Meet our MCAT Summer Intensive Program Directors.
Academic Director - Atlanta
After graduating from Emory University with a degree in Neuroscience and Religion, Amit went on to earn a Master of Public Health degree from the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory and worked with a variety of organizations in the Atlanta community, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. He returned home to complete two years of medical school at the University of Kansas before joining Kaplan in 2008 as an MCAT instructor in New York City. Amit is known for his energetic teaching style and his dedication to personalizing the prep experience of each student. Outside the classroom, Amit can be found traveling the globe, wandering around New York to develop his photography skills, or in museums staring in awe at dinosaur skeletons. This summer he’s thrilled to be headed back to Atlanta as the Summer Intensive Program Academic Director!
Academic Director - Boulder
After graduating from the University of Illinois in 2006 with a degree in Psychology and Chemistry, John moved to Colorado to teach as a Kaplan MCAT instructor, volunteer as a Wilderness EMT, and for a short while, teach as a lecturer at the University of Colorado. During his time as an MCAT expert, he has taught thousands of students, developed several MCAT resources, and mentored dozens of teachers. He joined the San Diego Summer Intensive Program faculty in 2008, and returned to San Diego as Academic Director from 2009 to 2013. He directed the Boulder Summer Intensive Program for it's first year in 2013 and is returning to direct the program in 2014. When he's not lecturing, you'll usually find him skiing, snowboarding, biking, exploring the mountains, or learning to play a new instrument.
Academic Director - Boston
After earning a B.A. in Physics from The University of Idaho, as well as a B.S. in Biology and an MBA from Boise State University, Lee successfully gained medical school admission, but decided to take time to pursue his passion for teaching and moved to Austin, Texas to teach as a Kaplan MCAT instructor. An expert in all things MCAT, he has helped many students achieve their goal scores. He looks forward to returning to Boston this year as a veteran instructor at the Summer Intensive Programs, having taught at the Boulder program in 2013, the Boston program in 2012, and the San Diego programs in 2011 and 2013. When Lee is not enlightening students with his extensive MCAT prowess, he can be found defying physical and mental limitations, as evidenced by his recent completion of the Ironman triathlon.
Academic Director - San Diego
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.
Academic Director - Toronto
Alex quickly discovered her passion for teaching after she started tutoring in biology and chemistry in high school. A Kaplan Summer Intensive Program alumna, she was awed by how much care Kaplan put into providing the best learning experience for its students and saw an immense opportunity to give back by joining its team of experts. She is currently exploring the research avenue by working in HIV and neurology laboratories at McGill University and is taking the opportunity to learn about the European healthcare system by attending a five-week shadowing experience in Spain at the end of this summer. Having directed the inaugural MCAT Summer Intensive Programs last year in Beirut, she is incredibly excited and honored to be back home to run the first Canadian program of its kind and is dedicated to provide the same flawless experience she had to help students achieve their goals.

- Your MCAT score is a strong predictor of your med school success, especially in regard to GPA and board scores*
Twice as many doctors prepared with Kaplan for the MCAT than with any other course.* And since your MCAT score is so important, you'll want to trust a leader with these three unique benefits over the competition:
