About Connor


Bio

I scored a 527 on the Medical College Admissions Test, a 100th percentile score, in September 2020. I received perfect marks (132/132) on the Physics/Chemistry, Bio/Biochemistry, and Psychology/Sociology portions of the exam and 131/132 on CARS. I first took the MCAT in 2014 and scored in the 91st percentile overall. I have been teaching the MCAT since 2016 and worked as a professional MCAT Tutor for 2 years, from 2016 to 2018.

I scored a 527 on the Medical College Admissions Test, a 100th percentile score, in September 2020.

I first took the MCAT in 2014 and scored in the 91st percentile overall. I have been teaching the MCAT since 2016 and worked as a professional MCAT Tutor for 2 years, from 2016 to 2018.

I am a graduate of UC Santa Barbara where I received a Bachelor of Science in Biopsychology and a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies, with an emphasis in South Asian religions. I have been tutoring professionally for 8 years now and I have been teaching MCAT prep, SAT prep, ACT prep, Algebra, Pre-Calculus, Micro and Macrobiology, Organic Chemistry, and English (essay writing, reading comprehension, and grammar).

Rather than focusing on the memorization of facts and formulas, I emphasize a mechanistic perspective when teaching math and science. I find it much easier for a student to learn and retain information when they understand how the data fits into a rational system. This style of learning consequently prepares students to better learn complex information in the future.

Additionally, in high school I scored a 33 on the ACT (99th percentile) and a 2160 on the SAT (98th percentile).

In my free time, I enjoy writing and playing music. I have been playing piano and guitar for 12 years now and I love teaching music theory and musicianship as well.

My math subjects include:
Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, and Pre-Calculus

My science subjects include:
Physics, Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, and Organic Chemistry.

Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions regarding my availability, educational background, teaching experience, or anything else that might help you determine if I am the tutor for you!

Excellent Tutor!

Connor is extremely knowledgeable and experienced and it shows. I finally understand topics I haven't ever fully grasped. His unique techniques to approach MCAT passages has been extremely helpful. I would highly recommend him as a tutor!!

The most helpful and impactful session you could wish to have. He explained everything as thoroughly as possible and helped me have a clear idea of how to approach my studying.

POLITE AND COURTEOUS

Connor is very polite and courteous, which also makes him patient. These traits make him a great guitar teacher. My son has had just few lessons with Connor and has shown satisfactory improvement.

Very knowledgable and friendly tutor

My daughter found his instruction very helpful. He discussed many ways she can improve in the areas where she is struggling (particularly math and verbal), and they worked on developing a study plan she can stick with. We'll definitely be back for future sessions!
