MCAT Tutoring

The MCAT is a 6-hour and 15-minute computer-based test required for admission to medical school. Most selective medical schools heavily weigh the MCAT in their admissions decisions.

Our MCAT Tutoring Program

Our educational approach to the MCAT involves comprehensive, long-term study of the core concepts in science, social science, and verbal reasoning tested on the exam. Our students develop a deep understanding of the material and hone crucial analytical skills that help them excel both on the MCAT and as they continue their academic and professional careers.

The depth and breadth of material tested on the MCAT demands rigorous study. Through weekly meetings, homework assignments, and timed, full-length practice tests, students learn the concepts, synthesize the information, and practice targeted strategies for approaching each section of the exam.

Contact us to speak to a program consultant about your goals and set up a diagnostic MCAT.

Program Length

We recommend that students study for the MCAT for at least 4–6 months. Because students’ science backgrounds vary considerably, longer programs may be advisable. Based on diagnostic test scores and other considerations we will tailor a plan that meets each student’s individual needs.
