More About Krista
Hi! I’m Krista! I understand how stressful and discouraging studying for the MCAT can be. I took the MCAT in March of 2022, so while I was just in your shoes, I can confidently say that there is no better feeling than seeing your hard work pay off. I want to help you achieve the score of your dreams and feel confident throughout the process!
My MCAT journey was a year-long battle of trying to create a solid study plan, stick to it, and retain all the information. When I started, I thought I would be taking the MCAT in 3 months. I was quickly overwhelmed by all the different study materials on the internet and struggled to find a good note-taking strategy. I didn’t feel prepared at all for the test. It took 6 months for me to find MCAT Self Prep. And wow, my sanity was saved! I finally felt like I had all the resources I needed to improve my score.
I took a psychological approach to the test. I learned all the different ways people categorize and retain information and incorporated them into my own study plan. The month before the exam, I took two practice tests a week. I would book a study room in the public library, eat the same food, and wear the exact same outfit every time. I know that sounds a little insane, but I owe my score to this and all my study tricks. Now that the MCAT is behind me, I am in the application process and enjoying my gap year. I am a Cajun girl from Louisiana that loves hiking, camping, and all things outdoors. I’m a bookworm and a puzzle enthusiast. I like to think that I am easy to get along with and talk to, but I guess that’s for you to find out!
I can’t wait to start working with you! I can help you create a personalized study plan for your unique learning style and personality. Together, we will fine-tune your strengths and identify and overcome your weaknesses. The MCAT is a wild journey, but not one you have to do alone.
Hear What Krista’s Students are Saying About Her
“If you’re looking for a tutor, stop right here because Krista is one of the best you can get. She’s one of those people who are born to teach. She tutored me in physics and then became my MCAT tutor. It is not enough for her for me to learn the concept, she focuses on helping me retain it. She’s got all sorts of quirky, unique studying tricks. Because of her, I now have a “MCAT outfit” that I wear whenever I take a practice test and when I review it. This is supposed to help with memory retrieval, which is one of my weaknesses. After doing this for a month, I have seen a 10+ increase in my practice MCAT score! Krista also helped my breakthrough in CARS. We read the passage together and then she listens as I explain my reasoning for the question’s answer choices. Just having her there to listen and offer assistance when necessary has helped me not second guess as much. Krista, thank you so much for your patience and confidence in me!!!”
Krista has been incredibly helpful during my time studying for the MCAT. Not only did she help with content and strategy, but she helped motivate me when everything became very overwhelming and she truly cared about seeing me improve. I am so thankful for all of her help!!!
“My biggest struggle during the MCAT has been applying my knowledge to answer the questions. No matter how many times I would review material, when it came to applying to the passages, I would blank. Krista created a guide for me to use when reading every passage. It’s like she reached into my mind and knew exactly what I needed. I went up from a 498 baseline to a 510 after working with her. I highly recommend her!”
If you were like me and are scrolling through the different tutors’ pages trying to see which one stands out, look no further! Krista is the way to go if you are looking for a tutor who will not only increase your knowledge base and understanding of the MCAT, but also build you up personally to be able to attack the test confidently. She truly prioritizes your success and learning style. I was hesitant to receive any tutors help but eventually decided to invest my time in Krista because of the amazing reviews she had – to say it paid off would be an under statement! She broke questions down that I struggled with and made them seem simple. She gave me the tools to approach the exam more logically. I used to struggle to score above 499, and after working with Krista I’ve been able to score 504+ on practice tests. I believe a lot of my improvement is due to her increasing my confidence and ability to make the MCAT “easy”.
“When I started studying the physics section, the concepts were so foreign and overwhelming. Krista was a life-saver! Krista is so patient and encouraging which allowed me to feel comfortable asking questions and admitting when I didn’t understand. She has an incredible knack for explaining the concepts with real-life examples. One of my favorite ways she taught me is how we would approach a question together. She always gave me time to figure it out myself and if I was stumped, she would give me subtle hints to help guide me. Therefore, I always felt confident that I could tackle the problem by myself, and when exam day came, I remembered all her little hints. Thank you Krista!”
“If there’s a single word to describe her, it’s patient. Even after tutoring for hours, not once did I see Krista look like she wasn’t having fun. She would get excited when her tutee made a breakthrough and was always compassionate, understanding, and motivational. After hearing how great of a teacher she was, I asked her for help, mostly focusing on chemistry. She completely changed her teaching methods to adapt to my learning style. I am a visual learner, so she taught me how to use highlighters to show where reactions were taking place. If there is a concept that you feel you’ll never understand, Krista will do everything she can to make sure you come out on top.”
“Krista rocks. She is the reason that I can’t ride in a car without wanting to calculate my velocity and acceleration. I did not understand physics at all when I tried learning on my own. Once Krista started teaching me in her creative, simple way, I actually could engage in class and not feel like I was drowning. She has so many math hacks that helped speed up my problem-solving, which really helped on the MCAT. I learned to love physics because of Krista. I couldn’t have asked for a better tutor.”
