How our test prep works
DETERMINE BASELINE & GOALS
First we establish your baseline score, either through a prior test or a new practice test. We’ll also discuss your admissions plan and timeline.
ESTABLISH A PLAN AND START PREPARING
Next, we’ll create a plan and your tutor will implement it with you. Sessions will occur regularly (with the same tutor) that take the stress out of the prep process while boosting your score.
MAKE SURE YOU’RE ON TRACK:
Once every few weeks we will reevaluate your progress and refine the study plan and tutoring to improve weak areas.
A Typical Test Prep session
Your tutor will review any prior “homework” with you, noting any errors so you recognize and avoid them in the future.
Your tutor will teach you the academic concepts covered by the exam. These might include math, science, reading comprehension, grammar, writing, etc.
It’s not enough to just learn content. Successful students understand how to recognize “patterns” in questions and avoid getting tricked.
You’ll learn how to combine content and strategy to tackle any question on the exam.
Your tutor will assign specific sections of the exam based on your session, and full-length exams (less often) to make you familiar with the test-taking environment.
Online and In-Person Tutoring
Online tutoring occurs via our convenient online lesson space. This is private tutoring (in real-time) just like having an in-person session—but it occurs remotely! Our online lesson space is easy to use and requires NO extra software. All the tools and features you need are built in: a virtual whiteboard, a text editor, a code editor, screen sharing, file sharing, and more. Both you and your tutor can use the tools simultaneously in real time, so it's just like you were sitting together at a desk!
Our in-person tutoring occurs at your home or at a convenient location. You can choose any productive study space near you such as a library or coffee shop. We'll schedule a session at a time and place that's ideal for you, and your tutor will commute to you! No more driving to a test prep center just to do a bunch of boring worksheets!
Common Challenges with the PCAT
The Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT) is a standardized assessment for prospective pharmacy students. The test lasts about three and a half hours and includes sections on writing, biology, chemistry, critical reading, and quantitative reasoning. The PCAT is used to compare students' knowledge to that of other students. The PCAT, like other admissions exams, has a huge effect on your admissions competitiveness and financial aid opportunities. Since the PCAT is so detailed, it is important to establish both a learning plan and a test-taking strategy. For example, it is critical to pace yourself during the exam to finish all questions on time and leave some time left for analysis. TutorNerds creates a customized program for students that works well for them and increases their chances of success. Our tutors are familiar with the program and can teach methods that can help you score well on the PCAT.
How to get the best PCAT tutor near you
With young students who take PCAT, it's important to partner with a tutor who can explain these concepts in a way students can understand. The tutor needs to know the material, but also has to have experience working with young students in particular. It all comes down to experience: Has the tutor produced good results with PCAT students before. That's why students get results from TutorNerd: Our tutors make difficult concepts easy to understand (check out all our five-star reviews).
