How can MCAT tutoring help you succeed?
If you are a pre-med student preparing to graduate, then you are also likely preparing to apply to medical schools. This means you will need to take the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT). Studying for this test alone can be an overwhelming task. Varsity Tutors can help you find an experienced MCAT tutor in Denver, Colorado, who can work with you around your schedule. Your tutor understands that right now is a busy time for you, and therefore, you can choose the place and time that works best for you to meet with them. This may include online sessions as well.
A private Denver, Colorado, MCAT tutor can explain to you what to expect on test day and how the test is structured. Many students experience test anxiety before an important exam due to not knowing what to expect as well as the fact that each section of the exam is timed. Because of this, you and your tutor may decide to work through practice exams together, while your tutor times each section. On the day of the test you will have 95 minutes to complete every section but the critical analysis and reasoning skills portion (for which you will have 90 minutes). By going over the sections while your tutor times you, you can get practice taking the test in an environment that mirrors that of exam day.
This also provides an opportunity for your tutor to teach you valuable pacing techniques. Once you have completed each section, you and your tutor can score them together. This means that you can receive an in-depth explanation of answers you may have gotten wrong. While you can check your answers yourself with answer keys for practice tests, working with a private tutor allows you to have a mini-lesson on each area you struggled with. This also allows you to ask as many questions as you need.
Because you are the only student working with your Denver MCAT tutor during your sessions, you can also pick and choose the areas you cover. For example, you may decide that multiple concepts in the chemical and physical foundations of biological systems section trip you up, but you do just fine with social foundations of behavior concepts. In this case, you and your tutor can skip the section you do well on and focus your time and energy on the section or sections you struggle with.
Don't wear yourself out stressing about how to prepare for the MCAT on your own. Contact Varsity Tutors today for assistance finding a skilled and experienced MCAT tutor in Denver.
