About Persey

My name is Persey, a graduate with Physiology and Neurobiology degrees at the University of Maryland-College Park. I acquired many experiences tutoring throughout my college years. As a chemistry and physics tutor, I provided students with the most efficient and simple ways of doing calculations by providing them with various tricks. I am very flexible and can adjust to cater for the student needs. Additionally, I provided students with how to properly manage their time during chemistry and physics exams. I also gained experience as a tutor and teaching assistant of biology during my years at University of Maryland. As a teaching assistant, I was able to improve many students' appreciation of science throughout the course. Most of the students I taught had no passion for science and took the course as a prerequisite for their various majors; as a result, I mostly use analogies to enable them to better comprehend the material. My work as a research Lab Assistant/Technician in developmental evolution lab also enabled me to have some hands-on experience in the field. Math has simply been my passion going back to my high school years. I was the only high school graduate in my class to take both Calculus AB and BC. I also took Calculus, Statistics, Algebra, etc during my years in college and did relatively well in them. I can use my experiences to help students in need of ACT science/math prep as well. Additionally, I have taught 6th, 7th and 8th graders in science and math as an intern/mentor at Capitol Hill, Congress Heights and Trinidad center city public school. I am currently teaching high school/middle school students at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research for a summer STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) program.

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.


I tutored multiple ADD students during my years in college. Additionally, my lab supervisor had ADD and some of my peers had ADD as well. So I believe I have enough experience to work with ADD students.


I had A in evolution biology, genetics, upper level evolution biology, ecology biology, mammalian physiology, anatomy and physiology and neurophysiology while in college.Furthermore, I tutored in almost all these classes and provided students with the necessary materials to be successful. I also took AP Biology when I was in high school


I had A in organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry I and 2 and biochemistry while in college. I also had the opportunity to mentor students in some of these classes. I gained tremendous amount of experience as a result of my teaching/mentoring and earned many recommendations from students in the process.


I took both the basic level genetics and upper level genetics in my college years and had A in both classes. I also tutored students in genetics as well. Additionally, I am currently studying genetics in preparation for my MCAT exams.


I am a graduate with Physiology and Neurobiology degrees from the University of Maryland-College Park. I recently took my MCAT 2 weeks ago. My tutoring experiences enabled me to do relatively well on the physics, chemistry and biology. I scored well on my practice test in the science prior to taking the real MCAT. I could be able to use that experience to benefit any test taker especially in the science


I had A in physics 1 and 2 (including labs) while in college. Furthermore, I tutored in both classes and achieved greater student success and appreciation/recommendation.


This includes review of natural number arithmetic, new types of numbers such as integers, fractions, decimals and negative numbers, factorization of natural numbers, properties of operations such as associativity and distributivity, simple (integer) roots and powers, rules of evaluation of expressions, such as operator precedence and use of parentheses, basics of equations including rules for invariant manipulation of equations and understanding of variable manipulation.

Study Skills

I was a teaching assistant for a freshman transition course at University of Maryland - College Park. My job was to teach the incoming students how to study efficiently and how to properly manage their time. I also taught them various tricks on how to keep themselves motivated even in the midst of adversity.
