More About Zachary

Hi! My name is Zachary Reinstein, and I am very excited to start working with you toward a top MCAT score. I love biology, I love research, and I love medicine. My hope is that as you study for the MCAT with me, not only will you get an amazing score, but you will develop a greater love and understanding for the human body.

Because of my varied interests, I currently applying to be physician-scientist at several institutions throughout the United States, and I am already receiving secondaries from top-10 schools such as Stanford and Johns Hopkins. This is a long track, but it will provide me with the tools I need to run a research lab and cancer clinical trials in the future.

Studying for the MCAT required a lot of self-discipline, but the tools from MCAT Self Prep and the guidance of my tutor kept me on track to succeed at a fraction of the cost that many of my friends paid for comparable programs. I was personally tutored and mentored by MCAT Self Prep’s Founder and CEO, Andrew George, so I am well acquainted with the MCAT Self Prep approach to conquering this test. I also have over a year and a half of experience as a volunteer tutor for chemistry and biology. As we study together, I will provide you with the same tools I used to get a top score, allowing you to reach your MCAT goals.

Beyond studying for the MCAT and doing research, I love to do a lot of things for fun and to keep busy. I swim to stay in shape, and I go camping and hiking to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. I also enjoy going to concerts in order to unwind a little bit. I have one younger sister who is starting college this year and happens to be a genius. Oh, I also lived in Africa for two years, which was pretty cool. Tutor with me and I’ll tell you about the time I saved my Congolese friend from being eaten by the hyenas!

I am excited to get to know you and help relieve the stress for you surrounding the MCAT. Talk soon!

Best,

Zachary

  • Hear what Bethany has to say about her experience tutoring with Zachary: “Zach always made himself available to help me and was willing to work with my schedule. He would break things down and explain them in a way that I could understand them. If I didn’t understand something right away, he was patient and worked with me until I felt confident in my understanding of the material. I would highly recommend Zach as a tutor for the MCAT.”

  • McKenna had a stellar experience with Zachary as her tutor: “I would recommend Zachary Reinstein as an MCAT tutor to anyone. While he has a depth of knowledge far beyond average for the undergraduate level, he is patient and good at making the complicated approachable and understandable. As my tutor and mentor he was constantly asking me follow-up questions to help me make connection to concepts that I already knew. Zachary is fun to talk to, patient, and approachable without compromising skill and knowledge.”

  • Breanna found Zachary to be especially personable and understanding: “Zach was always willing to accommodate in order to fit my schedule. He took the time to figure out what my individual learning style was, and broke things down visually to help me better understand difficult concepts. He never made me feel bad about having to repeat something and made sure I understood the material before moving on. His patient and compassionate character makes him a perfect candidate for an MCAT tutor!”
