UCSB (Biochemistry)

About David

I love science -- especially biochemistry and organic chemistry. I genuinely like the subjects I've listed to tutor, and I'd love to show students that they're not intimidating. I am passionate about helping students of all levels navigate "difficult" and "frustrating" material from a place of confusion to clarity and understanding.

I graduated with a B.S. in Biochemistry from UCSB and have experience tutoring Biochemistry, Biology, A.P. Biology, Chemistry, Microbiology, Anatomy, Physiology, Organic Chemistry, and MCAT prep.

Contact me if you'd like to talk more or schedule an appointment.

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.


I have taken the MCAT exam and scored in the 90th percentile (34). Currently I work as an MCAT instructor for a test prep company.

Microsoft Windows

I am very familiar with all aspects of Microsoft Windows and Office. I have worked in laboratories that required local networking knowledge. In addition I am familiar with remote networking, website design, and database management.

Organic Chemistry

I have successfully completed 1 year of organic chemistry with lab at UCSB. Additionally I currently tutor this subject on a weekly basis.


I took 1 year of pharmacology lab and lecture courses while at UCSB. Additionally, I worked as a TA in the instructional pharmacology labs on campus.

Study Skills

I have experience teaching and tutoring in various subjects. I currently work as an MCAT instructor. Nearly every day I work with students to build test-taking and study skills.


I have helped many students with writing, editing papers, and proofreading.
