Our tutors are the top educators in their respective fields. Becoming a tutor at Medlearnity requires a passion for education, a deep interest in helping other physicians-in-training, and an exceptional track record of exam performance. Every tutor brings their unique talents to Medlearnity, but as an organization, we also have established best practices to maintain a very high-quality educational experience.
Medlearnity offers flexible payment options between credit card (Stripe), PayPal, and payment plans over time through Affirm.
For a student taking an exam in 3-4 weeks, 10 or 20 hours of tutoring provides a substantial amount of practice and feedback. For students with a longer study duration, we recommend 30 or more hours. An important metric is how much time a student invests in self-study between tutoring sessions. If a student is studying full-time (8+ hours a day), meeting 2-3 times per week is a worthwhile investment given the amount of content covered. We like to think of tutoring + self-studying as synergistic forces that complement each other.
Improvements for our students are substantial. Students who complete >20-hours of tutoring often improve their scores by 20-30 percentile points. We've even had students who have previously failed a high-stakes exam like USMLE Step 1 work with us for Step 2 CK to score in the high 90th percentile with >260 scores. One of the essential factors in tutoring results is a student's diligence to self-study and our organization methods.
Yes, if a student would like to try a different tutor at Medlearnity, we are more than happy to facilitate this. Sometimes we even suggest a student try a session with a particular tutor given some specialized expertise – i.e., a student is interested in pediatrics, and one of our tutors is an advanced resident in pediatrics. Tutors are always in sync through session recordings and session notes.
Medlearnity has a 24-hour cancelation policy for all scheduled sessions. If there is any emergency preventing a student from attending a session, they must email their tutor as soon as possible. Students receive email notifications for all sessions, so session timings are always crystal clear.
For Medlearnity packages, if a student decides they no longer need all the hours in their current tutoring package, the tutoring package can be prorated to the number of hours completed. For example, if a student purchases a 20-hour package and completes 12-hours of tutoring, they have the option to switch their package to a 10-hour-package hourly rate.
Medlearnity keeps its prices up-to-date and transparent. If there are any discounts available, we will email our students and reflect any prices changes in our store.
