About Keith


Bio

Hello, my name is Keith, I am currently a 4th year medical student, with a Bachelors in biochemistry and a masters in pharmacology, both from Michigan State University. I scored in the 99th percentile on the MCAT: 519 ( 129, 130, 129, 131). I was self taught and did not take any classes, but strictly adhered to a 3.5 month schedule using a combination of Berkeley Review, Kaplan, and AAMC resources. I have had similar success on Step1/2 with 270+ on both exams. I tutored MCAT, ACT, and STEM...

Hello, my name is Keith, I am currently a 4th year medical student, with a Bachelors in biochemistry and a masters in pharmacology, both from Michigan State University. I scored in the 99th percentile on the MCAT: 519 ( 129, 130, 129, 131). I was self taught and did not take any classes, but strictly adhered to a 3.5 month schedule using a combination of Berkeley Review, Kaplan, and AAMC resources. I have had similar success on Step1/2 with 270+ on both exams. I tutored MCAT, ACT, and STEM fields for 3 years in New York City while I studied leukemia at Memorial Sloan Kettering. I have since moved back to the Midwest, but find tutoring and teaching very rewarding, and want to stay involved through online tutoring to help others succeed, get into medical school, and be outstanding physicians.
For each of my students, whether it is their first time taking it or they are hoping to increase their score, I am to develop a personalized study plan based on their time constraints, goals, and extracurricular obligations. I provide resources and mentoring to help master content as well as develop study strategies, Afterwards, we typically go through applications, revise essays, and I help fine tune personal statements based on the students strengths and how they align with the schools they are applying to. My additional experience with ACT and SAT tutoring has helped me give students tools and strategies for success on standardized tests, which they can carry beyond the MCAT and into STEP 1. My greatest student scored a 523 there first time, and the student with the greatest improvement went up 11 points, distributed across all sections.
I am able to break down abstract topics and help the student understand nuts and bolts of a concept, working from the ground up, from a first principles understanding to see the big picture. Getting past brute force memorization and encouraging the students to connect ideas, in my experience, leads to better long term retention.

I am a 4th year medical student with 5 years of experience tutoring the MCAT, one year of Step 1 tutoring, and a few months of step 2 tutoring, with scores in 270+ for both. I have tutored 3rd year medical students on the Shelf exams. I'm able to help you create schedule, with day to day assignments and study plan, while working on questions together, improving content mastery, and working on test taking skills.

Patient, thorough tutor

I worked with Keith on MCAT preparation. He goes above and beyond to help you no matter your subject mastery level. He went as far as to create a schedule plan for each day up until my test date, which definitely eased my nerves as I was new to MCAT prep. During lessons, went through some tough sample problems to get me familiar with the subject material on the MCAT. Very kind and patient. He was willing to answer any questions I had and broke down difficult topics using modern examples. Couldn’t recommend him enough!
