Bio

I have a unique undergraduate experience as a nursing/pre-med. student. I worked for 7 years as an RN while studying the physical/biomedical sciences. My insight into the clinical setting is extensive and I've been able to integrate the scientific theories learned from my studies accordingly. I have a passion for disseminating the knowledge I have with others, whether peers, colleagues, or students. I have several years of experience as a coach/mentor in the clinical context and I've spent a...

I have a unique undergraduate experience as a nursing/pre-med. student. I worked for 7 years as an RN while studying the physical/biomedical sciences. My insight into the clinical setting is extensive and I've been able to integrate the scientific theories learned from my studies accordingly. I have a passion for disseminating the knowledge I have with others, whether peers, colleagues, or students. I have several years of experience as a coach/mentor in the clinical context and I've spent a few years tutoring pre-med. students on MCAT topics.

My process for studying and teaching is unique in that I explore deeply the theoretical infrastructures of each scientific field, discuss pertinent historical contexts, engage in philosophical dialogue concerning the respective subject matter, then apply practically the knowledge gained. I believe that visualization of the material is critical so drawing out models, working out the mathematics (WITHOUT a calculator), and otherwise illustrating a student's thought process in general is integral to the learning process. (For ex., depicting molecular orbital-resonance symmetries in an aromatic compound explicitly) I love witnessing the moment when a student genuinely grasps and understands a difficult concept in science. I want to help all students achieve their professional goals so they can go on to serve humanity and make this world a better place.

I have taken undergraduate-level courses in general chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, and cellular/molecular biology. Further, I constantly engage in studying the literature available in the vast databases of information.

I scored in the 92-%tile overall on the MCAT with 99-%tile in C/P and 96-%tile in B/B sections. Further, I focus on teaching critical test-taking strategies in addition to reviewing content material, for ex. how to perform logarithmic/algebraic manipulations without a calculator and how to "guess" the most appropriately on complicated questions.

Not only do I focus on studying the course material intensely but I address the motivational aspects involved with studying most capably, such as ways to most-efficiently consolidate information. Mental/emotional state, sleep state, diet, and physical activity are all critical facets that influence the effectiveness of study. I hope to take a holistic approach to provide the best learning experience for you to conquer your professional and academic goals.

My MCAT score report is as follows: 99-%tile (131) Physical and Chemical Foundations of Biological Systems 82-%tile (127) Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills 96-%tile (130) Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems 73-%tile (127) Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior In addition, I have insight into critical test-taking strategies and the mathematical operations needed for success on the MCAT (no calculator allowed). I am also familiar with ways to most effectively consolidate the knowledge you gain from your study time.
