Hello! My name is Kurren P. and I'm a recent graduate from the Pennsylvania State University. I graduated magna cum laude with a degree in neuroscience and am currently applying to medical school. During the year I work for the National Institutes of Health, studying addictive disorders and different methodologies of treatment. I've tutored students all throughout high school and college, specifically focusing in the scientific disciplines.

Outside of school and tutoring, I'm a personal trainer and love biking, swimming, hiking, and running! If you have any questions regarding my qualifications or my background, please don't hesitate to reach out. I hope to talk with you soon!

I've completed all AP science courses, as well as extensive upper level courses in college. My university coursework was filled with over 100 credit hours in biology, anatomy, chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, and psychology. On top of this, I served as a lecture assistant for organic chemistry, tutored students in chemistry and biology, and started a teaching program within my school to aid those struggling with coursework.

I have recently taken my MCAT exam and scored in the ~90th percentile. Throughout my studies, I spent over 400 hours learning the material, completing practice questions and exams, and helping other students along the way. The MCAT is an important part of the medical school application process, and my experience with the exam will allow me to help other students achieve the goals they're looking for!

I would love to speak with you regarding my experience and ability to cater towards your specific needs. I'm happy to complete a meeting session for free in order to make sure we would be the right fit. Please don't hesitate to reach out!

MCAT

I took the MCAT and scored in the ~90th percentile in March of 2020. I spent over 400 hours just studying and practicing, as well tutoring other students struggling with content. With my degree in neuroscience, as well as my recent experience with the exam, I am ready to help students progress with their own struggles.

Amazing resource! Excellent at breaking complicated subjects down.

Kurren has helped me with Cell Bio and Chemistry so far. I love the way he breaks down complicated subject matter into an easy to understand explanation. Highly recommend!

Danielle, 9 lessons with Kurren

Patient and enthusiastic tutor

Kurren is super AWESOME!! The first time we met we laid down the ground rules as in how I would feel comfortable and how he usually teaches his students. Every session I have had with him, he has gone over all the concepts and problems I have a questions about and even helps me realize that there may be some content that I think I know but don't really know. He has a great grip on all the topics and is very patient in explaining anything that I feel unsure with. I recommend Kurren a hundred percent!!

Great tutor

Kurren has been tutoring my 15 year old in Chemistry for 3 weeks now. My son feels more confident, he is understanding concepts better, his grades are improving, and he is really enjoying his lessons. I highly recommend him!

Best Chem Tutor out there

When I started to take this course, I was really struggling and had very little hope for passing. Because of Kurren, I have boosted up my grade a whole letter point. He is patient, methodical, and will make sure that the topic is completely understood, and I can preform the problems with ease. He is able to quiz you, give examples, reliable sites, and lectures on any topic in chem. Beyond all of that he is a very good person, and extremely kind.

Best Tutor!!

Kurren and I have been having sessions for almost over two months now and he is by far the BEST. His patience, knowledge, and mentorship has exceeded my expectations. I originally reached out to him for CARS help but he has been able to help me in every subject. His attention and care really is unmatched. He is always on time and consistent. I have become more confident in my answer choices and have been improving in all the MCAT sections since starting with Kurren. 10/10!!

Great tutor

Kurren helped me with some problems I had in my Chemistry 2 class. He does a great job of making sure you understand concepts and goes through the problems with you. I liked that he would ask if I comprehended throughout the problems to fill any gaps in my knowledge. Overall I would recommend Kurren!

Insightful and Intelligent!

Worked with Kurren for my MCAT Tutoring. I was looking for a tutor primarily for my CARS section, but he provided me with a lot of helpful study strategies and test-taking skills in all the other science sections as well, including P/S, B/B and C/P. What I enjoyed most about Kurren's tutoring style was that he made the sessions very personalized to me. I have taken Kaplan and other group sessions in the past, but those were incredibly expensive and only provided generalized tips. Kurren worked with me on strategies to help my biggest weakness, shortening the time I take. He had creative suggestions of ways that I could practice and really hone in on my issues, and I haven't found those suggestions elsewhere. Solid tutor for any point of your studying, and whether for the MCAT or another subject!

Great MCAT Tutor!

Me and Kurren went over the CARS section on the MCAT, and I feel much more confident moving forward even after one lesson. He's very cooperative and understands the material at a very high level.

BRANDON, 16 lessons with Kurren

Great!!! tutor very knowledgeable! highly recommend

Kurren was great! I received an A on every assignment he helped me on in my Anatomy class (college level), now i'm in physiology and he is doing it again! lol more A's. He breaks down each topic in simple terms by using daily activities in correlation to the class. Very patient, respectful, understanding, caring, and just seem like a really nice guy. I would recommend him to anyone, who wants an honest tutor, with integrity and that take pride in their work!
