ExperienceDuring my time in college and after graduation, I have spent vast amounts of time either tutoring or being tutored in the basic sciences, including for a tutoring company where I received very high reviews from my students. As a Biology major with a pre-med emphasis, I have developed a strong background in the basic sciences (Chemistry, Biology, Physics) that has been enhanced by tutoring Human Physiology while in college and high school Biology through Horizons for Youth. While having performed well in the basic sciences in college, I have managed to gain an even more thorough mastery of the material through MCAT preparation. Part of what makes a great tutor is not only having a strong knowledge foundation, but an ability to listen to the tutee and convey that information in a way that makes sense to them. My tutoring philosophy revolves around the Socratic method: namely, I try to help the student discover the subject for themselves versus me simply giving them the answers. I believe that (guided) personal discovery leads not only to greater understanding, but greater knowledge retention as well. Additionally, as someone who played Division III basketball in college, I have also been doing private basketball lessons where many of the same concepts, albeit in a different context, of tutoring school subjects apply.
I have a soft spot for MCAT students, but I would love the opportunity to work with any student who is struggling or just wants to be the best they can be. I'm also available to tutor online.
