I am a medical student at Columbia University (College of Physicians & Surgeons) -- enrolled in the dual-degree MD/PhD program. I just completed my 2nd year of the program, as well as the US Medical Licensing Exam Step 1.

I have extensive experience as a high school and college tutor. My subjects of expertise are chemistry and biology, and specifically MCAT preparation. I enjoy working with students, motivating them, and inspiring in them a passion for science. I have gone through the challenging academic path of science classes in high school, pre-medical coursework as an undergraduate, MCAT preparation, and medical school applications. Besides teaching, I have lots of great advice to give!

I am qualified to tutor high school, undergraduate, and post-bac students.

I am available on most evenings and weekends.

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.

Biochemistry

I have expertise in biochemistry at the high school, undergraduate, and graduate levels.

Biology

Expertise at the high school and undergraduate levels. I can also teach human physiology and pathophysiology at more advanced levels.

Chemistry

I have expertise in inorganic and organic chemistry in both the high school and undergraduate levels. I look forward to working with you or your student.

MCAT

I took the MCAT in January 2009 and scored very well on the exam. Since then, I have taken advanced biochemistry classes, and I have completed the medical school pre-clinical curriculum as an MD/PhD student at Columbia University. For the past 3 years, I have provided MCAT tutoring to a number of students. Besides my expertise in the subjects tested in the MCAT, I can also provide mentorship on planning a studying schedule, effective strategies for studying, and advice on applying to medical school.
