About Zehra


Bio

What I learned in medical school is that I am one of the few people who prefers coursework to clinical work. As rewarding as seeing patients is, I enjoy studying even more, especially in a group setting. Above all, I love helping others learn. There's so many different ways to learn the same material, and it's my mission to find the way that clicks for each individual.

What I learned in medical school is that I am one of the few people who prefers coursework to clinical work. As rewarding as seeing patients is, I enjoy studying even more, especially in a group setting. Above all, I love helping others learn. There's so many different ways to learn the same material, and it's my mission to find the way that clicks for each individual.
My experience as a private tutor, primarily in high school chemistry, has led me to believe that a good grasp of most sciences starts with a solid foundation in fundamentals, so it's helpful to do some basic review before tackling more detailed subjects in the same area. People describe my tutoring style as heavy on positive reinforcement. In many ways, learning why you got something wrong is much more useful than getting it right. You never forget it. Above all, I value diligence on the student's part, even more than intelligence.

I graduated cum laude with a bachelor's in biochemistry, and have tutored in chemistry and biology privately. After covering medical courses in anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, biochemistry, and genetics, I feel comfortable tutoring those subjects at an undergraduate level, especially for students looking towards a career in the medical field.

My MCAT score was a 37 (Old version, I actually field tested a biochemistry section) which corresponds to the 98th percentile or around a 519-520. Since then, I've reviewed newer material helping another student for the upcoming cycle.
As someone who's been through the application process, I can empathize deeply with the struggle.

Feel free to contact me with any specific areas you'd like to focus on, and I'll get back as soon as possible. My schedule is pretty flexible, especially online.

Easy to understand

This was probably the first time I understood what I was doing in a chem lab. She made if easy for me to understand and did everything step by step to make sure I understood what I was doing.

Very great and patient tutor!

She was very knowledgeable and helped me with Enzyme Kinetics in Biochemistry. She broke down difficult concepts for me in an understandable way. Great tutor! Thank you Zehra!

Layla, 5 lessons with Zehra

Nice and knowledgeable

We went over some advanced biology for a class at Berkeley and she was very nice and knowledgeable. I enjoyed our session and I would definitely recommend Zehra for biology tutoring.

Alireza, 7 lessons with Zehra

Knowledgeable and patient tutor!

We went over Biochemistry practice problem during our lesson and Zehra was knowledgeable, patient, and kind. The topics included, ICE tables, pka, amino acids, and problems related to PI.

Zehra is so intelligent and nice. Super helpful in explaining biochemistry concepts! I had many confusions on concepts and she was easily able to elaborate on them.
