    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."

    Only our most experienced and successful MCAT Instructors are called on to lead our MCAT Summer Immersion boot camps. These are the folks who write The Princeton Review MCAT books, design our courses and train other MCAT teachers. Your MCAT Summer Immersion team will include:

    Adrian Sanchez—Biological Sciences Instructor

    Adrian graduated from UCSD's Revelle College in 2004 and was awarded undergraduate degrees in classical studies, linguistics, animal physiology and neurology and biochemistry (with a dual emphasis in organic and inorganic chemistry). Adrian is a Premier tutor and a Certified Master Trainer for MCAT Biology. He earned his California Teacher's Credential immediately following graduation from UCSD.

    Adrian has been teaching with The Princeton Review since 2003 and taught throughout the Northeastern Seaboard while attending a graduate medical program in Boston. He is currently completing graduate thesis work with UCSD and the Salk Institute in medical sciences. Adrian wrote and developed the Organic Chemistry materials for MCAT Summer Immersion and contributed to the Biology content. His MCAT score places him in the top 1% of test takers.

    Jennifer Wooddell—Verbal Instructor

    Jennifer received her BA from Harvard University in history and literature. After doing graduate work at the University of Chicago and USCD, she came to work full-time for Princeton Review. She teaches LSAT and MCAT Verbal Reasoning classes; she also trains new teachers and trains people to train new teachers (she has even trained people to train people to train new teachers). Jennifer works in LSAT and MCAT course development too: she is the MCAT Verbal and Writing lead developer, which means that she writes or edits all Princeton Review Verbal materials. She enjoys this job in part because it's always intellectually stimulating to figure out the hidden logic of the test and try to beat the test writers at their own game. Her favorite moments, however, are in class, especially when she sees that light go on in a student's eyes when he or she "gets it."
