## Best MCAT Course you can sign up for

Bisher, 28 lessons with Cara MarieWhen I first tried to study for the MCAT; I was overwhelmed with the amount of material I had to deal with, jumping back and forth between topics, and failing to apply the content I learned to practice passages. This was until I accidentally came across Cara Marie’s profile and learned about the MCAT group she runs; I decided to give it a try and sign up and by all means I can say it was the BEST DECISION I EVER MADE! The MCAT is a beast in nature; and working through it will require not...

I've been tutoring high school, college students and adult life-long learners for the past 10 years, in a variety of math and science subjects. In college, I was a math major and I've continued to successfully tutor students in everything from Algebra I to Calculus I, II, Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra and Differential Equations. For math majors looking for extra help, advanced math is also one of my specialties.

I also have a PhD in biochemistry. I've taught in a classroom...

Proofreading
#### Proofreading

I can absolutely help you proofread and edit your papers (high school, college and graduate) and college application essays. I look at papers for content, grammar, punctuation, word choice and structure.
For topics that I'm familiar with (literature, English, any of the sciences), I can help construct the arguments and analyze the flow and structure of the overlying argument.

For reading, I teach students the tricks of the trade, and make sure they understand what TYPES of questions the ACT asks and how what aspects of the passage to focus on while reading.

Biochemistry,
#### Biochemistry

Biochemistry is my specialty. My PhD is in biochemistry, and I've well-versed and trained in the subject. I take great pride in my ability to break down very difficult biochemical concepts into manageable material. With biochemistry students, my job is to take the extraordinary amount of detail professors throw at you, and turn it into an understandable package of material. I am great at working with concepts, but I also can help you work through your problem sets, even difficult ones. I'm not intimidated by even the most difficult problems! My goal is to make biochemistry a fun and enjoyable experience.

#### Genetics

As a biology major and as a biochemist, I've taken formal courses in Genetics at both the undergrad and graduate level. I've TAed undergraduate genetics and I've successfully tutored undergrad genetics multiple times. Check out my genetics "Answers" on the WyzAnt Answers page!

Organic Chemistry,
#### Organic Chemistry

Organic chemistry is another one of my specialties. I was an organic chemistry teaching assistant (which included one hour per week of teaching it in a classroom to college undergraduates) for multiple years. I'm skilled with both organic chemistry 1 and 2.
I take great pride in my ability to break down very difficult organic reactions into the basic concepts. With organic students, I try to take all of the reactions, and abstract the general principles so that students can understand any reaction they're given. Organic chemistry does not have to be awful! My goal is to make it a fun and enjoyable experience.
For more info on how I approach organic chemistry, see Kim's feedback on my feedback page.

Physiology
#### Physiology

I've studied A&P at the college and graduate level, have taught MCAT Physiology and physiology for graduate students studying physiology and medicine.

MCAT,
#### MCAT

MCAT is hands, down, the subject that I tutor most frequently. I target the test-taking and scientific analysis skills required to succeed on the MCAT through a mix of problems, scientific literature and passage analysis. I am well-versed in teaching any of the sciences covered on the exam - General chemistry, Organic chemistry, Biochemistry, Physics and Biology.
I also run a daily MCAT group that is designed to target the highest yield topics on the MCAT. Each group session is 30 mins long, online and recorded so that students can review the video at their convenience; the teaching is interactive and students can ask questions during the mini-lecture. In addition, to cover the psychology/sociology portion of the exam and the CARS section of the exam, I've partnered with two amazing tutors who teach group sessions on Psych/Soc material and the CARS material covered by the MCAT.
During group, we are constantly reviewing high yield MCAT material and teaching in the way the AAMC tests the topics. We often have more than 2-3 MCAT topics being covered each day in group and sessions are unlimited. All of the study materials you need are also provided, including textbooks, practice problems, review books and practice passages.
I also do one-on-one tutoring for the Chem/Phys and Bio/Biochem portions of the exam, but the group is designed to be affordable, personalized and a great way to keep MCAT material fresh until your test day!

Regents,
