Hello!

I am extremely passionate about teaching, using up-to-date techniques to help with better retention and test taking skills. I specialize in finding the level the student is currently at and helping the student to easily progress from there to test day and beyond.

I received my Medical Degree (MD) in 2007.

In medical school, I was a teacher's aide (TA) in Anatomy and tutored many subjects, including Anatomy, Physiology, Microbiology, Psychology, Genetics, Nutrition, Neurology and pre-med classes.

I have been actively teaching pre-med, undergraduates, medical students and physicians a wide variety of subjects including test taking techniques.

I have a full resume upon request.

I love teaching and I am looking forward to helping you maximize your knowledge and reaching your goals!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Anatomy

I am extremely passionate about anatomy and physiology and love teaching it in a way that helps students understand and do well on their exams and beyond. I took anatomy and physiology in undergraduate school and again in pre-med. In medical school, I took 60 credit hours in anatomy and was a Teacher's Aide (TA) for 2 years. I currently tutor undergraduates, pre-med, medical students and physicians.

Biology

Biology is an exciting field and often a pre-requisite to advanced science classes. Therefore it is important to have a good overall understanding of the subject. I am passionate about helping students of all levels understand the significance of biology. I have years of experience tutoring the biological sciences from undergraduate to medical school and look forward to helping you!

Genetics

I have taken genetics in undergraduate and again in medical school where I also tutored fellow students.

Microbiology

I took microbiology as an undergraduate, pre-med and in medical school and have tutored all levels of microbiology including high school, undergraduate, pre-med and medical students. I enjoy showing students the overall importance of microbiology and helping students improve their tests scores.

Nutrition

I have taken over 20 hours of nutrition in medical school and incorporate nutrition into patient care.

Pharmacology

I have taken over 40 hours of pharmacology in medical school and incorporate pharmacology into patient care since graduating from medical school in 2007. I currently teach pharmacology to undergraduates, medical students and physicians.

Physiology

Physiology/Pathophysiology is one of the most exciting subjects to tutor. I took physiology in undergraduate school, pre-med and in medical school. I have tutored undergraduates, pre-med, medical students and physicians. I specialize in finding the level the student is currently at and help the student understand the whole picture and it's overall significance.

Psychology

As a part of my undergraduate study in pre-med, I was required to take several psychology courses, including Introduction to Psychology and Abnormal Psychology. I continued on to medical school where I took Psychiatry and Neurology and did rotations in both fields, as well as tutored undergraduates and fellow medical students. I have a very broad background in the field of psychology.

Study Skills

I have over ten years of experience helping students optimize their individual learning styles to reach their academic goals and improve their test taking abilities. Learning is a life long process that if good study skills are identified and mastered early on, can benefit every student for the rest of their academic career and beyond. Up-to-date techniques include identifying individual learning styles, strengths and weakness, and mind mapping. I look forward to helping you!

Allegra’s Resources

Tutors have the ability to create educational resources and share them with the WyzAnt community. Here are some of the resources created by Allegra. View all of Allegra’s resources

Students often ask, "How is your tutoring different and how can you guarantee I'll benefit by being tutored by you?"   My philosophy of tutoring involves making sure by the end of the session, the student not only understands the material, but also is able to explain the material back.    This is accomplished by incorporating mind maps into the tutoring... read more
