Testimonials

    "Aaron was able to explain really complicated (to me at least) physics and chemistry ideas without making me feel feel like an idiot. I walked away from every single session with a deeper understanding of the material and with more confidence. I thought he was great. He was really responsive to emails and texts, very flexible with his schedule, and clearly knew the material."

    "[What did your tutor do well?] Aaron was extremely knowledgeable of the MCAT content. He was able to help me reason through and develop better approaches to tough passages, especially in CARS and Bio sections. He was always prepared and made sure that I came away with a fully understanding of the concepts I had issues with. Additionally, he helped developed a rigorous but effective curriculum that helped me stay on track and keep me hard at work. Overall, he was a pleasure to work with and very flexible. I highly recommend him!"
