Coach's bio

Lancelot graduated from Cornell University summa cum laude with a B.A. in Biology and Chemistry. During his time at Cornell, Lancelot researched the establishment of cell polarity in budding yeast in a biochemical lab and wrote a Senior Honors Thesis summarizing his work. He also worked as a biochemistry teaching assistant and mentored local middle school students to improve their writing skills.

As an MCAT tutor, Lancelot personalizes his teaching to best cater to his students’ needs. He helps students identify their strengths and weaknesses and focus their studying efforts on areas where they can improve most. Lancelot works through concepts with students and quizzes them periodically to solidify their content knowledge. He also understands that students may have busy schedules, and he works with them to establish a study plan that is both balanced and sustainable.

Outside of academics, Lancelot likes to listen to podcasts, bake pastries, and travel to foreign countries (in pre-COVID time).

Student Reviews

I was actually hesitant when I first used MedSchoolCoach; it was a lot of money and I wasn't sure how much help I really needed. I am so glad that I ended up using their services! My advisor was phenomenal and helped me navigate the shipwreck that is medical school admissions even in the most challenging of times. The advice, edits, and support that I received though med school coach undoubtedly aided in my success to attend my top choice allopathic program in the fall.
