Having spent the majority of my life in a classroom, both as an instructor and student, I am well aware of what it takes to be successful. My experiences as a tutor through Wyzant and other institutions have shown me how to successfully work with students in addressing their concerns about their studies ranging from math, general science, and a variety of standardized tests (i.e. PCAT, SAT, etc.). These experiences, as well as my time as a Pharmacy student, have given me the confidence that I will able to translate this academic success to future students interested in improving their skills and grades in any of the areas that I am certified to tutor.
My track record with students has been successful: 100% of my past students have improved their grades after only a few sessions. Working with a variety of students, from the novice to the more advanced, I am able to help explain difficult concepts and convey important test-taking strategies in such a way that students are able to improve their test taking skills, knowledge, and confidence quite rapidly.
Students: If you are interested in improving your skills in math and the sciences, looking to improve your abilities as a standardized test taker, or simply interested in getting a different, unique perspective on a wide variety of different subjects, please do not hesitate to email me and we can discuss the possibility of working together.

I am willing to negotiate if travel time is short. If cancelled within 5hrs of appointment I will have to charge 50% of fee.
My daughter has been so impressed with his aptitude and patience. Her confidence has increased and her comfort level with the most difficult problems has also. I'd recommend him without hesitation. He keeps appointments on time, is prepared and very serious about his work. He respects the student and the parent.
We hired Steven to tutor our son in Geometry over the summer. Steven was very patient and made a difficult subject so much easier to understand! The difference was incredible! He was always extremely polite, professional and knowledgeable. Our son learned more in the 6 week time frame that Steven tutored him, than he did all year (in a private school!) We received a detailed summary of what was covered after every session and he was always available in between times to answer any questions. We could not be more pleased!! WoW! Thanks Again Steven!
Steve is extremely patient and knowledgeable. Before being tutored by Steve I was averaging below a C. I had never taken Chemistry and was very skeptical about hiring someone due to my lack of knowledge on the subject. Steve made me very comfortable and took his time explaining my homework assignments, past quizzes and upcoming reviews. He also answered emails when we were not working together. He was very professional and punctual during every time we met. By the time the semester was coming to an end my confidence in test taking had increased tremendously. By the end of the term I was averaging a B+.
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.
After earning both a Bachelor’s in Biochemistry and a Master’s degree in Biology, I can say with confidence that I will be able to work with a variety of different students who are interested in improving their skills and knowledge in the life sciences. Whether its at the microscopic level, in relation to an organism, or entire ecosystems, we will be able to boost both your grade and understanding of any number of different areas of Biology.
My B.S. is in Biochemistry, with chemistry being of general interest and study since high school. Recently, I scored in the 97th percentile for my PCAT chemistry section, which includes both organic and inorganic chemistry.
Presently, I am nearing completion of my Master's work where I study the spatial expression pattern of Anoctamin-1, which is to say where this gene is expressed, in the zebrafish gastrointestinal tract using in situ hybridization. This project deals extensively with advanced topics in molecular biology and genetics. My experience in my previous job allowed me to work with many different transgenic mouse models. My coursework has also extensively prepared me for any kind of coursework relating to genetics.
I took the GRE several years ago so I'm very familiar to the testing format and how one can prepare more efficiently for the exam.
Though I have not taken the MCAT, I have taken the PCAT (91st %tile), which is the pharmacy entrance exam. These two exams cover nearly the same material, save for the MCAT including more physics and less organic chemistry.
I tutor this subject at SUNY Brockport.
I am currently in my 3rd professional year at a College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences and am more than qualified for tutoring a wide variety of students on pharmacy, pharmaceutics, and pharmacological topics.
I have a Regent's diploma from Irondequoit High School ('02), as well as degrees in Biochemistry (BS) and Biology (MS) from SUNY Geneseo and Brockport, respectively. I am more that qualified for all the subject matter required of this subject, as well as having sufficient knowledge of the Regents exam and how it is structured.
I've been playing, refereeing, and watching soccer since I was very young, which makes me very familiar with the rules, the strategy, and how to train for the sport.
Currently, I tutor many different standardized test subjects, including the PCAT, MCAT, GRE, SAT, ASVAB, and the ACT. I have worked with these students and helped them to efficiently prepare prepare for their admissions tests. As a pharmacy student, I am well familiar with the types of questions, particularly the math and science questions, that will be asked on this exam.
