About Shawn


Bio

I am a recent graduate of Washington University in Saint Louis with a B.A. in Biochemistry. I took the MCAT after graduation and scored 523/528 (100th percentile). Since then, I have worked over 2000 hours as a full-time tutor/mentor, including MCAT tutoring. Simply put, I know the MCAT inside out and thoroughly enjoy near-peer tutoring, and I would love to use my study approach to help you achieve success on this step of your pre-med journey!

I am a recent graduate of Washington University in Saint Louis with a B.A. in Biochemistry. I took the MCAT after graduation and scored 523/528 (100th percentile). Since then, I have worked over 2000 hours as a full-time tutor/mentor, including MCAT tutoring. Simply put, I know the MCAT inside out and thoroughly enjoy near-peer tutoring, and I would love to use my study approach to help you achieve success on this step of your pre-med journey!

For each student, I create lessons that are tailored to your needs and provide flexible support to push you to your highest potential. The core facets of my MCAT tutoring approach are:

High-Yield Content Teaching: Studying for the MCAT can be a daunting task because of the sheer breadth of topics covered, but over time I’ve gotten to know topics for each subject that seem to show up on every test. My lessons for each of these topics will really help to shore up some foundational knowledge for success.

Practice-Based Growth Strategy: This is the CORE reason why me and my students are able to succeed on the MCAT — to be able to learn content details and test-taking strategies IN CONTEXT works wonders towards being able to approach every passage and every problem with confidence. As someone who has recently taken nearly every practice test out there, I will help you to create an efficient and effective schedule based on a practice-centered approach. Furthermore, I will hold sessions where we go over your completed practice tests problem by problem, sharing the MCAT tidbits I have learned over time and building up your own expertise. This, in my opinion, is the best resource that I provide.

Comprehensive Support: As a near-peer who has recently lived and breathed the MCAT, I can definitely empathize and share my tips for every little facet of this long, long test. Can’t figure out that one frustrating detail about p-V graphs? I’ll boil down my own hours of research on it into a ten minute explanation for you. Wondering which AAMC resources are most helpful? I’ll save you from wasting your time on the less effective ones. Need some pre-practice test pump up songs? I have my playlist ready.

Taking the MCAT is definitely a journey, but success is at the end, and I’d love to be a resource for you.

Excellent MCAT tutor

Shawn's personalized teaching is so valuable. I am gaining insights on how to solve CARS and knowing what is important in MCAT. Would strongly recommend to anyone doing MCAT prep, even if you taking other courses.

Susan , 8 lessons with Shawn

Knowledgeable and efficient tutor.

Shawn is an excellent tutor for AP Chemistry. He has greatly helped my daughter with the most challenging issues in this subject. He follows up and makes sure she understands everything. Very reliable tutor.

Great Mcat tutor

Shawn is great! He takes his time to go over any issues I might have and problem spots concerning MCAT material. Shawn is a very knowledgeable and professional tutor and I would recommend him highly!

Steve, 10 lessons with Shawn

Genius with a generous heart!

Shawn was my son’s early Christmas gift as he helped him study for a final at the 11th hour and gave him a giant boost when he was sick and run down going into his exam. Shawn is a superstar tutor and confidence booster that is worth the double rate. We will be setting up more time next semester in advance this time!

Great 1st session with Shawn

I look forward to future sessions, too soon to tell, but I believe that it will be a good fit. He is flexible, patient and accommodating. He shows up to sessions very prepared and makes the most of the session. I started prepping this week and using his question log and I will be doing my first practice test this weekend.
