About Fiona

I view teaching/education as my calling, by that I mean it is a profession that deserves life-time effort and dedication. I ascribe who I am and what I have accomplished to my parents and all my teachers. They instilled knowledge, the skill to learn, and the moral compass in me, which transformed m

Highly unprofessional. Doesn’t know the subject well didn’t help my son at all. Not accommodating with the student’s schedule. Pls don’t waste money with her as your teacher.

I enjoy having Fiona as a tutor for both chemistry and geometry. She is kind and makes the material easier to understand. Also, she is patient and takes her time in explaining the concepts to me, step by step. I love how she types some parts of the problems in the chat box. ~Genesis C.

Studying is serious business. We will write essays. We will analyze passages. We will laugh in the face of all that is boring about standardized tests.

Ultimately, my paradigm as a teacher will be to make myself progressively unnecessary.

About Simeon

The most important attributes of any teacher are empathy and patience. I currently attend Harvard University and work as a professional writer and tutor. I've lived all over the United States, although I grew up in Scotland of all places. My scores on the SAT and ACT were perfect (1600 and 36 re

Words cannot express how awesome Simeon is....but here is an attempt. As parents, my wife and I cannot say enough great things about Simeon. Our child was preparing for his second attempt at the SAT's. Our child has a 4.0 GPA but did not do as well as he would have liked on the SAT's his first time. Our son was hesitant at first to work with a tutor since he thought he could prepare on his own and improve his score but as parents, we decided he needed outside help. That's when we found Simeon. Our son not only increased his SAT scores by almost 100 points in a very short window, but he extremely enjoyed his time with Simeon. Now that he and Simeon no longer meet on a weekly basis our son misses his time with Simeon. Simeon is extremely intelligent and has a way of explaining the concepts in a manner that anyone can understand. Simeon truly cares about the students he works with. We have another child entering high school next year and you better believe if he needs any tutoring Simeon will be getting a call.
Thelma A.
Very intellectual and patient ... Cares and wanted to help .
Sadie
Simeon has been an absolutely invaluable resource for my SAT prep. His encouragement is appropriately supplemented by challenging material and (appropriately) challenging expectations. He manages to make studying for the SAT fun rather than a laborious task and I could not recommend him more.

My son took Laurel ‘a writing lesson yesterday and he likes the teacher. He realized his problems in writing. Today, when he was doing his homework, he told me that he applied the skills Laurel taught him to his writing. Thank you very much. I hope he can learn more from you.

Private MCAT Teacher

I have a degree in Behavioral Neuroscience, so I have the educational background for all subjects of this test.

In addition, I have over six years of experience teaching/tutoring all MCAT subjects when I worked for a national test prep company. I've taught over 1200 students in the classroom setting and tutored over 110 students one-on-one.

I can help you with the new MCAT format that consists of biology, biochem, organic chem, general chem, physics, sociology, psychology, or the critical analysis and reading section (verbal).

The first thing I identify for MCAT tutoring is if the student needs help with content, pacing, or the format of the exam. From there, I develop a customized plan to help the student bridge any weaknesses and maximize score gains.

About Aalok

My name is Aalok and I am a full time professional tutor. I can help students who are struggling, students who are looking to excel, and everyone else in between. I strive for complete satisfaction and never charge for a session unless you are completely satisfied. I've even worked with other t

"Awesome tutor! Breaks down concepts to make it easily digestible and works with your schedule. He gives you great tips that you can't learn from a book. He is very laid back and that helps with the crazy chaos of MCAT studying. Overall, well rounded in the subjects of the MCAT and would work with him again in the future if I needed. I would defintely recommend him for future MCAT test takers."

About Mcat

Developed by the Association of American Medical Colleges, the Medical College Admissions Test is used to predict prospective students' likelihood of success in medical school. For over 90 years, this standardized, multiple-choice exam has been a trusted part of the medical school admissions process.

Almost all the medical schools in both the United States and Canada require applicants to sit for the MCAT. A large portion of graduate programs and health profession schools also accept MCAT scores. As a result, about 58,000 prospective medical students take the exam each year. 

Why Sign Up for an MCAT Prep Course?

Medical school admissions officials take MCAT results seriously, giving scores weight in competitive admissions decisions. Applicants should prepare for the MCAT adequately. Regardless of smarts, students shouldn't rely on their wits to earn high scores. You'll be most successful if you know what to expect, how to approach the exam, and get used to working through its timed sections. 

Studying with a private MCAT tutor will give you the opportunity to get used to the format of the exam and focus on the subjects that need the most improvement. With thorough preparation, you'll approach your test day with confidence. 

The Best Way to Prepare for the MCAT and What You'll Study in MCAT Prep Courses

You can find plenty of free MCAT lessons and prep materials online, but the best way to prepare for the test is by studying with a private MCAT teacher. In private preparation sessions, you'll receive your instructor's undivided attention and the kind of personalized instruction that simply isn't available with online preparation materials or in larger study groups. In MCAT lessons, you'll receive immediate feedback, overcoming challenges and improving your scores fast!

Plus, every private tutoring session is different. Private teachers design course content to meet each student's needs, taking into account your preferred learning styles and personal challenges. You'll benefit from the opportunity to focus on the subjects you need to improve the most. You'll also have a syllabus that keeps you on track, ensuring you'll be well-prepared by the time of your exam. 

Sample Curriculum for Beginner MCAT Preparation

At the beginning of your MCAT prep courses, your tutor will establish your starting point and reasonable goals based on the amount of time you have for preparation and your initial scores on a practice MCAT exam. You'll begin by working on the subjects that require the most improvement. In your first courses, your teacher might cover the following topics:

  • Acquire a baseline score by taking a practice test in a setting that mimics the real exam
  • Set a personal test score goal
  • Identify subjects that need the most improvement
  • Outline a strategy to boost your score by the date of your MCAT

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate MCAT Preparation

As you become more and more familiar with the MCAT, you'll focus on learning unique approaches to each section of the exam. You'll practice strategies for taking the test and strive toward improving your scores on each section. Your teacher might cover the following subjects:

  • Introduction to strategies for taking the MCAT
  • Practice deductive reasoning and process of elimination strategies for multiple-choice questions
  • Learn what to expect from each section of the MCAT
  • Focus on improving your weakest areas

Sample Curriculum for Advanced MCAT Preparation

As the day of your MCAT approaches, your teacher will become increasingly focused on helping you prepare for the actual test day. You'll work to increase your confidence and maximize scores by reinforcing everything you've learned and reviewing past mistakes on practice tests. Your tutor might cover the following topics:

  • Review and understand previous mistakes made on practice tests
  • Learn how to reduce your anxiety during the exam
  • Practice time-management and learn how to prioritize questions on a computer-based exam
  • Take a final practice test to see how you've improved and boost your confidence

Get MCAT Help from an MCAT Tutor Near You

If you're preparing for the MCAT, you'll get the most out of your study time when you have a private tutor. Finding an MCAT teacher on TakeLessons is easy. A simple search will direct you to a list of highly qualified and experienced tutors who offer MCAT lessons for adults online and in person. (Since the MCAT is intended to measure the aptitude of prospective medical students, MCAT classes for children aren't typically offered.) Before you select a teacher, we recommend browsing several tutor profiles and reading reviews left by other prospective medical students. 

The cost of MCAT classes varies, but TakeLessons teachers base their rates on the length and frequency of tutoring sessions. With such a large selection of tutors, it's easy to find someone who fits your budget and your schedule. Plus, you'll find that investing in private MCAT tutoring pays off, as it boosts your confidence and scores, greatly improving your chances of admission to even the most competitive medical schools.
