In this interview with Liam Martin, we discuss a revolutionary new tutoring program for Pre-Med prerequisites that is completely over the internet and telephone. Now you can have a grad student coaching you on study techniques, high yield facts, and efficiency.

In this episode, I interview Liam Martin a Pre-Med tutor who has gone pro.
If you are a medical student already, then you probably don’t want to listen to this episode. However, listen long enough to understand how this remote tutoring works and let me know if you would use remote tutoring for medical school.
Liam has put together a national network of graduate students that are each obtaining their Master’s or Ph.D.’s in the various premed prerequisites. He’s used his experience tutoring and studying successful students to devise specific programs for each course you need to take as a premed (biology, chemistry, etc.)
They build your confidence, motivate and hold you accountable to your study plan so that you can really achieve your goals.
Don’t make the mistake of taking premedical prerequisites early on in college and make B’s and C’s, not to mention worse grades or incompletes.
We all know that getting an A’s on prerequisite subjects are practically essential to get into medical school. A list of A’s on your college transcript can easily catch the attention of admissions staff when you apply to Med Schools. The prerequisites include Biology, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, English, and often Calculus. Always check with the medical schools you’re applying to and verify their admissions requirements.
Getting A’s initially in college seems hit and miss for many students. I get a lot of emails from people after they’ve damaged their science GPA.
I recommend starting off with their tutoring service for your prerequisite courses from the beginning to learn the study techniques and work ethic that they will instill. Then, you can decide if you can ace your courses on your own from that point onward.
These tutorials represent a robust way to prepare for tests in undergrad and especially when you’re about to take the MCAT.
If you sign up for tutorials, you will be expected to attend and participate. They allow you to have mini lectures, but mostly the time will be spent discussing the content to ensure that you leave the session with a thorough grasp of the material being covered.
The purpose of tutorials is that first it can promote clearer and deeper understanding through dialogues. This allows students to actively raise questions and draw on the knowledge or experience of the grad student.
This style of learning really caters to kinesthetic, audio and video learners as well as students who learn through discussion. An added benefit is building confidence to discuss advanced scientific topics in a public forum, which can help in medical school.
To get the most out of your tutoring sessions, here are some preparation steps that
1. Review the relevant lecture
2. Read or work on the set problems given.
3. Prepare questions on topics you don’t understand
