What We’re All

We understand that high-stakes testing is stressful enough!

We believe that high-stakes testing doesn’t have to be a tradeoff between your wallet and your dream score.

Inspired by the pressure-packed process of studying for the MCAT®, the KOTC Team thought:

“How can we make quality test-prep accessible, affordable, and engaging?”

Here are the results of that question, as well as the individuals who helped make it happen.

Heath Rutledge-Jukes

A recent graduate of Florida Southern College, Heath scored in the 99th percentile on the MCAT®. On campus, he was the tutor for genetics and organic chemistry. He aims to help other pre-medical students by sharing the tools and strategies which helped him succeed through a fun, engaging app.

William Kelly

William triple-majored in Accounting, Economics & Finance, and Business Administration and recently graduated from Cornell University with a Master’s degree in Accounting. He is excited to have have helped so many premedical students through the King of the Curve app.

AndrewPaul McIntosh

AP McIntosh, another recent graduate of Florida Southern College, graduated with a BS in Psychology and a BA in Communication.
He enjoys interacting with others and believes that being of service is of utmost importance.

Fun fact: In addition to King of the Curve, he is an active researcher and Toastmaster.

Dang Nguyen

Dang Nguyen is a third-year student pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering at the University of South Florida. His primary interest lies in global cardiovascular health with a focus on low- and middle-income countries. He has worked on establishing a telehealth network for cardiac care across rural areas of the Philippines and founded his non-profit organization to offset the cost of heart surgeries for children in Southern Vietnam. Dang is the Co-Principal Investigator at Stanford School of Medicine on a randomized clinical trial investigating an intervention for hypertension management and currently works with Harvard, Johns Hopkins, UCSF and UPenn on different research projects.


I’m currently studying Biomedical Engineering on the pre-med track at Duke University. I’m honored to be a part of the KOTC team, and I’m excited to help with content development and community growth. KOTC’s mission of making pre-health education more engaging and accessible fuels me— and I strive to reflect this mission through my contributions to content, app, and user growth. Fun fact: I grew up in Beijing and lived in 4 different states throughout my childhood.

Saso Krstovski

Saso Krstovski, a current undergraduate student studying biology, serves as the Chief of Content Development. His background as an anatomy, biology, and chemistry tutor enables him to produce content daily, allowing users to continuously have new, informative, and high-quality study resources. In addition, he quality checks current content, to ensure it is up-to-date and accurate, while also serving at times as a bridge between the founders and interns!

Verna Drieas

My name is Verna and I am currently working towards my path of becoming a PA! I graduated with my Bachelor’s of Science in Biology from the University of California, San Diego; shortly after I pursued my Master’s in Biomedical Sciences from the California University of Science and Medicine! Working with King of the Curve has been one of my proudest achievements as I get to work on developing content, enhancing user experience and creating features that promote active learning. Through my work at KOTC, I am able to bring accessibility to the pre-healthcare path for all students. Without barriers of access, healthcare can be diversified and patient care improved
