About Adam

I am a resident at Jamaica Hospital. I completed my Doctor of Dental Surgery at NYU after receiving my bachelors in biology from Yeshiva University. I have years of tutoring experience dating back to my high school days, primarily in the sciences, but also in algebra, trig, writing/proofreading, and basic Spanish.

I am very enthusiastic about passing on my knowledge to help other succeed. Every student learns differently and requires the tutor to tailor his/her method to what works best for the student. I try to break down difficult concepts into its most basic elements, and to draw analogies to the students' areas of interest to make abstract concepts more tangible. I look forward to working with you to help you achieve your potential!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Anatomy

I completed a Head and Neck Anatomy course in the Fall of 2013 with a grade of A+. Towards the end of the semester, I tutored fellow classmates in preparation for our final, in addition to an international dentist studying for the American licensing exams.

Biology

I graduated college with a BA in biology. I am currently a dental student at NYU, and my curriculum includes advanced courses in cell biology, biochemistry, anatomy, physiology, neuroscience, histology, and genetics. I was an excellent biology student in high school, scoring a 5 on the AP exam and an A in the course.

Chemistry

I received grades of A- and A in general chemistry 1 and 2 respectively, and I scored in the 91st percentile on the chemistry section of the Dental Admission Test.

Dentistry

I took the DAT last summer with the following scores:

PAT 20, Math 21, Reading 22, Bio 23, Chem 22, Orgo 22, Total Science 22, Academic Average 22.

My overall score was in the 97th percentile. I currently attend NYU College of Dentistry, with expected graduation in Spring 2017

Genetics

I took a course in genetics this past semester and received an A-. As a biology major, many of my other courses have also touched on topics in genetics. The course included transmission genetics, molecular genetics, and population genetics.

Hebrew

I have grown up with Hebrew as a part of my life. I studied Hebrew in school from grades 1-9, and I read Hebrew texts on a daily basis. I scored 98 on the Hebrew regent exam. Additionally, I spent two years studying abroad in Israel, where I used Hebrew in my daily interactions with people.

Regents

I am a college graduate with a degree in biology, which includes coursework in math and chemistry. I excelled on all my Regents exams in high school and continued to do well in college. I got a 5 on AP biology, and scored in the 91st, 96th, and 97th percentiles on the chemistry, math, and biology sections of the Dental Admission Test respectively. My reviews on this website are from the satisfied father of a student whom I prepared for the chemistry Regent.

SAT Math

I scored a 700, 710, and 710 on the reading, math, and writing sections of the SAT respectively. I taught an SAT prep course over the summer between college and dental school at Gold Key Academics in Staten Island.

SAT Reading

I taught a class in SAT Reading and SAT Writing at Gold Key Academics in Staten Island over the summer of 2013. As part of my interview, I was required to take the reading and writing parts of an SAT and I scored a 700 and 710 respectively.
