I'm Karis! MD-PhD grad at Wash U Medical School in St. Louis. I graduated magna cum laude in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Cornell, and obtained a Masters in Biology (summa) at Clark University in MA, before moving to St. Louis for graduate school. Since I was in high school, I have always a passion for mentoring and teaching peers and volunteered many times at after-school programs. In college, I was a TA for Biochemistry, Organic Chemistry, Calculus and tutored various levels of Math and Science to a wide range of age groups (7 years to 56 years). I also prepped high school students taking the SAT and ACT, and premed students taking the MCAT (SLU and Wash U students mostly, references available). My favorite thing about teaching is when students who want to learn and get better and put in the effort achieve their goal. My teaching style is mostly based a the demonstrator and facilitator. I like to challenge students get to the answer by asking them questions. I also enjoy active learning and discussion groups and encourage all my students to ALWAYS ask questions. There is no such thing as a dumb question. That's it for now! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me!

I have tutored all the ACT Math sections for over 5 years.

I was a Biochemistry major in undergrad and have tutored Chemistry and Pharmacology in undergraduate and in medical school for over 7 years.

I scored in the 99th percentile on my MCAT and have tutored privately and for Princeton and Kaplan for over 10 years. I have several premed students from SLU and Wash U who will serve as references with regards to my teaching style.

Great Experience

Karis was extremely helpful for me in learning a foundation of calculus and will continue working with me through calc 2 with more advanced calculus. He has a great eye for where errors were made and figuring out one's flaws in each area in need of improvement, then does well to fix them. Karis is very prepared with a great deal of material/problem sets and is very accommodating with a busy schedule. With Karis's help, I got a perfect score on my Calc I final exam.

Andrea, 16 lessons with Karis

Knowledgeable and great tutor

Karis helped me understand concepts in physics that I have been having trouble with since the beginning of the unit and was able to simplify complex equations into simple and easy to remember ones.

Lexi, 16 lessons with Karis

Flexible, very knowledgeable

Karis has been helping my son with a challenging high school accelerated chemistry course. He is very knowledgeable and prepared and explains the material thoroughly. Easy to work with and has been great about accommodating our difficult schedule whenever possible. Definitely recommended!
