I try to build on what students already know to help them move to the next level, usually by way of example problems. When students have assigned work that they need help with, I first help them master the basic concepts by working through the chapter and then showing them how to complete problems which haven't been assigned. The goal is repetition of skills because after all, practice makes perfect!

My goal isn't to do homework for the students I tutor. I know that while it may help the student pass his or her courses, they won't derive any benefit and will continue to struggle with exams. By stressing the fundamentals, students are better able to grasp more complicated problems on their own.

I tutored organic chemistry, SAT and MCAT courses among others throughout college and medical school. My strategy has helped numerous students achieve higher standardized exam scores, get through homework sets, and raise test grades. There really is no greater sight than a student who finally grasps a concept that he or she has been struggling with. That's what I tutor for!

Genetics

Medical training at the George Washington University includes education in genetics and genetic abnormalities. The subject matter is tested heavily in our boards and we see a wide variety of genetic abnormalities during our pediatrics rotations.

Linear Algebra

I took linear algebra courses in high school and university. I tutored the subject previously at GWU, mainly helping students with their coursework and complicated problems to help them understand the more fundamental techniques.

MCAT

I am a graduate of the George Washington University School of Medicine. I took the MCAT while an undergraduate and scored a 36 on the exam. While in medical school, I tutored other undergraduates for the MCAT as well.

Organic Chemistry

I took Honors Organic Chemistry at GWU, where I received an A. I tutored organic chemistry throughout university and medical school, helping students to understand fundamental reaction mechanisms so that they could work through more difficult problems. I use simple reaction diagrams to apply those concepts to more complicated reactions.

Study Skills

I have been tutoring multiple subjects, mainly math and the sciences, for almost ten years now. I try to take an adaptive approach to my students to determine what their strengths and weaknesses are and cater my lessons towards them in a way that would benefit them most. I have experience with a multitude of learners of different ages!
