Who is the tutor & what are her credentials?
Prep For Success' takes pride in giving you the best quality tutors, which is why we only hire individuals above a 90th percentile, if not a perfect score. Toni has received over a 92nd percentile score on the MCAT and is accepted to Medical School! Additionally, she has been tutoring for several years and has proficient knowledge of all the topics on the exam.
What is the typical schedule and how long are the lessons?
Typically our lessons are 2 hours as we find that is the ultimate amount of time to get a bunch of material done. Within the first hour we review the homework, and the second hour is dedicated to teaching the next topic! However, if 1 hour or 1.5 hours is best for budgeting or scheduling we can gladly accommodate. On average most students prepare 2-3 months prior to their exam by doing 1 to 2 lessons per week. We can always adjust accordingly if a student is moving slower or faster through the material. Typically the first month is teaching content, the second month is timed drills so they are able to complete the material in the given time of the test, and the last month is practice tests.
What sets Prep For Success apart? Can I read reviews?
First and foremost, Prep For Success has over one hundred 5 star reviews on thumbtack and google, so the reviews speak for themselves as our clients are very happy with the service we provide! One main feature that sets Prep For Success apart from other companies is that the founders of the company are fully invested in the company and work as tutors as well. This allows them to not have a disconnected experience from what the students need and be fully invested in all the student’s successes. This also gives our company the small mom-and-pop feel unlike Kaplan, Princeton Review, Varsity Tutors, or any other larger company. Also, our tutors have a wide range of experiences such as perfect scores, over 10 years of experience, experience working with students that have learning disabilities, and so much more. Additionally, Prep for Success focuses on tips and tricks as well as content, rather than some other companies that just focus on one side of the spectrum. Meaning, many other companies will just give the student practice test after practice test; however, we truly believe in teaching all the content first and then delving into timed drills, and then applying it to the actual test. No sense testing over and over again material that the student does or doesn’t know.
