Hello! Are you looking to simplify the test-prep process? All that physics, chemistry and biology too confusing to tackle on your own? As a state-certified teacher and resident physician in general surgery, I can help you to make connections between facts so you actually understand the science behind what you're learning. You'll then be on track to accomplishing your goals!

I have been preparing students for the MCAT both in large classroom classes and one-on-one tutoring sessions since 2007. I am a surgical resident and enjoy bringing clinical examples to the study of monotonous science in order to make things click. As a certified teacher with a Master's in Education, I also take into account your personal learning style while helping you to tackle the science that seems daunting.

Let's work together to accomplish your goals!

Biostatistics

I have taken courses in biostatistics in both undergraduate and medical school. I did well in the classes, but where I can benefit students the most is in my practical application of statistics to my research projects as it provides concrete examples of when to use each statistical test and what the results mean. This unique and practical way of approaching statistics one on one with students is beneficial.

Genetics

As a Biochemistry and Molecular Biology major in undergraduate school I took courses in both Molecular and Medical genetics. I Also worked on a research project regarding the genetics of Alzheimer's disease. I have further studied genetics in medical school and look forward to helping students understand topics in population and molecular genetics.

MCAT

I have been teaching and tutoring MCAT since 2007 and have had good results with my students. I scored in the 90th percentile on every section of the MCAT. I have kept up with the recent changes in the MCAT and I am eager to continue to help students succeed.

Nutrition

As a fourth year medical student, I have used Nutrition both in the testing format and practically while caring for patients. I always scored in the top quartile in my medical school class in nutrition and was at the 90th percentile for both of my USMLE exams (medical licensure) which includes topics in nutrition.

Organic Chemistry

I have been teaching and tutoring MCAT, which includes organic chemistry, since 2007 and have had good results with my students. I received a score of 33 on the MCAT in 2007 - 11 in each section. I have kept up with organic chemistry as I have worked with my students over the past few years.

Pharmacology

As a fourth year medical student, I have used my knowledge of pharmacology in the standardized test setting as well as practically in patient care. I always scored in the top quartile in my medical school class in pharmacology and was at the 90th percentile for both of my USMLE exams (medical licensure) which includes topics in pharmacology.

Great MCAT Tutor Austin was an irreplaceable resource in my mostly self-study MCAT preparation. He was instrumental in explaining a wide range of topics that weren't covered in my pre-med courses, and did so in a very patient and thorough manner. I felt much more confident going into the test thanks to his help, and achieved my score goals on the first try. ...
