Hi, I'm Richard! I recently graduated with two bachelor's degrees: a BS in Biology and a BA in Finance. I'm also an IB Diploma recipient and an AP Scholar.

My tutoring services focus on helping students conquer standardized exams. Over the past year, I've tutored many students, helping them to reach their full academic potential and getting them one step closer towards admission into the school of their dreams.

I have personal experience taking and scoring well on the MCAT (100th percentile), SAT (95th percentile), and ACT (96th percentile). In my lessons, I pass along the same successful strategies I used to take these exams.

I believe the foundation of doing well on any exam is a strong knowledge base coupled with an excellent time management strategy and the confidence to execute that strategy.

In my experience, standardized tests LOVE to try to trick you using confusing wording. Together, we'll solidify your knowledge base through active learning and guided practice, making sure you understand each topic in full and empowering you to see through the test maker's clever traps. We'll also work on time management strategy-- it's hard to score well if you run out of time and can't finish! We'll build your confidence in your own abilities and ensure you have time to answer every question.

Many students have incredibly hectic schedules and their time to study is limited. We'll create a customized plan to help you manage your time and direct your efforts towards the most important topics.

Studying for these tests is a journey, and I'd like to be there to guide you every step of the way. I welcome any and all inquiries. I'm here to help in any way I can!

Test Preparation

MCAT,

MCAT

I took the MCAT last summer and scored in the 100th percentile (525: 130/132/131/132). Since taking the exam, I've taught others how to replicate my success - two of my students even beat my score (525+)!! Most often my students show significant improvement in the CARS section after working with me; let me teach you how I got a perfect score in that section! Let's be honest- the MCAT is challenging. Given that the exam covers so much information, it's important to understand where your time can be most beneficial. Having tried many of the popular review companies (Kaplan, Examkrackers and others), I know which methods are useful and which ones are a waste of your time. I also developed a system to pinpoint which concepts I needed to focus on- I'll share this technique with you and work through the areas where you can show the most improvement. With so much riding on the result of one test, it's crucial to use every resource available. Studying for this test is a long journey, and I'd like to be there to guide you every step of the way! Chemistry/Physics: 130 (97th percentile) CARS: 132 (100th percentile) Biology/Biochemistry: 131 (99th percentile) Psychology/Sociology: 132 (100th percentile)
