About Lucas


Bio

I love teaching science because it is a subject that we are all inextricably connected to. My philosophy is to teach students in a way that will allow them to understand fundamental chemical/biological processes, rather than memorize them. Establishing proficiency in fundamentals is imperative to your success in later topics and advanced classes like cellular biology and molecular biology. For example, although it might be a little more tedious up-front to conceptually understand chemical...

I love teaching science because it is a subject that we are all inextricably connected to. My philosophy is to teach students in a way that will allow them to understand fundamental chemical/biological processes, rather than memorize them. Establishing proficiency in fundamentals is imperative to your success in later topics and advanced classes like cellular biology and molecular biology. For example, although it might be a little more tedious up-front to conceptually understand chemical equations rather than memorize them, the future benefits of improved understanding are well worth it. It is my job to make studying for science exams more approachable and to stimulate effective learning.

I am a semester away from receiving a double major with a B.S. in biochemistry, cell, and molecular biology and a B.A. in Chemistry. I've taken many chemistry and biology courses and I've seen what it takes to succeed, both at the high school level, as well as, the college level. I've taken everything from the AP Chemistry exam to the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) and have received competitive scores. I've also taken countless university exams ranging from free response, math-based, multiple-choice, conceptual, and memorization exams. Each exam requires a different study approach like each student requires individualized study techniques. Through careful examination of the exam materials and the student's strengths and weaknesses, a proper study plan can be crafted to effectively conquer any exam.

I am usually available most days of the week and weekend except Thursday.

Biology

I have been studying expanded biology for 4 years at Drake University. I've taken courses dealing with molecular biology, genetics, general biology, anatomy & physiology, biochemistry, and mammalian physiology. I've also scored in the 99th percentile on the biology/biochemistry section on the MCAT.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

I am currently earning a secondary B.A. degree in chemistry along with my primary Biochemistry degree, so chemistry is the fundamental backbone of my education. I've also taken the MCAT and have scored competitively in the chemistry and physics section.

Physical Science

Physical Science

Many physical science topics are covered in greater detail at the university level. I've performed in the top 5% of students taking courses such as general chemistry, organic chemistry, quantitative chemical analysis, biochemistry, and physics.
