About Mauro

I'm very outgoing! I enjoy helping people work through subjects and test material in a stress-free environment, with some humor but keeping it very professional at the same time. I have tutored students from all ages and I really believe it is more important to help you develop a way on how to think about a given subject conceptually as opposed to just teaching a very narrow topic-based lesson. I like to tutor using mnemonics, analogies and help you relate concepts you're trying to learn with ideas you already master.

As far as my qualifications, I have a BS in Biochemistry cum laude from UT Austin with concentrations in Neuroscience, Philosophy and Spanish. I worked 3+ years as an Organic Chemistry, Biology and General Chemistry tutor at UT Austin. I have extensive experience in helping students master complex topics in these subjects. I also have worked as Math and Science tutor for grade school students.

I'm currently in medical school and I'm also working toward a Masters in Public Health. I have completed all basic science courses in Medical School including Biochemistry, Anatomy, Cell Biology, Microbiology and I feel competent to tutor in these subjects and to tailor lessons in any subject for people interested in pursuing Medical School or other healthcare graduate degrees.

In my free time I like to run, spend time with family/friends, playing racquetball and reading nerdy things. I am a student of the ancient art of finding good tacos.

Feel free to get in touch, ask me more about my experience style, etc. with no pressure or commitment!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
