    I wanted to ask for advice on highly recommended guaranteed USMLE tutors, prep providers or a teacher who has the gift of teaching the worlds toughest medical licensing exam in the most easy to understand, enjoyable style with the right strategy. Something where extremely weak students can vouch for has helped them pass this exam.

    A very dear loved one i know failed this exam once after studying on her own for 6 months with a bad score and is now suffering from depression, self doubt and loss of confidence. She struggled hard to complete her MBBS from Pakistan but after failing this exam, is now thinking of just giving up and doing something else in life.

    I don't want her to give up this easily just because she failed the exam once. I understand that she must be feeling down right now after spending 6 months trying to study for this exam and in the end failing badly. But i feel there must be some tutor out there who knows how to prepare weak students and help them pass this exam.

    Will be grateful for people's tips, referrals, guidance, suggestions

    My wife took the exam back in 2008, she passed all three steps in first attempt with upper 90.
    From what I remember, she mostly studied from "First Aid" and took a couple of classes at Kaplan. There wasn't a one to one tutor involved at any point. She also did quite a bit of "Board review Questions and practice tests".


    I think there are tons of lectures and videos that explain everything in pretty good detail.
    And it's mostly up to the student as to how he/she trains her brain to retain the knowledge and develop the skill to accurately express it in quick time.

    I don't think I've ever heard of a famous tutor who specialists in one on one tutor for USMLE - but then again, my info must be out dated since it's more than 12 years now.

    Thanks. I am assuming your wife must be academically blessed MA and will have the ability to self study successfully.

    Unfortunately there are some students who aren't that academically blessed and need special help. I am hoping to find that one special tutor or individual who will be a godsent and can help the person in question out.

    My wife was not academically blessed. It was all due to my company. hehehehheh :D

    But on a serious note,
    Perhaps your loved one can look into some sorta "group study" setup where she can openly ask questions and try to understand the crux in an informal environment?

    Or perhaps with a former student who has aced USMLE and they have good effective communication skills? I think some Indian students provide this service, but then again, you never know how good are they?
