Frequently Asked Questions

Determining if tutoring is right for you can be a unique challenge that requires an honest look at your academic strengths and weaknesses. Sometimes figuring out where you need help is harder than receiving it. At Medical School Companion, we make both as painless as possible. Our tutors are highly trained to be able to determine what aspects of learning, either content or study strategy,  we can help you improve on.

Through a FREE 30 minute consultation with our tutoring staff, you can hit the ground running by learning how to study efficiently and effectively. With one-on-one tutoring, you get a personalized academic coach to guide you through those tricky concepts to develop a deeper, stronger understanding of the core concepts tested on exams.

While embarking on tutoring can seem like a daunting task, at MSC we make it easy! First, FREE 30 minute consultation with our tutoring staff.

Our FREE 30 minute consultation works by you telling us a bit about yourself! We use that information to set you up with a member of our tutoring team that best fits your needs.

We offer a FREE 30 minute consultation where you’ll meet with one of our exemplary tutors to diagnose your strengths, and weaknesses, and come up with a game plan on how to best coach you towards academic success.

You are matched with a tutor based on the information you provide us during the consultation scheduling process. We match you based on what we believe will be the most beneficial to you and your learning style, strengths, weaknesses and where you are in your medical career. However you are more than welcome to request a specific tutor at any time. Here at MSC we work for you!

Our tutors are an elite group of students and physicians who have excelled during their time in medical school and careers. We chose our tutoring staff based on how well they scored in their board exams, their teaching ability and interpersonal skills.

A typical session lasts for an hour between you and your tutor and will focus on the specific content of your choice. We teach in the learning style that most benefits you because everyone learns differently. The same content can be taught different ways to different tutees. Regardless, every session concludes with you achieving a goal: a deeper understanding of that topic.
Anywhere and everywhere! All of our tutoring sessions are virtual via video meeting platform, so you can master anything from the comfort of your home!

Absolutely! Part of our duty as tutors is to not only help you understand the content, but also help you create the optimal study schedule that works best for you, using the material and resources that we believe can help you master every learning objective tested in school exams and board exams.

As often as you’d like! However, we recommend meeting twice a week. This typically creates a well rounded ratio of individual learning, learning and application paired with your tutor, and individual application of what you’ve learned that week.
