Fractal DAT Reviews

“I worked closely with Kevin and Yayoi for seven weeks to prepare for the DAT during the summer of 2014. Both Kevin and Yayoi are not only brilliant in the sciences, but understand the fundamentals of educating and communicating with their students in a matter that makes learning easy and enjoyable” – Jordan E. Tulane University 2014

“I worked with both Kevin and Yayoi at Fractal Academy over the summer of 2014. They were both extremely helpful in my prep for the Dental Admissions Test.” Megann M. – Virginia Tech – 2014

“I was tutored in many subjects while studying for the DAT. Great experience, helped me understand concepts and solidified areas I was weak in.” – Jenna F. – University of Delaware – 2014

“EXCELLENT! I wouldn’t know half of the information I do not, or understand it down to its essence if not for this. I have only have had four sessions so far and have come a long way already! Would highly recommend for DAT/MCAT/ any type of prep” – Danielle – Duquesne

“Kevin was the best thing that happened to me this summer while studying for the DAT.  I worked on the Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Quantitative and PAT sections of the DAT.  Without him there is no way I would have been able to bring up my score from a 17 to a 21” – Cara S. – Dental Student at Maryland

Future Dentists who Excelled with Fractal Academy

“I worked closely with Kevin and Yayoi for seven weeks to prepare for the DAT during the summer of 2014. Both Kevin and Yayoi are not only brilliant in the sciences, but understand the fundamentals of educating and communicating with their students in a matter that makes learning easy and enjoyable. Kevin explained shortcuts to conquer problems in general and organic chemistry that are needed for high performance on the DAT. Yayoi answered all my biology questions without hesitation and her colorful, textbook like, drawings turn difficult biology concepts only explained in literature into easy to understand visuals. I traveled over an hour and a half to attend sessions at Fractal Academy and I am so grateful to have discovered them. If you have questions please ask Kevin for my contact information. Good luck!” – Jordan E. Tulane University 2014

“I worked with Kevin and Yayoi at Fractal Academy the summer before taking the DAT.  I was in a tight spot since I was taking still taking organic chemistry while starting my DAT prep. I am very self motivated but Yayoi and Kevin honestly helped me with any detail related to the DAT or the classes I was taking. They encouraged me and helped build my confidence with science and math significantly. I couldn’t even try to stump them with any of my questions. Tests in general make me a little anxious and knowing that I could throw any question at them anytime eased much of my anxiety.  After I completed the DAT, (and completely exceeding my expectations) I thought my tutoring days were behind me…. But, I started biochemistry the next semester was so relieved to know that if I needed Kevin or Yayoi they would let me ask them any and all questions I had about the subject.

Ps. I live in California and was skeptical about the time difference and Internet sessions at first but it was flawless. The Skype sessions with the use of an online whiteboard was even better than meeting in person for me (I did all my tutoring in my pajamas!)
Pss. I got into my #1 choice school and I think that Kevin gave me the confidence I needed to even apply there.. I can’t thank Fractal enough!!!” – Tiffany W. – California

 

“I worked with both Kevin and Yayoi at Fractal Academy over the summer of 2014. They were both extremely helpful in my prep for the Dental Admissions Test. Yayoi worked with me on Biology and really knew her stuff. She would thoroughly explain topics in Biology that I was confused on, while making notes for me to take home so I could study them. Kevin helped me with the math, general chemistry, organic chemistry, and perceptual ability portion of the DAT. One thing that I really liked about Kevin’s teaching style is that he would always ask me what I wanted to work on. This allowed me to really focus on my weak subjects. Also, before I stepped into Fractal Academy, I had no idea how to even approach the perceptual ability portion of the test. On my real DAT, I conquered the perceptual ability! I would highly recommend Fractal Academy for anyone preparing for the DAT! They are the reason I did so well on the DAT, which helped me to become accepted to my dream school, The University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine.” Megann M. – Virginia Tech – 2014

“Kevin was the best thing that happened to me this summer while studying for the DAT.  I worked on the Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Quantitative and PAT sections of the DAT.  Without him there is no way I would have been able to bring up my score from a 17 to a 21. He gave me the knowledge and confidence I needed to get the results that I wanted. I started out scoring below average in organic chemistry and with his help I was able to get a 22 in that section on the test. Thanks to him I was able to get the scores that I needed to get into dental school. I could have never done it without him.” – Cara S. – Dental Student at Maryland

I've used Victor from Fractal Academy for over a year (and counting!) while studying math at Rutgers University. I started out after just flunking the first exam in Calculus II. Victor was able to teach me the new and old material in a way that made sense to me. He even created his own study guides on the concepts for me to utilize. Going from flunking on the first exam to an 87 on the second exam. He has continued to help me with Physics, Linear Algebra, Mutivariable Calculus, and Differential Equations. I will continue using his services for my upper tier math courses. Highly recommend Fractal Academy for anyone struggling with college level math courses.

Kevin was great! He tutored me for the MCAT, especially organic chemistry. We had a very short timeline, so that I could take an early test. He created a great structure that hit all the key components I needed, and distilled the concepts I found difficult into much simpler concepts. His homework reinforced those principles and I definitely saw my scores improve working with him! I highly recommend him.

I have worked with Kevin through high school and part of my college years. I am very grateful on how helpful and encouraging he was teaching me. He is very knowledgeable and can figure ANYTHING out. He seriously got me through the horrors of chemistry and calculus with shining grades. He's also very funny and an interesting person. Tutoring was something I would look forward too. Not only is it fun to spend time with him but he makes learning hard material a lot easier to understand. You can't go wrong working with Kevin.

I only began working with Lynda Elliot this year. She tutors me in honors physics, which, to put it frankly, has saved my life in that class. If I didn't have her tutelage, guidance, or instruction, I wouldn't have understood fundamental concepts such as kinematics, projectile, forces and Newton's Laws, gravitational and circular motion, work and energy, waves, and light and optics.
She is patient, willing to put up with my frustration, and always readily available whenever I need help. She goes farther than I ever ask her to simply to help me, and that has been indispensable in me maintaining high grades in a very difficult class that requires critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Physics is probably one of my least-favorite classes, but I always look forward to working with Lynda because she makes our sessions both accessible and enjoyable.
At the risk of sounding colloquial, audacious, or cliche, I must say that Lynda is not only my tutor but also a valuable friend. I treasure both her help in physics (which is imperative as I am a senior and have to maintain my grades for college applications) and her advice concerning topics beyond the classroom. She is an extremely intelligent, very compassionate, and truly fun tutor, and I highly recommend her to anyone who needs help in physics.

Kevin is the definition of a qualified, brilliant, and experienced tutor. He had worked with me throughout my four years of college covering a variety of subjects including Organic Chemistry, Physics, and College Math. He was also my tutor when preparing to take the Dental Admissions Test. Kevin is not only patient but he explains complex concepts in a way that is easy to understand. He is very professional, caring, and successful in helping his students' achieve their goals and maintaining good grades. Another important aspect is that Kevin is accommodating and works to coordinate schedules. I was lucky to have Kevin as my tutor and HIGHLY recommend him.
