Having spent the majority of my life in a classroom, both as an instructor and student, I am well aware of what it takes to be successful. My experiences as a tutor through Wyzant and other institutions have shown me how to successfully work with students in addressing their concerns about their studies ranging from math, general science, and a variety of standardized tests (i.e. PCAT, SAT, etc.). These experiences, as well as my time as a Pharmacy student, have given me the confidence that I will able to translate this academic success to future students interested in improving their skills and grades in any of the areas that I am certified to tutor.
My track record with students has been successful: 100% of my past students have improved their grades after only a few sessions. Working with a variety of students, from the novice to the more advanced, I am able to help explain difficult concepts and convey important test-taking strategies in such a way that students are able to improve their test taking skills, knowledge, and confidence quite rapidly.
Students: If you are interested in improving your skills in math and the sciences, looking to improve your abilities as a standardized test taker, or simply interested in getting a different, unique perspective on a wide variety of different subjects, please do not hesitate to email me and we can discuss the possibility of working together.
After earning both a Bachelor’s in Biochemistry and a Master’s degree in Biology, I can say with confidence that I will be able to work with a variety of different students who are interested in improving their skills and knowledge in the life sciences. Whether its at the microscopic level, in relation to an organism, or entire ecosystems, we will be able to boost both your grade and understanding of any number of different areas of Biology.
My B.S. is in Biochemistry, with chemistry being of general interest and study since high school. Recently, I scored in the 97th percentile for my PCAT chemistry section, which includes both organic and inorganic chemistry.
Presently, I am nearing completion of my Master's work where I study the spatial expression pattern of Anoctamin-1, which is to say where this gene is expressed, in the zebrafish gastrointestinal tract using in situ hybridization. This project deals extensively with advanced topics in molecular biology and genetics. My experience in my previous job allowed me to work with many different transgenic mouse models. My coursework has also extensively prepared me for any kind of coursework relating to genetics.
I took the GRE several years ago so I'm very familiar to the testing format and how one can prepare more efficiently for the exam.
Though I have not taken the MCAT, I have taken the PCAT (91st %tile), which is the pharmacy entrance exam. These two exams cover nearly the same material, save for the MCAT including more physics and less organic chemistry.
I tutor this subject at SUNY Brockport.
I have a Regent's diploma from Irondequoit High School ('02), as well as degrees in Biochemistry (BS) and Biology (MS) from SUNY Geneseo and Brockport, respectively. I am more that qualified for all the subject matter required of this subject, as well as having sufficient knowledge of the Regents exam and how it is structured.
I've been playing, refereeing, and watching soccer since I was very young, which makes me very familiar with the rules, the strategy, and how to train for the sport.
Currently, I tutor many different standardized test subjects, including the PCAT, MCAT, GRE, SAT, ASVAB, and the ACT. I have worked with these students and helped them to efficiently prepare prepare for their admissions tests. As a pharmacy student, I am well familiar with the types of questions, particularly the math and science questions, that will be asked on this exam.
I competed on the Irondequoit and SUNY Geneseo track teams, winning the 2002 sectional title in the 400m Hurdles, as well as winning several team titles during my career at Irondequoit. I love the sport and have plenty of experience training and competing in the hurdling and mid distance events.

Excellent tutor — My daughter has been so impressed with his aptitude and patience. Her confidence has increased and her comfort level with the most difficult problems has also. I'd recommend him without hesitation. He keeps appointments on time, is prepared and very serious about his work. He respects the student and the parent. ...
