About Joseph


Bio

On my road to medical school I have had many experiences tutoring in the sciences including biology and chemistry as well preparing students for standardized exams like the MCAT. As a high school student I was a peer tutor in many math courses, earth science, biology and chemistry. At Canisius College I was a very active tutor averaging 5-10 hours a week in all areas of biology and general chemistry for 4 years. I was also a teaching assistant in these disciplines.

On my road to medical school I have had many experiences tutoring in the sciences including biology and chemistry as well preparing students for standardized exams like the MCAT. As a high school student I was a peer tutor in many math courses, earth science, biology and chemistry. At Canisius College I was a very active tutor averaging 5-10 hours a week in all areas of biology and general chemistry for 4 years. I was also a teaching assistant in these disciplines. During the summers I would also tutor precalculus to high school students and was a counselor in various summer science camps for elementary to middle school aged students.

My passion for medicine is intertwined with my passion for teaching. The ability to help a student not only learn material for the upcoming test, but more importantly, help the student understand him/herself and how they learn is my greatest asset. My goal for any student would be to make my services no longer needed over the course of time as the student learns what is most effective for their learning styles. I live for the "ah-ha" moment a student has when putting together a difficult concept through Socratic teaching methods instead of simply restating information that has already been presented and not understood. Rooting myself in the basics and making learning fun are two staples in my tutoring style. I look forward to helping everyone and anyone as best I can.

In the subjects of general chemistry, biology and physics I carried a 3.98 GPA at Canisius College. In medical school I have completed courses in biochemistry, anatomy and many other biomedical courses achieving honors in the vast majority of subjects. I have tutored many students most notably in general chemistry and biology who have had failing grades after the first round of exams in the semester and have finished with passing averages or better. In studying for the MCAT exam I developed mastery of these subjects as well as test taking skills to save time and focus thinking which will prove to be invaluable for results on test day.

I thank you for reading my profile and encourage anyone looking to make these difficult subjects demystified with fun explanations and helpful tips to contact me to set up a session. Thank you!

Anatomy

In medical school, I completed my medical anatomy course with above satisfactory scores and truly enjoy teaching the many inter- workings of the human body. I have an appreciation for different learning styles whether a student is visual, auditory or hands on I have techniques to help burn anatomy into your brain and hope to have some fun in the process.

MCAT

MCAT

I am currently a medical student at university at buffalo school of medicine. I received a 31 on my MCAT and was a peer tutor for students taking the MCAT before and after I took my exam. I created useful pneumonics and time saving tricks to answering MCAT style questions and feel I could help students currently preparing for this exam.

So helpful

Joe was amazing. He helped my niece get ready for her exams because she was struggling. After just a few sessions, she gained confidence, and understood the material. She is a better student because of him. We are so grateful for all of his help. Thank you Joe.
