Boston MCAT Prep Tutor
Info on the MCAT
The MCAT is a graduate admissions test for medical school. It tests Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems, Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills, Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems, and Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior. It consists of four sections, each consisting of passage-based and individual questions. Each section takes 90 to 95 minutes to complete, so the exam takes 6 hours (longer with breaks included). The exam requires outside knowledge, including the information learned in college courses in General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, General Biology, Biochemistry, Physics, Psychology, and Sociology.
Our teaching style
Most test preparation companies try to convince you that the MCAT is impossibly difficult, and it’s only with their help that you might possibly survive it. I don’t believe this. The MCAT is hard, but it’s not impossible. It’s irresponsible of an educator to intimidate their students, and so I do the opposite.
Our teaching style strives to make the MCAT seem conquerable. We provide a clear roadmap to success, easy to understand techniques and strategies to get there, clearly presented content, and continual encouragement and support to my students. Our goal is solely to make my students succeed on the MCAT with a minimum amount of stress on their part. That’s it.

About our MCAT Tutor
Our MCAT tutor is Nick Morriss. Nick is a graduate of Colby College. After studying during undergrad, Nick scored a 525 on the MCAT, placing him in the 99th percentile. He tutored throughout undergrad in both the hard sciences and social sciences.
Nick is an extremely helpful tutor. He clearly has an excellent grasp of the material and was able to teach me both the fundamentals of each topic and also how to better prepare for the MCAT itself. Based on my experience with Nick tutoring me, I would highly recommend Nick to any one that is looking to succeed on the MCAT.
