I am medical professional with a Doctorate in Medicine (MD), as well as two Bachelor’s Degrees in Biological Sciences and Psychology from the University of California Riverside. At UC Riverside, while earning two degrees in two different colleges, the sciences and the humanities, I completed wide and extensive coursework in sciences and humanities/social sciences. Some examples of coursework included biology, biochemistry, organic chemistry, physics, neuroscience, psychology, religious studies, Spanish, anatomy and physiology.

As a a long-time academic, student, and tutor, I have the experience both as a student and a teacher to help my students succeed. I have extensive knowledge of test preparation and testing strategies, as well as strong subject knowledge in a variety of maths, sciences, and humanities. I am an experienced tutor, I started out teaching at my university Learning Resource Center, and now having been working with students privately for the past 10 years as I completed my own undergraduate and medical education. I have had to prepare for many standardized exams over my academic career, and I know what is required. Moreover, I have the organizational skills and attention to detail to create and implement effective study plans. Based on my years of experience, my students achieve high scores. I am dedicated to my students and view their success as my success, and I am not someone who accepts failure easily. I am flexible in devising lesson plans, and often like to let my students guide the session to individualize it for their needs and to maximize their benefit. I also like to use frequent practice tests, to gauge learning and to identify areas for further work. Once these areas are identified I develop a thorough plan of attack.

Again, I have experience tutoring for many years, working with students from junior high school level through professional and graduate school level in subjects that include a variety of sciences, mathematics, social sciences, Spanish, and standardized exam preparation. I have experience in privately tutoring standardized exam preparation including MCAT, DAT, PCAT, GRE, SAT, and USMLE. I have personally sat for the SAT, MCAT, many NBME exams, and USMLE Steps 1, 2CK, and 2CS. I also speak Spanish and have worked with students whose primary language was Spanish.

I very much enjoy teaching and find it to be some of the most rewarding work. I believe my experience both as a student and tutor, my creative teaching methods, and my planning and organizational skills make me a great teacher. I am excited about the possibility of working with you.
