About Isaac


Bio

When I was in high school, many people told me that I was not a “science person” and that because STEM did not come naturally to me, I could never succeed in science. Fortunately, one biology teacher believed in me and inspired me to step out of my comfort zone and into science.

Now, I am a graduate student doing microbiological research. I have two years of experience as a classroom TA in college biology and have also tutored SAT and AP biology for over two years. I focus on tutoring...

When I was in high school, many people told me that I was not a “science person” and that because STEM did not come naturally to me, I could never succeed in science. Fortunately, one biology teacher believed in me and inspired me to step out of my comfort zone and into science.

Now, I am a graduate student doing microbiological research. I have two years of experience as a classroom TA in college biology and have also tutored SAT and AP biology for over two years. I focus on tutoring test prep for biology and also for college-level biology courses. My role as a tutor is not only to communicate knowledge but to teach tactics to support long-term learning.

The GRE is a key step for many students applying to graduate school but can be very anxiety-provoking. I focus my GRE tutoring on both content and test-taking skills, helping students translate their skills from college to a standardized test. My own GRE scores are a 168 on the verbal section and a 163 on the quantitative section.

Teaching the laboratory section of intro to bio is the highlight of my week, and I carry that enthusiasm over into my online tutoring. I tutor for AP Biology, the SAT Biology subject test, and college biology. After two years of online biology tutoring, I have found that students encounter a bewildering array of study tips. It can be really overwhelming to find something that works for you! In own biology courses and tests, I got a 5 in AP Biology and AP Environmental Science, an 800 in SAT Biology and As on all college-level biology courses. I'm excited to bring my biology skills to helping you achieve your own goals!

To help students become independent learners, I help them build their own toolbox of techniques. For example, I tutored a student once who struggled with understanding how neural impulses travel. I had been explaining it verbally while she took written notes, but for her, switching to drawing pictures instead of writing words made it easier to understand. When I start to work with a student, I always
