JTT Academy

Everything you need to study ahead or stay up to date.

No more private tutorials from unreliable tutors.
No more rushed cram courses or overcharged workshops that don't work.

Academy is the secret weapon used by 100's of top students to stay ahead and keep stress-free.

symptoms of a struggling student
  • Trying to get ahead but unsure how to effectively
  • Going to lectures but feeling more confused
  • Sacrificing hours to study but barely keeping up
  • Spending more time looking for answers than actually learning
  • Feeling good but performing poorly in the exams
  • Lost and unsure how to manage your time

If this is you, we get it.

It doesn’t feel good to put in 10x the effort for 1/10th the result.
It doesn’t feel good to reject every social outing just to keep up with the students at the top.
It doesn’t feel good even if you’re at the top, but under constant pressure and uncertainty of whether it’s enough, especially if you had to sacrifice all your time and energy to get there.

And after nearly 10 years and 2000 students, we're finally able to offer you a better way...

Innovation through experience

Our courses are more than just video tutorials. We’ve managed to leverage our industry-leading expertise into an accessible format.

Learn the material while you get smarter

We’ve integrated the highly effective components of our learning specialist programs into each course. As you progress through the content, you not only learn the material, but you actually learn to study smarter and much more efficiently.

How we construct each course


Some things just aren’t taught clearly. Professors can have expert bias. Content can be overwhelming and messy. Ideas are often hard to connect.

We go through the courses for major university pre-medical programs and connect all the detailed material to their fundamental underlying concepts.


We know that not all explanations are equal.

Every concept is examined to identify the easiest way for high-school and first-year university students to understand it at an A+ level.


Teaching effectively is about creating logic and meaning.

Topics are re-organised and re-taught by our hand-picked A+ tutors with supplementary material to facilitate each step.


A good tutor works themselves into redundancy.

Key, bite-sized studying tips are integrated throughout each course to gradually increase the efficiency of your studying. These tips alone have a massive impact!

On Academy it'll be a 14-minute video, but in the lecture they take like 50 minutes to explain the same thing and not as well.

Apart from teaching extremely well, JTT places a large emphasis on having good studying techniques... after implementing their advice, I began to study far more effectively using a fraction of the time I used to spend.

Learning tip

When we introduce lots of new terminology and functions it’s easy to get tied down with trying to memorise it all in one go. Unfortunately, this slows us down and stops us from making logical sense of it. A better technique you can easily use is to split your studying into three steps...

Step 4

Increase Your Independence

Our courses are designed so that your studying techniques become more efficient as you go. Gain a competitive edge with both lecture content and your study system.

Like everyone, I was always sceptical about tutoring companies including JTT but I gave them a chance and to this day am very glad that I did. What differentiates JTT from other companies is the genuineness and authenticity that perpetuates in their services. They provide beyond what students even know what they are looking for and because of this, build a strong rapport to enable their academic prosperity. Because of this JTT will always remain dear to my heart.

You see all those posts and hear those rants not to trust external tutorial companies for pre-med especially because you'll apparently be scammed but this couldn't be further from the truth. JTT provides a safe and supportive environment which genuinely helps you through out the whole year... A family that you will never forget and who all want to change the world as much as you do.

JTT has kept me motivated and given me a healthy, encouraging, and inspiring support network of friends and tutors. The JTT team is so incredibly supportive and helped make a stressful year more fun and doable than I ever anticipated going in.

When reading JTT reviews myself at the start of the year, I was initially skeptical about how amazing and holistic a premed service could be. Attending JTT lessons hosted by excellent tutors and building supportive relationships with my peers has furthered my learning techniques in unforeseeable ways. One of the most valuables lessons from JTT is what a career in medicine actually entails without romanticism. Highly recommend!

JTT academy is actually the most useful and helpful resource out there. I'm just a few weeks in and I've learnt a lot of content in a depth I have never before. The tutors are really helpful and also the way in which they approach learning itself has allowed me to be a much better student. Would definitely recommend for anyone serious about not only getting into med but also wanting to improve their learning standards

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Each subject comprehensively covers all main topics and concepts in the respective University of Auckland curricula. Each topic is broken down into digestible chunks of 5 to 20 minutes each. This is to allow razor focused revision.

Currently, we cover approximately 90% of content of University of Auckland semester 1 core papers to an A+ level of depth – more than any other resource. By end of January we will cover 95-99% of all core papers for the year, including MEDSCI 142 and the non-core PHYSICS 160.

Absolutely not. In fact, this is better in almost every way. We actually replaced our physical early preparation course for Academy because it was so clearly superior.

Some students want physical tutoring because they believe they have unique questions that need individualised support. The truth is, 99% of questions are repeated. Our Academy courses anticipate those common questions and answer them within our explanations, reducing the need for physical lessons.

Here’s what Academy allows that normal tutoring or workshop courses don’t:

  1. Unlimited replay and revision.
  2. Progression at any place, entirely at your own pace. You’re not locked into a course schedule.
  3. No minimum or maximum amount per “session” – you do as little or as much as you want.
  4. Get ahead as far as you want for no extra price.
  5. Continuous access to resources.
  6. Quality checking by multiple people, with constant improvement over time.
  7. Evidence-based study improvement techniques.

Here’s what you get with Academy that you also get with normal tutoring:

  1. Question and answer time with an individual tutor – you have access to this for free and unlimited with our Classroom.co.nz
  2. Accountability – we have an accountability mentor program built into the Academy to make sure you are on track. In fact, the milestones we have set up are far more rigorous than what a normal tutor can provide due to our enormous experience.

Yes, absolutely.

What we find is that high school students do not spend enough time learning how to study effectively before university. This can have serious consequences in both experience and outcome.

We recommend all high school students to start our Study Smarter courses as early as possible. Most of our early preparation students will begin studying material a month or two before the University semester begins, however they start to refine their studying techniques up to a year or two prior.

Besides, we will extend your Plus membership for as long as you need it (for free)!

Unlike other companies, we are a social enterprise. Our primary goal is not to make a profit, but to assist students. We charge because we need the revenue to pay our staff, fund our support services and fuel our social impact programs.

We want the best support to be available for as many students as possible, and we strongly disagree with the extortion of vulnerable students and parents that plagued the market.

All of our resources are custom created by us, based on extensive experience tutoring individual students. We know how first-year and high-school students think, and we know how to explain them in easier, more concise ways.

We also integrate a large amount of study efficiency tips as part of the course. This means your ability to study effectively should increase as you progress through the course.

Furthermore, every student is given access to our Orientation and Optimisation course, which addresses all the major mistakes students typically make and how to overcome them.

Exactly as it sounds, we hold a workshop before the beginning of the year to make sure all of our Academy Plus students are hitting the year with the right processes and the right mindset.

After assisting students for so many years, we can tell very quickly when a student has red flags early on. This workshop leverages that experience to immediately address possible risks and weaknesses before the year begins.

Our courses cover approximately 99% of University of Auckland material and 90% of Otago material (for the respective papers).

For the sheer amount of resources you receive and the in-depth Study Smarter, time management, and stress management courses, it is easily an investment that pays for itself.

We will also be adding more courses to eventually cover 99% of Otago content also.
