I am currently a medical student at the University of Toledo College of Medicine. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Maryland College Park in 2014, having majored in Cell Biology and Molecular Genetics with a minor in Sustainability. I have experience as a tutor. When I was in high school, I volunteered at South Lake Elementary School, where I assisted elementary school students with mathematics and reading. During my sophomore and junior years (past two yea... [more]
When I was at the University of Maryland, I tutored local high school students with SAT math/algebra. I also have prior experience tutoring with algebra, algebra 2, calculus, precalculus, geometry, statistics, and trigonometry.
Prior experience tutoring students for Algebra 2. Experience tutoring for Calculus and Precalculus as well.
Received a score of 5 on the BC calculus exam (more specifically, a score of 5 on both the AB and BC subscores). Experience tutoring calculus as well.
Previously taken General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Biochemistry I & II at the University of Maryland. When in high school, I attended the Science Mathematics Computer Science Magnet Program at Poolesville High School and took honors/magnet chemistry, thermodynamics, physical chemistry, and AP Chemistry. I passed the AP Chemistry exam and received credit.
I have experience with tutoring Geometry. When in high school, attended a magnet program.
Experience tutoring trigonometry and precalculus to high school and college students. Tutored both when I attended the Science Mathematics Computer Science Magnet Program at Poolesville High School and at the University of Maryland College Park. Recently, I tutored a student in precalculus, focusing on solving trigonometry equations, converting between degrees and radians, as well as graphing trig functions.
Experience tutoring trigonometry, including graphing trig functions, solving trig functions, converting between degrees and radians, etc.
I graduated from the University of Maryland, where I took a Biostatistics course. I have also taken courses that covered statistics in high school.
Government & Politics
I have taken a few Government & Politics related courses at the University of Maryland. Additionally, when I was in high school, I took the AP NSL (government) class and received a score of 5 on the exam. I have also taken AP Human Geography and AP World History exams. I have also taken US History as well.
Prior experience tutoring local high school students with SAT math and reading/English at the University of Maryland. I also have prior experience tutoring high school students in Montgomery County with SAT math. I have taken many of the subjects that are covered on the SAT when I was in high school.
I took a Microbiology biology course in medical school. I have several ways to study microbiology, depending on a person's learning style, includes tables, flow charts, and visual aids, like SketchyMedical.
Tutored and taught basic elementary school math during the summer at an Elementary School.
I have experience taking AP Microeconomics and received a score of 5 on the AP exam.
I have prior experience tutoring elementary school students with mathematics, reading, and English. Several years ago, I volunteered at an elementary school summer program. I worked with a teacher and taught both mathematics and reading/English.
Good study skills can play a key role in academic success. When I was in my junior year at UMD, I taught an introductory course for freshmen students and one of the lessons focused on proper study skills and academic success. Having attended a Magnet School in High School, I learned the importance of study skills, including being organized, proper time management, etc.
I have taken the 2013 MCAT and received a passing score. I applied and was accepted into medical school. I have taught biology to post-bac and pre-med students. I have also taken biochemistry, physics, psychology, sociology, English, organic chemistry, general chemistry, cell biology, and genetics, many of the topics on the MCAT, and I have some MCAT material as well.
At the University of Maryland, I took a Biostatistics course and received a grade of A. Additionally, when I was in high school, I took Statistics as well. I have taught biostatistics (basic statistics) as a teaching assistant for an Introductory Biology course when discussing genetics and population ecology. Additionally, I have experience with biostatistics in my Genetics and Biology Courses.
I have taken numerous Genetics courses. When I was in high school (Science, Mathematics, Computer Science Magnet Program at Poolesville High School), I took a genetics course. At the University of Maryland, I took Genetics as well as Molecular Genetics. I have also taught genetics as a teaching assistant for a plant biology lab and an introductory biology course.
I have taken Organic Chemistry I and II, along with the corresponding labs, at the University of Maryland. I have also taken Biochemistry I and II, which require knowledge of many organic chemistry concepts. I believe that one way to learn the mechanisms is to do many practice problems and also make flash cards as well.
I am a medical student who has taken pharmacology as part of an Organ Systems course. I have used several resources for Pharmacology, including Sketchy. Pharmacology requires repetition and memorization but also having a deeper understanding of the mechanism of action will be helpful in remembering medications.
When I was in middle school, I took social studies. In high school, I took a few social studies classes, including AP World History, US history, AP Microeconomics, AP Macroeconomics, and I also took the AP Human Geography exam. I passed all of these AP exams with a score of 4 or 5. At the University of Maryland, I took social studies classes including psychology and sociology.
As a medical student, I have taken a biochemistry course that covered nutrition, including vitamins and minerals. These topics were also addressed as part of an Organ Systems course that covered pathology, pathophysiology, physiology, and pharmacology. Nutrition may seem simple but the underlying biochemical process can be complex.
