“Elliot is an amazingly supportive tutor who is also a skilled teacher and an adept master of the material. He does a great job connecting with his students, and helps manage the stressors of the MCAT studying grind. He helped me reach my MCAT goals, even in this stressful and uncertain time.”
Jordan, MCAT Student
“Elliot is intelligent and capable of explaining concepts in a number of ways, and he is also caring and patient and has a geunuine interest in his tutees. I was beyond overwhelmed by the MCAT and did not have faith in my ability to do well. Elliot not only taught me the information I needed to know, but he also helped me build my confidence and self esteem—two vital aspects of the MCAT experience that are so often overlooked. I would not have been able to take the MCAT without him!”
Nataly, MCAT Student
“Elliot's approach made all the difference for me. No matter the subject area, he was ready to answer any question I had. He explained difficult concepts by boiling them down to core concepts, and then demonstrated how those core concepts applied to various cases. After every session, I had new knowledge and understood how I could apply it moving forward.”
Nillani, MCAT Student
“I began working with Elliot halfway through the studying experience, and I can say with confidence that he helped me significantly boost my score. I wasn't sure if virtual lessons would work for me, but Elliot made each session convenient and productive, and developed lessons around what I needed. His lessons were the perfect balance between content review and test strategy. He answered my qestions clearly, was always available to help, and made sure I knew what I needed to work on. He kept me calm, positive, and dedicated, despite all the certainity of taking the MCAT during the Covid-19 pandemic. It was really amazing to work with someone who was so supportive.”
Catherine, MCAT Student
“The MCAT was particularly challenging for me as an international student/non-native English speaker, and Elliot provided the discipline, rigor, and support I needed at every step. In each session, Elliot gave me mini-quizzes so I learned to apply concepts and keep them fresh. He helped me build a strong knowledge foundation. Due to personal circumstances, my MCAT prep journey was significantly prolonged, but Elliot stuck with me—he was patient and motivational, and supported me all the way to the finish line.”
Zach, MCAT Student
“Elliot was especially helpful with content review.”
Score went from 502 to 512
