About Wissam

I am a First-Year Medical student at New Jersey Medical School in Newark. I want to help other students who are on the path to health care with understanding the required sciences and help them further excel, particularly with Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry. For two years prior to starting medical school, I completed the Post-Bacc program and all the required sciences for medical school with a 4.0, including Physics, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biology, and Biochemistry. I took the MCAT in July 2016 and scored 126 on the Bio section and 130 on the Chemistry/Physics portion. Prior to entering the program, I graduated magna cum laude with a Finance degree and worked in the field for around 5 years. During my entire journey, I have always made myself available to tutoring because it is something that I genuinely enjoyed. Many students might be struggling with a particular subject and at times feel helpless, but I have always believed that anything can be understood and learnt.

Math has always been my strongest subject and I have tutored SAT math, Algebra I and II, and Calculus. Now, with my journey as a Post Bacc. student, I have been able to teach all of the pre-med sciences. Organic Chemistry in particular, which is a subject known for its difficulty, is a science I find true enjoyment teaching and seeing the results when my student has gained the confidence he/she needed to master the subject.

My degree in Finance was math intensive, where I studied Business Calculus, statistics, and probability. My SAT scores in the Math section (taken in 2003) was a 670. Also, during the Post Bacc. program, I earned an A in my Calculus I class.
As far as sciences are concerned, I have recently completed all the pre-med sciences required for medical school applications which include Physics, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biology, and Biochemistry, all with an A grade. I am also a General Chemistry Lab and Organic Chemistry Lab TA at Rutgers University.

I have been a tutor for over a decade, and currently my world is full of science and math on a daily basis. I wish to show my students that subjects that may seem difficult, or have a reputation of difficulty can be mastered and conquered with the right explanations.

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.

Chemistry

I am a Teacher's Assistant at Rutgers University for Gen. Chem Lab I & II and Organic Chemistry Lab.

Organic Chemistry

I have recently completed Organic Chemistry I & II with a 4.0 gpa. I have also been asked to return this Fall as an organic chemistry Lab TA, and finally i work in a research lab group at a medical school (NJMS) as a research assistant where we special on preliminary drug molecule discovery utilizing organic chemistry synthesis.

Sam was able to pinpoint the source of my Orgo difficulties and tailored his strategies to fit my specific academic needs. Not only does he know the material inside out; he knows the perfect way to make it understandable.
