More About Emily
Hi! I’m Emily and I’m so excited to help you on your journey to achieving your dream MCAT score and becoming a doctor! I have extensive experience tutoring students in individual and group settings, and my favorite part is always hearing their stories and coming up with a plan that best maximizes their potential while still allowing for a good work-life balance.
As an undergraduate Global Affairs major at Yale, I only took the required premedical science courses, and I ended up having to teach myself a lot of the information required to perform well on the MCAT from scratch, so I know firsthand how daunting the content and question styles can be. Like MCAT Self Prep recommends, I was able to break my studying into manageable pieces, focusing on high yield information and consolidating information in as many different ways as possible. For the past six months, I have been writing and editing practice questions for MCAT Self Prep, so I remain very familiar with the content map for studying. I would love to share what worked for me and tailor a plan and tutoring sessions to your individual strengths and weaknesses so that we can take your MCAT score to the next level! I especially enjoy helping students with biochemistry – which went from being my worst section to my highest score on test day with diligent practice and a better understanding of how to study the material – and CARS. In another life, I think I would have been a lawyer, and I can teach you my strategies for making reading comprehension a slam dunk!
A little bit more information about me: I’m currently a second-year medical student at the University of Virginia. I ran cross country and track in college, and when I’m not studying, you can find me either hitting the trails in my running shoes, hanging out with my friends, or with my nose in the latest New York Times bestseller. After college, I spent two years as a management consultant, so I know how to develop a strategic roadmap for things like studying. I also mentor premedical student athletes at UVA, and have found that to be a really rewarding experience, just like tutoring! And outside of all that, I am doing research with the cardiothoracic surgery group at UVA on how socioeconomic disparities affect surgical outcomes.
Studying for the MCAT can be stressful and overwhelming, and it is easy to feel lost and alone. But it doesn’t have to be that way – I am ready to be with you every step of the way and support you however possible.

Hear What Emily’s Students are Saying About Her
“Emily is an excellent tutor who always makes students feel calm, supported, and like they are on the right track.She makes sure that students understand not only why the correct answer is correct, but also why other answers are incorrect, so that they will be prepared for different iterations of questions on various topics.If you need someone to help you improve your MCAT score, Emily is a great choice. ”
“Before I started tutoring with Emily, my goal was to gain more study strategies that would specifically help me during the Chemistry/Physics and Biology sections of the MCAT. Not only did Emily help me gain these new strategies for these sections but I gained a new sense of confidence about taking this daunting test. I really enjoyed her teaching methods because she never directly gave me the answer to any of my questions when it came to understanding the passage or struggling to solve the passage questions. She always would guide me to these answers and I thought this was extremely helpful because it allowed me to understand how to solve these questions on my own. During my time with working with Emily, I saw an improvement in my practice test scores. I would highly recommend working with Emily because she is such an amazing and caring person as she truly wanted me to do extremely well on the MCAT. ”
“Emily was beyond helpful with preparing me for the MCAT! She assured me that everyone’s pre-health experience is unique and that people learn in different ways. Since I know I learn through practice and problem solving, she gave me resources of that nature. It was extremely helpful because I felt heard. The advice I received was tailored to me, who I am as a student, my learning style, and my timeline – she wasn’t just giving me a cookie cutter answer that checked off all the boxes. As I navigate through the (very stressful) pre health process, I know I have Emily as a support system and someone I can look up to!”
“Emily’s help was invaluable during my application process. Her guidance on secondaries and interview preparation gave me the confidence that my application was the best it could be. She always addressed my questions in detail and came prepared to every session. Emily is patient, encouraging, kind, and genuinely wants to see her students succeed. Any student is lucky to work with Emily, and I cannot recommend her enough! “
“Ever since I started tutoring with Emily, I became more and more confident with my abilities to be successful on test day. She was always completely prepared to assist me and answer my questions, and always encouraged me and gave me confidence. Her ability to lead me through a passage and subtly provide feedback to enhance my comprehension is incredible and I feel that she has really made a difference in my ability to succeed.”
