She plans to enter medical school next year, and having scored in the 99th percentile on the MCAT, is well-equipped to help others prepare for the exam. Although she prefers to work with students by meeting regularly so as to develop a good rapport and a better understanding of their learning style, Vanessa is also available for review sessions just before an exam.

Jonathan is a resident physician at NYU School of Medicine. He graduated with a Summa Cum Laude Bachelor of Science in Neural Science from NYU’s College of Arts and Science, and an Accelerated 3-Year MD from NYU’s School of Medicine. He views science and math as sophisticated languages for distilling the simple from the complex, and loves sharing his excitement for these fields. After years of practicing and refining his studentship, he strives to share the tips and tricks he has learned to help students build their understanding. He believes that understanding is the goal, and tests are just a measure of understanding. The successful academic path is paved by placing the focus on understanding, not memorization, and removing any obstacles that impede the measurement of understanding (e.g. test anxiety).

Nitai Melnick began tutoring in high school when a teacher approached him about helping fellow students learn AP Physics. Since then he has leaned on his experience as a student to inform his tutoring. In college, after getting his first taste of computer programming, Nitai volunteered to tutor fellow students struggling in the course and was later hired by Princeton to teach a section of organic chemistry. After graduation, Nitai spent a year teaching pre-medical students who were preparing for the MCAT and other entrance exams. He was hired by a test prep company in Tel Aviv, where he tutored MCAT and taught a course in AP Biology, Chemistry, and Physics, for which he designed the curriculum. Throughout the course, Nitai adjusted the teaching materials he created to meet his students’ needs.

Frequently Asked Questions About MCAT Tutoring & Prep
Is MCAT tutoring worth it?
MCAT Tutoring is worth it, if you have the right tutor. The MCAT exam is difficult and requires a lot of preparation. It is not something that you can study for in a few weeks or months. You need to put in the time, effort and commitment to get through it successfully. Private tutoring is an excellent way to get the help you need for your MCAT exam. You can work with an expert on a schedule that works for you, so you don't have to worry about missed classes or homework assignments.
How much does MCAT tutoring cost?
MCAT tutors typically charge between $100 and $600 per hour. The cost will vary depending on your tutor's experience, the quality of his or her reviews, and what kind of services you're looking for. Luckily, Inspirica Pros has a wide range of tutors available to help meet any budget.
What's covered during an MCAT tutoring session?
MCAT tutors will work with you on specific topics you need help with based on your personal needs. They'll also help you develop strategies for taking the test itself and provide feedback on how well you're doing compared to others who have taken it before you.
The exact content covered in each session depends on your needs and goals. However, most students want to cover certain topics in order to perform well on the exam:
- Biochemistry (including amino acids, nucleic acids and metabolism)
- Biological processes (such as cellular transport)
- Cellular structure (including organelles)
Can MCAT tutoring really increase my score?
Many people who have taken the MCAT exam say that they got the score they wanted and passed the exam with flying colors after having private tutors help them prepare for the test. The exact score you can expect will depend on several factors like how much time you spend studying and how much effort goes into preparing for a particular section of the test.
Can you self study for the MCAT exam, or do you need a tutor?
Many students who take the MCAT self-study because they don't have time for tutoring or don't want to spend money on private lessons with someone they don't know well (or at all). But self-study isn't always an option — especially if you're struggling with an area of science that's not covered in your classwork.
If you choose to use a private tutor, look for one who has experience teaching people how to succeed on this exam. You want someone who can assess your current knowledge level and identify areas where you need extra help.
What is the hardest part of the MCAT exam?
The hardest part of the MCAT exam is the time limit. The test is only 4 hours long, but it requires careful pacing and preparation to stay within this time limit. The best way to prepare for this is to practice taking timed practice exams.
How often should I be studying for the MCAT?
The best way to answer this question is to look at how often you would study for a class in college or university. The MCAT is designed to assess your ability to apply concepts and understandings in real-world situations — not just memorize facts or formulas (although knowing how to find those facts and formulas will help).
So if you were taking a semester course that had an average final exam grade of 75%, you would want to spend approximately 30 hours studying for it (assuming three hours per week). If you were taking an advanced course that had an average final exam grade of 90%, you would want to spend approximately 50 hours studying for it (assuming five hours per week).
What's considered a good score on the MCAT exam?
According to data from AAMC, a score between 501-520 is considered competitive for most schools; however there may be some variation among individual schools. In addition, keep in mind that there are several factors that go into how competitive you are as an applicant including your undergraduate GPA.
An Overview of the MCAT Exam Format
The MCAT is a 5 hour and 15 minute, 311 question exam that covers content in the natural sciences, social sciences, and the behavioral and cognitive sciences. The test has four sections: Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems; Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills; Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems; Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior.
