these credentials I scored a 94-95th percentile on every section of the MCAT exam.

My research interests lie in organic synthesis (synthesis of quinone monoketals), computational chemistry (lowest system energy calculations using B3LYP functional), and public health (with emphasis on HPV and cardiovascular disease).

I am happy to be a resource for you to improve your school performance.
Please inquire if you are interested in improving your MCAT performance, as I can provide unbiased study recommendations that directly suit your needs, even if you are struggling with CARS section.

My expectations:
- I work with college level (CC, UG and post-bacc) and high school students.
- Students - if we agree on tutoring, please forward me the list of topics you would like to cover, even if we agree on multiple sessions.
- Tutoring sessions must be a minimum of 2 hours.
- I will not commute to NJ or Staten Island. Bronx and Queens are on a case-by-case basis.

Let me know if you have any question and let's learn some science!

Warmly,
Alex

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.

Biology

I tutored high school, AP, college level Biology to groups and students individually. I interned in an Organic Synthesis lab requiring thorough knowledge of Biology, Organic Chem and Biochemistry. I am passionate about Biology and Chemistry.

Chemistry

I have tutored chemistry for 3 years at the physical sciences learning center at Hunter College, was a TA for General Chemistry 1 & 2, and tutored general chemistry privately. I also worked in organic chemistry and computational chemistry laboratories.

Organic Chemistry

I was an ACS Chemistry major, tutored OCHEM privately and in a physical sciences learning center at Hunter College; I also worked in organic synthesis and computational chemistry labs at Hunter College.
