About Will

Hi! I'm Will, a medical student at the University of Pittsburgh. 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 1500+ hours tutoring experience). I completed two summers of research at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, and have worked as an EMT. I scored a near-perfect 526 out of 528 with perfect scores on the CARS, Bio/Biochem, and Psych/Soc sections of the new MCAT (100th percentile: 130/132/132/132). I am currently focusing my tutoring on only the CARS and strategy portion of the exam, as well as offering admissions counseling services.

I will help you learn to approach difficult MCAT passages with confidence, and fully interpret and apply passage-given information. I believe the reasoning skills aspect of the test is often overlooked as something that cannot be learned or improved upon – I wholeheartedly disagree! I will help you learn to think critically the way that the AAMC wants you to, so that you can get the MCAT score you need to become a physician. My initial MCAT sessions typically begin with discussing testing strategies and passage approach as well as study and review strategies, followed by reviewing AAMC passages together in subsequent sessions to get the best value out of our time together.

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 (including personal statements/secondary essay feedback and editing) and interview counseling – all using the same methods that allowed me to gain admission into 4 US MD programs.

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.

College Counseling

I received acceptances to four US MD programs, was waitlisted at two others, and received an additional interview that I did not attend. I have since helped students with both grammar and content for Personal Statements, AMCAS essays, and Secondary essays. I can also help improve interview skills and provide commonly asked questions, as well as mock interview sessions.

MCAT

I scored a near-perfect 526 (100th percentile, 130/132/132/132) on the new MCAT, including perfect scores in the CARS (Verbal), Bio/Biochem, and Psych/Soc sections. I have hundreds of hours of MCAT tutoring experience.

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
