Hi, I'm Dov! I'm very excited to join the Varsity Tutors team, and would like to introduce myself.
I've been tutoring students for 5 years now; mostly in sciences such as biology and chemistry (as well as advanced biology classes) and graduate school-level courses (especially for medical students), but with a variety of other subjects in which I have significant experience. I take great enjoyment from helping students at all levels meet (and often exceed!) their goals. Generally, I apply the principles that worked for me as a student - as well as for past students I've tutored - in order to give my students the knowledge and tools to succeed in their classes and on their exams.
I'm currently taking a gap year before starting my radiology residency in New York City, and this affords me great flexibility with respect to tutoring scheduling.
