Bio

I am a dedicated student at Portland Community College and Oregon State University, where I am studying both Bioscience Technology and Biochemistry and Biophysics. I am capable of tutoring a variety of topics, including English, Portuguese, Python, Web Development, Biology, Chemistry, and Math (elementary math to differential equations!).

I have completed math through Calculus 3, so I have no trouble tutoring most math topics on the fly. I am more than capable of teaching more advanced...

I am a dedicated student at Portland Community College and Oregon State University, where I am studying both Bioscience Technology and Biochemistry and Biophysics. I am capable of tutoring a variety of topics, including English, Portuguese, Python, Web Development, Biology, Chemistry, and Math (elementary math to differential equations!).

I have completed math through Calculus 3, so I have no trouble tutoring most math topics on the fly. I am more than capable of teaching more advanced subjects, but for these, I like to have prior notice to ensure I am most prepared to help my students. As a Biochem major, I have studied many types of chemistry, biology, and physics, and have been quite successful in these classes. This means I have the experience and skill needed to tutor a wide variety of science subjects. When it comes to programming, I am more than capable of teaching computational logic is most languages. For more advanced requirements, I have the most experience with Python, which I used extensively as a bioinformatics intern for a Cancer Immunotherapy institute in Portland.

I have extensive experience helping teach students of many ages. I've taught elementary school students the basics of HTML, Javascript, and CSS at summer camps explained water quality and water safety to 5th graders in outdoor school and guided Boy Scouts of all ages in learning leadership and outdoor skills. I have also served as Teacher's Aids in IB Chemistry and English at Lincoln High School, which has given me experience with helping that age group learn.

My approach to tutoring centers around connecting the knowledge that a student already has to concepts they are trying to understand - I believe this allows them to conceptually comprehend what they are learning. When a student is struggling, I am patient, and I guide them through problems by breaking it down into smaller chunks they can solve more easily. After they can understand and solve the smaller chunks, I enable them to guide themselves through new problems so they learn to apply their understanding in unfamiliar situations.

Thank you for reading my profile and considering me as a tutor for your student! I offer very a competitive fee for a wide variety of subjects and I have experience teaching students of all ages. In my tutoring, I aim to be friendly and patient, and I firmly believe that a strong relationship with the student is an excellent way to help encourage progress.

If you are interested in scheduling an introductory session, please contact me. I love teaching and I will be very excited to hear from you :)

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Alex is one of the best tutors you can find for high school students. Very patient, flexible and pleasant instructor. Kids have the feeling/experience of working 1:1 with their own teacher in Class.

Respectful + Well-Prepared

Alex came to tutor my twin six-year-olds with their math. He asked questions ahead of time to gauge their learning styles and came prepared with worksheets. He was well-prepared and engaging.

Great teacher, so positive and patient!

Alex was awesome in helping my daughter get up to speed early in the semester. He gave her confidence in some of the areas where she was feeling weak. Once they went through a concept he gave her more trial problems and encouragement when she got them correct. Just what she needed and and we will definitely use him again!
