How and where do the sessions take place?

All MCAT Nerds tutoring is performed online via either Zoom or Skype. This way, you can be paired with the best MCAT tutor fit for you regardless of location.

Is there a lesson plan and schedule?

MCAT Nerds tutoring is customized to each student’s individual needs, which are understood through initial sessions and assessments. Our tutors have had incomparable success in getting MCAT students high scores, with overall score improvements generally ranging from 10-24 points. It is important to keep in mind that individual improvement is dependent on the student. If you are seeking a guarantee of a specific score, please contact us to discuss options.

Is CARS (Critical Analysis and Reading Skills) tutoring included? 

Absolutely. Almost uniformly, U.S. medical schools consider the CARS sub-section score of the MCAT to be the most important for admitting students, since it correlates most closely with USMLE scores in medical school, so CARS tutoring is an especially vital component in your journey to medical school admission.

How often do you meet? How much do you charge?

Session frequency ranges from weekly to daily, and exact times and hours will be scheduled depending on your personal needs and goals. Hourly rates are $145/hr. 

Most students receive between 20 and 35 hours of tutoring to achieve their goal. We understand that each student may have different needs and goals, and our high-performance MCAT tutoring will be customized according to your needs.
