I'm a recent MIT graduate with dual degrees in Biology and Chemistry, and currently I'm researching at MIT on cancer.
Teaching has been a long-time passion of mine and I hope to continue teaching throughout my life time. I have tutored SAT Math, SAT II and various science subjects since 2006. During my time at MIT I was a teaching assistant for four semesters in Biology, Genetics, Biochemistry and Cell Biology classes, and I continuously served as a tutor in the department. In addition, I taught AP Biology for four years at MIT to disadvantaged high school students. In the last year, I have started tutoring MCAT Physical and Biological section topics.
My style of teaching involves giving a short lecture about the fundamentals of the topic, then gradually covering advanced topics. I continuously question my students in order to help them reach the answers themselves and to make sure that they are keeping up with the material. I will provide all the material for test preparations such as SAT, SAT II, AP and MCAT, however, if you have your own curriculum and material I'd be happy to work with that as well.
The following are my test scores:
SAT I Math 800, SAT II Math II 800, SAT II Biology 800, SAT II
Chemistry 800, SAT II Physics 750.
AP Physics C Mechanics: 5, AP Physics C Electricity and Magnetism: 5, AP
Calculus BC: 5, AP Computer Science AB: 5, AP Biology: 5, AP Chemistry: 5.
MCAT Biological: 15
MCAT Physical: 14
In addition, I'm a fluent Persian (Farsi) speaker and I have been tutoring it for 3 years.
I am a native speaker of Farsi with three years of teaching experience.
I received my bachelors in biology. In college I was a teaching assistant for Biology and Biochemistry classes, all part of the core contents of the MCAT. I have been tutoring MCAT science topics for two years, working with students on study plans, specific subject tutoring, and test taking skills.
