Prior to teaching on Wyzant, Leon has had years of experience as a tutor with a large tutoring company. He primarily taught for the MCAT, which he scored in the top 100th percentile (525). The breakdown of his score was (130/132/131/132). While working with students from start to finish, he begins by creating a customized study schedule. Typically this study schedule has three phases: 1. Content Review + Strategy, 2. Practice + Advanced Strategy, 3. Assessment and Review. He is particularly adept at tutoring for the CARS section which he attained a perfect score in. Past students of his has noted that they have increased their CARS section score up to 5+ points just through his strategy coaching. Generally, students have seen about an overall ~10 point increase in MCAT score through tutoring sessions.

He does not credit high test scores to a natural aptitude for test taking; rather, his philosophy is that most people are capable of top scores with a strategic approach to test taking. He understands the logic of the standardized exams and knows the exact scope which the exams will test. With this targeted approach, he ensures that you will get the most out of the time you spend studying.

Leon has taken the MCAT twice, first scoring in the top 95th percentile (517 composite score, 130/127/129/131), then in the top 100th percentile (525 composite score, 130/132/131/132). Most notably, his CARS score increased from a 127 (82nd percentile) to a perfect 132. Between the two sittings, he has personally experimented with the multitude of strategies that are available and has distilled what works into a cohesive strategy. Leon breaks down the methods that are the most effective in improving in the CARS section without the use of any gimmicks.

Having acted as a TA for upper-level biochemistry coursework and completing masters coursework in Biomedical Sciences, Leon not only has a deep understanding of the science material that is tested on the MCAT, but also is proficient in teaching the materials to others.

Leon is extremely flexible with scheduling and teach through a variety of platforms both online (Skype, Zoom, etc) and in-person.
