About Will

Hi! I'm Will. I graduated summa cum laude from Kutztown University with a degree in Biology, and will be starting medical school at Pitt Med in Fall 2017. I love learning about science (especially biology and medicine), and sharing that knowledge with others. I have 4 years of experience as a tutor, and was an Undergraduate Teaching Assistant for 5 different science courses (total 1300+ hours tutoring experience). I also completed two summers of research experience at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, and have worked as an EMT.

I scored a near-perfect 526 out of 528 (100th percentile: 130/132/132/132) on the new MCAT. I did extensive research on the new MCAT exam format, and can guide you using the same high-yield resources and strategies that I used to get my near-perfect score. As your tutor, I can provide you with 1-on-1 instruction to help you work through difficult MCAT problems. I encourage my students to think critically and will teach you how to use your content knowledge to its fullest extent. We can also discuss test-taking strategies such as how to eliminate answer choices or passage timing, plan your optimal study schedule, and pick the prep materials that are the best fit for you.

I ensure that every minute we spend together is high value, and I provide continuous, constructive feedback. I am very patient and will find a tutoring method that works best for YOU! In addition to tutoring for the MCAT, I can provide the same great instruction for medical school admissions and interview counseling, as well as help review and edit application essays! I was accepted to 3 other US MD programs in addition to Pitt Med.


I have also partnered with two other excellent tutors on WyzAnt to offer daily MCAT group sessions! The group is designed to be a more affordable and effective method for learning and reviewing MCAT content. These sessions are typically 30m long, online, and recorded so that students can review the video (as well as access other MCAT study resources) at their convenience. Each lesson is interactive and allows students to ask questions and participate. All of the sections of the new MCAT are covered, with me as your tutor for CARS! The MCAT group rate is currently $100/month.

Test Preparation:
MCAT

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 scored a 526 (100th percentile, 130/132/132/132) on the new MCAT and have hundreds of hours of MCAT tutoring experience. I was also accepted to 4 MD programs for those interested in admissions counseling.

Stellar MCAT tutor

I tutored with Will for about 3-4 months leading up to my most recent MCAT, and looking back on it, I couldn't have found a better person to work with throughout the whole process. From our first session, I could tell that Will was extremely bright, attentive and engaging, and I had confidence that he would help me achieve a competitive score. In particular, I really appreciated Will's level of in
