After graduated Brooklyn College (Macaulay Honors Program) with two bachelor degrees in biology (BS w/ honors) and chemistry (BA), I am currently a medical student at NYU School of Medicine. I've tutored a variety of subjects throughout college and have truly enjoyed the teaching experience. Effectively explaining material to fellow students was how I confirmed my own understanding of course material. By continually explaining topics to either peers or students I tutor, I've learned how to give concise, direct and easy to follow explanations. I believe that a thorough understanding of processes, significance and applications of processes builds a strong framework on a topic. I try to avoid bulk memorization of random facts when possible. Someone with a complete rounded understanding of a topic will be less intimidated by a complex problem.

In math, many seemingly complex problems can be understood by applying a few fundamental ideas alongside formulas. These fundamentals act as the foundation that the framework is built upon. Chemistry also requires a thorough understanding of fundamental ideas and uses them to explain how molecules behave on a small scale. General chemistry covers a large variety of topics, but problems tend to test one's understanding of specific concepts and molecular behaviors. As long as the necessary ideas are understood, the problems are manageable. Physics requires the application of equations to paint a complete picture of the macroscopic world around us. Someone who understands physics could look around a room and understand how the light in the room behaves and all the forces involved when they move an object on their desk. Biology is similar to understanding how a machine works. Biological systems have several moving parts with coordinated motions that achieve specific goals or purposes. It is always important to ask "why?" in biology. The sciences on the MCAT are not excessively detail oriented and focuses on the understanding of concepts. My learning and teaching approach is very effective for preparing for the MCAT. The MCAT can ask a large variety of possible questions. Knowing how to apply concepts and formulas allows test takers to tackle seemingly difficult and foreign problems.

I have several years of tutoring experience, which includes teaching a few dyslexic students in math and chemistry. I have tutored many different students across many different grade levels. In high school, I group tutored pre-calculus and calculus. In college, I expanded my tutoring biology and general chemistry in one-on-one session. Across all subjects, every student I've consistently tutored has had drastic improvements in their grades. For instance, when started tutoring one student she had a 65 in chemistry and test grades in the 40s. In one marking period, my student went from a 65 to an 85 in chemistry. Her largest weakness was in terminology, so I continually asked for definitions and incorporated the terms into our content reviews. I graduated with a 3.85 overall and science GPA and scored a 38 (BS-14 PS-14 VR-10) on my MCAT. I've received an A or A+ in every class I'm offering to tutor. The main comments students and parents have given me on my performance is that I'm very patient and am doing a great job because the student is able to grasp the material.

Biology,

Biology

I have a BS with honors in Biology and scored a 14 (99th Percentile) on my biological sciences section on the MCAT. I have had success tutoring peers in general biology. I have my students properly and fully explain "how things work" and the significance to see if they grasp the material and concepts.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

I have a bachelors degree in chemistry from Brooklyn College. I received A's in my general chemistry courses and scored a 14 on the Physical Sciences section on my MCAT. I currently tutor a dyslexic student in high school chemistry. I know how to breakdown chemistry problems and explain topics so that the student doesn't feel overwhelmed and can systematically tackle problems. Additionally, I've tutored college level general chemistry for multiple people. All the students I've consistently tutored in chemistry have seen drastic improvements in their grades and their understanding of the material.
Physics,

Physics

I received A's in both General Physics 1 and 2. After studying for the MCAT and scoring in the 99th percentile on my physical sciences, I built a very strong conceptual understanding of the material. When tutoring physics I try to focus on drawing the diagrams correctly and using the appropriate formulas because those are often the trickiest parts of the problem.

MCAT

I received a 38 on my MCAT (BS-14 PS-14 VR-10) and have previous experience tutoring peers for the MCAT exam. I have a bachelor's degree in both chemistry and biology. My tutoring style focuses on concepts rather than just memorization of details. I have familiarized myself with several different popular MCAT review materials, including Kaplan, Examkrackers, Berkeley Review, Princeton Review and Princeton Review Hyperlearning.

I have been helping students prepare for the NYS Regents exams for the past several years. I usually tutor for the chemistry, physics, living environment, integrated algebra, geometry and trigonometry/algebra 2 regents exams. I have my bachelors in chemistry and biology and have taken 2 semesters of college level physics. I received perfect scores on all my math regents and am competent with all mathematics up through calculus 2. I am very familiar with the regents testing style and format. When tutoring for the regents exams, I make sure to teach at the "regents" level and focus on key concepts the students are expected to know.
