As a first year medical student in the MD program at SUNY Stony Brook School of Medicine, I completed gross anatomy with a grade of honors. I earned a 680 on the NBME (National Board of Medical Examiners) subject examination for gross anatomy, which translated to 97th percentile.
I can help you learn the location and names of nerves, bones, organs, and more. I can also teach you the names, locations, and functions of muscles.
I have tutored multiple students preparing for the ASVAB test with positive results. I would love to help you get your target score and achieve your goals!! I tutor 9/10 sections of the test with great expertise. The shop section is the only one that I do not regularly tutor. All other sections (including the problems that involve circuits) are a breeze for me. Contact me to get started today!! :-)
I majored in Biology in college and also attended medical school, so this is my favorite topic. I have taken and gotten A's in many upper level biology courses, including genetics, molecular biology, developmental biology, immunology, histology, anatomy. and more. I remember everything that I have learned and will pass it down to you, also, I am fantastic at explaining concepts in a way that makes them stick.
I spent a year in college as a teaching assistant for introductory biology (Biology 1 and 2). While I was responsible for 250 students, I tutored many of them on one-on-one basis during my office hours. I always got very positive feedback from the students that I worked with.
I have also done some recent biology tutoring, on my own, as well as through this website. I tutored regular biology, AP biology, and microbiology.
I always go into a tutoring session assuming that the student knows nothing about the topic, and work my way up from there. No level of biology is too basic for tutoring, but if you contact me, be ready to work hard and score high!
I have taken a number of chemistry classes, including AP Chemistry (Grade of 5), Organic Chemistry I, II, and lab (Grades of A in all three), Biochemistry (Grade of B+), and medical biochemistry. I have tutored general chemistry, organic chemistry, and biochemistry, all with very positive results.
These are some of the concepts that I can help you with: moles/grams conversions; limiting reagent; nomenclature; stochiometry and balancing equations; periodic table trends such as electronegativity, electron affinity, ionization energy, and atomic radius; drawing Lewis dot diagrams, formal charge, electron geometry and molecular geometry, acid/base chemistry, equilibrium constants, redox reactions, colligative properties, phase changes, enthalpy, exothermic and endothermic reactions and diagrams, nuclear chemistry such as alpha and beta particles, and more.
At Florida State University, I completed a 3000 level genetics class and a 4000 level molecular biology class with grades of B and A, respectively. I also completed the first year MGC (molecules, genes, and cells) class at SUNY Stony Brook School of Medicine. I received an HP (high pass).
Some of the concepts that I can help you master include Mendelian genetics and punnet squares; linked traits, sex-linked traits and sex-linked diseases such as color blindness and hemophilia; DNA structure, function, and replication; the structure and function of different types of RNA; the steps involved in transcription; protein structure and the process of creating proteins via translation; chromosome structure; cell division processes, including mitosis and meiosis; mitochondrial DNA, genes, and diseases; laboratory mechanisms of studying genetics, including gel elecrophoresis, polymerase chain reaction aka PCR, southern/western/northern blotting, microarrays, etc; the inheritance of genetic diseases and their symptoms, treatment, and prognosis; and more!
I have a lot of experience tutoring various math classes, and geometry is no exception. I can help you with calculations, graphing, and word problems pertaining to the following geometry concepts: (1) Lines (slope, intercepts, systems of equations, etc); (2) Angles (complementary, supplementary, etc); (3) Triangles (equilateral, isosceles, right, acute, obtuse); (4) Circles (diameter, circumference, sectors, arcs, etc); (5) Quadrilaterals (squares, rectangle, rhombi, parallelograms, and trapezoids); (6) Three-dimensional shapes (cones, cylinders, spheres, pyramids, and prisms).
During my undergraduate years at Florida State University, I took a 4000 level microbiology class called Prokaryotic Biology and received an A. I also received an A grade in the 4000 level Virology class. During my time at SUNY Stony Brook School of Medicine, I completed the medical microbiology course included in the second year curriculum.
As an undergraduate student at Florida State University, I took Honors Science of Nutrition and received an A. I also completed Intermediate Metabolism I and received an A in this class as well.
As a medical student at SUNY Stony Brook School of Medicine, I completed Nutrition coursework as part of the Organ Systems classes that are taken in the second year of medical school. We were required to learn information pertaining to nutrition as it relates to each body system (pulmonary, cardiology, neurology, etc) when we studied that particular organ system. I also completed general nutrition work as requires in the first year medical school curriculum.
At Florida State University, I completed Organic Chemistry I, Organic Chemistry II, and Organic Chemistry Laboratory. I was the only freshman student in these classes which are normally completed by sophomores and juniors. I received an A grade in all three classes. I had the second highest grade in a class of about 150 or 200 Organic Chemistry II students. My professor was Dr. Martin A Schwartz who is well known for his research on angio-genesis inhibitors and his involvement in the first total organic synthesis of the tumor suppressor drug Taxol (Paclitaxol).
I have taken pharmacology in medical school. The class was a full year long course and I high passed the course and got a 93 percentile on the NBME subject examination. I also spent a year working in a pharmacy.
At Florida State University, I took a physiology class (vertebrate physiology) and received an A. I also passed the first year physiology class at SUNY Stony Brook School of Medicine with a high pass. I completed and passed the second year Organ Systems classes, including neuroscience, pulmonary, hematology, cardiology, connective tissue, reproductive, endocrine, etc with grades of pass and high pass.
I graduated from West Irondequoit High School with a Regents diploma. If there were different levels of Regents diplomas, like there are today, I would have qualified for the highest one.
I have prepared countless students for Regents exams, especially for the following subjects: (1) Regents Algebra 2 & Trigonometry, (2) Regents Geometry, (3) Regents Chemistry, (4) Regents Biology, and (5) Regents Algebra.
My track record is phenomenal. In the past 3 years, ALL of my students have passed their Regents exams. Some were first attempts, but many came to me for help after failing the Regents exam once or twice. I can provide many examples and references.
If you choose me as your Regents tutor, you WILL meet your goal whether it is to pass the exam or to excel on it. As long as you seek my help on time and have a decent work ethic, you WILL succeed.
I love tutoring for SAT math! When I took the exam in high school, I took it cold because I didn't know any better at the time. I got a 670. Now, I would score around an 800. I also score in the 740-800 range on the practice GRE quantitative reasoning sections. These sections are based off of the same level of math as the SAT, with the distinction being more diverse questions types and more challenging ways of presenting the problem.
As your SAT math tutor, I will work with you on improving the 4 main topics in the math subject. These include:
(1) numbers and operations
(2) algebra and functions
(3) geometry and measurements
(4) data, statistics, and probability
At the same time, we'd work on connecting the concepts to each other and solving tricky word problems.
I have had students increase 100+ points in this sections after 2 weeks of tutoring.
I am great at teaching trigonometry and have experience in tutoring this subject. Some of the topics I will help you learn are basic trigonometry functions, degrees and radians, right triangles, parallelograms, circles, arc length, law of sines/cosines, double and half angle formulas, angle product/sum/difference formulas, trigonometric identities, graphing trigonometric functions, and more.
I am also familiar with the Regents algebra 2 & trigonometry exam. These two subjects are tested together on the same exam. I can help you prepare for your regents test.
