More About Jess

Hi there! My name is Jess and I’m thrilled to support you on your MCAT journey. I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in psychology and am currently in the process of applying to medical schools. I’m a teacher by heart and have enjoyed mentoring students in psychology courses and anatomy lab for a total of six semesters. To me, teaching is not just about explaining the material, but understanding students’ strengths and weaknesses and collaborating together to create a rock-solid study plan. I believe that being a teacher also means being a mentor and coach, and I love getting to know my students. I’ll be here for you through the ups and downs of MCAT studying and will be rooting for you on test day!

I stumbled upon MCAT Self Prep at the beginning of my MCAT studying, and immediately found the resources to be incredibly helpful. I knew that I had a strong foundation for the psychology/sociology section, but had some large content gaps as well -- looking at you, o-chem! What I love about MCAT Self Prep is the individualized approach; through frequent mini-exams I was able to track my progress and adjust my studying to account for my biggest weaknesses. The results of months of hard work got me a score I was ecstatic with, and I know you can achieve the same! If you are looking for someone who knows the ins and outs of the MCAT and will provide you with encouragement, support, and study tips along the way, I’m confident that we can work together to get you to your dream score!

Although my gap year is keeping me busy, I have hobbies that I absolutely adore. I’m a huge animal lover, and spend lots of time volunteering at a local cat rescue. I also love reading; my favorite genres are sci-fi and thriller. My guilty pleasure is reality TV -- there’s nothing more relaxing than winding down and watching The Bachelor with friends! You can find me at local state parks on most weekends, and I hope to visit every national park at some point.

Again, I am so excited to begin tutoring with you. Studying for the MCAT can be super overwhelming, and that’s okay! We will get through it together by creating your own study plan, working through tough content, and tackling test anxiety and self-doubt. I’m confident that you can get a fantastic score, and I’ll be here for you every step of the way. I look forward to hearing from you!

Best wishes,
Jess Hack

  • “Jess is an awesome tutor and I would certainly recommend her to be an MCAT tutor. Jess helped me learn anatomy, and I know she is able to provide thorough explanations for a variety of science concepts. What I appreciated the most about Jess was that she took the time to go through the material with me and ensure that I understood the structures and functions of anatomy. She would guide me to the solutions instead of simply giving them to me. Jess is caring and compassionate about her work, and I would highly recommend her to individuals looking to increase their MCAT score.”
