You'll then be on track to accomplishing your goals!

I have been preparing students for the MCAT both in large classroom classes and one-on-one tutoring sessions since 2007. I am a surgical resident and enjoy bringing clinical examples to the study of monotonous science in order to make things click. As a certified teacher with a Master's in Education, I also take into account your personal learning style while helping you to tackle the science that seems daunting.

Let's work together to accomplish your goals!

Biostatistics

I have taken courses in biostatistics in both undergraduate and medical school. I did well in the classes, but where I can benefit students the most is in my practical application of statistics to my research projects as it provides concrete examples of when to use each statistical test and what the results mean. This unique and practical way of approaching statistics one on one with students is beneficial.

Great Tutor

I conducted 4-5 lessons with Austin. I went up 3 points on my MCAT with my own studying and by studying with him.

Colin, 3 lessons with Austin

Great MCAT Tutor

Austin was an irreplaceable resource in my mostly self-study MCAT preparation. He was instrumental in explaining a wide range of topics that weren't covered in my pre-med courses, and did so in a very patient and thorough manner. I felt much more confident going into the test thanks to his help, and achieved my score goals on the first try.

Great tutor with a lot of knowledge!

I really enjoy Austin as a tutor because he knows what he's talking about and he understands how stressful the MCAT can be. He helped me create a plan for tackling the next 12 weeks, and I'm excited to continue working with him. I think my score will improve tremendously with his help!
