I work along side a tutor who has scored in the 99th percentile on the MCAT. I have previously taught community college courses on anatomy, psychology and sociology. I also have extensive training the most current memorization and learning techniques. My role in MCAT training is to ensure that students are converting what they hear in their lessons into a permanent knowledge base and skill set
I've taught anatomy and physiology at the college level. Currently, tutoring for the MCAT is my full time position. I specialize in teaching Biology/Biochem and Psych/Soc sectins of the exams.
I receive requests from all over the country, so I usually teach using online meeting software. The software allows me to talk to you and you talk to me (with our voices), and we see and work the same problems together using a slide show and drawing board. I've taught in classrooms, over the kitchen table, and I have to say that the online experience is by far the best. We cover more material faster, it's much more convenient for our schedules, and I can email you PDFs of all of the problems that we did. You can also record our session so you can watch them again and again for free.
My lessons are structured and thorough. I issue pre-lesson home work, and follow-up homework, and I offer unlimited email support on those assignments at no additional cost. Be prepared to work hard and score high.

Hailee worked with me on the CARS and Psych/Soc sections of the MCAT. Both her and her husband, Regan, have been second to none in their instruction. With my test being in 2 days, I have worked with them for the past 4 months and feel nothing but confident and prepared. They are extremely helpful, understanding, harsh when needed, and real - just like any great teacher and mentor. They are really good at pinpointing your weaknesses and helping you to build on them. I give them my strongest recommendation for anyone looking for help on any standardized test that they teach. My Fiance used Regan for the GMAT and scored in the top 75% and is now accepted into the number one school in the world for her program. She accredits her success with the help of Hailee and Regan. Thanks Hailee!
She always makes sure to make the most out of our lessons. Hailee also makes sure I understand why I got a question wrong or right so I know the differences. I love how at the end of our lessons I am able to go back and teach it to someone else. Each time I meet with Hailee I know what I'm learning is going to stick. It's a great feeling because I know she really cares about my progress as her student.
I first learned of Hailee through a friend of mine. At that time, I was wrestling through either self-studying for the MCAT or taking a course. I ended up deciding that, although I felt like I did not need a class (which are expensive and not individualized), it would be helpful to have some "coaches" help me on my journey through this exam. Also, my friend did very well on his MCAT, and had only good things to say about Hailee, and so I decided to go for it.
Hailee focuses on the CARS and Psych/Soc sections of the MCAT. These sections are somewhat different in that they are, perhaps, the backbone of the MCAT. Let me explain myself: the MCAT is a passage-based exam. Since these two sections (especially CARS) Hailee focuses on are rooted in reading comprehension, excelling at these sections sets you up with the tools to succeed in the more hard-science oriented sections. If you have difficulty reading, the MCAT is going to be a monster. Therefore, Hailee's focused coaching on "reading style" can literally make or break your exam experience. You might be a master of chemistry and biology, but if you cannot read efficiently and meaningfully, you simply will not succeed at the MCAT (or at least not to your fullest potential). As such, the service she offers is of incredible value.
Long story short, about five months after first beginning serious work with Hailee, I got my score back. It was better than I could have ever hoped for: a 520 (98%). I don't share this score with many people, as I never want to come off as gloating or anything. But, I felt I should here, as it is largely in part due to the coaching and support that she offered to me through this process.
And, most important, I now count her, as well as her husband, both as my friends. They are fantastic people, and I was astonished by just how many meaningful conversations we had outside of simply tutoring. I aim to stay in touch with them, and truly believe that they can help you in your testing journey.
Hailee is helping me prepare for the CARS section of the MCAT. She is super understanding and helpful. She simplifies the passages and explains patterns in questions types. She introduced a different way of approaching CARS and it makes the passages less intimidating. The techniques she is teaching me are much more effective than the prep course I am currently taking.
Hailee was great to work with during my time prepping for the Mcat. She is very patient and helps you to develop new techniques to improve your scores. She really takes the time to explain things as well. You won't be disappointed if you work with her.
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.
I've scored in the 99th percentile on the Biology, Biochem, and Psych and Soc sections on practice exams. I've also taught anatomy and physiology at the community college level. Additionally, I've mastered several memorization techniques that can be readily applied to almost any subject
