Hello!

My name is Arthur. I recently completed my second year of medical school and am currently taking a year off to spend time with family.

I have years of experience tutoring high school and graduate students, specializing in basic math/science and study skills, including high school math / SAT math, and MCAT prep. My method of tutoring involves providing a fundamental explanation of how concepts work, and using practice problems to ensure complete understanding of the material. I also emphasize study strategy and am adept at helping students attain as high a grade as possible given their course curriculum.

I have a calm, non-intimidating demeanor, and am patient with all students regardless of their situation. I love teaching and helping students.

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.

MCAT

I am currently a medical student. I took the MCAT once and scored 30M (9V 10P 11B) without any tutoring services or classes.

I can help extensively with studying strategy and preparation advice, which will call on my own experience plus that of many friends of mine that were successful in the medical school application process.

I can also provide thorough advice and information about the application process.

Study Skills

Mentoring/tutoring study skills is my main specialty and interest in tutoring. I have spent nearly my entire life in school up until this point; during this journey I have endlessly searched for more and more efficient ways to master difficult concepts, retain information, and attain a high overall grade in any given course. It takes time to sort though the various learning styles and it is important to tailor the method of learning to the individual student. During my time as a tutor, teaching efficient study habits has been the most rewarding to me and has been the most important resource I have been able to help my student attain. I am comfortable working with students of all ages, however, specialize in student of high school and older, including adults.
