You may be struggling in your medical/dental school, and feel like a failure. You may have big academic goals, and feel like you need help in reaching them. Could a medical tutor help? Much of what we learn best is learned from individual instruction, whether it be from parents, grandparents, mentors, friends, co-workers, or teachers. We each have unique needs and ways of learning, and tutoring taps into this effective method of teaching and learning. But can a medical tutor help you? Would it be worth the cost in time and money? Should you get a medical tutor?

Since ancient times, skills and knowledge have been passed on through one-on-one instruction, and it is as effective today as it has always been. As a medical college teacher and owner of Anatomy Guru – a medical academy, I have seen the value of individualized instruction—the more individualized the instruction, the better.

I believe that tutoring can always improve learning. But this does not mean every student should have a tutor. Hiring a medical tutor is an investment, and like any investment, the costs must be weighed against the benefits. How much do I stand to benefit from hiring a medical tutor? Will the benefit outweigh the cost? There are at least three important questions to consider when deciding whether to get a medical tutor.

First, how well you are currently performing in your internals exams of medical/dental college? Obviously, if you are already doing well, you may not need a medical tutor. But then again, that depends on what level of performance is acceptable to you. Many people may think of medical tutors when they are failing or doing poorly, and of course, medical tutoring is an important option in such cases. A medical tutor can make the difference between passing and failing, graduating and not graduating, good doctor and bad doctor. But a medical tutor can also help make the difference between a low grades and an A, and this can also be a good reason to get a medical tutor.

The second consideration is your motivational level. Are you really trying? Are you willing to put real effort into learning? Is improvement really important to you? No matter what your reason for seeking a medical tutor, it is unlikely to help if you are not motivated or not really trying. Before you call for a medical tutor, look inside yourself, and ask yourself whether you really want to do better, and how badly you want it.

If you are having trouble with motivation, a medical tutor may be able to help, but he or she will need to start by working on your motivation and goals, rather than Anatomy, Physiology, or other subjects. Before you can improve your grades, you have to want to do so. Medical tutoring is not a magic pill. The medical tutor cannot download the understandings and skills into your mind. He or she is there to help you acquire your own skills and understanding. That requires your action.

The question of motivation is closely tied to the next one: What are your goals? If you are not motivated to perform in your medical/dental college, it may be because you simply value something else more highly.

What are your goals and priorities in life? If you have never answered these questions, now is the time to start. You may find that answering this question solves the rest of the problems automatically.

The tutor cannot answer this for you. Only you know what you want out of life. For many people, fogginess about goals and priorities automatically leads to struggles with motivation. So, set some goals. Read Stephen Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Effective People (or Sean Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens), and do some real soul-searching. “Know thyself”, as Socrates put it. A tutor or mentor can help you sort it out. For a challenging perspective, watch this video on YouTube.

Setting goals will help answer the question of how well you need to do in your medical/dental college. What are your goals, and what kinds of marks do you need to achieve them? For some reputed medical institutions offering post-graduation and super specialty courses, “just pass” may not be acceptable, and straight A’s may help you stand out. Medical tutoring takes time, and the more work you put into it, the more you will get out. You may need to reevaluate your priorities and reassess your whole schedule. A goal setting and life-coaching program can help you to sort out these issues, set goals and clear priorities, and plan your schedule accordingly.

If you decide that improving your academic performance is an important goal for you, then the benefits of medical tutoring may well outweigh the cost. Medical tutoring could make the difference between clearing your University examination and not clearing the University examination, getting a PG specialty of your choice and not getting a PG specialty of your choice, getting a job in reputed medical college/Hospital and not getting a job in reputed medical college/Hospital, getting the respect of being called as wonderful doctor and not getting the respect of being called as wonderful doctor. Medical tutoring may cost you time and money, but if you have the need and the motivation, medical tutoring is a time-tested and powerful tool at your disposal. Every one of us is a unique individual, but we don’t have to “go it alone”.
