About Scott


Bio

I have directed a medical research program for the past 10 years where I train students individually at all levels (high school through MD/PhD students). My research mentoring comprises personalized one-on-one interactions to teach textbook principles, research project development and experimentation, and research writing. I have tutored dozens of students through MCAT subjects where I can explain the scientific concepts but also provide test taking tips to improve your score.

I have directed a medical research program for the past 10 years where I train students individually at all levels (high school through MD/PhD students). My research mentoring comprises personalized one-on-one interactions to teach textbook principles, research project development and experimentation, and research writing. I have tutored dozens of students through MCAT subjects where I can explain the scientific concepts but also provide test taking tips to improve your score.

I draw on nearly 20 years of research experience to provide concrete examples of concepts that can be difficult to grasp when reading the textbook. I am patient and understand different people learn in different ways. I can present and discuss scientific concepts from many different angles to help you understand in the way that you learn best.

I have extensive experience mentoring in MCAT subjects with my tutoring specialties being in cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology, and chemistry (general chemistry and physical chemistry), pharmacology and genetics.

Whether you're looking to improve your MCAT score, pass a test, or just learn more about science, I'm eager to help you out. I look forward to hearing from you!

MCAT

I have 10+ years of experience in 1-on-1 mentoring dozens of undergrad and master's students on all MCAT topics, but am especially interested in helping students increase CARS scores. CARS is a completely different section on the exam, but every bit as important!! I understand how grueling of an exam the MCAT is and you need every advantage you can get! I have dedicated substantial time to mastering the CARS section and effectively tutoring how to improve your CARS score.

Review of a scientific manuscript

We reviewed a complex manuscipt. Scott was very able to readily explain and explicate difficult concepts and make them easily understandable. I would recomend hias a first rate tutor for molecular biology and genetics.

Walter, 1 lesson with Scott

Amazing Tutor

Excellent tutor. Always responsive and kind to the student. Very effective at explaining difficult concepts. Son really enjoys his sessions with Scott.

Stella, 5 lessons with Scott

Patient, Caring, and Fun

Scott was very easy to talk to and always had some great explanations and examples for the questions I had with my Intro to Biology college course. He made sure I had a solid understanding of each question by utilizing the whiteboards, diagrams, and many real world examples. As a woman meeting with an unknown male tutor 1:1 can feel stressful or worrisome, but Scott made me feel comfortable and safe in the environment. I had no problem asking questions or interrupting. I will be back. Thank You Scott!

Jasmine, 3 lessons with Scott

Very knowledgeable, invested in his students

Scott is a fantastic tutor who is incredibly knowledgeable in science and invested in those he tutors. I don't think I would have passed advanced pathophysiology if it weren't for Scott!

Victoria, 4 lessons with Scott

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Scott helped me study heart anatomy and the coronary arteries. He was very clear and patient with showing me how to recognize complicated vessel systems. Overall very helpful :). I am planning working with Scott again for further human anatomy tutoring.

Chris, 2 lessons with Scott

Awesome tutor--totally recommend!

Scott was super helpful with my Biochemistry class. We spent time going over glycolysis, the citric acid cycle, and electron transport chain. All of this was really confusing to me and Scott was really patient. He guided me through everything step by step and came up with lots of different ways to explain things to make sure I understood. Would definitely take more lessons with Scott!

Julie, 8 lessons with Scott

Amazingly knowledgeable, friendly, and patient

Dr. Scott was amazing helping me understand things about chemistry that I just couldn't get before. I was really worried about my summer school chemistry class and felt like my head was spinning. Dr. Scott was really good at calming me, identifying exactly what it was that was causing me to not understand chemistry, and helping me to understand. He was really encouraging and made me feel like I will make it through the class! Can't wait to take more lessons from Dr. Scott.

John, 3 lessons with Scott

Excellent Tutor with High Level of Experience and Patience

After only our initial consultation, it's clear that Dr. Scott is a great tutor. I do not have a strong science background and Dr. Scott was very patient and creative in finding ways to help me understand my material. He really made my textbook come to life. I look forward to additional sessions with him.
