I understand how stressful applying to medical school can be, and I really want to help other candidates through the process. I have accumulated firsthand experience with taking the MCAT and applying to medical school that I would love to share. I would be willing to tutor for the MCAT, review application essays including the personal statement, hold mock interviews with feedback, and offer personalized advice and tips. Also, I am very comfortable with science subjects and could provide tutoring in physics, general chemistry, organic chemistry, and biology.

My background and credentials: I am a first year student at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. I scored very well in each section on the MCAT, successfully gained admission into top medical schools, and earned a scholarship for tuition. Previously, I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania (Class of 2013) in Philadelphia with a dual degree in biology and business. I achieved Dean's List recognition for outstanding academic performance each year. In my spare time, I enjoy playing the flute and dancing.

I have been playing the flute for about 10 years. In high school, I was the first chair flutist in concert band and marching band, and I was also selected to perform in the District and Regional bands. In college, I have mentored elementary and middle school flute students for three years. I am always very patient with my students, and I bring enthusiasm and energy to each lesson.


I took the MCAT in June 2012 and scored very well in each section, including verbal reasoning, physical sciences, and biological sciences. I self-studied using books from a variety of test prep companies. I would be happy to tutor students in individual subjects or share high-yield tips and tactics for taking the test.

Organic Chemistry

I have completed courses in Organic Chemistry I, Organic Chemistry II, and Organic Chemistry Lab. Beyond this coursework, I self-studied the subject when preparing for the MCAT. At school, I have enjoyed helping many of my underclassmen friends to understand the material and solve problems.

Excellent MCAT Tutor Shikha was tremendously helpful in my MCAT preparations. Particularly in the biological sciences, Shikha had a knack for breaking down challenging concepts to simple ideas and analogies. She also is able to discuss micro and macro strategies for the test and beginning the medical school application process. Shikha was reliable, well-versed in many different topics, and an absolute pleasure to work ...
