"Hi, my name is Ellen, and I am an M.D. and resident physician. I am also a highly experienced tutor and academic coach. I currently tutor for the USMLE Step 1, Step 2CK, and Step 3, as well as NBME Shelf exams for medical students. I scored in the top quartile on Step 1, received a 271 on Step 2CK, and scored in the top 10% on Step 3 as well. I received high marks on all my shelf exams allowing me to earn honors in every rotation. I graduated in the top 5% of my class from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, a top 15 ranked medical school, and matched at my top choice for residency, a top 10 children's hospital, and am currently a resident physician.

I additionally provide medical school admissions counseling for pre-medical students who need additional guidance with their applications. This includes mock interviews (both traditional and MMI format), personal statement and AMCAS/AACOMAS activities descriptions editing, and help with identifying an appropriate list of schools to apply to. I love helping future physicians reach their goals!

I have a proven track record as an excellent standardized test-taker, and I am a study enthusiast who would love to help others succeed, whether that be subject material, test preparation and test taking strategies, or general study skills. I offer evidence-based teaching and test-taking strategies to help my students excel. I look forward to sharing my passion for learning and helping you reach your academic goals!

I graduated from the University of Colorado - Boulder a semester early, in December 2012. At CU, I majored in Psychology and additionally took Pre-med courses. In my time at University of Colorado I participated on the Women's Division 1 volleyball team, and continued as a student assistant coach after injury ended my playing career. I then worked for several years at a community hospital, before applying to medical school as a non-traditional applicant." less...
