Washington University in St. Louis (Chemistry, English)
I graduated from Washington University in St. Louis in May 2014 and have since moved to the Upper East Side. I double-majored in chemistry and English literature and worked as a general chemistry peer mentor for the past three years.
As a peer mentor, I met with 4-6 students in a group setting for two hours weekly to review chemistry concepts, work through problems, and prepare for their weekly quizzes. I enjoyed this work and would like to continue mentoring students in both in school subjects and in standardized test preparation. I hope to hear from you!

Tony helped me pull together concepts that were not expanded upon during my class lectures or in my trig text book. he was very quick to recognize and explain what the problems were asking and how to solve them.
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.
I have been playing guitar for 10 years alongside the saxophone.
I have taught guitar informally to friends and family, and I have experience working with others on strumming, chords, singing while playing, and soloing.
I took the MCAT in January of 2013 and scored a 39. My subsections scores are verbal: 12, physical sciences: 14, biological sciences: 13. I used Princeton Review, Kaplan, and Examkrakers books in my studying and have wide range of tools and personal experiences to draw from.
I am passionate about organic chemistry and continue to use its concepts in more advanced classes and in research. I took two semesters of organic chemistry at Washington University in St. Louis and received:
Organic chemistry I: A-
Organic chemistry II: A
I have been playing saxophone for 10 years, and have taken private lessons for 4 years. I auditioned for NYSSMA All-state in my senior year of high school and was accepted to play in the All-state symphonic band. At Washington University in St. Louis, I have continued playing saxophone in the jazz band and wind ensemble.
