  5. A few additional notes about our service
    • Session Length: Each session lasts at least 1 hour, but many of our tutors find it beneficial to have longer sessions. You and your tutor can decide on the tutoring session length. Sessions lengths are rounded to the nearest quarter hour (ie if your session lasted 1 hour 42 minutes, it’ll be rounded to 1.75 hours)
    • Session Type: We have multiple types of sessions to help you improve your academic performance (see page 3: Session Description). You can request any type of session you’d like with your tutor
    • Changing of Tutors: If you find that you and your tutor don’t gel during your first session, just let us know! We can always reassign you a new tutor
    • Multiple Tutors: We have multiple tutors who can help you! If you need more sessions or sessions closer together than your current tutor can offer, let us know and we’ll assign you a second tutor. Sometimes we assign you two tutors right away to help improve your score
    • Score-Improvement Guarantee (only applicable for students on the Silver or Gold Tutoring Package). To qualify the following must be completed prior to beginning tutoring:
      • Prior to your first tutoring session, you MUST a screenshot of your most recent NBME with your name, test date, score, and score-legend visible to [email protected]
      • After you finish your tutoring hours, you MUST take an NBME exam within 1 week of your final tutoring session
      • If the score hasn’t improved, submit another screenshot with your name, test date, score, and score-legend visible to [email protected]
      • We’ll get you set up for an additional 10 tutoring hours at no cost
    • Money-Back Guarantee a. We want you to succeed, period. If you are not happy or your tutoring is not going how you’d like after your first two sessions, just let us know. We will make every effort to make sure things go well, or we’ll refund you for unused hours!
