Success Stories
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!

522, 99th %
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.

522, 99th Percentile
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.
Stasha O. MCAT
37, 98th Percentile
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!

36 MCAT Score, 97th Percentile
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!

    Our Tutors are Superhuman

    Sometime 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 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.

Medical Schools and Opportunities in Honolulu

Despite being America’s Wettest City and Orchid Capital, Honolulu is also popular for its renowned medical schools and opportunities. There are some noteworthy institutions where students can study the pre-medical sciences in order to enhance their chances to get admitted into America’s top medical universities.

The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, Honolulu is one of the best schools in the area for pre-med students. Their Pre-Health/Pre-Law Advising Center is furnished with helpful staff who can guide students as to how to tailor their undergraduate studies in order to fulfill the requirements for medical school. Not only that, they also provide a complete guideline to create your MCAT study plan and timeline.

Hawaii Pacific University is another great institution that provides the Post-baccalaureate certificate in pre-medical/pre-health studies. You’ll be glad to know that Hawaii Pacific University is the only university in all of greater Hawaii that provides a post-baccalaureate certificate in the pre-medical/pre-health studies sciences. The certificate program of HPU is a good way for an applicant to become more competitive and increase their chances when preparing for a new career in a medical or health profession. HPU also aims to train its students to achieve top scores in the qualifying examinations (MCAT, DAT, OAT, GRE, etc.). In addition to that, HPU offers pre-med students the opportunity to take part in undergraduate Biomedical Research. The research is hands-on and can be beneficial for forming your medical school application.

We specialize in taking an individualized approach with every student. MCAT tutors create a unique study plan for each student, one that is tailored to the student’s strengths and areas of improvement. In addition, we provide free AAMC® MCAT prep materials to every student.

After we learn about each student and their experience with the exam, our team then matches you with the best Honolulu MCAT tutor who matches your availability and your specific MCAT needs.

We also offer small group MCAT tutoring. The groups are formed on an as-needed basis, so whether you are an individual looking to form a group or a group of friends/classmates who want to save some money on MCAT prep, just contact us to form an MCAT study group. Group MCAT tutoring is offered both online and in-person.

Just starting your MCAT prep? Here’s some information about the MCAT® Test:

The Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) is a computer-based standardized test that Admissions Committees use as a tool to determine your future medical school success. The exam is designed to assess problem solving skills, critical thinking, and knowledge of scientific concepts and principles.

The Total Score
  • Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems
    118 to 132, Center at 125
  • Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems
    118 to 132, Center at 125
  • Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills
    118 to 132, Center at 125
  • Psychological, Social and Biological Foundations of Behavior
    118 to 132, Center at 125
Each of the 4 section scores sum up to the total score. The MCAT median score is 500, and the total MCAT score ranges from 472-528.

It is no doubt that students benefit from a customized, one on one approach to learning. When studying for a test as difficult as the MCAT, the one on one approach is especially crucial. Students who approach their prep in a more traditional, classroom setting, often obtain a general understanding of the content covered on the exam but are deprived of the focus needed to delve into the complex areas of the material. Because the MCAT is tested on such specific concepts piled on top of fundamental areas in science, it is crucial that students grasp the full basis of each science, before learning the intricacies that build upon them.

Our Honolulu MCAT tutors can help students no matter what page they are on in their studies. Maybe the premed is a stellar student, but never fully understood the role of the Krebs Cycle. Working with a Honolulu MCAT tutor one on one, the pre med and the tutor can diagnose exactly in which areas of the exam the student is struggling most, then create a carefully curated study schedule around the student’s strengths and areas of weakness.
