INTRODUCTION:

Dear science student, I am pleased to inform you that you don't need to struggle anymore because I will empower you to score higher and to master knowledge you thought to be extremely challenging. As a science tutor and prospective physician, I will share with you my unique secrets to an enjoyable and productive intellectual life. Learning a scientific subject is not an easy task (I give you that), but students with so much potential like you can not only pass but also succeed. That's right! I strongly believe that everyone has the ability to turn things around specially when they team up with a knowledgeable and motivating mentor that will give them that extra push and help them transform their potential energy into kinetic energy!


PEDAGOGICAL METHOD:

My teaching style is centered around you, that is, I like to make my sessions dynamic rather than passive by allowing you to explore potential options and think about a problem critically. In doing so, I make you less dependent on me and more dependent on your abilities. I do this by (1) teaching effective study skills and memory tricks based on the latest psychological and neuroscientific findings that have helped me personally, (2) communicating ideas or concepts in a way meant to elicit or probe your knowledge, (3) providing constructive criticism and academic feedback by addressing your weaknesses and strengths and finally (4) by elaborating ways on how to ameliorate your academic deficiencies using individualized practice problems and visual/audio means when applicable.

EXPERIENCE:

As a learning assistant (LA) in college, I tutored various subjects including general biology, genetics, general and organic chemistry, physiology, and microbiology. I also spent an entire summer as an instructor for human biology through the Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL) program at Florida International University (FIU). In addition, for the past two years I've been tutoring friends and colleagues in the general, physical and organic branches of chemistry. Finally, I've been a WyzAnt tutor for about 6 months now and have obtained great results from my teaching methods as reflected in the testimonies section.

I & Lab, BSC 1011 Gen. Bio. II & Lab, PCB 3063 Genetics, PCB 4023 Cell and Molecular Biology.

MCAT

I have used the Examkrackers and Kaplan test preparation materials extensively and I have become strongly familiar with the test and its format. I have also completed over 20 MCAT Full-Lengths which have allowed me to gain an in-depth understanding of the test concepts and its applications. In addition, after tutoring several colleagues for about 6 months, all have obtained competitive overall and sectional scores.

Organic Chemistry

I have a B.A. in Chemistry with a concentration in Biochemistry and a Minor in Biology from Florida International University. My relevant courses were: CHM 1045 Gen. Chem. I & Lab, CHM 1046 Gen. Chem. II & Lab, CHM 2210 Org. Chem. I & Lab, CHM 2211 Org. Chem. II & Lab, CHM 4220 Adv. Org. Chem.,
