Our MCAT approach
Prepare around your schedule
We founded AJ Tutoring with an understanding of the time constraints on modern students, leading us to develop a highly efficient and customized approach to improving a student’s MCAT score. Our tutors are available for in-person or online sessions.
A customized approach
Our 1-on-1 approach allows each student to build confidence in his or her unique trouble spots, increasing the chances of significant improvement in a relatively short period of time. This is especially important given the quantity and variety of content tested on the MCAT:
- Organic chemistry
- Reading comprehension
- Scientific inquiry and reasoning
Many MCAT tutoring services require a student to work with multiple part-time tutors (one for each section of the test) for 30-60 hours, or work with students in group settings. AJ Tutoring matches each student with a single professional educator for a customized preparation. This approach results in an efficient and effective student-tutor relationship, allowing us to best understand and modify each student’s thought processes throughout the exam. We recommend 18-24 hours of 1-on-1 prep over 3-5 months, but we are flexible in working within different time frames.
What we cover
Our MCAT tutoring program focuses on dissecting a student’s errors on the best practice materials available; quantifying progress via full-length practice exams and smaller problem sets; guiding individualized content review; thorough discussion of conceptually difficult material; test-taking techniques; answer elimination and guessing strategies; and pacing and stamina.
