If we can do it, so can you.
We ALL struggled during MCAT prep.
None of us were "naturals". We all saw scores plateauing, not improving, some of us even experienced scores going DOWN, but there came a moment where it clicked after we started applying the right strategy.
The right strategies skyrocketed our scores.
With the right strategies, we all managed to increase our MCAT scores to the 515+ mark very quickly. When we work together, you can be sure we'll understand exactly what challenges you're facing, and how we can maximize your score and confidence by your test date.
We can do the same for you =)
Throughout our MCAT strategy tutoring sessions with you, our main focus will be getting you to that moment where it "clicks" - like it did for us - so we replicate our fast score jump for your MCAT score, so you can finally get a competitive score for med-school admission.

7 point increase in 2 weeks | Retaker
I scheduled 3 sessions throughout the last 2 weeks of my MCAT studying. Right off the bat Natasha was cordial and flexible…
With her help, over a two week span and between 2 AAMC FLs, I saw a 7 point increase. She...was an absolutely wonderful person to have in my corner for the last 2 weeks leading up to my MCAT.
505 to 515 in 8 weeks
Adam was amazing!!! After just a few sessions, I saw my practice exam scores shoot up 5 points immediately and after 2 months I was able to achieve my goal score and I am confident that I wouldn't have been able to do this without Adam's guidance!
15 point increase in 11 weeks | Retaker
This was my second time taking the MCAT and I went into the start of studying feeling super discouraged…
Sophie was so patient, encouraging, and helpful. She really knew what she was talking about and…was super helpful! Just from my last practice test, she helped me improve my score 15 points which I never thought was possible.
507 to 514 in 3 weeks
I was tutored by Bill and appreciated the thorough review of practice problems and test strategy tips he provided. My confidence also increased over the sessions. I scored a 514, a 6 point increase in three weeks and a result I am excited with!
Let's make sure this is the last time you have to take the MCAT .

Convenient & Flexible Online Scheduling

Guided MCAT Passage Walkthroughs
We'll go through highly reliable passages with you, showing you how to think through the passages, see through the questions, and pinpoint the right answer. You'll start to think like a top scorer when you're doing the exam on your own.
We Match You With The Perfect MCAT Tutor

Along with 1:1 tutoring with your mentor, you'll get access to a free 60-90 minute weekly online group tutoring session and a 515+ scoring mentor! You'll be joined by other testers and you'll learn from their questions as well!
How We'll Get Your MCAT Score Up Before Your Test Date
The same way we got their score up
We'll show you how to strategically work through those long, confusing science passages. Everything from interpreting/analyzing the charts/tables/graphs to understanding the passages, questions, and answer choices in your first read.
We'll show you simple tricks to start seeing through the boring, tricky CARS passages and answer choices. Improving your reading comprehension and critical thinking can be easier than you think and once you get this down, you'll do better in all the other sections of the MCAT, which will lead to a smooth ride to your competitive 511+ MCAT score!
There isn't one MCAT study "schedule" template that is right for everyone. Top scorers know this. But there is a right way to create one for yourself to guarantee MCAT success. We'll work with you to create your own individual, custom study plan, while tracking your progress along the way and making adjustments where necessary to ensure you achieve your score goal.
Mastery of MCAT content is the first step towards a 511+ score. If you're struggling with any specific section(s), we'll make sure you understand it quickly. We'll especially help you get a strong grasp of all high yield topics that we know you're going to be tested on. We've mastered every single section on the MCAT and a lot of us even majored in Chem, Phys, and/or Bio!
A lot of premeds mess up MCAT practice because they don't know how or when to practice, yet this is the MOST IMPORTANT piece of the puzzle to a high MCAT score. We'll show you exactly how to go about it and also work through any practice questions you're struggling with. By working with us on practice questions, you'll understand the "511+ scorer way of thinking" and you'll never struggle with a similar question.
We'll show you how to maintain a healthy mindset through MCAT prep. Know that we're your mentors who not only help you with MCAT content and strategy, but are also your motivational guides, your coaches that hold you accountable, your supportive friends, those who you can connect with and rely on to be there for you in the worst times, and your best times, as we all progress on our journey to becoming doctors!

Pooja…is one of the smartest and sweetest people I have had the pleasure of meeting. She has taught me so much and is so caring. Before working with her I really didn’t know that content can only take you so far and how crucial strategy and critical thinking can be for all the sections.
She helped me reconstruct how I thought about and approached the MCAT - as something that is doable and in fact designed for me to be able to do well on, despite popular belief. I used to hate CARS. I think it might be my favorite section now, which is crazy to say.
But it goes to show how much Pooja helped me rewire my brain, refine my critical thinking skills, and most importantly trust myself.
14 point increase in 4 weeks | Retaker
Hieu…was beyond incredible. This was my second time studying for the MCAT and I was stuck at a score plateau for the longest time. When I met with Hieu, he really showed me that I knew the material and knew what I was doing, and that I needed to have more confidence and believe in myself, and would then see a difference in my score…
I took his advice and ended up breaking my plateau by 8 points!! I then met with him again and he gave me even more encouragement, tips and advice, and when I took the last practice test before my actual test date, I ended up increasing 4 points from the previous one!...
I ended up with almost a 12 point increase during my time with Hieu and I cannot thank him enough for helping me and being a source of encouragement and support! He truly cares about his student and wants them to succeed, and is willing to do anything for them. He was truly an incredible tutor.
499 to 511 in 4 weeks | Retaker
I first joined [MedLife] Mastery very scared and with little confidence in my test taking abilities. I took the MCAT in late July, but just a month before that, I would struggle to score above a 500. At my lowest, I scored a 499 on a practice exam and I really needed help with every section.
My first session with Saanya was in early July, and she approached me with the confidence and the reassurance that I lacked. She helped me improve in the areas that I was weakest and helped me go from mastering content to mastering the actual test. I am proud to have known her not only as a tutor, but a good friend.
After our sessions, I approached the test with more confidence and through her guidance, I improved my score from a 499 to a 511 on test day one month later.

More Frequently Asked Questions!
Every week, once a week, a different 515+ scorer MCAT Mastery Mentor hosts a 60-90 minute group tutoring session with students who are paid members of our community; who are tutoring 1:1, or are enrolled in any one of our courses.
In these group tutoring sessions, you can ask your own questions, learn from other students' questions, meet others who are taking the MCAT as well, make connections, learn from the tutor about test-taking strategy, get passage walkthroughs, and so much more!
Basically, you're getting an additional free weekly tutoring session with any package you buy! How valuable is that?!?
We want to do everything we can to help you get to your score goal :)
How much money are you going to spend, or have you already spent pushing back your MCAT, retaking the MCAT, and buying prep books? What good are the prep books if you don’t know how to properly use them?
What good is buying a car without knowing how to drive and how risky is it to try to teach yourself how to drive? You need an instructor. We’ll teach you how to properly learn the content, help you with anything you’re struggling with, so you can (most importantly) SAVE TIME! Speaking of time...
How much is your time worth? Top MCAT scorers put extreme importance on their time. If you’re not worrying about the MCAT anymore, you can put focus and energy into applications, working, and so much more other stuff - including taking a well-deserved break and actually enjoying the summer. But none of that can happen if you're trying to "reinvent the wheel" and figure out the MCAT game by yourself, instead of getting guidance from someone who has already beat it.
If you’re going to be a doctor think like a doctor now - value your time at $150+ per hour. We believe we can fast-track your MCAT score progress by a month or more with our strategies and insights. Without these methods, you’ll be trying to figure it out yourself - like a tourist without a map.
So yes, tutoring is worth it and it will pay for itself.
After paying lots of money for expensive prep courses and tutoring, we barely saw any results…
We now know what's missing with most other MCAT tutors and tutoring companies.
To name a few things:
- You’re often assigned to "MCAT experts", who have no proof of high score
- Those tutors aren’t focused on strategy, even though they know the content
- If they scored well, they’re usually ‘naturals’ with no idea of how to teach
- Their focus isn't on extremely fast score improvement
Think about it, if you make slow progress in your score while getting tutoring, that means you take more tutoring sessions, which means more of an income for them. This is why we think it's really rare to find high quality tutoring
But our focus is different…
Our goal from the very first session is to supercharge your score improvement as quickly as possible - regardless of when your test date is.
The sooner we can get you to your score goal, the sooner we can help someone else. We don’t have dozens of tutors like other companies. It’s just a few of us with limited time because most of us are in med-school!
If you want us to hold your hand all throughout your MCAT prep, all the way until your MCAT test date itself, we can do that for you too.
This initiative is us giving back - not trying to overcharge you so we can live in luxury... We'll save that for when we're doctors!
Unlike most companies, we’re not going to charge you $90+ per hour for a tutoring session. Kaplan charges $250+. That’s kind of ridiculous.
We're a small team trying to help as many students as we can. We're not trying to be the next Kaplan or TPR. Unlike most companies, we're not so far removed from your current situation that we care about profits more than we care about our students. We know the burden debt carries. Being a premed costs a lot. Way too much. We've paid the prices ourselves (still are) and we believe it's absolutely ridiculous that so many companies charge an arm and a leg to help students, simply because they know that when premeds need to get into med-school, they're at their most vulnerable stage because getting to med-school means so much. Which means you (and/or your parents) will pay them what they're asking because you're already so invested. It's not fair and this is us 'fighting back' and doing our part. We understand that you might have the idea that you 'get what you pay for' but that's not the case here. Hope that provides some perspective :)
Year after year, we’ve been asked by students in the MCAT Mastery Community if we offer one-on-one tutoring by the MCAT Masters in our team…
Every time, we’ve had to apologize and let our students know we just don’t have the time to offer those services…
Every time, we could feel the disappointment. It was painful for us to turn them away while we focused on first creating the best MCAT strategy resources in the world.
We realized that some students just need one-on-one personal MCAT help.
Some students are smart enough to know that climbing this mountain all alone, one that determines whether or not you'll make it to med-school, is not a good idea.
We realized sometimes you just need someone credible to hear you out, and offer customized advice on exactly what you need to do for your personal struggles, challenges, and frustrations.
Most importantly, you need someone who’s been in the same situation you’re currently in, someone who came out of that situation a top scorer… to tell you exactly what to do to increase your score to a competitive level by your test date! No matter where you're at right now.
You need someone to tell you exactly what you need to do to get your score competitive enough to get your application actually looked at by med-schools. Which means, depending on your GPA and which school you want to get into, you generally need a 510 or higher.
So having had these realizations...
We made the decision to launch MCAT Mastery Mentoring.
We’re super excited for this! You deserve the best MCAT prep guidance and you shouldn’t have to break the bank for it…
Because you deserve to reach your MCAT score goal, get into med-school, and create a life helping people…
You'll be able to schedule your sessions with your tutor based on your own convenience. All sessions are done online through an online web meeting software (free for you).
If you're not happy with your tutor, we can assign you to a new one! Or we can give you a refund if you've had two or less sessions and it hasn't been over 60 days since you purchased.
Your sessions will never expire so you're free to use them at any time. You can also upgrade to our med-school admission coaching packages with your remaining sessions and balance. You can learn more about our med-school application coaching packages here on our sister site, at MedLife Mastery =)
You won’t need to follow a specific schedule. You can choose your session dates/times that are available based on your preference. In your first meeting, you and your tutor may spend a few minutes coming up with a study plan/schedule and meeting frequencies that are most efficient for you and your situation specifically. Our tutors are very flexible :)
At this time we don’t provide any additional MCAT prep resources.
The main reason is that most students who sign up already have their own MCAT prep resources they’re using. Plus there are already some high quality MCAT prep materials out there and until we can create something better than what’s already available, we’re not going to sell resources that will only overwhelm our students, just for an extra profit.
If you’re in the boat where you don’t have MCAT prep resources at the moment, we suggest you spend a few minutes during your first session with your tutor to ask them what resources they give their highest recommendations to! That way you can save time from having to do the research yourself, and you know exactly what company/products to invest in for a great score.
Also if you already have MCAT prep resources you’re using which you like, our tutors are more than happy to work with the materials you already have. We will also try our best to match you with a tutor who also used the same resources as you so they can show you how to use them to achieve a score like theirs!
Firstly, yes you’re paired with a tutor. When you sign up, you’ll be directed to a questionnaire where you will answer questions about your MCAT prep so far (your current study methods, your biggest struggles, your weaknesses, strengths, your score goal, what you’re currently scoring, and so much more), and we’ll use your answers to match you with a tutor that would be perfect for you to help you increase your score by your test date.
On the other hand, one of the questions in the questionnaire is if there’s a specific tutor you’d like to request - so you can definitely choose your own tutor if you wish!
Once you sign up for a tutoring package, you can start as soon as within 24-48 hours. After signing up, you’ll be asked to fill out a questionnaire about your MCAT journey so far - how you’ve been studying, your weakest areas, the resources you’ve been using, and so much more. The more detail you can provide, the better it will be. We will use your responses to match you with a tutor (within 24 hours) and we’ll send you a link to your tutor’s calendar schedule. From there you can schedule your first session. Your tutor will use your responses to the questions to prepare, so that from the very first session they can begin working with you on improving your score!
Generally, the schedule will be worked out between you and your tutor.
After you sign up, you’ll get access to your tutor’s calendar, where you will select and schedule your first (or more) tutoring session(s) with them.
They don’t have to be scheduled all at once. You can schedule them one-by-one as you go, or perhaps after you have worked with your tutor to create an optimal studying plan until your test date :)
No you're not going to be sitting in a strategy lecture for an hour. We're not just here to give you strategies. We're here to give you strategies AND show you how to apply them for YOUR specific situation, your learning style, your schedule, your score goal, your weaknesses/strengths, and so on. Having someone analyze your current methods, including how you read through and comprehend passages, plus diagnose what's holding your score back, then telling you exactly what you need to do to start seeing your score increase, is priceless. That's what we do.
If you get a personal trainer, they tell you more than just what workouts to do and when (even though that's valuable in itself). For some people, that alone is enough. But they also show you how they applied those teachings, they watch your form, they hold you accountable, they create your workout schedule for your goals and your deadline, and so much more. Think of us as your personal "MCAT" trainers ;)
In short, you can always hope you find the right strategies and try to figure it out for yourself, kind of like a patient trying to diagnose and cure themselves by Google searching their days away, or you can go to a doctor who can just fix the issues for you so you (and your MCAT score) can feel much better after :)
Yea, we're full of analogies lol
Also if you need help brushing up on some content, we'll help you there too - it's not always just about the strategies.
The reason we ALL didn't get 525+ scores and the reason why we're so confident in our tutoring abilities, is exactly the same...
We're average students who had to scramble in figuring out how to be above average quickly.
We were just like the 90% of students who sign up to work with us everyday, who would be thrilled to quickly improve their scores by 10 or more points and get to a competitive mark (and that mark is whatever is relevant for the med-school their aiming for), usually in the 510+ area.
Scores don't mean anything if your 525+ scoring tutor can't relate to you in your struggles and where you're at, or what it's like to be scoring in the low 490s. Those scores don't mean anything if they can't teach well, or if it took them 8 months to get their scores there, whereas you only have 1-2 months. Knowing how to improve scores quickly is so important.
That's not to say we've never had students score 519+, because we have. It all depends on individual needs and goals. Whatever your goal is, we're happy to support it, even if that means getting you to a score that surpasses our own.
Lastly, would you really be disappointed if you scored a 515? What about a 510? We like to keep things real and would really enjoy working with you, if you do too!
By the way, if you wanted to be assigned to a 100th percentile scoring tutor, we'd be happy to do that for you (providing they're available).
Yes! When you click 'Book Now' on your desired tutoring session package, you'll see the option to pay in instalments. Also if you choose the "PayPal" option at checkout, you'll see an option to "Pay in 4" instalments, with no interest charge! You can learn more about that on this page.
Yes definitely! We've worked with many students who need MCAT accommodations and have guided them through that process as well. We understand how frustrating it might be when you're trying to make progress on the MCAT but feel like you're at a disadvantage. We're here to help you 'level the playing field' and get a competitive MCAT score :)
YES! We welcome and love working with nontraditional students. Several of the mentors on the team were also nontraditional students when taking the MCAT, so we can definitely relate. If you fall under the 'nontrad' category, your level of passion and dedication towards beating this exam inspires us. We've worked with many in the past in improving their scores and are happy to work with you too!
That's completely fine! If you just need help in CARS, we'll pair you with our best available CARS Master who scored 130+ in that section. Same goes for any other section. You can use all your sessions for focused help in just that one section. You make the rules - we don't enforce a specific template
