Marcelle G. says, "True experts! SoFlo knows the SAT incredibly well and was able to pass on lessons and tricks to my son who improved 310 points on his SAT from a 1240 to a 1550 over the course of 4 months. SoFlo gave my son a ton of curriculum. He needed a set structure and study plan to succeed, otherwise it would be hard to keep him focused. Every week he was studying from real SAT past exams, a free video course, and plenty of 1-on-1 tutoring to give him the skills to be break 1500. My son is very bright but not confident, and his tutor Brian worked with him to gain confidence and have the right mindset for success. SoFlo has changed the direction of my son’s life and now he will have so many more opportunities. I’m so thankful to have found and his team. They are amazing!!" Read more

Fortunately, we found Honors Prep and they were able to assign her a tutor who specialized in students with her needs and they were able to get her on a study plan that made a HUGE difference. She wound up getting offered a spot at HSMSE :)" Read more

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?

Reviews for New York MCAT tutoring services

Recent success stories from people in the New York area.
Chloe T.
Kourosh has been an absolute game-changer for my daughter's middle school math journey. Initially, I was hesitant about online tutoring, especially considering my daughter's learning challenges, but Kourosh proved me wrong from the get-go. Despite my daughter's struggles with dyslexia, Kourosh tailored his teaching approach to suit her unique needs flawlessly. He engages her in one-on-one sessions, leveraging her preferred learning methodt of reading aloud. This individualized attention would have been nearly impossible in a traditional classroom setting. Kourosh not only teaches the material effectively but also ensures that my daughter retains and comprehends it thoroughly. His method of initiating note-taking reinforces key concepts and helps solidifies her understanding. In just one hour with Kourosh, my daughter learns more than she did in an entire month of class. I highly recommend Lila Tutoring. Kourosh gets 5 stars.

TutorsPro is a life savor! There are so many positives! First, their tutors are very flexible with their time. There are numerous occasions where I need more time to work with my tutor or I have a conflict with a session, but the tutors always work with my schedule to make sure I never feel behind in class. They are willing to sacrifice extra time out of their life to make room for students to make sure they feel comfortable in any subject. Additionally, they are very easy to communicate with. I have never had a problem where we are not on the same page with session times. They are very happy to communicate with us and they always make sure there is room for a session. Lastly, most importantly, they always teach in a way where all students can understand. My grades would significantly be lower without a tutor in TutorsPro. I highly recommend TutorsPro if students want to be successful in a specific class.

A Pleasure to Work With! Olya is a great tutor! She helped my daughter with her essay in a very short time. She worked not only during the time she spent with my daughter but also edited and offered suggestions in between sessions. I would definitely recommend Olya because she is patient, kind and encouraging and knows how to get the details out of anyone. I am happy to say that my daughter got into her dream school, which is Villanova! Thank you, Olya!!!

My son originally took an SAT course with one of the bigger test prep companies (I won't name names) to prepare for the SAT. Unfortunately, it wasn't rigorous enough for him and the instruction tended to cater to the lowest-common-denominator. So, we enlisted Honors Prep to work with our son one-on-one for the SAT. I am so happy we made this decision. Honors Prep paired him with a great tutor who was very communicative throughout the whole process and it made a big difference for his score. If you're looking for a quality SAT tutor, I cannot recommend Honors Prep highly enough!

I love the one on one instruction. After coming out of a pandemic my 10 year old daughter really needed a kind adult to interact with. To give her back the confidence she had before to speak up in person.
