About Anthony

Hi everyone! I am currently applying to medical school this cycle! Since I have submitted all my applications, what's left is the wait for interviews and a lot of free time to tutor and share my passion for science.

As an undergraduate student, I was a teaching apprentice for the upper division course Sensation and Perception where I facilitated lectures with demonstrations, held weekly office hours and review sessions before examinations. In addition, I volunteered at the Jackie Robinson YMCA to help high school students with their assignments. Extracurricularly, I co-founded the Judo club at UCSD, developed and lead specific workout regimes to foster learning for beginning and expert participants. What I have learned from my experiences as a student and as an instructor is that being enthusiastic means a lot to people.

For me, one of my greatest thrills is the moment when a difficult concept finally clicks. And coming from a psychology background, I know how easy it is to get lost in hard science topics. But as my interest in science advanced from research, great instructors, and the incredible capacity of modern medicine, I realized I love sharing with people the particular "trick" that helped me get through the mental obstacle to understanding electrostatics, acid/base chemistry, or cellular respiration.

Thank you for reading through my description. I prefer tutoring high school and college students.

I'm looking forward to meeting you,
Anthony

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.

Chemistry

I took 3 quarters of general chemistry at UCSD and 1 quarter of general chemistry lab. Currently I am studying for the MCAT exam for second time so the material is fresh in my head. My strong organic chemistry and physics background have offered me insight on explaining difficult chemistry concepts. Particularly for chemistry, it is essential to understand the basics before moving forward.

Organic Chemistry

I took 3 quarters of organic chemistry at UCSD and 1 quarter of organic chemistry lab. Currently I am studying for the MCAT exam for second time and have scored a 10 on biological sciences on my first MCAT exam. I have tutored several students in organic chemistry already at UCSD.

Physics

I took 3 quarters of physics and 3 quarters of physics lab. In high school, I also passed the AP physics exam (non calculus- based). Understanding how to manipulate units helped me understand the relationships between different physics concepts. But it is also important to note that completely different approaches and concepts can be applied to understand the same event.

Super patient and understanding. Awsome!

Anthony took me step by step through topics I knew but didn't understand. He helped me make super detailed notes and made me feel a lot more confident about things covered in lecture!
