I am a recent college graduate currently working in biomedical research. I have experience tutoring in many subjects, but my specialty is test prep for college and medical school. I took the MCAT in March of 2013, scoring in the 95th percentile, and I took both the SAT and ACT with scores at or above the 95th percentile. I can help with subject mastery and test taking tips and strategies. I have particular strengths in verbal reasoning and writing (13 on MCAT Verbal Reasoning, 780 writing on SAT, and 36 writing on ACT). Please note that due to the technical nature of MCAT tutoring I charge $75 per hour for MCAT prep.
My tutoring style involves coaching the student into reaching the answers on their own. For example, If they struggle to find the correct equation, I teach them how to locate resources and how to look at the variables present to select the best way to solve a problem. After working through a problem together, I will give each student a similar problem for them to solve on their own (helping as needed) until they can solve it on their own and understand how to solve similar problems in the future.
For test prep in particular, I focus on identifying and eliminating content gaps as well as skills to eliminate wrong answers and how to figure out what the question is really asking, which is often 90% of the battle on comprehension based testing.
I can also tutor in additional subjects ranging from elementary school through college level, with a focus in biology and chemistry.
I am a college graduate who will apply to medical school in the coming year. I took over 20 MCAT practice tests, averaging a score of 35 with a high score of 37. I averaged an 11 in physical sciences, 13 in verbal reasoning, and a 12 in biological sciences. On the actual exam, taken in May 2012, I received a 35, 10 in physical sciences, 13 in verbal reasoning, and 12 in biological sciences.
I have been a competitive swimmer since the age of six. I was the captain of my high school swim team and a varsity team member in college. I have taught multiple people how to swim and I personally tutored more than 20 people in stroke, turn, and start technique for all four strokes.
