About Lucy


Bio

I am a recent graduate of Washington University in Saint Louis with a B.A. in Chemistry and a minor in Computer Science. I took the MCAT after graduation and scored a 524 (100th percentile). I spent my undergrad tutoring students in many subjects, including chemistry, computer science, and physics. I have 4+ yrs of experience in mentoring my peers, and I would love to help you succeed in whatever areas you are struggling, whether that's with a particular MCAT subsection or that one chemistry...

I am a recent graduate of Washington University in Saint Louis with a B.A. in Chemistry and a minor in Computer Science. I took the MCAT after graduation and scored a 524 (100th percentile). I spent my undergrad tutoring students in many subjects, including chemistry, computer science, and physics. I have 4+ yrs of experience in mentoring my peers, and I would love to help you succeed in whatever areas you are struggling, whether that's with a particular MCAT subsection or that one chemistry concept you just can't seem to grasp.

EXPERIENCE: Since I was a chemistry major, I am well-versed in most (if not all) of the different areas of chemistry. Struggling to figure out that organic reaction? Not sure how to draw that Lewis Dot structure? I have been there, and I will share my tips with you to help you be able to accurately answer that next exam question.

My MCAT strategy is two-fold:
PERSONALIZED STUDY PLAN: For every student, I will tailor my approach to match YOUR needs. Not only have I taken the MCAT recently, but I have also researched many of the practice exams out there. I will work on reviewing HIGH-YIELD content with you, and share my strategies to answering those tricky MCAT questions. In addition, I will hold sessions where we will go over practice tests that you have completed problem by problem, giving me a chance to share my MCAT wisdom, and help you to grow more confident and experienced. This is what I believe to be the most valuable part of my service.
EMPATHY: As someone who has recently gone through this studying process, I can fully empathize and understand the journey that you are about to embark on. Considering purchasing additional study materials? I can point you to the best ones for your money. The MCAT can be long and difficult, but I'm here to help make it just a little easier for you.
I pride myself on being responsive by text at almost any hour of the day, and welcome feedback on how to better serve your needs as a peer-tutor. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have questions!

Test Preparation

MCAT,

MCAT

I recently took the MCAT and scored a 524/528 (100th percentile). I was also a chemistry major and physics tutor throughout my undergraduate years, giving me experience in the physical chemistry aspects of the MCAT. Furthermore, I customized an Anki deck for studying high-yield parts of this exam. I reviewed content on a specific schedule and used both AAMC and third-party practice problems and practice tests to achieve a 100th percentile subsection score on the subsections on the MCAT (C/P, B/B, P/S).
