About Yousuf

My name is Yousuf, and I'm a 4th year Medical Student who attends Des Moines University - College of Osteopathic Medicine. I think personalized tutoring is the best way for you to learn, because it caters to your exact needs and you can be taught at your own pace. I tutor a variety of subjects ranging from the sciences to reading and English. The science subjects I tutor include: biology, chemistry, microbiology, physiology, and others. I also have experience in test prep, as I taught the MCAT for The Princeton Review, and can also prepare students for the ACT and SAT.

Whether you need help in a high school or college class, or test prep such as the ACT or SAT, I'm confident that a personal and focused tutoring experience can help you to improve your grades or learn the subject you desire.

I tutor both students and adults.

Feel free to contact me!

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.

Genetics

I excelled at genetics in college. It was one of my favorite subjects by far. It's fascinating, and relevant, as it is the genetic code that is the basis for all life.

MCAT

I got a 33 on the MCAT. I taught the MCAT for the Princeton Review. I am a current medical student.

Study Skills

As an MCAT teacher, it wasn't only about teaching the subjects, but also helping students to manage their time and set a schedule for studying. Because its such a long and comprehensive test, this aspect was just as important as knowing all the facts. I gave students tips and strategies that cut down studying time and made memorizing the material easier. I also tutored high school students for clubZ tutoring in biology, and it was important for students to learn how to study before they could actually learn the material. I helped them to do this, so they could do better on tests and homework.

WOW - very organized and makes studying seem easy — I hired Yousuf to help my son prepare for the ASVAB test. I scheduled the first meeting for 2 hours and my son came out of this session more confident than he was prior to their meeting. I was immediately impressed with how Yousuf was able to connect with my son so quickly. Yousuf was very prepared as well, and he knew exactly what materials my son needed before their 1st meeting. My son has str ...
