More About Benjamin

Hey! Call me Ben! I can’t wait to help you achieve your MCAT dreams! There is no doubt in my mind that anyone can do well on the MCAT, it just takes a little help. One of the keys for MCAT success and reduced stress is planning ahead. Once I had a solid plan for my MCAT prep everything went much more smoothly.

My work with MCAT Self Prep began in July 2017 working on the Free Prep Course. In particular, I created most of the flashcards contained in the Physics Quizlet sets. By the time I took the MCAT in August of 2018 I had used nearly every resource available through MCAT Self Prep.

I had a unique experience preparing for the MCAT because I had the opportunity to see my brother prepare just a few years earlier and had all his experience to call upon when I needed direction and help. Knowing what material to study and how to tackle the various types of questions was so much easier with him as my guide. It certainly didn’t hurt that my brother is MCAT Self Prep’s CEO and Founder, Andrew George. My goal is to be that older brother to all my students.

The best part of the MCAT Self Prep program is all the help and support you get in creating a strong MCAT study plan. There is so much to do that it can be very overwhelming, and having a well-made plan takes all the stress out of it. My experience studying for the MCAT was made so much easier through the MCAT Self Prep resources. I am excited to help take the stress out of this process for you.

Beyond my medical school prep, I love music above all else. I sing nearly constantly and can often be heard bursting into song. I also play guitar, piano, and ukulele. I try my best to stay in shape by running or going to the gym. For fun, I love to play board games and card games, the more strategy the better.

I am so excited to help you succeed on the MCAT and be your friend. Whatever your MCAT needs, I can explain the material in a way that you will understand, and teach you the strategies you need to succeed.

Your MCAT Study Buddy,

Benjamin George

Hear What Ben's Students are Saying About Him

  • “Benjamin George has been working with me since last winter. Since we started our tutoring sessions, I have been able to understand concepts better. He is extremely dedicated to helping me and others understand the concepts and has helped me apply the concepts to the problem given. Apart from being an incomparable joy to work with, he is adaptable to the needs of each individual student.  He is very detail oriented and highly favored not only by me, but also my colleagues. I am a part of the Brigham Young University football team and time is, unfortunately, an essence that I don’t have compared to most students. Ben has been dedicated to helping me succeed despite my busy schedule. He breaks down materials to the simplest components, he doesn’t just tell me the answers, but he helps me work through the problems step by step. He also helps me think conceptually about the problem. If I would have to compare him to my last tutors, I would give him five stars out of five. Many former tutors would often simply give me the answers to the homework problems and, consequently, I would not learn. When it came for examinations, I would freeze and my examination scores would be lower than my expectations. In my time with Ben, my test scores increased, my capability to think conceptually improved, and my understanding of the subject augmented. He is enjoyable to work with, his personality is affable, and, if anyone wants their MCAT scores to improve, I would highly recommend Ben. ”

  • My experience with Ben as a tutor has been both enjoyable and extremely helpful. When helping me, he was able to point out key strategies and skills to help me better understand and remember important concepts. Ben has my confidence in tutoring for the MCAT because he has always been able to answer all my questions quickly, displaying to me his extensive knowledge of many key STEM concepts. As one who struggles with math, he has always made me feel intelligent and encouraged rather than belittled as some tutors I have had in the past. I would highly recommend Ben to anyone who is looking to study for the MCAT!

  • “Ben was patient and explained concepts so that they were simple to understand. I appreciated that he would take the time to work through the problems with me, providing just enough information to help me arrive at the correct answers, rather than simply giving me the answers. Ben's analytical and reasoning skills would be advantageous for him as a tutor because he could help students learn how to approach problems, which they could then use to tackle questions in multiple sections of the MCAT. ”

  • “Ben is an awesome tutor! I really enjoyed working with him as he was always so attentive to what I needed to learn specifically. He was very patient with me, especially when he would have to explain concepts 2 and 3 times to help me understand. I would recommend Ben to anyone looking for a tutor, especially someone looking for a MCAT tutor. ”

  • Benjamin has very helpful during my MCAT prep. Of course the majority of your MCAT prep will be based on your own effort. There’s only so much a tutor can do but having someone working alongside you can be helpful. Ben has helped me to approach questions differently, which has allowed me to understand them better, which will lead to more questions being correct. His explanations are clear and sometimes a bit detailed, but it’s all because he really cares about your progress. He’s also a great guy to talk to overall. I have seen major progress in my studies with his help. I would recommend Ben as your MCAT tutor.

  • “I have had a lot of tutors for various science classes and I can confidently say that Ben was the most clear and precise tutor I have had. A lot of tutors get stuck in the routine of just stating facts but, Ben was really good at explaining concepts in a way that I was able to learn and apply them. It wasn't a wrote discussion but, was specific to me. He was very clear in how he explained concepts. I got my highest grade because of his tutoring! Definitely would recommend him as a tutor!”

    Trajan

  • “Ben is an outstanding tutor. He expressed sincere desire and care to help me learn the material well. He is very patient with those he works with and is very invested in their success. He help me prepare well for my organic chemistry final and I got a good grade because of it. Ben is very intelligent and is capable of preparing people well for exams. I would recommend Ben as anybody’s tutor for the MCAT.”
