Science Passage Reading Strategy Course
This Course Tackles the MCAT from Both Sides
This course will teach you 10 key science passage reading strategies. Each strategy is proven to improve your reading abilities and is taught thoroughly in a research-based manner that includes written instruction, video walkthroughs of actual MCAT passages, and detailed homework assignments.
This course focuses on the most important MCAT content — the content that will earn you points on the research-based science sections. With this aim, we’ve put together video playlists that teach all 100+ research techniques that you must know in order to succeed on test day.
A Research-based Approach
Everything I teach in this course is based on the most up-to-date research on how to become a Good Reader, which suggests that you can become a Good Reader through learning comprehension strategies. Research shows that the best way to learn these strategies is through the following:
Each of the 10 Strategy Modules in this course includes a typed explanation of the comprehension strategy, in which I teach you what the strategy is, why it is important, and when you should use it.
After the written description of the strategy, you will find a 30-60 minute video in which I apply the comprehension strategy to an actual CARS passage. You will see how I use it in the proper context, allowing you to truly gain an understanding for the what, how, when, and why of the strategy. You will see that specific reading comprehension strategies can make something that is very confusing become completely understandable. Due to my current demand for private tutoring, live sessions with me cost hundreds of dollars, but you can have access to ten of these Virtual Video Sessions for the price of one as part of this course.
Guided Practice and Application
As part of each Strategy Module, I will assign you homework that will help you apply the strategy until it becomes second-nature. While many students waste their precious CARS study time on poorly-written non-AAMC CARS questions, I’ll show you how to gain access to over 1,000 free CARS passages and center your studying around reading those. Doing these homework assignments will give you the opportunity to apply the comprehension strategies until they become second-nature, transforming you into a Good Reader. There are three types of homework assignments:
- Personal Practice
- Study Buddy Sessions
- Private Tutoring Sessions

“Andrew was a great mentor in assisting me throughout my MCAT preparation journey. His program has everything laid out for you, with modules covering the must-knows as well as guided instructions on how to utilize the Section banks to make practice exams best. Furthermore, he has a very welcoming personality, and was very good with explaining concepts or certain things I did not fully grasp/understand. Overall, my score improved to a 516, and with Andrew’s extra tips, I was able to go into the test with confidence. Overall, I highly recommend any MCAT student to go about studying with Andrew’s course and assistance.”
“Andrew walked me through passages in a very clear manner, dumbing down convoluted passages into easily-digestible, bite-sized pieces. On test day my mind wavered due to nervousness, but the principles he taught me grounded me, and I felt successful at the end of the test, achieving a 513 overall!“
“Before meeting Andrew, I spent an entire summer studying on a daily basis following Kaplan’s approach only to end up with the same score on my MCAT as I had on my diagnostic. As soon as I started working with Andrew, I saw my score increase. Andrew’s approach to studying has been the most beneficial, in my opinion. He has helped me focus my attention on the areas that I can improve in, showed me what resources I should be using, and provided tips that I can use to tackle some of my biggest weaknesses. Andrew also shares his own exam techniques, such as how to approach each type of passage which is really helpful. He is also extremely charismatic and optimistic, which I feel every student studying for the MCAT needs. He was always there to reassure me and adjust my study plan according to my current scores. Through Andrew’s program, I was able to boost my original score of a 508 to a 521 on my final AAMC practice exam. I would definitely recommend MCAT Self Prep and Andrew to any friend!”
“Unlike past prep companies and tutors I have had, Andrew really understands what it takes to do well on this test. He will not feed you bogus strategies, and he really understands how to make the best use of your time while studying.”
“My biggest problem on MCAT science passages was sifting through the complex experiments, abbreviations, and other scientific jargon that I was unfamiliar with prior to reading the passage. Andrew’s Science Reading Strategy Course really simplified this process and helped me break down passages into manageable material. It is so easy to be overwhelmed with these passages, but through this course I learned to slow down and focus on the important information. Andrew’s breakdown of specific difficult passages also provided a realistic and applicable example of how I can process these passages in review. This course is definitely a big help to anyone who struggles with science passages! Using MCAT Self Prep and Andrew as a tutor, I was able to improve from a 496 on my initial diagnostic to a 514 on test day!“
“The Science Passage Reading Strategy Course is the best strategy course I’ve encountered. It provides the only prospective I want to spend my time on. Andrew describes his strategies on exam day, and he walks you through many passages, showing you his step-by-step process. Science passages are the most difficult for me, but after learning his strategies, much simpler.“
