Hello! I'm a recent University of Washington, Seattle Biochemistry graduate who is going to medical school next fall 2014. I have over 8 years of tutoring experience. I worked at Kumon math and reading center as a lead student tutor for 4 years teaching kids K-12 in math and reading. In college I peer tutored general/organic chemistry and general biology and genetics. I a strong understanding and received grades 3.5 and above in my advanced biochemistry and physical chemistry courses.
I'm also extremely friendly, personable, and love to work with people of all ages. I love a challenge and enjoy problem solving to help teach people in a way that is most conducive to their learning style. Truly, I enjoy seeing people learn and achieve their academic goals.
I have taken courses in genomics and evolutionary genetics at the University of Washington, Seattle. I received a 3.7 grade in these courses or higher. I also have experience peer tutoring in these subjects.
I have taken 5 quarters worth of organic chemistry at the University of Washington, Seattle. Three of these courses were a series of theory courses and two were lab practical courses. The material that was covered in these courses includes structure, nomenclature, reactions, and synthesis of the main types of organic compounds; discussion of physical properties and transformations of organic molecules (specially aromatic and carbonyl compounds. Lastly I have learned about polyfunctional compounds and natural products, lipids, carbohydrates, amino acids, proteins, and nucleic acids. This includes introduction to membranes, enzyme mechanisms, prosthetic groups, and macromolecular conformations. The previous sentence describes where my strong interests lie in terms of organic chemistry.
