Results That Speak For Themselves
David and Madison Scored in the 100th Percentile using our Tutoring Program
Andrew gave me down-to-earth, practical advice. He told me very honestly about his process studying for the MCAT. Andrew helped me set up a basic study plan, and I stuck to it in the following months. It took discipline, but when I finally got my scores back I was excited to see I had scored in the 100th percentile. In short, I’m a big supporter of MCAT Self Prep!
Working with Andrew has been one of the most important parts of my MCAT preparation. He has done an amazing job of guiding me to resources, helping me plan and organize my studies, and focus on the most important aspects. Andrew has been so positive and enthusiastic, and I would definitely recommend him as a tutor.
Best Prep, Best PriceMCAT Self Prep only hires tutors that scored in the 97th percentile or higher on the new MCAT with most of our tutors having scores in the 99th+ percentile.

Next Step charges $14,999 for a 28-session package ($469 per session) with one of their head tutors, but meeting with our head tutor starts at just $149 per session! We are so confident you won't find a better price that we stand behind our Lowest Price Guarantee.
Why MCAT Self Prep?
Every one of our tutors scored between the 97th and 100th percentile on the MCAT. They each have several years of teaching experience. And each of them have experience as professional practice question writers and reviewers for the MCAT.
Our tutors have led several students to achieve 100th percentile MCAT scores. The large majority of students who started studying with our tutors six months before their test date have scored above the 97th percentile. And every single student that has used our tutoring program has seen improvements.
Every single session taught by our tutors is handcrafted to meet the personal needs of each student. Our tutors spend 30 minutes preparing for every single lesson so that they can help their students overcome the weaknesses that are keeping them from achieving a top score.
Kaplan charges $3999 for 15 sessions of tutoring. That’s $266 per session! All this just to tutor with someone who may have barely achieved the 90th percentile. In contrast, our sessions start at just $49.99 and all of our tutors scored between the 97th and 100th percentile.

"I would highly recommend Andrew over ANY prep course – you will get personalized assistance and someone that really wants to see you do your best!"
"If anyone is planning on taking the MCAT, I recommend using MCAT Self Prep; it has awesome resources and tutors who go above and beyond for you."
A couple months before my MCAT test date, I was continually scoring between a 505 and a 508 on practice tests even though I felt like I was spending a lot of time studying. I realized that I needed help structuring and prioritizing my studying, and luckily I came across MCAT Self Prep and Andrew’s tutoring. Within the first 10 minutes of our first session, Andrew restructured my study plan and gave me tangible tips for how to maximize my productivity. He was also very honest with me about the hard work it would take to improve my score, which was helpful. Our tutoring sessions were always extremely efficient due to Andrew’s preparation, and his ability to clarify large misconceptions about the material was really impactful. With his help and the MCAT Self Prep resources, I brought my score up to a 521 (99th percentile) on my final AAMC practice exam within a month and a half!
My name is Jalia and I am a previous tutee of Ming-Yeah. Ming-Yeah is an exceptional tutor with a lot to offer. Ming-Yeah was able to break down science concepts that I initially could not grasp, and she did so in such an enjoyable fashion. She never got frustrated when I did not understand, rather she was able to manipulate the concepts to make them easier and more understandable. Compared to tutors that I have had in the past for other science classes such as chemistry and biology, Ming-Yeah has been the most successful in helping me gain long-term knowledge of all the information. It is without question that I would recommend anyone trying to do great on their MCAT to utilize Ming-Yeah as their tutor.
Garrett was a huge help during my MCAT preparations, between him and the MCAT Self Prep website I felt confident on Test Day that I had reviewed everything and that I had a clear understanding of the topics. Whenever I had any questions Garrett was super helpful by explaining the answers in a comprehensive way, (with diagrams when possible). Garrett was super flexible with our meetings and it was always super convenient to meet with him online. It was also a huge help that he would ask me questions after we reviewed a topic, because it allowed both of us to check my understanding, and then further review the material if necessary. Over the 5 weeks that I was intensely studying for the MCAT my score increased from 500 to ~512 on my last practice exams. Garrett's explanations and strategy tips really helped me make this score jump! I am so glad I found him and the MCAT Self Prep Website!
Tim was an exceptional tutor and the best I've had up to this point. He goes above and beyond to make sure he is available around my hectic schedule and he was always prepared. He explained concepts in multiple different ways to solidify understanding and account for the different learning styles of various students. He isn't afraid to admit when he is unsure about something and will even follow up with an answer after researching it. Tim is both funny and personable, yet very knowledgeable and patient, which makes him a great tutor for anyone who has the privilege of working with him.
I would recommend Zachary Reinstein as an MCAT tutor to anyone. While he has a depth of knowledge far beyond average for the undergraduate level, he is patient and good at making the complicated approachable and understandable. As my tutor and mentor he was constantly asking me follow-up questions to help me make connection to concepts that I already knew. Zachary is fun to talk to, patient, and approachable without compromising skill and knowledge.
David is everything you could want in a tutor. He is knowledgeable, patient and punctual. His patience and the calming tone of his voice really help students to not feel stupid or embarrassed whenever they don't understand something. He isn't afraid to admit when he doesn't know something, but unlike most people, he will actually get back to you with an answer. Furthermore, he is extremely flexible. No matter what he has going on in his life, he is always willing to take the time to help out. You won't be able to find a better tutor.

Best Prep: MCAT Self Prep only hires tutors that scored in the 95th percentile or higher on the new MCAT with most of our tutors having scores in the 100th percentile. While many prep companies are willing to hire anyone who did somewhat decent on the exam, MCAT Self Prep holds to its high standard of excellence. And unlike other tutoring companies, you can view each of our elite tutors’ bios in which you can view testimonials from their past and current students. Because we are so confident that you will have the best experience, we stand behind our Money Back Guarantee.

What is a Typical Tutoring Session Like?
Unlike other tutoring services, the MCAT Self Prep tutoring service is focused on providing you with 100-percent individualized tutoring focused on helping you overcome your weaknesses to achieve a top MCAT score. Our tutors never reuse lesson plans, and will focus all of their attention on your unique needs. In order to accomplish this, your tutor will provide you with the following for each tutoring session:
30-minutes offline expertise: During this time, your tutor will look over the questions in your study portal (a Google Doc shared between you and your tutor) and input explanations, photos, articles, and even videos. This way, you won’t need to take notes during the session, and will have countless references to study from after the session.
30-minutes online expertise: During this time, you and your tutor will meet via video call in order to discuss and adjust your study plan, help you understand the questions you input into the study portal, and teach you the key strategies you need to boost your MCAT score.

I need help with the CARS section. Can your tutor help me with that?
All of our tutors are qualified to tutor for every section of the MCAT, including the CARS section. In fact, MCAT Self Prep’s elite tutoring team has experience professionally writing CARS practice problems for Testing Solutions, and all of our tutors scored above the 95th percentile on the CARS section. For this reason, our elite tutors understand the CARS section inside and out, and can help you develop the skills and confidence you need to tackle this challenging section.
How often will I meet with my tutor? How does scheduling a session work?
The great thing about our program is that it offers you the flexibility to study at your own pace and on your own schedule. You do not need to meet with your tutor at the same time every week for a set number of weeks. After each session, you will be able to choose any available tutoring slot from your tutor’s online calendar, whether that slot is two months from now or two days from now. You choose the time that works for you! This gives you extreme flexibility.
Is there any way to meet in person with my tutor?
Most of our tutoring sessions are conducted online, and our students find this to be just as effective, if not more effective, than meeting in person. The online study-portal shared between the tutor and the student allows your tutor to prepare detailed explanations to all of your questions. You can continue to access and refer back to these detailed explanations after your tutoring session is over. Also, the online, interactive white board allows both the tutor and the student to draw out their thoughts when necessary. Last of all, students really enjoy the fact that they can visit with their tutor without having to ever leave their apartment!
Some of our tutors are available for in-person tutoring, however, and you may discuss the details of this with your tutor. None of our tutors are required to meet in person with their students and even if you are currently meeting in person with your tutor, you are not guaranteed to receive all of your tutoring sessions in person. Our tutors are often applying to medical schools or currently attending medical school and may need to relocate or travel at any given time.
How do I start meeting with a tutor?
To start meeting with your tutor, simply choose your desired tutoring package below and submit your secure online payment. Upon receipt of your payment, we will send you a link to your tutor’s calendar and you will be able to schedule your first session immediately.
What materials will I receive as part of this tutoring program?
The MCAT Self Prep tutoring program is not a prep course, but rather a premier private tutoring program that supports students in their unique situation. For this reason, you will not receive any prep books, practice problems, or materials when you sign up for a tutoring package.
Can I try before I buy? Is there any sort of Money Back Guarantee?
There are two ways for you to experience the MCAT Self Prep tutoring program without making a full commitment to a larger tutoring package:
Free 10-minute Phone Consultation: You will be allowed to have a free 10-minute phone consultation with one of our elite tutors. During this time you can ask any and all questions you have regarding the tutoring program. After gaining an understanding of your unique needs and situation, your tutor will be able to help you know how the tutoring program will work for you and tell you how they will help you achieve a top MCAT score.
Our Money-Back Guarantee: Our tutoring packages are covered by our Money Back Guarantee.
Do you offer a Higher Score Guarantee?
Higher score guarantees from other test prep companies simply promise to let you retake the course if you fail to achieve the score you were hoping for. Because our pro plans never expire, we do not need to offer such a guarantee. We guarantee to offer you access for as long as you need it no matter when you take the MCAT. No fine print here. 🙂
Can I defer my payment or pay in increments over time?
Yes! Using PayPal Credit, you can postpone your payment for up to 6 months without paying any interest, and you can even spread out monthly payments over a period of up to three years! Getting approved is extremely easy (if you have a credit card or some sort of credit history) and only takes a few seconds.

Here at MCAT Self Prep, we believe in making MCAT Prep affordable for all students. This is why we’ve created our free MCAT Prep Course, the only free MCAT prep course of its kind.
