Grant Sc.

Bio

Grant is originally from Edmond, Oklahoma. He attended Emory University where he dove into biochemistry research for four years before graduating summa cum laude. At Emory, he was also inducted into Phi Beta Kappa. After college, he taught high school science in Washington D.C. before returning to Emory to complete a graduate degree in health education. He is currently pursuing an MD at Harvard Medical School, where he researches exercise physiology and regenerative medicine. 

Grant has been tutoring the MCAT for five years, and has worked with students from various ages and academic backgrounds. He is passionate about teaching physics, chemistry, biology, and test strategy. As a former science teacher with a background in health education, Grant integrates pedagogical tools from cognitive science to develop a rigorous and effective test prep plan individualized for each learner. In addition, he has mentored students at Harvard College as they prepare for the medical admissions process. 

Outside of his studies, Grant enjoys running. He has completed the Boston Marathon several times, in addition to marathons in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Hungary, France, Spain, Thailand, and all over the United States. For Grant, MCAT preparation is like training for a marathon, and behind every great athlete is an experienced and encouraging coach.
