About Matthew

I am a future medical student who scored in the 99th percentile on the MCAT, completed a Masters degree in Biochemistry, and has 2 scientific publications to my name.

I am currently in a gap year to rest my brain and prepare for the next step. I am tutoring in this time and looking for students willing to learn. My style of tutoring focuses on building a firm foundation of knowledge in the subject at hand, followed by pointed study of the topics the student is having greatest difficulty with. In short, I believe students should be aware of their strengths and weaknesses, and should focus their efforts on smoothing out their weaknesses.

I have the most experience tutoring Organic Chemistry and nearly every subject-area of Biology (including: Microbiology, Genetics, Physiology, Ecology, Embryology, and more), and have gone through courses which involved a great deal of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

I am open to all students--Pre-med, Pre-vet, Pre-dent, Pre-pharm, and any others who find themselves studying the life sciences at the college level.

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 have taken multiple courses on general genetics, human genetics, and cell bio (which at my university was all about genetic regulation). Also, in my masters program, genetics was a frequent topic of discussion. And finally, one of my research publications (currently in press) is about genetic regulation of the developing reproductive system during embryogenesis.

Organic Chemistry

I took a year of organic chemistry at PSU, and the following year I taught a weekly workshop walking new students through the principles of organic chemistry. Since then, I have tutored students in the Portland area and my most frequent subject has been organic chemistry.

If you're a premed student like I am, or belong to one of the other pre-professional routes, then look no further. After our first meeting yesterday (12/04/2016), I'm convinced of his abilities and look forward to working with him over the course of my junior and senior years. I'm doing a condensed review of OChem 1, in preparation for OChem 2 this coming Winter term, and without reference he was
