More About Alyssa

Hello! I’m Alyssa, and I’m thrilled to be your partner on your MCAT journey. When I took the MCAT in August 2023, I achieved a score of 524, landing in the 100th percentile—a testament to my 21-point score increase from my initial diagnosis. This substantial improvement wasn’t just about hard work; it was about smart, strategic preparation. With the content still fresh in my mind, I’m fully equipped to help you understand and master it too.

My approach to MCAT prep transcends the basics—integrating the MCAT Self Prep model with my unique adaptation of various study resources and strategies, I focus on both mastering content and honing critical test-taking skills. My background in a research-intensive program has also sharpened my analytical skills, especially in dissecting complex passages, a key skill for the MCAT that I am eager to pass onto you.

Moreover, my extensive experience as a private tutor has refined my ability to tailor lessons to the individual needs of each student. Beyond academics, my role as a mentor for distress line volunteers has imbued me with robust patience and communication skills, enabling me to support students through the pressures of MCAT prep effectively.

Outside of tutoring, I thrive on being active and creative. Whether I’m immersed in a compelling book, dancing, hiking up a trail, or scaling a rock face, each activity fuels my energy and sharpens my focus. These hobbies not only offer a welcome respite from academic rigor but also enhance my teaching by keeping me balanced and innovative. I encourage my students to find similar outlets, fostering a relaxed and connected learning atmosphere that supports both their studies and personal well-being.

I bring these experiences and insights to each tutoring session, aiming to transform your approach to the MCAT by developing both your knowledge and your test-taking confidence. Together, we’ll transform challenges into triumphs, ensuring you not only meet but exceed your goals.

I’m excited to start this journey with you. Let’s make your MCAT success story happen!

Warmest regards,

Alyssa

Aksharaa

“Alyssa is an exceptionally patient and accommodating tutor who I would wholeheartedly recommend to students who are struggling with challenges in their studying. While she was tutoring me, she took the time to pinpoint areas that I struggled with and focused on teaching me those concepts. She was incredibly kind and took the time to assess my understanding of difficult concepts and patiently repeated those concepts in different ways until I finally grasped them. Her guidance not only helped me acquire useful learning strategies, it also helped me gain confidence in my ability to learn difficult material.”

“Alyssa is the best tutor for anyone wanting to excel at the MCAT! After my first attempt at the MCAT, which did not go as planned, I turned to Alyssa for help. Her tutoring made all the difference. Alyssa’s study strategies, like using flashcards and spaced repetition, helped me retain information better. She breaks down complex concepts with simple diagrams and helpful mnemonics, making them easy to understand. Above all, she is one of the kindest and most patient people you will ever meet. Thanks to her guidance, my MCAT score improved dramatically. I highly recommend Alyssa to anyone looking for a top-notch MCAT tutor. I am so grateful I met her during my pre-med journey!”

Calvin

“I cannot recommend Alyssa highly enough as an MCAT tutor! Her sessions are a perfect blend of focus and efficiency, tailored specifically to address the unique challenges of the MCAT. What truly sets Alyssa apart is her ability to devise strategies that simplify the analysis and interpretation of the notoriously difficult MCAT passages. Before I started sessions with her, I was overwhelmed by the CARS section, my weakest area. Alyssa provided personalized strategies that perfectly matched my learning style, transforming my approach to these passages. Her insights made complex topics not only understandable but approachable. With her help, I turned what was once a stumbling block into one of my strongest assets on the exam. Her support has been instrumental in boosting my confidence and performance on the MCAT.”
