About this tutor

I am a published researcher, current 3rd year medical student with a bachelors in neuroscience and masters in medical science. Throughout the years I have tutored and mentored many students in math and science. Whether your student is prepping for the Medical College Admission Test or high school anatomy, let me instill a passion for learning that will carry them to success in their academic pursuits as well as life. My favorite subjects are Anatomy and Biochemistry. As a father of two young children, I understand the importance of patience and that learning must be taylored to each individual student. 

My favorite part of the job is seeing students have that "oh, i get it" in which they can not only answer questions correctly but also apply the knowledge and concepts in a novel way.

    Paging Dr. Dad! Oscar is an amazing tutor. His knowledge of topics covered was exceptional. He was extremely patient and willing to explain things on a macro and micro level for better understanding of the subject. Overall his adaptability and versatility during our sessions was outstanding. It was an enjoyable experience since Oscar was well equipped, motivated and enthusiastic throughout the duration of the sessions. I will definitely refer Oscar to all struggling students. Thank you again Oscar!

    Oscar was extremely knowledgeable in the sciences, patient, relatable, and professional. He made learning fun and I felt that he really took the time to get to know me and teach me exactly what I needed to know in a relatable way that I could understand. I highly recommend him to EVERYONE!

Typically, I speak to the student's parents if they are a minor during the initial corespondence. Next, we would establish the nature of the work and/or subjects. Lastly, we would find time to meet or use video conference depending on personal preferences.

How did you get started teaching?

I first started tutoring in high school. My friends needed help with chemistry and physics. Eventually, their grades went up on quizzes and exams and their parents offered to pay me for regular sessions. While in college I tutored in the science and math labs on campus. Then in graduate school hosted elementary and middle school science fairs. Finally, in medical school I taught Gross Anatomy and UltraSound workshops. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with K-12, college, graduate, and Medical School levels 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Last summer I hosted a Med School camp for teens called the National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine. This event held over three days and facilited over 300 high school age students looking to pursue careers in healthcare. We put on learning and hands on workshops to engage the students and inspire long term goals like becoming physicians. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would empore students to seek out instructors that know the content at a sophisticated depth but can also distilla and explain concepts in the simplest manner. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What are your goals for this class/subject/exam?
