Hey I'm Uchenna! I'm from Beltsville, MD and I currently am taking a year off between my third and fourth years at the University of Michigan Medical School to do biomedical research at the NIH. I also graduated magna cum laude from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) with a B.S. in Biochemistry and a minor in Psychology. I have quite a few years of tutoring under my belt as I tutored for about 3 years when I was at UMBC. And although I had no formal tutoring positions in medical school, my classmates and I constantly taught each other our material and various concepts. I love tutoring because I know trying to be successful in your coursework can be difficult and when you can help someone throughout that journey, it truly is beneficial for both tutee and tutor seeing the mutual satisfaction in that person's progress.
I have always been fairly good at math and this was no different on the SATs. Through hard work and preparation, the SAT math section proved to be my best individual score with a 760. I also took the Math Subject Test and did well on that as well. I have an extensive background in mathematics from algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, and calculus from the elementary up to college-level difficulty and I make it my goal to help students understand what sometimes does feel like another language of numbers.
Throughout my entire life I have always been passionate about science. It is what eventually led me into pursuing a Biochemistry degree in college and ultimately the field of medicine. I have always understood scientific subjects well and naturally, it helped me tutor a variety of subjects (chemistry, organic chemistry, biology, physics, etc.) in high school and college. I believe that your progress in science courses depends on learning fundamental concepts and constantly building on them which is something I always strive to do and work with tutees on.
Please don't hesitate to reach out! I would love to help you in whatever STEM or test prep class that I can to help you reach your goals. I will do my best to respond promptly as well. Looking forward to working with you!
