About Gabe


Bio

When I talk to people about CARS, I often hear the same thing: “I’ve tried everything and my score won’t budge”.

But after we work together for a while, they do improve. That’s because I’ve painstakingly analyzed every CARS passage the AAMC has released and put together a strategy that WORKS. This is the same strategy I used to score a 132 in CARS and that I have taught to many students.

Ultimately, CARS is a skill that can be taught just like any other part of the MCAT.

Ultimately, CARS is a skill that can be taught just like any other part of the MCAT.

Here’s how I do it:

My CARS tutoring combines one-on-one instruction with the structure of a course.

Each week I'll show you exactly which practice passages to do. As you work through those passages you'll also have access to pre-recorded passage breakdowns which dissect every single passage in detail.

You'll see exactly how you should approach each passage at every step of the way. For each question I'll show you not just why the answer is correct, but how YOU can solve them for yourself in the future.

Along the way I'll highlight the main strategy points you should keep in mind. I'll also give you additional exercises to work on to hone your skills.

Each week you'll also have a one-on-one session with me (this is already included in the overall cost!)

The cost of the course includes both the recorded lectures AND weekly one-on-one instruction. You can start the course at any time.

If you think you might be interested, send me a message! Even if you're not sure. We can always set up a phone call to discuss whether it's the right fit.

MCAT

I teach students the same step-by-step strategy for CARS that I used to score a 132. Get in touch and we can set up a free intro session. I've helped students from all skill levels improve at CARS. My tutoring includes weekly one-on-one sessions, but is structured like a course. In addition to the individual tutoring, you'll have access to hours of recorded instruction. That means you'll be able to take your CARS skills to the next level – no matter where you're starting from. When I took the MCAT I scored 526 overall with a 132 in CARS. My breakdown by section was: Chemistry/Physics – 132 CARS – 132 Biology/Biochemistry – 132 Psychology/Sociology – 130 I’ve carefully refined my teaching approach over the course of several years tutoring.

Best CARS Tutor You'll Ever Find

Above all, Gabe was patient with my concerns, questions, and anxieties when helping me prep for the CARS section of my MCAT. There are some tutors who are knowledgable, but struggle to effectively teach. Then, there are some tutors who are empathetic teachers, but are limited in their abilities to fit your needs. Gabe was honestly the perfect balance between extremely helpful and kind. He was able to pinpoint my weaknesses and work on what I particularly struggled with in this section. This was my MCAT retake and I thought CARS would be a hopeless section for me, but he turned it into my favorite section. I highly recommend Gabe!!!

Excellent MCAT tutor!

Gabe worked with me to help me develop a solid strategy for taking the CARS - MCAT section. I really feel like I improved in the CARS section thanks to his advice and test-taking tips. Thanks to Gabe, I saw a dramatic improvement in my performance.

Excellent

Went over a passage and Gabe really analyzed how to approach it from the beginning to end. If you are struggling with cars I would suggest him over any Kaplan, next step, Princeton review class.

Amazing Tutor who is patient, kind, and most importantly very knowledgeable

I was very hesitant about working with Gabe at first because I really needed help with CARS and was not sure if anyone could help me in my situation as I’ve tried Princeton and Kaplan and both of those companies’ strategies didn’t help me. After my first lesson and talking to Gabe I realized that he really could help me with CARS! I worked with him for a month and what he does is he first teaches you his method which is really helpful and then he helps guide you and help polish your utilization of the method by working to help analyze with you on what you need to do to improve. However, Gabe isn’t just an amazing CARS tutor but he also can help give you guidance on scheduling, some guidance on how to study for the content on the exam, and most importantly he helps prepare you mentally for the exam. During each of my lessons I spent like 5-10 minutes towards the end just talking about how I was feeling while taking practice tests or while studying and he helps you sort those feelings out and helps prepare you mentally for the exam. I took the exam recently and while I’m not sure how I did, I was really focused, calm, and in the zone during the exam and I don’t know if that would’ve been the case had it not been for Gabe helping me prepare mentally for this exam. He’s also got a really great personality and doesn’t waste your time. He’s always keeping the lesson moving forward and he’s always open to lessons. He’s also very flexible with how you want lessons to go. He never forces a structure of a lesson on you and he is willing to help you in anyway you feel you need help. Also he’s very experienced with the MCAT and fast. Like whenever I ask a question about CARS and stuff, he doesn’t waste time thinking about the answer as he has so much experience with this material that he instantly responds with an answer. Overall, a great tutor and someone to really consider if you’re struggling with CARS.

Gives you practice

Gabe gives you your moneys worth because you get his advice outside of your one-on-one trainings with him. He also has great tips on how to beat approach the MCAT! My practice scores improved by a lot. Thanks, Gabe. <3 I’m confident I’ll do well on my exam.

Very Good Session

Gabe had some very useful advice which I believe would be beneficial for timing issues for the CARS session. It definitely exceeded my expectation since I have been trying to resolve this issue for a very long time. I hope that upcoming sessions will be just as productive. Strongly recommend!

Knows the best way to tackle CARS!

Great CARS tutor! What makes him unique is his video explanations he provides for you, with detailed break down of each passage and how he would approach each question. The AAMC gives really bad explanations, so this really helps identify what mistakes you are making and why. Would highly recommend if your having trouble with CARS or even looking for a solid strategy to both effectively and efficiently tackle each passage!

Patient and kind

Very good at explaining CARS questions and helps you learn the process on your own by listening to you and providing feedback on your process. Really enjoyed my lessons with him and would recommend his method to any of my friends.

Hands-down the best

I was desperately looking for some help to improve my scores in CARS. Before I met Gabe I was getting ~ 65% of the section correct. I tried many different test prep companies' methods and none of them worked. Few of my friends who already got into top medical schools told me to focus on Main Point/Main Idea but also failed. However, Gabe's method really works! His approach does focus on main idea but after having multiple tutoring sessions with him, I realized that I was doing it wrong all along. Now I am getting ~95% of the section correct and feel super confident about CARS. :) Also, I really enjoy working with Gabe. He is very smart, friendly, flexible on scheduling sessions and mindful of your time. Also it was very helpful to use his materials to go over homework on my own. I would highly recommend him to everyone. If you want to stop wasting money and time, and really want to nail down the CARS, he is the person to go.
