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!

5 stars are not enough to rate Tutor the People. They go beyond what most MCAT prep courses offer. I highly recommend them for MCAT and medical school preparations. Not only did they help me score 15 points higher on my MCAT, but also helped me during the medical school application process. Very thankful for this great program!! :)
Ingrid B. MCAT
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.

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.

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 Approach

Step 1

We understand that facing the med school application process can be intimidating. Between choosing the right undergrad programs, finding extracurriculars, prepping for the MCAT and CASPer, and writing out all of your applications, it can be exhausting. That’s where our team of experts come in. It’s common to experience essay fatigue or be unsure about how best to present yourself to potential schools, which is why our first step is to sit down with each student and learn about you, your educational background, and your goals. This way we can help you see the achievements that will help you stand out as well as help you determine the best way to move forward during this chaotic time.

Step 2

Next, we’ll work with you to create a strategy. Whether you’re an undergrad student who wants to get a head start, a soon-to-be graduate who has questions about gap years, or a non-traditional student, our experts will work with you to figure out your best options. Once we’ve learned about your goals and academic history, we can create a customized strategy designed to match your academic timeline and make a good impression on your applications.

We specialize in taking an individualized approach to medical school application advising with every student. Although admissions boards expect to see certain activities or accomplishments on every application, each student is unique.

Just starting your medical school applications? Here’s some information about the process:

Medical schools will expect applicants to have taken the basic sciences and scored well in the courses. Most medical schools will expect high grades in biology, chemistry, physics, and other courses. Schools also expect applicants to have relevant work, shadowing, or volunteering experience within the medical field. The majority of medical schools in the United States will accept applications through the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS). Applicants must submit their primary applications once on AMCAS.
