Premium MCAT Tutoring
Each Next Step tutor has been through a rigorous hiring process and training program to make sure they can very effectively help students with their MCAT test preparation in order to raise their scores. However, some parents and students have expressed a desire to work with our very best instructors who have scores in the 99th percentile of the exam and years of teaching experience. Our top instructors are available as part of our Premium Tutoring program.
The first step towards working with one of our premium MCAT tutors is a phone consultation with one of our Academic Managers. Fill out the form below to set up your consultation today:

Bryan is Next Step’s Academic Director and manages our MCAT team, nation-wide. He has been working in the test prep industry for nearly 14 years across a variety of companies and positions, but his love has always been working one-on-one with MCAT students. He has scored a 44 on the MCAT multiple times, including perfect 15’s in the Biological Sciences. In April 2015 Bryan took the new MCAT and scored a 525. Bryan is the author of Next Step’s MCAT materials. As Next Step’s most experienced tutor, Bryan is exceptionally selective about the students he personally takes on, never working with more than one (or occasionally two) at a time. Students that work with Bryan personally are also given access to Next Step’s in-development materials before they are published.
Here’s what Bryan’s last student said about him:
When I initially took the MCAT Diagnostic Test, I scored a 496. Then with Bryan’s help, I was able to get my score to a 512 (Chem 128, CARS 126, Bio 130, Psych 128). His daily schedule and valuable hints/tools really made the difference. Would recommend 100%!! It truly made the difference between medical school being a dream versus medical school being a reality. Next Step knows what they’re doing with a proven method. Would definitely recommend to anybody looking to improve their score.
Bryan takes only 2 students at a time (no more than 6 each year). Learn more about working with Bryan through our Elite MCAT Tutoring Program.
Anthony attended UMDNJ/Rutgers NJ Medical School and NJIT for MD and PhD degrees. As an undergraduate he majored in Computer Engineering before moving into rehabilitation medicine & research. He was a member of Tau Beta Pi Honor Society, the med student council and served as student AMA chapter secretary. As a non-traditional medical applicant Anthony is familiar with the hurdles that come with preparing to enter professional school. He was awarded a prestigious National Institutes of Health fellowship to fund his PhD and has published several papers in neurorehabilitation. Anthony is interested in creating customized rehabilitation methods of the hand/arm for patients suffering from neurological injury (stroke, Parkinsons, brain injury) His MCAT score qualifier is a 42, with 14’s in each section. He teaches and tutors in the NYC metro area and online. Anthony relishes the opportunity to design and implement the ideal combination of test methods and critical thinking strategies for each of his students. Anthony believes that much like rehabilitation, each course of action should take the needs of the individual into account, rather than a one-size-fits-all approach.
Here’s what Anthony’s last student said about him:
I think that Anthony was EXCELLENT!!! I really like how helpful they he was. I liked Anthony’s teaching style — he took his time and I didn’t feel rushed through the material. Here I come MCAT!

Philip graduated from the University of Missouri Kansas City with degrees in Biology and Chemistry and minored in Philosophy. He then spent four years at the University of Nebraska Medical Center where he received a full scholarship and stipend to obtain his Medical Degree and a PhD in Pharmaceutics and Experimental Neuroscience. He tutored for four years at the International Headquarters for Supplemental Instruction and then an additional 3 years teaching pre-health students at a major national test prep company before joining Next Step. Outside of the academic world, he enjoys camping, swing dancing, and banjo playing.
Here is what one of Phil’s students said about him:
Philip is great at taking complex topics and explaining them in ways that are easy to understand. I wish he would’ve been my tutor when I was taking physics in undergrad! After working with him, I increased my 2014 MCAT by 15 points. I am now an M1 at Washington University, and I couldn’t have done it without him!
Scott graduated from Williams College in 2013 as a double major in chemistry and Spanish. He is currently pursuing a Masters degree in Spain before beginning medical school at the University of Pennsylvania. He scored a 40Q (99th percentile) on his MCAT (14 PS, 12 VS, 14 BS). He has extensive tutoring experience at the high school through advanced college level, including work in Spanish, and the MCAT including a focus on chemistry and physiology. In an addition to a passion for the material tested on the MCAT, Scott really enjoys helping his students increase their understanding of difficult concepts and passages. When not tutoring, Scott loves spending time outdoors and works part-time on an ambulance.
Here’s what Scott’s last student said about him:
“I improved 18 points in 8 weeks, from a 503 to a 521! My goal was 515-516, and lots of people were telling me to aim lower. After Scott met with me once and saw how I worked and approached the test, he told me to go for my goal. He was a great teacher, particularly in chem and physics, which were my weaknesses. He also believed in me which made a big difference. I know this kind of score improvement is extremely rare, and I am simply elated!”

Brandon is a graduate of Washington University in St. Louis, where he majored in Biomedical Engineering. Brandon will be attending Weill Cornell Medical College in the fall of 2015. He has tutored and mentored students for 8 years in various capacities. Brandon scored a 42 on his own MCAT, including 99th percentile in the verbal reasoning. He enjoys tutoring because it allows him to use his own experiences to help others reach their academic goals. In his spare time, Brandon enjoys reading, playing the drums, and volunteering as a tutor for disadvantaged students.
Here is what one of Brandon’s students had to say about him:
Brandon was invaluable throughout the process and helped me really understand the material and why it was important. Every week he was patient and supportive and took time to explain concepts in various ways to ensure understanding. He never looked down at [me] for not grasping something “simple” and worked hard to make sure I left these sessions with confidence in my work. Additionally, Brandon was always cheerful and fully engaged during our sessions early on Friday mornings. He is a great student, teacher, and mentor and I highly recommend him.
