How did you get started teaching?
Hello! My name is Donovan Dowers and I founded ChemCoach to help students turn their breakdowns into breakthroughs.
I have 6 years of academic coaching experience. While I was a student at Boston University, I served as an undergraduate teaching assistant for General Chemistry 1 and 2 for 1 year, and I am now in my 7th year of private coaching.
When I was an undergraduate student at BU, I truly struggled to find study methods that would get me top scores in the highly competitive and difficult pre-medical courses. In fact, I finished my sophomore year with below a 3.0 GPA! I wondered how I would ever get into medical school and fulfill my life career dream.
Instead of selling out and choosing an easier path, I pushed ahead full force and never looked back. The results I achieved landed me on the Dean's list junior and senior year. I then completed a Master's degree and then applied and was accepted to three well-known U.S. allopathic medical schools (MD and MD-MPH programs).
Literally, ANYTHING you want for yourself or for your life is available to you with the right mindset and hard work—and that is why creating breakthroughs for students is a passion of mine. I am here to help you achieve any dream you may have regardless of how impossible it seems right now.
I have worked with students of all ages, majors, and proficiencies and am an expert in helping you find your path to success. In addition to my coaching experience, I have also completed university-level education course work in teaching STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics courses) subjects.
I have a bachelor's degree in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology and a master's degree in Medical Sciences. I am now an MD-MPH student at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.
What types of students have you worked with?
