Our Tutors are Superhuman
Some time ago MCAT tutoring became a product, with huge companies focused on meager average score increases. One medical student was unsatisfied with the status quo and co-founded Tutor the People with the goal of personalizing MCAT test prep based on the needs of the individual student, not the needs of a focus group. We hire tutors who not only received top scores on the MCAT, but also have a passion and skill for teaching their students how to recreate their success on test day.
We include a Free Introductory Hour with enrollment in any of our MCAT study packages. Dissatisfied after the first lesson? You can receive a full 100% refund with our Money-Back Guarantee. Additionally, any unused hours in your package are refundable at any time throughout your prep.
A Team of Experts Dedicated to Your Success
With every MCAT tutoring package you not only receive a top-percentile scoring MCAT tutor who creates a customized study plan tailored to your needs, but an MD medical school admissions advisor who can help you with your application timeline and essays, and a personal academic strategist who is there to support you every step of the way.
