My name is Joel and I want to thank you for taking the time to explore my tutor profile. I wear many hats including being a physician in training, pianist, day-trader, and professional tutor. To use an appropriate analogy, when you have car trouble, you take your car to a mechanic to fix the problem, NOT the salesman who sold it to you. As a professional tutor, I want to be your trusted mechanic. I am NOT a current/former teacher. Whereas teachers are trained to present "testable" informati... [more]
I have had 9 years of math tutoring with students ranging in age from 4-30+.
I have had 9 years of professional math tutoring experience through Calculus IV.
Neurobiology major, current medical student, 99th percentile MCAT biological sciences, 36/36 ACT Science
I received an 800/800 on my SAT Math exam and a 35/36 on my ACT Math exam. I have had 9 years' experience tutoring subjects including prealgebra, algebra I/II/III, trigonometry, pre-calculus, calculus I/II/III/IV, statistics, biostatistics, econometrics, and math modeling.
My 2310 composite SAT score was as follows: 800 math, 760 reading, and 750 writing.
35/36 ACT English, 10 years of professional tutoring experience, studied English Language and Literature at Emory University.
I am a second year medical student at the Medical College of Georgia. I scored a 35 on the MCAT (96th percentile). In addition to having personally taken specific MCAT prep courses, I have experience tutoring others for the exam. My tutoring methods involve using diagnostic tests as indicators of areas to focus on in order to improve scores as much as possible within a limited time period. I also stress the importance of learning strategies for effective test-taking and can offer advice on the entire medical school process.
I am a current medical student so in addition to being in the field, my knowledge of the requisite subjects for this exam (reading, math, English, science, and language) meets/exceeds the level of expertise needed to tutor for this test. I have also tutored several students for this standardized exam in the past and they have all successfully been admitted to nursing school. Finally, the subject matter on the TEAS is very similar (if not actually simpler) than that on ASVAB, GRE, etc. and I certified to teach all of those.
I successfully took and passed both USMLE Step 1, Step 2 CK, and Step 2 CS. All exams were passed on the first try and scores were in the top quartile. As a recent American allopathic medical school graduate, I have first-hand experience preparing for these exams and doing well.
