USMLE Step 1-Style Question Breakdown Webinar ~ Powered by TrueLearn

We have been running a USMLE-style question breakdown webinar series this summer, and were getting requests to bring back another installment this month.

Hosted by our exceptional USMLE tutors, Drs. Fred Bertino and Sana Majid, and TrueLearn's Director of Academic Success, Sherry Smith, this webinar focused on providing guidance and high-yield techniques for how to approach a brand-new set of USMLE Step 1-style questions and maximize your score.

We also answered attendees' questions during our live Q&A following the webinar, and that's all captured here:

Why I (Still) Tutor Med School Students
Dr. Tzvi Doron by Dr. Tzvi Doron on Nov 15, 2017 in Tutoring

Let’s be honest. When I first started tutoring for MST, my main reason for doing so was to make some money. During our medical education years, it is difficult to find ways of earning money that are both flexible and pay well for the time put in. I already had several years of experience tutoring math and chemistry at that point (neither of which I could probably do now), and I figured I’d leverage my board scores and tutoring experience to make some much needed extra money. That was in 2011, and since then I have finished residency and have been working as a primary care physician for two years. Why do I still do it? The days of money being the primary objective have long since passed. However, there are other benefits to tutoring that I have learned along the way that keep me in it, although admittedly in a much more limited way than when I started.
