University of Washington (Biochemistry)
Hi there, my name is Randy, I graduated from the University of Washington in 2016 with a Bachelors of Science degree in Biochemistry and a minor in Chemistry.
I started my tutoring career while I was in high school, and progressed all throughout college as a UW CLUE chemistry tutor and an academic mentor. Teaching is a true passion of mine, and I find it rewarding to build up my student's academic abilities. I excel at breaking down complex topics into comprehensible pieces, and always work to assess my student's individual learning strategy so that I can tailor my teaching methods respectively.
My areas of expertise include Chemistry, Biology, Biochemistry, Physics, and Math. I have taken college level courses in all of these areas, as well as scoring at the 90 percentile on the Medical College Admissions Test. I am is currently in the process of applying to medical school, with aspirations on becoming an Emergency Medicine Physician.
I also served as an Assistant Director in a hospital volunteering program at the Swedish Medical Center, where I taught new volunteers about the healthcare system, program policies, and vital clinical skills.
Within this role, I also piloted and implemented a Mentorship Project throughout the program, which offered pre-medical students advice and guidance regarding the application process and their personal statements.
I am passionate about teaching, and hopes to utilize this skill to help students who are struggling in their classes, or to help them achieve to the best of their potential.

Randy is an amazing tutor! Having taken, and struggled with, two precious chemistry classes I reached out to Randy for help with biochem. Randy was flexible with meeting times and places. He helped me to review concepts taught in class and further explain those I did not understand in different ways. He was able to assist me with review problems as well as challenge me with additional problems he came up with. Randy was very patient and was willing to reexplain concepts multiple times if needed. At the end of the class, I finished with an amazing grade and a strong understand of biochemistry topics. I will definitely be reaching out to Randy for future help, and recommend that others do the same!
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.
