About Hovhannes

Hey everyone! My name is Hovhannes, and I am a 4th year at UCLA and major in molecular, cell, and developmental biology. I have been tutoring inorganic/organic chemistry both at Valley and at Pierce Colleges for about 2 years as well as AP/SAT biology, AP calculus and physics for about a year at EdBoost center in Culver City. I am a College Reading and Learning (CRLA) certified tutor, which means you can be confident about not only my academic skills but also teaching skills. In May 2015 I received Chemistry award from Pierce College for outstanding performance in General Chemistry. In addition, I have worked at Pierce College Chemistry department as a laboratory technician for a year, where I gained a great experience in the field. I recently joined Donahue lab at David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA as a research associate. The lab primarily focused on studying pancreatic cancer. Deep conceptual understanding of the subject and experience in the field makes it possible for me to make real life connections with any topic of the subject for my students. It is much easier to learn something that is so closely related to our day-to-day life. I am very enthusiastic about tutoring, and my emphasis is on conceptual understanding of the subject.

Thank you very much for your feedback. Katrina is an amazing and a very smart student, and I have no doubt that she will succeed in whatever she decides to pursue in her life!

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.

Biology

I am 4th year student majoring in Molecular, cell, and developmental biology at UCLA with cumulative GPA of 4.0/4.0. I have more than 2 years experience in tutoring life and physical sciences at college level. I have been tutoring AP/SAT Biology test prep for the last year. I have laboratory work experience, and i am very familiar with molecular biology techniques used for studying cells. I am currently a research associate at Donahue pancreatic cancer research lab at David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.

Chemistry

I have completed General Chemistry sequence with an excellent grades. I have been tutoring chemistry both at Pierce and at Valley Colleges for more than a year. I have a Chemistry award from Pierce College for an outstanding performance in General Chemistry. I am CRLA certified tutor. I have been working as a Chemistry laboratory technician at Pierce College for a year.

Organic Chemistry

I have taken a semester of organic chemistry at Valley college, and a quarter of organic chemistry at UCLA where I received an A. I have been tutoring organic chemistry at Valley college for more than a year. The first steps of understanding ochem is to be able to visualize 3D structures of various molecules and just in general how they behave in 3D world. I have noticed that this is what new students have most trouble with because they try to approach ochem the same way as general chemistry but it's not very useful. I help students struggling in ochem by stressing the important concepts and developing the new way of approaching problems that is essential for success in ochem. I am CRLA certified tutor.
