Greetings!

Thank you for looking at my page. I've recently graduated from Santa Clara University with a Biochemistry degree. While I was obtaining it, I spent many hours helping my fellow students understand the material we learned in class. I would also love explaining the science I had learned to my friends. (Teaching them about subjects like organic chemistry or physiology to name a few.)

However, it takes more than just knowledge to be a good tutor. As an teacher, I am friendly, patient and encouraging to those learning about a subject. I take care to ensure understanding through quizzes, and by
conversing with the student about the subject. I also am talented at breaking down difficult material and explaining it in a way easy to understand, tailored to the level the student is at. As I've always said,

"If you can't explain it to an intelligent 12 year old, then you don't really understand it"

I explain to my students because I understand the material and how to help them understand it.

Thank you again for your consideration, and I hope to hear from you soon.

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.

MCAT

I frequently tutor subjects that show up on the MCAT, such as organic chemistry, physics, general chemistry and biology. I've taken the MCAT and also the DAT (Dental Admissions Test) which I've scored quite high on.

Organic Chemistry

I majored in Biochemistry and took a full sequence of Organic Chemistry and also took a BioOrganic Chemistry course as well.
