Hi everyone,

I am a Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology graduate from UCLA (summa cum laude, GPA 3.93) and a current 2nd year medical student at University of Illinois with tutoring experience in biology and histology. I have 5 years of lab research experience and am listed as an author in 2 publications and a pending publication. I am looking forward to helping you with any level of biology from elementary school to college, AP Biology (my score: 4), SAT Biology, MCAT, lab techniques, how to interpret lab results or scientific papers, how to write a scientific paper, how to prepare a research presentation/poster and how to present your scientific research. I am enthusiastic about this subject and enjoy breaking down complex concepts into simpler ones for my students.

I am also a native Turkish speaker with previous experience in language tutoring. As a non-native but fluent English speaker, I know what it takes to learn a new language and I'll make sure that our lessons are engaging.

As an international student studying in the U.S. for the past 11 years, I know firsthand the unique challenges that students may experience due to language and cultural barriers and how to academically excel despite these challenges. I love connecting with students through tutoring and helping them reach their full academic potential.

I am looking forward to helping you excel academically and have fun in the process :)

Turkish

As a native Turkish speaker, I have the necessary knowledge to teach the Turkish language. As a fluent English speaker living in the U.S., I have firsthand experience learning a new language and integrating this new language into my daily life. I have experience in language tutoring as I previously taught English to Turkish students. I think that the best way to excel in a new language is by speaking it with a native speaker and participating in engaging activities during tutoring sessions to improve reading, writing and speaking skills.

Biochemistry

As a second-year medical student, I have extensive Biochemistry knowledge both from my medical education and premedical curriculum. I have previous teaching experience at various levels including: middle school, high school, college, and medical school. I'll be happy to assist you with this challenging subject by making it easier to understand and enjoyable.
Microbiology,

Microbiology

I am a second-year medical student with a B.S. in Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology from UCLA. I have previous teaching experience and performed microbiology research (specifically, isolated and characterized a novel bacteriophage) as a high school student. I'll be happy to assist you with the microbiology curriculum (up to any level including college) and with any questions regarding microbiology research.
Physiology,

Physiology

As a second-year medical student, I have a solid understanding of Physiology and love to break down complex Physiology concepts into simpler ones for my students to understand. Physiology can look scary at first but once you start understanding "why" and "how" processes in the human body work, it becomes one of the most easily understandable and enjoyable topics in medicine.
Psychology,

Psychology

I am a second year medical student with MCAT and medical school level psychology expertise. I am planning to become a psychiatrist and would love to help you out with MCAT or medical school level psychology/psychiatry.
