About Alix


Bio

Hi, I’m Alix! I graduated summa cum laude from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a masters in Polymer Chemistry and a bachelors in Biochemistry. I have worked as a private tutor for over 10 years, mainly tutoring science, math, and English. I have a huge passion for science and love to share it with others. It’s very fulfilling to help students understand subjects that have been confusing them; seeing their faces light up when they regain confidence in themselves means the world to me!

Hi, I’m Alix! I graduated summa cum laude from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a masters in Polymer Chemistry and a bachelors in Biochemistry. I have worked as a private tutor for over 10 years, mainly tutoring science, math, and English. I have a huge passion for science and love to share it with others. It’s very fulfilling to help students understand subjects that have been confusing them; seeing their faces light up when they regain confidence in themselves means the world to me!

I have been tutoring since high school, and worked for a private tutoring company called Grade Potential throughout college and grad school. I was also a member of the chemistry fraternity at my university; one of our outreach programs was free chemistry tutoring on Wednesday nights. Additionally, I worked as a TA in grad school, which involved both teaching and one-on-one work with students. Finally, my current full-time career as a chemist requires the use of chemistry and math on a daily basis, so these concepts are always fresh in my mind.

Please reach out to me if you have any questions or if you would like to schedule a lesson!

Patient and Flexible with schedule

Alix is very knowledgeable and a very patient tutor. She helped my son with preparation for his ACT, not only with science and math, but with his confidence. Highly recommend Alix for your tutoring needs.

I'm so glad to hear it Leslie! Thank you for the amazing feedback. I really enjoyed working with Jake and I'm glad he felt prepared and confident for his ACT. =]

Alix was patient and encouraging with my daughter. She was also very relaxed so my daughter was able to feel relaxed, too.
