Clara has been a full-time MCAT expert for over seven years and has worked with hundreds of students, while also architecting and writing a wide variety of MCAT practice materials. She graduated from the University of Southern California with a B.S. in neuroscience. Clara is also the co-founder of Frameshift MCAT, a company that provides critical-thinking-focused resources that complement any prep method you’re using, including tutoring. As a tutor, she focuses above all on what the AAMC actually tests and how they test it (in other words, “MCAT-like thinking”). Her favorite MCAT topic is acid-base chemistry, which she can talk about for longer than any reasonable person would ever want to listen.
