Before Bryce wanted to be a doctor, he was settled on becoming a bird. Yes, you read that correctly – at 4 years old he thought he could actually become an entirely different organism. Since a drastic change in ambition redirected his focus, Bryce attended Duke University and graduated summa cum laude with distinction in chemistry with a concentration in biochemistry. His undergraduate academic research was primarily in radiation oncology and the DNA-damage response which he completed at Duke University and Oxford University and is now published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation. At MD Anderson Cancer, Bryce worked on several clinical and translational projects aimed at improving outcomes for glioma and brain metastases patients. At Duke, Bryce was recognized as a BioCoRE Scholar, St. Baldrick’s Research Fellow, and Lublin Awardee. Bryce is now enrolled in the Health Sciences and Technology joint MD program between MIT and Harvard Medical School.
Bryce has tutored extensively in the sciences and placement exams, though his initial teaching experience began in teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) in both Thailand and India. He implores that in teaching a language, he learned the value and first-hand experience in breaking difficult concepts into smaller bite-sized chunks and being “a snail’s pace” patient with the learning process. He translated these skills to tutoring at Duke in organic chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology and genetics. At Cambridge Coaching, Bryce specializes in teaching biology, chemistry, and the MCAT.
Outside of tutoring you can find Bryce weightlifting or playing basketball in the gym, snowboarding on a steep inclined mountain, or surfing amongst the waves.
