About Jieming

I graduated from Johns Hopkins in 2015 with honors as a premedical and biomedical engineering student. Rather than apply to med school right away, I moved to New York to take time off in order to pursue my Master's at Columbia before matriculating to medical school.

The MCAT changed in 2015 and there is a lot of misinformation on the internet as a result. Tutors and test companies such as Princeton Review and Kaplan alike have been slow to adapt to the changes, and often fail to emphasize what is really tested. Misconceptions abound about what is really tested - as a premed student myself until quite recently, I understand that with limited time you cannot afford to spend it preparing for what will not be on the test. Unlike most other tutors, I took the new MCAT myself in May 2015 and scored a 526, a 100th percentile score.

I have over 5 years of experience tutoring standardized tests including the SAT, ACT, and SAT II through a test-prep agency, as well as over 1000 hours tutoring for national nonprofits. I have helped dozens of students over five years pass standardized tests. I used my experience helping others prepare for tests to prepare myself for the MCAT, with only a book, resources freely available online, and my own dedication and hard work. I know my strategies work not only because of the high scores my students have achieved, but because these are the exact same strategies I used to get the 526.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

MCAT

I am one of only a handful of available tutors who have actually taken the new MCAT, and scored a 526, which is a 100th percentile score. I have over 5 years of experience teaching standardized tests, from SAT to ACT to MCAT, and went through the premedical track myself. I believe my coursework background (including 4 years of coursework in biology, physiology, psychology, biochemistry, and related subjects at Johns Hopkins University), my extensive experience with standardized testing, and my direct experience studying for and achieving a 100th percentile score make me uniquely qualified to tutor the new MCAT. A copy of my score report is available on request.
