About Russel


Bio

Dear Student,
My name is Russel. I graduated from the University of Virginia with a Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry and in Economics. Throughout high school and college, I could never make top grades. I spent hours studying every night, but I could never get straight A’s. It wasn't until I began pursuing my interest as a teacher during my 3rd year of college that I realized the shortcomings in my own study methods. I realized that taking a test involves a variety of skills including memory,...

Dear Student,
My name is Russel. I graduated from the University of Virginia with a Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry and in Economics. Throughout high school and college, I could never make top grades. I spent hours studying every night, but I could never get straight A’s. It wasn't until I began pursuing my interest as a teacher during my 3rd year of college that I realized the shortcomings in my own study methods. I realized that taking a test involves a variety of skills including memory, knowledge base, experience, and problem solving. I always excelled in problem solving but I was never able to memorize all the details needed to get 100% on the test. Diagnosing and addressing this issue in myself made me realize that this is a common problem among students.

After graduating college, I went on to teach and tutor students full time at a tutoring center that I opened. After three years of helping dozens of students succeed in SAT preparation, chemistry, biology, physics, calculus, writing, and college applications, I decided that I wanted to further develop my own education. I went on to medical school; I will be graduating with honors in the top 15% of my class and will go on to residency next year. I am using the time between graduating school and starting residency to help young students find their own path.

My main goal as a tutor is to help you develop as a learner. I want to help you diagnose your own learning shortcomings to help you succeed. This is why all my sessions start with a free 10-minute discussion of study skills and education pitfalls.

I have the most experience working with students who are high school age (or mature middle schoolers) and above.
Sincerely,
R

I was a full time tutor for 3 years and have helped dozens of students with one-on-one SAT test preparation. The most effective way to improve test scores on a test like Step 1 is to address deficiencies and not to waste time on subject strengths. I will help systematically diagnose weaknesses both in subject matter and test taking. I scored in the top 15% on Step 1 and am in the top 15% of my class.
