If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

The students that work with me always improve their grades and scores, and that improvement almost always exceeds expectations.

My technique is based on a combination of the Socratic Method and a more traditional classroom-style approach. Students I work with first learn the fundamentals of what they need to improve in class and on test day, but they also gain a broader knowledge designed to help them pursue any goal they choose.

Initially, I aim to help students improve their scores and/or grades. Ultimately, my goal is to foster an attitude of self-reliance and curiosity, and to impart the tools necessary to find your own answers.

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 majored in Biology in college, and due to my own interest in Genetics, I focused much of my upper level coursework in that field, taking advantage of the University's fantastic genetics dept.

An example of such focus would be the small group discussion/presentation Genetics forums, led, in my case, by the evolutionary aging researcher Dr. Daniel Promislow.

MCAT

I took the MCAT after completing the pre-med program in the honors program at the University of Georgia. I scored a 35 overall and made an "S" on the writing portion.

The breakdown of my score was:

12- Life Science Section (Organic Chemistry and Biology)
12- Physical Science Section (Chemistry and Physics)
11- Verbal
