“Alice was incredible. One of her many strengths was her ability to target not only content but test-taking strategies. She walked me through passages and broke the test down into manageable pieces so I could better understand the questions and avoid trick answers. Cambridge Coaching has been incredibly receptive to my needs. Alice was the perfect fit.”

Lindsay, MCAT Student
“Alice was an excellent tutor and I would recommend her without hesitation. Not only did she know all the MCAT content inside and out, but she was also extremely helpful with test-taking strategy. Alice divided up and organized the study material and assigned homework, which was really helpful because I work full-time. She was always prepared and extemely supportive throughout the process. In the weeks leading up to the test, I was struggling with anxiety, and Alice went above and beyond to ease me. Truly an excellent tutor and friend!”
Official Score: 519.
“Alice consistently went above and beyond to make the MCAT experience as painless and positive as it could be. She came to every session prepared with materials and resources and set up an organized plan to keep me on track. She was also flexible whenever I needed to adjust the schedule and open to feedback for our sessions. I felt Alice was always there for me when I needed her. I was impressed with her knowledge, as well as her patience and compassion. I really enjoyed working with her and I am so grateful I had the opportunity to do so!”
“Cambridge Coaching has been great. I reached out after a summer of completing a two-month MCAT course with little-to-no success. Cambridge Coaching sensed my anxiety about the exam and matched me with Alice, whose organizational skills and mastery of the material helped me improve over 15 points! Alice was really good at helping me tackle my exam anxiety. She gave me specific techniques to apply throughout the studying and exam-taking process. She is precise in her explanations, supportive without being too lenient, and extremely knowledgeable about test-taking strategies. She not only helped me improve my score, but taught me how to enjoy learning.”
Score went from 500 to 515.
“Alice was super supportive and prepared for the sessions. She assigned material that boosted my understanding of the content, and offered great notes she had prepared to help me review. She eased my stress about the exam. Everyone at Cambridge Coaching is very helpful and responsive.”
Grace, MCAT Student
“In what can seem like a saturated MCAT prep market with homogenized class packages, Alice provided a breath of fresh air with personally tailored scholarly support. I had already taken the MCAT, so Alice provided a flexible study schedule to push my test-taking skills to another level. She was also supportive and responsive whenever I needed to adjust our study plan. I would highly recommend Alice for those pre-meds in a similar situation.”
Score went from 507 to 517.
