About Alexis

I am currently working towards my doctorate of epidemiology at The Ohio State University. My research focuses on water and human health interactions. I am a graduate from Drexel University, where I earned a Master of Environmental Science and a Bachelor of Biological Science. In the past I served as the Lab Director for Drexel University at Burlington County College, where I taught lab courses and helped prepare the laboratory curriculum for biology students. I have also served as an adjunct professor at Temple University, Burlington County College and National University of Equatorial Guinea, where I taught biostatsitics, nutrition, and microbiology and tropical field studies. As a teacher I am encouraging, high-energy, and flexible. I love to help students reach their full potential by motivating them, helping them to fully understand concepts, and providing them with the tools they need to succeed.

When I am not working with students I spend my free time reading, volunteering with Big Brothers, Big Sisters, playing volleyball, running, and SCUBA diving. My "little sister" and I spend time together at museums, playing basketball, cooking, baking, and sometimes just going for walks. I love to stay busy and spend time with other positive, high-spirited people.

I have 7 years of experience tutoring for test prep, which come with a lot of tips and tricks to get through the math section of the ACT or the SAT quickly, painlessly and accurate. I'm certain I can help improve your score!

I have over 10 years of experience tutoring in the sciences. With degrees in biology and environmental science, and years of teaching biology and nutrition on the college level, I not only understand the material, but am able to bring it to the students' level. I also have practice tutoring for the ACT science section. This section seems intimidating, but I promise I can make it simple!

I have a lot of tips and tricks to get through the English sections of the ACT and the SAT quickly, painlessly and accurately. I'm certain I can help improve your score!

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.

Biostatistics

I have taken multiple biostatistics courses on the college level, including multivariate biostatistic and modern computational methods for biostatsitics. I have taught undergraduate biostatistics to public health students, and have tutored multiple students in biostatsitics. I am competent utilizing multiple statistical packages including R, SPSS, and STATA.
