The vast majority of our students begin tutoring 2-3 months or more in advance of their test dates. The sooner we start, the more you’ll get out of the tutoring and the higher you’ll be able to raise your score. If you’re not sure, feel free to get in touch so we can help you determine your best course of action.
Our short video below tells you everything you need to know about how we'll get started together! If you have general questions that are not answered here or want to schedule your complimentary phone consult, contact us or give us a call at 212-327-0098.
You should schedule your complimentary phone consult when you know you're ready to move forward; it's how we'll get to know you and match you with your tutor! If you’re uncertain, you can always give us a call at 212-327-0098 or contact us to discuss your preliminary questions and determine whether we will be the best fit for your needs..
Unfortunately, our offices are unequipped to make international calls. Students located outside of the United States have been able to reach us using Skype Call Credit or Google Voice. Simply call our office at 212.327.0098 at the date and time of your scheduled consult and our receptionist will connect you with the appropriate member of our Student Relations Team.
We welcome inquiries from you anytime and we will gladly provide information to you about our services for you to share with your student. That said, the complimentary phone consult must be conducted 1:1 with the student and a member of our Student Relations Team. Per our policies, our tutors cannot discuss a student’s circumstances with anyone other than the student. We appreciate your cooperation in advance. .
Diving into a good review course is like re-immersing yourself in your pre-clinical years of med school. There are set resources, a schedule to follow, and lectures to attend. Using a pre-set curriculum, a review course is designed to guide you through a comprehensive review of the high-yield material essential for your exam.
In working with one of our tutors, you will receive a highly-personalized study plan, tailored to your unique circumstances, learning style, timeline, and goals. Unlike a pre-set review course, your tutor will adapt your study plan according to your progress throughout your work together. In your 1:1 tutoring sessions, you and your tutor will identify and address your individual strengths and weaknesses.
When it comes to choosing between a review course or 1:1 tutoring, years of experience have shown us that if you're scoring ≤ 160s on your assessments, it's best to begin with a review course. (This is especially true if you've been away from the basic sciences for more than 2 years.)
