About Rekha


Bio

Hello! My name is Rekha, and I recently graduated from Washington University in St. Louis, majoring in Global Health on the pre-med track. I am also in the 3/2 program with the Brown School of Social Work, concentrating in health. I hope to incorporate my skills that I've been learning through the MSW program in my future career as a physician. Although I did not major in a basic science, I still have the skill set necessary to succeed for those on the premed track. I can definitely empathize...

Hello! My name is Rekha, and I recently graduated from Washington University in St. Louis, majoring in Global Health on the pre-med track. I am also in the 3/2 program with the Brown School of Social Work, concentrating in health. I hope to incorporate my skills that I've been learning through the MSW program in my future career as a physician. Although I did not major in a basic science, I still have the skill set necessary to succeed for those on the premed track. I can definitely empathize with the stressors of balancing many activities and life stressors at once while still finding the time to both take care of yourself through the process, but also do what you have to do to get the score you want. I was a Calculus tutor during college and have many helpful tips that I've learned over the past years that I would love to teach and pass on whether it be the MCAT, ACT, or a different assignment. I'm looking forward to helping students get where they want to go and make that dream score be a reality.

I have been a Calculus II tutor for the past three years through the Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL) program at WashU. Math has been my strong suit during my academic career. I enjoy breaking down problems and figuring out where I can best support your learning style to understand how to approach future math problems. I am living proof that someone cannot "naturally" be good at standardized tests, but that you can get through it with the proper focus, hard work/dedication, and support. I would love to support you through your journey to get the scores you want for yourself. Check out my qualifications for the respective subject!

ACT Reading

ACT Reading

This section at the beginning was one of the hardest for me to figure out. Due to this, I have put many efforts into analyzing what I was doing wrong, how to approach passages in a timely fashion, and understand the questions so they make sense to me. If reading is something you don't like to do, I can empathize and help you get through this section and still do well.

Math

ACT Math

ACT Math

Growing up, math has been something that has clicked with me. I recognize that this doesn't click for everyone, so I have been tutoring in math since my high school career. I have 4 plus years of intense math tutoring experience.

Science

ACT Science

ACT Science

The ACT Science section is all about trends, and this is one of my strength when it comes to standardized testing. This was my highest score when I took the ACT, and I can help you work through the problems to see what is clicking, what is not, and evaluate how I can best help you work through problems to feel confident when it comes to test day. Although I did not major in a scientific field, I have taken many science classes and have a strong background for this section.

MCAT

MCAT

I have studied the ins and outs of this exam/question types, and I'm confident I will be able to teach and work with you with your learning style to get to a score you want and are proud of. I've also experienced re-taking this exam and how daunting this can be, but it's possible to improve! My score ended up being a 518 with a break down of 127 in Chem/Phys (129 before), 129 in CARS, 132 in Bio/Biochem, and 130 in Psych/Soc. I also used to hate CARS and kept not understanding how to make this section click with me. Although it wasn't my favorite section, I can definitely help you find new approaches for this section because I have had to do this many times for myself. I know it is known to be the section that gives pre-med students the hardest time, but I'm here to tell you that it is beatable. That being said, I'm also confident in teaching in the other sections as well, as I've consistently scored well in the other three sections.
