Award-Winning MCAT Tutors in New York, NY
Matthew "... While I was studying for the SAT, ACT, and MCAT, all of my preparation was through self-study; as a result, I have a unique approach to preparing for tests that emphasizes knowing the test itself more than the actual material. In addition to tutoring natural sciences and standardized test prep, I tutor Spanish, which I studied for 7 years and spoke for a year while living in Spain. In my spare time, I play guitar, cook for my friends, read, and play with my cat Suki..."
Jason "I have two bachelor's degrees from MIT and a doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania. I have worked in scientific research for a number of years. I am currently studying Finance at Baruch College..."
John "... After graduating I moved to NYC to pursue a Master's in Nutrition from the Institute of Human Nutrition at Columbia University (Disclaimer: I still indulge in McDonalds). I am now working as a clinical research assistant and am studying the effect of a weight drug on the cardiovascular and metabolic factors. In my spare time I like to snowboard at Okemo Mountain in Vermont, seek out awesome Thai food in NYC, run on the Hudson River Park and travel..."
Garrett "... My teaching style features visual learning, mnemonics, and hierarchical organization of material. I find that hierarchically cataloguing information by topic and sub-topic helps students retain material, as students are not simply memorizing, but are understanding how concepts relate to one another. More personally, my hobbies include tennis, movies, and travel..."
Aqeel "...To be able to take someone with an attitude of the topic being too hard to being confident enough to approach any challenge. I love showing how a deeper understanding can translate to being able to adapt to any situation you encounter on the test. This approach served me well as both an undergraduate and graduate teaching assistant..."
John "...It's my goal to have that effect on the students I tutor. I graduated from the University of New Haven with a dual BS in premedical biology and forensic biology with a minor in chemistry. While I was there, I worked as a teaching assistant for the chemistry department; I prepared solutions and answered an ocean of questions about laboratory technique and chemistry in general..."
Herman "...As a result of my experiences, I am equipped with a versatile array of teaching methods and can tailor my style towards any particular student. In private tutoring, I would say I come across as approachable and relaxed, but enthusiastic about the subject I am teaching. As much as possible, I like to elicit solutions from the students themselves, rather than to take them through my method of solving a problem..."
Andrew "...Currently, I work as a research scientist at The Mount Sinai Hospital studying pediatric immunology and biochemistry. I will be conducting research until I begin medical school in Fall 2013. I have over four years of tutoring experience including a teacher's assistant at Skidmore, working with local high school student,s and coordinating with my ice hockey team to complete several community service projects in our area. My experiences as a tutor, team leader, published researcher, and NCAA athlete have taught me to form strong bonds with those I work with. I hope to share my passion for science and inspire others as I tutor..."
Paul "...Let's see: I won a couple writing grants (I know, I know--no surprise there); I became the longest tenured member of a particular honors society; I had some exploitative internships in the arts. In other words, I did it all. If you're looking for an experienced tutor capable of skillfully helping others in everything from ultra-super-advanced writing to math, lit, standard essay writing, test prep and more, I hope you'll consider reaching out to me, and I look forward to hearing from students off all ages, learning backgrounds and goals..."
Rachel "I recently graduated from Wesleyan University with a Bachelor of Arts in Biology and I’m currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Narrative Medicine at Columbia University. Narrative Medicine combines my love of writing and communication with my passion for scientific and medical knowledge, and my ability to merge these two interests is also what makes me a great tutor. I've spent the past few years tutoring my college peers in organic chemistry and working as a teaching assistant for introductory biology classes..."
