Clark Zhang Tutoring
About this pro
I am a recent Wellesley College graduate who was looking for a tutor to tighten up my physical science section on the MCAT. The first time I met with Clark, I was impressed that he took time to understand my strengths and weaknesses before delving into subjects I wanted to work on. He asked me questions about subjects I thought I knew well only to find room for improvement. During our meetings, he focussed on how I learn and pushed me to understand details I previously neglected. He had the intuition to know whether I truly understood the material. Most importantly, he pushed to see if I had the knowledge required to answer MCAT style questions. His quizzing ensured that I could quickly answer questions I struggled with in the past. Not only was Clark well-tuned to the MCAT and the details one must know to get a good score, but he had numerous resources that were extremely helpful. He has very extensive and very helpful notes on practically every subject in physics and chemistry. These notes were of particular use when I was out of town working an internship in Chicago. While I was out of town, I still wanted to work with Clark. He was flexible and agreed to tutor me over Skype. We used google documents to draw diagrams in order to discuss problems. After working with Clark for two months, I already sense an improvement, not only in how much I understand the material we have reviewed, but also on the way I approach the typical MCAT-type problem. When I recently took the MCAT, I felt prepared. I cannot stress how important it is to feel prepared on your test day. Having a tutor like Clark can make a world of difference when you sit down to take the test and you realize you know the answers to the questions you are being tested on.Aug 22, 2012
