Hi, my name is Brett and I am a graduate from the University of California, Santa Barbara with a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Studies with an emphasis in Chemistry. I received an Outstanding Academic Achievement Award for excellence in my major. I have worked as a free-lance tutor for the past year for middle-school and high-school aged students, specializing in helping students in the sciences including Biology and Physics, as well as math at various levels up to calculus. ...

I have worked with middle school and high school students in algebra 1 in the past. I was able to help them boost their grades and increase their interest in learning math.
I have tutored multiple students in the past on this subject and have been able to significantly improve their grades. I also took honors algebra 2 in high school and received an A both semesters.
I took honors biology in high school which did not teach to the AP curriculum, but through studying on my own I was able to pass the AP exam. Also, I took a year of Biology in college that included microbiology, genetics, and ecology. I also scored in the 80th percentile on the MCAT in the biology section, the admissions test for medical school. Also, I currently tutor a student in biology who went from receiving B's and C's to getting a 95% on their final exam.
I took AP Calculus BC in high school and received an A both semesters as well as receiving a 5 on the AP test, the highest score you can receive. I also took 2 additional math courses while in college beyond calculus.
I took AP chemistry in high school and received an A in the course. I also received a 5 on the AP test, the highest score offered. In college, I took 3 years of chemistry. One year of general chemistry, one year of organic chemistry, and one year of biochemistry. I have also tutored multiple students in chemistry previously and have been able to boost all of their grades and confidence in their skills significantly.
I took honors geometry in high school. I also received a score of 750 on the Math level 2 SAT II.
I took AP physics in high school. I also took a year of college level physics, receiving an A all three quarters. I have previously helped a student with physics and was able to help them increase their grade significantly.
I took honors precalculus in high school, as well as AP calculus BC. I received a score of 5 on the AP exam,, the highest score offered. I also scored a 750 on the SAT II for math level 2.
I took two statistics courses while in college. One being an introductory course and the other being calculus based probability.
I took the MCAT in the summer of 2015. My score report was as follows. MCAT scores: Physical Sciences: 14 99th percentile Verbal Reasoning: 11 95th percentile Biological Sciences: 10 76th percentile Overall: 35 96th percentile I took the MCAT twice. I took a prep course the first time I took it. I did not score well, and I do not feel that the course prepared me adequately for the test. However, what I did learn from the prep course was the strategies that worked, and those that did not in mastering the MCAT. Going through both the course and studying extensively on my own, I have a good grasp of what worked, and what did not. I feel confident that I would be able to pass those skills along to others.
