Medical School, USMLE and COMLEX Tutoring

Your USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 CK scores are extremely important, so you want to ensure that you put yourself in a position to succeed. Having a solid understanding of basic physiology and medical concepts is key to performing well on the USMLE exams. The best way to learn these concepts is during your preclinical years. Several of our tutors have worked with students throughout their preclinical courses and these students went on to score very well on the USMLE exams.

As an IMG, your USMLE Step 1 and 2 CK scores play an even larger role than those of a U.S. graduate. In fact, these exams are the perfect opportunity to demonstrate that you are capable of performing at a high level and that you should be considered above all other applicants. In order to perform well on the USMLE exams, we will ensure you have a solid understanding of basic physiology and medical concepts. Additionally, several of our tutors have extensive experience working with international students.

No, we do not offer in-person classes because we believe that it is an ineffective use of your time. Instead, we offer virtual tutoring sessions that can be done anywhere in the world with our video conferencing software. Additionally, each session and lesson is tailored directly to your individual needs.

We pair students with tutors who have similar availability and interests. Students are welcome to switch to a different tutor if they desire. If there is a particular tutor that you would like to work with, then we will make an effort to pair you with them when availability allows.

Tutors who have worked with MedSchoolCoach for an extended period of time, have an impeccable record of success, and have extensive experience working with students who are in challenging situations or have specific needs are designated as Master Tutors.

One of the benefits of personalized tutoring is that you will be able to directly coordinate with your tutor to schedule sessions. These sessions may be during the day or at night, depending on what works best for you and your tutor.

We have a variety of options in order to best meet your needs. We offer three packages (Bronze, Silver, and Gold) and can arrange larger packages as well. We also offer hourly tutoring if desired. If you would like some advice on what package will best fit your needs, schedule a free consultation with a member of our Enrollment Team.

We offer free 15-minute phone consultations with the Director of USMLE Tutoring who can answer any questions that you may have about MedSchoolCoach USMLE Tutoring.
