About Michelle

I am a recent college graduate working in clinical research and tutoring (over 3 years experience) while applying for medical school. Tutoring experience includes: Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Math (various subjects), Writing, and Literature . The majority of these tutoring experiences have been for middle school, high school or college students.

I take great pride in seeing my students succeed and grow, whether it be in improved grades, confidence in the subject, and/or studying skills. As I have tutored various ages and levels of experience, I always tailor my tutoring to what works best for my students and their goals. In particular, I focus on understanding the material and building study skills, while working to achieve desired grades. I work with my students to help build good habits for success in addition to basic tutoring.

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.

Biology

After excelling at UCI, I have been able to take my knowledge of the concepts in biological sciences, and also the skills needed to remember material long-term to apply this to my tutoring. I remember how difficult it can be to learn Biology and I would be happy to help you succeed and enjoy this fascinating subject.

Organic Chemistry

I have completed three quarter courses in organic chemistry at UC Irvine, passing each of these courses with a B+, A, A. I then tutored in this subject for the MCAT for about a quarter. I focus not only on memorization and understanding of the concepts for this subject, but I also encourage visualizing the molecules and flashcards.
