    I definitely recommend Tim as a tutor! He not only simplifies concepts but he makes sure you understand the material thoroughly. He also helped me to be more confident in my test taking skills. He takes the time to create an individualized study plan and makes studying more fun. It was one month until my MCAT but with Tim’s help, I was able to increase my score by 8 points!

    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.

  • Adrianna

    Adrianna

    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!

  • Emory

    Emory

    Marie has been a supportive and extremely helpful tutor for me. She is able to answer any questions I have in a comprehensive way. Marie has become my most trusted resource when it comes to studying. While studying for the MCAT, I am constantly checking with Marie for clarification and advice and am graced with further insight on the topics as well as positive moral support throughout the process. She provided me with "steps to success" that included timing of studying, resources for practice exams and the most effective topics to focus on. I think Marie makes for an amazing MCAT tutor who can help others reach the best score possible.

  • Elka

    Elka

    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!

Frequently Asked Questions

How is the MCAT Self Prep Elite Tutoring Program different from other MCAT tutoring services?

MCAT Self Prep offers the best prep for the best price:

Best Prep: MCAT 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 100th percentile. We also require each of our tutors to obtain 5 testimonials from past students before they can even begin working for us. Most importantly, our Elite Tutors all earned their top scores using the MCAT Self Prep Program, so they know our recipe for success. Because we are so confident that you will have the best experience, we stand behind our Money Back Guarantee.

Best Price: Our prices cannot be beat. We are so confident that you won’t find a lower price that we have a Lowest Price Guarantee. If you can find a tutoring package with a lower price, we will match it! While most MCAT prep packages out there cost thousands upon thousands of dollars, we are committed to giving you the best possible price with tutoring sessions starting at just $49.99 each!

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 that will help 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:

Meticulous Preparation. Before the session even starts, your tutor will look through your Study Portal as they prepare an individualized lesson plan.

Pivotal Adjustments. At the beginning of each half-an-hour session, your Elite Tutor will examine your progress and help you adjust your study plan using the Study Plan Spreadsheet.

Individualized Training. Your Elite Tutor will spend the bulk of the session focused on teaching you the strategies and content that address your exact needs.

I need help with the CARS section. Can an Elite 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, research has shown that the very best way to improve one’s reading comprehension abilities is through one-on-one tutoring.

If you really struggle with CARS, we’d highly recommend our Ultimate CARS Strategy Course. This course includes 10 Virtual Video Sessions with Head Tutor Andrew (a $3,749.90 value) in which he will walk you through key research-based reading strategies that have helped many of his students improve their CARS scores by 40 points. Bundling this course with Elite Tutoring as part of a CARS Course PLUS Plan will save you close to 10-percent on your tutoring purchase. Click here to learn more about this popular package.

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. To use PayPal Credit, first apply for PayPal Credit, then instead of selecting “Proceed to Checkout” when making your purchase, simply click on the button that says, “PayPal Credit.” Click here for more information and FAQs on this payment option.

Note: If you are a completely new user to PayPal, you will need to follow this detailed guide for making your first purchase using PayPal Credit.

How do I start meeting with a tutor?

To start meeting with your tutor, simply choose the tutoring package that meets your needs, add it to your cart, and complete the checkout process. Afterwards, you will receive an immediate confirmation email with detailed instructions for getting started.

You can immediately start our Create-your-own Study Plan Course, which will walk you through developing a rough draft study plan using the Study Plan Spreadsheet. You will also gain access to your Study Portal in which you can start adding topics/questions for your tutor.

After assessing your needs, we will quickly match you to a qualified Elite Tutor. Upon assignment, they will promptly reach out and share their calendar with you, so that you can schedule your first meeting.

Can I try before I buy? Is there any sort of Money Back Guarantee?

All of our tutoring packages are covered by our Money Back Guarantee, which promises your money back for all remaining sessions if you are at all dissatisfied before your third session. Additionally, if you are dissatisfied with your Elite Tutor at any point, you can always request to work with another Elite Tutor. Your satisfaction is our top priority.

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! Students love having this flexibility.

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 packages/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. 🙂

I am a low-income student and am worried about being able to afford private tutoring. Will I be able to afford this?

Our mission is to make 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. Some students may need more help than our free course offers, but still don’t have the money to afford private MCAT tutoring. If you are worried about paying for a private tutoring package due to dire financial circumstances, we will do everything we can to work out an option that works for you. Please keep in mind the following:

MCAT Self Prep offers the best price around: Kaplan charges $266 an hour to work with a tutor that barely scored in the 90th percentile. All our tutors scored above the 97th percentile and sessions start at just $49.99!

PayPal Credit makes it possible for you to spread out your payment over time: 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 and only takes a few seconds.

We care: If you are in true financial need, please contact us, and we will figure out something that will work for you. We are committed to making a high MCAT score possible for everyone no matter their financial situation.

Is there any way to meet in person with my tutor?

All 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 you and your Elite Tutor allows your tutor to prepare and input 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!

What if I don’t use up all of my sessions?

If you don’t end up using all of your tutoring sessions before taking the MCAT, we’d recommend using them for application guidance, essay editing, and interview practice. Your sessions will never expire and can be used anyway you’d like.

What if I end up needing more sessions?

When you purchase a tutoring package, we provide you with an automatic discount that allows you to purchase Single Tutoring Sessions for the same price per session as the original tutoring package that you purchase. For instance, if you purchase the Deluxe Tutoring Package with an Elite Tutor at $49.99 per session and you end up needing a few more sessions, you can purchase those one at a time at $49.99 per session.

When do I need to pay for the program?

You will need to purchase your desired tutoring package before your first session. If you are unable to make the full payment upfront, feel free to take advantage of our financing options available through PayPal Credit.

What materials will I receive as part of this tutoring program?

As part of your tutoring package order, you will receive immediate and free access to all of the following:

  • Our MCAT Video Collection, which covers ALL the MCAT topics as listed by the AAMC.
  • All ten of our online content modules (Biology I, Physics II, etc) as well as MCAT Bootcamp with customization.
  • Create-your-own Study Plan Course, which includes our Create-your-own Study Plan Spreadsheet, Study Portal, and Score Tracker.
