About Akiva

For the past two years I have been taking pre-dental science prerequisites at Towson University. I love science and this passion was a large factor in my decision to become a dentist. I have excelled in my course work and have acquired a thorough knowledge of biology, anatomy and physiology, chemistry, and organic chemistry. In September, 2014, I took the Dental Admissions Test, a test that covers a broad range of scientific information. I achieved a perfect score in Biology and placed in the 99th percentile in chemistry, and 90th percentile in organic chemistry. I hope to start dental school in September, 2015 and until then I would like to tutor high school or college students.

While in college, I tutored fellow students in anatomy and biology. I spent many hours preparing for each session; writing up concise, and easy to understand review packets for each chapter. I also created power point slides and flash cards as study aids for students. All my students gained at least two letter grades after studying with me for about a month. I am patient, attentive, and caring, and I can easily discern in which subject areas a student needs more help. This allows me to custom tailor my teaching techniques to each student’s specific needs. Over the past two years, I have come to realize how much I enjoy seeing my students succeed and wish to continue helping the next generation gain an appreciation for science as I have.

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.

Organic Chemistry

I completed Organic Chemistry I and II at Towson University in the Fall 2013 semester and passed both courses with A's. I have since then studied the subject rigorously for the Dental Admissions Test and achieved a 25 (98th percentile) in the Organic Chemistry section. I have also tutored this subject with multiple students, all of whom have benefited significantly from my help.
