More About Theo

I’m a medical student at UCLA and scored a perfect 528 on the MCAT!I hope you can use my success to improve your score too! I finished with my degree in neuroscience summa cum laude and I loved my time in undergrad. I love skiing, backpacking, and rock climbing in my spare time. Just because you’re pre-med doesn’t mean you can’t have fun! 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 didn’t know how to study on my own until I found MCAT Self Prep. I was able to customize 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! The most important way a tutor can boost your score is by showing you how the AAMC thinks. After hundreds of hours researching MCAT logic, I can confidently give my students key testing strategies that work. I focus on giving all my students high-yield, AAMC-specific test taking strategies. These strategies will simplify the complexity of the MCAT and improve your understanding of how the AAMC justifies correct answers. I’ve helped almost a hundred of students increase their score many points, even for students re-taking the MCAT! 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. I’ve been a teaching assistant for general and organic chemistry for multiple years. I’ve won multiple awards for my ability to personalize my teaching with clarity. So 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’ve now tutored over 100 students. Read about their experience below!

I hope to also help you on your journey 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. I additionally spent countless hours trying to understand what medical school admissions committees want! This helped me interview at many top medical schools and ultimately get accepted at schools including Harvard, Harvard+MIT, Penn, Columbia, WashU, and my dream school—UCLA!! What’s even more important is that I’ve now helped students get accepted at top programs (even without 100th percentile scores). I want to pass this deeper understanding of the admissions process on to you too!

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.

Alex

“Working with Theo has been so great as I continue to study for the MCAT. This is the second time I am studying for the exam and I was skeptical about how much tutoring would actually help me. But working with Theo has been an amazing experience and I feel like I am learning so much to help me succeed on test day. My score has jumped over 10 points!! Theo makes the sessions very fun and easy, I mean I actually enjoy doing CARS practice (I know that sounds crazy but its true!) and I feel like I actually understand how to study for the exam in an effective way! I would 100% recommend tutoring with Theo, he will definitely make sure you are the most prepared you can be on test day!!”

Zach

“Working with Theo for MCAT preparation has been an extremely positive experience. We’ve worked together for dozens of hours together in personalized sessions and they would give me a boost that would last a whole week.Theo not only demonstrates a mastery of the sciences but also excels as a master tutor, teacher, and communicator for all MCAT topics. My retake score jumped 11 points! His skills have helped me to form a tailored MCAT plan, improve the efficiency of my studying, and to help me master my weak areas and create connections between topics. From planning an optimal test date to developing a strategy to handle CARS, with Theo’s help, I feel confident and prepared for every aspect of the MCAT.”

Shreya

“Theo has been an amazing tutor to work with! Before I started working with Theo, my scores remained stagnant and I was suffering with CARS and Bio/Biochem. Theo really helped me rethink how to approach the question and try to redirect my own thought process to match the AAMC logic. I saw improvement on my understanding of the passages, and how to approach reading them correctly and efficiently. He helped me with any questions I’d have outside of tutoring hours and would go out of his way to give me detailed explanations.

He would answer any questions I had no matter how long and tedious they were, and reassured me when I started spiraling into a negative headspace. I remember taking FL-2 and scoring a 123 in the CARS section after hours and hours of prep. Theo refused to let me fall into a negative loop and encouraged me to see where I went wrong and how to avoid the same mistakes I made on that section. I am ecstatic to say that my CARS score jumped 6 points to a 129 on FL-4 and I made a 129 on my actual MCAT. To whoever is reading this, please do not give up on yourself and your abilities. When I felt like I wasn’t capable, Theo always encouraged me and made me feel like I was making progress. Honestly a huge part about studying efficiently is your mindset and thinking positively, and he helped me cultivate that! I highly recommend him, he’s an easy person to talk and will provide you with the resources and support you need.”

“Theo us incredibly knowledgeable about how to succeed on the MCAT. More than that, Theo takes the necessary time off-the-clock to create a personalized approach to each of us. He has the ability to perceive what’s stopping his students from coming to the right answers and bridging that gap immediately. He is great at teaching content but is especially skilled at teaching how to look at different question types so we can use our knowledge to get to the right answers as often as possible. Theo cares, he is excellent at what he does, and he will help you succeed. Use him as a tutor, you won’t regret it!”

“I started working with Theo when I took an MCAT practice exam and realized I wasn’t getting the scores that I wanted. He helped me come up with a completely different study schedule that would best fit my strengths and weaknesses. He gave me an excellent excel sheet to monitor my progress. I’ve now worked with Theo for months, but after working with him for just a few weeks, I saw my CARS scores go up immediately. Theo is incredible at teaching you how to approach different sections of the MCAT, especially when it comes to CARS. He talks you through the passage, and teaches you proper test-taking strategies.”

“I have enjoyed working with Theo thus far, namely his positive attitude and patience have been extremely helpful throughout this process. Aside from the tremendous knowledge base he possesses and the demonstrated significant experience with the exam, I think his application of different strategies to the MCAT to help form a personalized approach is also his strength. Lastly, Theo’s willingness to engage with individuals both as students and as people, and to offer his guidance and services BEYOND a typical tutoring session is commendable and appreciated.

Chandler

“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. Theo’s understanding of the MCAT is unparalleled. Ultimately, he helped me reach a 100th percentile score. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for help studying in any subject, especially for the MCAT.”

“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 concepts but it wasn’t until Theo explained them to me that I felt confident. He’s a wizard at breaking complex material into understandable pieces. 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. “

“Theo is a great MCAT tutor who is amazing to work with. His knowledge of content, as well as test-taking strategies, can blow big MCAT prep companies out of the water! I’m just getting started with him and in a couple sessions Theo has increased my CARS score 6 points already!

Jeffrey

“Theo helped me so much! Theo gave me really simple and useful tips for CARS that boosted my score significantly after meeting with him just 2 times. He now helps me with personalized feedback when we go through drills. Theo walks you through ways to really dissect each of the questions and all the answer choices and what each of them represents. He will really teach you how to think like the MCAT writers think. The best part about it is that he doesn’t just help you while he is meeting with you but give you tools to improve your performance on your own.”

Jeff

“Theo was an awesome tutor. It helps that he’s a super nice and cool guy, but he definitely knows his stuff. Theo helped me with certain strategies to dissect questions that I couldn’t have thought of on my own. He’s approachable, understanding, and highly flexible to your needs, especially now with Covid-19 going on he has been very helpful with rescheduling tests. Just an all-around good person and a good tutor. I do not have any critiques. Everything was fantastic for me. It’s about enjoying the process and Theo made it easier during an already stressful time with studying for the MCAT.”

Marvin

“Theo is the best tutor I have ever had and I’m really happy that I chose him. From the first day, Theo worked with me to form a personalized study plan and told me exactly what and how much to study. As an English-as-a-second-language student, Theo helped me a lot with CARS section strategies and how to approach passages and questions. In my case, it was helpful to have the best tutor ever for the MCAT. Theo is very knowledgeable and really friendly. He is compassionate and knows what students need to be successful. It’s easy to talk to him, he has a lot of endurance when I don’t understand something and he explains complex concepts to me in an easy way.”

“Theo was excellent as a tutor and was very encouraging and inspiring with his help. Theo provides his unique novel strategies that are tried and tested, and they led to a 5+ increase in my overall MCAT score for my retake! He is very patient when going through problems and gives a very interesting perspective across all sections. I myself struggled initially with timing on certain sections such as C/P and B/B, but he helped me gain confidence throughout our sessions together. I would highly recommend him to anyone that needs MCAT help!”

Elizabeth

“Tutoring with Theo is by far the best decision I have made for my MCAT prep. Theo provides succinct and effective test-taking strategies that are crucial to success on this exam; he was also incredibly helpful in structuring my schedule so that I could be effective and efficient with my time. I have seen vast improvements in my MCAT scores since I started working with Theo. As an MCAT retaker, I was nervous that my score wouldn’t improve. But after working with Theo my MCAT retake score improved 13 points! I strongly believe that applying the strategies he has taught me has made all the difference and given me confidence in my ability to succeed on the MCAT. Without hesitation, I strongly recommend Theo to anyone looking for a great MCAT tutor!”

Frannie

“Theo is a phenomenal tutor. I came to him wanting help making a study plan and some strategies on the different sections, and he helped me with all of that and more. He is definitely an expert on the MCAT— even when I came to him with the hardest questions on practice tests he would be able to talk me through how to figure them out, even if he had never seen them before. He also was extremely helpful in coming up with strategies on how I can get those questions right the next time by whittling down what seems like a complicated problem into its manageable components. While working with him, my score improved PAST MY GOAL SCORE up to the 100th percentile and I owe that to him and his help. I would recommend Theo to anybody.”

“Theo was very helpful in my process of retaking the MCAT. I had studied 9 months before I took it the first time and figured that I would do well. After being disappointed in my scores I was unsure of what to do. I found MCAT self prep online and considered getting a tutor. I’m glad I found Theo. He was always in a great mood, never made me feel dumb for not understanding a concept, and always instilled confidence in me. I only had three weeks to prepare for a retake and with Theo’s help I improved by 5 points!!! Theo was especially helpful in the CARS section. I had done pretty well on practice tests, but with his advice my CARS score really improved.

Andy

“After going through a Kaplan course, I was a bit skeptical on how much I could learn from a tutor. I was pleasantly blown away by how much I learned from Theo after only only a few short tutoring sessions. He taught me ways to approach questions I had never even considered and my scores improved because of this, especially in the B/B and CARS sections. As an individual Theo is always timely and a very positive person. He never rushed me to finish a question faster than I would like and always thoroughly explained how to break questions apart I had trouble with. I don’t necessarily think you need a tutor to get a great score, but if you do get one I would highly recommend Theo as he will be worth every penny. Thanks Theo!”

Sam

“Theo is a literal life saver! I decided to study for the MCAT on my own and I would be a wreck without Theo’s help. Every time I have needed him, he has been willing and able to help. Tutors can be incredibly expensive and I was scared that I would be paying a lot for low yield return, but Theo has made all of our sessions effective, uplifting, and catered to my needs. As far as material goes, Theo knows it inside and out. Any question I have had has been answered quickly and effectively with pneumonics and examples. Incredible. From setting up a plan I can actually have confidence in… to showing me the study strategies that can maximize my personal time… to teaching me the key test-taking techniques to keep me progressing, I am more than grateful to Theo.”

David

“Theo has a gift for stripping things down to the core and making questions and paragraphs super simple. The techniques Theo uses to analyze material is something that anyone can use no matter how intelligent you think you are, and best of all, they don’t take very long to learn. Theo is an amazing tutor and genuinely cares about how I do. He always asks me things about my life and also about my MCAT application to know how else he can help me. I’ve loved working with Theo and recommend him for anyone looking for a tutor.”

Shawn

“Theo helped me refine my strategies (in C/P, CARS, and B/B) and, most importantly, my mindset in tackling my practice exams. Through actively using these tools over many practice exams, I felt at peace and prepared when taking my real MCAT. Above all, Theo did not look at me as less than when I struggled. Most importantly, Theo is one of the only tutors who can equally balance and address both your content deficits AND your test-taking performance hindrances – crucial to succeeding on this exam.”

Emily

“Working with Theo to study for my MCAT exam has been such a wonderful experience. He is a tutor who truly shows you and explains how to approach the passage, how to dissect it to understand it better and understand what the questions are asking. This is something a lot of tutors DO NOT do.
Often times I take so long reading the passages or choosing an answer, but he has always been so understanding and patient with me. I have never felt like he was judging me for not knowing an answer or concept, which I really appreciated. One of Theo’s best attributes is his selfless personality. He has always been willing to help and answer all of my questions regarding the MCAT, application, and personal statement. He is genuinely just trying to give back to the pre-med community rather than take your money. Often times when I am studying, I lose my motivation and think more pessimistically about my progress than I would like, however meeting with Theo regularly has given me the motivation to push harder and stay positive. He has changed my entire perspective of the exam from something that seemed so daunting to something I can overcome and succeed in.

He would answer any questions I had no matter how long and tedious they were, and reassured me when I started spiraling into a negative headspace. I remember taking FL-2 and scoring a 123 in the CARS section after hours and hours of prep. Theo refused to let me fall into a negative loop and encouraged me to see where I went wrong and how to avoid the same mistakes I made on that section. I am ecstatic to say that my CARS score jumped 6 points to a 129 on FL-4 and I made a 129 on my actual MCAT. To whoever is reading this, please do not give up on yourself and your abilities. When I felt like I wasn’t capable, Theo always encouraged me and made me feel like I was making progress. Honestly a huge part about studying efficiently is your mindset and thinking positively, and he helped me cultivate that! I highly recommend him, he’s an easy person to talk and will provide you with the resources and support you need.”

Theo goes above and beyond what you expect from an ordinary tutor. He is always well prepared and he adapts his teaching style into how I can learn the best.

“Theo really tries to understand your thought process when you’re going through practice questions. That way, he can either guide you in the right direction or give you nuanced suggestions if your thought process is correct when answering a question. He has scored well on the MCAT, so Theo not only knows what it takes to succeed on the MCAT, but he really understands the psychology of the AAMC’s logic and guides us to master the test in the way that Theo did.

“Theo is really personal and easy to connect with. He does a great job at evaluating where you’re at and recognizing what steps you need to take to improve. Always felt like I could ask him about anything I needed help with, whether that was MCAT or med school related. Super grateful I had his help!”

“It was a pleasure to have Theo guide me through the MCAT process. Everybody is different and Theo understands this, therefore he is able to work closely with you and individualize a plan that fits your unique needs. Additionally, he helped me get organized and stay consistent all throughout the process as well. Theo is extremely reliable and I never felt alone through the process. I cannot thank him and recommend him enough!”

“Right off the bat, Theo produced a detailed and manageable study plan for me. This helped ease and organize the intimidating workload required for the MCAT. He was also wonderfully accommodating of my work schedule and is incredibly accessible via multiple platforms of communication with a satisfactory turn around time.

I also benefited from Theo’s analytical and tactical approach to addressing the diversity and density of the MCAT. Theo broke every question down to distinguishable question formats based on section and provided tested methods of analyzing not only the passages but the questions themselves via word webs for biology/biochem, umbrella analysis for CARS, etc. I haven’t had a single negative experience with Theo and would recommend him to absolutely anybody.”

“Theo is an amazing tutor without a doubt, and his experience really shines through when he worked with me on the CARS session. As a nontrad student with English as my second language, I knew needed help on CARS. We were able to develop a study plan with achievable progression and a CARS strategy that’s simple and most importantly makes sense to me. We’d try to get to the underlying causes of my mistakes (e.g. timing, reasoning, second guessing etc.) and build a personally tailored strategy upon. With meticulous approach in the end, I was able to improve and build my confidence in CARS in a consistent way. Because of tutoring with Theo, I achieved a score that I NEVER THOUGHT POSSIBLE: I got a 524 on the MCAT (100th percentile)!

Jake

“Throughout the MCAT process, I was constantly looking for the one secret that would allow me to achieve the high score I desired. The problem for me was that so many websites, blogs, companies, etc. seemed to all claim they had the MCAT secret that works universally. While these were all helpful, I couldn’t find anything to help me move passed the road-blocks I was personally encountering. Theo helped me develop MCAT strategies that specifically fit my needs, ultimately allowing me to achieve a 100th percentile score!! Moreover, he got on my level when it came to helping me progress, helping me move forward at my own pace and patching my weak areas along the way. I would highly recommend Theo as an MCAT tutor to anyone struggling to meet their MCAT goals or simply want a respectable score.”

“Theo is an amazing tutor! I had lost hope in improving my CARS score, especially after taking the MCAT already. But after one or two sessions, Theo was able to help me change my mindset with CARS, which helped me improve my speed, precision, and score. He also gave great advice on crafting a realistic and effective MCAT schedule for my retake. He is very empathetic, understanding, and caring, so I felt comfortable reaching out to him and asking him questions, even outside of our sessions. He knows the ins and outs of the MCAT and medical school process and is an overall awesome guy, so I’m glad that I chose him as my tutor!”

“Theo helped me through the difficult process of retaking the MCAT when I was struggling with many other personal issues at the time. Not only did he take extra time with me to change my study plan to my needs, he helped me learn how the AAMC tests. Before I was extremely frustrated by CARS logic, but now it makes sense to me. This made test day feel much easier for me and helped me improve my CARS score by 7 points!”

He has helped me build confidence in my test-taking ability and has become not only a tutor but a friend in the process. Theo particularly excels at noticing patterns in the MCAT test and does a great, clear job at explaining them. Theo is patient and understanding when he teaches, and teaches differently for each individual he is working with. He is all about finding what works for us, because he realizes that studying and learning is an individual process and we all have our strengths and weaknesses. Overall Theo has been an awesome tutor.”

“What more can I say about Theo. The man is a unicorn. I say that because he is one of a kind. I had researched plenty of prep companies and other ways to prepare for the MCAT. Luckily, I heard from a friend about Theo. His ability to help me understand the logic of the AAMC was imperative for my success. He made me feel like the MCAT was beatable and made me confident in my own abilities. Many of my friends have used prep companies and spent thousands and have felt unsatisfied with their preparation. I have never once regretted using Theo and in fact I would recommend that anyone and everyone use him for MCAT and application prep.”

Can a tutor help me with my study plan?

Our Elite Tutors' primary focus is on helping you know what and how to study in order to achieve MCAT success. They understand that having an effective study plan is the number one determining factor regarding whether you will reach your goal MCAT score. For this reason, they will focus on helping you develop and follow a customized study plan unique to your needs. They all scored in the 97th+ percentile using the MCAT Self Prep Program, so they know what it takes to achieve MCAT success.

Will Elite Tutoring help me during my final month of MCAT studying?

Yes! The final month of studying is actually the best time to take advantage of Elite Tutoring. You will be doing many full-length practice exams during your final month, and your Elite Tutor can review the toughest passages and questions with you. Study Plan Advising is also extremely helpful as you try to decide what and how to study during the final month. Students find that working with someone who has already conquered the exam to be very reassuring during the most stressful period of studying.

I need help with the CARS section. Can an Elite Tutor help me with that?

Yes! Our Elite Tutors are trained to help you with every section of the MCAT.

How do I start meeting with a tutor?

To start meeting with your tutor, simply add Elite Tutoring to your cart, and complete the checkout process. Afterwards, you will receive an immediate confirmation email with detailed instructions for getting started.

After that, you can schedule a your first at your convenience so that you can discuss your study plan with one of our Elite Tutors in a one-on-one setting.

How often will I meet with a tutor? How does scheduling a session work?

The great thing about our program is that it offers you the flexibility to study at your own pace and on your own schedule. You do not need to meet with your tutor at the same time every week for a set number of weeks. You are able to choose any available tutoring slot from your tutor's calendar, whether that slot is two months from now or two days from now. You choose the time that works for you! Students love having this flexibility.

Is there any way to meet in person with my tutor?

All of our tutoring sessions are conducted online, and our students find this to be just as effective, if not more effective, than meeting in person. Students really enjoy the fact that they can visit with their tutor without having to ever leave their apartment!

Can I defer my payment or pay in increments over time?

Yes! Simply select affirm pay over time at checkout to customize your payment plan with affirm. In some cases, affirm can decline users from using their pay-over-time service. If this happens, you can shoot me a message, and we'll get you set up with a personalized monthly payment plan that will suit your financial needs. If you have questions or need to make changes to your affirm payment plan, you can contact affirm here. For non-affirm, custom payment plans, contact us.

Can I schedule sessions before my payment plan is paid off?

Yes! You can begin scheduling tutoring sessions right away after signing up. But keep in mind that we will suspend your account and postpone all remaining tutoring sessions if your recurring payment fails at any time. If you have questions or need to make changes to your affirm payment plan, you can contact affirm here. For non-affirm, custom payment plans, contact us.

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.
