Written by an experienced Noodle Pro who has hundreds of hours of experience teaching the MCAT, this document is a useful tool for students at any phase of their prep process.
Whether you are concerned about a specific subject or section, struggling with self-discipline and study scheduling, or looking for practice problems and accompanying instruction that will reflect the difficulty-level and style of the recently updated MCAT, it pays to work with tutors who truly speak your language.
Noodle Pros tutors have 15-30 years of private MCAT tutoring experience, including experience designing MCAT practice sections and diagnostic content for major test prep companies. Where many classes, online instructors, and 1:1 companies provide instruction that is rudimentary compared to your high-level pre-med coursework, many of us have taught at the college level, and provide vigorous individualized instruction that matches that of top university professors.
Noodle Pros MCAT students are academic achievers who attend some of the best schools in the country. They have worked hard on their medical school package, and deserve the best of the best when it comes to academic help and test prep. As industry leading tutors, we are honored to help MCAT students achieve their goals, and we consider it a privilege to aid in their future successes.
Our bespoke tutoring services range in price from $200- $500 per hour.
Testimonials from Noodle Pros MCAT students:
“My tutor worked with me on biology for the MCAT. She was absolutely incredible and I would hire her again without a doubt. She helped me score in the 99th percentile on the MCAT with a near perfect score on biology. Her knowledge of the subject matter combined with her ability to teach test taking skills made her a great tutor. She defines exceptional tutoring and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor”
“Our Noodle Pro was an exceptional tutor! He tutored me one on one on my weakest section of the MCAT which was general chemistry and physics (two classes that I hated). My score in that section went from a 120 to a 127! I could not have gotten that score without my tutor’s help. Thanks to him, I scored well on my MCAT and got accepted into medical school.”
“Our Noodle Pros tutor had a MAJOR impact on my daughter's success. She tells everyone she could not have done it without the knowledge, tips, and strategies that she had acquired through his tutoring services. He was truly exceptional. We are so grateful to him for my daughter getting into Med School. The day she got the call that she had been accepted, I immediately called him to thank him because he had played a tremendous part.”
