More About Timothy

Hey! Most people call me Tim, I'm a rising M2 at UConn's medical school, and I’m looking forward to helping you overcome your MCAT and application challenges. I joined MCAT Self Prep as a student, then as a writer, editor, and finally as a tutor in 2017. Since then, I have spent hundreds of hours tutoring students and helping them target their specific weaknesses.

Although MCAT Self Prep tutors can teach any aspect of the MCAT, I take pride in helping students improve their passage reading skills, including CARS. I have always prioritized comprehension strategies and having a simple, consistent reading approach, and I’ve shared that approach on our old Live Science Strategy Sessions and in tutoring sessions. Read my testimonials to see some of the great results from this!

Preparing strong weekly study plans is also a major priority with students I work with. It can be hard to know what resources to use, what to focus on, and how to balance your time and avoid burnout. As new challenges come up, we can adjust your study plan to keep you on track and meet your goals.

The other aspect of my work with MCAT Self Prep is as editor of our practice questions and Quizlet sets. I have written or edited all of our 5,000+ questions. If you have submitted feedback on them, you have already heard from me! And if you ever wanted to ask about these practice questions in a session, I am more than able to help.

Outside of medical school and MCAT work, I do my best to stay fit and stay in touch with friends. Despite my busy schedule, I've maintained a consistent gym routine and started running long-distance this winter (still disappointed my first half-marathon was postponed). On top of this, I organize at least two calls with friends a week, where we'll play Jackbox games, cards, or any other social distancing-friendly games online. I highly recommend building time to exercise and socialize into your MCAT journeys, since these will only help you in the long run and can prevent burnout!

I can’t wait to be your friend and mentor as you prepare for the MCAT. Whether you have issues approaching passages, applying content knowledge, or even with timing, I can give you my strategies to solve MCAT problems quickly, efficiently, and most importantly, consistently.

If you are interested in working with me, simply scroll down and sign up for the tutoring package of your choice. Or, if you have some questions before signing up, feel free to reach out for a free 10-minute phone consultation using the form at the very bottom of the page!

I'm looking forward to talking with you soon!

Warm regards,

Timothy Nolan

Hear What Timothy's Students are Saying About Him

  • "Tim was an exceptional tutor through helping me prepare for the MCAT! He helped me understand several chemistry and biochemistry concepts by explaining to me in detail why I missed certain questions, and pasted helpful charts into my tutor portal to help me grasp the concepts even more. He always had my questions answered in the portal before the tutoring session began and was very flexible with his appointment times. He has a great personality and is very easy to get along with! Tim helped me increase my score by 16 points since my previous attempt at the MCAT last year. He also tremendously helped me with my personal statement and other essays for my medical school applications. He gave me helpful advice of how to rearrange my personal statement and fixed several minor mistakes in each of my essays. Thank you, Tim!!"

  • Hear how Andrew improved 20 points over 3 months!"I am so thankful I started working with Tim. His experience and support as an adviser have helped me tremendously. He understands the challenges we face when preparing for the MCAT and creates solutions to address your specific needs. The hardest part of my preparation is delegating my study time appropriately between different resources. Tim has given me extremely useful feedback so I can prioritize my time and energy and make meaningful improvements. I highly recommend working with him on a regular basis leading up to your test so you achieve a great score that reflects your time and effort. Thank you, Tim!"

  • "After taking my MCAT in June I was feeling defeated and knew I had done horrible on the exam. I didn’t want to wait another cycle to apply, so I decided to retake the test but this time it would be different because I had a personal tutor who would guide me along the way. Tim was the missing piece to the puzzle. Throughout our lessons he showed me that I was capable. He taught me how to reason about the passages and not get lost in all the unnecessary details. He was professional yet personable and he pushed me to reach my highest potential. When I had a death in my family and accidentally missed our meeting, Tim was understanding and rescheduled our session. Overall I want to thank Tim because he believed in me. He was patient with me and helped me tackle the weak areas I had in all sections of the MCAT. I don’t regret picking Tim as my tutor and I can assure you that you won’t either. The MCAT process is daunting but I was blessed to have a tutor like Tim who encouraged and motivated me throughout the way. He’s the best tutor I’ve ever had. I went from a 496 to a 506! All I can say is Tim is the real deal!!"

  • "Before my MCAT prep and after taking my first diagnostic exam, I knew I had to work on my CARS score as it was very low. For me, CARS was an iffy section because I didn't know what I was struggling with since it would greatly vary over time. Luckily, Andrew had just launched his 10 CARS Strategy modules, which was incredibly helpful. I came in with the mindset of taking the MCAT once, so I knew to invest a lot of time and energy into CARS. Looking for a tutor that other students have used for CARS, I came across Timothy. Most of his reviews lauded his ability to help students improve CARS by several points, which is what I needed since I wanted a more focused, tailored plan to conquer CARS. I worked with Timothy for five sessions and they were incredibly useful. The first few tutoring sessions involved going over specific question types I had hard time answering, to which Timothy provided the best feedback and game plan to approaching such question. Towards the end, despite all the valuable intake, my score was not budging (only 1-2 points below my score goal). I poured my stress about CARS to Timothy and he came straight to the rescue to develop a last-minute, high yield approach to securing those points. What made Timothy stand out was that he is incredibly responsive, goes out of his way to create a solid plan to go over CARS mistakes, and accurately analyzes your weaknesses in CARS, helping to tweak your approach to perfection. Because of Timothy, I was able to improve my CARS score by ~5 points before Test Day!"

  • "Tim was a huge help for my MCAT journey! I started off like most students do when prepping for the MCAT. I had no idea where to start. Tim along with MCAT Self Prep got me started on a study schedule that was tailored to me. Tim was quick to respond to any questions I had and gave great tips about the test! Over my three-month period of studying I was able to raise my MCAT score by 13 points. I attribute my success to MCAT Self Prep and especially the guidance Tim was able to give me! I would absolutely recommend Tim as a tutor since he did such an outstanding job with helping me prep for the MCAT!"

  • "Before my first session with Tim, I lacked confidence in my knowledge of the material for the MCAT and ability to break down science and CARS passages in an efficient manner. He gave me tips and tricks to work through passages, and provided easy-to-understand explanations for the questions I struggled with. He is exceptionally knowledgeable about all aspects of the MCAT and wants nothing more than to see you succeed. He goes the extra mile to ensure your understanding, no matter how long it takes. Within a few weeks I felt more confident and was able to increase my score on my practice exam by 9 points. I would, without a doubt, recommend Tim to anyone that needs help on any aspect of their MCAT preparation."

  • ""I reached out to Timothy when I hit a plateau on my full lengths. I needed help to raise my scores and he gave me strategies that enabled me to reach my goal. Timothy was so encouraging throughout the whole process which boosted my confidence. Thanks to his help, I was able to increase my mark by 12 points and obtain a competitive MCAT score. Timothy made a very challenging process much more manageable and I can't thank him enough."

    Jessica

    Jessica

  • "One of the biggest challenges I faced was not knowing how to review endless amounts of material and strategy on practice exams. On mini exams and full lengths, I was struggling with timing and breaking the 500 barrier consistently. I met with Timothy a couple months before my test date and he helped resolve these shortcomings. Timothy laid out a perfect weekly study plan and realistic goals to complete each week. I felt encouraged by his enthusiasm and desire to see me succeed and conquer the MCAT. Timothy knows how to teach to your understanding and is always willing to go above and beyond to make sure you understand concepts. I was so impressed by the amount of preparation he put in our tutoring appointments even before the tutoring appointment started. One topic we focused on a lot was specific strategies for tackling problems on practice tests. After applying and practicing the strategies, I got 10 points higher on the next practice exam I took the following week. Working with Timothy has been a great blessing, and you will find that your goals are very achievable with his help."

  • "I had been studying for the MCAT for around 6 months when I decided to enlist help from a tutor. After completing Kaplan and TPR, my scores weren't showing the level of improvement that I wanted, plateauing at about 502, so I decided to try something new and get a tutor. Working with Tim has been honestly life-changing and brought a new perspective on how to interpret data and analyze passages. Seriously I don't ever think there was an instance where I brought up a question he did not know- he knows everything!!! He made everything so easy to understand, using simple props around his desk and drawing pictures to eliminate all the confusing details on pictures you find online. I would recommend him to anyone looking to deepen your understanding on material. He knows the MCAT backwards and forwards and helped me focus on high--yield material while showing me the best way to approach questions and passages. His schedule was so accommodating and he always made time to meet me at my convenience. Meeting online was so convenient- I got all the information I needed through screen sharing and his simple explanations, without wasting any travel time."

  • "Tim was a phenomenal tutor and truly integral to my experience studying for the MCAT! Not only was Tim able to provide detailed explanations for my MANY questions, but he also gave frequent encouragement that helped tremendously with my attitude and confidence surrounding the MCAT. In particular, Tim was very patient during sessions, catered to my specific concerns, and provided thorough responses that went above and beyond the answers I expected. I also had quite a bit of questions related to scheduling my MCAT prep and Tim was able to pinpoint exactly which dates I should complete certain sections and how long I should be spending on different courses. This kind of specific advice was extremely helpful for someone who always likes having a gauge to ensure they're on the right track. Even when my studying didn't directly follow the schedule, having Tim to monitor my progress throughout provided a great sense of relief. Tim was always positive and optimistic about setting goals while also being realistic. All in all, with Tim's support, I was able to increase my score by ten points during my studying and gain more confidence in my test-taking abilities along the way!"

  • "I definitely recommend Tim as a tutor! He not only simplifies concepts but he makes sure you understand the material thoroughly. He also helped me to be more confident in my test taking skills. He takes the time to create an individualized study plan and makes studying more fun. It was one month until my MCAT but with Tim’s help, I was able to increase my score by 8 points! If you want an MCAT studying experience that is more fun and personalized, Timothy can help you reach your exam goals! "

    Anne

    Anne

  • "I started tutoring with Timothy after attempting the MCAT once. On my first attempt, I really struggled with CARS and this was reflected in my score on that section. Working with Timothy helped me immensely to improve my reading and comprehension skills and gain a better understanding of how to better prepare myself for the CARS section. Before I started tutoring with Timothy, I would sometimes encounter passages where I would get nearly every associated question wrong because I really struggled with both digesting the passage and eliminating incorrect answer choices. After just a few weeks of working with him, I saw a dramatic improvement in both my confidence when I would encounter these types of passages and my ability to find the correct answer. This improvement really continued up until my second test date and I left the exam room feeling much better than I did the first time around! Overall, Timothy was extremely professional as a tutor but also consistently made me feel like there was someone in my corner rooting for me. "

  • "I started working with Tim 2 months before my test date. Prior to working with him, my studying was unstructured and I felt offtrack. Tim helped give my studying structure and was helpful planning my study schedule. My CARS score improved by 4 points and I scored a 511 overall after 5 sessions of working together. I've used Kaplan books in the past, but his teaching style is very personal and is sure to improve your CARS score. Also he is a great aid in strategy for the MCAT. He helped highlight selections and improved the way I approach questions. He also helped me with Physics and enzyme kinetics. Overall I am very satisfied!"

  • "I got really lucky with having Tim as my tutor! He is a great tutor in all four sections of the MCAT and really helped improve my science sections tremendously. My science sections were at a 124 and they improved to 128 on test day. Tim was also amazing at helping me make a study schedule that was do-able. He was also a major source of encouragement during my MCAT journey. Thanks Tim for everything! "

    Claire

  • "I highly recommend Timothy Nolan as a MCAT tutor if you are looking to make real gains in your MCAT score. Timothy was always exceptionally well prepared for our sessions, and I never doubted that he was giving me accurate and valuable information and advice that would improve my score. I had both in-person and online sessions with Timothy and was very pleasantly surprised with the online experience. Timothy always made sure I truly understood what he was explaining before moving on, but he also kept our sessions moving at a good pace so that we could cover everything. Tutoring with him was invaluable to my studying, to be able to review content and questions I struggled with one-on-one with someone who has an unparalleled understanding of MCAT content. Over three months of working with him, I saw my score increase from a 509 to a 515 on test day!"

    Chloe

    Chloe

  • "Timothy is an amazing tutor, mostly due to his ability to simplify complicated concepts so that they can be understood by essentially anyone willing to learn. General chemistry seemed daunting to me, and I was struggling until I was paired up with Tim. He is very patient and genuinely wanted to see me succeed in a subject area that wasn’t first nature to me. Instead of just giving answers, he took the time to walk through problems step-by-step and explain why the answers made sense rather than just showing how to get them. By putting meaning behind the work we were doing, I feel as though he significantly improved my problem-solving skills, and I found myself able to systematically work through types of problems that I had never even seen before. Timothy is very fun to work with, and his belief in my abilities absolutely contributed to my success. I cannot recommend him more highly for anyone looking for the confidence and knowledge base to improve their MCAT score!"

    Jenna

  • "I have truly enjoyed working with Timothy over the last two months. Our primary focus together has been on my CARS strategy, skills, and approach. I have seen nearly one-third of the number of questions I missed in CARS originally reduced in two months. The biggest thing that has made a difference is the strategies that Timothy guides me in, which are specifically tailored to my skillset. He always stops me in my mistakes, and I deeply appreciate that because I want a tutor that corrects me when I am going off track. Whether it be for CARS, science passages, or scheduling-planning, Timothy always has a methodical approach, and I am forever thankful for his guidance."

    Akshar

  • "Timothy is a personable, encouraging and enjoyable person to work with. I came to Tim after months of studying frustration, and he was able to single-handedly ease my worries with a solid study plan and belt of study techniques. I was especially satisfied by how he tailored tips and techniques to my specific situation throughout the course of my studying. Albeit busy with his own studies, Tim made sure to put in the time and effort to ensure I had all my questions answered. Particularly during the uncertain circumstances of COVID-19, Tim was a supportive and steady anchor to have. Understanding, adaptable, and respectful, Timothy was an absolute pleasure to work with!"

    Elaine

    Elaine

  • After having taken five years off after undergrad, I embarked on the self-study journey of preparing for the MCAT. I did not find MCAT self-prep until the last phase of my studying, nevertheless working with Tim the month before my test proved to be invaluable. Tim is an incredibly encouraging tutor, and even though I did not feel prepared, his positivity and faith in me kept me going. Given our short span of timing working together, Tim provided test taking tips, study tips and helped clarify concepts with external links and thorough written explanations. He is down to earth, relatable and made the process of MCAT studying actually enjoyable. My only wish is that I had found MCAT self-prep and Tim’s tutoring services sooner. He is honestly the best!

  • "After taking the MCAT once and struggling with the Chem/Physics section, I decided to use MCAT Self Prep and their tutor Tim for my retake. With Tim's help, my Chem/Physics score increased by 4 points before test day. Tim is extremely knowledgeable and is able to provide clear explanations for difficult concepts. If I wasn't grasping a concept, he would present it in multiple different ways until I had a solid understanding. He is also great at helping you break down tricky passages from all sections. Tim was essential in helping me plan my study schedule - especially a month out from my MCAT, where he helped me pinpoint what resources I should use and how to best spend my time to ensure I was prepared on test day. Tim is very personable and makes each session enjoyable and fun, he was invaluable to my MCAT study journey and I would HIGHLY recommend him as a tutor! "

    Alex

  • "Tim was an exceptional tutor and the best I've had up to this point. He goes above and beyond to make sure he is available around my hectic schedule and he was always prepared. He explained concepts in multiple different ways to solidify understanding and account for the different learning styles of various students. He isn't afraid to admit when he is unsure about something and will even follow up with an answer after researching it. Tim is both funny and personable, yet very knowledgeable and patient, which makes him a great tutor for anyone who has the privilege of working with him."

    Ericka

    Ericka

  • "Tim is a great tutor! He always comes prepared, on-time, and ready to go for every session. He was a huge help in answering questions that I would have otherwise just skipped. And he worked with my schedule to make sure we could fit in every session before my test date. I would highly recommend Tim as a tutor because on top of his extensive MCAT knowledge, he is patient and easy-going and overall enjoyable to work with."

    Niki

    Niki

  • "Timothy is a great tutor and I would most definitely recommend him for his ability to teach concepts. I was struggling with some of the anatomy-based concepts (kidneys especially) and he was able to break down passages and problems for me and taught me how to do the same. His methods really helped me gain a better understanding of the subject. He does not just tell you the answers or ask leading questions like some tutors do, but he takes his time and explains things slowly to make sure I totally grasped the material behind the questions. He has a pleasant personality and is fun to work with, and I would highly recommend him if you're looking to boost your MCAT scores!"

    Amanda

    Amanda

  • "I've really enjoyed working with Timothy. He always came well prepared to our sessions so that they were as efficient as possible-- seriously, we never wasted a minute. He is also super flexible with his scheduling times and he even agreed to meet urgently one night when none of the scheduled appointments worked with my schedule! I think you would benefit from his hands-on teaching approach where he talks out the problem with you in order to help you see exactly where you went wrong. "

    Christine

    Christine

  • "Timothy did a great job honing in on the gaps in my knowledge and making sure I felt confident in my understanding. He is enthusiastic about subject materials and finds interesting comparisons and examples, so his explanations leave a lasting impression. I highly recommend Tim if you are looking to improve your confidence and knowledge base by test day!"

    Maria

    Maria

  • "It goes without saying, that’s Tim role in my MCAT career went beyond that of a tutor. He was my MCAT ROCK! From our first phone consultation to out last session, Tim has encouraged me to not only reach for new heights, but also acknowledge all my achievements, big and small. I have ADHD and needed a tutor who could empathize with my rather unique MCAT challenges, testing accommodations, and test prep needs. One such challenge was scheduling. Tim took the time outside of our planned sessions to review the schedules I had crafted, addressing every module and mastery course I had planned out. I am still waiting on my score, but I know that because of Tim’s diligent work and infectious enthusiasm I am a better MCAT-prep student, test-taker, and aspiring physician."

    Maddie

    Maddie

  • "Although I was not understanding concepts at first exposure, Timothy was so patient with me and I can't thank him enough for that. My score improved significantly after working with Timothy. What made the most difference was Tim being honest with me in what I had to focus on first and be able to plan ahead with my grad school schedule. Tim is personable and uses easily understood analogies to explain concepts. It was generally easy to schedule appointments with Tim, and most importantly, Tim was always prepared to start each tutoring session. During these many months of studying, I made the choice to continue with my other commitments of research, tutoring, weekly volunteering, and speaking at conferences while I was studying for the MCAT. Although this may have been detrimental to my study schedule, I always had amazing guidance with Tim. Tim was definitely able to accommodate his teaching style to my learning style and pace of learning so that made a huge difference for me."

    Kevin

    Kevin

  • "Timothy has been great because he is always prepared and has learned how to best explain things to me. After a few times working together, Tim and I had a good system where I could tell him what I need to focus on ahead of time, and he would come ready with explanations that went deep at the root of my issues. He gave great examples that made the tougher parts of physics and psychology make intuitive sense to me, instead of just answering one question and moving on. He would even encourage me to explain sticking points back him to make sure I really, really understood one concept before we moved on. Tim is so accessible and fun to work with!!"

    Melinda

    Melinda

  • "Timothy was an excellent tutor, he provided flexible hours for tutoring sessions. I work a full time job so it was great that he offered evening hours on both week days and weekends. Timothy's strong suit was not only knowing how to explain complex problems in multiple ways to help me understand them, but also looking at how I was doing on my practice tests and understand a root problem and helping me address the issue. This came in handy when I was consistently doing poorly on my chem/phys section despite continuous studying, Timothy took one look at my exam and found the overarching problem, he saved me hours of useless directionless studying and was able to help me direct my studying toward more useful information. He also helped explain concepts that had previously been extremely difficult to me, I went from getting almost all my physics questions incorrect to getting 70% correct on my AAMC practice questions. He also thoroughly prepared for each tutoring session, to the point that I now have a wonderful study guide from his notes. Timothy has the perfect personality for a tutor, he is the correct amount of honest and optimistic, which is a wonderful combination when studying for the MCAT. Timothy's expertise was invaluable for my studying. "

    Jackie

  • "When I started tutoring, I learned different techniques on how to improve my CARS score. CARS is a section I constantly struggle with on the MCAT and the CARS strategy course paired with tutoring helped me to improve my CARS score. While doing the CARS passages, Tim really helped me walk through the passage to understand it better and explain why the correct answer choice was correct and how to best apply those techniques I read about."

    Areebah

  • "Tim was consistently encouraging and motivating, which really helped me through the ups and downs of studying for the MCAT. The techniques and advice he gave were invaluable, and he was quickly able to identify what I was doing wrong and how to improve. And, after after a few sessions, I started to see the results in my score! I couldn't have done this without his help!!"

    Niv

  • "Tim is an absolute STUD. All you need to know is that this guy is a legend when it comes to MCAT tutoring. I studied a couple of months on my own just reading through books and doing practice questions. After I could not break through my plateau I started tutoring with Tim and he designed the best study plan I could ask for. Everything was neat, important, and seemed like the recipe for success. Within two weeks I gained back all of my lost confidence and saw a solid 4 point increase in Chem/Phys. My goal is to stick with Tim and listen to his plan for the remainder of my studies in order to achieve my goal score. Aside from tutoring Tim connects with you personally and relates with you because he was once in your shoes too. I honestly do not know where I would be or could even imagine what my score would look like if I didn’t meet this GOAT!"

    Joseph

    Joseph

  • "Working with Tim has helped me better understand how to properly direct my attention to the concepts that I have difficulty with while being able to adjust learning content to the way that is most efficient. Regularly meeting with Tim has overall taken away most of the stress I have had with this exam by providing me with advice about resources that can actually help, making sure I stick to my timeline and even making sure that I completely understand a module before moving on to the next one which I hope to continue."

    Arya

    Arya

  • "I was not making any progress in my scores after two months of working with another tutor from a well known MCAT prep program. As a non-traditional applicant, I was frustrated with how that program was set up. I knew I needed a different approach and was fortunate to be introduced to Timothy. He quickly was able to set up a study plan to focus on my weaknesses. As a tutor, he is able to present a topic in several different ways so I can truly understand a concept. Since working with him my practice exam scores have increased drastically. I would recommend Timothy to any student who is struggling with studying for this exam. "

    Jillian

  • "Tim has been helping me since last year, and he provided wonderful advice for the CARS section! I am looking forward to continuing to implement many test-taking strategies as Tim works with me to finalize my last few issues before the MCAT. He was available to help me in the evening times after I finished my job for the day, and I am very grateful. Thank you Tim for everything! "

    Anna

  • "Prior to meeting with Tim, I really lacked self confidence and doubted my ability to get through challenging passages in both CARS and the sciences. In just our first meeting, he was able to identify some of my shortcomings and demonstrate more efficient techniques for attacking CARS. I really liked how he asked me to read the passage aloud to better understand where I was losing the main point, I felt this helped me tremendously on test day. After applying his methods, I was able to increase my practice test scores by 11 points AND feel much more relaxed. Additionally, Tim helped me create an effective study plan to not get burned out in the final stretch, I went into the test feeling rested and prepared! Tim was a huge help in my anticipated success, I highly recommend him to anyone needing personalized help."

    Jordan

    Jordan

  • "When I first took the MCAT in 2019 I didn’t know where to start with preparation. The amount of information required to know and different strategies for the test was overwhelming. This disorganization of preparation led to a score I was not happy with and knew I would need to retake the MCAT. In 2020 I found MCAT Self Prep and immediately found the course to be easy to follow and full of the necessary information. I began working with Tim to create a study plan and I would not have been able to improve my score without his help. He constantly worked with me to edit my study plan to stick with strategies that worked for me and improve others that didn’t. His ability to breakdown a difficult science passage was crucial in helping me to improve my reading skills. Tim made difficult concepts seem manageable. Most importantly, I knew he truly cared about my success and that I was able to make key improvements. I highly recommend Tim to anyone that is struggling with any aspect of the MCAT, and to those looking to take their score to the next level."

Meticulous Preparation. Before the session even starts, your tutor will look through your Study Portal as they prepare an individualized lesson plan.

Pivotal Adjustments. At the beginning of each hourlong session, your Premium Elite Tutor will examine your progress and help you adjust your study plan using the Study Plan Spreadsheet.

Individualized Training. Your Premium Elite Tutor will spend the bulk of the session focused on teaching you the strategies and content that address your exact needs.

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?

Students find that working with someone who has already conquered the exam to be very reassuring during the most stressful period of studying.
