Terrance M.


Terrance was born in Accra, Ghana and immigrated to Greensboro, NC with his family when he was six. Growing up, he was always interested in science and medicine. At Williams, Terrance conducted an original thesis project exploring the role of inflammation on memory processing in a mouse model. In his first gap year, Terrance was awarded the Herchel Smith Fellowship which allowed him to pursue a fully funded graduate degree at the University of Cambridge in the UK. At Cambridge, Terrance completed his Master’s in Clinical Neuroscience in which he explored the role of a novel gene therapy in treating neurodegenerative diseases. Terrance then used his second gap year to work as a graduate research assistant in a neurodevelopmental lab at Harvard Medical School. Terrance is now an MD candidate at Harvard Medical School.

Terrance is extremely passionate about working with students preparing for the MCAT and the broader medical school application process. As a tutor for Cambridge Coaching, Terrance’s fields of expertise include MCAT tutoring and Medical Admissions coaching. 

When he’s not studying or doing research, Terrance enjoys personal fitness and playing sports with friends. He also loves exploring the dining scene in Boston and has made it his mission to visit at least one restaurant in each of Boston’s neighborhoods before graduating.
