About Alexander

Hello all! I'm new to this site, but I have experience teaching in a study group setting. I've also worked as a researcher in the past, so I'm more than capable of presenting complicated concepts in formal and informal settings, before peers, the scientific community, and lay people. Towards the end of my time in my role as researcher, I trained my successor, and consider myself adept at imparting such ideas to others.

I am a recent graduate of Georgetown University, where I received an M.S. in Physiology and Biophysics (GPA 3.821). My undergraduate degree is a B.S. in Biology and Biomedical Sciences (with a minor in Chemistry) from Salve Regina University (GPA 3.921).

I've previously worked as a researcher (over a 4-year period, on the development of a surface plasmon resonance immunoassay), and have long since realized that you can learn anything, as long as you approach it properly.

I've long been fascinated by the workings of the human body, and should be more than capable of helping you learn them too. Let me know if you need any help!

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.

Anatomy

I have an M.S. in Physiology and Biophysics, and as such, I've taken multiple classes pertaining to anatomy.

Chemistry

I have a minor in chemistry from Salve Regina University, in addition to the biochemistry taken in the process of obtaining my master's degree.

Chess

I'm an avid chess player. I've played it as a hobby ever since I was a child, when my grandfather (who played chess on a competitive level) introduced me to the game. It's one of my favorite zero-sum games.

Genetics

I've taken (and passed, with an A-) this course in my undergraduate education. It was a 400 level course, and encompassed Mendelian genetics, gene replication, modification, damage, mutations, evolution, genetic engineering, phylogenies and taxonomic organizations (with relation to genetics), cell cycle regulation, epigenetics, DNA and RNA differences based on cells (prokaryotes, eukaryotes, and archaea), and DNA folding/storage. As such, I should be more than capable of tutoring in such a subject.
