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 am a 4th year medical student at Michigan Medical School and am applying into Internal Medicine with a significant interest in residencies with Clinical Educator tracks. I also have a strong interest in critical care and resuscitation.

When I was attending the University of Minnesota for undergrad, I had my first experience tutoring science courses. Now, 5 years later, I can confidently say I've found a life-long passion for teaching that I continue to work towards every day, and will incorporate into my future career. At the University of Michigan Medical School, I've excelled when it comes to USMLE test taking, scoring above the 99th percentile on USMLE Step 1 and USMLE Step 2, but I continue to strive to learn more every day. I can help you succeed not only on the USMLE board exams, but also in the clinical setting with high-yield clinical tips.

Let's work together to help you achieve the very most you're capable of, and have fun doing it!

Andrew Chevalier

I am a 4th year medical student at University of Michigan Medical School and am applying to med-peds residency programs this year.

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 have 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'm also a 4th year medical student at the University of Michigan Medical school.

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!

Katherine He

I am a 4th year medical student at the University of Michigan Medical School and am applying to academic general surgery programs this year.

I earned undergraduate dual degrees in Environmental Sciences and French literature at UC Berkeley. During and after college, I taught organic chemistry and courses in MCAT preparation for 5 years. In medical school, I have continued to hone my teaching skills through teaching undergraduate anatomy. I am passionate about helping students succeed through 1) coaching exam taking skills and 2) helping students build their studying skillset so they can study efficiently independently.

I have a demonstrated record of success on standardized USMLE and NBME exams, but more importantly, have helped many students attain their academic career goals. I am looking forward to working together!


Henry Lather

I'm a fourth year medical student at the University of Michigan Medical School and am applying into Anesthesiology.

I did my undergrad at Washington University in St. Louis, graduating summa cum laude in Biomedical Engineering. I have always been passionate about teaching, and during my time at WashU, I tutored students in engineering and chemistry, as well as being a TA for a large physiology course.

In medical school, I have continued to tutor with the Office of Medical Student Education. Additionally, I performed extremely well on my USMLE and NBME exams, earning membership in AOA. Throughout medical school, I have used Anki to attain long-term retention of large amounts of knowledge.

In my free time, I enjoy mountain biking, backpacking, and playing sports. I look forward to working 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).
