If you are planning to enroll in a medical school such as the University of Colorado School of Medicine and you need some extra help studying for the MCAT, Varsity Tutors can set you up with the Boulder MCAT tutoring that best suits your needs. The MCAT, or Medical College Admission Test, is a standardized test that is used to gauge the skills and knowledge that prospective medical students need to succeed in college and their medical career. Nearly every medical school in the United States and many medical schools in Canada require their applicants to submit their MCAT scores, so there is often a lot of pressure to perform well on this exam. While you may have learned much of what you need to know to study for the exam in your college courses, Boulder MCAT tutors can still help you better understand the more challenging material and keep you organized and on task during your studies.

How is Boulder MCAT tutoring different from classroom learning?

Even though you can learn most of what you will need to know about completing the MCAT from traditional classroom learning, there are some big differences between learning in a classroom and studying with Boulder MCAT tutors. The biggest difference is that Boulder MCAT tutoring allows you to work one-on-one with a single tutor as opposed to someone who has to teach an entire class. There are certainly some great teachers who can help their students prepare for the MCAT, but it's still easy for a student to be lost in the shuffle when they are in a larger class. Not everyone learns well from group discussions and lectures, but that's essentially what you will get in a traditional classroom setting. That kind of teaching style isn't ideal for someone who might be a more visual learner or someone who requires hands-on experience to understand certain concepts. On the other hand, the best Boulder MCAT tutors can find out what teaching style works best for their students and develop a personalized lesson plan based around it. For example, you might find that you have trouble retaining information that is presented to you in a lecture or discussion, but you might do better with more hands-on lessons or visual learning materials such as flashcards. A private instructor can catch on to that and adjust their lessons to suit you.

Boulder MCAT tutors may also be able to help you better understand the format of the MCAT itself. The MCAT is a computer-based standardized test that is made up of four sections, each of which has its own time limit, between 53 and 59 multiple-choice questions, and several passage-based sets of questions. The entire exam takes six hours and 15 minutes to complete. It can feel a bit overwhelming for those who don't know what to expect, even if they have a good handle on the material that is covered by the exam. While your private instructor's main responsibility will most likely be to help you study the material that will be covered by the MCAT, they can also go over the exam's format. For many students, this is just as important as going over their reasoning skills or the chemical and physical foundations of biological systems. It's easy to be thrown off by an exam's format if you're not ready for it, but working with a private instructor can ensure that there won't be any surprises when you sit down to take the MCAT.

What are the benefits of working with Boulder MCAT tutors near me?

The biggest benefit of Boulder MCAT tutoring is that you will receive the undivided attention of an experienced private instructor. For some students, this is enough to help them better understand the material that will be on the exam. They are relatively free of the distractions that can sometimes come with classroom learning, and they won't have to worry about feeling ignored as just another face in a crowded lecture hall. Since you can receive the undivided attention of your private instructor, that instructor can get to know you and better understand how you learn and retain information. They can then use this information to come up with a customized lesson plan that makes things easier for you to understand. They might also be able to suggest a few strategies or even some apps that might make it easier to study on your own.

Boulder MCAT tutors also have the luxury of being able to focus on certain material that is difficult for you while glossing over what you already know well. If you already have a good handle on introductory chemistry and biology but you struggle with behavioral psychology, it doesn't make much sense to spend all of your time on those introductory subjects even if it should be technically part of your lesson plan. As your instructor gets to know you and where your strengths and weaknesses lie, they can develop a lesson plan that focuses mostly on the subjects that are harder for you to grasp. This plan can be changed as time goes on and your skills and knowledge improve.

Another advantage of working with Boulder MCAT tutors is that they often have more experience with the MCAT itself than many college or high school teachers. The MCAT is a challenging exam that can have a profound effect on your plans for medical school. It pays to be able to work with someone either in person or online who can give you a better idea of what to expect from the exam's format and what it is like to sit down and take it. Not only can they give you advice on how to manage your time for each section, but they might be able to provide some advice on how to overcome any test anxiety that you might be feeling.

You might also find that Boulder MCAT tutoring is more convenient than many college courses that you might need to take. While those courses require you to stick to a regular class schedule, that isn't always the case when you work with a private instructor. You should stick to some kind of regular tutoring schedule, but you will at least have some say over what that schedule is. Varsity Tutors can find Boulder MCAT tutors who can work with your schedule so you won't have to worry about missing work, school, or any extracurricular activities. Part of this is due to the option for online tutoring. You can certainly meet with your instructor in person, but online tutoring allows you to engage in study sessions from anywhere you have a reliable computer and a wi-fi connection. Working with an instructor online also gives you access to the Live Learning Platform. The platform also allows you to record your tutoring sessions so that you can review them later. During your sessions, you can make use of features such as video chat, a shared document editor, and a virtual whiteboard.
