About Alex

I have six years of experience tutoring in a wide array of subjects and with various services ranging from my time as a TA and Hofstra University tutor to online tutoring through chegg. I specialize in the sciences, particularly those tested on the MCAT. I scored a 519 on the new MCAT and have managed to improve the retake scores on the MCAT for everyone of my students. I excel at taking the difficult, dense, and complex concepts found on the MCAT and in undergraduate science courses like organic chemistry and biochemistry, and breaking them down into easy to understand ideas. I will teach you why something is the way it is making it far easier for you to retain information than simply memorizing it.

I typically have lessons build off of one another and usually administer a short quiz at the beginning of each subsequent lesson to ensure you are studying while we are not together and to quickly catch and correct any mistakes or forgotten concepts from the previous lesson. With my help you will have a growing comprehension of even the most difficult subjects.

My knowledge of the sciences comes from a myriad of sources; degree in Biology with minor in Biochemistry, 1 year as a TA for advanced biology classes including genetics, official Hofstra University biology group tutor, and 6 years of experience tutoring for the sciences.

Scored a 519 (98th percentile) on the new MCAT and since then have been sharing the information I know and the skills I learned to succeed on it with others. By applying my general knowledge of the subjects tested on top of my significant tutoring experience I can prepare you for the MCAT unlike anyone else.

I am available 9-9pm 7 days a week in most cases and am willing to work both online or in-person depending on your preference. I live extremely close to Hofstra and have access to their library so that is always a great potential tutoring location. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you want to improve your MCAT score or get through a difficult science class.

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.

Genetics

I am a biology major and got an A in the most advanced genetics class offered at Hofstra University as well as the highest score in the class on the final. I was then invited and served as a Genetics class TA for one full year. I have two years experience tutoring in this subject.

MCAT

I got a 519 on the new MCAT on 6/19/15, since then I have been tutoring other students on how to succeed on the MCAT and have seen incredible successes! With my expert knowledge of the test, the sciences, and my own unique CARS strategy there is no better option. All of my students have seen improvement including students taking the MCAT not for the first time where I have had increases from 498 to a 509 and even most recently a 492 to 507. I can help you succeed as well.

Organic Chemistry

I have taken a year of organic chemistry with top grades in the course and began tutoring it soon after that. I have 3 years now of experience tutoring this course with nothing but positive feedback including one student through Wyzant who requested me and left me a great review. I got a letter of recommendation from my organic chemistry professor in college due to my skills in that area. I also then mastered it for the MCAT which also was successful. I have two students I am currently tutoring weekly in organic chemistry for some time who recommend me to other students frequently.

EXCELLENT TUTOR

Alex is a excellent tutor, my daughter enjoyed working with him. After their session she was very talkative about AP Biology, and how Alex explained genetics much better than her teacher.
