More About Helen

Hi there! I’m Helen and I am excited to help you along your MCAT journey! I graduated from MIT, majoring in computer science and biology, with a concentration in education. Although I graduated years ago, I recently decided to make a career change and enter medicine. After researching a study plan that fit with my work schedule, which spoiler alert— included MCAT Self Prep, I scored a 523 on the MCAT, with a 130+ across every section. I hope to share what I’ve learned during my experience preparing for the MCAT in order to help you improve your score too!

Some more about me: I have extensive tutoring and TA experience across a variety of subjects, and take great pride in tailoring my tutoring sessions to the needs of each individual student. I especially like to drill into understanding the root causes that may be preventing students from reaching their fullest potential. With me, you can be sure to learn highly effective AAMC and general test-taking strategies that will help you excel on test day.

My own MCAT journey had its fair share of ups and downs. Beyond just learning to build the stamina for such an exam, I had to re-learn many concepts based on how the AAMC prefers to test them. From careful study and lots of practice, I actually turned my two lowest scoring sections, Chem/Phys and CARS, into my two highest scoring sections!

As for my other interests, I enjoy brewing kombucha (since before it got popular!), running with my dog, and teaching yoga. These activities were instrumental for me in order for studying to feel sustainable— I can’t wait to hear which activities help you relax too!

I cannot wait to share everything I’ve learned to help you achieve a great MCAT score. I look forward to hearing from you!

Best,
Helen

Sam

Helen was one of the best tutors I have worked with who truly is committed to her students’ success. She has an exceptional ability to explain complex ideas in a way that makes you feel confident in being able to answer questions in those topics at a later date. Although I tend to prefer learning topics on my own, Helen was great in providing targeted focus in areas I needed the most support in, and was able to customize instruction based on my requests.

Garrett

Helen is an outstanding tutor and mentor who has helped me achieve academic success in subjects that I previously struggled with. From learning with her, I have also been able to become a tutor myself, learning many of the skills I rely on from her in order to share with other students. They say a good marker of a teacher is when students are able to teach the content themselves, and Helen is able to break down concepts such that you are then able to become experts and teach it to others. She is patient, knowledgeable, and committed to helping her students achieve their goals. I cannot recommend her enough!

MCAT Self Prep Deluxe

Angela

Helen is one of the most talented tutors I have ever worked with. She made connections for me between seemingly unrelated concepts that really helped connect content areas and gave me a deeper understanding of the material. Her help has helped me score higher than I could have originally hoped for and I highly recommend her sessions for anyone looking to get holistic support in concept and test taking strategies.

I have had the pleasure of working with Helen as a tutor for the past year, and I cannot recommend her enough. She is both patient and understanding with me, and is able to turn on a dime to address a new concept or question that may arise. I found her teaching style to be both engaging and personalized, which allowed me to learn at my own pace while building my confidence.
