About Philip


Bio

I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh as a University Scholar, meaning I was ranked in the top two percent of students at the University. In addition to that award, I received the Chancellor's Undergraduate Research Fellowship and an Outstanding Intern Award for research I completed as an intern at the Asthma, Allergy, and Autoimmunity Institute of Allegheny Health Network. I also recently took the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) and scored in the 99th percentile.

I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh as a University Scholar, meaning I was ranked in the top two percent of students at the University. In addition to that award, I received the Chancellor's Undergraduate Research Fellowship and an Outstanding Intern Award for research I completed as an intern at the Asthma, Allergy, and Autoimmunity Institute of Allegheny Health Network. I also recently took the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) and scored in the 99th percentile.

I tutored high school students in all subjects while I was an undergraduate. I also served as a teaching assistant for an upper level human physiology class at the University of Pittsburgh. During my junior and senior years I served as a lead organic chemistry lab instructor. This required me to not only teach students, but to evaluate and grade their assignments. Through this process, I have learned how to effectively help others improve their own work.

I volunteered at Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh which gave me experience working with students of all ages. I have an understanding that each student is unique and requires a specific teaching style. I have learned to mold my teaching accordingly by being particularly attentive to the learning style of each individual student.

I have completed research in evolutionary biology, developmental biology, and cellular biology. This enables me to provide my students with real world examples of the material they are learning to help them thoughtfully engage the material and make connections between subjects. I am currently researching at the National Institute of Health and hope to help others find the joy in science.

MCAT

MCAT

I recently took the MCAT and scored a 521 which is in the 99th percentile. I successfully completed a biology degree from the University of Pittsburgh with a 3.97 GPA. Not only have I clearly mastered all of the content tested on this exam, but I can equip others with memorization tools that may help make test day a little easier.

Excellent!

Phil is an amazing resource to discuss your plan for preparing for the MCAT. He was very responsive, provided excellent guidance for my specific needs, and made great, efficient use of our time. Highly recommend him!

Great MCAT tutor!

Philip was super knowledgable and very helpful! He recently took the MCAT and has a lot of great advice about how to study and where to find good study material. I would definitely recommend meeting with him.

Helpful and Very Reliable

I've been struggling in chemistry for a while and only learn by repeating everything multiple times. Phil was very patient with me and helped me understand concepts in a whole new and easier way. He reviewed all the material before we met just to be sure he knew exactly how to help. If I need to contact him, he always replies very quickly which is so helpful. I'd definitely recommend him to other students!
