About Mikie

Hi. I am available to tutor biology, anatomy, physiology, and microbiology online only for the time being. Please consult my availability schedule for best times. I'm fairly flexible.

I want to be crystal clear that I help students with lectures, concepts, homework, and test preparation. Please do not contact me for answers on timed exams; I am not in your class and it is an ethics violation.

Hi. I am available to tutor biology, anatomy, physiology, and microbiology online only for the time being. Please consult my availability schedule for best times. I'm fairly flexible.

I want to be crystal clear that I help students with lectures, concepts, homework, and test preparation. Please do not contact me for answers on timed exams; I am not in your class and it is an ethics violation.

I am not comfortable tutoring for MCAT, as I did not take it. However, I will tutor biological topics relevant to this exam like anatomy and physiology of systems. Similarly, I am best for helping with biological concepts for the OAT and DAT, and I have tutored for these exams in the past.

I have tutored the following courses: OAT/DAT Biology section of Natural Science section, High School Biology, Honors Biology, AP Biology, IB Biology, Biology I (Cellular and molecular, genetics, and systems anatomy/physiology), Microbiology, Animal Behavior, Human Anatomy, Human Medical Physiology, and Animal Physiology.

I am likely able to tutor other subjects like biochemistry, pharmacology, and genetics, but I require you to send me your course overview of topics in order for me to determine if I will fit well with you.

My personality is ISFJ. I can turn into a functional extrovert, though. Depending on the subject you request me to tutor, I may send you some of my practice exams I've used and/or written. I may also send you some helpful resources like my worksheets, my past whiteboard diagrams, pages from my notes IN FULL COLOR, etc.

What I love most about tutoring is getting the students really engaged in the subject, making them love it as much as I do. But I also love the appreciation I've received from my past students. I worked in a learning resource center for a couple of years at a college and it was hands down, my favorite job.

I'll adapt my style depending on what you think will work best for you. If you are a very visual-aural learner, you will like me. If you like testing whether you understand the concepts with practice questions, you will like me. I don't like wasting time and am precise about timing.

OAT TS: 350; OAT AA: 350; OAT Biology: 400

Biology: The bio courses I have taken are the following (I recommend you find the syllabuses online to see if my courses matches what your courses cover): Biology/Life Science (2004), AP Biology (2007), IB Biology (2008); UC Berkeley - General Biology (Biology 1A, Biology 1AL, and Biology 1B) Introductory Immunology (MCB 50), Biochemistry (MCB 102), General Microbiology (MCB C112), Human Genetics and Genomics (IB 164), Mammalogy (IB 174), Comparative Animal Physiology (IB 148), Vertebrate Zoology (IB 104), and Animal Behavior (IB C144); Saddleback College- Human Anatomy (Bio 11), Human Physiology (Bio 12), and Medical Lab Techniques (MLT 210) .

My strongest subject is medical physiology as this course held my main students in my old tutoring job.

Completed Medical Courses: Human Biochemistry and Nutrition, Neuroanatomy, Human Anatomy, Anatomy Physiology and Biochemistry, Immunology, Visual Function, Human Pathophysiology; Clinical Microbiology; and General Pharmacology

I have brought students up from D's to A's... and I'm not going to take all the credit. This is a team effort, after all. You have the attitude to WANT to excel!

Feel free to ask me for testimonials from my past students/clients and ask serious inquiries about the subjects in which you need help. I prefer to tutor online if you live outside a 5 mile radius due to needing to travel by subways and/or buses, and I use online tutoring rather effectively.

My availability changes depending on my tutoring schedule. I'm pretty flexible if you tell me a few days in advanced.

I look forward to reading from you soon.

Knowledgeable

I needed a tutor session in supremely short notice after my original tutor did not show up for a session and Mikie was available within minutes! He is super knowledgeable.

Understanding and Competent Tutor

Mikie taught me Animal Physiology. During the time he has taught me, my understand of the subject has greatly improved. Not only does he explain each concept clearly, but he also takes the time to diagram everything. When I don't understand, I stop him and we go over the topic again. In order to test my understanding, Mikie sometimes asks me questions during our lesson, so I can see how I am doing. I think Mikie is an excellent tutor and has done a great job in order to engage the student in the lesson and teach him the subject material.
