Award-Winning MCAT Tutors in New York, NY
Marcus "I recently graduated from Yale University with a degree in Psychology but with intentions of one day going to medical school. I am currently doing research at the Hospital for Special Surgeries to gain valuable experience before heading off to medical school. While at Yale, I played soccer for 4 years and tutored other students in organic chemistry..."
Daniel "I recently finished up my Post-Bacc Pre Med Program this past Spring and am looking to offer help in science courses from middle school to college level. I graduated from Boston College in 2009 and have worked at the neuroscience and psychiatry labs at Yale and Cornell. I enjoy working with people and wish to one day specialize in geriatrics..."
Jace "I was a tutor in high school when I tutored fellow high school students who were falling behind. Being a great tutor is about listening to and understanding the tutee. Beyond a thorough understanding of the concepts being taught, a great tutor must be able to connect with the person they are teaching in order to best convey the concepts in a way the student will understand.."
Lillian "I am currently a medical student at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. I completed my undergraduate degree in 2013 at Columbia University, where I majored in English and Biology. After graduation, I spent a year working at a pediatric HIV clinic in Lesotho on a Princeton in Africa fellowship, and later, I completed my Master's in Public Health at University College Dublin on a Mitchell Scholarship. Having completed many applications in the course of my college and postgraduate degrees, I have significant experience in personal statement editing and application counseling..."
Herman "...As a result of my experiences, I am equipped with a versatile array of teaching methods and can tailor my style towards any particular student. In private tutoring, I would say I come across as approachable and relaxed, but enthusiastic about the subject I am teaching. As much as possible, I like to elicit solutions from the students themselves, rather than to take them through my method of solving a problem..."
Aamod "...The quickest way to learn is by doing, and if I am solving a problem for a student, then they are not absorbing that information as well as they could be if they were actively pursuing a solution themselves. This is a strategy that has served me well thus far, and I have personally watched students improve vastly under this philosophy. As important as efficient studying techniques are, being able to kick back and relax is just as crucial..."
Jason "I have two bachelor's degrees from MIT and a doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania. I have worked in scientific research for a number of years. I am currently studying Finance at Baruch College..."
Matthew "... While I was studying for the SAT, ACT, and MCAT, all of my preparation was through self-study; as a result, I have a unique approach to preparing for tests that emphasizes knowing the test itself more than the actual material. In addition to tutoring natural sciences and standardized test prep, I tutor Spanish, which I studied for 7 years and spoke for a year while living in Spain. In my spare time, I play guitar, cook for my friends, read, and play with my cat Suki..."
Jack "I'm a recent graduate of the University of California-Davis, where I majored in Anthropology and International Relations while also taking the science courses required for medical school admission. I was elected as a junior to Phi Beta Kappa, graduated magna cum laude, and received the 2015 Herbert A. Young Award, the highest honor given to a graduating senior in the UC Davis College of Letters and Sciences..."

Garrett "... My teaching style features visual learning, mnemonics, and hierarchical organization of material. I find that hierarchically cataloguing information by topic and sub-topic helps students retain material, as students are not simply memorizing, but are understanding how concepts relate to one another. More personally, my hobbies include tennis, movies, and travel..."
