About this tutor

I am a student so I understand that there are multiple different strategies to understanding a concept. I believe every student is unique and that each learning style is different. Understanding comes through application of concepts, and I believe that students need to not only finish their assignments, but apply their knowledge to different types of questions on assessments. The schedule of each student is different and classes can have short deadlines that need to be met. I know time management is key to academic success, and being able to get help when needed is important. I have tutored students for their classes so they are not only understanding the big picture, but what goes into the making of that big picture. 

I am a huge believer in tutors. Schools have generated students who repeat back information without understanding why a process happens. Tutors help students understand the WHY things happen and go past repeating back a formula for an answer. I love seeing the light bulb flash when students are excited to apply concepts to multiple problems.

  • Katherine Cheng

    Alexis is a very great tutor! I hired her two times for chemistry because she explains the subject very well and is very clear. Tutors sometimes might not understand the subject that much but Alexis has always been very knowledgable about exactly what I need help on. She always makes sure to go at my own pace and never rushes me which helps a lot. She always makes sure that I understand the material before she moves on and if I do not, she is always willing to go through the material again. All in all, she's amazing to have as a tutor!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

When I start working with a new student I like to first understand their learning style so I can help them in the way that will benefit them most. I ask them what their goals are and how comfortable they feel with the material. From the start I want students to learn how to study properly. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am currently a student and have been tutoring other students for about 5 years. I feel that being a student helps me understand the position of the student I am helping. I also work on clinical research which helps with connecting a concept to the bigger picture. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

The pricing on my lessons vary with the range of topics I tutor. Before lessons I prepare material so each student can leave with the the concepts we went over and the PDF with the material during the lesson. 


How did you get started teaching?

I have always enjoyed teaching others. I believe in learning the way that best suits the student as I have not always been keen on the teaching style of some classes I have taken. I would start by explaing concepts to others outside of class during free time and then expanded to tutoring on campus. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students in elementary school all the way to college. Having a student learn the best way for them is great to start young, and working with younger children is extremely rewarding as they can carry it on with them later into their academic career. As the difficulty of subjects gets higher, tutors are extremely helpful such as students in college. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently tutored a high school student who is taking a class I took when I was in high school. She was having a hard time with concepts in the class that were difficult when I was taking the class as well. I was able to explain the concept to her so she felt confident completing her assignment. She had a test coming up the next Monday so when I received a text later that week that she got an A, I was estatic. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

When looking for a tutor in STEM it is important to find someone who was in a reputable program of the subject you are seeking help with. Ask them what they specialize in and if it matches with what you need. Explain what you need help with so you can make sure they are prepared to explain each concept. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Students should think about what they know best and what they do not understand. From there the gaps of knowledge can be filled so they become more confident with the material.
