GED

The GED Examination is divided into 5 tests: 1. Language Arts, Writing 2. Social Studies 3. Science 4. Language Arts, Reading 5. Mathematics The five tests are designed to measure the knowledge and skills that a student should have acquired after four years in high school. One important thing about the tests is that even though the questions may involve a specific area of study such as science, you don't have to memorize specific facts, details, dates, or even exact definitions. Much of this information is given to you in the test itself. You will have to be able to read and understand the material that is presented and then to answer questions about it. With the exception of the essay part of the Writing Skills test, all of the questions in the GED Examination are multiple choice. You will be given a brief statement, short passage, map, table, or diagram, and then you will have to answer one or more multiple-choice questions about this material. I help the students who are trying to obtain their GED by: 1. Identify their specific areas of needs and then provide intensive review for all necessary sections with relevant practice material. 2. In addition to the tutoring, provide ongoing homework as part of the tutoring to help them both reinforce and retain the learning.

MCAT

The MCAT contains 4 sections: Physical Sciences, Verbal Reasoning, Biological Sciences and a Trial Section. The Verbal Reasoning section follows the Physical Sciences section after an optional 10 minute break. It lasts for 60 minutes for answering 40 multiple-choice questions evaluating their comprehension, evaluation, and application of information gathered from written passages. Unlike the Physical and Biological Sciences sections, the Verbal Reasoning section does NOT require specific content knowledge in order to answer and succeed. As a tutor for the MCAT, I will prepare and provide in-depth tutoring tailored for individual needs for the: VERBAL section of the test which includes: ? Comprehensive review of reading strategies and related exercises. ? Grammatical review and exercises. ? Provision of sample questions, answers, and explanation based on sample tests. PHYSICAL SCIENCE section of the test which includes: ? Comprehensive review of basic and advanced concepts in Physics at the college level accompanied with relevant and related exercises. ?

Biostatistics


CBEST

The California Basic Educational Skills Test (CBEST) is a standardized test administered throughout the state of California and Oregon for individuals who want to teach at public schools and gain a credential. It is divided into 3 sections; the Reading section and the Math section each contain 50 multiple-choice questions, while the Writing section consists of two essay questions. The test must be completed in four hours, but test-takers may use that time to work on any or all of the three sections. For the past 3 years, I have successfully tutored numerous students who were preparing to take the CBEST with success. This is based on the fact that as a science major who obtained a bachelor degree in Biochemistry from the University of CA, Los Angeles, UCLA, I have received very high scores from the GRE (Graduate Record Examination: Reading Comprehension: 94th Percentile; Analytical Writing: 94th Percentile, Math: 770 out of 800). At the same time, the Math, the Reading and the Writing section on the CBEST are very similar to the 3 sections on the GRE. For the math, the GRE is in reality much more difficult than the CBEST and consists of problems based on Algebraic and Statistical concepts and problems. The same parallel can be drawn for the Reading and the Writing sections of CBEST.


ISEE

The ISEE stands for the Independent School Entrance Exam and it is an admission test that contains four levels: primary, lower, middle and upper: ? Primary level is for students enrolled in grades 1, 2 and 3. It is an hour-long test which mainly focus on a reading and math section and a short writing sample. ? Lower level is for students currently in grades 4 and 5. ? Middle level is for students in grades 6 and 7. ? Upper level is for students in grades 8 through 11. For the Lower, Middle, and Upper levels, the ISEE consists of three parts: (1) carefully constructed and standardized verbal and quantitative reasoning tests that measure capability for learning; (2) reading comprehension and mathematics achievement tests that provide specific information about strengths and weaknesses in those areas; and (3) an essay section. The essay is timed and written in response to a prompt. It is not scored; it is photocopied and sent only to the schools requested. By using a standardized ISEE study guide, I provide in-depth and tailored tutoring based on individual student needs and preparation of lessons from the actual ISEE exam which includes the: ? Math review (review of all mathematical concepts and data interpretation) and relevant exercises. ? Verbal reasoning which includes a comprehensive grammar review and reading comprehension strategies and exercises. ? Writing topics based on ISEE preparation manual. ? Provision of relevant practice and exercises to supplement the above tutoring. These efforts include the provision of sample questions, answers, and explanation based on the actual sample tests. ? Provision of ongoing pre-tutoring preparation and post-tutoring help.


TEAS

The TEAS covers 4 sections and it is used as an entrance test for individuals who want to pursue a career in nursing assistant or nursing. These 4 sections include: 1. READING 2. MATH 3. SCIENCE 4. The ENGLISH and LANGUAGE USAGE I have successfully tutored students who were preparing to take the TEAS with success. This is based on the fact that as a science major who obtained a bachelor degree in Biochemistry from the University of CA, Los Angeles, UCLA, I have received very high scores from the GRE (Graduate Record Examination: Reading Comprehension: 94th Percentile; Analytical Writing: 94th Percentile, Math: 770 out of 800). At the same time, the Reading, the English and Language Usage, and the Math section on the TEAS is very similar to the GRE. For the math, the GRE is in reality much much more difficult than the TEAS and consists problems based on Algebraic and Statistical concepts and problems; The same parallel can be drawn for the Reading and the English and language Usage sections. Given the fact I majored in Biochemistry at the University of CA, Los Angeles, I also tutor Biology, Chemistry, and Physics.


Finite Math

"Finite Math" is a survey of mathematical analysis techniques used in the working world, organizing information and then analyzing it. It's also another way to use math to give people experience at analytical thinking. It is often a required course for business, accounting and computer majors. I have tutored ?Finite Math? which includes the following list of core concepts with extensive experience for the last 5 years. My experience encompasses basic and advanced concepts in Algebra, Pre-Calculus, Trigonometry, Statistics and their real life applications. In addition, I also prepare relevant exercises for the tutoring free of charge.
