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 in Fall 2017. I have so far been accepted to 4 US MD programs. I love learning about science (especially biology and medical science), and sharing that knowledge with others. I have 3 years of experience as a tutor, and was an Undergraduate Teaching Assistant for 5 different science courses (total 1000+ hours tutoring experience). I also have 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 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 discuss test-taking strategies such as how to eliminate answer choices or passage timing, plan your optimal study schedule, pick the prep materials that are the best fit for you, and review difficult content topics.

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 high school or college biology courses, and medical school admissions and interview counseling as well as help review and edit application essays!

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.

Biology

I graduated from Kutztown University with a degree in Biology and finished with an overall GPA of 3.84. I received a Biology Department Outstanding Student Award and was the TA for Genetics, Biology for Bio majors, and Biology for non-majors. I will be attending medical school starting Fall 2017 and also scored a near-perfect 526 out of 528 on the MCAT which tests on both biology and biochemistry.

Genetics

I was a TA for genetics during undergrad and did very well in the course.

MCAT

I scored a 526 (100th percentile, 130/132/132/132) on the new MCAT and 34 (94th percentile) on the old MCAT (11 PS/13 VR/10 BS). I have also been accepted to 4 MD programs so far during the 2017 application cycle. I also had 2 successful years of tutoring experience through my university, both as a 1-on-1 peer tutor and as a Teaching Assistant for science courses such as Organic Chemistry and Genetics.

Will is Excellent!!

I have nothing but good things to say about Will. He has definitely done his homework regarding the MCAT and it shows. The resources he has pushed me towards and steered me away from has turned his hard work into my efficiency. I wish I had spent a lot more money on a tutor like Will instead of wasting money on MCAT test prep software that expired and wasn't really that helpful anyway. His CAR
