About Gopal

As a summa cum laude honors graduate and now a first year medical student, I understand the value of hard work. My love for teaching grew from my experiences as a mathematics learning assistant at a JEI Learning Center. Nothing proves more rewarding to me than watching a struggling student succeed and discover a love of learning.

My tutoring focus is in both mathematics and the biological sciences -specifically in microbiology, biochemistry, genetics, physiology, evolution and general biology. These disciplines are essential coursework for students looking to major in a life science. If you are looking for a science tutor, you will be well served by one with an extensive scientific background and a mature understanding of the subject matter. I have mastered these courses not only as a student, but also as an MCAT test taker and as a successful medical school applicant!

My preferred method of teaching involves emphasizing conceptual learning. I find that if my clients understand concepts, they will more confidently tackle difficult problems and more easily recall these concepts when they revisit the given topic at a later date. I often have the student attempt to "teach" me their understanding of the given matter so that I can assess how well the student grasps the given material.

I tutor only in a public setting such as at a local library or bookstore. I have a fairly flexible schedule and will likely be able to accommodate your needs. Cancellation requires 24 hours notice. If you are interested in scheduling a tutoring session, please feel free to send me a message and together we will take your learning to the next level!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

I have taken and excelled in Algebra I during grade school, and have since taken Algebra II, Geometry, the SATs, College level Calculus and Statistics. I tutor Algebra I as a tutor at a local JEI Learning Center.

Genetics

I have taken two courses in college that include a semester of Genetics and another semester of Developmental Genetics. I have also taken courses that fall in the Genetics Department at Rutgers, such as General Microbiology. I have received top grades in all courses including a B+ in genetics, A in Developmental Genetics, A in General Microbiology, and a score in the 95th percentile for the Biology MCAT subsection, which requires lots of Genetics knowledge.

MCAT

I have taken in depth courses in Chemistry, Microbiology, Genetics, Psychology, Biochemistry, and Physiology and have received stellar grades in all courses. I used this background to independently prepare for the MCAT, for which I have received a score in the 95th percentile. My mature understanding of the test content and my ability to diagnose poor test-taking strategies such as issues with time management or anxiety, will prove to be an asset for students looking to tackle the MCAT.
