Ages 5+

Teaching since:
September 2012

I have been tutoring for 2 years, both as a private tutor and a teacher’s assistant. I have taught a variety of subjects but primarily specialize in MCAT prep, biology, neuroscience, chemistry, and math. With my help, many of my students have improved their test scores considerably in these subjects. I graduated from UC Irvine with a B.S. in neurobiology and afterwards I worked as a research fellow at the National Institutes of Health. Altogether, I have 5.5 years’ experience working in cellular/molecular neuroscience labs so I bring a deep understanding of many biology and chemistry concepts with real world applications.

I accept students of all ages, having tutored for college level students as well as elementary school students. I approach teaching by assessing my student’s strengths and weaknesses, followed by addressing confusions to until he/she is confident in the material.

I love science and math and hope to bring my enjoyment and confidence to you! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. :)

He is like my MCAT personal trainer! Always has great advice on how to study, which resources to use, how to schedule my study sessions. Highly recommend!
