Hi, I'm Alexis, a 23 year-old with a passion for teaching. I am currently pursuing a PhD in Neuroscience at Vanderbilt University, where I recently graduated with Honors. My current career goal is to become a college professor, but I love working with students of all ages through Wyzant.

I specialize in teaching a variety of sciences at many levels. As a tutor, I like to take a very engaging approach. I believe that a full understanding of concepts in any subject is crucial to success, and I love to help students make the distinction between true understanding and rote memorization. Thinking out of the box and fully engaging with students by keeping things fun and interesting is so important to me and my student's learning experience. I work to solidify and strengthen what the student brings to the table, and help them to realize they are capable of what may seem impossible.

One-on-one tutoring is preferred, but I am open to group tutoring, as some students may benefit from this environment.

I emphasize true understanding over rote memorization. In order to achieve this, I help students with organization skills, effective note-taking/class participation, and identifying key concepts. Working with students to find their best way to study is also crucial, as not all students study the same way. I have helped students from the elementary school to collegiate levels better their study strategies.

Violin

I have played the violin for 15 years (private lessons for 10 years), was part of my school's orchestra for 7 years, played in a chamber group for 5 years, was concert master for 1 year, was a part of the concertino for my high school's performance of Handel's Messiah, and continue to play in college. I have taught violin to several children in my neighborhood who could not afford private lessons elsewhere.

Great Tutor

Alexis is providing my son with additional options on how to study and really bring concepts together. She is patient and is helping him to better focus on what he needs to do to have good grades. The thing I like the most is that she sits down with her students to discuss what their goals are. I think this allows them to really buy into the process and have ownership. I would recommend her to anyone.

Thanks so much Jenese, it’s been such a pleasure working with y’all!

Very knowledgeable and Relatable

Alexis did a great job tutoring our son for his ACT test. She gave him resources to reinforce the lesson and tricks to help improve his score. He said she was helpful and very nice.
