We'll Help you achieve your goals
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.
Free Introductory Hour
Not sure if you actually need a tutor? We include a Free Introductory Hour with all of our packages. You can expand all of our MCAT study packages at the same discounted package rate, and all unused hours are refundable.
Individualized Study Plan and Materials
We provide a free copy of our book, MCAT Math: Strategies and Practice Problems, as well as free AAMC® materials with every MCAT tutoring package so you and your tutor can create an MCAT study plan for your following meetings.
