Alejandro is currently a medical student at SUNY Downstate. As an undergraduate, he participated in two neuroscience summer research programs at the University of Pennsylvania and Columbia University. At Haverford College, he had met all pre-med requirements, but got his B.A. in Economics. He wrote his thesis on “The Effects of Salary Heterogeneity on Team Performance.” He subsequently earned his Master’s degree in biophysics and physiology with a 3.8 GPA at Stony Brook University. Alejandro has a passion for teaching, particularly science and math. For the past two years, he has also taught ESL to Chinese children. He played varsity lacrosse at Haverford and gave private lessons as a lacrosse instructor for 5 years. He strives to be more than a teacher or coach of skills, aiming to mentor young students in life skills as well. He makes himself available outside the sessions to answer questions or give tips on how to mentally prepare for being a professional or collegiate athlete. A native Bolivian, he grew up speaking both English and Spanish fluently in his home. He enjoys the outdoors, photography and exercise.
He has two slightly different shaped ears. When he runs with Apple earbuds, the right one falls out because his right ear must be a slightly odd shape!
