"Hi, I'm Gunther! I graduated summa cum laude with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering and a M.Eng. in Chemical Engineering. I was also the Outstanding Chemical Engineering Graduate for my school. I have three years' experience tutoring entry- and upper-level math, chemistry, physics, and engineering. I believe that understanding STEM topics requires a measured, problem-based approach that builds understanding in the fundamental science.

I self-taught and studied for the MCAT using less than $200 of outside resources and before taking Biology and Biochemistry, so I understand the struggles and nuances of studying for this important entrance exam. I scored in the 100th percentile (Composite: 525 | Chem/Phys: 131 | CARS: 132 | Bio/Biochem: 131 | Psych/Soc: 131). Many forums (Reddit/SDN) advocate passive studying techniques, using Anki or other flash card methods. From my engineering background, I have found that a measured, problem-oriented approach was extremely effective for improving my MCAT from my initial practice score (502) to my actual test (525).

M.Eng. in Chemical Engineering with a concentration in Math - three years tutoring experience in Calculus and Differential Equations. Extensive experience with Microsoft Excel as a math and engineering tool - VBA, Solver, Data Analysis Toolpack, structural techniques to designing math-oriented worksheets.

Top graduate in Chemical Engineering, three years tutoring experience in general and organic chemistry, mass/energy balances, engineering thermodynamics, heat transfer, mass transfer, and kinetics.

First-time 100th percentile score: Composite: 525 | Chem/Phys: 131 | CARS: 132 | Bio/Biochem: 131 | Psych/Soc: 131

Problem-based approach to the MCAT; used low-budget resources to achieve a top score. The MCAT is not the SAT or a final exam; it requires a serious, long-term plan and time commitment, and requires more than passive study techniques." less...
