Alex has been teaching in one form or another for almost a decade. During his junior year of undergrad, while working on obtaining his bachelor’s in Biochemistry, he needed to take some extra credits to maintain full-time status. Lo and behold, 3 easy credits were available if you could be a teacher’s assistant (or TA for short). Lots of emails and a few interviews later, Alex became a TA for general chemistry I and II, and his start in helping others mastering complex knowledge began.
Since then, Alex has taught many topics and standardized tests. After graduating college, and through recently obtaining his doctorate in Physical Therapy, Alex has worked with Inspirica in test-preparation, academic support, and content creation. From college level biology and chemistry to calculus, from the ACTs/SATs to math and science subject tests, he has worked with students of all ages, from the 7th grade through seniors in college. Alex most notably enjoys taking seemingly complicated material and distilling it down to its simplest form, making it relatable to things his students already know, and then helping them build up their own levels of new and complex knowledge. No learning style is too difficult to work with: Alex truly enjoys making material relatable to each and every student.
His body of work speaks for itself: Alex has helped many students achieve top marks, 99th percentiles, and even perfect scores on standardized tests. However, Alex’s proudest tutoring moment comes from a student that had self-proclaimed herself to be “the world’s worst test taker.” This student was nervous, like many other students facing a daunting exam, and her nerves often got the best of her. Her initial mock exam had scores in the high teens and low twenties across most of her sections. The student, like many others, was able to work on her content mastery, but her anxieties about test day continued to undermine her attempts at a high score. It took many long sessions, texts, and emails to instill confidence, and many meetings with her parents to help her believe in her talents. But finally, that student scored a 33 on her ACT and was admitted to her top choice school.
A native of Brooklyn, NY, Alex has returned to his hometown after finishing his doctorate and now lives mere blocks from where he first went to elementary school. He works as a Physical Therapist during the day and works on his many hobbies by night. He enjoys working out, cooking new foods with the same chemistry principles he teaches, or tinkering with computers and building his own Internet of Things.
