About Michael

I am currently attending Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio. I will be graduating this coming May with my M.D. and be pursuing a residency in Diagnostic Radiology.

For my undergraduate degree, I earned a Bachelor's of Science in Biology and Chemistry from Le Moyne College, a small Jesuit College in Syracuse, NY. During my time at Le Moyne I tutored fellow college classmates for two years in General Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, and Statistics for the Academic Support Center on campus.

I have always found it very fulfilling to help others understand these complex and arduous subjects. While I do have the responsibilities of medical school to still balance, I am available most nights of the week, along with days/nights on weekends. I am willing to meet at any public location or house for the tutoring session. I greatly look forward to helping anyone with whatever questions he or she may have so that they may succeed in the subject at hand.

I have 9 publications currently in various Neurosurgical peer-reviewed journals, with over 15 oral and poster presentations at national meetings. I received a 37T on the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT), a 269 on the Step 1 USMLE board examination, and a 278 on the Step 2 USMLE, each above the 97th percentile.

My idea of a good education is to not learn solely for the test. While tests are critical to move on in the academic world we live, I feel that proper learning of a subject will allow people to hark back on the knowledge for years to come. I will consistently push you to strive for more understanding, and always be willing and able to provide assistance whenever needed. Thank you for this opportunity, and I look forward to working with you.

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.

Genetics

I am currently a 4th year medical student, and have a bachelor's of science in biology and chemistry. I also have 2 years experience tutoring biology, chemistry and statistics, with multiple sub-subjects within those fields. I have taken extensive coursework in genetics, pharmacology and nutrition for these degrees I have earned.

Trust me, you want to learn from the best.

I prefer learning from someone who knows what to do to get results. Perks of having Michael as your tutor : Personalized study plan. Knowledgeable, encouraging, and patient tutor. Highlights the most tested concepts on exams. Incorporates question from various question banks into tutoring sessions. Integrates concepts from different disciplines (which is what the USMLE likes to test you on).
