Dear science student, I am pleased to inform you that you have come to the right place. The WyzAnt community is full of highly competitive and professional tutors that have 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 accepted medical school applicant, I will share with you my unique secrets to an enjoyable and productive intellectual life. The science journey is not an easy one (I give you that), but I strongly believe that every person has the potential to turn things around. That's right! The only thing that can stop you is yourself, specially, if you team up with a knowledgeable and motivating mentor that will give you that extra push to help you transform your potential energy into kinetic energy!
My teaching style is centered around you, that is, I like to make my sessions dynamic rather than passive by allowing you to explore potential options and think about a problem critically. In doing so, I make you less dependent on me and more dependent on your abilities. I do this by (1) teaching effective study skills and memory tricks based on the latest psychological and neuroscientific findings, (2) communicating ideas or concepts in a way meant to elicit or probe your knowledge, (3) providing constructive criticism and academic feedback by addressing your weaknesses and strengths and finally (4) by elaborating ways on how to ameliorate your academic deficiencies using individualized practice problems 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 friends and colleagues in the general, physical and organic branches of chemistry. Finally, as a veteran WyzAnt tutor I have experienced a wide range of tutoring needs and have become proficient and adaptable in fulfilling them. Dear science student, I am pleased to inform you that you have come to the right place. The WyzAnt community is full of highly competitive and professional tutors that have a genuine interest in helping you succeed. I humbly consider myself one of them. My ultimate goal is not only to
(1) Same rate for all subjects. (2) Cost will be negotiated for groups of 2-4.
Jesus is a great tutor and very knowledgeable in Chemistry. He was a great help and helped push me to understand the information I needed. He made sure I would understand concepts and reinforce them with practice problems. I would recommend Jesus, as he is a great tutor!
Jesus was able to teach me chemistry concepts in a way I can understand and he was able to help me execute chemistry problems in the way my professor will ask on the test. He is encouraging and very knowledgeable!
Jesus was great in tutoring me with the Orgo material that can be found on the MCAT! Very knowledgeable. Highly recommend to anyone needing assistance!
Fantastic tutor! Jesus has helped me the past couple of days for my organic chemistry 2 final exam. With his help, I am understanding the material very well, and I am confident I will do well on the exam. He is extremely patient, and explains the material very well. He is very professional and always on time. I highly recommend him as a tutor!
He is one of the best tutors that I could have found. Besides being super smart, he knows what you need to know and prepares you to be above expectations. He is the best! I certainly recommend!
Jesus is always on time and well prepared for the sessions. He makes notes along with me in order to record the topics that we are studying and keeps in mind the dates of my exams so we go over everything on time. I really like the way he explains everything because he makes orgo very simple, something that not everyone is good at. I have already recommended him to my friends and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for an orgo tutor.
I contacted Jesus for MCAT tutoring. He responded to my inquiry within a few hours, and we scheduled our first meeting on the following day. Our first meeting was great, we discussed my academic goals (medical school matriculation), reviewed my application, and designed an MCAT study schedule. I met with Jesus several times; he was a patient teacher and flexible with my irregular work schedule. Most importantly, Jesus has a highly impressive command of all topics that are covered by the MCAT exam, and is intimately familiar with the medical school admissions process. He is a highly valuable resource and I strongly recommend him for any student seeking tutoring for the MCAT exam, any related field of study, or for medical school admissions coaching.
If I need additional MCAT help in the future, I will return for his assistance.
Class was great. Jesus was very much on time and very professional. He was very alert of my needs and he helped me greatly. Thank you!!!
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.

I have used the Examkrackers and Kaplan test preparation materials extensively and I have become strongly familiar with the test and its format. I have also completed over 20 MCAT Full-Lengths which have allowed me to gain an in-depth understanding of the test concepts and its applications. In addition, after tutoring several colleagues for about 6 months, all have obtained competitive overall and sectional scores.
