More About Marie
For me, the MCAT was this daunting, overwhelming task I knew nothing about. I spent months asking around and researching on my own on the “best” ways of studying. All I learned from this was that this process can be expensive. There were hundreds of dollars of books to buy, practice exams I had to purchase, and to top it all off, everyone seemed to be recommending courses that would cost a small fortune. Luckily for me, a friend introduced me to MCAT Self Prep. With this website as my trusted guide, I was able to learn more about the test, make a study plan, and most importantly, stay organized and on top of my studies. The introductory module gave me a much needed background on what this test is all about and how to approach it. Then, by following the lessons one by one, I slowly began to feel like I had a grasp on how to study efficiently and effectively. I used MCAT Self Prep until the day of my test, and I can honestly accredit much of my success to it.
Although much of the stress for me was in planning and figuring out how to approach the test, I also know the stress of finding time to study. I was taking 17 credits, playing a club sport and planning for my semester abroad. Although it wasn’t always easy, I found the time to study and having a plan was essential for this. I know how hectic life can be, but I can help you study effectively to fit your busy life, because I had to do this as well.
I love helping students, and I have been tutoring since high school where I tutored math classes in review sessions or one-on-one. I also have held many study sessions for classmates taking classes I took in semesters prior. Additionally, I have been a volleyball coach for about four years now. This has made me learn the importance of planning practices that will target players’ weaknesses to help them improve and has given me the ability to explain one concept or movement in a variety of different ways. Although slightly different than tutoring, my coaching mentality will help keep things positive even when they are looking grim, and push you past some low points in studying.
A little more about me, I love to play and coach volleyball, hike, and travel. Recently, I spent a semester in New Zealand where I got to combine my love for travel and hiking while I explored a beautiful country for four months. I enjoy meeting new people, and I like to think that I am easy to talk to or come to for help.
If you are scared or intimidated by the MCAT, I am here to help! I hope to bring some positivity to this process and lighten your load as much as I can. I am ready to tackle any topics you can bring me, and my favorite subject is organic chemistry, which I know can be one of the tougher points. I look forward to analyzing CARS passages, reviewing some biology, and attacking the hardest of physics problems with you!
I can't wait to get started with you! 🙂
