At Med School Tutors, our uniquely individualized and personal service goes above and beyond helping our students to grow and excel — in addition to achieving their best medical exam scores. What's more, as an MST tutor, you are part of a team that's dedicated to bringing that personalized experience to you.
As a tutor, you serve as a teacher, advisor and mentor to your students, and you also have access to a team that's committed to helping you strengthen your teaching and coaching skills while fostering your growth and advancement, professionally and personally. That team includes your dedicated tutor mentor, our Student Relations Team that handles all the administrative work and helps support your students, our extensive network of doctors and more!
Our Tutor Development Team is a part of the leadership within MST. The TDT provides mentoring, support, training, and plays a crucial role in the development of education, content, initiatives and more at MST. The TDT is comprised of seasoned tutors and accomplished doctors who are dedicated to our tutors' success — at MST and beyond.
Our mentor support system is unique and has proven to be extremely valuable, especially early on in a tutor’s career. Every tutor is matched with a mentor — if available, a mentor in their field of interest — during the training process. Your mentor will train you on the fundamentals, our proven methods and best practices, and will be there to provide you with support and feedback as you work toward independence and advancement.
Meet the doctors on our Tutor Development Team:
As you continue to tutor with us and build more experience, you’re not going to be the same tutor as you were when you began with MST.
Our performance reviews (PRs) are designed to provide you with a clear path for growth along with financial incentives and performance-based rewards. We'll conduct your PRs at key points in your growth so we can evaluate your (and our!) work, and help ensure that you are on the path for success by upholding the quality of tutoring and support that is synonymous with the MST name.
What's more, our tutors have many opportunities to be involved in other initiatives from blog writing to content development to advisement. Whether you just tutor or help us develop a whole new educational system, we'll work to ensure the experience you’ll gain here will be worth adding to your credentials and jazzing up your CV.
The connections you make here start with the students you help, serving as their coach and mentor throughout the most difficult exams of their lives. It is our hope that you will also benefit from the relationships you'll forge with your mentor, the office staff and with your peers — and from our aim at encapsulating a very holistic approach to medical education and business.
In your work with us, you will also quickly see that MST tutors are truly an unusual group: in addition to earning top scores, we've taken on leadership roles, pursued additional degrees, advanced medical education, published extensively, earned honors, awards, and accolades... and we often have unique considerations in approaching the residency application process. As such, our Matched @ MST network helps us connect our tutors with other high achievers in the field, residency or fellowship they're pursuing to help get that extra edge.
Lastly, if you are in New York, join us for a happy hour and meet fellow medical peers and staff. And as you get involved, you may just make friends in the process!
“Working at MST has been a wonderful experience. The staff are incredibly kind and amazingly helpful. It is very easy to get set up with as many students as you can handle and working with students to help them achieve their goals is extremely satisfying. There is also a great multitude of other talented tutors instantly at your disposal to reach out to for advice on tutoring or career aspirations."
“My past 6 months tutoring with MST have been nothing short of extraordinary. I was well trained, received unconditional support from tutor mentors and office staff, and have been continually encouraged and recognized for my hard efforts. It is a position where I can look forward to continual improvement and growth, ideals that I feel align with the mission of MST. The front office staff make every student introduction incredibly comfortable, a testament to all of their behind the scenes work getting to know the students as well as the tutors. I am excited to be part of such a unique and growing company.”
“Working at MST has been a wonderful experience across the board. It has kept my medical knowledge fresh during my doctoral research and helped me improve both my time management and communication skills. As someone with only informal teaching experience prior to starting at MST, the tutor mentorship program has helped me grow into an excellent teacher by providing a perfect balance of guidance to help me build and refine my skills with the freedom to explore what works best for my individual students. With the support from MST, I always feel confident in my ability to help my students reach their academic goals. Being a part of the MST team has made tutoring one of the most rewarding and enjoyable experiences of my medical education thus far.”
“I have worked for MST for 3 years now; starting from my 4th year of medical school and now into the heart of residency and it has been an extremely rewarding experience. During my 4th year of medical school it was a great way to stay sharp and earn some extra money with all the down time. While residency has been busy, I've found a few hours of tutoring every week keeps me sharp on my pathophys and uptodate on latest medicines and recommendations in medicine. The most rewarding aspect I did not anticipate were the tremendous vertical relationships I've built with students from Step 1->Shelves->Step 2 and Residency Consulting. It has prepared me to be a mentor to other young physicians in the future and has made me a better or more great full mentee myself."
Big brains and bigger hearts working in different capacities, but toward this singular goal: transforming medical education. Whether you're tutoring a student from your kitchen table or answering a call in our New York office, you (brain, heart, and all other essential organs) are helping people achieve their dreams.
