"Hope is not a strategy. Luck isn't either. To get a high USMLE score, there is no one size fits all and no specific treasure map. One must be determined to be consistently consistent and persistent. Destination 260 is NOT on your GPS for the USMLE. The student is the driver, the tutor is merely the passenger navigating and giving you proper direction and guidance.

"Hope is not a strategy. Luck isn't either. To get a high USMLE score, there is no one size fits all and no specific treasure map. One must be determined to be consistently consistent and persistent. Destination 260 is NOT on your GPS for the USMLE. The student is the driver, the tutor is merely the passenger navigating and giving you proper direction and guidance. Invest in your career and hire me for career assessment and advice, and of course for all you internal medicine tutoring needs for USMLE S1 or S2 CK or comlex L1 or L2. I am humbled and fortunate to have such amazing self-driven students, having tutored over 100 students from both US medical schools and international medical schools since 2007 with a 100% pass rate (so far - knock on wood please). For those who have failed in the past and have intermittent issues with confidence, I can help. There are never any guarantees - so be careful when someone guarantees you a specific score, because if you fail, or worse, get a barely passing score, that guarantee won't erase the poor score from you record, thus affecting your chances for a U.S. residency program. Please contact me once you are serious about making a stand. I have had one international student with 5 failed exam attempts over a 10 year period, who put his (last) faith in me and I brought him the strategy based on where he stood with the material. He passed Step 1 and Step 2 CK back to back over several months of tutoring within the same year. That person I am proud to say has just finished his child psych fellowship from Bronx-Lebanon Hospital and is now board-certified. Anything is possible. Invest in your career." less...
