Hello,

My name is Charles, and I have been a private tutor for nearly five years now in a variety of subjects. I graduated summa cum laude in undergrad from Gettysburg College, and I am currently a medical student at the University of Pennsylvania

I tutor because I love teaching. Seeing my students grasp new topics is exciting and rewarding for the both of us. My philosophy on teaching is to teach students how to learn and conceptualize material, rather than memorizing details. This allows the student to develop a repertoire of concepts that can be applied to information that they have never seen before.

Personality wise, I am social and outgoing. I try to make learning enjoyable, and I promise that our tutoring sessions will not be a drag. I don't waste time during sessions because I am very busy, and so are you. Every time we meet, we will have goals, and we will be making progress. In order to learn and do well on a test or in school, I believe you have to enjoy what you're learning, and I promise that I'll do my best to make that happen.

I do not have a cancellation policy, as I understand that life can be chaotic sometimes for either of us. However, I do ask that you let me know as soon as possible. Travel wise, it would be best if we could meet in center city, but we can make other arrangements.

I look forward to hearing from you. Contact me as soon as you can, and we can arrange to meet!

Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

Pre algebra contains the foundations of math that many students struggle to grasp through traditional education methods. I have been highly successful teaching these ideas to students by offering an approach that is relatable, and allows students to learn this new information by using concepts they already understand. By making the math less abstract and impersonal, I find that students quickly understand the ideas, and many even begin to enjoy it. Tutoring prealgebra is one of my favorites, and my enthusiasm is often contagious.

MCAT

I have been tutoring the 2015 MCAT for the past 5 years both independently and through professional test preparation companies. I have studied and reviewed this information to not only score well personally, but also to enable others to do the same. I am up to date on this test, and I know how to use your time effectively to score in the top percentiles.

Extremly knowledgeable, positive & a true teacher on the Mcat

I highly recommend Charles as a Mcat tutor. I am a formulation chemist that has been out of school for a few years . I decided previously that I want to go to medical school , but It has been challenging to get back into the swing of things (studying and taking practice tests). I decided to get a tutor and found Charles . He has been super positive, encouraging , always on time , sticks to facts and helpful. He has showed me how to think through tough Mcat critical thinking questions. He has tailored made a study schedule for me so that I am prepared enough to take the test. Also he is teaching me not get mentally frustrated through the study process but just to stay positive. I am learning to do extra problems in my trouble areas during study time. He teaches me simple strategies that has changed my perspective of the test, to being not extremely challenging as I once thought. Lastly , he is very good at quickly getting to the point of things , instead of long drawn out explanations that may get confusing. Once again, I highly recommend this tutor for the MCAT test.
