Hello! I graduated cum laude from Columbia University with a degree in Biology, and I am currently working as a research associate and lab technician while I apply to medical school. As a student at Columbia, I often studied in groups with my peers.

Hello! I graduated cum laude from Columbia University with a degree in Biology, and I am currently working as a research associate and lab technician while I apply to medical school. As a student at Columbia, I often studied in groups with my peers. In this setting, I found that I frequently took on a teaching role, explaining difficult concepts to my friends and other members of my study groups. I decided to become a peer tutor at Columbia, and I tutored basic math and science for students who needed extra help. I also informally tutored and edited papers for friends. As a tutor, I focus on adapting my teaching methods to individual learning styles and on making lesson plans that are tailored to each student’s strengths and weaknesses. I have seen that students enjoy their classes more when they are better able to understand the subject material, and I hope that, through tutoring, I can pass my love of science onto others.

From my courses at Columbia, I am best able to tutor biology, organic chemistry, psychology, general chemistry, physics, and more advanced biology courses such as biochemistry, physiology, virology, and developmental biology. I received A/A- in all of my college-level biology, psychology, general chemistry, and organic chemistry courses. I am also able to tutor high school math courses such as algebra and geometry.

I scored a 523 (99th percentile) on the MCAT exam. Having recently taken the updated version of the exam, I am very familiar with the new format, and I am confident that I can help students to review academic material, choose the best prep materials, create a long-term study plan, and develop test-taking strategies.

I am also happy to tutor for other standardized tests including ACT, SAT, SAT II, and AP exams. I scored a 35 on the ACT, 2240 on the SAT, 780 on SAT II Physics, 800 on SAT II Math, and 5 on all of my AP tests. I self-studied for all of these exams using prep books and online resources, so I am comfortable tutoring students who are not enrolled in a prep class.

Brooke is an amazing tutor!

She is very patient and explains the concepts well! My grades in college level biology became much better. Moreover, she is just a very nice person, willing to help.
