Elliot

Bio

Elliot is a transplant from sunny and warm California.  He bid farewell to the West Coast seven years ago when he moved to Cambridge to study Biology at MIT.  After graduating, Elliot was a recipient of the Rhodes Scholarship. He moved to England for two years to pursue an MSc by Research in Clinical Medicinat Oxford University.  He is now back in Boston and continues to conduct immunology research as a student in the Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology MD-PhD program.

Elliot has previously taught immunology to high school students with the MIT Educational Studies Program, and is well versed in the undergraduate, medical, and fellowship application processes.  His major academic areas include biology, chemistry, physics, statistics, as well as test preparation.  At Cambridge Coaching, he specializes in tutoring the MCAT -- he can tailor a plan to fit every MCAT taker's timeline and needs.

In his spare time, Elliot enjoys playing ice hockey, learning new sports (recently squash!), and trying to keep up his French.

    "Elliot was probably the best tutor I could ask for! He is incredibly patient and is always rooting for you. He was readily able to answer all of my questions, no matter the subject area, and go beyond the surface level information I needed. What really made the difference for me was how easily Elliot was able to explain concepts that at once can seem really jarring and boil them down to core concepts while demonstrating how to apply them in various cases. After every session, I walked away with a very clear idea of what I had learned and how I could apply it moving forward."

    "Elliot was wonderful to work with! He developed each of his lesson plans around what I specifically needed. I began with Elliot half way through my MCAT studying experience and can say, with confidence, he helped me boost my score significantly. I was not sure if virtual lessons would work for me, but Elliot made these lessons convenient and worth my while. His lessons had the perfect balance of content review and answer strategizing. He answered questions clearly, was always available to help, and made sure I knew what I needed to work on. Elliot was able to keep me calm despite the uncertainty of testing during the COVID-19 pandemic. He kept me positive and dedicated throughout the process. It was really amazing to work with someone so supportive."
