About Sol


Bio

Hi, learners! I'm Sol. I am graduating from the University of Illinois at Chicago with an intention to study medicine. Through most of my undergraduate years, I tutored college and high school students various subjects starting from writing, to math and science. I later became employed by the UIC Science Learning Center, where I teach general chemistry and organic chemistry to a group of 5-10 students 4 times a week.

Hi, learners! I'm Sol. I am graduating from the University of Illinois at Chicago with an intention to study medicine. Through most of my undergraduate years, I tutored college and high school students various subjects starting from writing, to math and science. I later became employed by the UIC Science Learning Center, where I teach general chemistry and organic chemistry to a group of 5-10 students 4 times a week. I really am on a first name basis with most of the introductory college science courses, and that is exactly where I try to get my students. I am a huge fan of metaphors and analogies from everyday life, quirky mnemonics and visual learning strategies. I am also a huge hater of unnecessary big "sciency" words, especially in education. I will not only teach you how to solve a single particular problem, I will teach you to make connections and generalizations between the things you learn in different classes, and to come to the exam with a solid but flexible strategy in your pocket.

I have tutored science intensively in the past for both high school and college students.

I also recently scored in the 97th percentile on the MCAT after only 5-weeks of prep.

As an undergrad, I had a stubborn habit of never asking for help and always insisting on figuring everything out on my own. Don't follow my example! Help is within reach. Schedule a lesson with me and get on top of your academic and professional ambitions.

Made 7-year old love chemistry

Sol was terrific. My 7-year old wanted to know about chemistry so bad he asked for chemistry lessons and Sol was terrific with him. She built models so he could see how atoms and molecules work. She also reviewed everything with him and asked him lots of questions along the way to make sure he followed, understood, and remembered. He is very excited for his next lesson.
