About Javi

I'm a 31 year old female medical professional with a passion for life-long learning and teaching various subject matters relevant to medical science. I have been tutoring high school students since 2001 and developed skills to tutor college, doctorate and post-doctorate students as I pursued my own education. I enjoy working with students at various levels. I observe how my students learn best and tailor my tutoring approach accordingly.

My preference is to tutor biological and health sciences to include all levels of biology, physiology and nutrition. I also have experience tutoring SAT I and II. I take an interest in and follow the latest research in preventive medicine and maintain basic skills in osteopathic manipulative medicine and sports medicine.

I received my BA in natural sciences and public health, with a focus in psychology at JHU. I have a doctorate in osteopathic medicine from PCOM and am completing subspecialty training in pathology and laboratory medicine at UCI.

I have a passion for the medically relevant sciences because they have a very important practical application in my profession and personal life, allowing me to play a role in improvement of the health of individuals and populations.
I find it very fulfilling to help others learn and appreciate the sciences and especially, helping cultivate skills to overcome their challenges to excelling in higher education.

Please contact me by email if you have any questions or would like to schedule tutoring. My fee is negotiable.

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 have a medical degree. I started studying biology in the 6th grade and was fascinated by it and have continued studying biology up to this very day. I also have been tutoring biology from high school through graduate school level since 2001.

Cooking

I have been experimenting in the kitchen since I was a child. I am familiar with most methods of cooking and a wide range of Western European, American and Americanized dishes.
My specialty is making healthy and delicious meals. I am creative and can work around food allergies, intolerances strict diets or other dietary restrictions. I have a passion for low-carb, ultra-low carb and the Low-carb high fat cuisine and I get most of my compliments on vegetable dishes and meat dishes.

Fitness

I ran Track & Field and Cross Country competitively since 1999 (in middle school, high school and college). I learned how to train, cross train and strength train, eat for recovery and performance, as well as balance the demands of a student-athlete lifestyle, from more than a dozen coaches.

Nutrition

I completed my Doctorate in Osteopathic Medicine. My coursework at JHU Bloomberg School of Public Health included human nutrition. I follow the latest information in nutrition, including research on PubMed and the University of California YouTube Channel, among various other resources.

Physiology

In my medical training, I excelled in physiology because I sought to understand it - not just memorize. I believe it's imperative for anyone entering the medical field to focus on understanding, which fosters long-term retention, instead of just memorization. The extra initial effort will bring endless future returns, while failing to understand may have future consequences far more significant than a 'bad grade'

Psychology

I earned a bachelor's from Johns Hopkins with a minor focused in psychology and went on to study clinical psychology in my medical degree program. I currently keep up with psychology by reading journals and news letters, including Psychology Today.

Track & Field

I ran Track & Field and Cross Country competitively since 1999 (in middle school, high school and college). I learned how to train, cross train and strength train, eat for recovery and performance, as well as balance the demands of a student-athlete lifestyle, from more than a dozen coaches. I have been a long distance runner since 2007 and an ultra endurance athlete since 2013.
