Pratik graduated with distinction from Cornell University with a degree in Biological Sciences (Genetics, Genomics, and Development). He was a lead teaching assistant in Genetics, a teaching assistant in Biochemistry, and a private tutor in Chemistry and Organic Chemistry. As a lead TA in Genetics, he helped rework the course curriculum and logistics after the pandemic forced students online. He is involved as a team leader in his psychology laboratory, doing cutting-edge research on medical decision-making.
Pratik now has extensive experience with MCAT tutoring, and he loves working with students from all backgrounds at any stage of their studies. While he emphasizes self-care during the studying process, ensuring that students are in their best state of mind, he ensures that they are working their hardest toward their MCAT goals. Pratik personalizes his teaching for each student, helping them with their own weaknesses and emphasizing their unique strengths, ensuring that they are getting the greatest score possible.
He focuses on understanding the whole concept through-and-through instead of just memorizing forgettable minutiae. By focusing on problem-solving skills and a ground-up understanding of the material, Pratik’s tutoring imparts an understanding that carries through to test day and beyond.
