I have been tutoring students since I was in 10th grade through school tutoring programs, and I have continued to do so throughout college. I am currently in medical (MD) school at The Commonwealth Medical College. I live in Williamsport, and am available to meet students in the greater Williamsport Area. Most of my experience tutoring is in test prep for the MCAT and coursework in BioChemistry, Physics, Biology, and Chem/O Chem at all levels.

More importantly, I love to learn alongside the person that I tutor, and I am abundantly patient and kind (trust me I know what it is like to not grasp a difficult concept). As such, I can bring the education to the level of the learner and use language that allows others to fully understand concepts beyond what it takes to get the "A" on a test.

I am comfortable working with people of all ages, and enjoy the variety. I am very patient with children and adults alike. Additionally, I hold myself to a high ethical standard and do not take advantage of people in any way. I may be contacted for free advice about tutoring and course material.

David’s subjects

Algebra 1

As a student with math experience up to calculus II, I am confident in my ability to tutor through the concepts and equations of Algebra. I have tutored this subject more than any other, largely helping remedial students or students hoping to ace standardized tests such as the SAT.

Algebra 2

As a student with math experience up to calculus II, I am confident in my ability to tutor through the concepts and equations of Algebra. I have tutored this subject more than any other, largely helping remedial students or students hoping to ace standardized tests such as the SAT.

Biochemistry

As a molecular biologist turned medical student, I am quite familiar with a broad range of biochemistry topics, and have tutored in biochem test prep, homework solving, and paper writing. I have a background in biochemistry research and lab sciences. Furthermore, medical school has served to enhance my biochemical aptitude.

Biology

I am most qualified to teach biology because I have a bachelor's in molecular biology. My emphasis is on cell and animal biology, though I have intensely studied ecology, plant life, genetics, and microbiology throughout my education. As a medical doctor student, I like to relate biological concepts to medicine. I am very passionate about this subject, and I am absolutely confident in my abilities to tutor this effectively.

Chemistry

I have a very strong chemistry background due to my collegiate experience, lab experience, and MCAT experience. I have a strong grasp on every major topic in chemistry, and my time in inorganic, organic, and biochemistry inform my capacity to aid students in understanding general chemistry. Please feel free to inquire about my strengths in any subset of chemistry.

Geometry

As a student who has excelled in math from Geometry and Trigonometry to Calculus II, I enjoy tutoring all levels of math. Geometry is particularly fun to learn. Please feel free to inquire about any subset of this course topic.

MCAT

I have taken and tutored for the MCAT multiple times over the last 2 years as I prepared myself and others to attend medical school. I do not prefer to announce my MCAT score, though I can say that I scored over a 30 and have a strong grasp on about 95% of the subject matter relevant to the test. I am confident to tutor for this subject and I have some very helpful free material.

Microbiology

I have completed Micro in college and received an A for my work (tough course so this is notable). I am very familiar with laboratory techniques, and I have studied bacteria throughout many other courses of inquiry, including a course in zoonotic disease and epidemiology. This course is effectively my major (molecular biology).

Organic Chemistry

I have taken Organic Chemistry in college and received an A- both semesters. Additionally, I have taken the MCAT and done well on the organic chemistry/biology section.

Physical Science

As a medical student with a broad experience in physical sciences, I am very comfortable tutoring in this topic. I have had 3 years of Chemistry courses and 2 years of Physics in addition to excelling in the Physical Sciences portion of the MCAT.

Physics

In the field of Physics, I have a strong background in Kinetic Physics/Mechanics, as well as a healthy dose of Electricity and Magnetism. I scored a 5 on the AP test and I also scored highly on the MCAT in the physical sciences. I have 3 semesters of Mechanics under my belt and a lot of laboratory experience to go with it. I actually struggled a lot with Physics when I first started, so I know what it is like to work through the concepts.

Great teaching skills. I've been meeting with David for MCAT tutoring. He is fantastic at explaining and connecting key concepts. He is also very patient and willing to work on problems for as long as they take. I've taken the Princeton review course and I can 100% say his strategies are much better. He teaches students how to effectively read the passages and what to focus on. I've seen a huge improvement after only 3 ...
