About Dimitry


Bio

I am a medical student at the UNC Chapel Hill School of Medicine. To get to this point, I had to battle through the difficult pre-med life, including the MCAT. I understand many of the struggles students face on on the pre-med path. I did well on the exam through hard work and by using a distinct set of successful strategies. Now, I want to help YOU succeed and get to this point too.

I am a medical student at the UNC Chapel Hill School of Medicine. To get to this point, I had to battle through the difficult pre-med life, including the MCAT. I understand many of the struggles students face on on the pre-med path. I did well on the exam through hard work and by using a distinct set of successful strategies. Now, I want to help YOU succeed and get to this point too.

Pre-med life is often lacking in support and mentorship. I don't believe that should be the case. As a tutor, I am here to support you with all of my knowledge and experience. I genuinely want you to succeed and for your hard work to pay off.

I have also been a TA for Anatomy & Physiology for over 2 years and a pre-med peer mentor at my university for just as long. These experiences have taught me a lot about how to be a better instructor and tutor/mentor. In my senior year of college, I won a Chancellor's Award for my teaching in A&P. I was nominated for the award by my students.

I can tutor all MCAT sections, but CARS is the one I tutor the most often. I have plenty of prepared MCAT resources and practice and am looking forward to working with you on your journey to that high score you desire!

MCAT

Qualifications: I took the MCAT in September of 2019 and scored a 520 (98th percentile). Now, all of the experience I have gained through painstaking trial and error is at your disposal so that you have the best possible chance of getting the score you want! I have hundreds of hours of tutoring experience in my college community and I am excited to branch out on Wyzant! I have also been a TA and peer mentor for anatomy and physiology for over 4 semesters! My Methodology: I provide an individualized approach to all students, wherever you are at in your studies. For those just starting their review, I help create study plans and highlight the best study resources out of the overwhelming amount out there. For those who know what they need help with, I provide the necessary content review and support. For all students, I offer personalized services to understand and address THEIR needs and areas to improve. Once identified, these needs guide all of our future sessions as we work to systematically address all areas of potential improvement.

Great tutor

Great tutor. He provided good strategies to study for exam. I will continue to use him to help in particular with the CARS section. Will also recommend him to my other pre-med friends.

Van, 2 lessons with Dimitry

Amazing very knowledgeable and patient

Dimitry is an amazing tutor who takes valuable time to explain and go over personalized strategies! Even after only a few lessons I have learned so much and improved. I highly recommend Dimitry as a tutor for the MCAT!

Jaina, 5 lessons with Dimitry

Smart and resourceful tutor.

Dimitry teaches a lot of great strategies that save time and help me learn to pinpoint all the necessary details and information required to answer questions. He has a unique take on how to do content review, which both boosts efficiency and saves time while also learning to get into the minds of those who write the MCAT through repetition.

Patient, Knowledgeable, and Responsive!

I have taken three lessons thus far, and I picked up techniques which clearly are improving my methods for approaching CARS, and spilling over in the science passages. Confidently, I recommend (Dr.!) Dimitry for improving passage-based techniques for test day!

Knowledgeable, Skilled, and Patient MCAT Tutor

Dimitry has been my MCAT tutor for about one month or so and I can already see the positive difference in my practice question results! His strategy of working through practice questions with me is effective because he makes sure that I understand why I missed a question or on the other hand, answered it correctly. This approach is beneficial because it ensures that I can back up my answers. Additionally, he’s very competent and I’m sure that any student will benefit from his tutoring sessions.
