Success Stories
After being out of school for three years, I was not excited to take the GRE. But I wanted to go to graduate school, and since most of the schools I was applying to required it, I knew I had to commit to getting a decent score. The 90-minute weekly sessions I had with my tutor made all the difference. He helped me understand that the most important part of my preparation was not to relearn all of the things I had forgotten since college, but to become a strategic test-taker. He taught me many effective strategies and tricks, which boosted my confidence and enabled me to get above average scores. He was also able to cater to my personal needs as a student. Because I was applying to graduate school for creative writing, my tutor suggested that we spent the bulk of our time focusing on the verbal section, since my prospective schools focused on that score. And that's something a GRE prep textbook or class can't offer. Most importantly, Tutor the People was the most affordable test prep service in the area, and I didn't have to purchase a single book! Thanks to my tutor, I am now on my way to graduate school next year.

I had a great experience. The staff were super helpful answering all my questions when I was deciding how many hours and what plan to go with, and the ability to have a payment plan really made tutoring accessible for me. My tutor, Julian, was extremely flexible with scheduling and the ability to do sessions over Skype allowed me to work it into my busy life very easily. By working with Julian I was able to increase my GMAT score 50 points, which was instrumental in my acceptance to my first choice business school. Thank you!!

After a long search for a GMAT prep company, I found Tutor the People. I was initially interested because they were a lot more affordable than other prep companies. However, after a personal chat with one of the company's founders, it was apparent they lacked nothing in quality for the bargain. They had a very personal and flexible approach for what I was looking for, and set me up with a tutor to match my needs. All in all, they helped me add nearly 100 points to my GMAT score, and helped me in getting into the top school of my choice.

Tutor the People has led my academic achievement very successfully; especially, during my undergraduate and graduate studies. Tutor the People helped me to become a better essay writer by giving me insightful and critical feedback as well as providing me with precise guidelines to create better essay structures. More importantly, as an international student, my essay improved thoroughly through their proofreading. I highly recommend Tutor the People for your academic success!

I have had an amazing experience working with Tutor the People. The MCAT can be really intimidating but from the moment I contacted them I have received nothing but support, valuable information and encouragement. Since I had to study during the semester, I was very concerned about fitting in enough time to properly prepare between classes and research. But my tutor immediately helped me organize a great, personalized study plan and assisted me in finding the best MCAT prep materials I didn't even know existed. In the end, I earned a 522 (99% percentile) and I know I couldn't have done it without the help from Tutor the People!

I learned how to maximize my study time, which materials to use, and how to attack specific kinds of questions that I frequently struggled with. Both of my tutors took time to make sure that I understood the answer to each question. They pushed me to dedicate significant amounts of time to studying, and they helped me use this time in the best way. I am so happy with my choice to work with Tutor the People and study independently rather than taking a course through a well-known company. This opportunity raised my MCAT score by 7 points from my first practice test and helped me excel in my weakest subjects. I would highly recommend Tutor the People if you are looking to work hard with tutors who are committed to your success and if you want to master the new MCAT in an efficient and fulfilling way.

I worked with Chris to pass the CPA exam (Reg)and it really made a difference. He gave me the confidence to study and pass the exam. It was easy to deal with Tutor the People and since I did not use up all of my hours they easily refunded what was left over. I would recommend any of my friends use this service.

Hi! My name is Emma. About this time last year, I was starting to get very worried, and stressed about the ISEE test, especially in pre-algebra. I was so overwhelmed with all the studying. My mom got a tutor. I was worried at first, but he was very clear of what I needed to work on. I was very confident going into the test, and got a great score. If I ever have trouble again, I will definitely use tutor the people.

Prior to choosing Tutor the People as my verbal MCAT prep source I was a bit hesitant about having the sessions over Skype. However, after meeting for our first trial session I was positive my tutor was the man for the job. He was well organized and structured the course to fit my schedule. He was very communicative as to how the sessions would progress and where we should be towards the middle and end of our course. Not only was he a master at the verbal section, but he was able to effectively teach me his strategies, and help me craft the skill set necessary to be successful. The investment was well worth it and my tutor helped me increase my verbal score by 5 points!

I can't say enough good things about Crystal. She's super patient, knowledgeable, and encouraging. The first time I took the MCAT I got a 31 even though I felt I've done all I could in terms of content. I wanted to improve my score but was hitting roadblocks studying independently because I couldn't pinpoint exactly why I got certain questions wrong, and thus did not know how best to correct them. Crystal was extremely good at this and taught me many strategies to conquer types of questions that I couldn't previously. There were also times during verbal review that I just felt burnt out and discouraged given how hard it is to improve verbal scores, but Crystal was patient with me and drilled strategies with me constantly. I ended up getting an 11 on verbal!

5 stars are not enough to rate Tutor the People. They go beyond what most MCAT prep courses offer. I highly recommend them for MCAT and medical school preparations. Not only did they help me score 15 points higher on my MCAT, but also helped me during the medical school application process. Very thankful for this great program!! :)

I ended up doing great in my chemistry class with Jordan’s help, at the end of the semester I got an A. I was struggling so much in the beginning of the semester before I sought help, and after my lessons with him I was able to understand the material so much better and felt a lot better about the class as a whole. I would strongly recommend him to anybody struggling with chemistry and other classes.

After I was disappointed with my GRE score, I knew I had limited options if I wanted to improve before graduate application deadlines. An expensive course was out of the question, both due to my complicated work schedule and the steep financial burden that accompanies the GRE and application fees. Tutor for the People gave me the opportunity to get one on one tutoring with a custom plan that allowed me to improve my score across the board in the small window of time I had available before I retook the GRE test. My tutor was thorough and flexible, and the personalized assistance allowed me to focus exactly on my weaknesses. There is no way I could have improved my score so much on my own. Thank you!

I am very thankful I worked with Laila. She helped me learn new tricks to master difficult vocabulary and strategy to read quickly and efficiently through passages. I'm glad she was able to help me based on my needs. This was the right choice for me. I hope to get into an Ivy!

The company's affable staff, flexible tutoring schedule and personalized tutoring have made my GRE studying experience easy and enjoyable. I am confident that because of my tutoring I will do very well on my exam.

Hi my name is Sarah and I was struggling with decimals. My mom set me up with a tutor through Tutor the People. During our meeting, we saw what I needed to work on. Our first session was awesome. And by the end of the month I was way better at decimals. And by the end of 2 months I was super good at it. I love this website so much. And if I ever have any trouble I will definitely go to this website.
Sarah S. Elementary Math
I never thought I would be able to achieve a 12 on the Physical Sciences, and if I had only done a group class, I never would have. All of my friends are extremely impressed because I am the one who went with the tutor and self-discipline study method, and so far, I have scored the highest on the MCAT. With a good tutor like Ben from Tutor the People and the drive to succeed, achieving your goal is most definitely possible.
