Rutgers University (Nursing)
"Hello, my name is Yayoi.
My background is a B.S.N. from the College of Nursing at Rutgers University in Nursing/Psychology. I have been teaching/tutoring various subjects in the sciences and mathematics for over 5 years at high school and collegiate levels. I have taught sciences for undergraduate and graduate programs at Rutgers University, Drexel College of Medicine, and The Commonwealth Medical College. I am patient and cater to my students' needs for understanding the concepts rather than focusing on just solving the problem.
My passion is to help students of all ages (mostly high school and college level) in mathematics and the sciences with as specific focus in the following subjects: biology, anatomy, physiology, chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, math subjects through calculus (including pre-calculus, trigonometry, and algebra), AP tests (biology, chemistry, physics), SATII subject tests (biology E/M, chemistry, physics, math level 1 & 2), SAT, ACT, DAT and MCAT (my passion).
I have previously been an MCAT, GRE, SAT, and ACT instructor for The Princeton Review where I was awarded the "Top MCAT Instructor Award" and the "Top Grad Instructor Award" for the East coast region. My goal is to break down complicated concepts for my students to ensure they have a deep understanding of the material. I look forward to working with each and every student and I take pride in mentoring and guiding students through these difficult courses and tests to help the students reach their goals."

Yayoi is an excellent MCAT tutor who has mastered all topics covered by the exam and has extensive knowledge about everything it tests and how. She breaks down complicated topics in physics and chemistry to the essential basics that connect them. If you wish to achieve a high score on the MCAT, then trust Yayoi to guide you on the marathon of studying necessary for this exam. She will help you identify and minimize your weaknesses and also reinforce and maximize your strengths. She makes it clear on the first day that most of the time spent with her is "passive" studying and that "active" studying is necessary to obtain the score increases you desire. A typical session includes in-depth review of any topic I feel I am struggling on, followed by reviewing any questions from the previous days "active" studying. Her review of topics are in-depth and she requires no books to recall any topics, she has everything memorized. There is no topic that Yayoi cannot help you with, she understands everything tested by the MCAT and helps you make sure there are no glaring weaknesses in your knowledge. I highly recommend her to any student who wishes to obtain a high score.
We had a session regarding an MCAT study plan, as well as content review and diagnostics. She was incredibly knowledgeable and gave me find useful resources. I am looking forward to more sessions with her.
Yayoi has helped me tremendously with my upper level Physics course. With her help I was able to get back on track and finish the course successfully. She explained the concepts that I had trouble with with great clarity and made it possible for me to understand the material I was working on. I found her background in the sciences to be very impressive as she cleared up any confusion I had with a certain topic.
Yayoi was extremely kind and very knowledgeable. She helped me tremendously to get unstuck from my Calculus rut. I was able to arrange a 3 hour session with her during my Columbus Day/brief fall recess. I sought help on a Wednesday and was able to confirm the appointment by Friday for a 3 hour session on the following Monday. Yayoi took a look at material I needed to cover and I told her exactly what I needed from her as a tutor. She did exactly that, which was spending time with me going through each topic, one by one, and explaining to me her stream-of-consciousness mathematical rationale. Though we could not go through everything, she successfully gave me the push I needed to get back on track with my own studies. Today, I successfully completed 4 quizzes spanning 2 chapters. I don't think I could've done it without Yayoi. I'm extremely satisfied with the quality of my tutoring session with her. I highly recommend.
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 am a master MCAT tutor with another tutoring company and am looking to expand my tutoring students through WyzAnt - I tutor all subjects of the MCAT (organic Chemistry, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Verbal and Psychology). I currently work with several students privately in MCAT and look forward to reaching more students!
I have been tutoring Organic Chemistry to Rutgers students over the past 3 years working with a tutoring company. I also have extensive experience working with students on MCAT Organic chemistry. I have a degree in Nursing and have taken all of the pre-med requirements.
