Hi, I’m Oliver. I tutor General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, physics and math. I graduated from the University of Southern California in 2019 with a degree in Global Health, and I’m passionate about sharing my love of science and math with students of all ages.

As a college student, I was successful in Physics with calculus, biochemistry, biology, chemistry and organic chemistry. I’m very confident tutoring all of these subjects. I took the MCAT in 2020 and scored in the 82nd percentile....

Hi, I’m Oliver. I tutor General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, physics and math. I graduated from the University of Southern California in 2019 with a degree in Global Health, and I’m passionate about sharing my love of science and math with students of all ages.

As a college student, I was successful in Physics with calculus, biochemistry, biology, chemistry and organic chemistry. I’m very confident tutoring all of these subjects. I took the MCAT in 2020 and scored in the 82nd percentile. Since this coursework was so recent, I am super confident in my ability to explain STEM topics in a way you’ll understand. My recent students have emphasized how much they appreciate my ability to break down the content and reach their “aha” moment.

I’m an expert in tutoring standardized tests. I received a 770 on the SAT Math section. I also take great pride in working long-term with high school and college students to help them succeed in their STEM classes and achieve their goals. As a recent graduate, I’m very familiar with current testable material and the challenges of college. I’d love to share my own tips and tricks for standardized and classroom tests to help you feel confident and improve your scores.

I pride myself on being open, accessible, and fun to work with. Outside of the classroom, I love running, surfing, climbing, table tennis, camping, backpacking, and most outdoor activities. Please reach out if you have questions about your upcoming test or semester. I’d love to hear about how your studying is going, and how we can work together to achieve your goals. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

Test Preparation

MCAT,

MCAT

I took the MCAT about 4 months ago and received a mid 80th percentile score with high 80th percentile on Chem/Physics, Bio/biochem, and Psychology (128,128,129 respectively). Besides Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills, I feel confident tutoring any section of the MCAT. I've also extensively tutored the Biology, Chemistry, and physics pre requisite courses and am confident I could score higher in those sections now.

great explanations

He really helped me understand a topic I didn’t know how to do and struggled with by relating it with stuff in real life and that really help me understand the topic so if you are struggling with chemistry I would really recommend him as a tutor.

Knowledgeable, good teacher

Oliver is a great tutor. He asked a lot of questions to better understand what I was struggling with. He taught me the lessons that I did not understand in class and helped me through examples. His hourly rate is definitely worth the money. Oliver is friendly and doesn't make me feel stupid for not understanding.
