My name is Oscar T. Here is a little background about myself. I am currently a second year medical student at TAMHSC (Texas A&M Health Science Center). I am currently working at Baylor Medical Center in Dallas working on a cancer research Monday-Friday from 8-5. I graduated from Austin College in Sherman Texas, for those of you who have not heard of it, it is known for its pre-medical program. I graduated with a dual major in Biochemistry and Business Administration. I have one publication on the effects of p28y knockout on murine gut microflora. I also have a proposal on the increase of medical defensive practices relative to profit maximization. I was nominated pre-medical student of the year at Austin College as well as nominated for Alphi Chi Honors Fraternity, and Phi Beta Kappa Honors Fraternity.
I have been tutoring for about 4.5 years now. I usually tutor high school students looking to increase their SAT scores. Occasionally I do some college material depending on how comfortable I feel with the material. I have helped my students achieve their goals and gain acceptance into their first choice colleges. My students have gone to Emory, UT, Texas State, and UNT. Keep in mind these were their first choice schools.
My teaching method is a little different than most teachers. I work with how students learn best. I adapt to their style instead of trying to change it. Learning is about using techniques and skills that maximize your capability to register or digest information. Part of learning is also about seeing multiple perspectives. The truth is that here is always more than one way to derive an answer, however, we want to find the most efficient path. We also want to understand the variables in the path. If we understand the variables of the pathway then we can start being creative and innovative. That's the nature and the beauty of knowledge. Stephen Hawking is able to make scientific predictions because he understands the fundamental value of all scientific experiments that led to the understanding of matter. In the same way if we understand variables and the behavior of nature, we can start theorizing and making logical predictions. Its the fundamental basis of innovation.
