I have taught and tutored Organic Chemistry 1 and 2, as well as Chemistry, for the past five years, having the pleasure of meeting, getting to know, and teaching hundreds of students. What I love about tutoring compared to teaching is the ability to work one-on-one at the pace the student needs. I am not always able to work one-on-one as a teacher, but being one helps me be flexible and know how to meet the needs of all types of students.

I have received numerous awards for teaching (ST Teac...
Reviews
Alex taught me Organic Chemistry 2 and was super helpful! He went out of his way to make sure that I understood the problems and would cover things multiple times in different ways until I understood them. He was very polite and encouraging throughout the course. I would definitely recommend him as a tutor!

My session with Alex was great. I came into the session very confused and ended the session having a much better understanding. Alex is very patient and is very good at listening to why and what you don?t understand and then tackles the problem imediately.

Alex has been incredibly helpful with Organic Chemistry. He is very well versed with the information and makes sure that you understand everything. Since starting with Alex I have been able to keep with the class lectures and feel very confident for my test.
- Michael S. from Merchantville, NJ
He has helped me understand the basics behind the harder concepts like resonance and hybridization. This helps me continue to work forward confidently. I think it is important to understand that there needs to be explanations behind certain topics, which he provided efficiently.

If you are searching Wyzant for an Organic Chemistry tutor, I promise you do not need to look any further, Alex is your man. His understanding of the subject matter allows him to teach you in away that a chemistry novice can comprehend. I just finished a 4-week Organic 1 summer course and without Alex I would have been crying myself to sleep in the corner every night. He is very patient and takes the time to work, and explain, every problem you present him. If your goal is an A in Organic Chemistry, Alex will get you there.

Alex is such a patient and knowledgeable tutor. I had to take organic chemistry after being out of school for 6 years. Alex was very accommodating, patient, and flexible. Thanks to him I brought my grade up from a C to an A, in my class!

Alex K. was really helpful from the moment I had my first lesson with him. Since then I did not want to go to anyone else at all. He was kind and patient with me, which helped a lot and I highly recommend him to everyone who needs help with chemistry. The guy will explain great and do it so while being patient with you and that helps a lot really. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for help. Thank you Alex so much!

Alex is a very caring and knowledgeable teacher whose mission is to help his students excel in their subjects. He helped me improve my grades in Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry! He is a patient guy and breaks down the complex parts to simpler ones (kind of like catabolism lol) to help you understand a concept or problem. I'd recommend his tutoring to anyone who is struggling with Chemistry (or other Chemistry related classes) to gain more confidence in the subject and become inherently masters of it.

Both of my daughters used Tutor Alex for both General & Organic Chemistry and what an experience! Alex is the best Chemistry Tutor - He is patient, super knowledgeable and uses a wonderful computer program to help students visualize chemical problems. Through his audio and visual methods, daunting General & Organic Chemistry can be passed with flying colors! One of my daughters has a hard time concentrating on Chemistry and Alex was able to help her connect and go from a below average student in Organic Chemistry to possibly an A+ Achiever!!! Her professor started calling on her to help the class and it?s all due to Alex providing an exceptional knowledge platform filled with awesome visual aids via a creative computer program! A huge thank you to Tutor Alex!!! Tutor with him!!! He?s the best!!!

Alex broke everything down for me and I was able to understand the concepts quickly. Also, he used step-by-step processes in order for me to understand clearly.
- Azuri H. from Fort Washington, MD
Alex helped me go through my study guide and practice problems I had trouble with. Alex Very helpful and will help understand what to do for each problem.
- Devon R. from Kensington, MD
Alex teaches to your learning level and goes at whatever pace is needed. He answers many questions and knows lots about the topic. He is flexible with time and sends many helpful items to help you succeed in the topic you may be struggling with.
- Jennifer G. from Odenton, MD
Alex was great and took time to not only show me the reactions but explain why we were doing each step! He was patient when I didn't understand a concept and drew out everything with online tools. I was nervous about the online tutoring but his resources are just as good as being in person!
- Alison B. from Phoenix, AZ
Alex was able to explain topics in a manner that was easy for me to understand as well as show me how to apply that knowledge. He's very patient and willing to explain things more than one way to help you grasp the concepts. Overall, he was very helpful and great at explaining how you approach a problem.
- Kimberly W. from Mechanicsville, MD
All I can say is that...this was a great way to begin orgo chem. Alex made the session interesting and informative. his expertise was evident at the beginning. Cannot wait until the next session.
- Brad M. from Newtown Square, PA
I reached out to Alex during the last few weeks of my Organic Chemistry I class. I was failing the class and not understanding the content. The way he set up his notes really helped me to see the material in a new way. The online platform he uses for drawing shapes and general notes is great, and he is quite proficient in using it. Seeing the work in such a clean presentation is what really sets him apart from everyone else (handwritten notes). I passed the class and plan on using him again in Organic Chemistry II!
- Courtney R. from Fort Collins, CO
Alex did an amazing job on expanding on the fundamental principles of certain reactions. He filled in the holes that were often left out in lecture, making light bulb moments occur. Organic chemistry is hard because there is so many things to consider in a problem, And Alex understands this. He breaks things down in a nonchalant fashion and is extremely knowledgeable on the tiny aspects that govern a particular problem.
- Marcos P. from Bowie, MD
Alex helped me tremendously with understanding mechanisms and synthesis problems. He not only went through the problems, but explained why each step is important and why it happens. He also wrote notes as we went through the assignment and emailed them to me so I can refer back if needed. Definitely the best tutoring experience I've had so far!
- Michele H. from Whippany, NJ
Alex is a really great tutor. He explains things in a way that makes them immediately understandable. He also works out problems step by step, and gives you the work to take home and review and practice. He has a very patient way about him. I would highly recommend him to anyone struggling in chemistry, he will get you back on the path to success.
- Kristin T. from Fort Washington, MD
Very knowledgeable and considerate. Would recommend him a hundred and 10 percent. Will help you improve in one session !
