About Jesus

Dear scholar, you have come to the right place. The WyzAnt community is full of highly competitive and professional tutors that share a genuine interest in helping you succeed. I humbly consider myself one of them. My ultimate goal is not only to empower you to score higher, to master challenging course material or to gain an edge in your study skills, but also to become a self-powered, effective and audacious student capable of accomplishing all of your current and future academic goals. As a seasoned science tutor and current medical student, I will share with you my unique secrets to developing an enriching and productive intellectual life. The journey of the science student is very demanding and full of obstacles, but I strongly believe that every person has the potential to push through and reach their destination. That's right! The only one who can stop you is yourself. In addition, by teaming up with a knowledgeable and motivating mentor (like me) you will get that extra push needed to transform your potential energy (feeling you can do it) into kinetic energy (actually doing it)!

My teaching style is dynamic rather than passive by encouraging and demanding student participation, note taking, self-reflection/feedback, inductive reasoning and critical thinking. By doing so, I will help you to increase your academic confidence and to calibrate your study abilities in order to perform at an exceptionally high level. Ultimately, I use the following strategies: (1) teach effective study skills and memory tricks based on the latest psychological and neuroscience findings, (2) communicate ideas or concepts in order to elicit or probe your knowledge, (3) provide constructive criticism and academic feedback by addressing your weaknesses and strengths and finally (4) elaborate ways on how to ameliorate your academic deficiencies using individualized practice problems, homework and visual/audio means when applicable.

As a learning assistant (LA) in college, I tutored various subjects including general biology, genetics, general and organic chemistry, physiology, and microbiology. I also spent an entire summer as an instructor for human biology through the Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL) program at Florida International University (FIU). In addition, for the past two years I've been tutoring clients and colleagues in the general, physical and organic branches of chemistry as well as in the MCAT. Finally, as a veteran WyzAnt tutor I have experienced a wide array of tutoring needs and have become fully proficient at fulfilling them.

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.

Biology

For further review please consider my academic qualifications (courses taken)in biology: BSC 1010 General Biology I & Lab, BSC 1011 General Biology II & Lab, BSC 2023 Human Biology, PCB 3063 Genetics, CHM 4304 Biochemistry I & Lab, CHM 4307 Biochemistry II, ZOO 3753 Histology, MCB 3020 General Microbiology, CHM 4300 Bio-organic Chemistry, PCB 4023 Cell & Molecular Biology + Lab, PCB 3043 Ecology, and PCB 3703 Human Physiology I. In addition, I've been an active chemistry and biology tutor for the past two years.

Chemistry

For further review please consider my academic qualifications (courses taken): CHM 1045 General Chemistry I & Lab, CHM 1046 General Chemistry II & Lab, CHM 2210 Organic Chemistry I & Lab, CHM 2211 Organic Chemistry II & Lab, CHM 3120 Intro to Analytical Chemistry & Lab, CHM 3400 Fundamentals of Physical Chemistry & Lab, CHM 4300 Bio-Organic Chemistry, CHM 4220 Advanced Organic Chemistry, CHM 4230L Organic Structure Determination, CHM 4304 Biochemistry I & Lab and Biochemistry II. Finally, I've been an active tutor for the past two years helping friends and colleagues in chemistry and biology.

Genetics

I have tutored genetics for the past 2 years, specifically, as an undergraduate student at Florida International University through the PLTL program.
