Review and preview. Staying on track means staying ahead.
Learning key concepts early is a huge advantage. Our tutorials cover lectures a week in advance, addressing difficult concepts that normally waste your time during self-study, making even the hardest lectures a breeze.
Semester 1: Two hours, once/week per core paper (total 3 tutorials/week) – Mon, Tues, Thurs
Semester 2: Two tutorials per week for MEDSCI 142 – Monday learns ahead of lectures while Thursday is a dedicated review session.
All of our regular tutorials are held at our main office at Future Stables, Level B, 16 Anzac Ave (7-minute walk from University of Auckland)
Our classes are first-in-first-served with typically 20-30 students per class. We cap each regular tutorial at 40 students physically attending. More can join via our live streaming link.
All of our tutorials are live streamed to our students. These links are sent out after sign-up for each class and the cost to attend a live-stream is the same as to physically attend. Questions asked via live stream will be checked and answered if appropriate by the tutor during the lesson.
We don’t aim for “good enough”. Our A+ class tutors are hand-picked, expertly-trained, constantly evaluated, grass-fed, and free-range. Our training program uses the same methods as Harvard and other top universities.
Our lessons are designed to strategically cut away what’s useless, rearrange the material and explain it in a way that makes sense to you, at a pre-medical level. That means you can focus on learning what’s important.
Students always underestimate how much of a difference their peer and friend groups make in such a competitive environment.
JTT is a community and our classes are a pre-medical family. Our students say that the most valuable thing that they get out of the tutorials is actually the!
Class Pass is our way of making classes ridiculously accessible and affordable. We know that the social capital gained from classes makes a difference. The friendships formed during classes are often lifelong.
Each Class Pass holder has access to:
- Every regular class for the year (excluding test and exam reviews)
- Livestream links for each class
It costs just $99 to sign up as a one-time-fee, and $30 a week after that. That’s correct. You pay for one class and get three back.
And we have even more discounts if you pay for the full year upfront!
Students with particular needs, either at lower or higher achievement levels. Also a preferred option for many post-graduates.
Fully individualised learning
Maximum ability to ask questions
Tailored level of intensity
More costly than classes
No social capital
Our tutors are exclusively hand-picked from the top students of each paper, then meticulously trained and evaluated for quality control. We’ve crafted an evidence-based service to provide you with perfect-fit support.
Tutorial times are decided at the preference and convenience of you and the tutor. Our online tutor booking form allows you to set your preferences.
Location of tutorials is decided between the student and tutor. Sessions are typically held on university campus.
We want this to be as flexible as possible for you. There is no minimum obligation for number of private sessions and tutorials may be arranged as often as you like (as long as the tutor is available). You can use as many or as few tutors as you want.
We currently offer tutoring services for CHEM 110, BIOSCI 107, POPLHLTH 111, MEDSCI 142 and PHYSICS 160 at the University of Auckland.
For assistance with MMI or interview, please see our MMI/Interview page.
If you are looking for academic support outside of these topics, please enquire with us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We regularly provide support for students in high school and other degrees via personalised plans.
Our tutors are all trained to deliver effective and individualised academic support in the same philosophy and approach that Justin uses in his own practice.
Your tutor will meet with you to discuss your needs, evaluate your strengths and weaknesses and understand your expectations. They will then teach you the subject in an optimised way to help it make sense for you.
Unlike most other companies, we try to work ourselves into redundancy.
We place an extremely strong emphasis on creating independent learners. Our tutors will not only teach you what to know, but also how to think about it. Over time, and with diligent study, you should be less and less dependent on our tutors.
Our tutors are hand-picked from amongst A+ achieving medical students. That means that not only are they top achievers, but they are also the students who genuinely care about you and your experience.
Our feedback consistently reflects how impressed our students are with how genuinely supportive our tutors are.

Our academic coaching is our specialty service. We work with students globally, guiding students to unlock their full learning potential.
Though it has a disproportionately high impact, it is also the most challenging for students to complete successfully. Students are only accepted onto our program after this initial evaluation session.
Academic coaching is a specialist service. Unlike tutoring, which teaches you the content, academic coaching aims to make tutoring completely unnecessary by increasing your raw learning ability.
Coaching is also a medium- to long- term pay-off. Students typically opt for either 2 month cram courses or 6 to 9 month development programs.
Studying is something most students like to think they are pretty good at. After all, they have often been doing it for over a decade. Unfortunately, a tiny minority of students are actually studying in ways that are efficient.
We use evidence-based learning principles to target exactly what your key learning strengths and limitations are to design a step-by-step plan to unlocking more productive cognitive habits. It is extremely individualised and often also covers areas such as time management, stress management, focus, and motivation.
We’re confident in our program and are always happy to discuss the specific details of how we do what we do. If you’re interested in learning more, get in touch with Justin directly at email@example.com
The evaluation will be performed by a Level 3 academic coach or Level 4 Learning Specialist. It takes approximately 1 hour.
The evaluation achieves three goals:
- Comprehensively examines your studying system and other related factors for academic success
- Identifies areas of key weakness and strength to create a tailored, best-practice strategy to increasing efficiency
- Assessing suitability for acceptance onto our coaching program.
Even if you are not accepted onto the program, you will find significant value in our industry-leading level of assessment. For information on how we assess suitability for acceptance, see “Who is accepted?” below.
We have the most comprehensive academic coach training program in NZ and Australia. We’re proud to say that our coaches represent not only the top academics, but also the most capable academic coaching professionals in the country.
Academic coaches are students or professionals with the following minimum criteria:
- At least 20 years of age or older
- A+ average academic record at University level
- At least 6 months of supervised tutoring or mentoring experience
- Exceptional interpersonal and communication skills
- At least 20 hours of learner development training
- Successfully passed our rigorous training course
- Successfully passed our interview process
Learning specialists are coaches with significantly greater experience, knowing, and training.
We don’t “give tips”. We craft incredibly detailed and strategically optimised plans for academic development.
We have found that successful students are:
- Motivated and willing to accept help and change
- Driven individuals but open-minded to challenging ideas
- Genuinely invested in improving as a learner in order to achieve their goals
If this is not you, we recommend you explore our learning courses on our Academy first.
As a specialty service, we quote based on value and expected time required, rather than by number of sessions or per hour.
As our packages are completely individualised, the price is completely variable. As a general rule, it is moderately more expensive than simple content tutoring. Needless to say, it is more effective than content tutoring also.
Would you rather be given the information you need to pass, or would you rather be naturally smart enough to figure it out yourself?
Tutoring does the former, while coaching does the latter.
In our multi-factor screening evaluations, only 1% of students study at greater than 60% efficiency. Importantly most students are not clear on how to improve this. Coaching can save potentially years of trial and error, not to mention the grades and stress sacrificed in the process.
Our previous students have historically seen study efficiency improvements of double or more across 3 to 6 months. To put that in perspective, imagine studying literally half the hours for a better result.
Studying, like health, is a topic that most people feel like they know about. However, this is rarely the case. Students are usually very surprised at how specific, comprehensive and impactful our recommendations and evaluations are.
