About Michael

Hi I'm Mike! I recently graduated from the University of Illinois with a degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology and I will be attending medical school beginning in the summer of 2017.
As a tutor, I am primarily interested in teaching science subjects and helping students with MCAT preparation. I possess extensive experience as an educator as well as a thorough mastery of many scientific disciplines including the science content covered on the new MCAT (scored in the 92nd percentile with a 3.77 undergraduate GPA).
If you are interested in having a lesson, feel free to shoot me a message and I would be more than happy to answer any questions regarding my areas of expertise and curriculum.

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

As a Molecular and Cellular Biology major, I have taken several genetics courses and I have been successful in all of them. In addition, I have never received less than an A- in any of my Biology courses during my time at the University of Illinois.

MCAT

I recently took the MCAT on January 23rd and received a 514 (92nd percentile, 1st attempt). I am intimately familiar with the material covered by the exam as well as the best techniques to approach the passage-based questions. I have already received lots of positive feedback for my MCAT lessons and I would like to share my knowledge and experience with you as well.

Organic Chemistry

Along with Biology, Organic Chemistry is my favorite subject. I received an A+ in my organic chemistry course at my University and I scored in the 97th percentile in the Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems section of the MCAT. I have a thorough understanding of this subject and can explain what is happening in a reaction along with why it is happening.

Sociology

I received an A grade in my undergraduate sociology course. Also I scored in the 97th percentile in the Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior section of the MCAT. I know how to present Sociological concepts in a straightforward and thorough way that will allow for thorough understanding and retention.

Amazing tutor!

I am studying for the new MCAT, and I've never taken anatomy and physiology. Today, Michael did a thorough review of the nervous system, including action potential, chemical gradients, electrochemical gradients, etc. He provided numerous visuals, notes, practice questions and excellent explanations. I've had other tutors try to teach me anatomy and physiology, and he is by far the easiest to under
