What our students say
about Dr. Donnelly!
"Dr. Donnelly's private tutoring stands apart from other mainstream/commercial review programs because he isolates an individual's weaknesses and tailors a successful review and test-taking strategy that conforms to an individual's needs -- rather than those of the masses. Dr. Donnelly was able to quickly understand and dissect my thought process in order to help me break old habits and establish stronger test-taking skills so I could get that higher score I wanted."
"Stuart's strategies were very helpful in tackling the MCAT passage based questions. After just a few meetings, I felt more confident approaching the exam. I just got my scores and I did very well!! I got a 518 overall/97th percentile (130 on chem/phys and bio, 127 on CARS, and 131 on psych/soc). Thanks for your help preparing!"
"I worked with Dr. Donnelly over the summer to improve my MCAT. Dr. Donnelly has many tricks to simplify everything - from passages to math equations to detailed physics concepts. We met both in person and via Skype. He provided all of the study material, was incredibly patient, and overall just a great instructor. I definitely recommend anyone taking the MCAT work with Dr. Donnelly - you'll see results"

Private MCAT® Prep with Dr. Donnelly
Free Initial Consultation And Assessment
If you are new to private tutoring or test prep - don't worry. During your free initial consultation, Dr. Donnelly will administer a short assessment to determine if there are any gaps in your background knowledge of the basic concepts that appear on the test. The assessment usually takes about 30 minutes. You will also get to see Dr. Donnelly's tutoring skills in action, and by the end of the initial consultation, you should feel confident that Dr. Donnelly is the right tutor for you.
Based on the initial assessment, Dr. Donnelly will be able to advise you on the correct number of hours of tutoring that you will probably need to reach your target score. If you decide that Dr. Donnelly is the right tutor for you, he will work with you to help you plan your entire MCAT® prep timetable and set up a regular tutoring schedule.
Customized Lessons That Focus On Your Needs
Dr. Donnelly's tutoring focuses on quality over quantity. After the initial assessment, each lesson becomes increasingly individualized as Dr. Donnelly adapts the curriculum to your particular test-prep needs. Any weaknesses are quickly addressed to solidify your conceptual and methodological foundations.
If, on the other hand, you've already done some test prep and feel comfortable with your background knowledge of the Physical Sciences and the Biological Sciences, then Dr. Donnelly will focus more on the concepts and question types that are troubling you most.
Either way, Dr. Donnelly's patient step-by-step teaching style will help to build your confidence in each topic and greatly improve your test-taking skills.
Unique MCAT® Strategies
As a dedicated full-time MCAT® tutor and test prep specialist, Dr. Donnelly has developed several unique strategies that are extremely efficient in dealing with the passage-based problem that appears on the test. These methods are easy to learn and help students to improve their test-taking skills immensely.
Knowing the most efficient approach is the key to improving one’s score. Stuart's students are often amazed at how quickly their scores improve significantly (often after just a few hours of tutoring). Many of his new students tell him they learned more during their first lesson with him than they did previously during entire courses with other tutors or test prep centers.Contact Dr. Donnelly
