More About Maxwell

Hi! I’m Max and I am very excited to help you along your MCAT journey! I graduated from The Ohio State University studying biomedical science with a minor in creative writing . I am currently a first-year medical school at Northwestern’s Feinberg School of Medicine and am hoping for a career that combines my passions of surgery, pediatrics, and academic medicine. Whether it be tutoring during free periods, helping colleagues pick up their ACT scores, or just being the friend to reach out to with an MCAT question, I have always prioritized and loved watching others succeed.

I have grown up with a family of diverse talents and interests. My older sister Madeline designs for Adidas Originals–yes, she has met Kanye West, Beyonce, and many others. My two younger brothers, Michael and Matthew, each love the more mechanical sides of the world: Michael is an aviation engineering major, and Matthew just finished restoring a 1987 Honda motorcycle. Having grown up in this household, I understand and appreciate the variety of ways in which people can learn. While some revel in repetitive practice, others find more success through demonstrations and practicalities. My goal for you is to find your best strategy to climb this MCAT mountain and emerge victorious on the other side.

My own MCAT journey certainly featured its struggles. Though I loved working on engines, MCAT physics was not so practical, and I drilled misconceptual questions so hard that I began dreaming in force diagrams. I love to read too, but CARS passages on a thousands-year-old painting were closer to putting me to sleep than enlivening me to an author’s perspective. Rather than just hope for physics passages on engine pistons or Hemingway-only CARS, I adjusted, studied, and applied unique routines to approach every question with a positive, conquering attitude. In the end, I gave my best and achieved a score that I am proud of. As I have grown from this experience and those of my students, I am ready to share this ambitious attitude with you as we sublimate struggles into a great MCAT score.

When I’m not studying anatomy or pipetting in my cancer lab, I enjoy working on my car and motorcycle, performing standup comedy, and writing creative nonfiction. Each of these played an essential role in shaking off stress during my MCAT journey, and I’m excited to hear what helps you relax!

Again, I am really excited to begin working with you. I know how stressful and overwhelming this MCAT beast can be at times, and I promise to give you my very best every session. As your brain swells with amino acid knowledge and your scores improve, you will finish this journey knowing you gave it everything you have, and I will be there to make sure you are proud of your score. I look forward to hearing from you!

“Max is a wonderful tutor who I would recommend to students at all learning levels. I struggled with physics at times, and Max was good at breaking down complex problems to make them more tangible. He also is great at connecting difficult concepts to real-world applications, which is especially important for doing well on the MCAT. He has a lighthearted personality, is fun to work with, and can honestly answer pretty much any question you have.”

“Max is one of the most patient, understanding people I’ve ever had tutor me. He does an amazing job of distilling complex ideas into simple concepts that I can understand, and when I still don’t understand, he finds a unique way to explain the material to me. Whenever I have a question, Max was always responsive and immediately found time for me, which I am very appreciative of!”

“I was so overwhelmed with the sheer volume that I needed to study to achieve an optimal score on the MCAT. With my current family and work life, I felt like maybe medical school just wasn’t for me if I didn’t have the time to do what needed to be done to do well on the MCAT. However, I still went ahead and I bought the Deluxe Pro Bundle from MCAT Self Prep and still felt like I needed help creating a viable plan of attack that meshed well with my current family life and work life. I knew that I needed someone to come along side me and help me create such a study plan. I browsed the tutors on MCAT Self Prep’s website. For some reason I felt drawn to set up a tutor session with Maxwell and it has been the absolute best decision I have made so far throughout this whole process. Getting guidance from someone who’s walked the walk and not only achieved a great MCAT score but got accepted into an amazing Medical School is just priceless in my opinion. Maxwell helped put my mind at ease and let me know that not only is it possible for me to do well on the MCAT but he made me feel like a worthy candidate for medical school. From there he helped me create the study plan that I had so desperately needed and helped me feel like I am studying effectively and efficiently especially given the fact that, again, I work full time and am married with two small boys. I am confident that with the plan that Maxwell and I laid out that I will crush my goals and put myself in an optimal position to be accepted to the school of my dreams. A huge heartfelt thanks to Maxwell and to MCAT Self Prep for helping me navigate a huge life change!!”

Please note that if you have a question for me regarding the website or a technical issue of some kind, please check our detailed FAQs.

How we Matched up the Khan Academy Passages with the eCourse Lessons

Each lesson of the eCourse contains links to 1 to 5 Khan Academy science passages for the purpose of providing you with non-AAMC material to practice your science passage reading skills on. By completing all the linked passages within every lesson, you will have finished all the freely available Khan Academy science passages.

To match up the Khan Academy Science Passages with the eCourse lessons, we carefully examined the passage and question content of each one. Then we decided which lesson of the eCourse best correlated with that content. You may notice that some passages don’t match up perfectly with the current lesson. If they don’t match up with the current lesson, they should match up with one of the previous lessons in the module. We did this carefully so that you could practice your science passage reading skills on passages that contain the content you’ve already learned.

Why we don’t recommend non-AAMC CARS practice questions

We recommend practicing CARS by reading non-AAMC CARS passages but not doing the associated practice problems. The reason we don’t recommend doing the practice problems is because the MCAT is written by the AAMC. They have a very unique style in which they write CARS practice questions that third-party companies (try as they might) are unable to replicate. When students spend time on non-AAMC CARS practice problems, they get familiar with the wrong style of questioning, leading them to overthink and incorrectly respond to the questions written by the AAMC. Thus, it is in your best interest to solely practice on AAMC CARS practice questions.

That said, we highly recommend practicing your reading skills on non-AAMC CARS passages. In our Ultimate CARS Strategy Course, we provide you with 1,000 free CARS passages and 100+ homework assignments, giving you ample material to practice on. Reading countless passages while practicing the proper reading habits and strategies will prepare you well to conquer the CARS section as it was written by the AAMC.

Which books do the lessons match up with?

The books we use in each lesson are linked below. We plan to stick with these older editions of the books since very little has changed and the older editions are much more affordable:

First Edition of the Kaplan 7-book Series
First Edition of the Princeton 7-book Series

Do the chapters match up perfectly?

The Kaplan Books, Princeton Books, and Khan Academy Videos were all produced by different authors. For this reason, there are some chapters in the Kaplan Book or Princeton Book that are not even found in the Khan Academy Videos and vice versa. For instance, the Kaplan and Princeton Books have chapters that cover certain experimental procedures that the Khan Academy Videos do not cover.

Our goal in matching up the books with the videos was to correlate the content as best as possible while also covering ALL the content from every resource. For this reason, when nothing in the Kaplan Books matched up with one of the video playlists, instead of leaving the reading assignment for Kaplan blank, we inserted material that did not fit in anywhere else (i.e. one of those chapters on an experimental procedure that was not covered by Khan Academy). So, when the assignment doesn’t appear to match up right, please know that this was intentional.

*If you follow the reading assignments outlined, you will finish the entire Kaplan 7-book series and/or Princeton 7-book series by the time you finish all 10 content modules.

Do the sections match up perfectly?

If the sections assigned in our eCourse do not match up with the sections contained in your content review book, you may have a different edition. The sections should still match up the large majority of the time, but in the rare instance that they don’t, I’d recommend simply reading sections that do match up and saving the ones that do not for a future lesson.
