After this step is complete we apply an individualized approach to the section, allowing our students to meet with your tutor one hour free of charge to formulate a strategy that will asses and improve areas of weakness. By working with our MCAT tutoring service, our tutors can work with you to explain the different types of question stems and answer choices typically associated with these passages to decode what the question is asking and how to arrive at the correct answer.
After formulating a personalized strategy, we start our students on a rigorous reading regimen that has passages similar to that of the MCAT to increase reading speed and accuracy, while assigning practice passages to implement the strategy.
