About Alex

Though I received my PhD in chemistry in November 2016, I've been tutoring students in biochemistry and organic chemistry at the college level for eight years. I feel fortunate to be in a position to tutor what is considered complicated subject matter, as it provides immense satisfaction for both the tutor and student. The harder the task, the greater sense of accomplishment we can both feel through the improvement of the student's confidence and grades. I am happy to tutor both high school and college level material.

While I have specifically tutored biochemistry and organic chemistry, I have strong foundations in general chemistry, earth science, and genetics. I am a published author in the fields of polymer chemistry and biodegradable plastics, with a specialization in biomaterials and tissue engineering. I am happy to tutor both high school and college level material.

My schedule currently allows for evening and weekend tutoring. Please feel free to contact me about tutoring during those times that work best for you. Thank you for your time!

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.

Chemistry

I have both taught and tutored organic chemistry at the college level, and have published papers in the scientific literature in the field of organic chemistry.

Genetics

I have a bachelors degree in biochemistry, which requires half of its classwork to relate to genetics. Additionally, my PhD involves the use of genetically modified bacteria.

Organic Chemistry

I have both taught and tutored organic chemistry at the college level, and have published papers in the scientific literature in the field of organic chemistry.

Very good at teaching — I had given Alex a list of topics in Chemistry that my son was struggling with, and he arrived early and prepared to deal with those topics. My 16-year-old son found him to be very calm and easy to be with. He presented the information in a way that my son could understand it. My son appeared more confident after the session. We have booked him for two more session this week! ...
