More About Andrew
Hi! My name is Andrew, and I am super happy and excited to help you get ready for the MCAT! As the Founder and CEO of MCAT Self Prep, I have a deep knowledge concerning what it takes to succeed on this extremely challenging exam. I personally analyzed the experiences of students that scored in the top 5th percentile on the MCAT, and used the results of my research to design and launch the MCAT Self Prep eCourse. This experience, combined with my personal experience in studying for the MCAT allow me to provide my students with the exact guidance they need to get a top MCAT score. This expertise has allowed me to tutor several of my students to 100th percentile MCAT scores. I plan on helping you achieve the same.
I have many years of teaching experience and am currently the Head Tutor of MCAT Self Prep. As such, I have privately tutored over 100 pre-meds. In the past, I have also given instructional speeches to groups of 100+, taught English as a volunteer in Japan for two years, and also trained teachers in a volunteer organization. Due to my extensive experience, I know what it takes to teach in a way that leads to true understanding. This involves teaching to the needs of each individual student. Before we get together via video call, I will carefully look over all your questions, understanding your needs and concerns, and crafting a 100-percent personalized lesson plan. I come to lessons fully prepared and ready to answer my students’ questions, helping them overcome the weaknesses that are keeping them from achieving a top MCAT score.
I love helping my students know what to study and when to study it. Throughout the entire study process, I will carefully track your practice exam scores to know how to adjust and revamp your study plan. I can guide you to the best resources and help you know how to prioritize your study time. When test day comes, my students feel confident in their ability to reach their goal MCAT score. You will too.
If you have already taken the MCAT and are looking to take it again, I can most definitely help you with this process. Most of my current students are also in this situation and are making significant improvements. For instance, one of my students scored a 488 on her first MCAT attempt, but after working hard and following my guidance, she was able to improve her score to a 514. I helped another one of my students go from a 506 to a 521 in just a month-and-a-half. I specialize in helping students improve, so I am confident that I can help you no matter where you are starting from.
During the medical school application cycle, I was accepted to multiple top-25 medical schools. I used this experience and an in-depth analysis of statements made by medical school admissions officers to craft my Medical School Application Course. For this reason, I love helping students craft personal statements and prepare to apply to medical school.
Because I decided to devote my career to helping students prepare for the MCAT, I am extremely available. My students love that they can send me a text and get a response back within minutes. Helping students achieve MCAT success is my passion.
When I am not tutoring, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also love to exercise, and especially like to go on hikes and spend time outdoors. I enjoy singing and playing the ukulele, and try to make an appearance at the local elderly home when I can. I have two little boys, who definitely keep me and my wife busy. We have a lot of fun playing with them and laughing at all the silly things they do.
I love making new friends, and I like to think of myself as a friend to each one of the students that I teach. I am always willing to go the extra mile in helping each of my students get a top score on the MCAT. I personally understand that the MCAT can be anxiety-inducing, and am always looking for ways to make it less stressful for my students. I am currently tutoring many different students from all around the world, but could certainly make time to start working with you! I hope that you will decide to start tutoring with me, and if you have any questions before signing up for your tutoring package, feel free to contact me using the form at the bottom of this page to set up a time for a free consultation. I am looking forward to getting to know you soon!
Hear What Andrew’s Students are Saying About Him
“A couple months before my MCAT test date, I was continually scoring between a 505 and a 508 on practice tests even though I felt like I was spending a lot of time studying. I realized that I needed help structuring and prioritizing my studying, and luckily I came across MCAT Self Prep and Andrew’s tutoring. Within the first 10 minutes of our first session, Andrew restructured my study plan and gave me tangible tips for how to maximize my productivity. He was also very honest with me about the hard work it would take to improve my score, which was helpful. Our tutoring sessions were always extremely efficient due to Andrew’s preparation, and his ability to clarify large misconceptions about the material was really impactful. With his help and the MCAT Self Prep resources, I brought my score up to a 521 (99th percentile) on my final AAMC practice exam within a month and a half!“
“Andrew provided an affordable option for the the exact MCAT tutoring I needed. He guided me in finding the best study resources, staying accountable, and answering my questions as they came up. He is very personable, and I would recommend him to any of my friends who want to save a lot of money.”

David did just a Single Tutoring Session with Andrew before he started studying for the MCAT in order to make a personalized and effective study plan. He followed the study plan diligently and ended up scoring a 524 (100th percentile) on test day! He is currently receiving attention from top medical schools such as Stanford and Harvard. He feels that his initial session with Andrew had a huge impact on his success:
When I first started thinking about taking the MCAT and applying to medical school, Andrew was the first person I talked to for advice. He was patient, friendly, and very willing to help. What I liked most was that Andrew gave me down-to-earth, practical advice. He told me very honestly about his process studying for the MCAT as well as which classes and practice materials he found the most helpful. Hearing Andrew’s experience helped me believe that I could also do well on the MCAT through my own study without having to pay thousands of dollars for a prep course. Andrew helped me set up a basic study plan, and I stuck to it in the following months. It took discipline, but when I finally got my scores back I was excited to see I had scored in the 100th percentile. So, I can now say with confidence that preparing on your own for the MCAT is not only possible, but preferable to spending so much money on other test prep companies. I can also say that I know Andrew’s desire to help is genuine. I could tell he wanted me to succeed and he cared about me as a person, not just a customer. In short, I’m a big supporter of MCAT Self Prep!”

“Andrew is an incredible tutor! I am extremely pleased with my MCAT prep experience due to the help he offered me. Personally, I found the most stressful thing about preparing for the MCAT was simply not knowing where to begin. I wasn’t sure the best way to make a plan or how I could most effectively track my progress. Andrew removed all of those worries for me. He set me on a path that required diligence and effort but left me feeling comfortable on test day. He is extremely personable and really cares about addressing your individual worries and concerns. I found that really helpful as it removed any doubts I had about the test and replaced them with confidence. I highly recommend Andrew to anyone looking to boost their scores on the MCAT!” Click here to watch Garrett open his MCAT score results!
“Tutoring with Andrew was such a great experience! I enjoyed the flexibility of being able to meet online, and I also enjoyed the fact that I was able to cover so much material during each session. Andrew’s clarity, patience, and expertise with MCAT content provided me with the skills and confidence I needed to improve my score by 12 points during my preparation period. He was always willing to help and encourage me along the way. I am SO happy and grateful that I came across MCAT Self Prep. Thank you very much, Andrew!”
“This has been my first time using an online tutoring service and I am pleased with the experience. I was a bit nervous for my first session, but my tutor, Andrew, is very friendly and easy to talk to. Online tools such as the MCAT Self Prep Study Portal, video calls and the whiteboard make it seem like we are meeting in person. Instead of just jumping into my questions on the Study Portal, at the beginning of each tutor session Andrew asks me how my studying is going, making sure my preparation for the MCAT is line with my needs. Prior to my scheduled tutor session, my questions on the Study Portal have been answered often with links to supplemental information. This shows me that Andrew takes his time and may even go out of his way to help me understand concepts in the best way possible. I always leave a tutoring session knowing more and feeling confident!”
Praheetha has really enjoyed tutoring with Andrew, seeing major improvements in the sections that have been the most difficult for her. Here is what she has to say about her experience:
“When I got my first MCAT score back, I was very disappointed because not only was the score not as high as I would have liked but I wasn’t sure I how I could improve. Then I discovered MCAT Self Prep and got Andrew as a tutor, and it was the best decision I could have made to improve my score! Andrew is an awesome instructor because he doesn’t just explain the concepts but helps you figure them out on your own, so it helps reinforce what I am learning. Most importantly he is very encouraging, and I always feel like I have someone cheering in my corner. Another thing that I like about MCAT Self Prep is that it is easy to schedule a tutoring session and if you need a particular time the tutors are more than happy to work with you. Andrew helped me plan an entire study schedule based on my needs and other activities, which made the study process less overwhelming. So far, I have noticed that my score has jumped up 4 points in each of my “problem” sections and overall, I feel a lot more confident about taking my next test. If anyone is planning on taking the MCAT, I recommend using MCAT Self Prep; it has awesome resources and tutors who go above and beyond for you.”
“I started studying with Andrew 5 weeks before my test day because I felt like I was not improving in my studying on my own. Andrew helped me to focus my studying and helped me to plan mini-exams to test myself the last couple weeks before my MCAT. He was very helpful in answering my questions and making me feel confident. He explained things very clearly and also gave me some great test-taking tips specific to the MCAT. I would highly recommend Andrew over ANY prep course – you will get personalized assistance so that you don’t need to waste time on things that you already know and someone that really wants to see you do your best.”
“Working with Andrew was one of the best decisions I have made during my MCAT preparation. Not only was Andrew very helpful during our tutoring sessions together, but he was also easily accessible when I had questions regarding my study plan and other aspects of my preparation. With Andrew’s help I was able to learn the ins and outs of how to approach the CARS and what I needed to do to drastically improve my score. Andrew made tutoring sessions very comfortable and personal. If I uploaded information into my study portal that I needed help with, I knew that Andrew would work diligently to prepare for our session together the next day. Because of this, I had extreme confidence as I sat down to take the MCAT. I recommend MCAT Self Prep over any other prep company, hands down.”
“I had a wonderful experience working with Andrew. During our session, Andrew provided me with a personalized month-to-month study plan to maximize my study time. He is very knowledgeable and prepared himself well before the session to address my questions. He also provided thorough explanations to all of my questions. Overall, I highly recommend Andrew as a tutor!”
“Preparing for the MCAT can be both time consuming and expensive, so I was really excited when I heard about the MCAT Self Prep Tutoring Program. Andrew was very patient and flexible – which is so valuable for the busy college student. I had been studying on my own, so it really helped to have an expert to guide me in the crucial last weeks before the test. At the same time, I also had the independence to make my own schedule to fit my current needs (i.e. summer work, etc.). Many thanks to Andrew for helping me stay positive throughout the study process!”
“MCAT Self Prep is the real deal. Like most premeds, for me the MCAT has been one of my largest obstacles to tackle. In December of 2017, I began my MCAT studying by taking a full length AAMC practice exam, and after scoring a 487 on it, I knew I needed to get some sort of system to help me learn how to take the test and not be overwhelmed by the amount of content and the length of test. After searching the web for a course that didn’t cost an arm and a leg, I found MCAT Self Prep. The feeling was similar to that of finding an oasis in the desert, although I have never had such an experience I imagine it to be similar… The content modules cover everything you need to know. I took the beloved MCAT on June 17th and walked out telling my fiancé, that it was actually kind of fun! I didn’t do as well as I had hoped to on the first round, but scoring a 502 was a nice 15 point jump from my initial AAMC practice exam! This success was due to nothing less than God, MCAT Self Prep, and a lot of hard work. Andrew is a kind light-hearted guy, he makes tutoring not feel like a chore; he becomes your friend during the tutoring sessions, and his skills are beyond excellent. MCAT Self Prep is the way to go!!!”
Tutoring with Andrew was Serena’s last hope for an applications-worthy MCAT score, and she was not disappointed. Here’s what she had to say after getting her MCAT score back:
“I came to MCAT Self Prep having already worked with two different tutoring companies. Needless to say, I was a bit hesitant that I could meet my MCAT goals, but after speaking with Andrew those reservations subsided. Andrew worked tirelessly in helping to identify my weaknesses while suggesting varied approaches to the four sections of the MCAT. Throughout our sessions together we spent hours reviewing my questions and concerns along with different test-taking strategies. Andrew was punctual, professional, humorous, and extremely knowledgeable. Overall, working as a team, I personally felt that Andrew was not only invested financially but genuinely cared about my success. In fact, even on the morning of the actual test day, Andrew was texting me last minute suggestions and words of encouragement. After a long journey – today – I’m proud to say that I’ve been accepted to medical school! I wish to thank MCAT Self Prep and wholeheartedly recommend Andrew as your future MCAT tutor.”
Moira worked with Andrew while taking classes, doing research, and many other extracurricular activities. Andrew helped her plan around these obstacles, helping her earn a score above the 95th percentile. Here is what she had to say regarding her experience:
“When I started the studying process, I was really overwhelmed by all the different ways to study. Andrew really helped me to get focused, make a plan and follow through with it. With his help, I managed to get my score up 15 points from my first full length in 4 months!”
With the MCAT Self Prep program and Andrew’s tutoring, Varnica was able to improve from her starting score of a 486 to a 511, a 25 point increase! She feels that tutoring with Andrew during the final month was the key to some last minute improvements:
“Andrew was really invested in my training and was very open about sharing the right ways to study for the MCAT. I definitely saw an increase in my scores with his tutoring. I was able to increase my score by 11 points in a span of 3 weeks with his tutoring. During the practice reviews, he made it a point to focus on the important topics and also tested me during the tutoring sessions on the topics that I was doubtful of. I would definitely recommend his tutoring sessions”
During his final month of MCAT studying with Andrew, Victor improved his score from a 498 to a 507 on test day, increasing his score by 9 points in a single month! Here’s what he has to say regarding his experience:
“Andrew was extremely helpful and encouraging during the entire MCAT preparation process. He not only helped me obtain structure and direction in my studying but also helped me maintain a constant positive aura along the way. I have never had a tutor that was able to highlight key areas of focus along the preparation process like Andrew was able to do. Andrew was also extremely flexible and accessible at all times and clearly cared about helping me obtain the highest score possible. In addition, every single online session with Andrew was extremely helpful for me in terms of fixing gaps in my knowledge and in obtaining new tools to use in tackling other problems. Andrew is the most creative, hard-working, and caring tutor that I have ever come across.“
Lara found tutoring with Andrew combined with the Deluxe Pro Plan essential to increasing her score from a 508 on her first MCAT attempt to a 522:
“So, when I first started studying for the MCAT, I quickly became overwhelmed with all the sources out there. When I came across MCAT Self Prep, it was a breath of fresh air because it seemed to compile all the best info from many different sources. Andrew did the dirty work and sorted through all that stuff. My initial MCAT score was a 508, and that was with a pretty solid handle on the content. Having gotten very serious with my schedule in September (by the way, Andrew’s google doc for the schedule is THE BEST), I used the quizlets and lessons to boost my score to a 522 on my latest practice exam. I would highly recommend this course (I did the Deluxe Pro Plan), and Andrew is also a great tutor! I saved my sessions for closer to my exam, but I actually wish I had worked with him earlier on because he really instills some good habits that make you a more efficient studier (this is the key: efficiency, not hours total studied).”
“Working with Andrew has been one of the most important parts of my MCAT preparation. He has done an amazing job of guiding me to resources, helping me plan and organize my studies, and focus on the most important aspects. Andrew has been so positive and enthusiastic, and I would definitely recommend him as a tutor.”

“Studying with Andrew for two months, my score improved by 8 points. He is really friendly and the structure of the tutoring is very efficient. What I like the most about his tutoring is that he knows what is relevant to the actual MCAT and what is not. He also shares his study techniques for each section, which work well! I strongly recommend to study with him if you want to study efficiently within a limited time!”
“Before meeting Andrew, I spent an entire summer studying on a daily basis following Kaplan’s approach only to end up with the same score on my MCAT as I had on my diagnostic. As soon as I started working with Andrew, I saw my score increase. Andrew’s approach to studying has been the most beneficial, in my opinion. He has guided me to the perfect mix of content and practice, which I feel has made all the difference. He has helped me focus my attention on the areas that I can improve in, showed me what resources I should be using, and provided tips that I can use to tackle some of my biggest weaknesses. Andrew also shares his own exam techniques, such as how to approach each type of passage which is really helpful. He is also extremely charismatic and optimistic, which I feel every student studying for the MCAT needs. He was always there to reassure me and adjust my study plan according to my current scores. I would definitely recommend MCAT Self Prep and Andrew to any friend!”
“The biggest reason why I like working with Andrew over other tutors is that you get to put any question you may have into a google doc with him and before your session with him starts he’ll already know your question, what you’re having trouble with, and input helpful diagrams/resources to help you answer all your questions. Usually working with other tutors you have to ask your question, then the tutor has to read it, and then try to figure it out which can be time-consuming. Andrew’s way of tutoring saves you time and I feel like it is the best way to learn because every session you will work on your weaknesses. I feel like I’ve learned a lot working with Andrew and was able to improve my score from a 495 on a Kaplan diagnostic to a 513 on my last AAMC full length before test day.”
“Hey Andrew, The MCAT went much better than I expected. My target score was 502/503 and I ended up scoring a 505. I earned the 91st percentile in Bio/Biochem, and I am very happy with my results. Thank you for your help!” Here is what he has to say about his tutoring session with Andrew: “Andrew was great. During our session, he gave me a study plan specific to me, that I really feel will get me the score I need. He is very easily accessible and does everything in his power to make sure the student is comfortable and confident. I highly recommend Andrew to anyone looking for a structured plan they can follow on their own.”
“I unequivocally recommend Andrew as a tutor for the MCAT. His approach to the MCAT is exactly what you need to see consistent gains in your score. He focuses heavily on leveraging the AAMC materials to help you develop your approach to taking the MCAT as well as understanding how to integrate the content for the AAMC-style questions. This approach, coupled with his guidance on planning both my study schedule and my strategy for each of the sections, were a tremendous help as I prepared for the exam. On top of that, Andrew prepares clear tutoring sessions that really help solidify content with which I struggled the most. Andrew’s focus is not on helping you score better on a testing company’s version of the MCAT, but on the actual AAMC exam. As a result of his help and guidance, I’ve seen steady improvement in my ability to gain points on the AAMC style questions (particularly in the 3 science sections where I needed the most help in improving). All of these benefits coupled with Andrew’s supportive demeanor and responsiveness made him wonderful to work with!”
Dylan took the MCAT a year ago, but was unsatisfied with his original score (a little over a 500). After just the first month of tutoring with Andrew, his score jumped up about 10 points! And just before his test date, he was scoring a little over a 515 on AAMC practice exams. He really enjoyed the tutoring sessions and found them to be much more effective than the sessions he had with tutors from other companies in the past. Here’s what he has to say about his experience:
“Andrew is always very prepared for our tutoring sessions. Before every session, he spends time carefully reviewing your questions, allowing him to explain things very well during each session. Unlike past prep companies and tutors I have had, Andrew really understands what it takes to do well on this test. He will not feed you bogus strategies, and he really understands how to make the best use of your time while studying. What sets Andrew apart from other tutors is his knowledge and his preparation. The preparation he puts into each tutoring session makes a world of difference. Andrew is always familiar and very knowledgeable on every topic we are discussing. If you are looking for a tutor who really understands the material and can answer all of your questions, I would highly recommend Andrew.”
“Andrew is a godsend and personally the most helpful person in my MCAT journey! With his tutoring services, my score improved by 7 points and I regained confidence in myself to do well. Without a shadow of a doubt his teaching philosophy is phenomenal because he goes to great lengths to make sure the material sticks and makes sense. His cheerful personality also makes it easy to connect with him and it feels as if I am learning from him in person even though our sessions are online. Speaking of the tutoring sessions, Andrew is always consistent in starting them on time and keeping a professional attitude. He truly cares about his students and definitely helped me understand my true potential!”
“Being from Canada, and wanting to attend a Canadian medical school, meant earning a very strong CARS score. I tried many different CARS strategies and have done many passages, but nothing really worked. I needed to try something different. I learned about MCAT Self Prep and immediately wanted to give them a try. The reason they stuck out to me was: (1) they are extremely cost friendly (especially versus the other guys), (2) the attractiveness of the one-on-one format, and (3) the flexibility of the online-video-chat format. So far it’s been great. My tutor, Andrew, is extremely helpful and very well prepared. Going into my first session I didn’t know what to expect, but I was extremely, pleasantly surprised. He understood where I went wrong (based on questions I provided to him from certain passages) and offered advice that is helping me avoid making those same mistakes again. I strongly recommend MCAT Self Prep!”
“Andrew helped me feel more confident and prepared. He is extremely kind and answered all my questions through the portal and our sessions. Even though I wish I had more time during the tutoring sessions with him, he was always sure to follow up with emails and texts whenever I needed. He was very well prepared during our sessions and I could always count on him to answer any of my doubts and guide me through this ‘marathon.’ Thanks Andrew!”
Using Andrew’s tutoring program, Timothy was able to improve his score from a 504 to a 521, improving by 10 points during his final month of studying, during which he did most of his sessions:
“Working with Andrew to prepare for the MCAT was the best decision I have made as a pre-medical student. First, we set up a study plan around my difficult class and research schedule so that I could cover all of the content without overwhelming myself. During the final month of studying, sessions with Andrew were the driving force behind increasing my score from a 511 to a 521 on test day. His scheduling was very flexible around my tough schedule and still gave the intimate tutoring experience meeting in person can give. What separates Andrew from any other tutor I have had in the past is his preparedness: he had reasons and supporting material ready for every question I knew I had, and caught a few issues I was not even aware of having before a session started. If you have any issues with problem solving, he has great methods of breaking down and solving problems in a repeatable and intuitive manner and will walk you through his methods.”
George felt that Andrew was able to help his dreams become a reality:
“I called Andrew for tutoring after I had been studying for 5 months and had been incredibly disappointed after scoring a 503 on my practice. Andrew did a phenomenal job of not only helping me with concepts on the MCAT, but also did an amazing job of motivating me when my confidence got broken while studying. His tutoring sessions were impeccable – he really outperformed my highest expectations with how hard he worked to provide detailed notes/supplementary material to help me understand the test better. Over three sessions in the course of a little over a month, I improved my score 10 points to a 513 on test day. I couldn’t be happier with the tutoring I got from Andrew from MCAT Self Prep.”
Lemuel completely surpassed his MCAT goal using Andrew’s program:
“I found MCAT Self Prep as I was looking through youtube for advice and information about how to prepare for the MCAT. I had just finished my finals for the Fall semester of my junior year so I was quite motivated to jump in and start studying. I really appreciated Andrew’s positive attitude, but he was also very realistic and specific about what it would take to get a high MCAT score. One of the things that really stood out to me was Andrew’s emphasis on high quality note cards as well as his program’s affordability compared to other companies. The fall semester of my junior year had been quite difficult and I found that the use of note cards in preparation for my classes was an extremely effective way for me to learn, and having that in mind really drew me to MCAT Self Prep. About midway through my study period, my pre-med adviser told me that for the in-state medical school I was really wanting to attend, I would need to get a 503 on the test. On test day, I got a 514 with a perfect score in Behavioral Sciences. I highly recommend MCAT Self Prep as the preparation is top notch and extremely well made and tailored to efficient, high yield content. It’s been my experience that using note cards is the best study method for the MCAT, as most of the questions are looking for you to apply small pieces of memorized information to different situations. I definitely felt over-prepared on test day, even though leading up to the exam I was worried since I fell behind in the study schedule I made with the program. You can’t find a better mentor or more concise yet comprehensive set of note cards for this massive test than Andrew and his materials!”
After getting a disappointing score on her first MCAT attempt, Bryn signed up for Andrew’s program, and it changed everything:
“I had an extremely difficult time starting to study for the MCAT, because the sheer volume of information you have to commit to memory to get a top score was overwhelming to me. I had not taken most of the premed classes so had A TON of information to learn and didn’t know where to start. Tutoring sessions with Andrew helped change that. His experience with the MCAT and ability to guide my mind to think like the AAMC test writers were instrumental in my ability to succeed. With his help, I was able to achieve my goal score on my final AAMC practice test showing an improvement of 26 points from my first MCAT attempt!! In addition to helping with content and test taking strategies, Andrew was always there to support and encourage me throughout this process. He helped me see the MCAT as an opportunity to thrive instead of a daunting requirement.”
“I really enjoyed tutoring with Andrew – in just three sessions I went from feeling as if the MCAT controlled me to feeling in control while taking exams. Using MCAT Self Prep and Andrew as a tutor, I was able to improve from a 496 on my initial diagnostic to a 514 on test day! This score is an 11 point bump from my previous MCAT two years ago, and will position me to have a chance at a lot of the schools I was looking to apply at and I have even added some more to apply. I think Andrew’s personality is perfect for tutoring – he is flexible, genuine, a great critical thinker, and tells you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear. I recommend anyone struggling with either critical thinking or content on the MCAT to tutor with Andrew, you will see real results!”
“I have the pleasure of having Andrew as my tutor. Before using MCAT Self Prep, I was getting three or four questions wrong in each CARS passage that I read. After tutoring with Andrew I have seen a tremendous increase in my CARS portion and am now only getting one question wrong in each CARS passage. He gave me helpful tips on how to approach the CARS passage which differ from other tips that I had researched from other companies. He took the time and taught me how to read and summarize each passage. I am happy that I decided to use MCAT Self Prep to prepare me for the MCAT. Andrew is an amazing tutor. He answers my emails quickly and has sent me additional information when I was confused on a topic. Andrew is awesome and I am glad that he is my tutor.”
“Before meeting Andrew, I had taken the MCAT and scored a 502, nowhere near what I hoped to achieve. This summer I decided to study for the MCAT again, and luckily I landed on the MCAT Self Prep website. I knew I needed help and Andrew has been there every step of the way and is a tremendous aid to my studies. Andrew is clear and finds a way to explain questions and concepts in a simple, but effective manner. Every session with Andrew is super productive, and I feel that I learn so much. Already, I am seeing major improvements, scoring a 518 on my most recent AAMC practice exam. Without a doubt, I can say that Andrew has played a major part in my recent success, and I would recommend Andrew as a tutor to anyone who needs help improving their MCAT score!”
Despite living halfway across the world, Ali found working with Andrew to be extremely personal and flexible. Here is what he has to say regarding his experience:
“Andrew was a great mentor in assisting me throughout my MCAT preparation journey. His program has everything laid out for you, with modules covering the must-knows as well as guided instructions on how to utilize the Section banks to make practice exams best. Furthermore, he has a very welcoming personality, and was very good with explaining concepts or certain things I did not fully grasp/understand. Overall, my score improved to a 516, and with Andrew’s extra tips, I was able to go into the test with confidence. He is also flexible in terms of meeting, and was able to rearrange things to make it easier on me. Overall, I highly recommend any MCAT student to go about studying with Andrew’s course and assistance.”
“Deciding to sign up for one-on-one tutoring with Andrew was the most valuable investment in my preparation for the MCAT. Not only was the tutoring very affordable, but Andrew spent a considerable amount of time getting to know how I think. He helped me develop strategies unique to my method of test taking, and my scores on practice passages skyrocketed. My score jumped from 498 on my diagnostic test all the way to 516 on the final practice test right before test day. Thanks to Andrew, I had a personalized game plan and the right help along the way that helped me achieve my MCAT goal!” He recently updated Andrew with regards to his medical school application process, saying, “My application process went well! I applied to the Medical University of South Carolina through an early decision program and got in, so I will be going there and I am extremely happy with that.“
“I’ve had sessions with Andrew and I can say that he has been a very helpful tutor. He comes prepared to teach certain concepts and adjusts them to meet the needs of the student. Moreover, his positive attitude is contagious and really helped to shape my confidence about the test. He is much different than the other tutors I’ve had in the past because Andrew focuses on exactly what is necessary improve your score. Even though the sessions are through a video chat, it does not take away anything from what he teaches. If anything, it is much more convenient since we can have our lessons wherever I want! His experience in writing and editing other test prep company passages is especially helpful, as he knows the ins and outs of the test. Overall, I’m grateful for how Andrew has taught me crucial concepts and shaped my attitude for the test. I feel much more confident now than ever before.”
“Andrew is a patient, compassionate, and empathetic tutor. Aside from the fact that he knows a ton about the subject matter (as shown by his high MCAT score), to me, much of his value as a tutor was the confidence he instilled in me as a student. During tutoring sessions, he walked me through passages in a very clear manner, dumbing down convoluted passages into easily-digestible, bite-sized pieces. On test day my mind wavered due to nervousness, but the principles he taught me grounded me, and I felt successful at the end of the test. For these reasons, I would highly recommend Andrew as a tutor.”

“After spending 4K+ on a MCAT testing company on my first attempt, I retook the MCAT with Andrew.The website/system that Andrew offers is the utopia of MCAT preparation. Not only does it prepare you for the MCAT but also, changes your lifestyle and how one should properly approach the MCAT. During the diagnostics & taking FLs my score changed from a 495 to a 510 and I witnessed a 7 point increase on the real deal. Also, English is my second language, so CARS was a bit challenging for me. On top of that, I lost 10 mins of time during the CARS section on the real thing (Yikes). However, thanks to the CARS strategy course, I was able to do just fine on the CARS section despite all the obstacles. With the deluxe pro plan & the great great great great FLASHCARDS that I was able to use anywhere, I got the MCAT score I wanted. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Thank you Andrew for all your work”
“Being a non-traditional medical school applicant with a part-time job, graduate research, and midterms, MCAT Self Prep allowed me to figure out a study routine that was most effective for my busy lifestyle. The only regret I have in my first attempt at the MCAT is not having invested in tutoring with Andrew. Working one-on-one with him allowed me to figure out a study plan specific to my weaknesses and raise my score by 5 points in as little as one month! The tutoring sessions were flexible to my schedule, were just as good if not better than an in-person session, and the honest and helpful insight Andrew’s sessions gave me extensively improved my confidence and performance on the MCAT.”
Alec tried many different programs in his pursuit of a top MCAT score, but found working with Andrew during his final month to be the key to his success:
“Andrew (and MCAT Self Prep in general) has helped me improve my score significantly! Before working with Andrew, I scored a 503 on an AAMC full-length exam. During my 3 sessions with Andrew, he gave honest feedback, tips, and strategies on how to improve my score. With his help and expertise, I was able to improve my score by 7 points in just a month up to a 510 on an AAMC full length. Also, his simple, yet effective tips for CARS improved my score from a 121 to a 125. He has been extremely flexible, easy to contact, prepared, and the most personable tutor I have ever had. I highly recommend Andrew and MCAT Self Prep, as his is method of tutoring is the BEST!”
“After having taken the MCAT once and utilizing different test prep companies, I was still unable to break the 510+ MCAT mark. However, once I learned about Andrew and his website, that goal was no longer a dream. In just over a month, Andrew helped raise my test score from a 497 to a 511 on my last AAMC practice test. Andrew is by far the most personable, caring, and thoughtful MCAT tutor that I have ever met. His schedule is very flexible, and for each of our online meetings, Andrew came fully prepared and clearly answered all of my questions. I 10/10 recommend Andrew and MCATSelfPrep.com for anyone who wants to see improvement and success on the MCAT.”
Benjamin recently texted Andrew with some great news: “I’m pleased to tell you that I received an offer from Texas Tech this morning! Very humbled and blessed, and I could not have done it without your help. I appreciate everything you did to help me be a better MCAT tester.”
Brianna felt like working with Andrew was exactly what she needed to improve on her previous MCAT attempt:
“My name is Brianna Samonte and the first time I took the MCAT I received a 504. To prepare, I used the Kaplan books and study resources, which I thought were helpful at the time but once I started doing AAMC practice, I could tell there was a gap. I stumbled across MCAT Self Prep by chance as I was perusing the internet for personal tutors and am so grateful that I found this site. Andrew’s method for preparing students for the MCAT is engaging, comprehensive, and unique. I loved the way that unlike other test prep companies, MCAT Self Prep utilized resources from various resources, so you don’t just get accustomed to their particular type of material. I also felt that the services offered due to Andrew and his team’s diligence and hard work ethic far exceeded my expectations considering how affordable the program is. Another benefit that I enjoyed was the flexibility of the prep course. Along each step of the way, the course constantly makes adjustments along with your tutor to ensure that you are studying in the most effective and efficient way possible. Because of Andrew and MCAT Self Prep I was able to raise my score from a 504 on my original MCAT to 514 on test day in just 3 short months, finding time to balance a family vacation and other personal activities in between. Andrew and his program are a great fit for any pre-med out there looking to crush the MCAT. I highly recommend MCAT Self Prep!”
Beth feels that Andrew played a major role in her achieving a 100th percentile MCAT score:
“Working with Andrew to organize and prioritize my study schedule was a defining factor in my MCAT outcome. As a non-traditional student, I had a limited amount of time to dedicate to studying for my exam. Andrew was very reassuring and helped me craft a custom schedule that didn’t feel rushed or inadequate. The organization of his course and systematic approach allowed me to dedicate all my time to meaningful interaction with the content. I do not feel like I wasted any time in the studying process– I would have if I had gone it alone. Because of his guidance, I went from a 502 at the beginning of the process to scoring a 524 (100th percentile) on the MCAT in just over two months. I highly recommend MCAT Self Prep. You can trust Andrew and his process.”
Working with Andrew, Sophia was able to improve her score from a 493 to a 513 (89th percentile). Here’s her experience:
“Three words to describe Andrew: SMART, ACCESSIBLE, SUPPORTIVE. In just six sessions throughout my test preparation, Andrew effectively explained difficult but important MCAT topics using images, analogies, and outside resources from his own research. It was clear that he really put in time before each session to prepare for my specific questions and my specific learning style. He was also available over email and text for quick questions and had a flexible schedule so I could make appointments at times that worked best for me. Best of all, he was extremely encouraging but realistic when it came to reaching my goals. This gave me peace of mind while taking practice tests while also pushing me to keep improving my score. Ultimately, I was able to raise the score on my first practice test by 20 points on my official MCAT test day with the help of Andrew’s tutoring and guidance.“
Stephen found the Deluxe Pro Plan plus some tutoring sessions with Andrew to be exactly what he needed to achieve his goal:
“Andrew is an absolutely amazing tutor, and I couldn’t be more pleased with my experience working with him. With his help, my score went up 14 points from my first diagnostic exam to my final MCAT score in just a few months. Not only did he answer all of my questions clearly, but he always showed confidence in me and encouraged me to stay positive and diligent as I prepared for the MCAT. One specific example of how Andrew helped me comes from my last tutoring session with him, just a few days before I took the MCAT. I had studied for the psych/soc section as best as I knew how, but I still wasn’t getting the score I wanted. I asked Andrew if there was anything I could do to improve my score on that section in just a few days, and he knew exactly what to do. He gave me some new ways to study the concepts, ways which helped me understand them on a much deeper level. Then, in just a few days, my score on that section went up by a few points.”
