Achieve The Score You Want With OAT Tutoring

Dedicated Private OAT Tutoring Online

Whether you're looking for a 1:1 OAT tutor or a group tutoring option, Varsity Tutors will set you up with the academic support you need to reach for your full potential. The OAT (or Optometry Admission Test) can be a challenging exam, especially if you don't have too much free time to prepare.

Luckily, our Live Learning Platform allows you to benefit from face-to-face instruction without the hassle of a commute, making OAT tutoring more accessible than ever before. Here are some of the features of our Live Learning Platform:

  • Automatic session recording
  • Video chat
  • Integrated practice problems
  • Mobile-friendly
  • Virtual whiteboard

Boost Your OAT Score

An OAT tutor can design a study plan around your specific needs and goals to improve your study efficiency. If you are confident about the assessment's Survey of the Natural Sciences section but less confident about the Quantitative Reasoning section, your instructor can focus on concepts such as absolute value and data sufficiency during your study sessions.

Likewise, you can work on your test-taking technique with a private tutor. Since the entire OAT uses a multiple-choice format, your instructor could show you how to use the info in one item to answer another, for instance.

Best Ways To Prep For the OAT

The OAT covers biology, general and organic chemistry, physics, reading comprehension, and mathematics, so trying to study for it on your own can feel extremely daunting. Thankfully, an OAT coach can break each section down to make it easier to study.

A software-based test prep option could probably do the same, but you would be stuck with a rigid curriculum that cannot be adapted to your needs. In contrast, you are always in complete control over what you study with a private tutor. If you're struggling with rotational motion or the differences between units and vectors, your instructor can provide fresh explanations and examples until you're ready to move on.

How much does an OAT tutor cost?

The price of formal OAT tutoring depends on your unique needs, including how often you plan to meet your tutor and the specific material you'd like to review. For example, you may pay a different hourly rate for regular study sessions every Monday evening than you would for a cram session a few days before you sit for the exam.

If you wish to maximize the value of your money, we can also arrange group tutoring or sign you up for our OAT class. Contact us today to learn more about the benefits each of these options can provide.

How do I choose an OAT tutor?

Choosing a great tutor can be tough, but Varsity Tutors makes the process as easy as possible. We maintain an extensive network of well-vetted instructors, allowing our Educational Directors to leverage advanced tutor-matching tools to find any student a great tutor.

Your instructor will combine excellent communication skills with a thorough understanding of everything OAT, so you can trust that all of the information they share with you is correct and up-to-date. Your instructor can also identify why you may be struggling with a type of question and take whatever corrective action may be necessary.

Are OAT tutors worth it?

Working with a private tutor can help students improve their test scores by a whopping 12 percent, potentially helping an application stand out on a crowded desk. Certified optometrists make an average of about $117,500 per year, according to July 2020 data on GlassDoor.

Passing the OAT doesn't guarantee that you'll make that much money, but it is the first step in becoming an optometrist.

A private OAT tutor can also help you improve your broader academic skills. For instance, learning how to use a highlighter effectively for the OAT's Reading Comprehension section can help you understand all of the scientific literature you'll read in the future. Contact us to get started today!

How can an OAT tutor help you?

The Optometry Admission Test (OAT) is an important part of the application process to attend optometry school. This test is designed specifically to provide optometry education programs with a means to assess any applicant's potential for success. If you are struggling to prepare for the exam, Varsity Tutors can help you find an experienced OAT tutor who can help you.

The OAT is administered on a computer and is comprised of four sections lasting a total of five hours and five minutes, including an optional tutorial and break. The first section, Survey of the Natural Sciences, consists of 100 multiple-choice questions about biology (40%), general chemistry (30%), and organic chemistry (30%). An experienced tutor can show you how to use this section against itself by eliminating incorrect responses even if you're not sure what the correct one is, improving the likelihood that any educated guesses are correct.

Recent Tutoring Session Reviews

Online OAT Tutoring review by Matthew
This session was an overview of remaining major concepts. The student is getting a bit nervous and hence did not do all of her homework (a bit of test fright). We talked about general strategies to keep up confidence. Following that, we worked on general classes of problems from probabilities. Likewise, we worked on functions and sequences. The pertinent problems were assigned, as well as some ancillary problems concerning number properties and coordinate geometry.

Online OAT Tutoring review by Steven
The student and I continued our exam tutoring. In this session we mainly focused on arithmetic. This included how to solve absolute values and inequalities. We also practiced functions, formulas, and sequences. Once again the student was very quick to pick up the concepts and apply them to difficult questions. If she is able to retain all of this knowledge she will perform very well on the test.

Online OAT Tutoring review by Bryan
Like the last session, we did one hour of quantitative and one hour of verbal. Again, the student is definitely improving with the recall of his math fundamentals. He follows all of the methods to answer the questions, we just have to work on his ability to pick out the right mathematical tools for a given problem. That is an easy thing to pick up, and I see him garnering a TON of help from these sessions. On the verbal side, he continues to show exceptional ability. I have no concerns with how well he can do once we refine his techniques a little bit.

Online OAT Tutoring review by Iris
The pupil and I covered introductory information on GRE test-taking, and his goals for the test. We then went over questions from his practice test and discussed strategies for sentence-equivalence question types. His assignment for Thursday is to practice what we went over and to go through the 100 top math concepts and highlight the ones he is unfamiliar with.

Online OAT Tutoring review by Puneet
We covered magnetism and practice problems for the assessment. We had a talk and decided to switch to Organic Chemistry for the time being, so that it aligns with the other work he's doing for his organic chemistry class.
