« (Alexa is my friend and roommate). I’ve struggled through Gen Chem (CH 23X) this year and Alexa has really helped me pass each term. I don’t really learn too easily and usually find it’s hard for me to learn when people help me. But Alexa has had a really effective way of explaining things to me so that I actually understand them and will retain the information. It also helps that she genuinely cares about not only the subjects she helps with but the success of others, too. I’ve had a couple of paid tutors before, both of them grad students, and Alexa is still a much better tutor than them. Overall, 10/10 would recommend. »

Biochemistry student in Corvallis, OR offering chemistry and arithmetic lessons up to University level

Methodology

Chemistry can be hard, I will be the first one to admit that. I believe that success in chemistry is largely dependent on how it is approached and explained. I like making lessons fun and unique (ever done Lewis Structures with skittles and bottle caps?), focusing on conceptual understanding over just plug and chug practice problems. Chemistry can be approached in many different ways, and I think the key to being a good tutor is finding the way that works best for each individual student and being flexible in lesson plans.

Background

I am Biochemistry and Molecular Biology student minoring in chemistry at Oregon State University. I have tutored and led study groups/tables for AP, IB, honors, and university General Chemistry. Students who work with me don't just achieve high grades, but walk away with a solid understanding and respect for the subject.

Alexa tutored me all throughout general chemistry my first year at Oregon State University. She is a wonderful teacher and helped me through complex problems in multiple ways until she found one that made sense to me. Her knowledge in chemistry mixed with her kindness and patience made her a fun person to be around and a very helpful tutor throughout the year!
