More About Aaron

Hi, I’m Aaron and I’m very excited to help all of you with your MCAT journey! I’m a rising senior at UCLA studying Molecular, Cell, and Developmental biology with a minor in History. I took the MCAT in January 2024 and I will say that the months leading up to the test were some of the most stressful months of my life. I learned a lot of lessons and have many things that I wish I had known when I was studying. I would love to share these thoughts with you and help you reach your dream score!

Studying did not go the way I planned. My initial plan was to study hard during the summer all the way until January. I ended up aimlessly drifting around during the summer, thinking that I had plenty of time. I made no progress until late October when I realized that the test was almost 2 months away. I finally got serious and studied nonstop. I sped through content review and started doing hours of practice problems daily. I took a full length every weekend. All of this paid off and I strongly believe that all of you can do the same.

The main thing that helped me when I took the test was building up endurance. The vast majority of people have never encountered a 7 hour test before and I certainly hadn’t either. Staying in the zone and applying critical thinking for 230 questions with minimal breaks was a huge challenge. Thankfully, I was able to overcome that and am now enjoying the post-MCAT life. I’ll walk you through nuanced strategies that I used to stay locked in and acquire an excellent score. 

I also greatly enjoy teaching. Watching students overcome obstacles and challenges makes me extremely happy. I coach tennis and tutor students in human biology/physiology, so I have a quite diverse teaching skill set. I pride myself on the fact that I really try to know each individual student that I have the pleasure of teaching. Knowing students and their learning styles inside out, in my opinion, allows me to teach much more effectively.

Outside of school, I enjoy playing tennis, performing magic, watching sports, mountain biking, and going on outdoor adventures. And of course, I love spending quality time with friends and family. Dispersing these pastimes throughout studying was essential in keeping me from burning out. And now that I am done with the MCAT I’m enjoying my hobbies more than ever. I can’t wait to see all of you in this phase! 

Again, I understand how much stress and anxiety the MCAT can produce. I will closely guide you and ease your worries, up until the day you open up your score portal and see a score that you can be proud of. I look forward to working with you!

 

Best Regards,

Aaron

Valerie

“For as long as I can remember, I have always been on the slower side when it comes to learning and grasping concepts. When I met Aaron, I could tell right away that he was experienced with not only the content but in explaining and conveying that knowledge to another student. Right off the bat, he was really patient while walking me through one of the questions step-by-step, which I really appreciated. I was essentially a blank slate, so he started from the basics and slowly built up from there, so that it was easier to follow along. Even with a challenging concept, he is somehow able to fully explain everything in a way that makes it easier to digest without oversimplifying anything. Along the way, he would check-in to make sure that I was able to follow along rather than just explaining the entire time. He is also super approachable. Usually I get scared to ask more questions when someone is helping me, but I felt comfortable asking Aaron questions when something didn’t make sense, and he was always willing to help. Something I really appreciated were the analogies he would make because it was easier to recall the information and they really stuck with me when I would attempt to explain the concepts back to myself. I believe that anyone who chooses Aaron as their tutor made a really great and wise choice.”

Simon

Aaron is the single best tutor I have ever had. Largely due to Aaron’s help, I was able to not only succeed in learning difficult science topics, but also have a lot of fun doing so! Aaron is extremely approachable; he praises the student for their progress and will never put them down for what they do not know. He breaks down concepts concisely and clearly, and is able to explain difficult ideas with such clarity that it always made me wonder why I had such trouble understanding those concepts to begin with. Aaron’s breadth of knowledge is also unparalleled. It continuously amazed me that I could hop from concept to concept without him ever needing to review any material. Aaron’s knowledge is reflected by his perfect GPA and exceptional MCAT score. In short, Aaron would make a phenomenal MCAT tutor, and I give him my highest recommendation.

“Aaron is extremely patient and efficient with guiding me through concepts, using drawings and visual aids to illustrate his points and checking in with me to verify my understanding. If I did not understand the concepts, he patiently and kindly spent more time with me until I did understand.”

Vaibhav

I highly recommend Aaron as an MCAT tutor. Aaron was an incredibly knowledgeable and encouraging tutor who broke down difficult concepts into easily digestible steps. He helped me develop critical thinking abilities that guided me to solve a problem rather than just give me the answer when I struggled with a question. Additionally, he was encouraging when I felt like giving up or was struggling. Being tutored by him was a pleasure.”

Aaron mentors me closely, demonstrating his organizational skills and dedication to helping others. Aaron is not only an expert in the MCAT topics, but he is also a clear communicator when he explains concepts to me. He assisted me extensively in biochemistry, teaching me the topics in a clear and simplified manner. Aaron played a crucial role in my progress and can, without a doubt, set you up for success on the MCAT.”
