      "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."

  • MCAT Self Prep is simply the best MCAT resource available out there! If you are struggling with MCAT like I did, don't look any further because you have found the best resource available that is affordable, highly structured, and actually helpful. In the 4 months that I have been using it my score has improved by 18 points and I am not even done yet! I have taken the MCAT 3 times before using my own study plans and Kaplan's class and it did not go well for me. I found MCAT Self Prep randomly one day while looking for a structured MCAT study plan and I can't imagine what I would have done if I didn't find it that day. You can tell Andrew took his time to create this resource for FREE and it has revolutionized the way I study. Before I got bored easily and did not study as long, but now I am actually excited and look forward to what I will be studying that day. I also recommend upgrading your free account so you can get the most of out this resource, I highly recommend every memorization and strategy course that he has available depending on what you need. Private tutoring is also super helpful, I tutored with Garrett Bourne personally and he gave me some great tips that has helped me in my studying and practice tests.

  • I have truly felt that the MCAT Self Prep eCourse has been more valuable than the MCAT prep courses I have paid for. It is really effective at keeping me organized and gives me a clear goal as to what I should accomplish before test day. I have already seen my score leap up 10 points in just 2 weeks, and I plan on it going up even more before I take the test at the end of March. I’m pretty thrilled about that. So thrilled, in fact, that I’ve recommended it to a friend, and now, he too, is using the eCourse to prepare for the MCAT.

  • To say I was overwhelmed when I first approached studying for the MCAT would be an understatement. I was unsure of how to begin and of my ability to prepare, considering that I did not have thousands to give to a major MCAT prep company. Fortunately, MCAT Self Prep was referred to me by a friend who found the site in her search for affordable MCAT prep materials. Andrew’s course is one of THE most amazing sites I have encountered for MCAT prep. The modules are well organized and I can easily incorporate them into a study schedule. I highly recommend MCAT Self Prep and will continue using its resources on my journey to a 528!

  • So much information...where do you start? This question overpowered my will to start studying for the MCAT for months, until I randomly found MCAT Self Prep on Google. Andrew took this Goliath of an exam and broke it down to simple modules. Finally, I had structure and from an individual who was a 99th percentile MCAT test taker! I am no longer wasting time thinking...Do I have to memorize this part or not? I now know that all my hours sitting down and studying are meaningful and not somewhat of a waste. Plus, Andrew answers emails very quickly as an extra bonus! All and all, I finally stopped looking at this exam as a monster and now I'm on my way to a great score!

  • Utilizing MCAT Self Prep was the best move I made in my preparation for the MCAT. I knew that I could not afford the courses that some of the larger, more well-known companies provided, but I desperately needed guidance along the way. Fortunately, I stumbled upon MCAT Self Prep and decided to stick with them the entire way. Not only did I save hundreds of dollars, but my score jumped from 498 on my diagnostic test all the way to 516 on the final practice test right before test day. I cannot give enough credit to their tutors who helped me discover the strategies that helped me most. If you are in the same boat that I was in and are not able to pay for some of the more well-known courses, don’t hesitate to give MCAT Self Prep a shot. You will not regret it.

  • When my parents told me we would not be able to afford one of the high-priced MCAT prep courses, I was very disappointed. I figured I would be missing out on achieving a great MCAT score without the materials they offered. Thankfully, my Dad came across this free prep course on YouTube. At first, I was skeptical because I did not think a free MCAT prep course would be comparable to the most popular ones. Looking back now, I had nothing to worry about. The MCAT Self Prep eCourse is organized to meet your exact MCAT needs. It guides you step by step from the beginning of your study journey to the end and provides you with what you need to be successful. The tutoring services are affordable and effective in helping you sharpen your MCAT skills. My tutor is encouraging, patient, and knowledgeable in MCAT concepts and strategies. And after each tutor session, I gain more and more confidence in my abilities. Surprisingly, instead of dreading test day I am excited to conquer the MCAT.

  • MCAT Self Prep is a great resource to use if you need a little extra motivation to start studying, have a busy schedule, and do not want to spend a lot of money. It was really easy to watch a couple videos and learn a lot during random breaks in my day and right before bed. The modules are also very organized, so I was always able to quickly find videos on specific topics I realized I needed extra help on when reviewing my practice exams. The free eCourse videos were essentially all I used in my content review, and allowed me to achieve a 99th percentile MCAT score!

  • I wanted to start studying for the MCAT back in September, but I didn’t want to spend thousands on a prep course. I decided to study on my own, but had no idea where to begin. That is, until I found the MCAT Self Prep eCourse. The only thing I don’t like about the prep course is that I didn’t find it sooner!

  • MCAT Self Prep has shown me the best way to begin studying for the MCAT without needing to pay for an expensive prep course. Before finding MCAT Self Prep, I had already ordered the new set of Kaplan books, but had no idea where to begin. The MCAT Self Prep eCourse broke down the material into manageable parts and paired my books with the appropriate Khan Academy videos. The flashcards reinforce everything I am learning, and the eCourse motivates me to study by offering points for daily studying. I have recommended MCAT Self Prep to everyone in my BS/MD program.

  • The Create Your Own Study Plan Course was extremely helpful to me at the beginning of my studying process. I was unsure of how much material I needed to cover, how much time I really had, and how quickly I needed to do all of it. This course is simple, but its benefit is huge! Definitely recommend going through this course to get a better understanding of how to tackle everything you'll need to cover before test day!

  • MCAT Self Prep not only helps you set high goals but also paves the way to reach them. The Create-your-own Study Plan Course taught me the importance of striving for a high score, how to achieve my goal, how to take effective notes and make note cards, and how to go over my practice exams. Honestly, I would highly recommend students to make a schedule with MCAT Self Prep to have both an organized study plan and an accountability system. With the Score Tracker, I was able to convert my AAMC practice problems into a scaled MCAT score, which is pretty much one the most useful tools since the percent of answers that I got correct on the practice problems were not at all correlated with the MCAT scale. This helped me see how exactly I was doing, whether I was improving, being at the same level, or getting worse. The graphs that displayed my progress also helped me see if I was headed in the right direction and helped me adjust my study plan accordingly. The Score Tracker is a MUST!

  • Andrew’s course is one of THE most amazing sites I have encountered for MCAT prep. The modules are well organized and I can easily incorporate them into a study schedule. Additionally, each lesson in the modules is accompanied by a set of practice questions through Quizlet. The practice questions are not simply term and definition, but rather they force you to interact with and apply the material you have learned, much like how the AAMC formats their own questions. The practice questions have really helped me to solidify the content I have learned so far. Compiling the questions on Quizlet is also great because this means they are accessible on the go. If I find myself with a free moment during the day, I can easily review a few practice questions - those little study sessions add up quickly over time! I highly recommend MCAT Self Prep and will continue using its resources on my journey to a 528!

  • I've been studying every day this month and saw an improvement from 501 on AAMC FL 1 2 weeks ago (125/125/125/126) to 509 on AAMC FL2 yesterday (128/125/128/128). I wanted to say that the Quizlet practice questions have been really helpful in making sure I have content down. I know a lot of the test is reasoning but the content felt necessary to raise my score to my goal. I am confident that this will help me on test day to not have too many never before seen concepts! I would highly recommend MCAT Self Prep, especially their Advanced Pro Plan, to anyone.

  • The Deluxe Pro Plan was a game-changer in my studying! A month and a half before the test, I was having a really hard time retaining the required content, even though I had spent several months studying, and my score was not improving from a 508. The Quizlet flashcards and the mastery courses provided the structured, targeted review that I needed in a concentrated period of time. The Amino Acid Mastery Course, Metabolic Pathways Mastery Course, and Most Commonly Missed Concepts Course in particular were exactly what I needed to boost my retention and understanding. The best part about these resources was how seamlessly they fit into the rest of my studying, especially since I didn't have much time before test day. I could study on my phone during breaks in my day, or do manageable, small chunks of high-yield studying from the courses during my set study time. No other test prep companies offered anything similar; I absolutely credit my score increase to a 521 on my last AAMC practice exam to these resources!

  • The Deluxe Pro Plan pushed my MCAT prep over the edge and gave me the last bits of content I needed to walk into my test day with confidence. The main content modules helped me to boost my practice exam scores from a 504 to a peak of 512, but I was still getting inconsistent results and had serious knowledge gaps. The Memorization and Strategy Courses from the Deluxe Pro Plan filled in the gaps, helping me learn the most important concepts quickly and achieve consistently high scores on my final practice exams. The 10 Most Commonly Missed Concepts course was extremely helpful for hammering home some key physics and biochemistry topics, and the Metabolic Pathways course also reinforced all of the biochemistry pathways I had learned in class but started to forget, and kept me sharp going into test day, allowing me to score a 521 (99th percentile)! And finally, the Medical School Application Course has done a great job of preparing me for my next steps towards becoming a medical student. I highly recommend the Deluxe Pro Plan to anyone who wants to achieve a top MCAT score.

  • 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! If you want an MCAT studying experience that is more fun and personalized, Timothy can help you reach your exam goals!

  • Ming-Yeah was an excellent tutor who helped me improve my score from a 502 to a 512 in just one month! I struggled with the chem/phys section, but Ming-Yeah took the time to work through passages with me and help me develop a successful strategy. Ming-Yeah’s patience and quick math strategies helped me improve 10 points in just five sessions!”

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Mike worked with Andrew as part of the Deluxe Pro PLUS Plan and made some fantastic improvements from his diagnostic and previous MCAT attempt: "I really enjoyed tutoring with Andrew - in just three sessions I went from feeling as if the MCAT controlled me to feeling in control while taking exams. 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! This score is an 11 point bump from my previous MCAT two years ago, and will position me to have a chance at a lot of the schools I was looking to apply at and I have even added some more to apply. I think Andrew's personality is perfect for tutoring - he is flexible, genuine, a great critical thinker, and tells you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear. I recommend anyone struggling with either critical thinking or content on the MCAT to tutor with Andrew, you will see real results!"

  • Working with Andrew one-on-one, Zachary was able to get his AAMC practice exam scores up to a 519 just before test day. On test day, Zach actually ended up scoring a 524 (100th percentile)! He is currently receiving attention from top medical schools such as Harvard for their MD/PhD programs, and has already received an official acceptance to one of his top-choice programs. Here’s what he has to say about his experience tutoring with Andrew: “Andrew provided an affordable option for the the exact MCAT tutoring I needed. He guided me in finding the best study resources, staying accountable, and answering my questions as they came up.

  • Rebecca decided to give studying with Andrew a try after her first attempt at the MCAT didn’t go as well as she had hoped. Working with Andrew, she was able to improve her score from a 507 to a 515 (93rd percentile)! She even scored in the 99th percentile on the Biology/Biochemistry section! And in her medical school applications, she received an early-season interview invitation from The Mayo Clinic and Harvard! Here is what she has to say regarding her experience: “Studying with Andrew for two months, my score improved by 8 points. He is really friendly and the structure of the tutoring is very efficient. What I like the most about his tutoring is that he knows what is relevant to the actual MCAT and what is not. He also shares his study techniques for each section, which work well! I strongly recommend to study with him if you want to study efficiently within a limited time!”

  • Phatima was looking for a tutor that would be able to help her with all the aspects of studying for the MCAT, especially the CARS section. Before working with Andrew she had taken the MCAT 3 times, scoring in the low 490’s each time. After working intensively with Andrew, she was able to score a 508 on her final AAMC practice exam! Hear what she had to say about the improvements she made after just a few tutoring sessions: “I have the pleasure of having Andrew as my tutor. Before using MCAT Self Prep, I was getting three or four questions wrong in each CARS passage that I read. After tutoring with Andrew I have seen a tremendous increase in my CARS portion and am now only getting one question wrong in each CARS passage. He gave me helpful tips on how to approach the CARS passage which differ from other tips that I had researched from other companies. He took the time and taught me how to read and summarize each passage. I am happy that I decided to use MCAT Self Prep to prepare me for the MCAT. Andrew is an amazing tutor. He answers my emails quickly and has sent me additional information when I was confused on a topic. Andrew is awesome and I am glad that he is my tutor.”

  • David did just a Single Tutoring Session with Andrew before he started studying for the MCAT in order to make a personalized and effective study plan. He followed the study plan diligently and ended up scoring a 524 (100th percentile) on test day! He is currently receiving attention from top medical schools such as Stanford and Harvard. He feels that his initial session with Andrew had a huge impact on his success: “When I first started thinking about taking the MCAT and applying to medical school, Andrew was the first person I talked to for advice. He was patient, friendly, and very willing to help. What I liked most was that Andrew gave me down-to-earth, practical advice. He told me very honestly about his process studying for the MCAT as well as which classes and practice materials he found the most helpful. Hearing Andrew’s experience helped me believe that I could also do well on the MCAT through my own study without having to pay thousands of dollars for a prep course. 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. So, I can now say with confidence that preparing on your own for the MCAT is not only possible, but preferable to spending so much money on other test prep companies. I can also say that I know Andrew’s desire to help is genuine. I could tell he wanted me to succeed and he cared about me as a person, not just a customer. In short, I’m a big supporter of MCAT Self Prep!” Click here to watch David reveal his MCAT score results!

  • Tutoring with Kaplan for an entire summer, Natalie was unable to increase her score at all from a 508. After working with Andrew, she was able to boost her score to a 521! Here is what she has to say about this experience: "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 guided me to the perfect mix of content and practice, which I feel has made all the difference. 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. I would definitely recommend MCAT Self Prep and Andrew to any friend!"

  • Vineet started studying with Andrew in the hopes of improving upon his previous MCAT score of a 502. He has been blown away by the rapid progress he has been able to make with Andrew, skyrocketing his score up to a 518 in just over a month-and-a-half! Here is what Vineet has to say about tutoring with Andrew: “Before meeting Andrew, I had taken the MCAT and scored a 502, nowhere near what I hoped to achieve. This summer I decided to study for the MCAT again, and luckily I landed on the MCAT Self Prep website. I knew I needed help and Andrew has been there every step of the way and is a tremendous aid to my studies. Andrew is clear and finds a way to explain questions and concepts in a simple, but effective manner. Every session with Andrew is super productive, and I feel that I learn so much. Already, I am seeing major improvements, scoring a 518 on my most recent AAMC practice exam. Without a doubt, I can say that Andrew has played a major part in my recent success, and I would recommend Andrew as a tutor to anyone who needs help improving their MCAT score!”

  • Garrett found tutoring sessions with Andrew to be a crucial aspect of his MCAT preparation. He was able to improve his scores to the point that he scored a 519 (97th percentile) on test day, surpassing his goal of a 515! Here is what he has to say about his experience tutoring with Andrew: “Andrew is an incredible tutor! I am extremely pleased with my MCAT prep experience due to the help he offered me. Personally, I found the most stressful thing about preparing for the MCAT was simply not knowing where to begin. I wasn’t sure the best way to make a plan or how I could most effectively track my progress. Andrew removed all of those worries for me. He set me on a path that required diligence and effort but left me feeling comfortable on test day. He is extremely personable and really cares about addressing your individual worries and concerns. I found that really helpful as it removed any doubts I had about the test and replaced them with confidence. I highly recommend Andrew to anyone looking to boost their scores on the MCAT!” Click here to watch Garrett open his MCAT score results!

  • Zahid found tutoring with Andrew to be extremely helpful in finding answers to many of his questions, allowing him to improve his score by almost 20 points! Here is what he had to say about this experience: "The biggest reason why I like working with Andrew over other tutors is that you get to put any question you may have into a google doc with him and before your session with him starts he'll already know your question, what you're having trouble with, and input helpful diagrams/resources to help you answer all your questions. Usually working with other tutors you have to ask your question, then the tutor has to read it, and then try to figure it out which can be time-consuming. Andrew's way of tutoring saves you time and I feel like it is the best way to learn because every session you will work on your weaknesses. I feel like I've learned a lot working with Andrew and was able to improve my score from a 495 on a Kaplan diagnostic to a 513 on my last AAMC full length before test day."

  • Despite living halfway across the world, Ali found working with Andrew to be extremely personal and flexible. Here is what he has to say regarding his experience: "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. He is also flexible in terms of meeting, and was able to rearrange things to make it easier on me. Overall, I highly recommend any MCAT student to go about studying with Andrew's course and assistance."

  • Jared came to Andrew to get help making a personalized study plan after his first attempt at taking the MCAT didn’t go as well as he’d hoped. Because Jared had already spent a hefty sum of money on a prep course while studying for the MCAT the first time around, he was looking for low-cost alternative that would promise him a higher score. He just needed someone to lay out a detailed, personalized study plan to give him the structure and direction he was lacking with the previous prep company. With Andrew, he was able to improve his MCAT score 10 points from a 495 to a 505! He recently shared his results with Andrew: “Hey Andrew, The MCAT went much better than I expected. My target score was 502/503 and I ended up scoring a 505. I earned the 91st percentile in Bio/Biochem, and I am very happy with my results. Thank you for your help!” Here is what he has to say about his tutoring session with Andrew: “Andrew was great. During our session, he gave me a study plan specific to me, that I really feel will get me the score I need. He is very easily accessible and does everything in his power to make sure the student is comfortable and confident. I highly recommend Andrew to anyone looking for a structured plan they can follow on their own.”

  • Jordan tutored with Andrew for just two months before taking the MCAT. He was specifically looking for help on the CARS section of the MCAT, and was able to improve his CARS score from a 124 to a 128 on test day. Hear what he has to say regarding the rest of his results: “Deciding to sign up for one-on-one tutoring with Andrew was the most valuable investment in my preparation for the MCAT. Not only was the tutoring very affordable, but Andrew spent a considerable amount of time getting to know how I think. He helped me develop strategies unique to my method of test taking, and my scores on practice passages skyrocketed. My score jumped from 498 on my diagnostic test all the way to 516 on the final practice test right before test day. Thanks to Andrew, I had a personalized game plan and the right help along the way that helped me achieve my MCAT goal!” He recently updated Andrew with regards to his medical school application process, saying, “My application process went well! I applied to the Medical University of South Carolina through an early decision program and got in, so I will be going there and I am extremely happy with that."

  • Mwape tutored with Andrew over the course of several months, and really enjoyed tutoring with Andrew. She recently texted Andrew to say, “I just wanted to let you know that I got accepted to medical school. And yes it was my top choice! Here’s what she said about her experience while working with Andrew: “This has been my first time using an online tutoring service and I am pleased with the experience. I was a bit nervous for my first session, but my tutor, Andrew, is very friendly and easy to talk to. Online tools such as the MCAT Self Prep Study Portal, video calls and the whiteboard make it seem like we are meeting in person. Instead of just jumping into my questions on the Study Portal, at the beginning of each tutor session Andrew asks me how my studying is going, making sure my preparation for the MCAT is line with my needs. Prior to my scheduled tutor session, my questions on the Study Portal have been answered often with links to supplemental information. This shows me that Andrew takes his time and may even go out of his way to help me understand concepts in the best way possible. I always leave a tutoring session knowing more and feeling confident!”

  • Through tutoring with Andrew, Julia was able to earn a 513 on test day with a 129 (95th percentile) in both the Chemimstry/Physics section and CARS. Here is what she had to say: “I unequivocally recommend Andrew as a tutor for the MCAT. His approach to the MCAT is exactly what you need to see consistent gains in your score. He focuses heavily on leveraging the AAMC materials to help you develop your approach to taking the MCAT as well as understanding how to integrate the content for the AAMC-style questions. This approach, coupled with his guidance on planning both my study schedule and my strategy for each of the sections, were a tremendous help as I prepared for the exam. On top of that, Andrew prepares clear tutoring sessions that really help solidify content with which I struggled the most. Andrew’s focus is not on helping you score better on a testing company’s version of the MCAT, but on the actual AAMC exam. As a result of his help and guidance, I’ve seen steady improvement in my ability to gain points on the AAMC style questions (particularly in the 3 science sections where I needed the most help in improving). All of these benefits coupled with Andrew’s supportive demeanor and responsiveness made him wonderful to work with!”

  • After tutoring with several other tutors, Kashif was about to give up on finding a tutor that could help him improve his CARS score. He had already taken the MCAT twice before and couldn’t seem to score above a 124. He recently got his score back and was happy to see that his CARS score improved and he was able to score a 510 overall! Here’s what he has to say regarding his experience with Andrew: “I’ve had sessions with Andrew and I can say that he has been a very helpful tutor. He comes prepared to teach certain concepts and adjusts them to meet the needs of the student. Moreover, his positive attitude is contagious and really helped to shape my confidence about the test. He is much different than the other tutors I’ve had in the past because Andrew focuses on exactly what is necessary improve your score. Even though the sessions are through a video chat, it does not take away anything from what he teaches. If anything, it is much more convenient since we can have our lessons wherever I want! His experience in writing and editing other test prep company passages is especially helpful, as he knows the ins and outs of the test. Overall, I’m grateful for how Andrew has taught me crucial concepts and shaped my attitude for the test. I feel much more confident now than ever before.”

  • Praheetha has really enjoyed tutoring with Andrew, seeing major improvements in the sections that have been the most difficult for her. Here is what she has to say about her experience: “When I got my first MCAT score back, I was very disappointed because not only was the score not as high as I would have liked but I wasn’t sure I how I could improve. Then I discovered MCAT Self Prep and got Andrew as a tutor, and it was the best decision I could have made to improve my score! Andrew is an awesome instructor because he doesn’t just explain the concepts but helps you figure them out on your own, so it helps reinforce what I am learning. Most importantly he is very encouraging, and I always feel like I have someone cheering in my corner. Another thing that I like about MCAT Self Prep is that it is easy to schedule a tutoring session and if you need a particular time the tutors are more than happy to work with you. Andrew helped me plan an entire study schedule based on my needs and other activities, which made the study process less overwhelming. So far, I have noticed that my score has jumped up 4 points in each of my “problem” sections and overall, I feel a lot more confident about taking my next test. 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.”

  • Dylan took the MCAT a year ago, but was unsatisfied with his original score (a little over a 500). After just the first month of tutoring with Andrew, his score jumped up about 10 points! And just before his test date, he was scoring a little over a 515 on AAMC practice exams. He really enjoyed the tutoring sessions and found them to be much more effective than the sessions he had with tutors from other companies in the past. Here’s what he has to say about his experience: “Andrew is always very prepared for our tutoring sessions. Before every session, he spends time carefully reviewing your questions, allowing him to explain things very well during each session. 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. What sets Andrew apart from other tutors is his knowledge and his preparation. The preparation he puts into each tutoring session makes a world of difference. Andrew is always familiar and very knowledgeable on every topic we are discussing. If you are looking for a tutor who really understands the material and can answer all of your questions, I would highly recommend Andrew.”

  • Rufus found out about the MCAT Self Prep eCourse with a month left to study before his MCAT test date. Within just a couple weeks, his practice exam scores jumped up 10 points, and he ended up scoring a 516 on his final AAMC practice exam just before test day. He feels that tutoring with Andrew was essential to having a great test day experience: “Andrew is a patient, compassionate, and empathetic tutor. Aside from the fact that he knows a ton about the subject matter (as shown by his high MCAT score), to me, much of his value as a tutor was the confidence he instilled in me as a student. During tutoring sessions, he 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. For these reasons, I would highly recommend Andrew as a tutor.” Click here to watch Rufus open his MCAT score results!

  • Alyssa was struggling to improve as she was studying on her own for the MCAT. She decided to start meeting with Andrew during her final month of MCAT studying and was so glad that she did. In just a few weeks of working with Andrew, she improved her score 6 points from a 511 to a 517 on test day! Here is what she has to say: “I started studying with Andrew 5 weeks before my test day because I felt like I was not improving in my studying on my own. Andrew helped me to focus my studying and helped me to plan mini-exams to test myself the last couple weeks before my MCAT. He was very helpful in answering my questions and making me feel confident. He explained things very clearly and also gave me some great test-taking tips specific to the MCAT. I would highly recommend Andrew over ANY prep course – you will get personalized assistance so that you don’t need to waste time on things that you already know and someone that really wants to see you do your best.”

  • When Mohammed took the MCAT for the first time, he was unable to earn a score above a 500. Working with Andrew, however, he was able to make some great improvements and break the 500 barrier: "Andrew is a godsend and personally the most helpful person in my MCAT journey! With his tutoring services, my score improved by 7 points and I regained confidence in myself to do well. Without a shadow of a doubt his teaching philosophy is phenomenal because he goes to great lengths to make sure the material sticks and makes sense. His cheerful personality also makes it easy to connect with him and it feels as if I am learning from him in person even though our sessions are online. Speaking of the tutoring sessions, Andrew is always consistent in starting them on time and keeping a professional attitude. He truly cares about his students and definitely helped me understand my true potential!"

  • Mariya took the MCAT once already. But because she got a score much lower than her goal, she decided to give tutoring with Andrew a try. In just a few sessions, she is already finding it to be an extremely valuable experience. Here is what she has to say about it: “Working with Andrew has been very helpful in my preparation for the MCAT. He has helped me incorporate the materials I already use into the best personalized study plan. Besides thoroughly responding to my questions, he constantly provides examples that help test my knowledge of a particular subject. The explanations he posts in response to my questions online are also always concise and to the point, which make the material easier to understand. Additionally, during our sessions, Andrew is very optimistic and empathetic, checking up to see if I am on track towards my goal and helping me plan my next steps. Overall, I am positive that these tutoring sessions and the strategies Andrew is teaching me will lead to an increase in my MCAT score!”

  • Working with Andrew, River improved over 10 points between taking AAMC Scored 1 and AAMC Scored 2 less than a month later. Here is what he has to say regarding his experience: "Working with Andrew was one of the best decisions I have made during my MCAT preparation. Not only was Andrew very helpful during our tutoring sessions together, but he was also easily accessible when I had questions regarding my study plan and other aspects of my preparation. With Andrew’s help I was able to learn the ins and outs of how to approach the CARS and what I needed to do to drastically improve my score. Andrew made tutoring sessions very comfortable and personal. If I uploaded information into my study portal that I needed help with, I knew that Andrew would work diligently to prepare for our session together the next day. Because of this, I had extreme confidence as I sat down to take the MCAT. I recommend MCAT Self Prep over any other prep company, hands down."

  • Hannah struggled immensely with improving her MCAT score above the 500 mark despite using a variety of expensive preparation options... until she met Andrew. Here is her experience: "Before finding Andrew, I had already taken expensive review courses only to find myself not improving and obtaining another low MCAT score on my record. Andrew focuses his time and energy to help you think like the MCAT creators and helps YOU focus your time and energy on good-quality MCAT material proven to yield high scores. He realizes that most premed students are (1) on a budget, and (2) extremely busy. He has made his personal tutoring services around the student, having the student ask questions instead of him teaching topics we could probably learn from a video or reviewing things we probably already know. He truly focuses on your challenges and tries to improve those. With his help, I was able to improve my score by 10 points from a 496 to a 506. I'm really glad I came up on his site, and I've told all my premed friends about him."

During our session, Andrew provided me with a personalized month-to-month study plan to maximize my study time. He is very knowledgeable and prepared himself well before the session to address my questions. He also provided thorough explanations to all of my questions. Overall, I highly recommend Andrew as a tutor!”

  • Randy tutored with Andrew during his final month of MCAT preparation, and he was able to get his score up to a 511 overall. He was especially been impressed with Andrew’s ability to help him with the CARS section of the MCAT: “Being from Canada, and wanting to attend a Canadian medical school, meant earning a very strong CARS score. I tried many different CARS strategies and have done many passages, but nothing really worked. I needed to try something different. I learned about MCAT Self Prep and immediately wanted to give them a try. The reason they stuck out to me was: (1) they are extremely cost friendly (especially versus the other guys), (2) the attractiveness of the one-on-one format, and (3) the flexibility of the online-video-chat format. So far it’s been great. My tutor, Andrew, is extremely helpful and very well prepared. Going into my first session I didn’t know what to expect, but I was extremely, pleasantly surprised. He understood where I went wrong (based on questions I provided to him from certain passages) and offered advice that is helping me avoid making those same mistakes again. I strongly recommend MCAT Self Prep!”

  • After spending thousands of dollars failing to even score above a 500 on his first attempt, Mahmoud sought out Andrew's help as he prepared to take the MCAT again. Even with English as a second language, Mahmoud was able to make significant improvements: "After spending 4K+ on a MCAT testing company on my first attempt, I retook the MCAT with Andrew.The website/system that Andrew offers is the utopia of MCAT preparation. Not only does it prepare you for the MCAT but also, changes your lifestyle and how one should properly approach the MCAT. During the diagnostics & taking FLs, my score changed from a 495 to a 510 and I witnessed a 7 point increase on the real deal. Also, English is my second language, so CARS was a bit challenging for me. On top of that, I lost 10 mins of time during the CARS section on the real thing (Yikes). However, thanks to the CARS strategy course, I was able to do just fine on the CARS section despite all the obstacles. With the deluxe pro plan & the great great great great FLASHCARDS that I was able to use anywhere, I got the MCAT score I wanted. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Thank you Andrew for all your work"

With Andrew’s help, she was able to improve her score by over 5 points in just a few weeks! Here is what she has to say regarding her experience: “Preparing for the MCAT can be both time consuming and expensive, so I was really excited when I heard about the MCAT Self Prep Tutoring Program. Andrew was very patient and flexible – which is so valuable for the busy college student. I had been studying on my own, so it really helped to have an expert to guide me in the crucial last weeks before the test. At the same time, I also had the independence to make my own schedule to fit my current needs (i.e. summer work, etc.). Many thanks to Andrew for helping me stay positive throughout the study process!”

  • "Working with Andrew was a very productive and fun experience! Andrew is a very nice person to get along with and one of the biggest aspects of taking the MCAT and excelling it is confidence; Andrew helps instill a sense of confidence that really reflected on my practice full lengths. I would definitely recommend him to people looking to increase their MCAT scores. The lay out of the course is very cohesive and organized making my content review phase very productive and less overwhelming. With Andrew's help and the MCAT Self Prep program, I was able to achieve a 523 on my final AAMC practice exam."

  • Monica working with Andrew to be extremely helpful and very convenient for someone with a very busy schedule. Here's her take on it: "Being a non-traditional medical school applicant with a part-time job, graduate research, and midterms, MCAT Self Prep allowed me to figure out a study routine that was most effective for my busy lifestyle. The only regret I have in my first attempt at the MCAT is not having invested in tutoring with Andrew. Working one-on-one with him allowed me to figure out a study plan specific to my weaknesses and raise my score by 5 points in as little as one month! The tutoring sessions were flexible to my schedule, were just as good if not better than an in-person session, and the honest and helpful insight Andrew's sessions gave me extensively improved my confidence and performance on the MCAT."

  • Dakota improved his MCAT score by 15 points working with Andrew. Here is what he had to say: "MCAT Self Prep is the real deal. Like most premeds, for me the MCAT has been one of my largest obstacles to tackle. In December of 2017, I began my MCAT studying by taking a full length AAMC practice exam, and after scoring a 487 on it, I knew I needed to get some sort of system to help me learn how to take the test and not be overwhelmed by the amount of content and the length of test. After searching the web for a course that didn't cost an arm and a leg, I found MCAT Self Prep. The feeling was similar to that of finding an oasis in the desert, although I have never had such an experience I imagine it to be similar... The content modules cover everything you need to know. I took the beloved MCAT on June 17th and walked out telling my fiancé, that it was actually kind of fun! I didn't do as well as I had hoped to on the first round, but scoring a 502 was a nice 15 point jump from my initial AAMC practice exam! This success was due to nothing less than God, MCAT Self Prep, and a lot of hard work. Andrew is a kind light-hearted guy, he makes tutoring not feel like a chore; he becomes your friend during the tutoring sessions, and his skills are beyond excellent. MCAT Self Prep is the way to go!!!"

  • Alec tried many different programs in his pursuit of a top MCAT score, but found working with Andrew during his final month to be the key to his success: "Andrew (and MCAT Self Prep in general) has helped me improve my score significantly! Before working with Andrew, I scored a 503 on an AAMC full-length exam. During my 3 sessions with Andrew, he gave honest feedback, tips, and strategies on how to improve my score. With his help and expertise, I was able to improve my score by 7 points in just a month up to a 510 on an AAMC full length. Also, his simple, yet effective tips for CARS improved my score from a 121 to a 125. He has been extremely flexible, easy to contact, prepared, and the most personable tutor I have ever had. I highly recommend Andrew and MCAT Self Prep, as his is method of tutoring is the BEST!"

  • Tutoring with Andrew was Serena's last hope for an applications-worthy MCAT score, and she was not disappointed. Here's what she had to say after getting her MCAT score back: "I came to MCAT Self Prep having worked with two different tutoring companies. Needless to say, I was a bit hesitant that I could meet my MCAT goals, but after speaking with Andrew those reservations subsided. Andrew worked tirelessly in helping to identify my weaknesses while suggesting varied approaches to the four sections of the MCAT. Throughout our sessions together we spent hours reviewing my questions and concerns along with different test-taking strategies. Andrew was punctual, professional, humorous, and extremely knowledgeable. Overall, working as a team, I personally felt that Andrew was not only invested financially but genuinely cared about my success. In fact, even on the morning of the actual test day, Andrew was texting me last minute suggestions and words of encouragement. After a long journey - today - I’m proud to say that I’ll be applying to medical school! I wish to thank MCAT Self Prep and wholeheartedly recommend Andrew as your future MCAT tutor."

  • Using Andrew's tutoring program, Timothy was able to improve his score from a 504 to a 521, improving by 10 points during his final month of studying, during which he did most of his sessions: "Working with Andrew to prepare for the MCAT was the best decision I have made as a pre-medical student. First, we set up a study plan around my difficult class and research schedule so that I could cover all of the content without overwhelming myself. During the final month of studying, sessions with Andrew were the driving force behind increasing my score from a 511 to a 521 on test day. His scheduling was very flexible around my tough schedule and still gave the intimate tutoring experience meeting in person can give. What separates Andrew from any other tutor I have had in the past is his preparedness: he had reasons and supporting material ready for every question I knew I had, and caught a few issues I was not even aware of having before a session started. If you have any issues with problem solving, he has great methods of breaking down and solving problems in a repeatable and intuitive manner and will walk you through his methods."

  • "After having taken the MCAT once and utilizing different test prep companies, I was still unable to break the 510+ MCAT mark. However, once I learned about Andrew and his website, that goal was no longer a dream. In just over a month, Andrew helped raise my test score from a 497 to a 511 on my last AAMC practice test. Andrew is by far the most personable, caring, and thoughtful MCAT tutor that I have ever met. His schedule is very flexible, and for each of our online meetings, Andrew came fully prepared and clearly answered all of my questions. I 10/10 recommend Andrew and MCATSelfPrep.com for anyone who wants to see improvement and success on the MCAT."

Here is what she had to say regarding her experience: “When I started the studying process, I was really overwhelmed by all the different ways to study.

  • George felt that Andrew was able to help his dreams become a reality: "I called Andrew for tutoring after I had been studying for 5 months and had been incredibly disappointed after scoring a 503 on my practice. Andrew did a phenomenal job of not only helping me with concepts on the MCAT, but also did an amazing job of motivating me when my confidence got broken while studying. His tutoring sessions were impeccable - he really outperformed my highest expectations with how hard he worked to provide detailed notes/supplementary material to help me understand the test better. Over three sessions in the course of a little over a month, I improved my score 10 points to a 513 on test day. I couldn't be happier with the tutoring I got from Andrew from MCAT Self Prep."

  • Brianna felt like working with Andrew was exactly what she needed to improve on her previous MCAT attempt: "My name is Brianna Samonte and the first time I took the MCAT I received a 504. To prepare, I used the Kaplan books and study resources, which I thought were helpful at the time but once I started doing AAMC practice, I could tell there was a gap. I stumbled across MCAT Self Prep by chance as I was perusing the internet for personal tutors and am so grateful that I found this site. Andrew's method for preparing students for the MCAT is engaging, comprehensive, and unique. I loved the way that unlike other test prep companies, MCAT Self Prep utilized resources from various resources, so you don't just get accustomed to their particular type of material. I also felt that the services offered due to Andrew and his team's diligence and hard work ethic far exceeded my expectations considering how affordable the program is. Another benefit that I enjoyed was the flexibility of the prep course. Along each step of the way, the course constantly makes adjustments along with your tutor to ensure that you are studying in the most effective and efficient way possible. Because of Andrew and MCAT Self Prep I was able to raise my score from a 504 on my original MCAT to 514 on test day in just 3 short months, finding time to balance a family vacation and other personal activities in between. Andrew and his program are a great fit for any pre-med out there looking to crush the MCAT. I highly recommend MCAT Self Prep!"

  • Beth feels that Andrew played a major role in her achieving a 100th percentile MCAT score: "Working with Andrew to organize and prioritize my study schedule was a defining factor in my MCAT outcome. As a non-traditional student, I had a limited amount of time to dedicate to studying for my exam. Andrew was very reassuring and helped me craft a custom schedule that didn’t feel rushed or inadequate. The organization of his course and systematic approach allowed me to dedicate all my time to meaningful interaction with the content. I do not feel like I wasted any time in the studying process-- I would have if I had gone it alone. Because of his guidance, I went from a 502 at the beginning of the process to scoring a 524 (100th percentile) on the MCAT in just over two months. I highly recommend MCAT Self Prep. You can trust Andrew and his process."

She feels that tutoring with Andrew during the final month was the key to some last minute improvements: "Andrew was really invested in my training and was very open about sharing the right ways to study for the MCAT. I definitely saw an increase in my scores with his tutoring. I was able to increase my score by 11 points in a span of 3 weeks with his tutoring. During the practice reviews, he made it a point to focus on the important topics and also tested me during the tutoring sessions on the topics that I was doubtful of. I would definitely recommend his tutoring sessions"
