What Students Are Saying

​​”Perhaps the most important thing in your life beyond your family is the trajectory of your career. Marcel, as my tutor, coach, motivator, and mentor influenced this trajectory tremendously. Without this tutoring program, I sincerely doubt I would have passed the USMLE, much less done well enough to match in one of the most competitive fields. Marcel not only provided tutoring, test taking strategy and study structure but also residency application coaching. He is exceptional and devoted to what he does. For something that is so important in our movement through life, this service was priceless.”

“I really enjoyed our trial session and think you are an excellent teacher. I must say again how great of a teacher I think you are and what a benefit it must be to those who work with you or are trained by you.”
