Hello. My name is Michael and I am a Science
After years of working as an Organic Chemist and Researcher at the University of Southern California, I recently relocated to Santa Monica to become the Science Content Developer at an education/tech company in the area. I only work out of Santa Monica and like to work out of public places or at my students' homes.
As a tutor in the past, I have worked with students across all topic areas in the Sciences (Chemistry
, etc.) and all age groups (K-12 and College Students). Through years of experience, I have found that my true areas of expertise - the classes where my students achieve their goals - are as follows:
Chemistry: High School, AP, All College-Level (including GEs, Analytical Chemistry and Physical Chemistry)
Physics: High School, AP, Introductory College-LevelBiology
: High School, AP, All College-Level (GEs, Biochemistry
, Molecular Biology, etc.)Organic ChemistryMCAT
Physical and Biological Science Sections
My tutoring style is very calm and understanding. I am very goal-oriented and I expect my students (and their parents) to have clearly-defined goals for our work together. I oftentimes use (and sometimes even custom create) digital tools to help my students learn and practice between our sessions - not only is this a great way to build up their skills and confidence, but it also keeps the students accountable to their goals. I expect a lot out of my students, but that is only because I truly believe they are capable of anything.
If you are looking for a science expert (someone who has taught science, performed scientific research, and completed a BS in Biochemistry with Honors), then I am the tutor you are looking for. I look forward to hearing from you.
