Hello everyone. My name is Bryan. I have tutored a variety of subjects for over 20 years. I have also worked as a high school science teacher and lab coordinator. My favorite subject is biology, followed by geometry and world history. My favorite part about tutoring is the "ah-hah" moment when a student grasps an idea. I recognize that courses at the high school and college level are often challenging. But I know from experience that once you build a strong foundation, the details fall into place. In addition to tutoring high school and college subjects, I do one on one tutoring for SAT, ACT, GRE and MCAT.
I think the individual approach works better than a group lecture when it comes to test prep. Anyway I'll leave you with a thought - if you're willing to learn, I am thrilled to teach you. When it comes to math, geometry is my favorite subject. Geometry (and math in general) is hard work but can still be fun; I insist my students draw out geometry problems. It makes solving them so much easier and makes learning a memorable experience. Remember, when it comes to geometry, if you can draw it, you can almost always figure it out. My all time favorite subject is science, especially biology because like geometry it is so visually oriented. Now that the internet is so accessible, there is a treasure trove of websites, images and interactive exercises to enhance science learning. I encourage students to take advantage of all of these resources. Please contact me here on WyzAnt. I am flexible and will be happy to work around your schedule.
All the best in your studies,

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.
I took several astronomy courses at Johns Hopkins University and earned an A in all of them. I was also a member of the Birmingham Astronomical Society from 2004-2010.
I have tutored biochemistry at the undergraduate, graduate and medical school levels. Once I break the material down into logical steps, most students find it makes a great deal more sense.
I have tutored chemistry on and off for over 20 years.
I excelled at chemistry at Johns Hopkins University.
I excelled in genetics courses as a biology major at Johns Hopkins; in medical school at Penn State and graduate school at UAB. I have a gift for explaining the concepts of genetics to students at the high school and college levels. The key to learning genetics - much like geometry - is to sketch the problem. Pictures really are worth 1,000 words.
I took the MCAT several years ago and scored a solid 35 (24 was the average). I have tutored students for the MCAT for over 10 years. I understand the key to test preparation in general and the MCAT in particular: First, learn the essential facts and second, practice as much as possible to consolidate the information. Practice = higher scores.
I emphasize hands on learning with slides and flash cards. I've learned that is the best way to earn a good grade in microbiology - it is a memory intensive course when all is said and done.
I graduated from the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy in 2014. Most of the curriculum (3 years out of 4) relates to pharmacology in one way or another. I enjoy teaching pharmacology because it ties together organic chemistry, biochemistry, cell biology and physiology.
I have successfully passed the Praxis I as well as several Praxis II exams. The Praxis subjects I specialize in include World History, Biology, Chemistry and High School Math. The key to success is to practice and review as many Praxis test questions as possible. I can help you accomplish your goal of passing the Praxis.
