Meet the Fractal Academy Premier MCAT Tutors



Kevin AndersonKevin W. Anderson, Ph.D. – MIT – Chemistry, Physics, Math, MCAT, DAT, Organic Chemistry

Kevin has a passion for teaching and mentoring Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental students. With over 14 years experience teaching students of all levels, Kevin has brought his unique teaching style to Fractal Academy to help students achieve their dream of being accepted into Medical/Dental School. You will see from day one, that Kevin will help you gain confidence in the difficult Scientific Principals and provide strategies and techniques to help you succeed. Kevin has been tutoring MCAT for the last 5 years and has been chosen as the lead author and editor of Barron’s up and coming DAT Preparation Book.

Yayoi KumataYayoi Kumata – Rutgers – Biology, Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physics, MCAT, DAT, SAT – Yayoi has a B.S. from Rutgers in biology/nursing and has been teaching science and math for over four years in a one-on-one level, as well as at the collegiate level at Rutgers University. Yayoi is patient and uses detailed self made diagrams and a systematic approach towards problem solving, which allows her students to grasp the deeper concepts, rather than just solve the problem. Yayoi has been rated one of the top MCAT and Biology/Science Educators in the North East over the last two years. Yayoi breaks down complicated concepts for her students to ensure they have a deep understanding of the material. Yayoi is amazing and the only way to find out is to see it for yourself!

Fractal Academy MCAT Reviews


“Yayoi is an AMAZING TEACHER! I thought I would NEVER EVER understand electromagnetism until Yayoi explained it! Now I *finally* get it… I didn’t even get electromagnetism when I took Physics!” – Pre-Medical and MCAT Student

“I love the way Yayoi teaches. I understood biology in a way I had never before. It was purely amazing and life changing. Seriously.” – Biology and MCAT Student

“Yayoi is the BEST TEACHER EVER! Would definitely recommend her to anyone for anything she teaches. Clear, nice and helpful.” – Anonymous Student

“After taking the MCAT once and not doing as well as I’d like, I went out to find a tutor who’d be able to help me. I found Kevin and chose him because of great reviews. I’ve worked with Kevin for about 6 months, in that time what Kevin has done for me is just outstanding. I went up 7 points in my retake on the MCAT, a substantial amount. Let’s begin with his values- he’s very flexible in his schedule, helps you understand a lot of information in a very easy to understand manner, and is truly a great educator. I have met but a handful of truly excellent educators in my continuing education, and I can say that Kevin is truly a great instructor. What makes him stand out from any other tutor are his teaching methods- he works out a problem out loud and shows you how he would approach a problem. Even if he doesn’t know the answer right away, he will work it out with you, step by step, until both Kevin and I are satisfied with the results. Kevin helped me specifically cover Chemistry, Organic Chem, Physics, and even some Biochemistry. Lastly, Kevin has a PhD from MIT, and you would never know unless you asked because he is one of the most humble and down to earth PhDs I have ever met (even after 4 years at Rutgers). I would highly recommend him for any subject he is willing to tutor because you will walk away highly impressed” - Chidrup T. – Medical Student

“Personable, Professional and Passionate about Subjects”

“Fractal Academy tutor Kevin worked this summer to provide structure to my daughter’s MCAT studies. He quickly assessed her weaknesses and addressed them at each lesson.  Kevin was able to relate to my daughter in a way that gave her confidence and this was our main goal for hiring him. I have encouraged my daughter to contact him even if she is up at school if she has tutoring needs, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for quality tutoring that produces results. My daughter takes the test in September and feels as if she is ready. Thanks Kevin!” - Susan from Ho Ho Kus, NJ on 8/31/13

“Unbelievably fantastic!”

“I could not even begin to say enough good things about Kevin’s tutoring skills – he is absolutely fantastic! He tutored my son for 2 semesters of organic chemistry and put together a tutorial for the MCAT. Never having used a tutor before, my son was hesitant to start, but immediately felt a connection with and found confidence in Kevin. Kevin was totally reliable, accessible, organized and patient. He is obviously so brilliant that he is able to take even the most complicated concepts and calmly break them down with reasonable explanations. Any time my son was feeling stress with his work, a session with Kevin would quickly alleviate his anxiety and give him the confidence to move forward. Beyond his intellectual skills, Kevin is a very kind, polite and approachable person. He relates extremely well with this age group.  I cannot imagine a more wonderful Science tutor than Kevin.” – Nancy from Mountain Lakes, NJ on 7/31/12

“I had originally asked Kevin for help with MCAT Physics and Chemistry, but he was always willing to go the extra mile and often asked if he could answer any questions I had on other sections of MCAT practice tests as well, including Organic Chemistry. When I started with Kevin, I was desperate – anyone who has taken the MCATs knows that they aren’t pleasant, and I was determined to make this my last retake – and Kevin made learning all of the material as pleasant as possible. He constantly had new tips for me, was always patient, and never hesitated to spend an extra five or ten minutes over our allotted time to make sure that he was fully explaining a concept. I’m only sorry I didn’t find Kevin before my first exam – I understood and learned more with him than I did in my own studying AND my years of undergraduate chem and physics classes. I’d recommend him to anyone, any time! Kevin is the best!!” – Caitlin C. – Current Medical Student

Kevin truly was my personal trainer during my MCAT preparations. I was pleasantly surprised when the first questions he asked me was “Do you stay physically active?” and “How is your sleep schedule?”. I have to say working out every other day and sticking to a strict sleep and work schedule, as he suggested, played a large role in my success. The majority of my success was the result of his creative tutoring style that showed me the why and how behind complex ideas and formulas in physics, general chemistry, and organic chemistry. I constantly struggled in my chemistry courses at college, but after working with Kevin I was confident in my abilities to approach any chemistry problem because he taught me how to approach and conceptualize a myriad of chemistry questions. The more I learned from Kevin, the more I followed and adapted to his thought process. Soon enough I was seamlessly interweaving concepts between physics, biology, and chemistry. After only two months of working with Kevin, I was confident and calm on the day of my MCAT. I recommend Kevin’s tutoring services to anyone who wants a less stressful and more efficient way to succeed on the MCATs” - Jaclyn M. – Osteopathic Medical Student
