Why 1-on-1 tutoring?

Students learn better from individual attention. Prep courses curriculum was designed around the “average” student as it has to be for a class of 20 students. However, not all students are average.  Students who started under that average often got lost, as the pace of the class zoomed by them. On the other hand high-performing students looking to break into the 90th percentile are bored to tears. Often students fall into both camps — lost on one topic while completely bored in an area they had mastered. That contrasted with my work in one-on-one tutoring environments. When students work with a personal instructor, they move at the students’ pace. This allows students to focus on areas where they need the most help leading to a more efficient, and effective test prep experience.

Our MCAT Testing Platform

Written by the experts

Next Step’s MCAT diagnostic was developed by our senior MCAT directors, Bryan Schnedeker (525 MCAT score, over 10 years MCAT teaching experience) and Dr. Anthony Lafond (MD/PhD, 42 MCAT, over 10 years MCAT teaching experience).

Simulate the revised MCAT

As you likely know, the revised MCAT has made significant changes. Most importantly, a new behavioral sciences section will test your knowledge of basic psychology, sociology, and experimental design.

Receive specific feedback on your weak areas

Our exam generates a thorough report covering your performance in all the major content areas so you know where to focus your studies.

The first full length is on us

We are so confident that we have the best full length MCAT exams available that we are the only test prep company that will give you one for free.  Our practice tests have been built by our team of MCAT experts.

  • Built from the ground up for the new exam. The passages mimic the experimental focus and bio-heavy nature of the revised exam, with no “re-used” passages that were written for the old test.
  • Follows the time limits and formats of the new exam. Unlike other prep providers, every paid Next Step MCAT practice test (excluding our free diagnostic) provides a full-length, seven hour long test day experience.
  • Statistical performance breakdowns. After taking the MCAT practice test, understand how you performed in each section, broken down by AAMC’s topic area sub-categories and cognitive skill categories.
  • Simulation of the new Psychological Foundations section. Our passages, written by professional psychologists working with veteran MCAT instructors, provide the most realistic and challenging practice possible for the new psychology and sociology content.

MCAT Question of the Day

If you are studying for the MCAT, you know how critical it is to practice on MCAT-specific questions. Studying the sciences isn’t enough — 510+ scorers also know how to put that knowledge to good use. Each MCAT question of the day was written by our team of MCAT teaching experts, led by Bryan, our National MCAT Director, who has taught the MCAT for over a decade and scored 44 on the exam. We’ll cover all 4 major MCAT science topics: Biology, Gen Chem, Orgo, and Physics — as well as questions on the behavioral sciences section. You will also get access to thorough explanations of the concepts and answer choices, so if you miss a problem you’ll be able to understand why.
