Kangsoo Y. says, "We just moved to the US from Korea and the change has been very tough for my kids. They are not familiar with the US school system and falling behind. I saw their confidence draining. But all of that changed when SoFlo came into the picture. To start, they gave a free assessment so they could figure out where my children were struggling. From there we had weekly tutoring sessions that my kids actually enjoy. I am seeing their confidence return and life in the US get better for them" Read more

i am an incoming grad student pursuing a master's degree in Latin American Studies at UCLA and graduated from UC Davis in 2019. Since graduating college, I have delved into the pharmaceutical field working as a clinical research coordinator. I am an expert in English/writing (elementary-college), history (World, United States, European, honors, college prep, AP), math (elementary, algebra I, geometry, trigonometry, AP Calculus BC), college admissions (the steps necessary to bypass the hectic admissions process barred by a lack of knowledge), and preparation with research/project creation in any level. I believe that education can be mastered

Being a teacher is my favorite job!

I've been teaching math for over twenty years now, and my experience gives me the skills I need to explain math to pretty much any student. I love my work and I'm very patient. I have a masters degree in math from the University of Missouri-Kansas City and I've taught at schools from San Pedro to Glendale (Kansas City too). I received a distinguished teaching award from El Camino College a couple years ago, so it's not just me that thinks I know what I'm doing. Let me know if you'd like to work with me. I like working with students, it's just a fun process. Math is an intimidating struggle for so many people, but it really doesn't have to be ...

I’ve been an all-purpose tutor since graduating Harvard University in 2013. I began with Franklin Educational Services in Los Angeles from 2014-2016, a company which emphasized techniques to work with students exhibiting attention deficit disorder, autism, and executive functioning issues. I worked from 2016-2020 with Smart Alec in NYC, with students ranging from middle-schoolers to attendants of elite academies to university students at USC, Brown, and Columbia. Since 2021, my educational work has been part-time, mixed in between film industry gigs as a producer. These part-time efforts have been focused largely on college applications and s

Hi there! I am a current student in UCI pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering. I have been tutoring for over 3 years now. I had taught many students ranging from elementary to college levels. My main subject is Math, however, I am also open to help out in other subjects. Why tutor? I enjoy teaching and connecting with students. I love to help students do well in their studies. They are the future of the nation after all. My goal as a tutor is not only to improve their grades, my goal is also to help students discover their passion for learning and improve their confidence in their own path. I look forward to connect and help you succeed

Your MCAT Tutoring questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Tutors.

How much does an MCAT tutor cost?

MCAT tutors charge an average of $50 to $150 per hour. Tutors provide personalized, one-on-one, or small group instruction to help you prepare for the MCAT. They may focus on test-taking strategies, review practice materials, and help you improve your performance on practice tests.

Some students hire a tutor who specializes in the subjects where they are weakest. For example, if chemistry is your lowest-scoring area, you may hire a tutor to help you with that section of the MCAT only. Some tutors may offer package deals for multiple sessions or long-term commitments.

What is the MCAT?

The MCAT is a standardized computer test that most medical schools require for admission. It is given throughout the year at Pearson VUE testing centers around the world. Medical schools use MCAT scores to gauge a student's readiness for the challenges of medical school. 

The 6-hour, 15-minute test has four multiple-choice sections that assess a student's knowledge of chemistry and physics, biology and biochemistry, psychology and social behavior, and critical reasoning skills.

How long is the MCAT?

The MCAT is an all-day exam. The actual seated time for the exam is 7 hours 30 minutes, which includes instructions and breaks in between sections. While these breaks are optional, they are recommended. The actual testing time is 6 hours and 15 minutes long for the 4 sections.

What is a good MCAT score?

A good MCAT score depends on the school you want to attend. The median MCAT score is 500 on a scale from 472 to 528. The highest-ranked med schools typically have higher average score requirements. Less competitive medical schools take students with lower scores.

Most students attempt to score as well as or better than the average score of admitted students. The higher the average score at your preferred school, the higher you will need to score to have a chance at admission to their program.

What is on the MCAT?

The MCAT has 4 sections designed to test your science knowledge, including:

  • Biological and Biochemical foundations of Living Systems– This 95 minute section includes 59 multiple-choice questions about biology, organic chemistry, and inorganic chemistry concepts.
  • Chemical and Physical foundations of Biological Systems– This 95 minute section includes 59 multiple-choice questions about biology, organic and inorganic chemistry, and physics concepts.
  • Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior Section – This 95 minute section includes 59 multiple-choice questions about psychology, sociology, and biology concepts.
  • Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills Section – This 90 minute section includes 53 multiple-choice questions that test your comprehension, analysis, and reasoning skills by asking you to analyze information provided in written passages.

How hard is the MCAT?

The difficulty of the MCAT depends on how well you are prepared, your familiarity with the test content, and your abilities as a test-taker. The test is considered difficult because it is a full day exam covering a vast number of scientific topics.

The test is high stakes since the score can determine your admission to medical school. This pressure to do well, along with the time-pressure of the test itself, make it one of the hardest exams you will ever take.

How many times can you take the MCAT?

Students are permitted to take the MCAT 7 times in their lifetime. Additionally, your attempts are limited to 3 times in a single testing year, or 4 times in a two-year period. No shows or void attempts are included in these limits.

A voided attempt is when you choose at the end of the exam to not have your attempt scored. Students use this option when they feel they performed poorly and do not want that score to count on their permanent record. Instead, they void the exam and are not scored. The test attempt counts toward the annual limit, but the possibly low score is not recorded for medical schools to see.

How to save money on the MCAT?

Here are some helpful suggestions that can save you money on your MCAT costs:

  • Apply for financial aid through the AAMC Fee Assistance Program.
  • Keep your original test date and testing site to avoid costly rescheduling fees. If you must make changes, do it as early as possible to avoid higher fees.
  • Use free or low-cost study materials rather than more costly MCAT tutors or prep courses.
  • Prepare well to ensure a good score on your first test attempt. Test attempts are costly and limited.

What questions should I ask an MCAT tutor?

Some questions you should ask a potential MCAT tutor include:

  • How much is your tutoring rate per hour?
  • Do you offer packages or discounts for long-term commitments?
  • What is your educational background?
  • Have you taken the MCAT yourself?
  • How long have you been an MCAT tutor?
  • Have you been able to help students improve their MCAT scores?
  • What is your teaching style?
  • Do you tailor your approach to my learning style?
  • What study materials do you include?
  • Will you provide practice tests to gauge my improvement?
  • What is your availability? Will we meet in person or online?

My daughter had to write a pre-algebra test in a few days and I was concerned she was struggling. I contacted SoFlo online, expressed my concern and in spite of the tight schedule they moved things around to accommodate my daughter. I witnessed the session and it’s the best thing since sliced bread. I love the teaching method, and that my daugher was offered multiple methods to solve the same problem. I recommend SoFlo highly!
