More About Ellery

Hi there! I’m Ellery and I am thrilled to help you succeed along your MCAT journey! Having just taken the MCAT in August 2023, I know how stressful and frustrating studying for this exam can be. But I also know that having a solid study plan and sticking to it are cornerstones of a successful test day! I am here to help you along that path as much as I can and to support you in specific content areas that you find particularly daunting, challenging, or hard to retain. Using MCAT Self Prep’s resources myself, I was able to squeeze all of my MCAT studying in and make huge gains in my practice scores along the way, only to exceed them even further on test day. All of that is not to brag (gross), but to say that I stand strongly by MCAT Self Prep’s resources and methodology. They helped me reach higher than I thought I could, and I know they will do the same for you!

I studied Molecular Biology, Religion, and Biomedical Research at UCLA, which allowed me to hone a broad range of skills that I now hope to use to serve you in your studying. My science content classes gave me insight into the mechanisms of biology, biochemistry, chemistry, and physics required for the MCAT, but more importantly they taught me how to break down data to synthesize what tables, graphs, and experimental schemas are telling us, something the MCAT loves to throw our way. Additionally, my social science and religion courses sharpened my critical reading skills which I hope to help you develop as well.

I will be applying to medical school in the 2024-25 application cycle, so I have submitted my primary application and am awaiting applications to be released in order to hopefully receive some secondaries! In the meantime, I also work as a full-time high school biology teacher in New York City, so I definitely know a thing or two about explaining concepts to students and helping them succeed! When I am not lesson planning, grading, or coaching my girls on the Varsity Basketball team, I am going for a run or hike, or cooking and baking with whatever sporting event is currently being televised on in the background. These activities are a few things that bring me joy, something super key to taking your mind off crazy MCAT study days.

Again, I am so excited to meet you and start assisting you in your MCAT study journey! This is a beast of a test, but it is absolutely manageable with the right plan, mindset, and tutor in your corner.

You’ve got this! And I’ve got you.

Best,

Ellery 🙂

Martina

“Ellery has been an incredibly helpful resource during my last month of MCAT prep! As someone who really struggles with science subjects, she helped me feel capable of succeeding in both chemistry and physics. She does a great job of breaking down complex concepts and she helped me to develop test-taking skills that really improved my content understanding. Since starting tutoring with Ellery, my score and confidence in taking the MCAT have greatly improved. She is very patient and always ensures that I not only understand what the correct answer is, but that I understand why that answer is correct and how to eliminate answer choices. Ellery is incredibly knowledgeable and a wonderful tutor, and I would recommend her to anyone needing extra help studying for the MCAT!”

Ayushi

“Ellery is one of the best tutors at MCAT Self Prep. She is kind, caring, and most importantly flexible. She is not one of the tutors who just sits there and looks at you while trying to figure out the answer to the question, she actually goes out of the way to actually teach you the material and why I got the question wrong or right. She never makes me feel stupid for not understanding material and also motivates me that we still have time for the exam. A very positive attitude, I would recommend her to anyone.”

She made the learning experience enjoyable, and her approachable demeanor instantly put me at ease, making me feel comfortable asking even the most basic questions.

Jerryn

“Through tutoring with Ellery I have made significant improvement in my comprehension on passage reading related to questions as well as overall understanding of all the science concepts I ask questions about each week. Ellery and I have created a great balanced schedule that has both passage practice as well as general practice on questions and content review which works great for me and my learning style. She spends time going through each concept I am confused with or need a quick refresher on and allows me to explain my thinking on each passage question while steering me in the right direction when needed. Ellery’s personality is bubbly and fun, she makes tutoring a good learning environment and does not make any question or comment I make seem like I am dumb. Having the flexibility of meeting online has been great because it allows me to meet with her wherever I am and allows me to have flexibility around my studying schedule. Overall Ellery is a wonderful tutor and I would recommend her to anyone needed extra help or support when studying for the MCAT!

Ellery is really personable and clearly teaches you material. Ellery has also helped me enhance my writing, and when editing, she does not just tell you what’s wrong and how to improve, but why a specific area should be improved to help overall understanding. All of the times I have worked with her, her personality and her commitment to help improve one’s writing or test scores is evident.”

Claudia

“In a single word, Ellery is incredible. Working with Ellery was transformative for my studies. I had already taken the MCAT previously, and one of my main struggles was reading comprehension. Ellery did an amazing job teaching me how to approach passages, both in scientific and critical reading sections. She explained clearly how to read confusing phrases as well as how to infer certain concepts. Ellery was exceptionally patient, understanding, and kind, and she always came equipped with tailored strategies and materials that addressed my specific needs. Additionally, Ellery was super flexible, adaptable, and accommodating of my schedule, which made the whole tutoring process seamless and stress-free. Not only did I see a significant improvement in my MCAT score once I started meeting with Ellery, but, more importantly, the confidence that I have gained in the material and in approaching test-day is better than I could have ever imagined. I cannot praise her enough; I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone in need of a tutor!”

“Ellery is truly an amazing tutor. From her guidance to patience to extensive knowledge, she ensured that I understood the topics and even sent materials for extra practice. I’m usually a structured person and liked to plan out my tutoring sessions beforehand to ensure time is spent well. Each and every time, Ellery never failed to incorporate my study plan into our sessions. As the MCAT is a very daunting exam and can take a toll on my self-confidence, Ellery always remained extremely encouraging and positive, which was extremely helpful in combatting my imposter syndrome. Overall, she was a great tutor and pivotal to my success.
