    Instructor Bios

    Kyle Peebles—Lead Instructor

    Kyle went to high school in Eagle Pass along the Texas-Mexico border. Kyle went on to attend Texas A&M, graduating with a BS in genetics and secondary education. Kyle taught high school students biology and chemistry in San Antonio before making the transition into research. He worked at Southwest Foundation for Biomedical Research examining expression levels of genes in adipose tissue of pedigreed baboon population. Kyle then left research (because you can only pipette so many times) and went back to school to receive a degree in professional nursing. Yes, Kyle really is a male nurse. He is now working in both a medical and surgical ICU in San Antonio. In his free time, Kyle likes to spend time with his wife and son, travel overseas, woodwork, perform weddings (he is certified to do so), and bask in the warm south Texas sun, floating down the rivers in truck tire inner tubes.

    Kyle has been teaching for the Princeton review since 2000, focusing on MCAT Biology and General Chemistry. He has been a Biology Master trainer since 2005, training new Princeton Review Biology teachers across the country. He has been the senior Biology instructor for MCAT Summer Immersion since its inception and is a premier MCAT Biology tutor. He has taught over 1000 students and run over 30 MCAT Trainings.

    What MCAT students say about Kyle:

    "Best bio teacher I have ever had!"

    "Hilarious and really good at getting the material across. Bonus points for patience! He's great one-on-one."

    "Kyle is probably the best bio Instructor I have ever had. I am a bio major and I have learned so much by attending his Bio lectures."

    Doug McLemore—Lead Instructor

    Doug grew up in Michigan, but doesn't like the Wolverines. He attended the University of Notre Dame and ultimately earned a BS in chemistry at Central Michigan University (yes, he is a Redwings fan). While at Colorado State University, which included two years at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Washington, Doug decided that a PhD was not in the cards and that teaching was the better and more enjoyable choice. He then lectured and coordinated chemistry and astronomy laboratories for 10 years at a community college and major university. He started teaching both MCAT Organic and General Chemistry for The Princeton Review in 2007. Soon thereafter, he accepted an offer from Chris Manuel to move to Austin and started a new life with The Princeton Review, the MCAT Summer Immersion course and Holiday Hell. He's now certified to teach all five MCAT subjects. Doug is a Master Trainer in Organic Chemistry and General Chemistry.

    In addition, Doug was one of the first TPR teachers to teach and tutor students and train teachers through Princeton Review's LiveOnline MCAT Program. He has been integral in the evolution of Princeton Review's online classes and tutoring. For fun, he teaches and volunteers at grade schools and middle schools (yeah, we really mean that) and watches at least one movie a day (thanks to Netflix).

    What MCAT Students say about Doug:

    "This guy is so good at EVERYTHING. He was so approachable for questions and was helpful in basically all the subjects. He knows so much chemistry, it is insane."
