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.

Anatomy

I successfully completed graduate level Anatomy & Physiology and now have 3+ years of experience successfully tutoring A&P to students from San Diego universities and several community colleges. I help with primary structure identification on human and laminate models, secondary question review, and histology.

Biochemistry

I've successfully completed undergraduate biochem and biochem lab as well as medical biochemistry.

Biology

I graduated from Cal State Los Angeles with a Bachelor of Science in Biology with Honors. I continued Post-Baccalaureate Biology coursework at UCI Irvine while pursuing Pharmacology research there, and at UCLA School of Medicine where I also pursued clinical coursework. For 4+ years I've successfully tutored the General Bio series and several upper division courses including Anatomy and Physiology. I also enjoy tutoring general through advanced placement high school Biology, and preparing students for the AP Biology exam.

Chemistry

I successfully completed the Chemistry, Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry series at Cal State LA, as well as post-graduate coursework in these subjects at UC Irvine and UCLA.

I have 4+ years of experience successfully tutoring the Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Biochemistry series to students from major san diego universities. In addition, I have 4+ years of experience tutoring High School general, honors, and AP level chemistry.

As a tutor, I take an active part in development of curriculum for students preparing for course, advance placement, and graduate school exams.

Pharmacology

Hello, I'm a medical student at UCLA on break for the summer and I'd like to add pharmacology to my tutoring subjects. I have had pharmacology integrated with my medical school courses so I have a good understanding of drug mechanisms, actions, applications, contraindications, etc. I can tutor the subject for anyone taking a college course in pharm or for graduate students.

Physiology

I successfully completed undergraduate physiology at Cal State LA, as well as graduate level physiology at UC Irvine and UCLA.

I have 4+ years of experience successfully tutoring physiology to undergraduate and graduate students from the major San Diego universities.

As a tutor, I take an active part in development of curriculum for students preparing for course and graduate school admissions exams. I offer help understanding physio from the molecular to organ level, reinforcing concepts with clinical applications and anatomy review whenever helpful.
