More About Theo
I’m currently applying to medical schools and finishing up my degree in Neuroscience at Brigham Young University. I grew up in Montana and so I’ve been spoiled by lazy summer rivers, the coldest powder in North America, and a stillness experienced only around high alpine lakes. I love pounding ski slopes, downhill single-tracks, and cool granite faces in my spare time. Recently, I’ve started running ultramarathons and I hope to run the John Muir trail in California next summer.
I started my MCAT journey completely lost. I knew that I didn’t want to spend thousands of dollars on a prep course that wasn’t catered to my needs, but I didn’t know how to study on my own until I found MCAT Self Prep. With MCAT Self Prep, I was able to structure my study trajectory to ultimately achieve a perfect 528 score on the MCAT. Now, I am so excited to give back to students and teach you what I learned! As a teaching assistant, I’ve won multiple awards for my ability to personalize my teaching with clarity. I’ll be able to walk you through how I studied and the strategies that I used for CARS, science passages, and tackling tricky discrete questions. But more than the strategies, I hope to help you understand the MCAT so you can walk into the test with the mindset that you need in order to succeed.
I also hope to help you on your journey through applying to medical school, from getting research experience to crafting your narrative with volunteering. With previous research, I have published five papers (three of them as the first author), presented at multiple conferences, and won awards for those presentations. I’ve also won national awards for my research, volunteering, and academic merit.
The last thing that you need to know about me is that I am passionate about mental health. My dad lives with bipolarity and it has been very formative as I’ve become older. I feel obligated to speak up about mental illness because so few people do and it has lead to some incredible opportunities. At 17, I delivered a TEDx talk about my experiences with my dad and through that, I started speaking for mental health organizations all around the country. So if you find yourself struggling with your mental health while studying for the MCAT, don’t hesitate to reach out.

Hear What Theo's Students are Saying About Him
"I'm a junior now, but Theo was first my tutor when I was in my freshman general chemistry class. I know from going to other TA's test reviews, and his, that he was definitely the best TA in our class. Ever since then, he's been a chemistry TA for other teachers, but one which I still go to for information, and clarification. One key thing that I've noticed Theo does, is he really takes the time to understand not only the process of solving problems, but truly making sure that he understands the concepts so well that he can explain WHY a certain path will lead you to the answer. Because of this, he is able to work well with students who may approach things a little differently, and adequately address their needs in a kind, but very direct and helpful way. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for help studying in any subject, especially for the MCAT."
"Theo is a stellar tutor. He went above and beyond to help me understand difficult chemistry ideas and concepts. He is a very friendly and approachable person and helped me to get out of my comfort zone and participate more when tutoring one-on-one. I would, without a doubt, recommend Theo to anyone looking to work towards an incredible MCAT score."
"Theo is one of the most outstanding students I have ever known. Both in an academic sense and from a character standpoint, he demonstrates a high standard. Despite this, he maintains a humble attitude that helps him relate to everyone in a personal way. I would strongly recommend him as a tutor, as he could give great help to any student preparing for the MCAT. Theo has a dynamic personality that makes him fun to be around and is a great tutor. I know that he would help any student to increase their score on the MCAT."
"I had Theo tutor me all throughout organic chemistry and all I can say is that he is a phenomenal tutor. He is able to teach the content in a clear and precise way with many examples and practice problems to match. If you're looking for an MCAT tutor look no further as he has had years of practice tutoring many college students and I was lucky enough to be one of them."
"During my study for the MCAT, Theo would often clarify scientific principles in a way that I could understand them. I worked for hours to fully comprehend certain MCAT materials but it wasn’t until Theo explained it that I felt confident. He genuinely cares for the success of the students he tutors and will do anything to help them accomplish their goals. Studying with Theo is a lot of fun because of his happy demeanor and positive attitude. I highly recommend Theo as an MCAT tutor. He knows how to organize a successful study plan and will help boost anyone's MCAT score. "
