About Philip

I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh as a University Scholar, meaning I was ranked in the top two percent of students at the University. In addition to that award, I received the Chancellor's Undergraduate Research Fellowship and an Outstanding Intern Award for research I completed as an intern at the Asthma, Allergy, and Autoimmunity Institute of Allegheny Health Network. I also recently took the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) and scored in the 99th percentile.

I tutored high school students in all subjects while I was an undergraduate. I also served as a teaching assistant for an upper level human physiology class at the University of Pittsburgh. During my junior and senior years I served as a lead organic chemistry lab instructor. This required me to not only teach students, but to evaluate and grade their assignments. Through this process, I have learned how to effectively help others improve their own work.

I volunteered at Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh which gave me experience working with students of all ages. I have an understanding that each student is unique and requires a specific teaching style. I have learned to mold my teaching accordingly by being particularly attentive to the learning style of each individual student.

I have completed research in evolutionary biology, developmental biology, and cellular biology. This enables me to provide my students with real world examples of the material they are learning to help them thoughtfully engage the material and make connections between subjects. I am currently researching at the National Institute of Health and hope to help others find the joy in science.

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.

MCAT

I recently took the MCAT and scored a 521 which is in the 99th percentile. I successfully completed a biology degree from the University of Pittsburgh with a 3.97 GPA. Not only have I clearly mastered all of the content tested on this exam, but I can equip others with memorization tools that may help make test day a little easier.

Organic Chemistry

I successfully completed organic chemistry 1 and 2 at the University of Pittsburgh with lab and received an A in both. And I spent the last three semesters teaching organic chemistry lab at the University of Pittsburgh.

So glad I did!

Philip is an amazing tutor! I actually wish I'd spoken with him prior to beginning my Mcat prep. He is very knowledgeable and genuinely cares about his students doing well. He answered every question I had and is able to provide more guidance than mentors (who took the Mcat ages ago) and other students (who are in the same boat as me). I would recommend him to anyone.
