    The program in Austin was awesome! The Instructors were all VERY knowledgeable…The instructors and office staff were very accommodating in making sure the students were happy and had what they needed."

    "I have been promoting the program to my friends… I told them the course is well worth (and then some) the money you pay for it."

    Warren Wolf: MCAT General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Verbal
    Premier Tutor
    Master Trainer
    Certified since 1995

    Warren joined the Princeton Review in 1995 after studying geology and environmental sciences at Brown and Columbia Universities. He focuses on the MCAT with his extensive experience in teaching students at MIT, Harvard University, Boston University as well as the Tufts University and Bennington College Postbaccalaureate Premedical Programs.

    Warren is a Master Trainer of MCAT Physics and MCAT General Chemistry and trains new instructors for offices around the country.

    Eddie Schiffman: MCAT Organic Chemistry
    Premier Tutor
    Master Trainer
    Certified since 2005

    Eddie Schiffman is a master at teaching organic chemistry in ways that translate to student success. One of the most highly sought-after organic chemistry tutors in Boston, Eddie has been a full-time professional organic chemistry tutor for over 10 years. Since January 2005, he has taught organic chemistry to hundreds of students through The Princeton Review. In October 2012, Eddie was named the Top Princeton Review MCAT Instructor in the Eastern Region.

    Eddie has also been a Master Trainer for the Princeton Review since 2009. He is one of an elite group of Master Trainers who travel the country training new Princeton Review instructors.

    Eddie realizes that the bottom line for the MCAT student is getting the correct answers and getting them quickly. His approach to teaching the MCAT is threefold: teaching the key principles of what is tested on the exam, teaching skills for quickly eliminating incorrect answers and teaching how to deduce the correct answer when knowledge and/or understanding is coming up short.

    Eddie has a bachelor's degree in food science and a minor in chemistry. After years of working in the food industry doing research and development, Eddie decided to pursue his true calling—teaching students organic chemistry. Understanding that organic chemistry is not typically a student favorite and can be dry, Eddie brings enthusiasm, humor and levity to the class. His reputation precedes him: it's not uncommon for students to seek out specific Princeton Review courses that Eddie is teaching.

    Julian Fekety: MCAT Physics, General Chemistry
    Premier Tutor
    Master Trainer
    Certified since 1997

    Cynthia Cowan: MCAT Verbal
    Premier Tutor
    Certified since 2005

    Since she began teaching MCAT Verbal classes in 2005, Cynthia has helped hundreds of students improve their scores and earn admission to medical schools across the country. Her students succeed because they build better reading and critical thinking skills, but also because they learn to think like the test, to accurately interpret what the test is asking and avoid common traps when selecting the most appropriate answer.

    "I believe you have to be really pragmatic about the Verbal," she says, describing her approach. "It can't just be about 'How can I think harder about this text?' It's got to be, 'What do I need to do to score points?' That's what I show people how to do. Score points." Between her no-nonsense approach and her infectious energy and enthusiasm in the classroom, students often find that, Verbal isn't that bad!

    Currently, Cynthia is pursuing her second postgraduate degree: she's earning a master's in education, special studies in education policy and reform at Harvard University.

    Cynthia has previously taught The Princeton Review's MCAT Summer Immersion course in California.
