"Currently, I am taking a gap year while applying to medical school. Throughout my undergraduate experience, I developed a deep appreciation for education and tutoring, especially within the sciences. Through a program called the Academic Mastery Program, I led weekly workshops and developed supplementary worksheets for students in chemistry classes. In addition, I have had significant experience tutoring high school and college students in both math and chemistry and have an aptitude for writing, Spanish, and standardized testing."

"A few years later as a senior in high school, I picked up my first formal student and have been tutoring ever since! As an MCAT tutor, many of my students ask me "David, why aren't you in med school?", so I'll preemptively answer it here. Simply put, I don't want to be! I'm keeping med school in my sights, but in the meanwhile I'm pursuing other goals and tutoring provides me the opportunity to stay in academia while devoting time to exploring my interests - one of which is actually teaching! This passion for teaching stems from my enthusiastic curiosity; I get so excited about what I'm learning that I want to share it with other people! ...

"At UCLA, I worked as a tutor for UCLA athletes and underprivileged middle school students in an afterschool program. I believe that my students connect to me because they can see that I genuinely care about their learning and they know that I will answer all their questions without judgement. I try to make my sessions as fun as possible, yet really enjoy challenging my students and picking their brains with a lot of questions to actively engage them in their own learning. I don't expect my students to be passive during our sessions together." ...

"Since then, I have been tutoring people of all ages. I really enjoy the excitement of tutoring younger kids as well as the challenge of tutoring individuals in high school and college. Usually people contact me for MCAT tutoring, but I enjoy tutoring a wide variety of subjects! I believe that everyone learns differently, and I do whatever it takes to alter my teaching style to the individual I tutor.."

"However, I love to learn about and experience different academic arenas, leading to internships at top film promotions and finance companies. My tutoring experience includes being a Supplemental Instruction Leader at USC for General Chemistry.

"I earned my Bachelor's degree at UCLA in neuroscience in 2006 and decided to continue my research in the field by pursuing my doctoral degree at UCI. I have tutored students in math and the sciences starting in high school and have consistently tutored students during college and my post-graduate studies. I enjoy tutoring as it enables me to make a positive change in my students' academic careers. One of my favorite hobbies is distance running, I've completed around 30 marathons and ultramarathons and enjoy running every day."

" I love tutoring- during my undergraduate years I taught everything from Biostatistics to MCAT prep, and I thoroughly enjoy helping students understand that difficult biological process that had been eluding them, or seeing them score higher on a test after we have worked hard at it. While my tutoring experience has been limited to college students and college coursework, I feel that I could be very effective with high school students as well as undergraduates. Though my experience and schooling largely rests in the life sciences field, I can definitely teach more than science as I have extensive experience tutoring for the MCAT, which ...

"I have had the privilege of teaching these intriguing subjects either by mentoring peers and classmates of mine while in college or while tutoring students as a volunteer tutor. Specifically, while I was in Ohio, I had the honor of volunteering with a youth organization that focused on helping lower income children, acting as both a tutor and a mentor to them. Additionally, having taken the MCAT exam twice and scoring dramatically better score the second time, I feel that I have compiled a set of study skills and techniques that could also help other pre-med students who, like me, had struggled with getting familiar with that challenging ...

"Ever since I sat in on one of my family member's lectures at a prestigious university in Canada, I've always wanted to give tutoring a go. Eventually, I want to attend medical school and become a doctor. I primarily work with high school students right now in AP test preparation but I have also tutored college students and other high school students in standardized test preparation and just regular coursework. Math and science classes are really just elaborate puzzles to solve, and most of my students learn to enjoy the process of figuring out what to do once I help them develop the confidence and skill set they need to be successful." ...
