Need help preparing for your big test? Flummoxed by functions or confused by chemistry? I’m a tutor who specializes in making these topics enjoyable and understandable, with energy and patience for instruction and a wealth of experience tutoring math, science, and exam prep at all levels, from middle to grad school.

I'm an energetic professional teacher with a Master's Degree from Georgetown (MS 2017), an extensive background in writing, research, and theory from my time spent as a Political Philosophy undergraduate, and a specialization 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, multiple students who replicated that success, 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, teach test strategy and skills, and walk you through the most challenging elements step-by-step to ensure mastery.

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.

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.

Awesome and Knowledgeable tutor!

Luke has been helping me to study for GRE the past few weeks. Not only has my baseline score gone up, but I feel significantly more confident going into this test than I thought I would be! He is incredibly responsive and works with me until we are both confident that I completely understand the material at hand. Would highly recommend!!!

Sara, 17 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, 5 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, 14 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.

Real Quality Tutor

Luke helped me approach the MCAT from a conceptual standpoint and it is evident that he not only has mastered general chemistry and physics, but has experience teaching various backgrounds. Very patient, encouraging, and easy to talk to; you will not feel timid asking any and all questions you need to be prepared. He showed me how to approach the chemistry/physics section strategically by using concepts which yielded the correct answer in a shorter amount of time. He also walked me through on how to approach the Psychology and CARS section using his foolproof method. Excellent teacher and excellent quality of education. My test anxiety was significantly reduced as I improved throughout my sessions with him. I highly recommend this gem of a tutor/teacher who holds a masters from Georgetown; a very competitive school.

Gabriela, 8 lessons 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.

Alex, 4 lessons with Luke

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!
