About Jimmy

Hello! I recently graduated UCLA summa cum laude in Microbiology, Immunology, and Molecular genetics, and will be starting medical school in Fall 2017. In the mean time, I hope to broaden my experiences in one of my most fulfilling passions---teaching! Since early on in my college career, I've actively been involved in education. For three years, I worked as an site administrator for a program that provided tutoring and mentoring to K-6th youth in the Los Angeles area, especially in areas such as Math and Science. Afterwards, I worked as an after school elementary instructor, managing my own class of 25 students and teaching my own lesson plans in Math, Science, Language Arts, and Social Studies.

I also have experience teaching at the college level. During my senior year, I worked as a teaching assistant for a Microbiology course, lecturing students and providing one-on-one help during my office hours. I have also worked as a volunteer writing coach, editing student essays for courses. Additionally, I've provided private tutoring in preparation for the MCAT exam. If you or your child are aiming to apply to undergraduate or medical school, I can provide assistance with writing personal statements and preparing for standardized tests.

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.

MCAT

I took the MCAT during the summer of 2015 and scored in the upper 98th percentile in Psychology/Sociology and Chemistry/Physics and in the 99th percentile in Biology/Biochemistry. Since then, I have provided individualized tutoring to peers at the university level. Please contact me if you need a verification of my scores.

Organic Chemistry

During my teaching assistant position at UCLA for a biology course, a lot of students were taking organic chemistry concurrently. I was able to help this students with organic chemistry problem solving, as there was a strong intersection between that course and the one that I took. I also scored in the upper 98th percentile of the organic chemistry section of the MCAT exam, and have helped students work on study skills for that section as well.
