About Zoe

I recently graduated with a Biology degree from Brown University and am preparing to apply to medical school. In the meantime, I am working as an Emergency Medical Technician and tutoring organic chemistry, general chemistry, biology, and MCAT preparation. I love tutoring because I get to help students reach their goals, and at the same time cement my own understanding of the material, which will help me in medical school, so it's a win-win! In January 2017 I scored in the 99th percentile on the MCAT (521) and I am eager to share study tips and tricks to help others achieve similar scores. A student I recently tutored for SAT English and Writing every week was able to improve her score by 40 percentile points.

If you would like a patient, encouraging tutor to help you in chemistry or the biological sciences, contact me to schedule tutor sessions. Hope to hear from you!

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

Biology degree from Brown University, class of 2015

Chemistry

I've taken several chemistry courses at Brown and I've enjoyed tutoring general and organic chemistry students through Wyzant. I'm keeping up my general and organic chemistry skills as I prepare for my MCAT.

Drawing

I've taken several years of drawing classes, including artistic anatomy and scientific illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design, in addition to figure drawing, human ecorche, and figure painting at the Los Angeles Academy of Fine Arts and advanced visual art at Brown.

MCAT

I took the MCAT on 1/28/17 and scored 521 (99th percentile): 130 in chem/phys, 130 in CARS, 131 in bio, and 130 in psych/soc. I have plenty of tutoring experience and would be happy to share my study secrets to help others achieve high MCAT scores as well. I recently graduated with a Biology degree from Brown University and am preparing to apply to medical school.

Organic Chemistry

I've completed two semesters of college-level organic chemistry with lab. I am also keeping up my organic chemistry knowledge and skills as I study for the January 2017 MCAT.

SAT Writing

I achieved a perfect score on the writing section of my SAT. My last SAT tutoree improved her overall SAT score by 38 percentile points.

Volleyball

I have 4 years on a competitive college club team competing at Nationals

Very knowledgeable and patient

My son has been struggling with chemistry since day one and Zoe has been very helpful in this regard. She comes up with creative analogies to help him understand complicated concepts. Zoe is very good and patient when it comes to explaining scientific concepts and being able to simplify them to make them more comprehensible. Would definitely recommend her.
