Gurjit Kaur serves our scholars as the Test Prep coach. Miss Kaur grew up in Central California and she is a proud first generation college graduate! Thanks to her supportive parents, encouraging teachers and strong belief in her capabilities, she earned a BS in Physiological Sciences with a minor in Society and Genetics from UCLA. Following graduation, she served as an Americorps member with City Year Los Angeles. She provided academic and socio-emotional support by developing and implementing weekly ELA and Math intervention session plans that targeted identified students' skill gaps. After her service year, she moved back home to help establish the health education and outreach program for Golden Valley Health Centers, a non-profit health organization, as a co-founding community health worker. Her team established relationships with local school districts, community leaders, and senior living centers in order to provide resources for underserved families. Most recently, Miss Kaur completed a post baccalaureate program through the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. Earlier this year, she successfully took the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) and earned a score in the 95th percentile! She is currently applying to medical school with the hopes of matriculating in Fall 2020! She believes every scholar can become a successful test taker with individualized support and resources, which is why she is excited to join the Equitas team!
