About Alicia


Bio

I began to develop a passion for teaching and education when I taught writing, chemistry, and MCAT preparation as a college student. Since graduating medical school, I have been building test prep products for the MCAT, DAT, and USMLE exams. In my free time, I have done a lot of educational outreach including tutoring and teaching in high school math, science, and writing/communication. Currently, I am working on my own products, but I have a limited amount of time to offer to one-on-one...

I began to develop a passion for teaching and education when I taught writing, chemistry, and MCAT preparation as a college student. Since graduating medical school, I have been building test prep products for the MCAT, DAT, and USMLE exams. In my free time, I have done a lot of educational outreach including tutoring and teaching in high school math, science, and writing/communication. Currently, I am working on my own products, but I have a limited amount of time to offer to one-on-one tutoring to select students. I hope that Wyzant will be a good platform for making connections.

About teaching math: I have taught/tutored both high school and college math and developed a product to prepare students for the math section of the dental admissions test (DAT). I am happy to help students with basic math and algebra as well as more complicated math, such as probability and statistics. I have found that different students conceptualize math differently and am able to adapt my explanations to meet students' needs. Recently, my score on the math section of the GRE was 169/170.

About teaching reading comprehension: I used to think reading comprehension tests were hard, as I would get overwhelmed by trying to understand every detail. I eventually learned how to better dissect the information and, for instance, quite easily earned a perfect RC score on my GRE exam. I can also help you better focus in on information during these tests.

About teaching MCAT: I scored in the 99th percentile on my MCAT and taught for Kaplan while in college. After medical school, I led the development of UWorld's MCAT Q-bank. I have very strong skills across the sciences and in reading comprehension as well and have my RC passages that I can share with my students.

About science tutoring: I have extensively studied chemistry and biology (college GPA in biochemistry was 3.98) and have developed many science-based tutorials/images/tests as part of my work in test prep. I am eager to help students in high school and college chemistry, including general, organic, and analytical chemistry, as well as introductory physics. I can also help students in high school and college biology, including more advanced genetics and physiology courses. I am passionate about these subjects and always want to help students to understand as opposed to memorizing information.

About writing help: I started to assist students with their writing when I participated in a writing across the curriculum program in college. I use the same skills in product development, as I evaluate and high-level edit most of the work that is submitted to me by content developers (including PhDs and MDs). I can help with science writing but also papers written in other courses. In all these disciplines, the same components of good writing exist - for me, these include strong arguments, as well as clarity and organization (HUGE), in addition to finer language and tone considerations.

I would love to meet with motivated students who need extra help in school or test prep. Please don't hesitate to message me to discuss this further.
