* Hopkins Trained Step 1, 2 and 3 Tutor
  dakuzindabad - 05/24/19 22:01
  Dear All,

I am a seasoned USMLE Step 1 and 2CK tutor. I've been tutoring for 7 years (started 2012) now and myself achieved > 250 on Step 1 and Step 2CK. I am also an IMG and have trained at renowned institutions such as Hopkins, Cornell, Emory and others. In teaching and training over a hundred students, I have developed a solid and effective study technique. Now that I have some more free time, I am available for tutoring. I've found one on one tutoring with my technique to be very effective and I can accommodate those struggling to pass, those trying to achieve a 250+ and everyone in between. Some of my students have made jumps of >60 points on these exams and all except two have passed after enlisting my services. You may request my resume at and/or more information at your discretion.

Why not cut out the 3rd party firm and reduce your cost per hour?

I will be happy to give anyone who responds to this message a free consultation.

Please e-mail with any questions or to set up a free consultation. Your free consultation will include which resources to use, method of study and how individual tutoring under me will benefit you. Once enrolled, you will also benefit from a custom made study schedule, flashcards, a strategy tailored to your individual needs in addition to scheduled and goal directed tutoring sessions.

If you wish to read on, here is some information about my process:

My process includes the careful selection of materials for each exam (some of which I have created on my own and digitized for ease of access), an introduction into the method of studying that I use, a personalized and tailored study schedule and scheduled, goal directed tutoring sessions. Since I use professional video-conferencing software, I am able to tutor students anywhere, regardless of geography or time zone restrictions.
The core of my process are the individual tutoring sessions. My sessions involve completing USMLE world questions together. This allows me to not only review the relevant content with each student, but also carefully train students to dissect questions, develop differential diagnoses, develop disease-pattern recognition skills and general test taking strategy. I find that this process improves students’ scores on average by 30-40 points and on intensive tutoring, by 60 points.
Also, of immense benefit, are the built in NBME assessment examinations that I have my students take. Once completed, I review these exams with my students and coach them through their mistakes. This fine-tuning often results in enormous confidence boosts and better results on test day.
Finally, because I very successfully managed the residency match process as an IMG, I have much to offer in terms of advice in preparing the ERAS application and securing excellent interviews (I can provide you a list of my interviews, which included MGH, Hopkins, Cornell, Columbia, Yale and others).

Looking forward to hearing from you.

  ‘”’Cooking Hamburgers’ ...?

I do not know about you…but an IMG’s passage of the USMLE with a first attempt high score, for almost anyone with reasonable (1 year) US clinical experience, creates a 70-85% chance of matching in a primary care residency in the USA. Failure, will seriously reduce those numbers…We are not ‘looking for hamburgers, or pizza deliveries…, ‘ in order to get their (Amazon?) ratings. The numerous –personally failed-people that write very unusual and unverified information on these fora, appear to not have any “idea what they are talking about...“ (‘blind leading the blind???...’).

They also fail to realize that given the above-described importance of the USMLE, and 1 year of “hands-on-“ US Clinical Experience with excellent correlated, Letters Of Recommendation, that these credentials are very likely (add Spanish speaking, and research, and grad degrees etc) to lead to jobs that will start at $160K, and escalate very quickly-with 4-5 years of practice experience- to $210-$270+k per annum in total compensation packages.

In light of the above overall circumstance, I strongly advise you to view an IMG- friend’s (Now a PGY-V) ‘real story-‘ 206,354+ views-(FULL-BLOWN WORK-UP)- blog with the keywords’ search terms provided below (along with a topical index). GL and GB YOU..
