Lesson Details

Biology

Levels Taught:
Elementary, Middle School, High School, College
Short Version: I scored over the 98th percentile on both the SAT II Biology (M) exam and AP Biology exams and have a degree in physiology from UCLA.

Long Version: Biology is one of the subjects that I tutor students on most throughout the year. Many of the students that come to be for help are in Advanced Placement (AP) Biology and are struggling to understand the material and do well on class exams. Other students come to me to get additional preparation to score highly on the SAT Biology and/or AP Biology exams, both of which are valued highly by colleges and universities throughout the application cycle. Having scored over the 98th percentile on both the SAT II Biology (M) exam and AP Biology exams myself, and having tutored students in biology for the MCAT (for medical school), I have very strong command over this subject area and can help improve one's understanding in the area greatly.

Albert tutored our daughter over a period of 2 years for multiple subjects, including AP/SAT exams for math, science, and English. Our daughter received A's in all of the classes that Albert tutored her in, and excellent scores on her SAT and AP exams that resulted in acceptance to her top-choice universities. We give our highest recommendations to Albert's mentorship, tutoring, and college admissions advising. Thank you!
