About Ivan

I have been tutoring for 2 years, both as a private tutor and a teacher’s assistant. I accept students of all ages as I have tutored college level students as well as elementary school students. I approach teaching by assessing my student’s strengths and weaknesses, followed by addressing confusions to until he/she is confident in the material.

I have taught a variety of subjects but primarily specialize in MCAT, biology, neuroscience, chemistry, and math. I graduated from UC Irvine with a B.S. in neurobiology and afterwards I worked as a research fellow at the National Institutes of Health. Altogether, I have 5.5 years’ experience working in cellular/molecular neuroscience labs so I bring a deep understanding of many biology and chemistry concepts with real world applications.

I love science and math and hope to bring my enjoyment and confidence to you! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. :)

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 worked in cellular/molecular neuroscience labs for 5.5 years so I have used biology/biochemical principles on a day to day basis. I love science and math and hope to share my enjoyment with you! :)

MCAT

I obtained a 99 percentile (521) on the new MCAT (Chem/Physics:99%, CARS: 90%, Bio/Biochem: 99%, Psych/Soc: 99%) and have done questions from all the major test companies, including AAMC, Examkrackers, Nextstep, Kaplan, The Princeton Review, Altius, and The Berkeley Review. Thus, I am very familiar with the questions that might be asked. In addition, I have a B.S. in neurobiology and have conducted cellular/molecular neuroscience research for 5.5 years so I can discuss biology/biochemistry and psychology/sociology concepts in great detail. In terms of teaching experience, I have been tutoring for two years both as a private tutor and a teacher’s assistant. I primarily focus on subjects like MCAT, math, chemistry, and biology.

Good communication & punctual

Ivan's response time to me was prompt. He was able to accommodate my daughter with an algebra lesson with less than 24hr notice. He demonstrated an openness to adjust his teaching approach, post lesson, asking how the experience & flow went. His great communication alone was worth more than his affordable hourly rate.
