Alexis, originally from Missouri, attended Vanderbilt University where she studied neuroscience with a research focus on adolescents with autism. She is currently a first-year student at Harvard Medical School, with interests in pediatrics and cardiology. Prior to medical school, she worked as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor for two years with a passion for creating inclusive fitness spaces.
Alexis has many years of tutoring experience and a genuine passion for teaching. Her goal is to help her students maximize their strengths and create a successful plan to improve upon their weaknesses. She prides herself in taking creative approaches to difficult topics and creating an environment where conversation can be honest and open. In particular, the MCAT and the topics under the umbrella of it -- including biology, chemistry, psychology, and critical thinking -- are topics Alexis enjoys tutoring at the high school and college levels.
In her free time, Alexis loves going to concerts, getting outdoors, being active, and spending time with friends. You can almost always find her with an americano in her hand and smile on her face.
