I have experience with most of the Cabrillo College teachers and their methods, test styles, and other advantages I can pass on to students. I've successfully tutored four students through a Chem 1B course. I'm currently attending UCSC and have done well almost every biology and chemistry course given at Cabrillo College. I plan on attending medical school, so I have taken the anatomy and physiology courses offered at Cabrillo for the allied health programs. I've been a teaching assistant in the anatomy lab as well, where I discovered that I love teaching and helping students succeed in their academic goals. I have been a successful tutor through WyzAnt for one year now.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Science

I took the ACT prior to graduating from high school. I scored a 32 on the exam and a perfect on the science reasoning portion of the exam. I have a very thorough science background in the my continuing education through college.

Anatomy

I took the course presented at Cabrillo College. I not only did very well in the course but I was also asked to be a TA for the next three years due to my knowledge of the subject.

Biology

I've taken every biology class that Cabrillo College offers, and have been a teaching assistant for several professors in both anatomy and physiology. I plan to get my bachelor's in Cell and Molecular Biology.

Botany

I've taken the course at Cabrillo College. It had both lecture and lab components as well as field trips to view plants and fungi in the wild. I passed the class taught by Nicole Crane with a high B.

Chemistry

I've taken 2 years of chemistry, both inorganic and organic. My organic chemistry course was taught by an instructor that is well known for his skill in the subject, students attending other universities often choose to come to Cabrillo to take the course. I love chemistry almost as much as I do biology and as my students could tell you I'm very passionate about the topic.

Genetics

I've taken the course on genetics at UCSC. It covered introductory genetics from Mendel, cell division, chromosomal replication and diseases that can result from improper splitting. The course also covered mouse knockouts and model organisms.

MCAT

I've taken the MCAT as a prospective medical student. I scored a 36 on the exam and I have a thorough background in all the sciences that are presented on the test.

Organic Chemistry

I've taken a very thorough, year-long course taught at Cabrillo College. My class was taught not from a memorization perspective but from a mechanistic approach so you understand what is going on and why, and not just the end result. I've also continued my education into the subject with upper level courses at UCSC.

Zoology

I've taken a course that focused the lecture component on physiology, development, and behavior of the differing species of animals from protozoa to large mammals. The lab component focused on the grouping of animals by clades and the identification of features that group them into clades. The lab part also covered the same spread of organisms, from protozoa, to the first chordates, up to large mammals.

Very flexible and patient!!!! — David has been a wonderful tutor!! He has been very easy to get ahold of, and was very flexible with the times he could meet with me.
