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.
Individualized Study Plan and Materials
We provide a Free AAMC® materials with every tutoring package so you and your tutor can create a MCAT tutoring study plan for your following meetings. Meetings will be tailored based on your MCAT performance and the foundation of your existing knowledge. Already satisfied with your study materials? Perfect. Our tutors have your materials too. If you need advice on which materials to use, just ask your MCAT tutor or your medical student advisor that offers free prep and application advice with each package.
Medical School and Opportunities in San Jose
San Jose, a large city surrounded by rolling hills in Silicon Valley, has some renowned medical schools. Among them, Stanford Medicine is the best for its research opportunities along with its health care and education. If you’re seeking to take part in various research in medical science, then Stanford Medicine is the ideal place for you. Since the beginning of the university, a lot of remarkable innovation was made by the students of SM. The Stanford Student Guidance Program (SGP) helps you to get admission in this university in a supportive, affirming, individualized and comprehensive manner through positive coaching and guidance.

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 San Jose MCAT tutors help students no matter what page they are on. Maybe a premed is a stellar student, but never fully understood the role of amino acids in high school chemistry. Working with an 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 develop a carefully curated study schedule around the student’s strengths and areas of weakness.
