I have been involved in science education for over 30 years and I have taught chemistry from the middle school level up to and including pre-med students preparing for the MCAT. There is no magic bullet to replace a students willingness to work and their desire to learn. I as a tutor, simply know how to ask a student the right questions and they are then able to find the answers themselves. Sometimes a student is overwhelmed and just needs help in organizing their thoughts. In addition to problem solving hints and techniques, I will show the student how to more efficiently and effectively read their text.

Great tutor!

Jack is a great tutor! I worked with him to prepare for the physical science section of the MCAT. Jack is very patient and great at explaining tough concepts like thermodynamics. Working with Jack helped me raise my physical science score by 4 points!
