Conklin "... The most important skill we can develop as students and people is to realize the things that we do not know and find ways to ask questions about them. Whatever these things are, they are most certainly different for everyone, and challenging them and tackling them head on is a sure fire way to grow intellectually. Being an effective questioner and an astute observer of the unknown is a life-long task, and through hard work and focus, I believe anyone can grow into a stronger thinker and a more effective student. I also think science is very fun, and the best way to improve in a subject that may be difficult is to find the parts of it which are enjoyable to you..."
Alexander "...I am now tutoring full time while I apply to medical school. I am a strong test taker (2250 SAT and 41 MCAT) and hope to be able to transfer as much as possible about what I have learned to you. As a tutor, I hope to help you understand the material. I believe that the key to learning and doing well in class is really understanding the material, so I like to focus less on memorization and more on concepts..."

Zachary "... During college, I had the chance to work with a number of students, teaching and supporting them as they worked hard toward their goals. Science can be challenging and frustrating, but together I have helped many students have a "light bulb" moment. It's satisfying for me to see, but far more satisfying for them to experience! I have enjoyed working with students from very diverse backgrounds and starting at very different levels..."
