I am here to help you succeed, and look to pay forward the help, knowledge, and skills I received along the way. I have over twenty years of experience teaching and tutoring at the elementary, middle school, high school, and university levels. Whether it is the basic mechanics of studying or understanding a specific area of study, I will share with you techniques and approaches that have helped me. I have a positive, reinforcing, and encouraging teaching style with endless patience. I also enjoy proofreading and helping structure your writing and essay work. I've taught for many years at Kaplan Learning Centers SAT, GRE, and MCAT courses, and also have experience working with ESL students, both children and adults. I'm a graduate of the University of Washington with Bachelor of Science degrees in Chemistry, Microbiology, and Immunology and a doctorate degree from the School of Medicine. I encourage you to contact me so I can begin to help!

MCAT

I scored 12s and 13s on the MCAT when I took it (scoring in the the top percentile in the US). I attended medical school. I was a lead instructor at a local branch of nationally recognized tutoring center for 4 years, teaching the MCAT preparation course.

Public Speaking

I have three Bachelor of Science degrees and a Masters and a Doctorate. In the course study and in my present work it is required that I present lectures and lead discussions at national and international meetings. I have also achieved monetary awards for best presentation on more than one occasion. When I worked at Kaplan, I also received advanced training on how to best convey ideas and structure lessons.

I have three Bachelor of Science degrees, a Masters, and a Doctoral degree in medicine. I know how to study and what works for specific areas of study. I have instructed at both the high school and university level, and enjoy teaching. I have also served as a lead instructor for Kaplan.
