About Cara Marie


Bio

I've been tutoring high school, college students and adult life-long learners for the past 10 years, in a variety of math and science subjects. In college, I was a math major and I've continued to successfully tutor students in everything from Algebra I to Calculus I, II, Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra and Differential Equations. For math majors looking for extra help, advanced math is also one of my specialties.

I also have a PhD in biochemistry. I've taught in a classroom...

I've been tutoring high school, college students and adult life-long learners for the past 10 years, in a variety of math and science subjects. In college, I was a math major and I've continued to successfully tutor students in everything from Algebra I to Calculus I, II, Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra and Differential Equations. For math majors looking for extra help, advanced math is also one of my specialties.

I also have a PhD in biochemistry. I've taught in a classroom setting Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry. I've also been tutoring other aspects of the physical sciences, including college level Physics I and II, General Biology 1 and 2, Physiology, as well as Organic Chemistry I and II and Biochemistry. College students studying advanced science--I'm the tutor for you.

One of my greatest strengths is tutoring for the MCAT, which combines all aspects of the biochemical and physical sciences. I've also helped high school students achieve success in Biology, Physics, and Chemistry, at all levels - from regular track to 4's and 5's on the AP exams. I work individually with each student to identify their problem areas and to address their specific needs.

I enjoy working with students and find great pleasure in seeing my students succeed. I'm patient and am skilled at explaining ideas and concepts in multiple ways to accommodate the needs of the students. I have a laid back demeanor, and I try to make studying science and math as stress-free and enjoyable and enjoyable. I will always answer your calls and texts, and I'm great at responding to emergency "My problem set is due tomorrow?!?!" or "I have a test when?!" situations.

I'm always happy to provide references from the parents of previous students if you'd like them.

If you have any questions at all, or are interested in working with me, please don't hesitate to email!

MCAT,

MCAT

MCAT is hands, down, the subject that I tutor most frequently. I target the test-taking and scientific analysis skills required to succeed on the MCAT through a mix of problems, scientific literature and passage analysis. I am well-versed in teaching any of the sciences covered on the exam - General chemistry, Organic chemistry, Biochemistry, Physics and Biology. I also run a daily MCAT group that is designed to target the highest yield topics on the MCAT. Each group session is 30 mins long, online and recorded so that students can review the video at their convenience; the teaching is interactive and students can ask questions during the mini-lecture. In addition, to cover the psychology/sociology portion of the exam and the CARS section of the exam, I've partnered with two amazing tutors who teach group sessions on Psych/Soc material and the CARS material covered by the MCAT. During group, we are constantly reviewing high yield MCAT material and teaching in the way the AAMC tests the topics. We often have more than 2-3 MCAT topics being covered each day in group and sessions are unlimited. All of the study materials you need are also provided, including textbooks, practice problems, review books and practice passages. I also do one-on-one tutoring for the Chem/Phys and Bio/Biochem portions of the exam, but the group is designed to be affordable, personalized and a great way to keep MCAT material fresh until your test day!
