Friends would describe Solymar (they call her Soly) as energetic, creative and compassionate. While in college, Soly realized she had a knack for teaching, as friends would come to her for help with complex courses such as Organic Chemistry. After struggling for months to prepare for the MCAT, but ultimately achieving a great score, Soly decided to share these hard-learned lessons by becoming a Kaplan MCAT tutor and has helped dozens of students reach their goal. Now in medical school, Soly continues to nurture her passion for helping others by volunteering at a clinic for uninsured patients as well as working towards her Masters in Health Policy Research. Soly is personally invested in her students’ success and enjoys seeing them gain confidence and clinical knowledge as she guides them through their Step 1 preparation. She will develop a customized study schedule that’s tailored to your progress, timeline and goals. She will help you choose the best study resources for your needs and make sure you use them effectively. In her sessions, she breaks down complicated topics and vignettes while also honing on test-taking strategies. Most importantly, Soly is a great listener and will provide insightful feedback and encouragement to help you reach your full potential.
