Rex is a California man through and through. Though he interviewed at 12 medical schools and got acceptances from 10 of them (including Harvard, UChicago, Vanderbilt, Brown, and Sinai), he decided he had to stay in the sunny state of CA. He is currently a medical student at UCSF School of Medicine. He graduated summa cum laude from UCLA in 2019 with a Bachelor’s in Neuroscience and a minor in Biomedical Research.
Rex's strengths include exam preparation for the MCAT, as well as chemistry and biology tutoring. He enjoys helping students achieve a big-picture understanding of complex biological phenomena such as metabolism and physiology, by emphasizing conceptual approaches over rote memorization. He has an extensive background in basic science and clinical research, and loves talking about research methods as well as explaining intuitive ways to interpret data. He is also excited to help guide students through the medical school admissions process — from brainstorming content for application materials to entering interviews confident and prepared for success.
Outside of class, you can find him singing a cappella, taking photos, seeking out puppers, or (more likely) falling asleep with a book open.
