About Tim

I just graduated cum-laude last May with a bachelors of science in Food Science and Nutrition. I'm new to formal tutoring; however, I've been helping out my friends with science homework and test prep for years, and, as the senior undergraduate in a biomedical research laboratory, I have taught laboratory techniques and how to apply scientific concepts to a research setting to peers with no prior experience in either.

As somebody with a reading disability myself, I like to come up with more creative, metaphorical, and visual ways to teach topics in order to augment or replace material learned through blanket memorization. I'm pretty chill you guys. While I think the top priority of a tutor is to help teach material, I believe a close second is to build up confidence and to limit stress, especially for exams.

I am primarily a science tutor (Biology, Organic and General Chemistry, Physics) for students that range from middle school to entry-level college courses, excluding calculus-based physics. I can also help with science AP, science SAT II, and MCAT exam prep.

In college I received A's and B's in all of my science courses. On the MCAT I scored in the top 10th percentile, including the top 3rd percentile for the biology sub-section, the top 8th for psychology, the top 20th for chemistry and physical science, and the top 20th for CARS

My base rate is $45 per hour, and I am very open to private or group tutoring sessions. This rate can be subject to increase for MCAT exam prep on an individual bases
