Hello!

My name is Michael and I'm new to Richmond. I've been working at a major test preparation company for several years and am looking to continue my tutoring through this site. I specialize in teaching the MCAT. I've taken the test twice, my highest and most recent score being a 41 (99.8th percentile). When teaching the MCAT I like to focus on the underlying concepts that are easily missed in college science courses. Most (70%-ish) of the students I have tutored in MCAT subjects have improved their scores and gotten into medical school. I also teach the GMAT and high school and college level math and science. I have received great feedback from previous student's I've tutored, and could provide references if you're skeptical.

I'm flexible, personable, and adaptable, so please contact me and we can work together on bring up your grades and scores!

Cheers!

Michael

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.

Genetics

I have a degree in Microbiology, wherein I studied the genetics of plants, animals, viruses, bacteria, and fungi. I also teach genetics in an MCAT review class, which I've been teaching for 3 years.

Logic

I have a bachelor's degree in mathematics, wherein I took several 300-level courses in logic and reasoning. I also work for a test prep company where I teach the LSAT, which has a huge logic component. I have also taken a Mensa IQ test, which is logic and spatial reasoning, and scored 151.

MCAT

I have taken the MCAT twice, and my last score was a 41. I've been teaching the MCAT through a test prep company for 3 years.

Organic Chemistry

I've been teaching OChem through an MCAT prep course for 3 years. I have tutored organic chemistry for nearly five years and have had great results. I use an electron-centric approach when teaching ochem; I've found when students learn the behavior of electrons, they understand the reaction mechanisms and types much easier
