I am an experienced tutor and I love working with peers and students. As an undergraduate at Yale College, I majored in biology and tutored middle school students in reading, writing, and math for three years. I currently work as a research technician at UCSF and am eager to continue to hone my skills through tutoring. I prefer working with high school and college students, though I also enjoy and have experience working with younger students.

I achieved an excellent score on the MCAT in April 2013 after studying for it independently. Thus I have a coherent, successful strategy for excelling on all sections of the test. Although this exam can be really intimidating, I found that a methodical, rational approach with a combination of content review and familiarization with the style of the test was successful.

I have also extensively studied the humanities and am experienced in helping peers and students structure papers, edit their writing, and develop proofreading and writing skills.

MCAT

I am highly qualified to tutor students for the MCAT because I achieved an excellent score when I took the exam in April 2013 (36 total score: 13 Verbal Reasoning, 11 Physical Sciences, 12 Biological Sciences). I studied for the exam independently, without taking a prep class. Therefore I have a coherent and successful strategy for approaching this intimidating exam that involves a balance between reviewing content and becoming familiar with the unique type of questions on the exam.

Organic Chemistry

I am qualified to tutor in Organic chemistry because I studied it for two semesters at Yale College and earned a B, and an A- in the corresponding lab course. Organic chemistry is essential for understanding biology, and as a biology major I used my skills in organic chemistry regularly, and continue to do so in my research position. I also excelled on the section of the MCAT that deals with organic chemistry and biology, earning a score of 12.
