About Arash

Hi, I'm Arash and I received a Bachelors and Masters degrees in Molecular Biology from the University of California, San Diego. I've worked in both academic laboratories and industry for the last 5 years, and am currently completing a Post-Bacc program at UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine and in the process of applying to medical school. As a graduate student at UCSD, I was required to TA for a number of biology courses, and received the Division of Biological Sciences Excellence in Teaching Award as a result of highly positive student feedback. The experience made me realize that I enjoy teaching for many of the same reasons that I want to become a physician. Holding a leadership role in either a medical or academic setting is highly stringent on one's ability to successfully condense complicated information to facilitate understanding. Helping someone overcome roadblocks to understand a difficult concept is extremely rewarding and mastering those concepts well enough to teach them is gratifying in its own right.

While my specialty is college level biology, I have a diverse academic background in the physical and life sciences (as necessary for medical college admission testing) and feel confident teaching or tutoring any and all MCAT subjects in addition to the following high school and college level subjects: AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Physics, General Biology, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Microbiology, Genetics, Human Physiology, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Physics.

Additionally, I can help students study for the MCAT, polish their understanding of the college and graduate school applications process, and give them the foundation to draft a distinguished personal statement. Please feel free to contact me with any personal questions or if you would like to discuss how we can design a strategy to make you or your child operate at the highest capacity for success.

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.

College Counseling

I have over 6 years of experience in higher level academic institutions, including applications processes for undergraduate, and graduate level admissions. I can help you build on your story to write a stellar personal statement, and give you information regarding transferring from junior college or going straight from high school to a 4-year University.

Genetics

I hold an M.Sc. degree in biology. I previously tutored for genetics. I was a molecular biology major, and I worked in genetic manipulation-based laboratory for two years.

MCAT

I have a Master of Science degree in Biology, have hand's on experience with conceptual problems from extended laboratory work experience, took the MCAT and scored around 95th percentile, and am currently applying to competitive medical schools across the nation.

Organic Chemistry

I took upper-division organic chemistry series with lab as a college student, mastered subject material before taking MCAT and scoring 98th-percentile range for that subject test, and tutored o-chem students regularly as an undergrad.

Pharmacology

As a graduate student, I took Pharmacology at UCSD and received an A in the class. I have extensive study notes and can prepare handouts or study questions to facilitate learning.
