I am a Smith College graduate and previously received Massachusetts teaching certification for high school chemistry. I am currently a PhD student in biomedical engineering. I have more than 5 years of college chemistry tutoring experience, including lab work, and I also have experience tutoring high school chemistry in addition to physics . Based on my application processes, I also offer critiques of personal statements.

I specialize in interactive, visual learning, whether that means running up and down stairs to explain a physics problem or building molecular models to understand chemistry problems. I adapt my teaching styles to the individual needs of the student.

Excellent tutor

Words cannot express how happy and grateful I am with the tutoring services Alexis has provided. My son, a senior in high school, was having difficulty mastering the subject matter of Algebra 2. In the span of 3 months she was able to make a notable improvement in his overall comprehension and test taking abilities, I believe she is truly gifted.

Lucky I found her

Alexis has been tutoring my daughter in Algebra II and Chemistry for almost 3 months and the change has been excellent. We immediately saw improvement and while there were some hiccups along the way, my daughter has a much better understanding of Chemistry and it has been reflected in her grades. She is more comfortable with Algebra II and is working hard at getting a better grasp of it, but there has still been wonderful progress. Alexis is very patient and gives little tips for remembering things. After each session, before I even get home, she posts a synopsis of what was done during the tutoring session, what we should focus on and if there is anything specific she feels either my daughter or I need to keep in mind. She has also been very accommodating in extra sessions or longer sessions based on exam schedules. I found this site by accident and Alexis by researching available tutors in my area. She was able to tutor in both subjects and I am very glad it has worked out so well. I would wholeheartedly recommend Alexis for tutoring.
