I am a recent graduate with a B.S. in biological sciences from the University of California at Santa Barbara. I scored in the 99 percentile on the MCAT, with a perfect 15/15 in the biological sciences sections and a 14/15 in the physical science section. I aim to minimize the memorization of facts, and instead focus on the mechanistic understanding of information. Accordingly, I focus less on what a system is doing and more on why a system is doing it. This style of logical thinking creates a more fun learning environment while giving my students more flexibility in applying their knowledge, translating into significantly higher test scores.

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.

Genetics

I have completed two upper division courses at the college level in prokaryotic and eukaryotic genetics, as well as having tutored the subject for the MCAT. I believe that I am well qualified to tutor this subject due to my extensive experience in the area.

MCAT

I have been tutoring online for the MCAT for the past month in physical sciences and biological sciences and am a great tutor. I scored a perfect 15/15 when I took the MCAT last August, as well as scoring a 14/15, 98-99 percentile, on the physical sciences section. This places me in the top 1% of all examinees.
