Tyler started teaching for Kaplan in 2010 while also working as a molecular genetics researcher. He quickly fell in love with the dynamic nature of teaching and transitioned to teaching the MCAT full time. Tyler loves speaking in front of crowds, and it shows: His love of teaching, his passion for helping students, and his zeal for science helped earn him the recognition of Southwest Pre-health Teacher of the Year in 2013. Tyler currently holds a B.S. in Chemistry, an M.S. in Biomedical Science, and he is taking classes toward a graduate degree in mathematics. He's excited to direct our Summer Intensive Program in San Diego and help students achieve their MCAT goals.
