Richard L.


Richard was born in Canada and immigrated to the United States in elementary school, settling in the calm suburbs of Missouri. He graduated from Princeton with a degree in chemistry before spending two years at Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar studying Global Health Sciences and receiving an MBA. He is currently studying at Harvard Medical School. Richard is passionate about issues of health access and equity, and has worked on public and global health projects through McKinsey & Co and conducted research on health systems in Kenya (health IT), South Africa (vaccine development), and urban New Jersey (care access).

Richard has had extensive experience tutoring over the last 6 years, focusing on standardized test prep (SAT, ACT, GMAT, MCAT), chemistry, biology, and mathematics. Drawing from his own experience with college, job, and fellowship applications, he has also coached students through the process of creating a compelling narrative for competitive applications.

In his spare time, Richard enjoys cooking, hiking, experiencing new cultures, going to the symphony, and Qdoba.

  • Testimonial Citation: 
    "We only had one 2-hour session, but I felt that I gained a lot from Richard's assessment of me and advice for how to improve my test-taking strategies and overall score. I used his methods ("Why I missed it" sheet, thorough reviews of exams, UWorld, and word documents for gaps in content) and was already feeling much more confident in the content and test-taking strategies. I took one practice exam (AAMC FL1) and jumped from a 513 when I took it in December to a 522 one week ago; I was also completing each section with plenty of time whereas when I took it in December I ran out of time in two sections. Richard was thoughtful and precise in his efforts with me."
