Hello! I am a recent graduate of Washington University in St. Louis with a B.A. in Biochemistry and a minor in Psychology. Teaching has always been a huge passion of mine and I have had 3 years of experience in teaching?working as a Peer Mentor for General Chemistry and also as a Teaching Assistant for Biochemistry II during my undergraduate career at WashU. Since graduating, my tutoring has shifted its focus to the MCAT, where I specialize in teaching the sciences (Chem/Phys/Bio/Biochem/Psyc...
Reviews
Shannon has many qualities that qualify her as a really efficient tutor. For sure she is capable of ensuring that her students know how to solve a problem that the MCAT may ask. I believe it is her ability to understand and explain the concepts present in the exam that makes her such a great tutor. She is fully invested in her students and wastes no time during lessons. I look forward to continue studying with Shannon!

Shannon came to our first lesson very prepared! I told her I needed guidance setting up a MCAT study plan, and she created a calendar specific to my timing and needs to help me keep myself accountable for my study goals. We spent the rest of our session reviewing practice problems in a section that I noted I was weaker in, and she provided great insight and explanations as I went through answering the questions. Would definitely recommend seeking help from her!

Awesome sessions as usual and great teaching/explanation for my tricky topics. A nice mix of strategy tips as well as needed content review! Very knowledgeable and patient too!!
- Brooklynne J. from Bloomington, IL
Shannon is great to work with, she takes the time to work with you and make sure you understand the content in a way where you will retain the information she is teaching you. Definitely looking forward to working with her again!

Shannon helped me review the CARS section last week and was incredibly thorough in explaining why each answer was right or wrong, helping me attack the passage, and letting me know the tricks the MCAT likes to play in the CARS section. My CARS section significantly increased just within the week, from my first practice test to my last one.
- Bill Y. from Little Rock, AR
Shannon is truly an expert in everything related to the MCAT. She taught me how to properly review a diagnostic exam to pinpoint my troubled content areas. I plan to continue to use her MCAT expertise through tutoring sessions before test day.
- Ian J. from Madison, WI
Shannon helped me understand how to attack complex physics problems. She is able to break them down in a way that makes it easier to comprehend. I cannot wait for our next session to see how much I have improved.
- Orett B. from Boston, MA
Shannon let me show her my thought process working through answer choices and she then told me how she worked through answer choices. By providing me with tips such as not eliminating possible answers too early, and by seeing factually correct answer choices that did not answer the question being asked, Shannon made our time spent together very successful.
- Matt C. from Pittsburgh, PA
We went over every detail and explanation which was very helpful and I learned new strategies for CARS. It was good having someone explain each answer choice and why it was right/wrong.
- William C. from Great Neck, NY
She went over topics I needed help with and she helped explain them well. Really helpful to me and nice to me. She was great and knowledgeable. She prepared the lesson beforehand for me and was prepared during the lesson.
- Richard C. from Bronx, NY
Shannon was super helpful during my lesson! We went through different MCAT passages and she went through each answer choice and the concept relating to each answer. She is really knowledgeable about chemistry and I am looking forward to taking more sessions with her!
