Looking for help with any level of science, math, or test prep? I’m a tutor who specializes in making these subjects enjoyable and understandable, with energy and patience for instruction.

I'm an energetic professional teacher with a Master's Degree from Georgetown in Physiology and Biophysics (MS 2017). I have an extensive background in writing, research, and theory from my time spent as a Political Philosophy undergraduate, though today I specialize in math and the sciences. This background allows me to tutor all sections of the ACT, SAT, GRE, and MCAT.

With a 99th percentile score on the most recent MCAT and an extensive background in Physiology, Chemistry, Anatomy, Biology, Ecology, Physics, and more, I'm prepared to help with any science questions, from details of Organic Chemistry to writing papers in General Biology.

I'm an SAT, ACT, and GRE tutor who can teach specific topics or craft a whole study plan for the exam. I'll lay out weekly exercises and practice and do whatever it takes to help you succeed.

I'm prepared to help you with anything in math, science or exam prep, anytime! I teach science and math courses professionally at a local school, and have been studying the subject for many years. I'm ready to help you connect with and fall in love with the material while you become an expert.

If you're looking for a tutor with extensive professional experience, an incredible background in math, test prep, the sciences and writing, and a fervent desire to help others love and learn the material, I'm your pick.

MCAT,

MCAT

I'm an experienced MCAT tutor who has sent students to the exam with great success. A recent student scored in the 99th percentile! I'm also a high scorer on the MCAT (99th percentile as well) so I understand how to approach the questions and can help you craft your own ideal approach and study plan. Everyone is different and has unique needs, so I tutor specifically to what you need. I have years of experience tutoring students in the sciences and for exams including MCAT, GRE, ACT, and SAT. The MCAT is its own animal and requires a tutor who is well-versed in its details and the method of approach. I use a specific technique to tutor the exam, especially on the CARS section, a technique that I believe is quite effective in boosting scores. I'd like to use this expertise to help you become better at this process, doing well on the MCAT and moving into medical school. I can craft an entire lesson plan for you, or we can review specific sections, it's up to you! Either way, we can start as soon as you'd like!

5/5 stars - Great tutor and very personable!

Luke was always able to answer my questions where other sources failed to. Although I only hired him to help me with CARS, he took the role of my MCAT adviser for all other sections, asking how I was progressing with the other aspects of the MCAT through our time together. Would recommend to anyone who wants a good method to follow to increase CARS score, takes work but he is there to encourage you for each step.

David, 4 lessons with Luke

Perfect Tutor

He is very patient. My son schedule one lesson but he continues with him for more. He is knowledgeable and professional. Also, he is perfect in teaching SAT and other subjects related.

MAJEDAH, 3 lessons with Luke

Very knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Luke walked me through the immune response and the clotting cascade just to name a few things. He helped me with ways to prepare for my upcoming tests along with testing statigy.

Monica, 1 lesson with Luke

Patient and adaptable tutor

Luke has been my tutor for GRE quantitative reasoning prep. He's an excellent teacher, able to break down complex ideas into the fundamentals needed to tackle the specific types of questions on the test. He's also adaptable and flexible -- if you need to revisit a concept or have it simplified further, he's patient and happy to walk through examples. I'd highly recommend him!

Karolina, 10 lessons with Luke

Clear and nice

Luke helped with overall strategy and high yield tricky topics. He helped calm some nerves and pointed me towards some additional helpful resources.

Erin, 1 lesson with Luke

Great tutor for ACT math prep.

Luke did a great job in a couple of weeks of tutoring our son on ACT math prior to taking the test in July. We recommend him for others looking for the same kind of help.

Knowledgeable and understanding tutor

While preparing for the MCAT, there is a high probability that people fall into an overwhelming feeling which could cause to feel lost, confused and not confident enough. I was faced to so many different opinions on how to study for he MCAT that I easily lost my way. When I felt like I was not progressing, I decided to start a tutoring session with Luke. He oriented and helped me through my MCAT prep depending on my own abilities and encourage me to keep up with my work ( even if I thought I was not being productive). He most importantly helped to become more comfortable with passages based questions and to learn the skill along the way. Therefore, I am surely satisfied with my tutoring session which is now pumping my confidence for the MCAT.

Jennifer, 10 lessons with Luke

Great tutor!

Luke helped me with MCAT topics across sections like chemistry, physics, critical analysis etc. He was always very knowledgable across all topics and made sure to personalize each session to individual weaknesses. He tries to ensure complete, conceptual understanding rather than surface-level knowledge. I highly recommend him to anyone!

Knowledgeable Tutor

Luke did a great job working with chemistry. He is knowledgeable and easy to work with. Great tutor. He explains topics in detail and works toward understanding rather than memorization.
