About Jimmy

I have had a love for teaching ever since my high school days when I worked at a daycare, helping kids of all ages with their homework. In college, I expanded on that passion by working as a biostatistics teaching assistant as well as working as a genetics lab research grader. I have worked with other tutoring company, mostly with high school students on SAT prep as well as college level science classes. I am always excited to meet new students and eager to help them learn as effectively as possible!

I am currently attending my 2nd year of medical school at UTMB. Therefore, I am well versed in college level science courses including biology and chemistry as well as anatomy, physiology, and pathology related to various organ systems. However, I am more than willing to work at the high school or lower levels in math, English, or science classes. My goal for each student is to challenge them with weekly quizzes and homework assignments, but also to form each lesson plan around how each student learns best. For example, if you are uncomfortable with quizzes, then I will formulate another way to provide an adequate level of challenge and feedback. I strive to make the material easy to digest while making each session as fun and lighthearted as possible. I like to crack jokes to lighten the mood, and while others may find that unprofessional, I believe it's a much better alternative to a student who is not engaged in the subject matter.

For every new student, I like to get to know him/her a little better as well as gauge any specific learning habits that I could incorporate into my lessons. If this is something that you are interested in, please let me know and I will be happy to stop by before the sessions start (free of charge, of course!). Although I have a lot of experience tutoring students, any feedback is always welcome! I am always looking for ways to improve my teaching skills, so don't be afraid to send me an email or text message to let me know how I'm doing!

I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve the knowledge and scores you deserve!


I took math classes in high school and have consistently gotten A's in my math classes. Out of over 1,000 students at Plano West Senior High, I graduated with a rank of 25. On my SAT, I received the max score of 800 on the math section and have helped other students with their SAT math scores as well. I have also taken college level calculus courses and have received A's in both.

I graduated the University of Texas at Austin with a 3.82 GPA, 3.85 science GPA and a BS degree in Neurobiology. I was a pre-med student aiming to get into medical school so I have taken many college level science courses like biochemistry, cell biology, and more. I have worked as a biostatistics teaching assistant and have worked with genetics lab students on their research papers. If you are interested in MCAT prep, I have also recently taken the 2015 MCAT with a 514 score (91 percentile) and can help with strategies and basic knowledge. As a medical student, I have also spent many hours on material regarding the organ systems as well as more basic science courses such as biochemistry, microbiology, and many others! If you are also a pre-med student and want some advice as to how to proceed with your application, feel free to send me a message regarding that as well!

Let me know if you have any questions! I am always flexible in scheduling and can accommodate any of the week and at any hour.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I am currently working for another tutoring company that permits me to teach various subjects including SAT level math which includes Algebra I. I have also worked at a daycare for middle aged students and have helped with algebra homework or assignments. My little sister is currently taking the course in middle school and I also often help her with questions she has.

Biology

I used to work as a genetics lab research paper grader where I would help students come up with valid research topics, organize their arguments, and provide feedback for the paper. I am also currently tutoring for another company that allows me to teach various science courses like biochemistry.

Biostatistics

I have worked as a biostatistics teaching assistant at UT Austin for 3 semesters. My responsibilities included helping students during lecture as well as lab, grading various assignments, and proctoring exams. The lab portion was held weekly and included coding in R studio in order to complete various statistical tests.

Chemistry

I currently working with a tutoring company where I have tutored college level students in various subjects such as biochemistry and biology. I have received A's on all chemistry classes I have taken at UT Austin, and I believe that I am very proficient in the subject. I have also recently taken the MCAT, the board exam for medical school entrance, and received a 93 percentile in the chemistry and physics section of the test.

MCAT

I have just recently taken the new 2015 MCAT and received a score of 514 (91 percentile). I took a recent MCAT prep course online so I know how to teach the subject well. I have also taken a lot of the courses that are tested on the MCAT such as biology, chemistry, biochemistry, physics, and psychology.
