Welcome to Impact Medical Tutoring

Our goal is to help you use your time as efficiently as possible. Tutoring is only a small piece of the puzzle when it comes to performing well on USMLE Step 1, Shelf Exams, and USMLE Step 2. This tutoring service is for individuals who are motivated and dedicated toward doing well, but need the tools to help them reach their full potential. Each tutoring session focuses on these four core areas:

We are located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, but the bulk of our tutoring is done online via Skype, Google Hangouts, and GoToMeeting. We've found that video sessions with screenshare are both convenient and efficient for students. If you're located in Ann Arbor, we're happy to hold the tutoring session at our office, but the vast majority of sessions are held remotely.

Our Method

Core Knowledge Development

The fundamental of doing well is understanding the content you need to answer the question. During each session, we will spend time reviewing the content you've been struggling with. I encourage students to send me a list of topics in advance of a tutoring session! For clinical students looking for help on shelf exams, I like to spend time talking through high yield points for that clerkship.


Strength and Weakness Assessment

Each session, we will discuss where you are excelling and what your areas for improvement are. Self assessment of your strengths and weaknesses can be extremely difficult and it is often helpful to have an outside pair of eyes weigh in.



Test Taking Skills

Once you have the knowledge base to do well, the only thing holding you back is learning the ins and outs of taking USMLE exams. Students find it really helpful to sit down with me and do questions. I give them a chance to read through the question and reason through the answer, then we talk about the reasoning process and what we can take away from this question and apply to the next one.


Time Management / Study Tools

As mentioned above, tutoring appointments are meant to consolidate knowledge and parse out a student's strengths and weaknesses. They are not meant to be the mainstay of a student's study routine. My goal is to help teach you how and what to study so that you can do so most effectively. Do you ever feel like you read something from First Aid over and over, but it just doesn't stick? Let's talk.

Our Expertise

About Our Tutors

Tom Goslinga

I graduated from the University of Michigan Medical school and am completing my residency training at the University of California - San Francisco in Internal Medicine. I also have a strong interest in clinical education and critical care.

When I was attending the University of Minnesota for undergrad, I had my first experience tutoring science courses. Now, years later, I can confidently say I've found a life-long passion for teaching and will incorporate it into my future career. At the University of Michigan Medical School, I've excelled when it comes to USMLE test taking, placing in the top percent nationally.

Test taking and is only one aspect to how I can help. I can also help you succeed in the clinical setting with high yield clinical tips.

I believe knowing the why is the best way to remember the what. Let's work together to help you achieve the very most you're capable of, and have fun doing it!

Andrew Chevalier

I graduated from the University of Michigan Medical school and am completing my residency training at the University of Utah in Internal Med-Peds.

I attended Kenyon College for undergrad, where I earned my bachelor's in chemistry with a minor in physics. I first became interested in teaching at Kenyon, where I worked for several years as a tutor for chemistry, physics, biology, and calculus. As I progressed through medical school, my love for teaching has only grown. In my studies, I used many types of resources and many review book series, and feel comfortable advising on which are best to use. My study strategies have enabled me to perform extremely well on the standardized USMLE and NBME exams, and I hope to help you do the same!


Alex Blaty

I graduated from the University of Michigan Medical school and am completing my residency training at the University of Utah in Internal Medicine.

I earned my bachelor's of science in physics and astronomy and a minor in biophysics before beginning medical school. I began tutoring in physics and organic chemistry during my time as an undergrad and hope to make teaching an important part of my future career. In my free time, I love sailing, backpacking, kayaking, and pretty much anything else outdoors.

When it comes to to tutoring, my specialty is study strategies and resource utilization to maximize short and long term retention. If you're lost in the sea of resources available, or feel like you're putting the hours in, but not getting the results you expect, let's talk!

Crystal Rui

I am a 4th year medical student at the University of Michigan Medical School and am applying into likely either anesthesiology or internal medicine. I did my undergrad the University of Michigan graduating with highest distinction, double majoring in Cellular and Molecular Biology and Biopsychology, Cognition, and Neuroscience.

Throughout high school and college, I taught math and reading at Kumon Learning Center, and during medical school, I taught MCAT courses for a summer. Teaching has been something that I have always been passionate about teaching, particularly with helping students build a strong foundation and thoroughly understand the subject matter as opposed to just memorizing facts. I believe that this can help you critically think through not only high-level exam questions but also complicated patient situations that you will encounter during the course of your medical training.

In my free time, I enjoy playing with cats, photography, baking, and exploring new coffee shops. I look forward to working together with you!


Some students ask us why our rates are lower than others they have seen. What it comes down to is that we love teaching, we know what it's like to be on a medical student budget, and we have low overhead (hence why this website is so basic).
