Boston MCAT tutor Swetha D. is a medical student at Boston University School of Medicine and will graduate in 2023. She was initially intrigued by the discrepancies in healthcare through her clinical work in rural India and decided to pursue a career in medicine with a focus on global health. She will be a first generation medical professional. She completed her undergraduate degree in 2019 as part of the Seven Year Accelerated BA/MD program at Boston University. Swetha majored in Medical Science and minored in Psychology.
Swetha self-studied for the MCAT in 1.5 months after her sophomore year of undergrad and earned a 516 (94th percentile). She has experience tutoring students in the natural and social sciences at Boston University’s Educational Resource Center. In addition, she has experience teaching all four of the MCAT sections for a well-known test prep company.
As a first generation medical student, she knows how overwhelming it can be to take on a test like the MCAT and to navigate through pre-med. With her experiences, she wishes to help students create structured, personalized study plans and conquer challenging topics of the exam.
Prior to the start of medical school, Swetha spent 6 months in London volunteering at the Doctors of the World Surgery Center. She advocated for refugees, migrants, and vulnerable people to gain access to equitable healthcare. She hopes to practice as a surgeon for underserved populations.
In her free time, she loves to recreate recipes from her travels, play tennis, read mystery novels in her hammock, and visit lighthouses along the northeast coast.
