About Richard


Bio

Hi! My name is Richard and I am currently a third year medical student in NJ. I graduated cum laude from Quinnipiac University with a B.S. in Biomedical Sciences and a minor in Psychology. Throughout my undergraduate and medical school courses, I have been able to figure out test taking strategies and studying tips that have allowed students to not become overwhelmed, while at the same time synthesize as much information as possible by repetition rather than memorization.

Hi! My name is Richard and I am currently a third year medical student in NJ. I graduated cum laude from Quinnipiac University with a B.S. in Biomedical Sciences and a minor in Psychology. Throughout my undergraduate and medical school courses, I have been able to figure out test taking strategies and studying tips that have allowed students to not become overwhelmed, while at the same time synthesize as much information as possible by repetition rather than memorization.

My tutoring experience has focused on kindergarteners, college students within any health science / biology major, and now medical students in their first and second year prepping for the COMLEX / USMLE. With kindergarteners, I had the pleasure of working at a local elementary school and assisting teachers with 5-10 kindergarten students at one time. As an anatomy and physiology tutor at Quinnipiac, I held weekly review sessions for 50-75 students to assist with any material learned throughout the week. Currently at my medical school, I work both 1 on 1 and with groups in variety of courses including pathology, physiology, microbiology, anatomy, and biochemistry.

My tutoring style focuses on using visuals and diagrams rather than outlines as I have learned that the best way to grab my students' attention and allow them to retain information in the long run comes from being able to attach a visual detail to their memory! From high school to medical school courses, the workload always seems to be too much to handle, and using quick mnemonics and shortcuts in order to grab big picture details to orient the students into a topic and then dive deeper into the subject has seemed to work.

I am a tutor that you can rely on to learn material in a way that focuses solely on student needs. I believe a great tutor is one that adapts to the needs of the learner, and I will keep that mentality throughout each tutoring session. Feel free to reach out to me at any time or schedule a lesson!

Biochemistry

As a third-year medical student who has gone through various courses of biochemistry at both an undergraduate and medical school level, I have a vast amount of knowledge and ways of approaching this difficult topic. My approach is to understand the topic as a whole, and then to dive deeper into the little details that tend to come up on standardized exams and in school exams. Looking forward to helping you on your journey!

Test Preparation

MCAT,

MCAT

As a third year medical student who recently just finished board exams, I can easily relate to the struggles faced with the MCAT and the difficulty that comes with trying to improve your score. The same techniques I used to boost my score on the MCAT, specifically the Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living System section (131), is what ultimately allowed for me to have a great foundation of anatomy and physiology for medical school. I enjoy going through questions sentence by sentence and allow students to let me know what their approach is and what their understanding of the sentence is. The MCAT seems like an end all be all exam, but with the right tips and tricks, I believe anything is possible to get as close to a 132 on each section as possible!
USMLE

USMLE

As a third year medical student who recently just finished both the USMLE STEP 1 and COMLEX LEVEL 1, I would love to be able to share my study strategies to allow students to achieve success! My tutoring strategy focuses heavily on question interpretation rather than concept gaps, as I believe most medical students have a great foundation of knowledge for these board exams; however, being able to answer questions correctly may take a different approach. I enjoy going through questions sentence by sentence and allow students to let me know what their approach is and what their understanding of the sentence is. My philosophy with both of these exams is that every sentence matters, even if it does not seem like it. Once students can achieve that level of understanding with question interpretation, concept gaps can be focused on to solidify topics along the way!

Amazing tutor!

Richard is amazing! I worked with Richard for about 5 weeks before my step 1 and in that time I saw an improvement in my score of more than 50 points. By the time of my test date Richard had me feeling confident and ready for the challenges of step.

Amazing tutor for STEP 1

Richard was a great tutor for STEP 1! He was very flexible with times and filling in different content gaps. We would go over high yield topics and also focus on question strategies for exam day. He brought up my scores on practice exams over 30 points in 4 weeks. I would recommend him to any student needing more confidence during STEP studying!

Great Tutor!

Richard is a very professional, knowledgeable and motivating tutor. He is able to explain concepts clearly as well as help with question interpretation and test taking strategy. My confidence in my abilities to approach questions has already improved after a lesson with Richard. I look forward to seeing my scores improve and continue working with him to build a strong foundation.
