I have experience tutoring and mentoring students from middle school to college. I have tutored for Varsity Tutors and Rice Tutors and have even run my own private piano studio. In total, I have 10 years of experience.

My credentials: I graduated from Rice University with a B.S. in bioengineering and received my MD in June 2013 from UT Southwestern. My MCAT is 36Q (11 verbal, 12 bioscience, 13 physical science). My SAT scores are: 760 math, 740 verbal, and 790 writing. I've been through all AP classes, and graduated top of my high school class, and went into college with 54 hours of credit. I am currently an intern resident at Baylor College of Medicine and is expecting my full medical license in June 2014.

I am a friendly, outgoing, confident person who is ready to do anything it takes to get you to your educational goals, because I'm willing to do anything to reach mine. I can help you with your homework, help you study (or even cram) for your exam tomorrow. I've even worked online with students till 12 am the night before their exams. I can also give you supplemental problems that are perhaps a bit more challenging than typical homework problems.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Biostatistics

I have B.S. in bioengineering from Rice University, where an intermediate-level course in biostatistics was required for the degree. In addition, I've several research positions that required use of data analysis in publishing results. Basic biostatistics is also necessary to pass the USMLE steps 1 and 2, which I passed.

Chinese

Mandarin Chinese was my first language. I am very fluent and I speak with a Beijing accent.

College Counseling

I have ample experience working with high school students applying to Ivy-league universities and college students applying to medical school. I have edited and even helped written some college essays. I am also an editor for an editing company (American Journal Experts) which recruit students from top-notch American universities to edit foreign papers. I just received my MD from UTSW and have a B.S. in engineering from Rice University.

Differential Equations

I took differential equations at Rice University under the direction of Dr. Gao and made an A in it. I was a bioengineering major that graduated in 2009.

Genetics

I have a broad knowledge base of theoretical, molecular, and clinical genetics. I am familiar with such concepts as cloning, protein expression, can solve genetics problems involving probability of a trait, and can describe symptoms of common and rare genetic syndromes.

MCAT

I'm a 4th year medical student at UTSW. I made a 36Q on the MCAT. I was also an officer of the premed society when I was in college at Rice University. I have spoken with representatives from Kaplan and Princeton Review, so in addition to training you for the MCAT I can also give you tips to buff up your application. I hope you choose me as your MCAT tutor.

Organic Chemistry

I have tutored organic chemistry for MCAT prep recently. I am able to teach basic reactions such as substitutions, eliminations, HNMR, and Grinard. I have also studied basic biochemistry in college and medical school and have taught biochemistry for MCAT and USMLE step 1 prep.

Pharmacology

I'm a medical student at UTSW about to graduate. I have studied this subject in school. I passed both the step 1 and step 2 on the USMLE and scored within the top 25% of the nation.

Piano

I am a classically trained pianist, having taken lessons for 10 years. In high school I had a private piano studio where I taught beginning students aged 5-15. Although I don't profess to be a piano instructor, I can help with everyday practice, as I understand rhythm, basic technique, performance skills, and music theory. I have personally won several local amateur piano competitions in Houston.
