MCAT Strategy Personal Coaching Program

Course Description:

The MCAT Strategy Personal Coaching is provided by Jay Cutts, the lead author of the Barron’s MCAT prep book. The program prepares students for the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT).

The program includes up to fifteen hours of personal coaching help for a period of six months from the date of registration. Coaching can be used for any aspect of the MCAT other than science content review. You get science review help in the classes. Up to one hour of the ten coaching hours can be used for admissions issues other than the MCAT.

This program also includes twenty eight hours of classroom-style content and strategy review via video conferencing (such as Zoom), in seven 4-hour sessions. The classroom sessions take place during the summer.

Mr. Cutts works with you directly by phone and video conferencing. He gives you specific assignments, reviews your progress, and teaches you advanced strategies. He creates a study plan for you and advises you on all of the aspects of admissions. Students typically work with him once or twice each week. Sessions can be as long or short as needed.

Enrollment in this course includes registration in the STEPS to the MCAT program, an online study system. STEPS also puts you in touch with potential study partners.

You will learn how to control and use your time more effectively on all sections of the test, as well as how to avoid the most common timing pitfalls. You will learn how to skim CARS passages for structure and tools for distinguishing between two very close answer choices.

You will learn how to efficiently set up passages on the science sections and how to skim for the essential elements of the passage. You will learn how to gain points through testing strategies such as process of elimination and estimation. You will learn how to effectively read graphs and charts and use logic to get correct answers. You will learn a wide range of scientific problem solving tools. You will learn tools for working two answer choices against each other to find the correct answer.

The strategies taught in this program have been tested and refined over 30 years of test prep experience with over a thousand students worldwide.

Registration is ongoing throughout 2021.
