Maya helped me write a letter of intent for medical school. She helped me structure my writing to flow cohesively, highlighting my strengths while also including certain details and phrasing to show emotion. I definitely recommend Maya if you need any help with personal statements, cover letters or papers

This was my first session with Maya. She is a great tutor and helped me through a brutal CARS passage that I couldn't break down myself. We went through each answer choice and broke it down to which ones were plausible, I highly recommend her to anybody.

Maya S. really helped me with med school prep, specifically with the process of the personal statement. From brainstorming to rough draft to line-by-line edits she was a great help and could do it all!
- Marshall K. from Chicago, IL
During our tutoring sessions for MCAT CARS, Maya was very informative and explained the thought process and reasoning for choosing each answer in immense detail. Maya helped me improve the way I think about questions, and about the reading passages in general. Maya is also very open to hearing students' perspectives on why they choose different (incorrect) answer choices. We developed CARS test-taking strategies together, and Maya was always open to feedback about whether or not the explanations made sense.

Maya and I went over questions that I had from this past week. She took the questions I sent her and came to our session with diagrams and explanations ready. She makes sure to ask about my thought processes and approach to the problem and then helps guide me to a new approach that may help me get to the correct answer when I approach a similar question in the future.
- Megan G. from Baltimore, MD
Maya was on point with every bit of my Med school application process. She was very patient and extremely knowledgeable. Hey kind spirit and uplifting attitude made the process enjoyable. I highly recommend her!!!
- Samuela L. from West Palm Beach, FL
Before working with Maya, I thought there was no hope in improving my MCAT CARS score. However, within a couple of lessons, Maya helped me find a new strategy that made a huge difference in my confidence and performance. She gave me several useful tips and approached every lesson with patience and positivity. Talking through CARS passages with Maya helped me learn to read effectively, reason through questions, and choose the most correct answers. I am extremely grateful that I got to work with Maya and I attribute much of my improvement to her teaching.
- Lynette F. from Leesburg, FL
Maya is an incredible tutor who has been very effective at helping me continue to study Russian. She puts up with my constant barrage of questions as well as my frequent moments of stupidity; a herculean task indeed. She always has interesting lessons planned and is happy to go over any topics you have questions about. If you are looking to learn Russian or continue it, Maya is more than capable of helping you.
- Nate D. from Medina, OH
Maya was very personable. She gave me tips on new strategies and gave me comfort in moving forward with my MCAT study. This was my first session, but I enjoyed her approach to the passages reviewed.
- Ashley G. from Laurel, MD
Maya is a really patient and helpful tutor. We did some interview practice and she addressed a lot of my questions regarding medical school, either about the application, work-life balance or financial aspect. She also practices English grammar and oral speaking with me, and I found it really helpful.
- Youya W. from Pittsburgh, PA
Maya helped me polish and edit my application for medical school. She is a great writer who knows exactly what graduate school applications are looking for! I would 100% recommend her if you need any help with writing essays or filling out applications! She was always flexible with time and was able to meet when it was most convenient for me. One of the best tutors I?ve worked with on Wyzant!
