About Ali

Howdy! I am a Physician with a broad education and have experience teaching Medical Students and Residents. I enjoyed this experience since it really helps break up the mundane routine of clinical duties. I am looking forward to helping students from varied backgrounds, not just medicine, succeed in their chosen field!

I would not be where I am today without the advice of people with far more experience than me. Now, I would also like to pay that forward and am happy to discuss career plans/goals and how to achieve them. Very flexible hours and teaching methods!

My SAT math score was 790/800. I personally like to understand the general principles first, and then apply them to directed problem solving. Since the SAT recycles math problems/concepts, this strategy followed by sufficient practice should help you earn the score you want!

My undergraduate degree is in Neurobiology and Physiology. In medical school we also covered sciences such as biochemistry, genetics, and cell biology along with the usual pharmacology/anatomy etc. Using my unique perspective of working with the human body every day, I like to put the basic science concepts into an easy to understand context.

My MCAT score was 39. Over the years I have helped colleagues and students make generalized MCAT study plans and/or focus on specific weaknesses. Also happy to help with general medical school applications and resume building!

Students often feel overwhelmed with the material. Breaking everything down into simple, actionable steps in a 1, 2, 3.... is one of the ways a daunting task becomes manageable, ranging from one specific problem to larger goals such as College/Medical school applications. Looking forward to hearing from you!

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 scored a 39 on the MCAT which opened up opportunities in medical school. I have informally tutored for the science sections and also helped colleagues organize study plans for this test. Tutoring strategies include identifying weak subject areas, learning question/answer patterns, and increasing test taking speed.
